Like the look of this, HI version seems like a nice pocket thrower.

I usually do not dig Manker’s designs but this one I find really attractive. I would like to see it next to the competitors to compare size: SD10, EA4, D40A, VG4 etc.

Nice one Manker; really dig the price as well! Can you please tell me the parasitic drain value? Thanks!

Really nice looking flashlight, nice with the dual battery option, but I think the best part is the NW emitter option Thumbs Up

A nice compact Pocket Thrower. I like it very much. Interesting is the option with 4x 14500 battery. Fits very well into my booty scheme and comes on the have-want list. Thank you for showing me.

I like the light and the power with 4xNiMH, Thumbs Up
about option 4×14500 not interested in use this configuration…. for use Li Ion I prefer other options like 26650, 1 or 2 ×18650, etc.

Here's an in-depth vid review of both the HI & HD; features both indoors & outdoors beamshot comparo's vs. other 4 x AA (albeit older gen) lights (Sunwayman D40A, ThruNite TN4A XP-L V6, Jetbeam SRA40) as well as Runtime on Turbo with various batteries:

Working on the written portion which should be up in a day or two.

 

EDIT: Apologies for the horrendous audio for majority of review, had incorrect setting on the camera... Sad

EDIT 2: Written review now up: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/53779

I may take the HD depends on the price!
Edit: Price a bit high than I expected!

I measured standby drain as follows: 

This is outstanding and is so trivial as to not merit concerns with leaving Eneloops (or equivalents) in the MK41 long term. While it’s still excellent for 14500’s, due to the substantially lower capacity, I’d exercise a little caution.

*leaves cell’s self-discharge out of the pic so anticipate slightly lower

Can protected 14500 fit without problem?

Thanks a lot! Well, personally I consider a 1 year drain time with Eneloops only “acceptable” if I really like the light a lot. Unlike lithium ion, Eneloops do have a self discharge time of many years, which simply is not taken advantage of… I (personally) compare this light to the Thrunite TN4A, which has a self discharge time of 35 years (65 uA)! I do wonder now what the parasitic drain on the bigger MK35 is… Perhaps you can be so kind to measure this as well?
To me, parasitic drain is perhaps a more important aspect of a light than UI.

Here's a demonstration (and measurements) of the different output levels one can program for the Moonlight and Turbo modes of the MK41 HD & HI:

@Hikari - the MK35's standby drain is ~3.33mA so a little on the high side vs. other electronic switches I've measured.

Thank you very much!

(For me this means MK35 = Fail)

Well, only if you plan on leaving it on the shelf unattended for extended periods of time but that would be heresy of us flashaholics no? lol  Kidding aside, I'm not sure what goes into reducing the standby current for each current but it'd be nice if that could be improved upon. Of note is that mine is an engineering sample, I do have the production board which I will swap out with and redo the runtime and output as well as retesting the standby.

I will not buy any light with a step-down.

Crappy, weak new ones, yes. They didn’t used to. I steer clear of most new products for this very reason.

Thinking that’ll be because the older ones have nowhere near the max output of the current generation…

Until the next technology breakthrough step downs are here to stay.

Unfortunately not, unless you can find ones that are shorter than 50.3mm. While you can technically use slightly longer ones, you won't be able to completely screw in the tailcap and it'll expose the o-ring. Additionally, you may risk damaging the cells by over-tightening it to get it to close that gap. Best to stick with IMR's if you are contemplating use of Li-Ion's.

Thanks turboBB.
My favorite is XHP HD.
Did you notice lumens decrease on turbo when Ni-Mh battery are around 1,15 – 1,17V?
Also turbo mode is 5 minutes at 1500 lumen. Are rated lumens stable at all this 5 minutes?

@Tangra - I've posted the runtime chart for each in my written review: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/53779

I haven't tried with cells at that voltage but as with pretty much every light out there that isn't perfectly regulated, a decrease in votlage/capacity will negatively impact the output. As for the Turbo before step down, it's not stable but the good news on the HD is that it's actually slowly ramping up during this time and will spike to around 1700 lumens right before the step down. I'll include a blow up chart of that in future update.
