Moonlight mode. Must have moonlight.

A high output budget flashlight on 4x AA batteries in series.

So no Li-ion batteries.

Example: Sunwayman D40A and Nitecore EA41, but these are expensive.

The Fandyfire Rook is also expensive, and it runs the batteries parallel (don’t want that, we want 4 AA’s in series and use a lineair driver).

Nice idea, wonder what it will become.

(triple?)XP-L HI relatively small thrower with max current rating of ~6Amp, thermally regulated, sublumen moonmode and beacon mode. Add a USB charging port, that can also be used as a backup USB charging port. To charge your cellphone for instance. With voltage indicator in any form and waterproof.

A good quality, fairly inexpensive 18650-based “zoomie”, that is, a good quality flood at one end and a good quality thrower/search light at the other end. It can be single-mode as it’s meant to be a single piece/multiple function outside nighttime flashlight that can transition from up-close needs to “what’s-going-on-way-over-there?”.

1. Zoomie
2. Infinitely variable brightness, including moonlight mode
3. Cheap, but must be using CREE or Nichia, and NOT Lattice Bright LED

Glow in the dark portion of the body option that can be turned on/off. Doesn’t have to be too bright just bright enough to find the flashlight at night.

Tiny 18650 flashlights with the option to convert into headlamp if needed

First recommendation:
Any budget light that does NOT have a LatticeBright emitter! These junk LEDs have become the bane of the budget flashlight world.

Second recommendation:
Single-AA/14500 operation
Smooth body but with good knurling
No crenelations or sharp edges
Quality anodizing, possibly in an array of colors
Deep-Carry pocket-clip
Genuine Cree XP-G2 emitter (my personal preference is for cooler tint)
Light-OP reflector
Regulated Three-mode Lo-Mid-High no-strobe/SOS driver
Tailcap clicky.

Keepin’ the “B” in BLF

Copper mcpcb, integrated shelf thick enough to handle heat, direct driven xp-l Hi with a primary clicky switch in the rear and a secondary momentary switch for changing the 4 modes from moonlight to turbo with a hidden strobe mode.

- omnivore: usable with 1*26650 and 1*18650 and 3*AA in series, so it comes with two sleeves and one adapter
- possibility of extension tube for 1*26650 or 1*18650 for extra runtime
- zoomable with aspheric lens + possible TIR collimator
- infinitely variable brightness going all the way down to moon
- temperature controlled ramping on turbo
- hidden menu for strobe, beacon and SOS
- backlit buttons (on/off switchable)
- a keyfinder like locator function with bluetooth connection to smartphone
- and for the ladies: silicone tube covers with a lot of fashionable colors (also nice for guys who hate cold and slippery aluminum tubes)

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Personally I have little use for any flashing options in most of my lights, I just want high, medium, and low settings. I’m on the copper mcpcb bandwagon.

I think there is interest in a soup can light with heat sinking built in and a xpl hi triple or nichia 219 b or c. Especially in some new colors.

More options for lights to have XP-L HI and more options for modes. For me this would be the option to eliminate next-mode memory.

A budget single AA/14500 “L shape” headlamp. Something like Skilhunt H15 but lighter and cheaper. There are not many lights like that.

Must have moonlight.

Something that can be used with AA’s or Li-ions.

Ability with a shortened tube (included) to be used with CR123a yet still look sexy, not just stumpy.


Raw, rough, tarnishable finishes, be they steel, aluminium, copper, brass with metallic switches to suit (or even contrasting switches, for example steel body, copper switch)

Oversizing – at least in terms of large and mega deep canyon-like knurling, super-big lanyard hole that would take 550 paracord, oversized head and (removable) bezel with smooth and crenelated varieties included in the box.

Omni-use clips. Reverse mountable so they offer complete deep carry either head up or head down. Easy cap-peak fitting if that floats your boat. Make sure there is an equivalent clip (or the flashlight is so engineered) that the same Omni-use abilities are present when using a shortened tube.

- Magnet in tailcap

- Moonlight

- Can stand on the tail.

- Compatible AA

- Recessed switch so the flashlight doesn’t turn on in a pocket or a bag.

- Light (that would exclude things like copper, etc…)

- clip

A series of flashlights / hosts with interchangeable heads and bodies.

Bodies with different sized cells: 16340, 18350, 14500, 18650, 2xAA, usb recharge port, tail magnet.
Heads: single emitter, triple emitter, floody, thrower, zoomie, cool tints, warm tints, crenelated, reflector, TIR optic

Any head can be screwed on to any body. I would buy so many. Gotta catch ‘em all!

Improved srk style light with removable carry handle, moonlight and ramping, 2s2p 18650 with tail end battery replacement, square threads, thick integrated shelf, extended external cooling fins, longer head, deep op reflector, and xhp-70 emitter on a copper dtp mcpcb with options of warm, neutral, or cool white.
