15mm should be too big, 12 might fit. We’ll see.

12mm is tiny. These drivers mention only work with li-on. So this will no longer be an AA light. It will be a 14500 light. Meh.

Do we need a programable driver or just a simple 3/4 modes one? 14500&AA compatibility is a must?

I just want AA. 3/4 modes is okay as long as it’s well chosen, l-m-h, no memory (or switchable), with good low moonlight (below 0.2 lumen) and well spaced modes.

What Gunga said.

Solid, reliable driver l-m-h with good moonlight would be my preference for a classy custom light.

Simple 3/4 modes, nicely spread with moonlight mode will be fine.
Compatibility with 14500 is a bonus

0.2- 10-50-100 lumens? (maybe only 85 lumens with Nichia and AA) reverse protection, low voltage reminder, none PWM, option for Nichia and XPL HI?

Hi, I am interested in this flashlight.

Are you able to get 300+ lumens from single AA like the Zebralight SC5 and Manker T01?

With XPL and 14500, I think yes.

For Nichia 219B and NimH the following modes look optimal to me:

80 16 3 0.5 lumen

reasonable amount of light with reasonable runtimes, no wow factor.

While I use 14500 myself, proper support for it (like sc52d) would increase the price very significantly.

14500 support would be nice, no visible PWM would also be nice. I for one, on a small light thing that the lowest output mode should be first or there should be memory. Tiny lights are great on the night stand. AA would be ok, if 14500 support would stink or the other way around would be fine as well. I would love to see it with a 219b, that way I don’t have to disassemble and change it right away. That tint is so easy on formerly sleeping eyes!

I’m good with 5, 25, 50-100 and then BAM 400+. XPL?, XPG?, …most lumen

Would this be an extension tube to make it a 2xAA light? It’s already AA sized, right?

Really starting to look good! A single trit in the tailcap in the button and it sounds complete!

Yeah I’m liking where this is going. Did we ever get a firm price on this? If so, maybe it should be in the original comment. I think it might scare people when the first mention of price is the $500 in the second comment, which is no longer relevant.

We’re making AA light, if people are requesting about an extension, we’ll make it too. it depends.

I’m not crazy about the clip. Maybe it’s just the strip hole looks out of place? Could it be made so that it’s deep carry and reversible?

Opposite of RH64 I like the clip AND the design. My opinion only
