I just ordered a VCT6 from Illumination Supply as they were out of stock over at Mountain. I orderd the D1 last night!

I am confused though. It says pre-order on Mountain website – not shipping until 9.29 but I got an email this morning saying it shipped. Are they already in stock and shipping?

Strange. I placed an order yesterday morning and have yet to receive a “shipped” email.

My Emisar D1 arrived a couple days ago. I love it! Love

I took some beamshots comparing it with two ‘pocket throwers’ that many BLF members will be familiar with.



The EagleEye X6R is the rechargeable, dual-switch variant of the EagleEye X6, which the Kronos X6 was based on. Mine has a TA driver from Lexel running Narsil. The X6R’s reflector isn’t identical to the X6, but it’s close.

The Astrolux S3 is the clone of the Kronos X5.

All three lights have XP-L HI emitters in neutral white tint.

Location 1 – D1 vs X6R

Location 1 – D1 vs S3

Location 2 – D1 vs X6R

Location 2 – D1 vs S3

To my eye, the D1 out-throws the S3, but doesn’t quite match the X6R. I think the smaller form factor more than compensates for that. Wink

When my Solarforce clip arrives, the Emisar D1 will be my new favorite pocket thrower.

I ordered mine today from Mountain Electronics and the order status says Complete, whatever that means.

@goshdogit thanks for those beamshots!

Just got an email from Mountain. Apparently some color/ led combinations are already in stock so mine was indeed sent today! I ordered the black in neutral white. 9.29 is the date where all variants will be in stock I believe.

Would like to see that too. But I doubt it can out throw a stock XPL HI 7135×8 C8. A modded FET C8 would destroy the D1. But the most important thing about the D1 is that it’s very capable for such a small light. And it can throw while still having a decent sized hotspot and useful amount of spill. I haven’t been this impressed by a pocketable thrower since nineteen ninety eight when the Undertaker threw Mankind off Hell In A Cell, and plummeted sixteen feet through an announcer’s table.

I opened up my D1 to flash ToyKeeper’s new ‘Andúril’ UI to it. I tried it on a Q8 and just had to have it on the D1 too! LOL

I removed the emitter PCB’s screws and desoldered the wires so I could push the driver out from the front like on the D4.

The screws are at a slight angle and the heads rub the inside wall. I was careful while reinstalling them.

I pushed the driver out with a bamboo skewer through the negative wire’s hole. The driver wasn’t glued, but it’s a snug fit.

The switch wires are long enough to tilt the driver to access its goodies.

Got mine today, really pleased with size, throw and UI of course

Size comparison, from lesft to right :
D1, D80, EC4, C8

D4 and D1 :

It out throws my XP-L HI D80 and equals my EC4 (dedomed XM-L2) but of course my XP-L HI FET driven C8 is far more intense.
A real pocket thrower !

I love mine so far. I got it in today from Mountain. Ordered it 3:45 Saturday and got it today in the mail box. How is that even possible? Unbelievable the output in such a small single emitter reflector flashlight. It has enough spill to be very useful and a nice even hotspot. It throws similar to my completely stock astrolux s2. It’s quite a bit smaller and has the same awesome UI as the newest version of the D4. I can’t think of a better mixed throw/some usable spill edc flashlight. If you need your edc to reach out to intermediate distances, it will be hard to beat the D1 especially for its size. Hank I love your approach to building flashlights, I think my wife hopes it will be a few weeks before you release any more!! Some kind of nonsense about buying food and gasoline. Who needs to eat when you can buy new flashlights:-)

Thank you for the pics!

Can you compare it to a Manker T01 or a Manker U11 or an EagleTac TX25C2 if you happen to have any of those 3? Would love to se a beam comparison of those, I might sell the T01 and get the Emisar as replacement!

Thanks!

Damn I just got mine today as well! Ordered Sat afternoon, received Monday?? WOW!

Bad news is battery not here yet (ordered from Illum as Mountain didn’t have VCT6 in stock). I was sure the battery would get here before the light!

Welp can’t test it out with no power BUT I can say the size is way smaller than the photos but in a good way. LOVE the palm size, build quality is superb, design is simple…

My order from Mountain Electronics is still saying “complete” since the 23rd. Does that mean it’s in stock?

That just means they received your order. I placed an order for the 3A grey version on Friday morning and just got a shipment notification about an hour ago.

Thanks Smile I ordered it in green along with the 18350 tube. I’m pretty excited about it.

Nice! I wanted the green one with the 3A but it was unfortunately unavailable so I went with grey. Your order will say shipped where it once said complete once it has been shipped. I too am pretty excited about it Smile

I’m going to be using an Aspire 1100mAh 18350 with it. I’ve got 4 in stock ready for action.

Nice! I also have 5 of those batteries. They work amazingly well with the Emisar D4. I’d imagine that with the lower amperage draw of the D1 compared to the D4 that they’d work the same as an 18650 in it.

I’m back to report that the Solarforce L2-PC-2 pocket clip that others have recommended works great on the D1!

I spent a few minutes removing the lanyard clip and enlarging the hole to slip past the tail threads. I used a Dremel with a small sanding drum and cooled the clip periodically with a damp rag.

To make up for the gap created by the clip, I formed a piece of 14 AWG copper wire into a circle, flattened it, and fit it into the tailcap.

I removed the tail o-ring, slid the clip on, then replaced the o-ring. Seems like it would still keep water out.

The tailcap tightens down snugly and still allows the clip to rotate with a little effort. I’m very pleased with the fit.

I got two of the clips from Amazon for about $16 shipped.

Mine both have the SOLARFORCE logo etched on them. Others have mentioned they got blank ones.

Sounds great. I’ll probaly order a D4 once I’m happy with the D1. I’m pretty sure I’ll be happy from what I’ve been reading.
