I do like the black colour but I have one question.
Is the driver the same as in the original king?

I’m not sure about the difference in efficiencies between T6 and U2 but if they’re driven at the same current then wouldn’t the U2 be the same as the T6?

I also want to know about the driver please RIC … is it the same as the existing gold King, or improved / bumped up a little?

Cheers

+1 on driver question, please Smile

Your spec sheet says HI>LO>STROBE whereas the original King has HI>LO>OFF and Strobo is hidden, accessible holding the switch depressed with the light on.
Is it just a typo on your sheet, or driver and modes are different from original king?

Yeah, just black ano alone wouldn’t justify buying a second King. Would like a medium mode just a little more than the current low and the low replaced with a moon mode. Many have avoided buying a King because of the two mode limitation. Make it a versatile 3-mode and you will not only sell this to members that already have the original King, but you will sell plenty to those who hated the gold and/or 2 mode design.

Really hard anodized or the usual soft stuff?

I don’t care much about either color, but it needs more modes. 5 (or more) widely-spaced modes without any flashing would be perfect, but just a medium with other flash modes would be fine. My DRY is almost perfect, other than heatsinking – 4 modes all steady. I wonder if flashy modes really sell more lights? Not that I expect everyday people to be using li ion powered lights, people who would be awed by strobe.

I get no picture on the FF website in either Firefox or Safari.

Strobe in a $65 flashlight is a killer for me. I'll put up with it in an inexpensive light, but I'm with JohnnyMac on this one. This thing should have a more sophisticated UI with H-M-L. Hidden Strobe is ok, but having to cycle through an unwanted mode is a pain. Just coming out in a black color is not enough.

I paid $65USD shipped for my Sky Ray King and I would gladly have paid 10USD more for a black one. It blows every other light away in terms of value or bang for the buck IMO.

They wait for us all to settle on Gold, and then make the black so we all have to buy another one. Damn sales schemes hey? haha.

I do like the gold, but the black with free custom logo feature and U2 is pretty awesome. If it had a medium brightness or lower low and drove the U2’s a little harder this would be an easy sale for me!

Does anyone have examples of custom logos they’ve had done yet?

Thanks Ric, finally a black option! I’m assuming that the only differences from the other version are the colour, U2 bin and custom logo.
How exactly does the logo thing work? Do we just place an order then email a .ai file?

RIC

Does this use the same driver as the “original” golden version? Your advertising specs state this black version as 2500 lumen, whereas the gold version is advertised at 2000 lumen, but we all know that advertising by manufacturers is rarely accurate.

Or … are the only differences the colour and the U2 leds?

Thanks

I will ONLY buy it if you can do five modes with no blinkie!!

Candlelight, moonlight, low, medium, turbo!

And make her pull some BIG amps on turbo! Wink

If you can fit TOYSAREFORBOYS on the flashlight I’d get that, but failing that either TAFB.XXX or if you can’t fit that then just TAFB. Want a MONSTER big font, like fills the entire flat area Wink

A U2 binned XM-L is roughly 6-7% brighter than a T6 when all other things are equal. The U2 is slightly more efficient.

The xm-l’s are binned based on output at 700 mA; e.g., output for a t6 at 700 mA is 280 lm min, whereas a u2 puts out a min of 300 lm at the same current.

At least, that’s my understanding.

i.e., what cainn24 said Silly

I love my gold fandyfire. Changing the colour and upgrading to u2’s in no way inspires me to buy another one. But adding more modes? I’ve had this flashlight for about two weeks… I’d be tempted Smile

A King with U2 would be a welcome upgrade to my T6 Fandyfire version. I actually prefer the hi-Lo mode with hidden strobe.

I rather have the gold color than black, too. Although silver would be great.

I think it’s great of Ric to provide this service to us, and charge the same price as the gold version (for NW at least)
with the added bonus of a custom logo for free! Nothing to complain about really, buy one if you want/need one, if not then just pass on it.

Now if only Ric would reply to this thread, I’m sure there are many waiting for a reply before pulling the trigger!

To my understanding there's no picture at all. This is a pre-production pre-order and the actual black ones have not been produced yet, so there's nothing to take a pic of!

Oh. Ok. I assumed there were since slewflash said he likes the black color. I have a nasty habit of not reading everything.
