Hank – you could be the one of the first to benefit from offering the LH351D led on this light – much lower price than the XPL and about the same output. In fact – output of the XPL and the price of the SST-20…..makes a big difference with 18 emitters. I know I would jump at the opportunity.

I don’t like LH351D at all in optics this small. It’s not really a mule, but it looks like a Zebralight with a frosted lens.

Having a subtle glow from aux leds peeking through the optics from under that black cap would be dope.

Maybe produce a 3× 18350 tube for 7cm length? CrazyCash I really like this golden color! Cool

Always looking for: used or damaged flashlights for repair and MODDING

Thank you for feeding my obsession!

There is much less room for aux LEDs with the individual TIR’s and holders.

I’m sure anything is possible but it may be easier to just mod some trits in the middle of that black mask. Doing like a small triangle, square/diamond, or hexagon depending on room.

I personally am not a fan of AUX Leds so prefer to pay less for one without.
I do really like glow in the dark O-rings though.

I like aux leds. Pretty. And not radioactive like Trits.

Best option is to get Anduril firmware so you can turn off the aux leds if desired.

@ScallyWag, this uses high CRI LEDs. That should be enough for you to take this light over the MT03 TA unless you want absolute highest brightness.

 

Good point. Hopefully the tint is at/below the BBL on these... Of course the XHP70.2 has its famous fried-egg beam, and I'd have to swap mosfets on the driver of the MT03. 

 

I just know with this, I'm gonna wish it was 14x Luxeon V. I'll definitely keep watching it, though.

 

Also, this is BLF. Someone was supposed to say "get both"

L6 XHP70.2 P2 4000K FET+7135 | Jaxman M8 | MF02 | Blue S2+ w/ ML Special
In-progress: Supfire M6 3xXHP50.2 | Jaxman Z1 White Flat
Others: Nitecore EC23 | Nebo Twyst | Streamlight ProTac 1AA | TerraLux LightStar 100

… It’s like a Noctigon Meteor M43 but a bit smaller, a lot brighter, and with a smooth/stepped ramping UI.

That doesn’t sound like Andúril.
Is it RampingIOS v3 or RampingIOS v4? Smile

I’m super excited about this, but would have liked it to be 21700 format.

I’m surprised to see that nobody asks about what optics the D18 use. Ok, I can not wait to tell you, that in order to maintain a smaller head, and as pocket-able as possible, we use 18 pcs single optics, and squeeze every tiny room in the head. Not a easy work for the assembly, the production speed is slow.

Nice idea! I was actually going to ask about this, but you had already answered before I saw the thread.

I would make an intelligent aux board for it, but for that I need a sample

That could be tricky due to how the optics are installed, but if it can be done, so much the better to have the option.

I’ll have what TK is having, if you can make it.
I realize it takes significant effort to find matching Vf’s for a variety of emitters.
Worth it!

LOL! Amen to that.
  • “Here is a new flashlight I made.”
  • “What flashlight should I make?”

Apparently some people can’t tell the difference between the two.

I feel like number of equivalent Q8s should be the new standard measurement.

How does this new flashlight compares with the 'competing' astrolux MF01S? It also use 14 Sst20 leds but claim 1000 more lumen! cool

 

I feel like a competition is starting to come!

 

By the way, here are my suggestion! I like the desgin a lot! I hope they will be one with 'clear anodize' finish!

Texas Ace is the one who worked on the MF01S and advised he’s not signed off on the final lumen output as he still hasn’t received the final prototype.

Astrolux pushed that out ahead of schedule to answer the D18

He’d never be able to source enough with a decent consistent bin

If I am not mistaken, the Astrolux uses batteries in Series, and the Emisar uses batteries in Parallel.
For that reason alone, I would pick the Emisar over the Astrolux.

I think the Emisar is also much smaller compared to the MF01s.
