I noticed at the link provided on the original post to the sale page at BG has this item listed as “discontinued”.(??)

As a newbie to the forum, and having looked around in it quite a bit, I have to ask – do any of these “theoretical” and prototype interest threads ever actually end up with an actual light in people’s hands? I think the Q8 thread has been going for over a year, and other posts almost as long, with no product yet.

I sorta get it if the response is, “well, we just like talking about theoretical products, and dreaming about what COULD be”, but I don’t want to get my hopes up when I find them describing something I’d very much like to actually own, lol Smile

All make it to production, this is a manufacturer produced light and will be a lot quicker than the Q8 which is a BLF designed light.

Southland – Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for the differentiation and response.
Any ball park figure on the group buy cost?

I’d be down for one for sure if I knew what they’ve done about the heat issue. I posted about my TN36 getting too hot to hold after 15mins. Is this much heavier? Does it step down earlier.

Too many questions I feel are left unanswered.

XHP70.2 instead XHP70 would be even more interesting.

2g lighter than TN26 10Klm. This prototype has yet to reach 9Klm mark, temperature taken for the prototype will not be accurate for comparison.

What other questions you guys want to know? Except delivery date. cool

1) Run time before step down
2) Thermal step down or time based step down
3) How hot does it actually get?

There is no step down on the prototype and Utorch was asked to leave it that way on the next prototype/sample. So you will need to turn it down yourself when you think it’s getting too hot.

SS flat bezel is my idea, I feel that is more inline with modern lights design like X7, TN36 or  MM25MB. SS bezel is much more durable and practical at the same time. After all, we are no creating a "tactical" class light here

 

X7R will be including a distance/ proximity sensor as a safety feature. Will be sick if they are able to incorporate such feature in UT03.

Do we really need 500 users for this?
What about paying 5$ more and lower the number to – let’s say 151? Silly
