Two Emitter Flashlight

Its interesting how the only valid combinations for number is LED emitters in flashlights is:

1—Most common
3—Used in FW3A and many others
4—Used in every quad (D4, D4S, etc.)
5+ Used in multi LED lights as in MF01, MF01S, etc

The only LED emitter quantity number that really does not work (and I think we all know why) is 2.

If mean that weird Vokka light, yeah.

A better thought out design is Boroiut D25 and WurkoH20, and while it’s technically 4 emitters IF25 works fine with just 2 (tint ramping). I know there’s many others.

does not work why?

Here are a few two LED lights I found by searching:

Fenix LD50
Sunwayman D40C
LED Lenser 880095 ×14
KLARUS-XT20
Nitecore TIP SE Dual
Nitecore TIP2
Mecarmy PS14

I meant a flashlight as in handheld. The headlamp works with two emitters because its always horizontal .

Lumintop made one too, but I have not found it yet.

You are technically correct. The implementation of those lights is weird at best as you are forced to hold the light a certain way.

I think you will agree, probably less than 0.001 of one percent of the lights out there have two emitters. Its a true odd ball.

I am not sure how they look like, but here are 2 lights with 2 leds each: Mecarmy PS14 and Amutorch AX3

There’s always that one weird Amutorch that was available as either two-emitter with reflectors, or a weird quad (spaced wide, and with aspheric lens)

You must only mean 1 special case of 2 emitters. Do you mean when there are 2 identical side by side emitters? Because there are a whole lot of lights with a pair of different emitters.

1 white and 1 aux color is pretty common. So is 1 flood and 1 throw. Often an emitters points forward while the other is an anglehead so the light can be both. Having a pair of emitters greatly increases the flexibility of the flashlight and it is pretty popular.

I meant primary not aux.

Also most of the lights mentioned are two single emitters in one unit.

I had to make this one myself. Party

See where you’re going and where you’ve been—simultaneously! And at the same time!

Yes, it works! The battery carriers are back to back and insulated from each other.

Lupine makes a couple side-by-side models. Hide your wallet.

Not space-efficient.

1 emitter, you can size the head/reflector up/down as you want.

3, 4, others, you size the head up/down, and stuff the LEDs regularly in a circle.

5 would be wasteful (quincunx shape) unless the center LED’s reflector/lens is reeeeeally small.

2 is by necessity a 2:1 rectangle. If you stick ‘em in a circular head, there’s wasted blank space above/below the side-by-side LEDs.

Unless you want to buy a 2-emitter light at the Darth Mall.

Only reasonable 2-emitter light would be with 2 cells side-by-side as well. And those are all weirdo designs, so it’s not surprising it’s rare.

So, from Algebra 101, we can conclude if A=B and B=C then A must equal C no?

Similarly , if LB taught you, then who taught LB? Its a mystery . LOL

If you go back far enough, you will find a caveman holding what seems like a flashlight. On it will read “Ever Light Bringer Edy.”

That would be two single emitter lights in one.

In a pinch, I would “palm” a headlamp, so youse can use a D25 like that.

That’s where I got my last light.

Turned it on, almost got a 2nd bellybutton.

Dr. Spork with his 1-emitter light that he got at the Darth Mall (in the Star Track Universe.)

One of the first pop can flooders, if not the first, the Niwalker MM15 2 x MT-G2, is a two emitter light. I waited until November, 2014 to latch onto it. The review by Selfbuilt mesmerized me for weeks. So many happy memories!

That brings back memories indeed!  Still got a couple of these Niwalker MM15s - one from Vinh - and successfully dedomed my first MT-GT leds with this light to give a bit more throw.

Ooh, I hadn’t seen that before but I kind of want one. I love the MTG-2, and two of them must be better than one.

Again, both are single emitter lights. 2 in 1 lights.
