Yes, those, although the E07 also fits a 21700.

 Buying a light  solely on the highest output number is like buying a car the goes the fastest .

 That might mean it has no suspension or can't go around a corner or has horrible brakes .No radio , stupid design , ugly shape uncomfortable seats,loud and no resale value .

 The inverse square law clearly states that for a light to appear twice as bright it needs to increase output by four times . So what might look like a brighter light on paper probably will never be seen visually .

If you put Luxeon V in an E07, probably that would win. My D4 is brighter than the stock E07s

So I have a D4S with 4000k 95cri sst 20 leds and the tint is the best I’ve ever seen or had, but on the d4v2 im about to order sst 20 5000k leds as I can’t justify 10 dollars for a hundred lumen gain.

Anyone have input on the sst 20 5000k tint?
