The K1 is designed for a 21700; it will probably work with an 18650, but may need a rare earth magnet or two stuck on the end to make it long enough for reliable contact with the springs.

It would be ideal, if Hank’s listening if the springs were long enough for the K1 to be flexible about battery types, but Emisars have typically used short, stiff springs intended for low resistance. Long springs with wire/braid bypasses solve both problems, but that’s an extra production step, and Hanks lights usually hit pretty competitive price points.

Thanks for the info. I just bought 50E flat top for my Fireflies E07 … not sure if that will work with this or not but I guess I’ll see once this bad boy is ready for sale!!

Yes, a 50E should be a good cell for the Noctigon K1. It only needs to provide about 5 Amps, so a high-capacity cell makes more sense here than a high-amp cell. Using something designed for high current will only make the driver’s regulation hardware run hotter, which may actually cause it to regulate to a lower level than a more moderate cell.

A high-amp cell might make sense for the 12V boost version, to keep the maximum output going as long as possible… but it’s probably not a good idea with the 3V linear version. That’ll just give it more extra voltage to burn off.

I’m really eager for runtime graphs of both. I’m actually torn about which I’d prefer (no, I should not get both).

You can easily get adapters/holders for 18650s to make them fit in 21700 devices as well. Many ecig/vape shops likely even have some for sale now that many devices are moving to the larger cells.

Things got delayed, but it should be out very soon if I understand correctly. I have a tracking number for hardware so I can do the final calibration on it, and then I’m guessing it’ll be available to buy almost immediately afterward.

One nice side effect of putting easy flashing pads on it is that hardware can be manufactured before the firmware is complete, and then items can simply be updated before shipping.

Yes, that’s the plan. I’m hoping to answer everyone’s questions by posting a lot of details and pictures of the new light.

Is that an auxiliary LED, or are there coloured main emitter options? Pretty awesome if an auxiliary was somehow crammed into the head.

I believe it’s red and green main emitters. That’s all…

Hank, can you please reveal some details about the color LED options already? I once posted here a link to the Osram Ostar Projection Compact LE R Q8WP (625nm) but maybe the Luminus SBT90 Red is the one we will find in the red Noctigon K1 (1.600lm red light @ 13.5A)?

Among the many things that I love about D4Sv2 there are a few minor gripes.
One is that the aux LEDs are in the optics and not on the switch. This prevents me from displaying battery status while using the light.
Yeah, the bling is nice but for me this light was meant to be a tool rather than a toy.

It’s nice to see this fixed in Noctigon K1. Smile

BTW, will there be a SBT90.2 option? I would much prefer it over Astrolux FT02 because of Anduil and flashling pads. Smile

That was fixed too in the D4V2 Ti and brass

Does the switch have RGB LED in these lights?
