Martin, have you had any way to see if it actually does 4200 lumen?
I think it might need 15+ amps at the tailcap to reach that output.

Also, do you think the 21700 battery is a good choice or should they have used a regular 26650 like other lights in this class?

I’m a bit worried it’s high price compared to rivals like the MR70 might be hurting it’s sales. Do you think the price is justified?

I finally watched your video all the way through and the yellow cell drew 11.4A on turbo. Was this a protected cell?

If so, then it definitely seems less than 4200 lumen. Maybe 3400 to 3500 is closer to actual output?

It would be nice to see the amp draw on an unprotected high drain cell like a Liitokala lii-40a. Even that 30Q would be good.

Should everyone have received some kind of notice yet, or are they still in the process of shipping the lights?

I have emailed Bruce at Wuben. Mine was the NW version so hoping thats the reason it hasn’t shipped yet.

I also have no information. I ordered the NW version, paid the first day of the offer and I have been waiting for it since then. Is there anyone who has already been sent a NW version flashlight?

How do those liitokala 21700’s fit? Does it accept the flap tops with no trouble?

It has a spring on the driver so flat top or button top will work.

40 or so watts will do that. Lol

Got my DHL Express tracking number today from Wuben. I ordered NW version. Since it’s express shipping I should have it pretty quickly. Thanks again Martin! I can’t wait to get this light. LOL

When testing the flashlight I found a new feature. When the flashlight is on in standard mode, the triple click jump to Turbo mode. The next one click is to return to the previous mode. There is no function in this manual.

There is an error in the manual:

Quote:
When the light is on, press and hold to get into instant turbo,  single click to turn it off.

It’s not true.

A long push when the light is on is off. We will get into Turbo mode by long press from off. Here are two more modes. Long pushing and holding for about one second means activating the Turbine only when the button is pressed. When the switch is released, the lamp turns off. If we hold the switch for more than one second, the torch is permanently activated into Turbo mode. Until the next press, when it turns off.

Not got mine yet. I got a waybill tracking number which does not tell me anything useful and this was emailed to me on the 9th. Bruce at Wuben says that my light was mailed the week before the 9th. I am just wondering how quickly other people got theirs delivered?
