What is the lanyard ring that’s used on the D4 in this pic from the review?

That’s a Solarforce pocket clip, the clip is on the other side.

Fine tuned the battery crusher, 1438.65 lumens on the XP-L W2 2B sliced.

The H2-C boost driver is probably way too thick. The driver cavity on a D4 is pretty shallow, with virtually no extra room beyond the clearance needed by the attiny85.

About the lanyard ring, it’s part of a SolarForce L2 clip. It’s the best clip solution I’ve found so far, but it doesn’t work without modifications. The inner diameter needs to be expanded, and the tailcap needs a washer to fill the gap created by the clip ring.

These technically can work on the D1 or D1S, but it’s awkward due to the head being wider. The D1S in particular has a pretty small gap for fabric to fit into. But it works reasonably well on a D4:

Thanks for the reply. What I'll do is use a Solarforce L2 lanyard ring (no clip).

D1vn with sst40, really impressed with this light and dare i say, actually prefer it to the xpl HI 5000k. My preference will usually always be 5000k over say 6000-6500k. Certainly for flood bias lights. However in thrower bias, its not a must for me. The beam is pretty much white, have to really inpsect for any rings. In use, its a very nice beam, huge hot spot(at a guess its about 2/3rds larger over the xpl HI. Spill is brighter, in fact its that bright it makes it even more useful for me.


The sst40 is great in the D1, would also be nice for some additional 4000k and 5000k flavours Thumbs Up

My Solarforce Skyline I has a crazy deep reflector, I’m actually considering pulling the reflector and building a head for the D1 to hold it. I gotta have it really bad, need help. . . .

Seriously, it’s crazy! 38.3 opening at the top, 56.1mm deep!

Your normal, you are always aspiring to improve and better……………….nothing wrong with that and having the skills to do it. Imagine a few years back, someone suggesting a bit of plastic, some type of screen and talking /sharing pics around the world with other people via something called the web!……………that is crazy! Crazy today, the norm tomorrow Smile

How does the heat compare to stock? Should be more efficient here.

Will have to check fischju, I did not notice much different ,but I was not paying attention tbh. When I was using it last night, my uses were all pretty short and it never got hot, just warm. I would expect up to a couple of mins (depending on ambient temp) at max output. After a few uses at 100%, I dialed it down quite a bit and was more than sufficient with no heat issues. TK made a great point (might have been the D4 thread). Where as with the D4 or other floody lights, you don’t need to ramp these up anywhere near to see more due to the reflector over optics. So where other lights I need it ramped up(D4 or other optic types), this for most of my uses is set lower if makes sense. But damn that double click to 100%, that is very addictive! Smile

Thrunite has that for years, I wonder why all vendors don’t do it, it’s so logical.

I don’t know when the D1S will be available or exactly what the price will be, but I’ve heard rumors that it could be this week (because Neal already has some, I think) and that the price may be either the same as the D1 or slightly higher. I haven’t heard anything official though. It’s just speculation, as far as I can tell.

Yes, I am use to double click for turbo, many of my lights have it. However for me, the size and how the switch just sits at my thumb waiting to be pressed……makes it easier than normal for me! The UI is a master piece …………simple to operate yet rich in features…..genius Smile Guess I am trying to say, the D1 and D4 make it almost impossible to use without at least one double click Big Smile

I see there’s a 3rd emitter option for the D1 now for fans of the warmer tints: XP-L HI V2 5D, 4000K

From their China site. I believe Hank will list them on their site by this week. Price is the same as D4 and D1!!! Available in grey and black colors, and 3 tint options like what other members have mentioned.

Crying Something else colors in the future? Cyan, green, sand, gold? Could you ask them? E.g. I’d pay for them + money for those.

Interesting to see whether or not the D1S out throws something like the UT02 or the NC P30?

We should get sushi Carol

Considering TK says her throw number could be low it’s a safe bet it beats the P30. Against the UT02 will probably want to compare beamshots and everything since it’s a different emitter and battery so not really a 1:1 comparison.

My lux measurements always seem a bit low compared to everyone else’s. Also, my D1S has a slightly off-center emitter that I haven’t fixed yet, and it might cause a small drop in lux. I think the official spec is 130 kcd.
