Enjoying mine. XPL-HI 5000k. Love the mild diffuser on it. Right click and “view image” for full size. Taken with a Samsung Galaxy S9 phone, timer set to 5 seconds, on a cell phone mount, mounted on a tripod.

Though I’m more of a 4000k-4500k person, the 5000k makes the ice look “neutral” white. Very nice.

Nice folks, very nice! Making the wait for my clear ano with blue/purple and SST-20 95 CRI that much harder to deal with …

Hope they do my aux lights like yours contactcr, really looks good! I think I asked for purple on the outside and the inner ring ice blue, can’t remember exactly, but yours really does “shine!” Big Smile

Edit: Looked up my order and see that I ordered 5000K SST-20’s, also while I did ask for blue and purple aux I didn’t specify the arrangement, so I guess I have a mystery package coming. Wink

Pics like those make me happy that I also chose the XPL-Hi 5000k 

 Did you happen to notice how long it could sustain that max output before getting too hot?

I realize what it says in the description. I can usually reflect it on a ceiling light and see an obvious coating but it’s not so apparent.

It was cold outside, so I really didn’t hang out very long to find out. I would guess I was outside for at least 3 or 4 minutes, but it was 25ºF outside. No stepdown and the light warm but not hot

Yeah… I haven’t updated the diagram yet because there’s nowhere left to fit more actions. Also, because some lights don’t have aux LEDs so they don’t have the extra functions.

I should probably also do something to make it easier to read when printed in black and white. On a cheap print, the green lines look almost the same as the black lines.

Hello Toykeeper, you have mail

I reduced the Andúril chart, gives a bit room to add stuff.

One version is a 90% reordered (not pretty) version.

I'm still surprised it could even hold it that long considering it's size even with the cooler weather.  I was expecting you to say something like 20 - 30 seconds.

Maybe it was more like 2 or 3 minutes. It wasn’t long though. I only had a tee shirt and jeans on

It’s easy to miss the step down without a meter. It probably did begin to ramp down before that

Anything over 30 seconds is a winner to me in that size category.  Not sure if it will make a huge difference but I did order mine with a 40T instead of the 30T.

I ordered both 5000k and 6500k.  Will be interesting which one I like more.

Here is a nice comparison of the D4S between SST-20 6.500K and XP-L 6.500K.

https://www.taschenlampen-forum.de/threads/emisar-d4s-sst-20-6500k-beamshotvergleich.67526/#post-958201

While the SST-20 tends to have a green tint shift at lower currents the XP-L HI has no tint shift on all current levels.

That green is enough to keep me away from the SST-20, not very appealing at all.

joechina, the actions part of the manual is critical, needs to be front and forward so it’s the first thing you refer to before digging into the UI… without knowing the actions the UI is confusing, understand how to get there and everything is easy. Wink

I know Dale. It’s the not pretty version.
Others have the line description on the bottom or lower right. I think with so much different lines I guess a user searches for the explanation.

I made three versions, this is the 90% where I pushed things around and with the most free space.
The other two are a 90% and a 95% version where I moved nothing.

We both don’t know how much space the misses needs. Wink
I lost track at the moment of the changes in Andúril, but the not pushed ones should be good for 7th click and a bit of text.

(It reminds me a bit at Narsil: Boy the cheat sheet is so packed, no way to add more stuff. And the next week Tom E had new features. Ok, I must push stuff around)

Also the lines for Hold, 3 fast clicks and other actions need probably a bigger spacing.
On A4 paper size its ok, but manufacturers print normally in a much smaller size.
I haven’t made print out in A5

A option for the “3 fast clicks”-line could be

Thanks for the pictures! If you order the blue aux leds, do the button leds always remain purple?

Ah, but joe, I HAVE been speaking with her… the chart needs space in certain area’s for the addition of new functions… not necessarily a new block but more info in some of the old blocks. And only some lights that use Anduril would require this information, so it’s a toss up as to whether or not to add it in. Mostly it’s the aux led’s of a couple of manufacturer’s lights, not really applying to the normal version we flash.

Gonna have to be a couple of versions of the manual I think, one expanded for the auxiliary lights and the other not.

TK has her own methodology, someone else writing the manual the language seems off… probably best to let her do it so the speak reads true to form for the Author.

Just got mine, nichia, blue/purp, gray. (Fyi: My order was placed on nov 28)

This is a really pretty light. Next to my zebra light 60whatever 3 plus thingy my current, er, which is to say former edc, it looks like jewelry. MAN-jewelry.

I was a bit leary this past month about whether or not it would pocket edc well…but it is really smaller than expected, i think it will be fine in my pocket.

Pretty psyched.

I will post a pic in a bit with some former edc’s for size comparison for those interested.

What a pretty light. It’s just so handsome. Seriously. Nicest looking torch in my collection, easily. I dont collect—i use—so most of my lights are pretty utilitarian. So, those with fancy copper, heat treated titanium art projects may be less impressed. But i’m impressed, and i am not easily impressed. I am also—relieved, that it seems alot smaller than i thought it would be.

Pix in a bit.

Yes!
Realized after ordering blue aux.
I hope the mismatch isn’t too annoying…
