Just got one, beautiful little light, wondering if anyone has one and “dived” (haha) into it yet.
Takes a 26650, or 18650 with the included tube, has a switchless tailcap that covers 3 O-rings. Everything else seems to be put in through the front lens side, ‘though I haven’t opened that up yet. Tempted not to (and risk ruining any seals).
There’s a magnetic switch, a little captive slider with magnet, no opening, slot, nothing. Inside looks like a Hall-effect sensor that reads relatively-speaking how close the slider is, and sets the light brightness accordingly.
There’s a slight “jump” from off to its lowest setting, and v/v. Also, once you get pretty bright, there’s also a slight jump to full-tilt. Nothing objectionable, at least not to me.
Obviously, this critter is always “on”, at least as far as sensing the switch, so there’s some parasitic drain. The threads aren’t fully anodised to the point where you can do a tailcap lockout on it. In fact, with the slider set to “on”, just putting the cap in place makes the connection before even getting the threads to engage. So that means not keeping the cell in the light 24/7.
Gotta say, though, the color is a beautiful shade of indigo, and pix don’t really do it justice. The red trim is a nice touch, too.
So… anyone else have one? Played around with it any? Solved how to keep the cell from draining when not in use?
