My SS enogears do both work with 14500s btw. Only one worked with a standard flat top 14500. The other one needs a solderblob to work.

Yes its about a 5D. I took a comparing picture.

“Flasholism is the most severe form of flashlight use and involves the inability to manage your flashlight use habits. It is also commonly referred to as flashlight use disorder. Flashlight use disorder is organized into three categories: mild, moderate and severe. Each category has various symptoms and can cause harmful side effects. If left untreated, any type of flashlight use can spiral out of control.”

That’s a great comparison. I didn’t realize the 219b sw40 is that rosy? I thought only the sw45 was. I’m guessing that’s 9080 right? It makes everything else look yellower than they appear in real life. The stock enogear NW looks rosy in real life but looks yellowish in your beam shot. Where did you get the 5D xml2? Is it 90CRI? It looks great.

The camera is exaggerating the collors,but they are there. Below I turned the tones down a bit to come closer to what I see irl.

That xml2 is a 80+ cri, but I think it’s a real tint lottery winner, just a perfect tint. Never going to swap that one out.

219b is a 9080, to be honest I find them a bit boring. And the latest batch of sw45 were to cold and violet for me. So I am glad to see new emitters lately with great tints and cri.

I have ordered one this week since its only 14,9$, did not get any confirmation except from PP, we'll see what happens

 

I didn't get an email confirmation on my first order either, but received it OK. If you create an account on Enogear.com before ordering, a history of your orders is listed therein, and you can be assured that your order is in the system.  But before you order, make sure you are logged-in.

Reference my previous post, Jackie answered my email and said that he was glad that I liked the SS AA/14500 flashlights. He also told me to keep the extra flashlight as a gift. This makes me believe that I was sent the extra flashlight by mistake. I hope it wasn't someone else's order. 

He also conspicuously didn't answer my question about the compatibility of the SS AA/14500 with 14500 batteries. However, I have been running a 14500 battery in one of my SS AA/14500 flashlights for about a week now without any problems. I would bet that orders going forward for quite-some-time are probably compatible since the product page boldly says so.

I liked mine quite alot. Unfortunately it died within a couple months with very little use. Not sure what I will do with it now. Sad ** I emailed Enogear very fast response and they are going to mail out a new head : )**

Thanks for the IRL pic, Geuzzz. The NW Enogear looks much more pleasing than the yellowish tint in the other picture. Based on your pic and other comments, I ordered one in NW.

Marnav1, this light has a 1 year QA warranty. I’d contact them about the problem to see what they can do.

You’re welcome. You won’t be disappointed by the tint. Please let us know when it’s there.

I have had both types for more than 6 months and have only used 14500’s in them the whole time without any problems.

Would it be possible for you to compare it with other lights (or a 18650 battery), just to have a notion of the size they have?
Thanks in advance!

Tint looks a little like a 5c. does anyone have the on the road m3 5c NW and the nw enogear SS light ?

 

 i looked really hard at this light when Enogear first popped up on the scene the AA nw SS is really my cup of tea ..But low PWM is a deal breaker . I've only looked at this light 1000 times  Silly

As mentioned earlier, I have the OTR M3 with the 5C NW tint. It is spec’ed at 3500-4000K 5C. To me, mine is pretty warm, slightly less warm than the Enogear NW beamshot in post #174. I really like the OTR M3, just wish it was around a true 5000K, but I still highly recommend it to friends. Gotta love that magnetic tailcap.

I hate the lime yellow tint on the OTR NW so much that I gave it away. The Enogear AA NW is way better. It’s rosy color. The Enogear AA in the beamshot comparison above doesn’t look like the two NW I see in person.

My light has a removable 14mm Airayland driver, fixated by a retainer ring with six “lobes” on the inside. The ring has a normal thread, so to loossen it you have to turn it counter clockwise. It is quite hard to get a grip on. You might try it with a pry, but applying force on just one point is seldom any good. I managed to get it done by pushing the outside of a set of needelnose pliers into the inside of the (shallow) lobes. Fortunately there is an even number of lobes. Once the ring is off you can make slots, or drill holes, in it. For next time.

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

It is difficult to take a beamshot with this light, because of the very bad and low PWM. I can only take in high mode.
Mine has a really good white-rosy hotspot nothing to complain. The corona-spill is not good but you can see it only on the whitewall. I would say mine is like 4D.

Unfair comparison to see the hotspot.. Left: 219B from ROT66. Right: EnoSS NW

I hope my SSAA light will arrive soon. First i ordered there was something wrong with the paypal payment (did not get through). But the second time i got an email confirmation that my order has been shipped out by mail post.
So i will wait.
Hope that you will get your light or your money. Let us know what they decide.

I contacted in July and August and told me that regular mail may be lost and a refund can be provided.
But the next three mai contacts have not been answered yet.
This kind of flat mail , I was the first time I encountered a packet loss.
I don’t want a refund, I can pay the shipping fee, just want to get it.

So, I decided to just buy additional SS AA/14500 flashlights...

Got an email from Jackie Zhang (at enogear@hotmail.com) today stating that the above Aug 28th order was shipped today, Aug 30. It was sent via Hong Kong mail post with tracking. I believe that tracking is included with orders over $20 USD. The stated ETA is 15 - 30 days. I will try to post the actual arrival date.

My new SS AA/14500 order arrived today, Sep 14, 2018.  So the total time from order to delivery was 17 days! It had a Prepaid Germany Postfach label on it so maybe it came through Germany - probably via air. The flashlights tested good and the CNC quality is still there. 

FWIW, I can clearly see PWM in both Low and Med Modes if I wave the flashlight in front of my eyes. But I don't pick up on it during normal operations. My wife hasn't complained about her SS AA/14500 either, and she is sensitive to PWM. Maybe the appealing warm tint helps somehow.

I ordered a couple TC8’s, and the Titanium aaa light on 8/27. Shipped 9/1. Tracking on USPS site didn’t register anything until 9/10, when it said it was in Compton, CA, and USPS was awaiting the package. I’ve checked daily, and it hasn’t changed. I figured it might have gotten hung up in customs.

I was looking at the shipping email, and noticed it was sent DHL ecommerce. Figured I’d try DHL tracking. Regular DHL tracking didn’t work, but I found the DHL ecommerce tracking site.

https://webtrack.dhlglobalmail.com/

Surprise, surprise, it’s somewhere in Illinois, and scheduled for delivery tomorrow. Will probably come the last mile via USPS.

I love the smell of Titanium in the morning!

I am really hoping that you aren’t as disappointed in the TC8 as I was. I gave it away. Which was kind of cruel to the poor guy who got it. Hope you’re modding it.

That’s the plan. I couldn’t find much of anything about the TC8. I went into it thinking it’s a 40.00 host. Current quote from a pro moder is 100.00 to get it up to snuff. Vinh 45 seems like a decent sort.

If I am a total idiot, please let me know.

By the way, the DGQ/DQG AA is fantastic. I can’t remember what it’s called.

But I thank you. I like it a lot
