Hi Matt, I’ll get in on it, but I’ll have to make a final decision once the details of the driver are released. Thanks.

It all deepens on the price. If the price is right, I’m in too! But as I live in Sweden, it might blow my budget with shipping and everything…

They need to loose that delay switch. What’s wrong with these people, haven’t they seen any “Slasher Movies”? A two second delay is an eternity in a haunted house. :ghost:

It does seem like a long time when you need it.

List updated Smile

double click for on seems more logical, at least to me, and even less likely to happen when pocketed?

Yeah, that would be better, and triple click for strobe possibly?

If you triple click it goes to high, and you can skip the delay

I like my standard version a lot so depending on price I’m in. Go ahead and put my name down.

Ok, just updated the list Smile
Yeah, love mine. A 9A version for short bursts would be amazing, especially if it can run off 1 cell Smile
No more news yet though.

Cheers

One cell is very unlikely

I think there are some improvements to be made together with 9A upgrade. Why not go all in? Wink

*~9A boost mode
*Double click for on is better, like dthrckt said. Hold for boost mode and triple click for strobe would be awesome.
*Maybe XM-L2 U2 as emitter? Would give 3357-3579 lumens minus losses. :bigsmile:
*2 cells with use of extension tube would be awesome!

I bet there’s something else 8)

Sounds good to me…like the others, final price will be a consideration but for now, add my name to the list. How about using XM-L-U3’s?

if it runs on 1 cell i am for sure interested

if it runs on two – well see about the price and choice of emitter (xml2u2 would be nice or even xmlu3)

mark me down “if it runs on one cell” for now plz Smile

Would you mind keeping the wrong flashlight?
Best wish, May

Put me down 4 1 thanks – My call would be 1 battery (with a spare 2 batt tube maybe) firmer to press instant on/off button, stop the strobe coming on so easily when changing modes.

BTW thought I’d mention that I bought the JM26, a guy at work fell in love and had to have it so I sold it to him, he also wanted to buy one for his brother so I ordered two more (one for me) but the new ones I got IU was back to front L/M/H instead of original H/M/L strange?

Thanks for the interest, i thought this thread had died Smile

For those that missed it, i modded my SL3 to 9Amps after reading this thread about the JM26 and asking a few members who mod, how to go about it. http://budgetlightforum.com/node/16997

Big Smile The thought did cross my mind, but i didn’t feel my job was tidy enough to sell. I was going to buy a second SL3 to have another go at making it neater, but haven’t got round to it.

Nice part of the world your in Glenn Smile I’ve relations in Tasmania.

Cheers

Yes I love Tassie its a very safe and free place to live, we only have half a mil on the whole island – I live just out of Hobart – when are you coming to visit ;D

I have faith in you bud, I would be happy to pay you to do my light – I don’t care how it looks inside (even if the the soldering looks like chicken poo Smile

Yeah, i’ve heard great things about Tassie. I might even be tempted to emigrate there as there is no work here in Ireland. Australia/Tassie is great for Electricians at the moment i believe, not to mention the better climate Smile

If the group buy doesn’t work out, i might put my soldering skills to the test Wink

Cheers
Matt
