The hole makes it more difficult to knock the light off your Levi pocket. It adds resistance. Personally, this light will be fantastic without regards to bunnies and black clips with holes. After all, we will be using it in the DARK! Should be fun.

I must be missing something. Because, the hole is even in the clip on the original renders.

Yep… but somewhere along the way the the hole disappeared. The link to this pic says “Proto 4” in it. IIRC it was the last one sent out b4 the pre-production ones just sent out.

And then on the picture posted today by M4D M4X the hole has “magically” reappeared. ('If' this is indeed a picture of the ones just sent out.)

Not only that, but the clip in the original renders, and especially the next revision, look great. The latest version looks, well, garbage.

Vivaldi browser has a built in Hibernate Background Tabs-function.
OneTab Chrome extension is good for saving tabs and memory.

Firefox uses hundreds of megabytes per tab? That’s a news to me. I have 213 open tabs at the moment, all in plain sight (3 rows). There are quite a few heavy web apps among them. I just explicitly reloaded them all and FF takes 5.5 GB now – or 25 MB per tab.

100% agree, in fact the black clip is probably enough for me to not buy this light now, far out Lumintop, just stick to what we signed up for ffs

Yes its weird they make such changes since the community havent asked for it really, but again they make the light so they feel the can do whatever they want really. Not much to do really, just accept it for what it is really.

We don’t know what order the images are in though – I’m going to wait for the next confirmed images (from the three reviewers who have been sent lights) before casting aspersions.

true but i dont expect any more changes now, since the hole on the clip is also visible on the boxes its safe to say it more or less is the final design but time will tell..

I agree, but I guess what I’m getting at is that we don’t know when the photos Max got were taken; for all we know they could either be taken 5 minutes before he posted them, or a month before – I know he was sent them by Neal.

I’m going to assume that the lights being sent to the three are the “final” edition, so I’ll jjst put this to the back of my mind until then, and work on finding a good use for my sw45k’s when they arrive.

Most browsers should remember all the tabs you had open and reopen after a crash.

Black clip with the hole looks much worse .

Why would Lumintop change something that looked great and was a non issue . There was virtually no negative feedback on the question of the clip ..again changing something last minute is about as stupid as you can get .

Normally I avoid these threads because they make me crazy .

No reason for this at all ...

I’m still not convinced it is as ‘black’ as it ‘appears’ in this picture. And I don’t think it is painted either. That is my story & I’m sticking to it…. Innocent

I didn’t think the clip was removable….

This was the last (?) info we got about that. So…the 3 testers will probably be able to tell us more about that.
I will not enter the colour/anodization/whatever discussion as I will decide what to do with that later!

ToyKeeper wrote:
No, the clip is not reversible. Not really, anyway. But it might be removable if the tail isn’t glued.

This is as close as it gets to being reversible:

It does not fit at the head end, and even if it did, inserting the clip between the head parts would interfere with the light’s operation.

Ah yes, that’s right. I think my brain latched onto the “if the tail isn’t glued” and not the image part of it.
