Just ordered the gold version. Thank you, Sofirn, these are nice lights. I like the ramping option, just wish I could totally eliminate the strobe modes. I really hate strobe modes.

Received my gold SP32A V2.0 light. Like everyone is saying, it’s not really a gold color at all, more brownish-bronze, but I definitely like the color.

It’s a nice light, but the switch is not very good, as it has significant takeup movement before it activates, which is a bummer. The switch on my SP10B is rock solid, with no takeup at all, giving instant response. Are the switches on these SP32A V2.0 lights all that way, or did I get a bad one? Is there any way to easily improve the switch, either by a mod or replacing the switch?

By “takeup” I am assuming you mean the ‘free travel’ before it activates??

Mine has it. To me it is a non-issue though.

Yes, the free travel issue is what I’m referring to. If most or all have switches like this, then I can live with it also. Just want to be sure I didn’t get a bad light that should be returned.

I got a black (sample), gold, gold, and silver. Only one of the gold has it, but I don’t recall offhand if the silver does. Black, definitely not.

Yeah, someone compared it to the button on a DSLR camera, a half-push of nothing and then the other half-push to activate. Personally, I’d like to get rid of the “slop”, but it doesn’t bug me… too much. No idea why some do and some don’t. Possibly slightly different parts (eg, switchcap) in different batches.

At least it’s springy and not just rattling around, though. If it were rattling around from “fully extended” to the half-push point, that’d totally bug me.

What would be awesome is if the half-push point would be a momentary-on, or something functional like on some Nitecores (MH20, P30, etc.). Then, it actually does something. LOL

Is it me or my eyes deceiving me? The color is not gold at all rather gun metal greyish/worn brass color?

And it changes quite a bit, based on ambient light, yep. Weird, but I like it. LOL

Nope, your eyes are apparently OK. Big Smile

Ordered the gold lights, can’t wait to see how they look. All of my lights other than my Emisars, BLF-348’s, and S1 are black. Thanks, Sofirn. Thumbs Up

So, I ended up returning my gold light for a refund. Didn’t want a replacement because of some others having play in their switch also, so didn’t want to chance the same issue again. The switch on mine was definitely wonky with the excessive free travel, and after playing with it for a couple of days, it was also hit or miss if I could double click it just right (super fast) to get it to go into turbo mode. Again, a really nice looking light, especially the color, but I just wish it had the same quality of switch that is on my SP10B, which has no free travel and easily goes into turbo, and is a great little light.

So “high” is only 500 lumens? That’s disappointing.

There is a mistake in the graphic above. The levels in mode group 1 are correct but it doesn’t show turbo. Double click gives me over 1100 lumens.
In mode group 2- ramping, the max is over 1100, not 500. Ramping goes all the way to turbo- no double click is required, but you can still double click if you’re in a hurry.

NO….it’s bright as hell on turbo. They just screwed up on the diagram.

Thought my eyes were deceiving me as in ramping mode max looked just as bright as turbo, thanks for pointing that out.

Whew, thanks for the info. My gold light will be here Monday or Tuesday. I knew the turbo was 1100—1300 lumens but I was bummed to think that I could only ramp up to 500 lumens. Glad to hear that’s not the case.:)

Indeed.

If there was any doubt, the manual also clearly states that in ramping mode, “Illumination: 5 lumen to 1300 lumen”

As for the switch, one of mine had the half-press travel new, and the other developed it with usage.

Color? If you like Convoy’s Desert Tan, you’ll like this.

Got my two gold lights in. Love them. Beautiful color, and excellent quality. These lights are a bargain. Some rings in the beam pattern. Super bright. My switch is tight. Thanks Tracy!!

Update: FYI, One of my lights has a tight switch, and the other one has some free play in the switch, so luck of the draw I guess. Still a great light, but I don’t like the free play.
