I am interested in 2 depending on the price. And please also post in the LT1 thread that the LT1M project has started, I only found out because of the video.

As for the lantern itself I’m still not sure if that tall and narrow design is stable enough to use the lantern in a tent or on a camping table and would have liked a design closer to the Zanflare T1 or Fenix CL25r better, but I understand that it is much faster and easier to modify an existing flashlight than to design a new lantern from the ground up.

The Zanflare or CL25 are still to “fat” to be really a backpacker or pocket size lantern. The LT1 Mini will come with a wide removable base, (either plastic cap-type or metal magnetic cap, or a folding base stand.

In the video DBSAR talked about being able to use the tail magnet to stick it to a thin metal base plate that is large enough to make it stable. You could potentially keep this plate anywhere since it is thin..unlike having something like a cl25r which is very fat even though it only has 1 cell as well. I kinda like the idea of a skinny lantern with a separate base plate.

It would be great if the LT1M would have a folding stand (in addition to the base magnet) that folds around the battery barrel and opens like an umbrella. This constuction could look somewhat like the landing legs of the spaceX rockets.

That idea has been an option to test for a base style. Thumbs Up

Bought a light for scuba diving once. Do LED's contain nicotine?

The SpaceX style mechanism looks really nice,
I think it is even better to use three legs instead of four.
Should make it less wobbly on uneven grounds.

Thumbs Up This is definitely the logical solution if it comes with a magnet ……. Legs are just plain stupid….. sorry, JMO. Beer Beer

My preference would be to just have the magnet. Unless the legs are very stout my guess is that they would be somewhat unstable especially on uneven surfaces. Plus the additional cost of adding them to the body of the light.

I was already in for one. Please add another for me.

 

Many thanks for all the work developing it. It is probably much more work than most people would imagine.
