Any word on CRI for the warm option? I love the warm xhp in my pro with its ~85CRI.

They say one of the benefits of working with Armytek is high profit margins, “over 100%” on the last page of that manual. We should do a “group buy” and just bulk order a bunch at cost

A volunteer! How nice Thumbs Up Beer

Whole last year we had 40% discounts more or less as a standard. Try negotiating something like 50%, or 40% minimum.

Thanks, we believe in you!

Edit: Wiz C2 is suspicious. Will the next Tiara become a Wiz C1? I bet.

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

I bought 2 armytek headlamps.. both died within a year.

I’ve had better luck with $8 Chinese headlamps.

What’s the difference between the new C2 Pro amd previous version besides the charging? Most important of all, how’s the tint and CRI?

The differences I have noticed so far:
- additional mode – turbo 3 (2500lm / 2330lm OTF)
- thermal protection set to 50*C (65*C in v3)
- a spring on the head side
- thicker spring at the bottom 1.25mm vs 1mm
- fewer inscriptions and manufacturer markings

The tint reminds me Wizard WR warm – it’s rosy-peach. Duv is even lower than in my favourite XP-Ls Hi V2 5D.

Thanks for this useful information. Looking at your photos it looks as if new new design has a slightly longer tailcap (accounts for the increased length), different heat sinking, new button and a new font for graphics!

But the interesting thing is the bezel redesign – could you confirm that the inside diameter is larger, or is it the same?

Thanks.

The tube is 3mm longer, the tailcap is practically the same. v4’s bezel has 1mm bigger inner diameter.

DUV lower than V2 5D! Wow I wonder where they source all those rosy Cree emitters. I would love to buy just the emitters. Where did you buy yours from?

Thanks for confirming – I thought it looked larger. And as others have commented, news of the tint is interesting. My V3 Pro has IMHO a good tint, and I am now tempted by V4.

I like the sound of all these changes so far. In your other pictures it looks like it has a slightly larger button also.? Don’t know if I need “fire starter” mode but it can’t hurt much. I’ll only be tempted if it is at least as warm as the current “warm” and it sounds like the cri will be higher.

It looks like they slightly modified a Lumonite Compass R head. It already had a bigger bezel and button and spring in head. Armytek clearly makes the Lumonite L shaped lineup “from” Finland.

Armytek should have increased the tube diameter IMO, to allow a 21700 cell to fit.
