I’d be willing to pay a pretty penny for one. Smile

The Wuben feels like a brick for a tube light. IMO go for the D4S Angie optics (1000x better than Carclo junk) and neck down the tube to 21700.

Optional adapters possible in the form of inserts, or swappable barrels?

Can the auxilliaries be set to very low brightness ? ie just enough to find the flashlight in darkness ?

Yes, they have a low mode… and it’s very low.

That’s the mode I use, because I think the high mode is way too bright.


I initially thought that the bright mode for the auxillaries was too bright, until I found them bright enough to help light my way to the bathroom, at night. I set lockout with bright red auxillaries so at night I can switch between Red or momentary moon. When I unlock in the morning, my auxillaries are usually in dim voltage mode.

Are you saying the light needs to be charged daily? Is it really going into low voltage alert over night?

I am sorry if I wasn’t clear. During the day when I unlock my light, I have the auxillaries set to monitor/report the state of the cell as to its charge. When I do so, I have the auxillaries in dim mode. (When the flashlight is mostly charged they are blue.)They are easy enough to see unless in bright sunlight, but then,why would you be looking at your flashlight?

One of my dreams is for Emisar to do a light with a boost driver.

Received sand, xpl 3A today and the 18350 tube.
Kind of a matte gold more than yellow/brown which is fine by me.
Aux LED’s are really nice touch. Its like a whole other mode set to play with.

Very clever blending LED’s to mix extra colors.
Even more clever is conceiving and writing software to control a chip to make all the options for a single button to control. Quite advanced from our younger days of “on/off”.

With the short tube on, pumping out turbo and having blinky lights of many colors—-feels like it’s something that a time traveler left behind.

Truly a minor milestone in flashlight tech.

They really crammed in as much novelty, utility and features as that little package could hold!

Great job TK and Emisar!

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...

Really nice crafted. the print of D4V2 on the talicap is perfect placed..
Need to explore all features..

Great Job, Emisar and Toykeeper.. Cool

I wish it had the clip that the zebralight has. I am thinking about picking one up, but the idea of a pop on/off clip just hurts.

Most Zebralights use a friction clip too…

The smaller zebralights like the SC60 series and SC50 series all use screwed on clips. Only some of the larger ones like the SC600 series use slip on clips.

I assume he has something like an SC64w HI, which uses a screwed on clip.

The aux LEDs in high mode use more power than the main LEDs in moon mode. For what you described, you may as well just leave it on all night in moon mode. It would be brighter and would drain the battery less overnight.

The Zebralight SC52w-L2 and Zebralight SC62w both use a very secure screw on clip. I have my D4V2 now and really like it, but would accept a couple more mm in the tail cap for a screwed on deep carry clip.

There’s an unfortunate bug in first-run Emisar D4V2s sold through International Outdoors before July 19.

When put in muggle mode (6 clicks from off) and run with a partially depleted cell (about 3.8v or lower), these lights effectively enter “self destruct mode”. After approximately 15 minutes of being off they will turn on and start flashing at full power with no ramp down from the thermal sensor.

If this is an 18650 cell, the lights may overheat, which in a couple cases caused some or all of the following: (1) plastic optic melting, (2) driver wires desoldering, (3) button boot and retaining ring popping off. Probably from expansion of the aluminum head.

As a safety measure it is recommended to avoid using muggle mode if you have one of the affected lights until fixed. The fix requires a firmware update and can be done in about 1 minute without disassembling the light, but requires special hardware and software.

Just to confirm, every light ordered through International Outdoors after July 19 is safe? I’m literally about to pay for my order, and just want to double check.

He posted earlier that he is focused on getting the programming kits ready.
That may have been over in Toykeeper’s review thread.

Just joined this thread so don’t hate me (much) if this question was asked somewhere like 30 pages before…
Is 219C 5000K option 90CRI like solo emitters on Hanks site or it’s something else?

The 219C 5000K option is listed on Intl-Outdoor as 83 CRI.

I’m not sure if any other 219C versions are available. Regardless, it has a nice tint but also more heat and lower output.

anyone tried flashing their d4v2? Anyone seen or know why I get this error? A fellow BLF’s was helping out but thought I’d post here for increased d4v2 owner visibility.
