I think I read it will have a fixed battery tube like Q8 instead of carrier?

It will be more than 9-leds and no battery carrier. My biggest gripe with V1 was the inconvenient battery carrier and the compression foam losing resilience over time causing less pressure against electrical contact and significantly dropping lumens. These will all be fixed.

It looks like more details are up on the Fireflies website

12 LEDs with lumens from 7000 up to 18000. The relevant bits:

No SST-20 4000K? I guess he hasn’t be able to source the depleting FA3/FD2 tint bins because Mateminco and Lumintop bought the remaining limited supply for the MF01S and FW3A.

Don’t think 12x XP-L HI v3 5000K can do 14000 lumens with 3 cells because even in the D18, I only got 12+K lumens with the 18 XP-L HI 5D v2.

Wonder which osram emitters they’re using. I’m all for only 12 emitters using larger optics than 18 emitters using smaller optics.

I really hope they will be reintroducing a new PL47 V2 with SST-20s 4000k.

Hopefully Jacky would share us some pictures of the new rot66 before sale starts.
Also,maybe some floodier optic as an option.

Hoping they stay with the stainless steel tailcap for gen2 as well. It’s one of the reasons why I like the original ROT66. SS tailcap and bezel + ha3 7075 aluminum makes it a brick.

The12 x Osram 15W CW emitters 18000lumens emitters were dropped as options as they put out too much heat and would be more costly.

It’s true. This emitter has very good throw performance on ROT66 G2, but the heat rise up so quick in 20 seconds.

We will post final test result soon.

But they’re very low forward voltage so they probably perform exceptionally well at lower outputs, and retain that throw performance even still.

I think it would be cool to offer them.

Yes. At lower levels it’s just great

Even if Fireflies doesn’t offer them stock I’ll probably just get them modded into the host regardless.

I assume the Osram emitter Fireflies was talking about is the KW CSLPM1.TG?

Fireflies – is there a way to dim the aux LEDs, and/or turn them off?

When will the the special “interested” price be released? Now that it is available at ff . com ?

The Osram emitter premium is pricey, anyone know what the single emitter price parity is compared to something like the XPL Hi or 219Bs? Does the extra $30 make sense? I’m a newbie to the /Flashlights, but quickly becoming a hoarder.

I’ve got the Emisar DV and DVS, FF Eos7 (favorite), and Sofirn Sp33 v2 with 50.2 emitter.

I’m also assuming the Osram has much more candela compared to others, and that being the case, the 15° TIR optics will be an especially long thrower? Does this also mean the extra 45° TIR optic that’s included with the flashlight will enable a more floody+throwy Osram emitter when it is used?

Thanks in advance for any info on my questions.
