[Interest Check + Preview] Wurkkos TS30S + TS30R

Hello everyone,

Mark Lee (Wurkkos) did not spare any efforts to develop some new flashlights, some aimed for the mass market but some especially for us enthusiasts, flashomaniacs, tifosi. Apart from launching their new headlamp HD20, some new penlights (will be announced soon, too) and their basic DL30 diving light, Wurkkos now wants to join the club of Luminus SBT90.2 lights. In order to help Mark focus on business, development and production I want to use the chance to present you his latest product. Along with an interest check there are good chances for another nice discount with really competitive prices compared to other brands like Lumintop, Nightwatch, Amutorch and many more.

 

Behold, Wurkkos TS30S with standard and strike bezel

 

 

Specifications:

Emitter Luminus SBT90.2 or SBT90-R
Tint

SBT90.2: 5.700K 70CRI

SBT90-R: Red (621nm dominant wavelength)

Dimensions 55mm (head diameter) x 145mm (length) x 28.8mm (tailcap)
Target Output

SBT90.2: 5.500lm

SBT90-R: 1.800 - 2.000lm

Power

1x 21700

USB-C charging port

Switch Type e-switch sideswitch
Reflector SMO reflector
UI Andúril (latest revision possible)
Bezel Crenelated standard and strike bezel (both supplied with the light)

 

Pricing:

Model Expected MSRP
BLF Price
TS30S $ 109.99 $ xx.99
TS30R $ 159.99 $ 1xx.99

 

Please express your interest in TS30S and/or TS30R below.

Note: While TS30S is already set for actual production TS30R is yet to be confirmed, depending on your interest, stated below. Chances are good that Wurkkos will be able to get the second-best (BQ) flux bin for SBT90.R. I will remain in close contact with them to work on achieving the best results possible, e.g. using the latest revision of Andúril with improved thermal management or using double-springs for optimized current flow.

TS30R (SBT90-R)

...to wind up....some early actual pictures of the host and bezel...

Definitely interested! Any idea of throw numbers yet? That bezel! I’m not sure that would be legal carry in this country! Haha

I'm afraid we need to wait for Sofirn/Wurkkos to finish their first prototype of TS30S before we get any throw numbers.

Concerning the bezel...well...that's what I was thinking, too. Somehow I really, really like this spiky bezel but you are right about those concerns. In wrong hands this tool could be misused as a stabbing weapon. This will certainly leave a lot of room for discussion.

Why would you need a strike bezel on a throw light?

As a distributor of Wurkkos in NZ, I’ll be looking forward to stocking this light. The red version for hunting would also be of interest

Do you know how much it’ll weigh? Wondering if it’s light enough to mount of a rifle

Interested in TS30S without strike bezel. Interested because this has usb-c port in flashlight host instead of in battery. What kind of driver does this use? Hope it is constant current. The Astrolux MF02 uses a 35A Constant current driver

I asked Mark about the net weight (w/o battery). He will check with the factory once a prototype sample is assembled.

Mark will check with engineering what driver is being used. I think it’s an FET DD driver. A 35A CC driver would certainly make TS30S much more expensive. Its host size is smaller than MF02S V2, leaving less room for heat dissipation and all the current would have to be delivered from one cell only whereas Astrolux‘s light has a 2S2P setup.

If driver is CC I’m in with one T03S and strike bezel.

Maybe CC with direct drive like the Noctigon K1 would be good too

I’d prefer a DD Fet driver to reduce costs. I think Wurkkos is going for value here.

So, I talked to Mark about the driver and the strike bezel. Maybe Wurkkos will sell the strike bezel as a separately available accessory. Since the stainless steel bezel is rather expensive in material and manufacturing, selling it separately may have a nice impact on the discounted price, being hopefully even more appealing. Regarding the driver we may need to wait and see what Sofirn's engineering can do and what impact this would have on their pricing calculation. Again, TS30S is meant to be in competition with similar sized lights like Astrolux FT03S, Amutorch XT45.2 or Nightwatch NI40, all using classic FET/DD drivers if I recall correctly.

However, I agree that a CC+DD driver like Noctigon's K1 would be a nice leap ahead. Depending on its thermal characteristics, I suppose 8 amps or maybe a bit less for constant current could be right to drive TS30S on high mode (~ 1.500 - 2.000lm) constantly in brightness until its battery is depleted. But even if it was possible, this would certainly have a significant impact on the price unless Sofirn and Wurkkos had a whole bunch of new flashlights in their pipeline, all using a completely new CC+DD driver developed from scratch. Personally, I don't expect this is the case.

Thank you friend ,I would like do a CC+ DD driver too, however sofirn factory seems a bit embarrassing, will continue to follow up their technical status.
strike bezel if not necessary, will sell it seperately instead of take it as a part of the accessories in box. But I personally think this strainless strike bezel is very nice and characteristic, the real thing looks much more beautiful than the photo Big Smile
