M4D M4X Just double checking….
Still no dimensions (size) released?

Any updates, especially about the 18350 tube? Do you think there is enough interest in it so that Lumintop will produce it?

I think the situation in Hong Kong slowed the delivery?

NO
seems to be glued behind the tailcap/spring PCB

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.

battery tube/tailcap is one part - no contact issues!
electrical lockout possible!

available LEDs choice (at launch)
- nichia 219C 4000k
- XP-L HI 6500k
- SST20 4000k

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!)

 

I would be definitely interested in the 18350 tube, but even more  into an 18500 one. Got the 18500 tube for my Emisar D4V2 and haven't swapped it since. Too bad that's one of the very few lights with 18500 cell support. Even for the Jaxman E2L you can't find an 18500 tube to buy any longer.. 

 

Other gripes I would have with the EDC18 would be  first, as others mentioned before in the thread, the side e-switch on the light.. It should be recessed, even more so now that the body is bigger and would allow for more space to play with as far as switch positioning is concerned. Second, I would take a single emitter, slightly longer version of this light at any time. And that along with a SMO reflector. I wouldn't really care about aux lights, especially if we already have a lit side switch.

Hello my dear friends!

Today i preview the Lumintop EDC18 for you - a 18650 powered sideswitch flashlight, driven by toykeepers great Anduril UI.

A reverseable deep carry clip, the tail magnet and the illuminated switch are big improvements of the FW3A idea while keeping the good points of it.

Nice video! I can see the appeal of this one. If I didn’t already have two FW3A lights already…

why is it longer than FW3A ? seems like with a side switch it could be shorter..

Joined the group buy.

I never bought the FW3A because i dont like tail switches.

Also can fit longer cells is an advantage.
