Subscribed. Pining for NW/WW with sub-lumen, realistic turbo (something that will last longer than 20 seconds), some throw, small as possible.

ah yes, Im dreaming of the perfect light also
Copper body, w N219b 4500k
My Copper olight s mini has 0.5 sublumen that I like. but its not 18350

as far a realistic Turbo, how many turbo lumens can you live with, and how long do you want it to last?

The D4 w 18350 cannot do 1000 lumens for long, looks like it could do 500 lumens for about half an hour

That’s decent. But I recently read something about problem with D4 sub-lumen mode, couldn’t quite understand it, like either it didn’t exist or was hard to land on with ramping.

The D4 does not have a sublumen mode in stock form. A few more facts
the lowest low is 1.7 lumens
No true overdischarge protection
Not compatible with protected cells
No reversed battery polarity protection
Uses PWM above 150 lumens, and has no constant output regulation above that.
Im not a fan, but plenty of people are.

If I’m not mistaken it’s the “Eagle Eyes” tube:

But I’m not 100% sure. Hopefully someone will chime in with a definite answer.

I noticed today there’s an 18350 tube available for the Convoy S9 (S-series tube light with side switch):

Just adding some information since I have the Astrolux MH10 with the 18350 tube — I think it’s one of the most throwy flashlight for its size (almost rivals the Astrolux S3/BLF X5). I got the “neutral-white” tint, but its tint is more on the warmer side (maybe 4500K) — the tint is very similar to the Convoy S2+ XP-L Hi U6-4C and the Astrolux S1 ‘5A’ warm-white (not similar to the S1 ‘3D’ 5000K neutral-white).

Real flat-top 18350 cells won’t make contact with the positive nipple (eg. PKCell ICR/IMR18350 — need a magnet spacer and it will work).
Using KeepPower UH1835 (unprotected 18350 1200mAh), it works properly (UH1835 is a slightly-raised flat-top).
The KeepPower P1835C2 (protected 18350 1200mAh) will NOT fit the 18350 tube at all, tried inserting from both ends, won’t fit.

Thanks for posting the info, that light always reminded me of the Nitecore MH20.

I wanted to add the MH10 to the list in the OP but since it’s out of production and unavailable I couldn’t.

Is the Ultrafire S5 still currently available? I couldn’t find it.

I see this UltraFire S5 but I think you’re referring to the older S5 “tube light” circa 2012-2013? (But maybe it’s still available somewhere?)
https://www.tmart.com/UltraFire-S5-LED-10W-1000LM-300M-Spotlight-White-Flashlight-Set_p374425.html

XANES WT518 is also sold under many different brand names, but I’ll add it to the Lego List. Thanks for reminding me about it.

In case anyone’s interested here’s a few links for the Xanes WT518:

It appears that Neal’s SS35-1 is available on BG as Dito XG1.
There’s aluminum Dito XL1 but the BG site utterly fails to style own shop on that site, putting all the actual content off-screen. So I don’t even know the dimensions.

I highly recommend the Eagtac DX3B mini.

It’s an excellent light.

  • lightweight. Just 64g with Aspire 18350 installed
  • excellent neutral tint that’s not greenish
  • Great UI
  • Great feel in hand
  • Antiroll
  • Quite slim for an 18350 light (22.5mm wide at head. 82mm long)
  • Excellent output: 1770 out-the-front (note the manufacturer claims around 2400 lumens, but it’s explained somewhere in the instructions that those are emitter lumens not OTF).
  • Switch is small and stiff enough that lockout is not needed for regular pocket EDC. Chance of accidental activation is very low.

Biggest downsides of the DX3B:

  • USB cover can pop out in the pocket. It’s easy to put back into place though.
  • Not sure about the battery voltage indicator. It still gives 4 flashes even with the cell down to about 3.5 v
  • Doesn’t have a real moonlight mode.
  • Not cheap

I wish someone would sell a shorty tube for DQG Tiny 4th – this would make for a really small 18350 light since the 18650 version is only 87mm long. The 18350 version would be 57mm long.

The pro variant also has a magnetic tailcap, which is why it needs the extra 4mm. the regular DX3B mini has no magnet.

Lumintop GT Mini with 18350 tube (separately bought)

Eagle Eye X2R 18350 tube: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Eaglg-EyeF30-black-flashlight-host-inclu...
(I wonder if it’s the 18350 tube for the Convoy S2+, since I’ve tried to “lego” the S2+ 18350 tube on an EE X2R and it fits)

Convoy S2 seems to lego with the Convoy S2+ 18350 tube too

The tube is different from the S2+, at least in anodizing. The top threads of the S2+ shorty tube are not anodized (the edge is). On this tube the threads are all anodized! But, it if fits, maybe it works Wink

Can you or anyone confirm the compatibility of the S2 with the S2+ 18350 tube? I don’t own any S2 but would like to try it on a short version Glasses

I’m just curious to know. Have you tried both S2+ short tubes (silver and grey) with your Astrolux S41/S42, A6 maybe? I’m very familiar with the Convoy shorties, but I don’t have prebuilt Astrolux lights. I just want to know if I can try and use the Astrolux short tubes with some hosts that I have.

The threading of the Astrolux S1 short tube doesn’t fit the Convoy S2+ short tube and vice versa — I think their threading are different, which causes both to not completely screw inside each others tubes..

Okay, but have you tried both silver and grey? As you can probably tell, the silver and grey Convoys do not have the same fit. For some reason, they are built differently. The silver short tube (and the desert tan color as well) are for later generations of S2+, but they seem to go well with the older S2 tube.

Here is an image: Astrolux tube on the left, Convoy on the right!
The threads don’t match and don’t fit. Well, at least not in my Convoy S2+ flashlights!

EDIT: thanks d_t_a for confirming those matches on the tubes Wink Thumbs Up

Would you care to compare the silver or desert tan (sand) with the Astrolux? I’m more interested in the front thread or the front end for the head. The whole tailcap assembly can be bought anyway, at least for the S41/S42. Wink

I don’t have any Astrolux flashlight, only the tube (I bought it ‘cause I thought it would fit an headlamp I have, to make it shorty…It didn’t fit Facepalm )!
Can’t help with that mate Oops

Would you care to compare the silver or desert tan (sand) with the Astrolux? I’m more interested in the front thread or the front end for the head. The whole tailcap assembly can be bought anyway, at least for the S41/S42. Wink

I have Astro S1 on the way. I can compare to my S2+ DT, when I get it, if you let me know what exactly you want me to compare.
