Little to far out of the BOX for some around here. Maybe in another light. I like it.

Drifting away from Fritz’s concept, pure engineering.

Edit: already compromised with the addition of the taper at the front.

Whatever floats your boat.

Can Andúril do a battery check (and nothing else of the blinkies) in lock out mode? Would that a good feature?

Lockout mode does only the following:

  • Momentary moon. Emitter comes on at the lowest level (ramp floor) while button is held, but stays off otherwise. Useful for quick tasks without unlocking.
  • Unlock. Click 4 times to exit lockout mode.

On items with a lighted button, it can also do this:

  • 3 clicks: Change button brightness for lockout mode.
  • Click, click, hold: Change button brightness for regular “off” mode.

Reminds me a bit of the Thorens turntable I bought with money from my first real job. Replaced the original head with a light-weight version. And drilled a lot of vent-holes in it. All in the name of losing weight. The downside was that you needed to stay away when playing a record. Slip-stream, you know. The Thorens was not IP8, of course. But that did not matter, because it was not bought to be an EDC.

I still fire up my Garrard 401, SME 3009, Quad IIs and KEF transmission line monitors when I want to hear proper sound.

I like it. It matches the muzzle brake on my AR-15.

Agree that it’s not for this light. I am also torn between the original concept and the prototype with taper at the front.
I would be happy with either design.

I’m not torn. I didn’t like the minimalist first design. I do like the new design with a more aesthetically pleasing taper at the front. It makes a night-and-day difference to me. Then again, I don’t matter. I’m not on the list anyway. Silly

Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.

Oops, I broke the body-to-pill O-ring on my prototype today. I suppose I probably should have lubed that like six months ago when it first showed up.

Also, still bugging Lumintop for updates… but I haven’t gotten any news yet.
