Emisar D1 (XP-L HI NW) color and output measurements

Quite busy at the moment so I’ll just let the numbers speak for themselves.

I was surprised how cool the hotspot looked on max output. Very neutral but skewed towards green on the low modes which is quite surprising considering it uses PWM. The tint shift from lowest to highest is larger than on the 219C D4. Output matches or exceed the specifications.

The battery tube is visibly lighter than the head on mine.

Here’s some point of comparison.

Same thing with my green version, both head and tail cap are darker.

My green D1’s bezel and tail cap is slightly darker than the rest of the flashlight. It’s not noticeable unless you’re looking closely at it.

In my opinion Emisar should have made the D1 a bit smaller and with an orange peel reflector for better every day use. The D1S will fill the thrower need anyway.

I quickly tried the D1 with d-c-fix. It lost 9% of output while throw plummeted from 44kcd to 10kcd. The beam is very nice and smooth though.

Sorry, but did you test it with “maximum heat”?

I did test one, sure, only with my smartphone, but it didn´t step down so fast:

All tests were done on out of the box settings (49°C).

That much, from 440m to 200m reach?
