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?.

Both should work. Might rattle. Lower output with cr123, but should work.

I noticed that to, the led protector, centering washer needs twisted a bit like djozz says.

@djozz Nice trit candy, doesn’t have a tail switch so no lighted switch. The trit adds a custom look. Thumbs Up

@geuzz “The grease helped the feel of the control ring” are you using the friction grease that’s used in the V11R. I may try adding some to mine if it helps, mine has the detents. Looks like jetbeam may have listened to suggestions in this thread if there no more detents. Even though that seems awful quick to make a change in production from when it was brought to jetbeams attention here.

Mine had very little grease in it upon opening it up. I think the RRT01 was designed so that the small roller bearing with spring creates the resistance while turning the ring. The grease is just there to lubricate the roller bearing. The V11R has very little resistance without the friction grease. If you get the amount of friction grease just right, the V11R is way smoother. But the RRT01 is by no means rough. They are both pretty smooth but the V11R would win in this category. The one handed no flip to off is the best feature of the RRT01, just turn the ring to the far left and it’s off.
If I had to choose, I prefer my V11R that I bored to except 18350 with a 90cri 4000k LH351D and a loneoceans lighted battery indicator switch using the factory Sunwayman forward momentary switch with my current mod, this is a heavily modded light though. If I was choosing between both factory lights, I would choose the RRT01 for the simpler operation. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages. Both are great simple UI lights.

I do have the old style RRT01 on the way, jon_slider liked his so much I had to try the old style too and I’m pretty fond of the new style. If anyone needs a measurement or something feel free too ask and I’ll check when it gets here. I’ll probably mod it shortly after I get it.

might I ask how it is that you have one of the old style on the way? Few and far between I think?

From the link in this thread, post #214. http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1463227#comment-1463227
I emailed them and ask if they would ship to the USA. Tom said they do it all the time and that would be no problem. I couldn’t order from the site because my country didn’t have a shipping option, so I created a account and emailed them.
Tracking say’s it’s all ready landed in New York, 3 days from when I ordered. From the emails we had, seemed like a pretty good bloke. Big Smile

thank you, I’d forgotten I’d seen that … or maybe the $ kept me away. He has some ‘other’ amazing lights on his site.

I noticed this too. The centering has a square cutout on the bottom, the same size as the ledhole but not all the way thru and 45 degrees rotated. The led sits in this pocket now.

I use thick yetzl silicone grease from fasttech. It’s too thick for normal thread lubricating, but perfect for this. I have it in my V11R also and it holds up very well.

I agree it’s very quick if they removed the detents because of our comments here, maybe they had the same conclusion after producing the first batch.

Ahah, thanks Big Smile As I started the thread long ago with WTS part, I thought it ma be confusing (even after I added the “discussion about the 2019 model”)!
Thanks for clarifying Thumbs Up

It’s not a bad thing in this case, but too many derailed topics will confuse people and blur the subject.

I’m very happy with my new TCR1, just swapped the emitter. Considering adding a trit dot to it.

Thnx guys. I am starting to like it better also, even thinking of ice blue trits.

As it is build like a tank, I thought the bare aluminium would suit it. Real tool now.

I was looking for a good led for my RRT-01, it has to have good output but also a good tint 4000Knor less and great CRI, and the die size is not important. The output requirement limited me to LH351D and XP-L Hi but of both I have never seen the combination of good tint&CRI. Then I thought about the 4000K 90CRI XP-L2’s that I still have a bunch of, they have ugly green tint and the rainbow beam but perhaps slicing/dicing one would help. So I did:

It did not work out perfectly, the tint of the hotspot was 3600K, and just 89CRI, with R9 only just under 50. The green was gone and now only slightly above the BBL but it was still not great. Furthermore the rainbow was better but not completely gone, and there were a few more beam artifacts. The output was very good however, the same as the cool white XP-L Hi: just under 700 lumen.

So now I swapped in a SST-20 3000K, and am still not happy. The Jetbeam reflector is pretty unforgiving and still shows artifacts in the beam, faint rings where I do not want them.

Next try is a sliced LH351D.

Btw, you can get to the led in a conventional way, just screw off the bezel and remove lens, o-ring, reflector and centerpiece. Only con is (un)soldering the led wires inside a deep hole.

The never ending search for the best led.

I agree that the sst-20 is a bit ringy. If I remember correctly it was a bit better with the 45 degree rotated centering ring I had, but not sure. Maybe I’ll check it if I have it open again.

Where the rings also there with the original xpl-hi? I never really tried it.

No, the original led gave a quite perfect beam. I’m trying to find that LH351D I should have somewhere….

So did you strip it with the usual? Like drain cleaner etc? Thar looks really nice. I’ll probably leave it stock. If/when I drop it I’ll strip it.

Found it, my last one. Sliced it to close to the die and put it in the RRT-01, its fourth led today Facepalm

And now I’m happy. The beam is less ringy (but not 100% perfect), and while the SST-20 led had some tint-nuances inside the hotspot, this hotspot has a nice even tint.

While the 3000K SST-20 gave just 420 lumen, the output is back up to 615 lumen.

The tint of the hotspot:
At ~20lm low mode: CCT=3500K, duv +0.0021, CRI95 R9=80
At highest mode: CCT=3600K, duv -0.0001, CRI93 R9=70

So the tint quality is very good, much better than the sliced XP-L2, but of course slightly below the SST-20.

I think this is the best led I can think of for this nice flashlight, but there may be better ones in the future.

Yes, Just drain cleaner and a brush.

Indeed probably best to wait till you scratch your light. The stock anodising was quite nice, but I just had to do something with the light.

Btw. The slots work well with 1.5×6mm and 1.5×5mm trits, so 11mm total.

Too bad on short on 1.5×6mm. Time for another mixglo.com order…

Nice Djozz. Im staying with the sst. As I really like the tint and don’t mind the rings in use, but I might try the LH351D in it one day.

Djozz, what was the led before you sliced it. I see you tested it at about 3500k after the slice but what was it before, 4000k?
Or did I miss the info somewhere.
I’m using the 4000k from AEDe goup buy second batch. Just wondering if I should slice mine.

When I have a light that I like, I want to know a lot about it. I measured some currents on the lowest modes:

*With the ring clicked off: 27 micro-amps (4.5 years to drain your 1100mAh 18350)

*With the ring clicked on but no light yet: still 27 micro-amps

*Once it emits the slightest bit of light: a base-level of 9.7 milli-amps appears, going up when ramping up. So the max runtime, however subsubsublumen low you go, will never exceed about 5 days.

So when everything is asleep the current is really low, no need to mechanically lockout the flashlight (which is just as well because there is no easy way to do that). Once the circuitry wakes up it consumes 9.7mA on top of what goes to the led, which is not the lowest I have seen, i.e. the BLF A6 circuitry consumes 2.6 mA.

Edit: current on max, with LH351D led if that matters, is now 3.3A
