Thanks for the review. Is it mod friendly? I bought NE01 but didn’t like it. Apparently the new version of the NE01 is good this light being newer may be better quality.

I’m not much of a modded. I really don’t know. For the price, I’d venture to say, probably.

I was able to swap out the emitter of mine to an XP-L HI. I wrote about it in my review, and also compared stock numbers with modded numbers.

I may have spoken too soon. Anyone else noticing this light not charging batteries all the way? Mine is getting batteries just out of the red and then stopping. Didn’t catch it the first time around. It’s been 16 hours and a 3100 Keeppower will not even break halfway.

Can anything be done about this?

Update: Nope, the charging DOES work. You just have to press the activate button to get the light charging (blinks red twice per second).

Hey Joe,

Just finished watching the video; thanks man. Considering the so called constant current/ flat regulation; this probably is only applicable to the lower modes where the reducing battery voltage is still higher than the Vf. The light is not able to produce 1000 lumens at all times right? At least this is what I see with pretty much all single cell 3V emitter lights (with a buck driver).

No, light output stays constant.
