Beam angle?
Can the black mask on top be removed or does it help keep optics in place?
Will it be possible for advanced user to replace LEDs? No glue, etc?

That’s fantastic! This is a definite buy.


I agree, I’m in! Hoping for blue, that went fast in the D4!

Thanks for the m43 comparison shot.

+1 to source LED options on or below BBL, especially for high cri.

Regarding length, seems similar to m43. Doesn’t the boost driver in the m43 occupy alot of space?

Hank I understand there is no AUX LED at first, and some people do not want, but is there any plan to add it because personally I love the D4S AUX LEDs.

Either way I want one soon :). Very nice work

Oh and it’s a screw down bezel without glue correct?

Can you please show us the complete teardown of the light? We want to see the components and fit and finish..

 

is the electronics made in China? Ramping UI?

The switch on the NOCTIGON looks better and the lanyard hole should be in the tailcap not on battery tube

Beautiful light, I love the design. Maximum lumens and efficiency with minimum size and price. I dislike charging ports and am glad you left that out. And nicely done with those individual optics, a great solution. Thanks, Hank!

I would make an intelligent aux board for it, but for that I need a sample

As for me, this is the optimal configuration: 3×18650 18xXP-L HI 3A Without AUX led Black 100 $ hmmm

Agreed!

I love XPL Hi 3A in my D4S.

I'm sorry, but I can't NOT see it in this light. It just reminds me of all the trypophobia pictures.

P.S. Googling that may be upsetting to some. Pomegranates trigger it in some people...

 

Also, someone defend this against MT03 TA Devourer. I was planning to get one of those...

I agree with Komeko: XP-L HI variant would be awesome. Though expensive.
Other interesting options:

  • Osram CSLPM1.TG – very very bright and still somewhat throwy. Expensive
  • Osram CULPM1.TG – may be even better than CSLPM1.TG but requires a different MCPCB.
  • Samsung LH351D – very very floody, very very bright. Great lm/$.

look at 6 LEDs per battery the currents are not that high, so even SST-20s give good lm/W
lets say 20A per battery so 3.33A per LED

Very neat. Can’t wait to see what else you’ll come out with.

@ScallyWag, this uses high CRI LEDs.

That should be enough for you to take this light over the MT03 TA unless you want absolute highest brightness.

This looks fantastic, can’t wait for release, need one in my life ASAP Smile Long time lurker here.

Hank, do you know if Richard @ MTN will be distributing?, usually do most of my purchasing through him, as he initially (and continues) to feed my light obsession and knowledge of products. Amazing responsiveness and prefer to run through MTN, but certainly not dependent. Just curious if he’ll be distributing in the same time frame as purchasing direct from you?

And as others have asked, if not initially available, will XP-L HI be an option at some point? cost be damned. Smile

Thank you for feeding my obsession!

I’d 100% get an optional 21700 body tube for the current D4S, but who knows what’s coming next.

Like 70 lm/W with CRI95 and about 90 lm/W with CRI70 (at the emitter)?
3.33A is past the efficient range of SST-20 already. LH351D would be very very roughly 25% more efficient.
That said: personally I wouldn’t choose LH351D because it would be way too floody for me.
