I really like clips that go under the tailcap. Especially if they can be reversed.

Is there a price range for this light yet?

Paid some money to the factory, I think we might have a prototype within this month.

I’m interested in this.

Also, the CNQG brass AA light would be a nice host for a BLF special edition. All it needs is a better emitter and a better driver, and the driver designs are already on oshpark. It would end up being 14500 only though, if using a BLF driver.

I got three of the hosts and am planning to mod them… but I’ve had them for quite a while and I’m dragging my feet.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing how this goes. Smile

I like the clip, the one which secured by thread, not just attached on to the body.
Time to activate my piggy bank!

Can we buy extra drivers too? It would be so helpful.

Both models look very nice.

What size driver and emitter board will it take?

I’ll take it in copper if it’s reasonably priced (like $50). No interest in Brass or Damascus for $500.

I like the brass prototype, would be interested in a copper version… The Damascus one has flat spots in the tube for logos but it could look out of place if there’s no engraving. I think a knurling or tube pattern will suit it better.

The flat spots don’t look good on brass, but I think it will looks great with dama paterns.

First thought is 0.2-3-25-100 lumens on Nichia, but we just found that 0.2lm is barely noticeable. pictures below:

Those modes sound almost perfect, though I’d suggest making the two middle modes slightly higher. Like, 0.2 lm / 5 lm / 32 lm / 100 lm.

How bright was the room when those pictures were taken? A 0.2 lm mode is only for use in very very dark places… It’s fairly common, when someone turns on a light in moon mode during the day, that they won’t realize it’s on without pointing it at their face.

Thanks!

I’m always looking for nice small hosts which can be modded easily, and this sounds promising. Smile

How much are we talking about for the brass? Just a ballpark figure is good for now…

Interesting. It looked smaller than that.

I have a couple brass 18650 lights which are about 20.5mm * 97mm, and some brass AA/14500 lights which are 17mm * 76mm. So, those are both possible. They’re not as detailed though, the body accents are shallower, the switches aren’t recessed (only flush), and they don’t have any diameter difference between head and body.
