Any date when this new YLP Gekko 1.0 (Samsung LH351D 4000К 90CRI) flashlight will be available to buy internationally?

Oooh that’s pretty. Is there a webpage with specs/UI? I didn’t see it on YLP’s site.

. We have been repeatedly asked to release a pro version of the budget Enot LH-500 headband, as well as a headband version of the Unicorn 1.0 popular on the forum. We decided to combine these wishes into one model, and are pleased to present our new YLP Gekko 1.0 headlamp LED Samsung LH351D 4000K 90CRI; Universal near-medium TIR optics; Brightness stabilization; Intelligent thermal control; Customizable control with discrete or smooth adjustment; Three-level indication of the battery status in the button; Improved head mount. The driver was developed by a forum member INFERION , based on the Unicorn 1.0 flashlight driver

… It provides both simple, reliable out-of-the-box functionality – for those who don’t want to customize anything – and deep customization for advanced users. YLP Gekko is expected to go on sale at the end of the year

Thanks fnksb great price.
Ordered the Gryphon G180 (I think ) invoice email from ylp arrived in rubles with no payment method- perhaps a further invoice will arrive later? I have queried it with them.

The payment page should open automatically on the YLP web-page after you completed your order and press “continue”, allowing you to pay by Paypal

If this had not happened, and you had not paid anything yet, just try to make an order once more.

Hi fnksb!

How is the YLP double 21700 quadro-torch project doing?

Thank you, fnksb, for the notification about the discount! Not really interested in that light, though. Waiting for the release of the Gekko 1.0 – I hope Inferion finishes the firmware quickly and the production starts early so that I can use it already this season (is October or early November feasible?).

This Gekko headlamp looks great, looks compact and light, very Zebralight like.

based on the Unicorn 1.0 flashlight driver

I welcome the Unicorn UI, but they need to have a lower low, the 3 lumen minimum on the Unicorn is too high, and this is even more important for a headlamp, I hope they can add a sublumen moonlight.

Will Gekko 1.0 have a reflector option instead of beaded TIR ?

As far as I have understood the new driver for the Gekko allows very low output with “0.000… lm”. It will also have a slightly more advanced UI with more features and adjustments. And it will be compatible with the Unicorn (but I don’t think they’ll sell them separately and it is not simple to swap the driver).

Do you mean Gekko? Yep, linear driver without PWM is one of the best solutions for this type of lights (the ones which use a 3V-LED and a 18650 battery) Thumbs Up

Linear drivers aren’t that bad in terms of efficiency. Depends a lot on power and battery voltage. 3V LED would require a complex buck-boost driver. Or a different LED with higher Vf and only a boost driver.

Yes, but the question is how much energy will be lost in the buck-boost converter itself…

The buck-driver will give us advantages at low and medium currents, but will lose at high and very low currents. Buck is a good solution for 3-4 LEDs and 1*18650, maybe… Not for one 3V-LED.
Boost will give advantages at very high currents with an empty battery – but with the empty battery the brightness lowers anyway…
Buck-boosts are good, but they usually require more energy on their own.

LUME1 FW3X FOR FW3A 24,95$ + fw3a (35-40$). 3 LED. TRIPLE. Unicorn 1.0 – 37$. 1 LED. These are completely different lights

And the Lume1 increases the cost significantly. For 5-10 % in efficiency.

As to Lume1 project, I’m actually very interested in it, and find it very promising, especially for the high-current throwers. Thumbs Up We are looking forward to testing Lume1 in comparison with other drivers.

But this topic is about latest offers and new lights by YLP, while there are other topics to discuss driver efficiency issues.

“where you have been banned for regular flaming and hate speech”+for direct insults to forum participants ≠ don’t like “efficient” linear driver.

The Gekko looks good. The Unicorn looks good too. I’d like to get both, to show appreciation for Inferion. Beer

Usually ~3 weeks, but this summer many flights were canceled… It disrupted mail services.
Some packages which had been sent in April/May arrived only in September… Now I hope that there won’t be such long delays.

It concerns all international deliveries, not only from Russia. Sad

Received my G180 yesterday. Order placed on 29/08. Less than two weeks for delivery, not bad at all! Very pleased
