why not ask for wight’s 17DD+7135 driver that is being developed for the EE A6 group buy? (ask wight+Toykeeper as well of course).

I can’t speak for wight about the driver, but the code is published with an explicit GPLv3 license so anyone can use it as long as they share their changes too. No need to ask.

Just a thought... Is XP-L a possibility? Might make things simpler with regard to the mcpcb.

I’m in for a complete light if it’s only 3-5$ more than host, due to the packaging problems we had before, seems safer.

Please follow KeepItStupidSimple no matter what. As long as it is on DTP pcb (copper would be nice) all emmiters are fine with me. XP-G2 is preferable I guess.
Driver-wise, don’t really care would propably change it anyways. I guess 105c/105d Nanjg with 2,8A or 3A and 4 group with star bridging or 2 group default would be the simplest way: no testing needed(safes a ton of time), reprogramable by buyers, cheap and reasoneble performance. Would pair well with XP-G2 I guess. Not an hot rod but neither a “Laufzeitwurst” (runtime-sausage literally Big Smile )
Changing the pill and so on is really only going to complicate things, IMO T20 pill is the only real option that is possible other than keeping the stock one. But even then there is a good chance that the factory screws it up, so I’d just keep it stock really.

wow, less than a day and already have requests for 41 hosts and 32 complete lights. I didn’t include some of you that were vague and didn’t make a definite request or said only if this and that or maybe something else happens.

Thank you all for your support in making this happen

Ok, nice to see this going ahead Smile

@n10sivern, I know you requested an AR coated lens, that one is hopefully of good quality that actually raises the kcd, someone with the 1405 could check before you decide on AR or not on a possible sample, because if it is crap quality AR, the only extra we get is extra bad green & blue cast on the tint & then i MUCH rather have the normal no AR glass lens.

What do you think of requesting an omten switch? i saw in the 1405 thread that someone who bought it directly from Uniquefire’s Aliexpress store got an updated bigger switch that looked almost exactly like an known omten, but there was no omten markings so i guess it is a clone, but we know there is room for it in the updated tail assembly.

Copper beryllium springs would be nice bonus or at least some carobronze springs, or maybe even braided or wire bypassed springs, it can’t hurt to ask & someday the budget light maker in China will get how much it improves performance.

An XP copper DTP mcpcb is probably best to request besides an XP-L or XP-G2 led because then they can buy in just one mcpcb design so it should be cheaper.

The EE A6 GB driver+ TK’s firmware is a very good idea Smile
Remember if you want to use this driver, you have to get the copper DTP mcpcb or the led’s will fry instantly.

As many of these nice upgrades we can get the better product they will have & the less modding we need to do to get max out of it.

Sign me up for a complete light with an XP-L V6 1A, and thanks for doing this.

3 complete lights, 1 xml, 1 xpl, 1 xpg. No brass pill please. Copper and brass are very different. Thanks for your effort.

I want to add that if we could get a proper copper pill, i would be happy to quite a bit more extra. An after market copper pill + shipping could easily cost as much as the whole light Sad

@southland, the reason we would want copper or even brass is because then we can reflow the copper mcpcb on to the pill, an option thats not possible on the aluminum stock pill.

Interesting to see an Official group buy thread without any info.

In the past people would first negotiate price, product details, shipping options, and the time has already been long past since they first shipped out samples before starting an "official group buy".

Anyway, I think I want 1 complete light!?!?!?  But can't commit with so few details.

This light isn’t produced yet, to produce it Uniquefire wants some orders before they will even make it, if i am understanding things right.

So we are having a group buy on something that isn't in production yet?

Why not first come to a consensus and then start a group buy?

Think the word Group Buy shouldn't be used as of yet.

This is a shorter version for a single battery of the Uniquefire 1405, and we hope Uniquefire are interested in improving an already great light. Just like the EE A6 GB, take something already good & hopefully get them to improve it even more.

If you want the light now you can always buy the longer 1405 & cutting it down to size Smile djozz have already practically made the 1504 by modding the stock 1405.

i havent been here in a while?

one of the first things i FOLLOWED upon checking back in? was the 1405, 1504, someone made a shorty, etc developments!

i definitely want ONE no doubt about it. (i’m in USA), and thats for sure and for certain. One working light, that is… and my “vote” will be for xml2. 2.8/3/5 something in that range for amperage vote.

depending on the prices you get set up finally? i could see myself wanting a few hosts or complete lights when it gets finalized… but i will definitely commit up front to one complete light.

i make my own night vision equipment? which kind of forced me to get “into” LED lights and zoomies. Good god, as you go around the WEB looking for what is essentially just a IR zoomie? good lord, the guys “making” them sometimes act (charge, lol) like you are ordering parts for the manhattan project…LMAO

so yeah, i commit definitely to ONE complete visible light… and more than likely a few more hosts or even complete lights.

With enough black coffee and cigarettes? all things are possible…

I am currently still shipping… REAL GENUINE CREE xp-g emitters, the classic… brace yourself? as low as 20 cents apiece!! Check out the SALES THREAD, everyone is happy… then PM me

SALES THREAD:
http://budgetlightforum.com/node/52528

if you are into reloading? this is my site… I inherited the remains of what was once arguably the best reloading site on the internet… its the “BLF” of reloading sites…

http://reloadbench.freeforums.net/

if you think night vision would be cool? It IS… this site i am a member of, and its basically the “BLF” of home made scratch-built digital night vision. They are at the leading forefront of advanced DIY for digital night vision, and thats gun mounted or handheld… builds rival and exceed commercial offerings…
