It seems to be a C8 with additional side switch and good narsil firmware. For that it have to be not too expensive.
Whats with the driver? Is it a Fet + N + 1 or Fet +1 or Buck, …?

Not so into the micro, maybe a pic of it in hand will change my mind.

Should I wait for the Mini GT or pick up a Thrunite Catapult V6 in the meantime? My finger itching to click on a buy button.

Here you go, from post #1.

A buck driver would also be really nice because rumor has it, the Nichia 219D has characteristics that are likely to be very good for dedoming. It also has pretty low forward voltage, which would make a FET driver inefficient at best, and possibly destructive.

Oh, you said micro. These unofficial names are tricky. The micro version seems very unpractical to hold. It looks neat, though. Lol

this light is cryng out extremely loud for a dual switch option- it could became perfect this way
Martin is there any chance to be made dual swtich? Its kinda useless this way, we have too many side switch throwers nowadays…what a waster relaly!

Same story as Emisar DS1….they never listen….

If enough members are willing to buy it goes straight to production? That’d be a bummer.

Has the team (if there is one) considered consulting BLF members if we want 20700/21700 support? What about sourcing a decent 1.5A boost driver?

If no, then there is nothing new with this light other than looking like the big GT. Sad

I have been looking for a side e switch single emitter c8, which this fills in my boxes for. Really hoping its got a ramping ui, or at least let’s me swap in a driver that does. Loving the fact that its a tiny version of the gt. That’s my favorite part. 18650 is fine with me too. Got plenty to put in it.

I personally prefer 18650, not that I think it matters much. They still have the best wh/L.

I would also love a buck/boost driver, but I feel like we are gonna get fet+1.
