I’d prefer a balanced logo with some degree of symetry to the text like d or e. I would probably buy two, one to keep as-is and one to decapitate for use with a 3 1/2” (88.9mm) head, quad xhp-50s, and extension tube. I understand how inclusion of the manufacturer’s logo might appeal on that end but a un-corporate-tied logo might make it more distinctive. Something like an eight pointed star to represent the quad cell, quad emitter design. The Q8 could actually become a distinct product line. Good thing there’s little threat of legal action over the planned Audi Q8.

Uhh…if you’re asking for opinions I like the thorfire icon much better. Plus thorfire is the one building the light (so far) so I see no problem with them getting a little nod on the branding.

Question from the uninformed…

I am curious about the name “Q8.”

To what does it refer… from where does does it originate?

Thanks

Q
Quad emitter
Quad cell
Quad the current SRK preformance and Quality (there you have 4 Qs already

8 (maybe turns into 6)
18650
1 8 650 (or the more common 18 6 50)

Then if it all goes well a smaller AA/14500 version, baby SRK would be cool to make right after it. being the
Q4 (maybe Q5)
Same Q for Quad emitter, Quad cell
14500 size cells
1 4 500
14 5 00

And while we are at it, a faint distant idea of a smaller AAA/10440 version
Q2 (maybe Q4)
Same Q for Quad emitter, Quad cell
Q2 if the first is named Q8 and the second Q4 since 2 4 8 is kind of a logical sequence.
Q4 if the first one is gonna be the Q6 the second Q5
10440 size cells
10 4 40

And while we are at it, a faint distant idea of a bigger 26650 version
Now all logic is gone
Q10 of Q16 if the first is named Q8 since 2 4 8 10 / 2 4 8 16 is kind of logical
Q7 is the first one is gonna be the Q6, the second Q5, the third Q4

Kind of hope team Kronos will develop a X4 and X7 to add to the X5/X6 list.
Then Q6 for starters would be better.
But for now working title is Q8

I may be in the minority but I like ‘c’ above. The inclusion of the eight pointed star is suggestive of the symbol often used in association with the cardinal points of the compass, and since it is the result of a collaborative effort of people in different countries with suggestions from many others…

Well, I would take that ‘C’ and change back to Thorfire logo, but white outline logo with black fill.

The Miller,

Thanks for the detailed explanation.

I would love to see the “faint distant idea of a bigger 26650 version” come to fruition, not just to light up the world, but for the potentially amazing runtimes on a medium-ish setting.

This seems like a really exciting time to become a flashlight enthusiast.

thanks

I so like the long runtimes of parallel configuration.
My Uniquefire UF 1401 s still going strong on low mode.
364.5 hours (click to high every couple of hours to check cell status, on low it says 7 now, on high 4 (out of 9)

How is the direction clear? Not saying it isn’t. Just asking what clear direction you got from this. For instance, I liked ‘E’ the best except for the way the logo was done solid white on black. I ultimately voted a different direction because of it. So, my official ‘vote’ doesn’t express how I really feel, but was the closest I could get with the choices available. I’m guessing from the comments that others feel the same way. So, actually, maybe the results of the poll AND the comments given should all be taken into account to do a second poll, with choices more in line with peoples’ stated preferences. The two biggest winners from this poll ( choices ‘D’ and ‘E’ ) can be included just as they are to see how they compare to the new 2 or 3 choices. That’s the direction I see from this poll, if anything.

I asked Will34 to whip up a Q8 and a Q6 logo without the Thorfire logo.
And if you remove the Thorfire Sauron D and E and closing the loop on A come pretty darn close don’t you think?
At this stage just a clear image to add to the OP is enough. A manufacters logo put in now is not needed
