Very cool. I got the XP-L HI V2 3A – Neutral white version. I’m sure I’ll love it Smile

I like your tint,,,,nice!. I am not sure if SST40 comes in neutral?

I have no idea, to be honest. Say hello to your neighbor Jon for me. I buy all my batteries from him.

I will.How do I identify you?!! Glenn from L.I. N.Y.?!

I will be going back tomorrow or Monday to get a few more VTC5A for this light.

Good question. I don’t use my real last name on here for security reasons. I think Glenn from Long Island, NY would work.

BTW, I’ve spoken to him on the phone several times. He’s always been extremely nice and willing to answer all my questions.

A boost driver won’t fit in this light, will it?

I’m not a modder, but I believe it is said several times that it’s not going to fit. The FET driver is really compact; I’ve seen a picture of it somewhere. It’s probably a silly thought, but perhaps you can put a larger driver in it combined with an 18500 cell (with an 18650 tube)?

That’s what I thought, thanks for confirmation. I guess a spacer, like the two DBCustom uses with 20700 would work as well.

So I have a request to Hank:
Please make a D1 variant with XHP35 HI.
If it is several mm longer, that’s fine, it will still be compact.
If it is more costly (I expect significantly more), that’s fine, the closest competitor would be Zebra which is much costlier anyway. And lacks your great UI. And lacks 18350 tube.

D1 with XHP35 HI would have:

  • more lumens, depending on the driver
  • wider beam
    • larger hotspot
    • more spill
    • overall, it would likely stop being a thrower and become a more general-purpose light
  • much higher efficiency in high modes, higher efficiency across the board
    • longer runtime in all modes, regardless if the runtime is limited by heat or battery capacity

Your Emisar lights really stand out of the crowd. I believe this one would too.

As great as the D1 is in its current form, I have not ordered one. An XHP35 HI variant would be interesting for me too. Party

Is XHP35 really worth it? Sounds like you would get similar performance simply swapping the emitter to dedomed SST40, without the need for a boost driver.

I personally would not be bothered by the difference in throw. I’m interested in a constant output of 1500~2000 lumens independent of cell voltage. But this (FET vs constant output) has been discussed on several occasion in the D4 thread. Party

It would result in a similar peak performance. Maybe even higher, depending on a driver…but way lower efficiency.
At turbo levels XHP35 may produce half the heat (assuming same output now) and run 3 times longer until it needs to step down.
Also, dedomed would have the same beam profile as the current light. Domed would be floodier.

Mine came today. Well worth the $40 plus $5 for the 18350 tube. Can’t wait to check it out tonight.

I got my green one yesterday (3A bin), and I am seriously fascinated by this light. Before I took it outside I spent ages playing around with the UI, and it is just not possible to appreciate the amount of work that must have gone into programming the driver software, before actually experiencing it. Especially as I thought that the ramping would happen a lot more quickly, which would have made it a lot more difficult to set the output to the right level. But so far it has been working really smoothly. The throw was also much better than what I thought would be possible with such a small reflector. But the light also got hot faster than expected.

Really happy with my purchase – I might even add the shorter battery tube when I order the D4, even though I can’t see it ever being more than a gimmick.

There has been a serious lack of comparative beamshots on the last several pages…….

I have a question. I notice my D1 flashes once when you reach minimum or maximum brightness while ramping. But it also flashes once at about half brightness while ramping. Is this normal?

As the ramp is fast (2.5s to max) it sounds like the 350ma setting your going past. May just seem in the middle of the ramp…….of course I may be wrong!

Yes mine blinks at min and at max , also the 350ma level which is also the level when locked out, lock in and blinks twice. You get a pre set 350ma level like the D4 if makes sense.

I was just wanted to make sure the middle blink wasn’t a driver glitch.

It’s normal Glenn. Don’t worry, it’s not an Imalent! Cool This is top notch quality! Party

And soooooooo much fun!!! Big Smile I don’t know how I’m ever supposed to enjoy a light without ramping driver again… can’t stop going up and down, up and down, and up, and down again (ad nauseam) each time I walk my dog at night. Somehow it makes me feel like I’m at least 30 years younger again! Silly

It’s everything about the Emisar that simply puts a smile on your face. It’s the secure click of the button, the overall machining and finish, the smooth threads, the clean appearance of the spring section of the tailcap, the crisp lettering on the back and font and layout. Seriously, just check out the back of the Emisar for the lettering and experience how much effort has gone into it. Can’t wait to receive the “grainy” cyan and green versions. Party
For the record – and I’ve said this before – I’m not into ramping, and I’m not into FET drives. And yet I consider the Emisar perfection. Big Smile Beer

Thanks guys. Checked it out last night. Very impressive throw for such a small flashlight. It’s Glenn approved!

I know this may be a silly comparison, but has anyone tested the Emisar D1 (XPL-HI) against a Jaxman M8 (XPL-HI)?

Thanks Wink It is more of curiosity, as I have the Jaxman M8 under sight for so long, but not the Emisar D1 comes and makes things complicated Big Smile Facepalm Despite being different lights in terms of functioning, of course!
