I believe the ship has sailed, but the way this sale has been structured (not saying I know of a better way), it very likely doesn’t matter.

@RobertB, the thought occurred to me too, I must admit, but I guess he’s just lucky.

Haha, really no big deal. Everyone who wants one will get one eventually, but I noticed I was 2073 people ahead of him on the list and waiting for 2 years.. found it funny is all, coming from reddit and joining blf and ordering the lights at the last minute

True enough, and you’re right, everyone will get one, but as #91, I feel you.

HaHa, this must be some kind of shipping lucky draw. Ordered the same 3D version right after code received and the status of mine still shows unfulfilled, yet this person way behind me(803 exactly) not only get one but two 3D already.

This kind of thinking is infectious. Especially when I realized some of the fancy, smelly candles my wife has bought cost 2/3 as much as this light and are not rechargeable, nor as someone else pointed out, waterproof.

Clemence is planning an E21A triple board. I wonder if the E21A’s could handle the 219 build of Anduril (FET channel limited to 50%). That would provide a lot of color temperature choices. 2700K or 3000K could both be great. If you really wanted candle like light, you could go all the way down to 2000K.


But a FW3A candle doesn’t have the benefit of emitting fragrant carcinogens.

Don’t be so certain. Evil

I certainly do like the smell of HF electrolyte in the air.

Seriously, I actually opened one in a fume hood, and smelling it, it was the smell of HF in the electrolyte.

Not really all that safe to burn…

Yeah, but following a thread for two years is a reward in and of itself. Maybe.

Nope. The silver thing didn’t go well. After several anodizing attempts failed, the idea was cancelled.

However…

If you really want the bare aluminum silver color, it probably isn’t hard to get. You can soak the light in Greased Lightning for several hours to remove the anodizing.

Before attempting this I suggest checking all o-rings and removing the battery though. You do not want the Greased Lightning to get inside.

Well this maybe my first mod, I just have to find a suitable MCPCB, any suggestions?
Since you're in the US, I'd suggest a Mtn triple from MtnElectronics.com. They come with a variety of different emitters already soldered on; just pick your favorite type.
Since I don't have the breadth of personal experience I figure I'd ask:I noticed Mtn. Electronics has a Nichia 219c 90+ cri 4000k board, that looks like it might fit,  

 

How does the 219c compare to the sst-20 of the tint that's going to be included?

  
both seem to be well spoken of and I'm tempted to give in to my impatience and to try making the swap...

(I'm waiting for the sst-20 version  ATM)

I ordered a 7a light also, but did not get a message, strange.

It will. The 219C has been popular for other triple builds. It has similar output to the SST-20 and less throw than either the XP-L HI or SST-20, but more throw than the LH351D. 219Cs can sometimes be a little green, but I would describe the 4000K 219Cs I’ve bought from mtn in the past as looking nicer than 4000K SST-20s, especially at low output.

your PM feature is disabled, like mine was! Enable it and get in touch with the team, please.

Thanks.

Go to MY ACCOUNT on the left, then EDIT, then under PRIVATE MESSAGES you should ENABLE them.
Don’t forget to hit SAVE afterwards.

Then you should contact the team from this thread with a PM.

You can also use clear narrow optics with 219C’s (and LH351D) and get a pretty good beam where as the SST-20 looks like some starburst and the XP-L HI only slightly less bad.

Normally when you create an account at BLF the PM system is on by default. I assumed you turned it off in your settings. If you didn’t turn it off then maybe it got turned off automatically somehow. It’s strange.

I think it's an awesome coincidence that one of the three people with PMs turned off ended up helping one of the other two Flat Stare

I memorized the names TK gave us and I was blown away that out of thousands of PMs, only 3 people had the feature switched off. That must be one of the only forums where this many users have a PM feature (as stated before, it is switched on by default) and also actively use it.

Since I am new here I actually switched the feature off and didn’t know why I would need it, completely forgot about the code from this thread.

Now we have to contact our friend “USA” and make sure he/she gets the code somehow. This light has to be in every hand globally.
