One advantage might be cost.

Having a smaller die, it usually costs less than the XP-G3.

Yes, I have mentioned this as a selling point. The SST-20 is a bit cheaper but apparently in bulk it is not enough to be an instant win, just a point in it’s favor.

They are also a little annoyed at me when it comes to selecting LED’s, I always push for the best bins and they are always next to impossible to get. So I am having to relax my standards a little in order to at least have some say in the final LED’s used and not just bargain bin LED’s they can find someplace.

Interested in Hi CRI only.

My rules for flashlights:
1) Always have an option for Neutral, Warm, HiCRI
2) Just say "NO!" to proprietary cells and battery packs
3) Have a KISS interface: no scrolling through blinky modes

(I'm also PhantomPhoton on CPF; reddit.com/r/flashlights; LPF)

They have not settled on a driver yet but yes, it looks like it will be a TA FET setup.

I REALLY want to use Anduril firmware on this light but it has a bug in the thermal control that allows it to slowly get up to 100c+ which is just not safe. I have tried evreything I know and everything TK suggested to fix it but it seems it is a bug in the code itself that TK has known about for some time. She was able to bandaid the issue for the D4S but for a large light like this it seems the bandaid does not work.

TK is aware of the bug but has not had time to fix it (the light was supposed to go on sale a few months ago but they kept wanting to wait for anduril to be fixed so they put it off). So I think we will have to revert to Narsil instead since we know it works properly.

I do want to include pogo pin holes for easy flashing later though.

Since it’s 95CRI, it’s 4000k.

As blue sword said the best there is with the 95cri option is 4000k. Although I am DEEP down the rabbit hole on the hunt for a better bin then we have seen before.

I am also trying to talk them into offering a 70cri version of the SST-20 in place of the XP-G3. I think it should give about the same lumens but without the tint shift issues.

Also have another idea I have been pushing far as LED’s go but too early to let that one out of the bag since it is not confirmed yet.

We should have a poll about which color people like best, although some of the colors have changed slightly from that picture (the tan in particular they changed a little, that is why it looks different in some pictures).

People, please do post what colors you like best, they can’t offer all the colors for normal production but there is some debate on which ones they will offer.

I am still waiting on how many people would need to order for us to get custom colors as well. They confirmed it can be done with enough interest, just not word on how much interest that is. 50? 100? 500? If I had to guess it would be around 100 per color to make it work their time to make a custom color.

I know I just want to end up with all those prototype samples once this is said and done lol.

I like the purple or blue but if the colors aren’t set yet you probably should wait to get us to choose. Otherwise you’ll get a million different ideas and we won’t be choosing options that will be available.

Well, I was talking about a poll of the favorites, not which ones you are ordering.

This would be to help pick the colors that do make it to production. There are different opinions among those working on this.

Black, purple, blue and tan are front runners thus far but some are not far behind. Also blue and purple are so close I am not sure both will make sense to put into production.
