The design is so appealing, it’s a beauty!
The white (looks silver to me) could’ve been plucked out of Taylor’s backpack in the original Planet of the Apes. Ordered a yellow but considering a white to keep the other cell in. Ugh.

Mayor Glenn Welsch: There's a saying in Missouri, if you don't like the weather just wait five minutes. In Blaine, with hard work, I think we can get that down to three or four minutes.

The price will go up some after this pre-sale but they will still be very affordable... I have already decided that I want to give several of these out as Christmas gifts. My only problem is muggles. 

The ramping U.I. is super simple to use but having to explain lithium Ion cells and why they must use a bit more caution and attention is where it becomes the hardest.

Totally safe but must be respected.

Just placed an order for a Blue one in NW. Thanks for feeding the addiction.

Any plans for offering SC26 type body with different emitter(s)?
I’m thinking the current pocket rocket kings have some major shortcomings, shortcoimings that an SC26 like host could overcome.
Specifically, the D4 suffers from very short high ouput runtimes and poor heat management.
Tiny 26650 3th is less bright than D4 and suffers from quality control issues.
Neither of them have much throw.
The slighly larger SC26 body style (with significanly larger capacity battery) could surpass both these lights, and offer a smaller 26350 ff when even smaller matters.

I do like the SC26 form factor, AND I want a small pocketable light that can do 3000 lumen (for more than a few seconds), and I want a reflector. I suspect this could be a popular combo- look how popular the D4 is.

The other lights I’ve seen similar to my desired specs are at least 2 of the following 3:
substantially larger;
substantially more expensive;
offer only CW tint.

And none offer a stubby 26350 option.

Let me rephrase:
small as possible with modest reflector.
2500+ lumen
Good runtimes (26650)
able to become smaller, of course sacrificing much runtime and/or brightness (26350)
CW, NW, WW options.

So, I nominate Haikelite. Perhaps they could just adapt an XHP50.2 or XHP70.2 into SC26?

Please?

If we are making a wish list… the sc02 driver and mtg2 would make a really cool light in this size.

I typically try to actually provide or at least provide links to adequate chargers/batteries, and give a speech, something to the extent, “only charge on relatively fireproof surfaces with no readily flammable objects nearby, including above.” I like to throw in the hand grenade analogy too. That usually puts the fear of [higher power(s)] in them.

Is this SC26 smaller than SC01?

I’m just trying to understand why someone would want SC26 over SC01 that puts out 2,000 lumen, other than the ramping UI which SC01 does not have.

Well, to get any of the emitters to work that you listed it would need a boost driver. I think if they put a boost driver in it, it would make an awesome MTG2 light lol

The SC26 is a touch over 3 inches and under 100 grams.

Yeah, but that 3.3 inches has got to be with a 26350 cell. With 26650 cell it’s going to be about 4.5 inches.

No I am pretty sure that is with the 26650. I am measuring my 26650 Purple Efest and it is 2.60in so the 3.3in size could very well be with the 26650.

 

A 26350 is closer to 1.37 or round it up to 1.4in long so should be a good deal shorter...

Looking at the photos you posted, I’d say chances of this are slim to none, but I guess you’ll let us know when you get the prototype.

Still looks tempting… especially in that navy blue. Smile

No I am gonna let you know shortly... I have a call in to Dale now lol... I am betting it is 3.3 at it's longest. Take out your caliper and measure out a 26650 then measure out to 3.3 inches. There is actually enough space. I am looking at mine laid out here in front of my and looking down at the caliper showing how much longer 3.3 inches is compared to a 26650 cell kind of stunned me as well... But hopefully we will know shortly.

Way too small for that amount of heat... It would be fun but useless.

Looks like a very compact light even though it will undoubtedly be longer than 3.3” with a 26650. Will be ordering nonetheless.

Move towards the light.

LOL you win... Using the 26650 extension 4.6 inches or 115mm. Still a good deal shorter than most of my 18650 EDC lights.

In length it is very close the a TG06... Still pretty decent. 

 

There are still plenty of lights coming in the near future.

Do you mean fun but useless like that slow selling flashlight Emisar D4?

Is that 26650 with the extention tube installed? What is the beam angle? (I like floody lights)

 


I’m honestly not sure of the beam angle but I will find out for you. 


Thanks.
Is the diameter the most wide part of the light?
I like lights with the head no wider than the body. It makes them extra compact.
I hope one of your future lights will be 21700 based.

From the way it looks in the pictures ot looks like the battery tube is a bit slimmer than the head. But, until the prototype Dale is shipping me arrives I can't say that for a fact...
