This light looks beautiful. I’m soooOOOOO tempted.

Biggest downside for me would be the weight. I already find the copper-aluminum S-41 to be too heavy for comfortable pocket EDC. I hesitate to purchase an even heavier steel one no matter how pretty is is.

If I’m not mistaken, on the photo of the LED board, the black wire going to the + on the board means they addressed the concerns from the S41/E14. Does that seem right?

Sure seems like it.
But why are they also adding washers to the screws?

if you ground LED- the light is ON in DirectDrive (Turbo) without regulation Wink

Was this thing glued together? Looks like a lot of dirt on both parts of the front like it was.

Heat gun would probably release optic. But what a bummer.. Facepalm
It might also melt the optic unless it’s glass.

Possibly, they want to hide that the manufacturer is probably still manker.

it is for pretect the LED

Is it to protect led or manufacture identity?

Sorry, I'm new here and haven't done this before. How will I know when to order?

FYI, I have seen just the optic for sale (for Manker e14, same thing) on amazon for under $5, so probably even less on BangGood if they stock it.

 

Re: PVD vs. Flame, pretty sure this is flame. I think it would be difficult (if it's even possible) to achieve such an effect via PVD - plasma vapor deposits are usually (always? maybe?) a single substance or alloy, depositing a single colored layer onto an electrically conductive substance. The thickness is measured in microns, so flaming would be deeper as well, but there is no additional material as in PVD. Think of titanium nitride (TiN) coatings, commonly on motorcycle shock shafts, tooling bits, knives, gun barrels and bolt carriers, etc. - it's a solid gold or grey (titanium carbo-nitride) color usually, or black if it's diamond-like carbon PVD. There are a lot of other colors achieved by altering the substance that gets plasma vaporized, but I've only ever seen one at a time. Masking would leave a much more definite line. Of course I could be completely wrong, however, this is just my experience with it.

 

also, here is a pic of the inside of my fairly new E14 for comparison with the new astrolux pics: https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/t31.0-8/14241560_1010069449118926_8...

Dismantling S41S is easier than i thought.

I used a sharp pen knife to scrape off the excess glue around the edge first, then I swapped to 1.5mm straight bit screwdriver to pop out the lens. I approached from the rough surface edges (marked with white arrows in picture) for good grip and to avoid damaging the optics by accident.

Freeme, is it possible to measure the lumen output of the xp-g3 version!? Innocent

Hope is no option!

Just google image “rainbow PVD”… you’ll see it is indeed possible. What gives it out is they are too bright to be true. We’ve seen a lot of it lately on ecig stuff.

Manufacturer has confirmed that is indeed heat treatment. Guess we have to take their words for it.

Thanks, its realy a new MCPCB. The opening for the foot of the optic ist too big, that means it can not hold the Optic in place.
Or they have only leaved it white and rotated it 90°.

The heat paste is better as on mine S41 Flashlights.

Was it hard to remove the optic? How do you did it?

Does the parts lego with the S41/E14 from Manker?

… I dont believe that this is a new manufacturer. It was told but I do not believe it.

Finally found sometime to update the Interest list. Please check your order again if you have time.

 

 


 

 

There is no plan for that at the moment. Probably it will be available when there is excess stock.

Both the bare steel and rainbow steel look nice. I'm concerned about the glue though, and the likelihood that it might use the same green 219B emitters as the original. If I got one, I'd want to modify it. Or even better, empty host with no driver and no emitters on the MCPCB. Is there any chance of that?

 

Will ask for it. SS 18650 tube should be available for sale during pre-order. They are still rushing for colored ones. Will ask final pricing in the morning (China time).

Is the Heat treatment option going to cost more? If so how much? What is the cost of the 18650 tube? And Heat treated tube? Re-read through and can't find anything.

 

I can't get it light up with A6 tube but I heard it will work with Astrolux S1 tube.

Wait do I see a tail PCB ready for Pilotdog68 famous lighting?
Did I miss this and am I correct there is no little led there?
I have an Bistro driver with bleeder resistor but no tail PCB nice to swap it and use it with that.

No LED or resistor for switch board. There isn't a lot capacity to "waste" for 18350. That was probably why it was intentionally left out?

Too bad, I was told that there is too little time for premium box design at this upcoming S41S launch. We will leave it for next iteration.

My S41S fits well in my nylon Tank007 holster but I am not sure it will handle the weight for long term. If anyone like the idea of having a leather sheath/ holster for their S41/ S41S, do leave a comment below.

No problem, I can sure use that tail PCB though.

Sorry, 219C option is not possible at this stage. Personally, I am not a fan of 219C, it is rather close to this XP-G3.
