The thread title is “what would you like to see”, right? I would like to see a very dark brown anodisation colour. Like my old Shadow tc500. Or a nice thick matt black so that I can bake it to dark brown myself.

They started with the production of the tailcaps. Here a very short clip from some tailcaps fresh out of the machine.


Hope to get also some shots from the machining (before and after. . . ).
Also waiting for infos about the available colors.

Nice to see some production vid’s. I tried that for the Q8 when it first came out but as Thorfire was not the manufacturer themselves, I never got much of that.

Wow, that’s not what i imagined at all, i imagined something far smaller and calmer Shocked

You guys are really screwing with my resolution not to buy any more 18650 lights. Been following developments (and enjoying them) and know i’ll be getting one (at least).
I blame you all Big Smile

So, it looks like these will be available soon. Any idea where they will be for sale?

Edit: also, any thoughts about a group buy? Maybe ask M4D M4X?

They will sell them on their Aliexpress shop (https://www.aliexpress.com/store/4498067). At the moment there is no Group Buy. But i will try to get a good price for us.
We will have to wait a bit longer. Driver for mass production is not ordered yet (they want to wait untill Lexels had the chance to check the prototype). Also the springs for production have not arrived.
And there is no final price at the moment because they do not know how much they will have to scrap during production.
They have changed a lot of things and had to buy some new tooling to get it done. But they have no experiance with this new toolings.
When i get a price or release date i will update the first post with more infos.

Here some shots from the Tube fresh out of the machine.
And the second one shows the new trapezoid threads.
I really like the light without anodization! Looks really nice

So the color will be black (they also are testing with some other colors but for the first run they will use black).
I was asked if we prefer a mat black or a shiny black?

And i asked if it would be possible to get a few lights without anodization (i want one without it so i can polish the light much easier). If they make it possible they will not put them on Aliexpress this way. This would be a onetime thing for only a few lights. So if you are interested let me know. So they are able to set them asside.

Their 1st gen gray color was actually pretty nice. I think I like it better than the newer FW3A gray. The FireFlies E07 had a really nice dark gray too.

However, cant really go wrong with a good matte black.

Put me down for a no-anno or clear anno if they make it available. (RIP lockout, but you do what you gotta do for a unique light Smile

Will save me some work when I plate it.

Matte black looks much better for me, but sometimes I think it’s easier to scratch.

Besides, I would be interested in 2 pieces without anodization.

I prefer matte black to shiny. I would like some anodization, as opposed to raw.

I have a answere from LS. They want to talk to the factory engenier because they are not sure that a light without ano will work without problems (they are sellers not modders) Big Smile .
Even when i explained that it is no problem (you only loose the lockout funktion) and that i stripped the ano from lights before (and they work just fine).
But they want to make sure nothing goes wrong. So i expect that they say yes to selling us a few lights without ano.
When i know more i will make a official interest list so they can put the right amount asside.

Hey Docc, do you or LS have any idea about the selling price of the New D80 ? Or via what shop they can be ordered?
