Well, even if anything else in this light fails to attract, this is the first light I see with the 90+ CRI 219C, well sourced, Rey! I have not even had the chance to test it!

The tint is really nice, even if it makes output lower. Goes with the brass really well.

I don’t really find the S41 / S41S very interesting, in large part because I already have a Reylight Ti 18350 completely customized to my preferences, and it’s prettier, lighter, and has a clip. The Astrolux one goes for maximum output at a minimum cost, while Rey’s triple focuses more on doing it with style.

This brass light is interesting to me for similar reasons — because it’s a beautiful high-quality host… and it has a clip.

The Astrolux light makes a decent pocket rocket, an attempt to fit as much power as possible into a small space, but Rey’s lights are art.

zebralight SC5

If the zombie apocalypse came and I needed a practical survival light to stretch my last few batteries as far as they’ll go, I’d pick a Zebralight. But in common daily life scenarios I’m not too concerned about those things, and would rather have something a bit more luxurious. Like, a Jeep versus a Cadillac.

Zebralight has been consistently leading the pack for driver efficiency and boost power, and that’s a wonderful thing. But it’s not a very useful comparison here. The 535-lm SC5 AA doesn’t accept 14500 cells, is low-CRI cool white, only comes in military drab aluminum, requires 14+ clicks to go between 8 lm and 48 lm, isn’t moddable, and it costs nearly twice as much. Totally different beast.

I like Zebralights and have several, but if someone gave me a SC5 AA for free I probably wouldn’t use it… because for my purposes it’s kind of a downgrade from my Olight S1 Ti. However, this brass light is more unique and is something I’d find excuses to carry and use.

As a general rule, if it has a tritium slot, it’s probably not in the same market as type III hard-anodized aluminum lights. Smile

I did offer, at least. Smile

Rey, is banggood the preferred way to order this light, or do you prefer that people order directly from you?

Also, will the other design be available too (with flat sides and teardrop cutouts in head)?

I will start a pre-sale thread soon, after Gunga’s review. They will be sold and shipped by banggood.I have a job, and I don’t have much time to check and ship them one by one.

Thanks for the TK firmware last year. I can’t remember why I quitted and went for else.

Will the price be different from the current Banggood pre-sale price?

Mine, silly. Smile

I use variations of “cypreus2” on most of my personal FET+1 lights, and flavors of “s7” on most of my single-channel lights. They both have a lot of blinkies that nobody else really seems to care about. At some point, I’ll have to make a tiny25 version using bistro as a new code base, and use the extra space to add fancier blinky modes.

Just finished reading Dale’s review.
I’m glad that the body quality is great, unlike the pictures shown on Banggood’s website.

Thanks. I meant which of yours, of course. Smile

Well, I need to fix the formatting, maybe add some beam shots etc. Here's my take on the ReyLight Pineapple, here.

Overall, love it, especially at this price.

Hi Rey, do you know, can the 4000K 90CRI 219C led that is in the Pineapple Brass be found somewhere for sale?

Hi Slayer. Recommended procedure is using norland optical epoxy. Mixglo.com sells it. Cure it under a 365nm uv lamp or direct sunshine.

Ordered one! Nice reviews, Dale and Gunga.

Anyone have those ice blue trits from Mixglo? Looks like a lighter color blue, and not what BangGood has - think'n BangGood has the darker blue. I only have the yellows and wondering how other colors compare. I see Mixglo has a nice table for brightness.

Mine is the ice blue but the iPhone auto white balance makes it look dark.

Ice blue is probably the brightest next to green. They’re pretty nice. I’ve been getting my trits from MixGlo for a while now, they are some very meticulous folks over there! Smile
