My Choice for ano is sandblasted grey; if not, dark-wine red.

Update (January 2, 2020):

Sofirn has managed to create a working prototype. Barry told me they are very satisfied with the beam and color rendition. They have also implemented a new UI with two mode groups (L-M-H, H-M-L), changeable by 8 fast twists...

 I love this proposed selectible UI, and would like to see it eventually ported to its big brother - the C01S!

... Next step is to talk about the host color. I still vote for the wine red ano with a dark colored clip...

A wine color that one cannot confuse with a red C01S is a good choice IMHO. I also think that a dark clip (like the one that comes with the C01S) would work well.   

Lux, thanks for all your good hard work!

I’m still in for 1 light. My preference would be the “wine red” ano, but I don’t really have a problem with the other colours.

Glad to hear this is moving forward! And the new UI sounds great. Did they say if this will be implemented in future batches of the regular C01s, as well?

The odds are good that the next batch of Sofirn's C01S (with SST-20 4000K 95CRI) will be using the new UI, too. The cost increase will be around $ 0.50. Barry asked me about my opinion and I said that's a minor price increase which should be easily outweighed by the benefits customers would get, i.e. a reversible mode order and three instead of only two modes. The poll I've run here on BLF has revealed that most people favor this new UI.

That third image in your first post is hosted on https://www.taschenlampen-forum.de, and apparently you need to be logged into that taschenlampen forum to be able to see that image. I can't.

Thanks. I've changed that and linked the picture to abload.de. I hope it's visible to everyone, now.

I think that a memory of last mode is of much more interest that the order secuence H-L or L-H.

For keychain lights, two modes better than three.

IMHO.

Wine red would be fine for me, otherwise “normal” red would work as well.
mode memory is fine and preferred sequence would be L-M-H
And a sub-lumen brightness would be fine as locator in the dark, I wonder how long the battery would last in that mode…
add me for one more!

What’s the purpose, other than “Ahhh, nice deep red..” ? Smile

I have a SingFire 348 with a 660nm fake XP-E in it (and also yellow, cyan, 395nm, 365nm, Nichia blue pump (by accident…)).

It is a very nice color, but other than that…

For me I never had and always wanted a red light flashlight. I want to test the night vision out. Most out now seemed quite weak. I’m referring to keychain lights though. Anywho I’m no red led pro but I presume this light will output a good amount of red light?

It allows one to see short distances while preserving night vision.  Useful for getting around in the dark and not disturbing anyone else sleeping.

I have red diffusers for almost every light I got, but not red light without them. Well except Fenix liplight, Nitecore SRT7 and LR30 that has red leds also, but they are too big or modes start from white light etc. so they are not doing the trick. LD12 is kinda ok with diffuser too, but AAA-size seems perfect for my uses.
Im going to use this as cycling taillight and when waking up in darkness in camp or just around house. Red light and night walks are good combo too.
