I guess I dont see the appeal. Isn’t this exactly what an e-switch light does? one handed operation with dimming but without option of memory?

I got the V11R and it’s cool because it does something no other light does (dimming + mode changing while “off”). You can also “set it and forget it” if you wish.

so this doesn’t have a tail switch like the V11R? You have to mess with the ring every time you want to turn it on?

Despite the subsequent replies, I firmly believe there’s no answer to that, not a family friendly answer anyway Evil

That’s the difference between these two control ring lights. V11R has to be flipped or hand hold changed to hit the switch but remains at what ever level the control ring is set to.
RRT01 doesn’t require anything but the turn of the ring for on and off but always starts in moonlight, no memory so to speak.

Each design has its own advantages. V11R on/off is tail switch controlled, so your hand will be in a specific orientation. You then have to change it to adjust intensity (or use your other hand). But then you have on/off control with a fixed output. RRT-01 has only one control, so you’re always holding it in one orientation for on/off and intensity. If you’re used to having a sequential set of fixed brightness levels, it’s a very different feel. Some people may simply not like it.

I prefer the RRT-01, KISS!

for those who dont like KISS, there is also the HDS Rotary..
has a tailswitch, and a Rotary dial at the tail (flipping optional, I do),
its regulated, has memory, and can be programmed for fixed brightness levels too…
for people that can live without a deep carry pocket clip,
and get turned on by reading manuals about multi-clicking

Haha, I was being more sarcastic than anything. Who would have thought to look at Battery Junction when the info should have been in the OP? If it turns out to be an xpg3, I won’t order it. Isn’t that the old version at BJ and in the OP?

I signed up. Always liked these lights since I did an early mod on the original several years back, think updating an XML to an XM-L2.

I saw that post. The old one looks “fatter” to me, which is why I was confused

I ordered 3 of these during new year sale. https://www.fasttech.com/p/4159008
I’m just hoping they fit from the measurements I took.

Those slots are 12 mm long? I was think'n they were for the std 1.5x6 mm size, but from the pics, they have to be longer than 6 certainly, so probably the 12 mm size you ordered.

The new version looks much sexier to me. Too bad it’s likely way out of my budget, even with the group by discount.

The 2×12mm trit slots will not fit the RRT01 without modification, there a little to long. 2×10mm should fit fine.
More info here with pics. http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1467214#comment-1467214

Not without grinding. Best I can tell the slots are 2.25mm in width. Seems they intended the slots to fit 2×10mm but the 2×12mm is more common at our usual oversea’s stores.

Can you confirm the bezel isn’t glued on the new version?

The bezel is not glued. Came off easily. The part of the head above the ring has a touch of loctite or something on it but, it was still pretty easy to get off. I just wrapped some tape around it and used some channel locks and it twisted right off. You can swap the emitter by just removing the bezel but, you gain some extra working room if you get that part above the ring off.

Does anyone know what the standby current is on the new RRT-01? I heard the previous version drains a full 16340 cell in 2 months.
