 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Does this Q4 led give a cool white or a warmer white? And the front glass, it is coated, or replaceable at least?

It's quite nice looking flashlight. I found some sellers on EBay, but would prefer to buy directly from a shop, better with BLF discount. Is there any specific shop you could route us to?

Nice clean design!

I would suggest the following changes:

  • Tailstand ability would be nice
  • A lower Low mode
  • No strobe
  • Pocket clip

Thanks XTAR for answering customer questions about your products.

Nice light Laughing Looks like it has SMO reflector, so... would be nice to see this light as BLF light no. 2 Cool (with R5, memory, low-med-hi modes Silly and 14500 ability)

Yeah, it's SMO reflector. I think it's a dilemma for most manufacturers when someone perfer strobe and some says no. Here is our solution:we have three kinds of flashlights (A01.B01 and TZ20) are able to DIY the modes, not from the switch but from the circuit board. Moreover, we are going to update all flashlights that are able to customized LED emitter.

I have put two videos on Youku.com to show you how it works. Hopefully you can give me some feedbacks.

Thats very interesting , Does it simply cancel a mode , or change the mode arrangement .

There have been some drivers , that allow bridging to select the modes you want to use . [ And I really liked using them ] [ Currently not available ] 

But a very nice option to offer , The video was very nice .

Hmmmm...thank you! I really enjoy that!

If you good at electric iron, it will be very easy to operate. These three kinds of flashlight can be customized LED emitter and  mode. If you guys like it, we can put the idea on samll flashlights.

It was quite easy as soon as i found BLF! Bothered alot of members with very basic questions and i got very excellent responses. If i did not went the li-ion route i would probably think that romisen RC-C8 3xAAA is the best flashlight ever made. Smile I'm glad i found a defective laptop battery and and took out the cells. Ordered a cheap li-ion charger on dx... tried the li-ion on the romisen and... here i am. Smile

You have to like the hobby and electronics knowledge helps alot. The rest is in the mileage. Curiosity is the mother of learning!

I'm stil learning and i will keep on... The knowledge base here at BLF is unbeliveable!

You have battery, lumens, luxes, runtime, tint, modding, photography, electronics, efficiency,  fetishists of all sorts! Wink If you need a sharp debate you can also go in the knives offtopic! Silly

I found WK25s on discount on EBay and ordered one for ~$17. I guess this will make a good light for my glovebox in my car.

My WK25 came just a few minutes ago and I must say it didn't dissapoint me. It has a very clean design, perfect machining and anodization. It feels quality at the moment you touch it. Even the clicky is a definite one and there are no wobbly things or rattle in this light. The light is a reverse clicky and barely tailstands. 

The brightness is on par if not better than my SkyRay S-A1 which I always found bright for a 1xAA light. The light is cooler than S-A1's but has a more definite hotspot due to its smooth reflector. There isn't a low low, but only high, mid and strobe instead. The memory seems to work ok as it could remember the last mode it was. 

So this first impression makes me wonder how their other lights are, and I can hardly hold myself against getting a WK20 also.

Hello Guys, XTAR updated the WK25's circuit board, it is able to change the modes by yourself. And the sample is available now. Any one who wants to do the first review for it pls contact Emily( info@xtarlight.com ).

Xtar-

How about getting this circuit on the WK20 and reworking it to take 16340 rechargeables? Heck, put in an XM-L while you are at it and sell it under $40 and you'd sell them like hotcakes.

I thought I might as well put my name in the hat and sent them an email. I really would like to try one of these out as I rather like the styling of it.

Awesome. Any chance you are planning an XM-L in your edc lights? An XM-L in a wk25 or wk30 would be divine.

I got WK25 with serial number 2010BB00183, it has no memory, keep switching to next mode circularly. If it get off for 5 seconds or more it will always start with High when turning it on,

is that the memory means?

or it better called reset time???

 

There is no O-ring between the plastic lens to the body, yup it's a plastic lens not a glass, and why it was stated as waterproof???? Frown
