8 days ago still, a design change of the body was tested by Hank. How can anyone expect that in 8 days the final design was approved, production has taken place and the many lights ready for sale on the website?

If the lights are indeed available this week, as a member of the Q8 team I envy Hank to have this super-manufacturer. Shocked

Of course that makes sense, and we certainly don’t want disastrous rushed products on the market. But the reason for hoping/expecting is simply Hank’s own words:

If it needs to be delayed, then so be it. I definitely prefer “make things right first time” approach. But as a flashaholic it is also my duty to ask and nag a little bit too. Big Smile

Edit:

Yeah I was a bit surprised to read about the new bezel and double o-ring waterproofing test, as I expected the project to have well passed that stage for an end of the month release…

Hank, will you be selling host only option? Or option with everything except driver?

Ahh, ok thanks. Haven’t been following this thread at all. If the LED choice is optional I guess I can live with replacing the driver.

If I understand correctly, it’s mod-friendly and the driver can probably be reflashed instead of having to be replaced. Of course, we won’t know for sure until someone opens one up to see what’s inside, but I think it’s supposed to be very similar to what the Q8 uses (only smaller).

This could make the D4 somewhat of a holy grail of flashlights — a light with the general size, style, and quality of a ZL SC63 or Olight S2, but dramatically brighter, cheaper, and mod-friendly. If Hank plays this right, I think the two upcoming lights could be extremely popular.

Black with green bezel please! Wink

They look wonderful, the specs are wonderful, the led-choice is wonderful, and if Toykeeper guesses right, the UI will be wonderful too!

Imagine a bunch of 16 year old girls front row to Justin Bieber concert freaking out…
Nothing compared to me when I see these lights for sale at Intl-outdoor.com, and ordering them. Party

There must be something wrong with this light though, it can not all be right, right? Wink

Just noticed in the picture that the two flashlights have the battery tube reversed. I guess the threading on both sides of the tube is the same and this is the way to reverse the clip? (you can’t hide nothing from me Flat Stare )

There will be no knurling on the tube?
What about tailcap magnet?

That would have been nice, but a magnet that can hold a 18650 light horizontally is at least 5mm thick, I can understand a decision to go for minimal size in a light like this.
