freeme, any news from Lumintop about using the SFT40 in lights like the FW21 ( X4L ? ) or GT mini?

I’d really love to see an 18650 light from them using the GT micro reflector!

And another thing which was discussed and then dropped long ago was something like a FW421.. or basically a 21700 version of the FW4A. The now discontinued FW21 triple never made much sense and always looked awkward. Getting rid of the trit slots and making it a quad would really be a hot seller in my opinion. It’d be like a 21700 KR4, which is something many are hoping for.

Overall, I think it’d be wise for Lumintop to reverse their battery sizing trend. (bigger cell, smaller head/LEDs) A 10440 triple is soooo silly, I think.

Freeme, have you heard anything about the reintroduction of the ODL20C or some similar thrower?  I've been trying for months to get a replacement driver for the original with the XHP35Hi - they sent me the wrong driver and it's been email tag with long delays since then (don't think they're willing to replace with a different light...).  Last message the guy encouraged me to wait a bit because they were reintroducing that thrower with a different emitter...soon, he said.  Curious what they've got planned (and if the host is the same).

My thought exactly, I was thinking of flashlight with head of the GT Nano and 16340 battery could be really compact thrower

If compact enought, I’d be in Innocent

I believe it should be smaller than Wuben E6, with a bit ticker battery tube.

freeme, are there any news about the FW1AA flashlight release?

I sent Neal an e-mail around a week or two without reply, yet (some of my previous mails went to his spam folder).
If you have any information, please let us know. Thumbs Up

Maybe, but that is not related to the FW1AA, just with the “original” design, namely the FW3A/FW1A.
So I expect the FW1AA to be out, without relation to the FW3A

I’m sure it will but the comments on quality and disappointing outcome of the relationship effects my opinion of Lumintop. I won’t by buying FW1A.

They are related in that they both come from the same company and are presumably affected by the same decision making processes. So the FW1AA’s history gives an unpromising prognosis for the FW3A.

I’ve never heard of a flashlight with a controlled bill of materials (BOM) but maybe it is time for that.

Hum, I understand what you say! That info on the FW3A is surely disappointing, specially for people that would like to have the “regular” FW3A/FW1A. I bought mine from the first and second batches, and despite all, I’m happy with those Wink

I do hope that the FW1AA comes in similar shape as the FWAAs I got, though.

Hum, the drivers are different, the FW is different, so I am not sure if they will change much from the FWAA to the FW1AA, at least not in the 1st batch of the last one. Maybe later they will do that, and maybe it will take the route of the FW3A.

It would not be nice if they adopted something similar to the new FW3A on the upcoming FW1AA, but I hope they don’t do that.

We can also remember that the FW3A and the following family (14500s not included) had several variations and changes, so maybe that was what led to the decisions made (reaching a wider public with different types of uses). Still, it is not pleasant to know what was posted on the other thread.

This said, I hope the FW1AA sees the “night” light soon…and in similar shape and functions and specs as the FWAA. Thumbs Up

Really wish they had a different emitter on the FW1AA. Sad
