I like the UI, quite simliar to the SWM C20C and then some. Hope it has the same lockout feature as the C20C, quick click followed by a long click, same to unlock.

It’s not like the C20C at all. The UI involves head twisting which complicates operation, unlike the simplicity of the C20C.

I agree, I said quite simliar and then some. The different modes with head twisting is the then some, it is confusing.

I was pretty interested when I first saw it, but the head twisting makes the side switch just a bunch of smoke and mirrors.

I watched this vid SX25L2 I assume it’s the same UI for TX25C2 and you’re right it’s nothing like the C20C, I thought you change modes by clicking, you have to twist to change, no likey.

Looks awesome, and I want it. I am however getting tired of XML. I have an assortment of XML lights now, and to be honest, the neutral xml isn’t that great. I prefer the new XPG 2 neutral, it has a nice red tint in low modes, opposed to the green you’ll find in low modes of a neutral xml…..If only they outfitted this new light with a different LED.

i'm glad to hear that I've been wrestling with having almost never seen an xml with a decent tint ..

 

I've seen about 40 xml's  the majority of them cw ..maybe only 5 or so neutral ....never seen a neutral xml i'd ever say I loved .. Almost 100% opposite with xpg ..I seem to love them all ..i have 2 or 3 different xml tint s coming soon so don't hold me top this general hatered of them ..but we're about to possibly slam the door on funky xml leds ...

If I were offered 5 xpg neutral emitters all in different tint bins ...VS. 15 neutral xmls ...I'd take the xpg's

Sweet light. How many Christmas pressies can I legitimately buy myself?

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

There are a ton of lights I would of bought by now, but I’m a tint snob. I wish more people would demand better tint.

The XPG S2 Neutral is awesome. No one is offering it. Hopefully Eagletac will.

I was pretty interested when I first saw it, but the head twisting makes the side switch just a bunch of smoke and mirrors.

Actually I think it’s a great sounding UI and mostly because:

“Twist the head to select between four output brightness levels. You can pre-select the desired output level before turning on the flashlight.”

Knowing what output the light is on before you active it is priceless IMO and brilliant feature.

I really like that it seems to be compatible with the ET flip-up-diffuser, according to this
I think more manufacturers should offer something like this!
BUT: the modes a quite awkward: I mean, 1030-795-490-8 led lumen… Flat Stare are you kidding me?

From third pic the reflector looks like it´s going to give a ringy beam…

These would actually be some pretty cool modes :bigsmile:
…fixed it.

but seriously, I wonder why no one else is complaining, there is no medium mode like around 100 lumen, what I would use most of the time with a light like this, but three high modes ~500 – ~800 – ~1000… … this is so crucial that I dont even wanna mention the low being too high.

Yeah, they really missed out on this being a big seller because of the modes. I wouldn’t be surprised if they correct that mistake soon though.

It’s going to output better than the sc600, and hold its own against the sc600 mkII due too that smooth reflector. Of love to see a YouTube video on the UI

I’m glad I’m not the only flashlight collector out there, I was beginning to think I was strange.

Great lights, kind of lousy anodization.  My G25C2 MkII works great, but just from being my pockets, looks like it's been to a war zone.

Does anybody recommend what the cheapest fitting 3400mAh 18650 would be for the C2 here?
