20700 + USB Type-C + 6V emitter, now that is some innovation Smile
But that UI will be a no-no for me, bummer Sad

That’s some bezel! I think I might be able to hoe my garden with it. Smile

On a more serious note, I just got MK41 as a gift for someone – very nice light!

Manker Torch Club; wasn’t this Manker’s first light? And if I’m not mistaken, this light was also made from 7075-T6. Could you please tell me why Manker chose this alloy instead of the more conventional 6000 series aluminium?

Will you offer a smaller and floodier version of this light? I’d buy 3 if it was made, best AA flashlight ever!. Would also love something like the Trunite Archer 1A V3 but with your awesome driver

For me that’s definitely the flashlight announcement of the first quarter. And I expect it to be a strong candidate for the flashlight of the year title.

Hi Manker, where’s the U21? Couldn’t find it anymore
Is it true that the U22 (65.000cd) throws less than U21 (124.000cd)? They both use the same XHP35 HI, correct?

U22 has smaller head (51 vs. 59 mm).
Still, the difference in throw is higher than the size would suggest. Even more so when you consider that U22 has higher output (1500 vs. 1200 lumens).

U22 was designed as a reliable utility for your daily use.
1. Smaller and lighter than U21, handy and compact, easy to carry .
2. Completely new driver design gives a full play to 21700 battery which will be the mainstream of Lithium batteries.
3. Optimized clicky side switch gives better feeling, smooth and soft.
4. 1500 lumens maximum output and 509 meters maximum beam distance with such a small body

Yup, looks like it. Anyway, does the U21 has been discontinued?

When can we expect to see reviews?

Can you explain why U22 is specced to deliver so much shorter throw than U21? It should be very roughly 15% worse, not 48% worse.

Thinking about it I came with 5 possible explanations (or partial explanations).
1. U21 may have been overspecced. That’s not the case, 2 reviews show it to be 1-3% worse than it should, within error margin (note: I compare cd/lm, not cd or lumen individually).
2. U22 may be underspecced.
That would be…extraordinary.
3. U22 may be overspecced….when it comes to lm, but not when it comes to cd
We’ve seen some companies scaling their claims as to cd and lm independently. Manker was not always perfectly honest with specs really…
4. Some difference could be explained by different reflector geometry.
If U22 was shorter (in relation to diameter), it would produce both fewer cd and more lumens.
But I don’t expect huge difference in geometry, maybe marginal.
5. Maybe reflector is of lower quality?
Such quality drop would damage Manker’s reputation and therefore is not something I’d expect.

Overall – I don’t know what to think about it.
That’s why I wait for reviews.

BTW, Manker, did you consider adding a powerbank function to this light?
This seems to be the only thing missing…

Here is a size comparison of the U21 and the newer U22. This is a pic from Skylumen.Com.

My Convoy L6 thread with XHP70.2, Texas Avenger FET driver, Narsil v1.2 ramping firmware (old), lighted side switch and cut down SMO reflector. Lots of amp draws on stock driver as well. 

My Supfire L5-S thread with XHP70.2, 26350 cells (4,100 lumen!), Texas Avenger FET driver, NarsilM v1.0 ramping firmware and lighted side switch. My mini L6!

Thanks for the photo, it helps a lot. And wow that’s a big difference!

I’d still like to know the actual measurements though.

Maybe, I don’t know. I’m used to seeing green or blue. Pink seems kinda custom. Me and DB tend to mod a lot of our lights with pink leds. I was thinking Vinh might have changed it to pink, as well.

If pink is stock, then that’s pretty cool.
