In that case my guess is that it does not have a (BeCu) spring for the cell… Although I don’t find the design elegant, DQG’s design used in the Tiny 26650 is clever.

It does use our BeCu spring both in the tailcap and driver pcb to minimize
the resistance as small as possible.

I did not expect such a positive answer, that is great news! Smile

That D4 seems one of those perfect flashlights, I hope for a user interface just as perfect as the form and specs!

Interesting. I do prefer springs over some solid contact so that’s good to know.

some small leak:
D1S, 128mm length, 50mm head, side switch, 120kcd.
D4, 92mm length, side switch, 10622 quad optic

D1, D17 will be coming later.

The D1 has one emitter. The D4 has four emitters. So… does the D17 have seventeen emitters? The planned 8×18650 powered Noctigon was I believe supposed to have 9 XHP35 HI emitters for 16000 lumens. Perhaps this changed to seventeen XP-L HI emitters? Or maybe seventeen XP-G2/Nichia emitters for around 10000 lumens, but with a lot more throw than the M43?

With 92mm length, Carclo quad 10622 beam pattern, I pocket it every day.

Awesome !!!

Is there any info on when it will be ready approximately ?

Does this mean quad noctigon for 10622 optic is coming soon ?

It is a typo actually, it will be called D7 because it will have 7 LEDs,

D4 should be released before the end of this month. And yes, the Noctigon quad board should be for sale by next week.

Clemence has already found the R9080’s difficult to obtain, while he has a very direct contact at Nichia. It would be quite an achievement if Hank was able to get Nichia to release to him the few that they make. Smile

I’d say almost the same as an S2+ and other tube-style 18650 lights, so 24/25mm-ish

Is it the end of June yet? Cool

So… the D7 (instead of D17) has seven emitters. Maybe like DQG with single 26650 (Well it could be seven XH-P70 emitters buuuut I doubt that)? So I do assume Nichia option is then available for the D7.

Yes, length is smaller. But with 10622 head has to be larger. Tail looks larger too. Could you please share the diameter numbers?

I did some pixel counting. It’s not accurate, but I guess the tail cap is 26.5 mm, battery tube: 24 mm, head: 28 mm + protrusion. Head would be 24 mm long, tail – 23 mm.
This adds up to ~48 cm^3.
For comparison, DQG Tiny 4th 18650 is very roughly 38 cm^3, 21% smaller.

If shortened to 18350 size, this would be very roughly 34 cm^3 vs. 26 cm^3, 25% smaller.

28mm(head )* 24mm(tube) * 25.6mm(tailcap)

Whatever happened with the rumors of the new Meteor I believe it was or something similar, read about a new light on the Meteor thread some time back ? Last year I believe.
Great new light Hank, and still wishing you’d start remaking some of your lights from the early days again,
