Sofirn should make the threads on the tube the same so you can flip the tube and clip it to the brim on your hat.

Or just widen the groove near the head so you can flip the clip around.

Please illuminate responsibly

That, plus charging from the tail means either having the driver also in the tail, and/or a dual-tube design.

What if we did a rechargeable version with a different host? Think it could be accomplished on, say, the Lumintop EDC05C?

That host already has recharging and dedicated 14500 cell.

It would be fun with anduril and the side LEDs. If you threw in the sst-20 3k side emitters and a 5k main emitter, I would be in heaven.

other wish list items for that: better colors (grey with stainless accents), USB Type-C charging.

That would literally be my perfect EDC light.

An AA-size flashlight with Anduril would be great. I would definitely prefer high efficiency over high lumen output.

And that’s what ‘medium’ output is for: reasonable output for a long duration.

‘High’ is for bright but wincingly inefficient operation, when you need a lot of light for a while, but you’re quick about it because you know the battery won’t last terribly long.

‘Turbo’ is for those 10 or 20 seconds where you need a photon cannon, battery drain be damned.

It’s better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it, even if it comes set conservatively by default and you need to fiddle with Anduril’s settings to unlock it.

I think I’d use thermal regulation for turbo with 14500 operation (because the cell can handle the current output, probably), and timer based regulation for NiMHs (because the cell can’t handle the current for long at all).

Tbh from my sofirn lights, the Sp10 is my least favorite. The output is extremely low. Specially compared to the tool AA and Wuben E05

Some members reported low output on the earlier versions.

The Sofirn SP10A V2.0 measured at 30 sec 290 lumens using an AA and 580 using a 14500.

That’s pretty decent

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.

Just get the Sofirn 14500 that’s bundled with it for $3. It’s good for over 3amps

Yeh, even my original 1st-gen green-beam ‘A (just l/m/h+s) is quite nice. My ‘B (f/l/m+h) is about the same, ‘though I never side-by-sided them.

No complaints at all.

I just got one of the SP10S (non Anduril version) and so far I like it but I am used to LH351D’s in both 4000k and 5000k. The only thing I don’t care for is “Eco” is significantly brighter in this version than the SP10B
