They come in the Presentation hard cases, with 2 Alkaline batteries. I will include a dummy AA battery, in case you want to use a 14500 in the light. Direct drive, Off or On. Just a slight twist of the body, to tighten, turns the light on.

I cannot do beam shots outside tonight. It is Still Raining! YeeHaw! Fantastic!!! We need the rain so much. It has rained for 2 days straight. 5" of rain in two days! That's about the most rain we have seen all year.

Sorry, got carried away. Here's three shots inside the garage, againts my yellow walls. ISO 100, Daylight WB, Apreture F:2.7, Shutter 1 sec.

CONUS (Continental United States), just figured these would be for US members, since they are US flags.

If I make any more (probably will), they will be regular maglites, like before, those will be worldwide.

Oh, ok. That makes sense. Big Smile Once some non-CONUS ones go up can I claim on for slewflash? (Assuming I catch it on time)

You shouldnt limit any of your lights to CONUS imo. Even us picky Germans appreciate a few (very few Wink ) products made in the US. Smile

I bet some guys in the USA would even buy a Maglite with the German flag on it (scaru for example, if he doesnt read the thread and just posts "I'll take it" again).

True, but everything OL makes has been a amazing light, I still EDC the double solitaire I got from him. Big Smile 

I for one don't care what is on it as long as it works well. (A.K.A made by a skilled modder like OL, E1320, etc.)

Thank you.

It’ll make a perfect gift for my father-in-law (if I’m able to part with it J)). Besides, I’ve been itching to see one of these 219s in person.

Can’t wait!

This one’s going to be a gift for a friend that just retired from the Marines… he likes flags.

I got in the wonderful flag maglight. Justin outdid himself on this little jewel. I promptly put it through its paces on my LED analyzer http://budgetlightforum.com/node/12296).

I loaded it up with two cheap Fry’s AA cells and cranked it up. It starts out at around 70 lumens/250 mA and after 30 minutes is down to 30 lumens/100 mA. After two hours its down to 20 lumens/50 mA. At 8 hours it is at 10 lumens and around 20 mA. 24 hours later its at 5 lumens/15 mA and still shining, the power is at 40 milliwatts. It looks like that if one wants a lot of light from 2 AA’s driving a Nichia you should use lithium primaries or NiZn batteries. Alkalines discharge to below the LED Vf threshold rather quickly. A pair of NiZn cells should really crank.

The case temperature only rose around 2 degrees C.

The color temperature on the image is shown at 3500K, but this is because the 3000K room lights are on and affecting the sensor. Actual color temp was around 4600K. The color temperature only shifted around 1.2K throughout the test.

I would be curious to see what it did with a 14500 and the dummy cell. Also with a couple Duracell AA batts.

One Lithium primary would be only 3v ? and two would be way too much at 6v ?. I could see trying the NiZn, but are they still out there? I thought they were a flop?

I am surprised at how long there was any light output left at all. I would have figured much less time before it went dead completely.

I think by lithium primary he means those duracell ultra lithiums or whatever they are called. They have a voltage of around 1.8.

Fresh Energizer Lithium primary are 1.8V, but the voltage does drop under load (typically 1.5V). See http://data.energizer.com/PDFs/l91.pdf

NiZn batteries are still available. Lots are on Ebay. PowrGenix is the name supplier. Under load they start at around 1.7V and fall to around 1.5V at the end. See http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?238985-PowerGenix-NiZ...

After 48 hours on the AA alkalines it is still putting out 3 lumens!

Coming up on 60 hours… down to 2.5 lumens… The AA cells are at 2.585V and the LED is drawing 16.5 mA

Pushing 72 hours… 1.6 lumens… batteries at 2.573V… LED is drawing 14-15mA

When will it ever die?
