Are you able to spot the similarities?

M8 comes with built-in charging function which is pretty handy in my opinion.

First thing i have noticed was the weight of the head, and i did a quick measurement.

 

Weight


Head: 195g ( 6.88 oz),

Whole light: 255g (9 oz)

M8 with 5000mAh 26650: approximately 350g (12.4oz).

Credit to cyp1350. From the buyers comment, M8 draws 5A on highest mode, follow by stepdown to 3.5A after 2mins. [To be confirmed after sample arrives.]

Hmm, a screwed-down Noctigon… If that implies that Hank is involved in this light I may be interested, provided the driver is high output direct drive type (edit: as I type, the 5A is added ^ , good enough for me Smile )

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

The UI seems quite complicated and slow… What are mod2 and mod3… 8 clicks!
I don’t understand how this works.
Parasitic drain?.. Tint options?
What’s that brand?

I think M8 is made by same OEM manufacturer as Hank’s.

UI is quite simple, similar to D4 v2 Ramping UI.
one press ON, one press OFF
press & hold- RAMP
2x press- turbo
3X PRESS- SOS
4X PRESS- TURBO MOMENTARY
6X PRESS- LOCKOUT
8X PRESS- BEACON

I heard that the Noctigon MCPCB is only on the prototype, the stock one is with the regular MCPCB.

Coupon no longer works. I pre-ordered one for $32.99. Hope it's ATtiny85 based - sure sounds like Hank's, but in addition has USB charging.

Betta the 5A is only because of FET based output with Hank's springs, etc.

It's either a ripoff or official project of Hank's.

About 0.72 times of D1s lux value for my 3m test. Not going to supply the measured values as I suspect my readings are on the high side for my GM1020 meter.

BG's listing says 800 meters, which, doing the math, is 160 kcd. For a 54 mm head diam and true FET driver, I suppose this could be possible.

I got the M8, D1, and D1S all on the way, but may be a little while yet.

From the pic above, though the M8's head is wider, looks like the reflector I.D.'s might be about the same - the M8's bezel setup looks wasteful on reflector width.

As freeme measured, maybe the M8 is not a true FET, or is using thin LED wires and poorer performing springs, or could be just the difference between a XPL vs. a XPL HI. Hank's Emisar lights use the great performing Beryllium copper springs, here: http://intl-outdoor.com/gold-plated-beryllium-copper-spring-5-pcs-p-831.html, shown with djozz's spring test results.

M8 is XPL, D1S is XPL HI.

should the preorder promo end date have been Dec. 12? Looks cool. I like the ramping since I got the Q8

BG has been suspended M8 preorder temporarily due to lack of stock. I will update once it is ready.

Received mine today - came on one of those green plastic padded cases, cheap but ok. Spare lens, USB cable, lanyard., o-rings.

it's a 4000K XPL HI LED - did not expect that...

I know it's a 4000K because today I also received a D1S from Neal with a XPL HI V2 5D 4000K and they match tint pretty much exactly.

The UI may be a V1 Emisar - last used level is not remembered, so from OFF, a single click always starts at lowest. The 3X click is battery voltage, not SOS as noted earlier.

The ramping is klunky - not consistent, and intensity of the hot spot is not as bright as the D1S, but it could be the battery I used.

The 26650 battery tube is too narrow - one LK 5000 cell I tried will not fit, but fits a Manker U21 perfectly. I popped in a EVVA protected I had laying around, fits but it's tight, but the length is another problem - partially crushed the + cap on the EVVA.

On the M8 there is a switch LED, blue, but it goes on when the light is ON, OFF when the light is OFF.

The M8 is a slightly smaller carry light than a U21, but quite a bit bigger than a D1S. Reflector ID appears to be bout the same as the D1S because the M8 has a wastefully wide bezel, though it's a nice chunk of SS.
