Hi Dear, I have used 99,9 isoprophyl alcohol and window cleaner (blue liquid) none of those were harmful to the AR coating (purplish or greenish) I guess the traces you see when you use 70% isoprophyl is due to the residue left of almost 30% water content. Hope this help you.

I have to smile when I see you post nodoubt… we had a good friend named Winston that worked in an Automotive parts store who used to say No Doubt! all the time! lol [ie: “These parts are EXPENSIVE!” “No Doubt!”] As such, your tattletale response above elicited an immediate “No doubt!” in my mind, making me laugh at the double entendre. (all this instead of simply saying …)

no doubt… No Doubt! Wink

I’m thinking of getting a 2nd TN42, would the CW be better at cloud-lighting than the NW? After all it is a cooler temperature beam that works wonders at illuminating fog than a warm one.

Cooler tints tend to have more backscatter in general, and so probably would illuminate the surface of a cloud more. When trying to illuminate solid objects to view them, this is a disadvantage, but it might well work better for that.

CW has the most throw and lumens, NW loses some ground on it in sheer power and downrange punch. It was the CW that I tested at a mile.

Thanks for the advice. Was torn between the personally better tint of the NW and the cloud-lighting and power of the CW. Guess i’ll be having a CW this time!

Thanks for the advice. How about 95% denatured ethyl alcohol? What’s denatured even mean anyway?

If memory serves, 70% alcohol, often labeled “Rubbing Alcohol”, has a small amount of oil in it to not be as drying to the skin. The easily found 91% isopropyl should leave less of a residue.

I’m with you. I much prefer neutral tints. I am working on a Neutral tint TN42 mod for release soon. It will out throw all the TN42 mods to date. Including the CW versions. And this without the lumen penalty going to a smaller die. So best of all worlds. Smile

On my website. onestopthrowshop.com The site is admittedly very barren ATM. For about 7 months now I have been in an intense research phase. No time to make lights. Been working on fundamental technologies to enable a new generation of lights. Something special. It has gotten harder and harder to stay ahead of the game. I really have no desire to push high volumes of product. There are some things that can only be done with time, patience, and a deft hand. Wink

Before my flashlight era(BFE) I started a company to make mod and racing parts for Saabs. Saabs were my chief love at the time. My wife started to get spooked about liability however so I pulled out. I have always had a deep love of engineering and I am glad to have an outlet for this in flashlights. As I have said before I will do it until I get bored. Ten years in now and hasn’t happened yet though. Smile

Nice to see you Michael! Thumbs Up

I am Capolini’s twin,,,wolfdog!

I know one thing The OSTS TN31mb that you sold me had the highest lux of any!! It was the last one you sold after the run was done………470Kcd. I bet you could get that up to 600Kcd + with the improvements over the last 3.5 years.

I admit,,,I have used that same bragging line about 4 or 5 times now!!!

Yeah I made the connection with you “two”. Recognized your dog. Big Smile
That light could get up to about 650. There are some serious limitations with that platform and available LEDs that would prevent me from going higher. Same thing I have been struggling with trying to create an upgrade path for the DEFT-X and Victor line.

yeah, guy named alex got one from vinh, and tested the exact same reading that the random guy got, on his meter
who knows, maybe vinhs meter test lower, alexs meter higher, random guys higher, diff batteries , etc, etc….
only way to know would be compare head to head same batteries, same room, meter, same tripod position, etccccc…
i get a kick on how some of you guys on here love to bash vinh, and i think ive got it figured out
hes took his passion, the same one alot of you guys have,turned it into a business, and is probably making a 6 figure income doing it for a living, and it eats you guys up …
haters gonna hate…..its a normal human thing for most…. Silly

XP-G2? Why? Can’t a de-domed XHP35HD at 2.8amps and countless hours of focusing do up to 900kcd?

Just asking….

How was that bashing vinh…?
Are you just making assumptions or are you oversensitive or what?

He even said so himself that all he cares about is lumens, not lux.
