Looks like bezel ring should be removed like on Zebralights, pry it with tiny screwdriver. Modable anyhow

Title says “FW3A in a classic body” so I assume specs – emitter options, driver, performance, UI – are very similar to FW3A.

This design is Lumintop’s doing, so It’ll probably be a pain in the ass to open it up to flash newer firmware, or swap LEDs. They’ll probably use that one piece plastic optic, and they’ll glue it together.

I’m interested in the light, but very reluctant to work with banggood again, after they shafted me on my EDC05C order.

Would this be through banggood?

Well it’s modeled after an FW3A and is running Anduril. My guess is it has a FET driver like an FW3A. It also appears to have triple emitters like an FW3A.

I figure this new light will be a lot like an Emisar D4, but possibly a little smaller and narrower and with the output of an FW3A. Probably around 3000 lumens with XPL HI or 1800 lumens with SST20 95 CRI.

Some potential issues:

  • protruding button might be at risk of accidental activation in the pocket unless lockout is used or a washer installed around the button.
  • Bezel appears to be press-fit. This makes swapping LEDs much harder than it if was a screw-on bezel.

That’s my thinking too. Price will be a big factor for me on this one.

I agree, price will be key.

It needs to be cheaper than the D4v2 ($45), on account of the Emisar having aux lights and (I think its fair to assume) better build quality.

It also should be cheaper than the FW3A ($36 on discount) because it’s more conventional, simpler to manufacture and didn’t take years to develop.

UPDATE:
the groupbuy starts @Sept 9th 2015 with a special "launchdeal": $35.-
after Sept 20 the groupbuy price will be $39.95 (regular price is $49.95)
-> make sure to be on the list to get the price at launch!

the Bezel will NOT be glued to allow the user to change the optic or install glow gaskets to personalize the light.

electrical lockout possible!

available LEDs choice (at launch)
- nichia 219C 4000k
- XP-L HI 6500k

Anduril UI and the lumen/thow rating are identical to the FW3A

if you are interested in a optional 18350 tube vote here: https://forms.gle/dx9mTG1TNvSR2QJu8
(only if enough want to buy we might get a small run!)

Hi Martin,

Please ask Lumintop to make a screw in bezel that can at least be loosened by using a circlip plier. This would retain the looks as well as please the modders out there.
