I replaced the black switch with a blue one to match the blue ring. Now the aesthetics are much better. Cool

I would like side switch fc12 too. The tailswitch makes the light too long. Also hope will have 21700 version too

I’m fine with reflector or optic, but reverse charging is something I would never use, so I wouldn’t like paying for it. a 3,500 mAh cell is not enough to charge a modern phone.

I think all we were asking for is a FC12 with the ability to run solely with the side switch and no tail switch in in order to make it shorter. It doesn’t need any other upgrade.

I would also welcome the FC11 in that purple, or the other colors of the pictured prototypes.

Now you can order on wurkkos store.

Need an under 100mm long 18650 EDC. Sofirn and Wurkos have got the market covered except for that.

I agree that the tir optic could be interesting on the proposed fc12s. But I don’t think it’s necessary.

For me the appeal of this light is that it would be a throwy version of my current favourite EDC the sofirn sc31pro.

My assumption would be that a reflector would get the most throw out of the sft40 led.

Probably still interested either way.

TIR optic is great idea.
Then it is better also to offer sst40 5000K.

Thank you!

I would HIGHLY recommend putting that information on your product page, as well as amazon listings.

It is great that the FC12 supports C-C charging, and you will definitely sell more if you tell people it does!

C to C charging is a feature a lot of people want, but VERY few flashlights are clear that they have it.

Edit: LOVE my FC12 by the way! Purple looks great, performance is awesome, and UI is very good. Love the mechanical tailswitch!

Got my purple FC12 today.

Build quality and performance wise this is a great deal at under $30 battery included. I don’t know how it’s done but you can charge it without engaging the tail switch, which makes the integrated charging so much more convenient. I’m actually ok with the length, thought it would be longer.

However, the UI is seriously flawed:

-In ramping mode single click does nothing, would be nice if you could use it to enter standby off with the side switch lit up.

-In contrast, in stepped mode holding the e switch does nothing.

-Double click only enters turbo, but can’t double click again to return to previous mode, instead you need to single click.

-Turbo is not memorized in stepped mode, rendering this quite useless as a tactical light with the forward switch. It ramps too fast in the lower modes but I’m forced to use it anyways because it’s the only way to memorize turbo.

The FC12 has amazing potential to be used as a dual switch light, it just needs a few tweaks on the UI. I wish there could be a standby mode where the tail switch is engaged and the light can remain in standby mode ready to be used with the side switch.

I don’t have a preference either way about standby mode. It would be nice to have for those that want it.

But turbo NEEDS to be in the main stepped mode group, so it can be easily put into memory.

As will34 mentions, this light is not very useful as a tactical light, as the only way to memorize turbo is to use smooth ramp, ramp all the way to turbo, then turn the light off.

Also, by the way, smooth ramp is WAY too slow.

I prefer stepped ramp anyway, but I am forced to use smooth ramp if I want to be able to memorize turbo.

Still. I love this little light. I don’t think it’s too long at all, it’s very similar length to a lot of lights in its class.

I LOVE the PURPLE!!!

I think its possible for Wurkkos to implement Sofirn C8F-21700 ui; it can memorized Turbo while in stepped mode,(off via TS while turbo is engaged)…

And for the side switch version its good if manufacturer can implement anduril/narsil type ui and Sofirn SP35-21700 type of ui for more utilitarian use. just my 2cents,Cheers

..you'll see perpetual change..

This is honestly the most interesting color in a long time, maybe ever. Now we need it for the sp10 pro

Definitely. Some asked me a ways back if he could buy it from me, and I said nuh-uh. Think it was because of the color, not the light itself.
