Do you have a magnetic tail cap installed? Does it do it with the non-magnetic one as well?

Some of the talk around the issue was EM fields interfering and making magnetic tail or other small parts vibrate or resonate.

No magnetic tailcap I did not get it because I have a d4s with one to work on stuff with

I’ve done some research and it seems it’s quite commonplace wuth these lights having inductors

Has anybody had any luck putting the V2 stainless bezel on a V1 light?

I have a V1 and V2. The aluminum bezels can be easily swapped between the two. Stainless bezel threads onto the V2 easily, but won’t thread onto the V1. It goes on approx 1 turn and then stops, as if it’s the wrong thread pitch. I don’t think the threads are different though because the aluminum bezels interchange without an issue.

Are the threads trapezoidal in the V2 head and triangular in the V1 head?

That could be it. The threads do look a little different.

I have been carrying the D4V2 with raised switch ring in my front pants pocket all day long for one week now and just got my first spontaneous activation. This is much better than the V1 (with flat switch ring) that went nuclear twice in the first day. The max ramp of my V2 was set at 450 lumen so when I felt it warming up there was plenty time to notice and switch it off again.
This is what else is in the pocket:

No, this is the no-ano low-high version, it polishes itself to a nice shine having been in my pants for a few months.

Love my D4V2 it’s a fantastic light. However, I opted for the SST-20 5000k hoping for max power and throw, which it definitely delivers on high/turbo. Sadly as others have reported the tint is super green at anything less than about 80% brightness. It’s ugly.

I love the SST-20 4000k emitters in my D4S and FW3A tint-wise, though they are not quite as blisteringly bright.

Now I might just have to order another D4V2 with XPL-HI 3A emitters.

Yes, there will be copper + titanium D4V2 Ti with the switch backlight.

I want one of those in XP-L HI 3A, 3D, 4A, or 4D. I got to see a preview, and it’s really nice. Smile

The switch backlight is a good change. It must be quite difficult to assemble these though, with so many wires in such a small space.

It’ll probably weigh about the same as the titanium+copper V1 did. Both materials weigh more than aluminum.

Titanium can be made to weigh less, but only because it is stronger so the material can be thinner without sacrificing structural integrity. But when the size and shape are the same, titanium is heavier than aluminum.

Aluminum is probably more practical most of the time. So, for practical purposes, I would configure the D4v2 to be black or grey aluminum with a steel bezel and pocket clip, with XP-L HI 3A. That is my favorite version currently sold in the store.

Yes. I’m an aware of the material properties, but I didn’t realize how much material was in the light in v1 until I got ti/cu. It was the super heavy. I’ll pass on v2 of it’s basically the same weight.
