If you remember my video of the faulty RRT01… here’s a brief update. HK offered a replacement and I sent it back… they got the return on the 26th. I emailed them Monday if they had sent the replacement yet. They said they hadn’t gotten my return. I still had the receipt and tracking info… provided them that and pretty quickly got a refund for my purchase price and my shipping back to the NJ address. Was hoping for a replacement but I guess that won’t happen. So just a reminder- if you deal with HK Equipment and have a return keep your tracking info (like any retailer really). For now I’ll watch all the cool mods you guys will do with them. I’ve already spent that money on knives. I figured it was a little overpriced for what it was- maybe the price will come down and I’ll buy it again. I have to many zebralights and Emisars already.

AHH couldn’t take the pressure anymore. Ordered one with the madmax code.

What emitter are you guys thinking off for this light?
Will be between the 3000k sst-20 or 9080 sw40s for me.

cool, thanks
fwiw, it shows that to enable strobe does not require going to maximum, same is true for my Eye10

One of the features I like about the RRT-01 is that the strobe can be dimmed too

I really like my old RRT01. It’s the best ring-control light I’ve tried, and I got really lucky with the tint. 5000K and it seems to be right on the blackbody line. It just needs low voltage protection and a battery check mode instead of SOS.

With an Oslon White Flat emitter installed, the new RRT01 could become a very popular light. With such a throwy beam, it would really stand out.

Dang it. After reading this thread, I pulled out my modded jetbeam tcr1. I love the UI so much I couldn’t resist the group buy and bought an rrt01. Curses…

no
I have Keepower Unprotected 1200mAh and it works in my original RRT-01, so I suspect it will also work in the new RRT-01
otoh, my Keepower Unprotected 750mAh does not work (the button top is wider)

if you want the option to use Protected… the new model does
still no battery check, but now theres a strobe Wink
I would buy your old one..

I just got mine and can’t wait to get home and mod it with a Nichia 219b 4500 LED.

I noticed the LED already in it does not have a dome. Should I de-dome the Nichia as well?

No, do not dedome that LED. It has a small enough die and great beam for this type of EDC light.

This. It's got a good amount of throw and flood.

thanks. I have a flat white RRT 01 build on way, but on the look out for another RRT 01 to compliment it, but what to have as an LED?.
E21A?, Optosolis?, or even a triple?.
thanks

E21A if Clemence makes a retrofit “kit”, depending on the beam type he can achieve.

I would choose a single LH351D over a triple if you want floody.

I just got mine. Other than off and turbo, I don’t have detents on the ring, it’s just smooth.

My V11R does have a far better feel when turning the ring. Was there a post how to disassemble the light, so I can regrease the ring?

Not really actually. The ring action doesn’t feel nice. It has some scratches out of the box and the clip is made out of tin foil.

Guess it needs some modding love, for now I like my V11R better.

After much looking and inquiry, I found one! A lovely TCR1! Amazed these aren’t discussed more often. I am not usually a big fan of titanium, but this light is sublime, IMO.

My RRT-01 came in too, and since I’m not spoiled by owning a V11R, I love the control ring and how low the light can go! And it looks just as good in reality as on the pictures. The thin clip I see as useful, it is nice springy.
I soldered a brass button on top of a 1200mAh Keeppower 18350 so that will be its principal battery.
Now installing the (6×2mm) trits and contemplating which led it gets, maybe one that does not exist yet Smile

Glad you like it. It’s probably just me guys Facepalm . I’ll report back after I modded it.

Got mine. It’s decent. After I mod with a high cri LED or three, regrease the ring, swap clips and add trits, it will be great!

Seems like a lot of work but this UI is rare and nice.

Ok. Went to the shed to give it a go. Regreasing with thick grease improves the feel alot, bit still not like my V11R.

I can confirm that my light has no detents and is different than the lights showed earlier in the thread.

I put in a 3000k sst20 and I am starting to like it better. I’ll EDC it for a few days and will decide if it’s worth the expensive trits upgrade.

Rubber straps, a vice and pipe wrench. You have to turn the black part between the bezel and the ring counter clockwise and hold the brass pill.

Geuzz, it looks like the centerpiece is twisted 45 degrees and does not sit around the led but on top of it?

If this RRT works on 18350 , I have some Fenix 16340 700mAh and Duracell Lithium 123.
….would these be a good fit too or would it just be 18350?.
