I don’t want to bug Neal with a simple question, I think he is already getting flooded with questions.

So I will ask here, those who ordered and paid on Neals store do they get “Fulfillment Status: unfulfilled” message?

Thanks in advance.

I didn’t order this one because i didn’t get the PM yet, but i did order there before and when he sends it it the status will appear as “Fulfilled”

I’m also curious about how difficult it will be to change out the emitter.

As far as mods go, this one is pretty easy. It uses a standard triple MCPCB. So basically just unscrew the bezel, unsolder two wires, swap the board, connect two wires, and screw the bezel back on.

Well this maybe my first mod, I just have to find a suitable MCPCB, any suggestions? How about what NOT to use

As far as 7A candle mode, I’m having the same thoughts as TK and teacher. It would be really cool. But do I need a $36 candle? This is, of course, not the forum for that question. Everyone will say yes.

The PM with the code shows up when it shows up then the light ships when it ships.




in the running for ‘quote of the year’.

Sorry if I missed this but was the most optimal battery ever discussed?

High capacity, medium drain batteries like Sanyo 18650GA, Samsung 35E, or LG MJ1 should work well.

Samsung 30Q or Sony VTC6 wil trade a little bit of capacity for slightly higher peak output.

Wait.. If I used this light as  a candle, then that's more use than 100+ of my lights currently get now. I think I need to order another in 7A smile

This is a nice option: http://www.mtnelectronics.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=60_134&product_id=965

I got this triple 2700K XPL HI in a nice EDC (SWM C20C), and really like it: http://www.mtnelectronics.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=60_132&product_id=935. Its quite unique because I usually don't go this warm.

My wife had been known to buy $20 candles that are dimmer and not even rechargeable. $36 dollars for a candle with all the features of the FW3A is a steal.

Any chance of one around 6000k ever being produced at all?

If only for Toykeeper and I, sometimes it seems like we’re the only ones who actually prefer cooler over warmer…

If Lumintop and Neal can be convinced to offer more flavors, it would be nice to have a cool white version. I suggested 7A, 5A, 3D, and 2A (~3200K, ~4100K, ~4900K, ~5900K). However, they are hesitant to make too many flavors.

I don’t want a cool white one for myself though. I generally prefer ~4100K to ~4900K. But I’m pretty sure JasonWW would like to have a cool white version.

Ahhh, sorry. Must of got mixed up, I remember a previous thread way back where someone said they like the cooler tints. Remember thinking at the time – wow, thought I was all alone! : )

Maybe it was JasonWW, sorry!

I’m good with 5000K as long as it’s rosy and not greenish. There are certain Nichia 219 and 319 in 5000K which I find pretty nice. I’m hoping the 3D xpl-hi here is going to be nice as well.

Most 5700K are nice looking to me. Unfortunately, most lights don’t have that option. Sofirn usually does.

I’ve tried 4000K high CRI, but it’s too yellow for me.

Just for the record. Big Smile

XP-L HI triples with Carclo 105xx series optics have been a thing for a while. This is the 10511, which is a frosted optic that’s smoother and a little more floody than the most popular 10507, but you can trivially swap in a 10507 or any of the others if you want. Arrow sells 10507s with free overnight shipping (yes, really, even if you only buy one $1.76 optic – no, there’s not a catch).

I don’t have a link to beamshots, but I’m sure you can find some on BLF. The beam of this light will look exactly like any other light using the same emitters and optic.

So, I don’t really have a use for this as a “normal” flashlight, but I ordered one in a 7A tint for the specific purpose of using it as a night light. I’m not sure I’m into “candle mode”, but I’ll see what it’s like. “Sunset mode” seems more useful for my purpose, IMO.

Anyway, does anyone have a link to a diffuser that will fit this light, so it can sit on a table and look like a mini-lantern?
