Interested!

If it had AA and 14500 compatibility that’d be great. Though I understand it would be difficult to get AA compatibility for anduril.

Also 4,000K color temp would be awesome, given a high CRI.

And grey anodized special color would be cool too.

Maybe an OP reflector instead of smooth too?

Interested! I’m hopeful for high CRI 3500k-4500k with Anduril.
14500 is fine with me.

I don’t want to actually buy or use 14500s.

If they had the same gravimetric energy density as 18650s, I’d go.

Otherwise, no.

Interested if it’s powerful Smile
The proposed UI seems amazing.

Interested in 4000K Hi CRI with Andúril

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)

I will buy a few. But make it 4000k.

5000k lh351d is terribly green on low modes. Please don’t use that.

Hearing the doubts on AA Anduril makes me nervous, but if it can be done, then I’m in for 4. Because Anduril is awesome.

If it’s 14500 only.. then I’m probably out. Maybe in for one.. but probably not.

I am also I for one, even if it only works with 14500 batteries. And why does everybody wants no or a clear anodization? That blue and red looks amazing and would differentiate it from all these black and grey flashlights.
And please keep a 5000K version, 4000K is just to warm for my taste.

How does that side switch not activate in one’s pocket? 

Mine does. I use the lockout function, but who knows how often that thing is blinking in there.

It sounds like the main hurdle for this project is a matter of electrical engineering, finding a way for BLF code to run on an AA boost driver. Anyone got info about how to do that? Or even detailed info about the driver used on the current model?

Very interested! I bought a few of the SP10A (or B?) and they’re nice. I’d buy a few if they can get anduril to run on the aa/14500 driver. FET, I’d be interested in 1 or 2.

I'm interested.  I'd buy a couple if:

14500/AA 

Some color(s) other than black, to include no anodization at all (please).

Otherwise I'd buy only one as a BLF one-off just to have a sample.

Maybe lexel can assist on this project?

With a 14500 cell it would be easy… just run it like a normal BLF light. The tricky part is running it from a regular AA cell. It would need a MCU which runs at much lower voltage, or some way to boost the voltage even in standby mode. Or maybe some clever way to wire the switch to the boost circuit so it would enable the boost hardware when the button is pressed.

I’m not sure how the current driver works though; I haven’t seen any details on it. So figuring that out might be the first step.

Interested!

AA is not a big deal to me on this one. Prefer 4000K, but 5000K is fine.
