Thanks. Also, what clip are you using with that D4 shorty?

DC-CLIP-1 from MTN . Cost $1.10. It fits perfect and works for me.
There are some pretty nice clips available, some here have posted $25 for a clip, on a $40 light makes no budget light minded sense to me.

I don’t use the clip for anything but my hat mount on the 18350 shorty. The shorty fits perfect in my jeans little coin pocket like it was meant for it, so to me, the D4 shorty does not need a pocket clip.
The clip does work perfect for the 18650 tube D4.

Is that the same as OEM clip that comes with Convoy S2+? I’ve got a few of these sitting around here somewhere.

Not sure if its the oem Convoy clip.
But it fits my s2+ my c8 and D4, perfectly.
Check out MTN, they seem to be back ordered a lot lately since they fit the D4, as with anything that fits that light.

IMO, the D4 might be the best small all purpose light ever engineered, and thats coming from a M E thats got dozens of high priced quality’ lights. And its being improved on all the time. Got to luv guys like Hank that take pride and know how to build us ‘real quality innovative mainstream available lights.
Word is the new D4 has an improved star mounting system with screws instead of the typical reflector/bezel press/tension fit. Suppose to be better heat transfer… oh joy more heat to the head/tube…lol

Thanks, but if it weighs 60g empty, then it would be 85g loaded.

Is there an 18350 tube for DQG Tiny 4th by any chance?

Hum…perhaps a Convoy S2+ or a Jaxman 18350 tube? Maybe a owner of a DQG and a shorty tube can provide that info!
Well thought Pete!

Olight h1 the old one without the charging bay is 43 grams with a protected aw 16340. Won’t take an 18mm cell but its one of my lightest little lights and my dedicated headlamp for that reason (also output, color and modes are just awesome). For the weight difference you can just carry a spare cell, two 16340s still beat a single 18350 in capacity.

using 18350 cell

2 hours of runtime at about 300 lumen

don’t want to use a head strap.

has preset output level

any luck finding your dream light that:
1. weighs 60 grams with an 18350 Aspire,
2. does 300 preset lumens for 2 hours,
3. with a bezel up pocket clip, and
4. built in overdischarge protection? (the Aspire 18350 is unprotected.)

Olight S1 Mini, 60 grams w 16340, +17 grams for a spare battery to achieve 2 hour runtime @ 300 lumens, total 77 grams

Emissar D4, 77 grams w 18350

The high capacity IMR cells both in 16340 and the 18350 version, are not protected. The D4 has built in over discharge protection. The S1 Mini also has built in over discharge protection, but the S Mini does not.

[quote=ZozzV6]My Skilhunt H03 shortened with Astrolux S41 18350 tube is 65g with Aspire 18350 battery.

But you cannot buy the S41 tube by itself, only the S1/A6 tube, are they the same?

EDIT: Should be the same since the 18650 Ext. tube fits all of them S41/S42/S1/A6
