Will the added lanyard hole be less sharp-edged than the one on the D4S?
This is the only thing I don’t like on that light….

They are not a regular use mode. Anduril lets you set two different modes for the AUX LEDs: one for power off and one for lockout. Each can be set to off, low, high, or blinking.

It is also fairly easy to change the modes, so you can reconfigure them as needed.

You should make the SS bezel As standard and not as option!

Is there somewhere a comparison between the FET and the 7135 efficiency? (for different power levels)
Or can someone just write some general numbers?

In TK’s D4 (V1) review, runtime at the ~150lm highest regulated level was estimated at around 8 hours. I’m assuming this was with a 3000mAh cell, but it possibly could have been with a 3500mAh instead. My memory does not include all the minor details.

Why do that and remove the option for color matched, cheaper aluminum ones for those that prefer it?

Ordered one! Looks like the next month or two will be great with both the D4v2 and the FW3A both coming in around the same time!

Please post a short video of how the AUX LED’s light up, dim, change colors, rainbow, voltage…

I’m sure many will be thrilled!

Thank you!

When I'm spending mony foolishly, I like to do it wi$ely...

I have all the flashlights I need, but not as many as I want...

Thumbs Up
I agree, the only thing that lets the D18 down is that shiny bezel ( and the thermal regulation that’s a bit wonky)

I’m thinking about getting an led in the 5000k tint for the D4v2. Is the SST-20 5000k a similar tint to the XPL-Hi in lower levels? Or is it a sickly green. Sick I might pay the extra 10 dollars if that means I can avoid a greenish led!

Yep. I prefer to not have a stainless bezel. It is great to have as a extra cost option for those who do want one, but not as an included extra cost for those who don’t.

Right there with you. I’m hoping for a bright cyan like the D4v1, although I might be interested in other colours as well.

• I ordered mine this morning and just assumed it came with the SS bezel, I misread it. If I read correctly I would have ordered the SS bezel. But going back and looking at it again, I think I prefer the regular aluminum Smile Saved myself a couple of dollars. Those dollars will soon be used to buy upcoming lights:

Does anyone know the tint bin of the SST20s? I know the most common 4000k is the greenish.

Looks like there’s a fair amount of interest for other colours. I’m getting way ahead of things, but Hank, any exciting colours coming up that we should keep our eyes peeled for? Any suggestions of colours you are considering?

Why does the site state ‘ship before end of june’? It doesn’t seem like a limited run? Awesome upgrades either way! Love it!

I wonder if it’s possible to get a mixed tint SST20 (1 each of SST20-3000k/4000k/5000k/6500k) and if that would have any advantage?

Also any info on the quiescent current (standby/parasitic drain) for the Aux-LEDs?

Unless they run out early. I got my order in tonight; not taking chances. Figured the sooner I order, the sooner in the queue mine will be shipped. That sand color is irresistible.

Hank are you have any plan for 21700 in your product ?
Yes, sure, it’s under developing.

Please let this one have a FET+6+1 driver or something in that range?

It’s still FET+1×7135 driver

That’s a deal breaker for me.


Don’t worry, the 3-channel driver is nice but also overrated. Sure it is a nice thought to have it in your light, but the slight efficiency gain you get in medium modes will not be noticable in your runtimes.

It’s not really about runtimes for me, it’s about constant brightness output. I did notice it on my other FET+1 lights and it just annoys me. Will Anduril compensate the voltage dropping the whole time and increase current to maintain for example, 300 or 400 lumens?

I see, in that case a 3 channel driver will do that over a wider output range. Still I think only few people will notice the gradual output drop on medium modes, let alone be bothered with it.

True…. But, some people don’t care about high CRI, only a good tint. Just imagine your car losing power as the fuel goes from full to 3/4 of a tank fuel. Anyway, im gonna attempt installing a FET+7+1 driver in my D4. A button top cell and a 1mm copper spacer on the tube should work.

only 3 colors? would be nicer if they offered same body colors as aux colors. Already have a grey d4s and green d4, neither black or the sand are exciting to make a purchase really.. atleast give option blue and green like on the original d4, wasnt those the colors that sold out first?

Does the sst20 throw more than xpl hi? Surprised the xpl hi only 100 lumens more.

The aux LEDs turn on during “off” and “lockout” modes. They are off in other modes, like when the main LEDs are on.
