Lol! Sounds like you need to jump over to "Budget Food Forum".

Thanks for the feedback. I got one on the way. Smile Overall, the SD10 sounds about like we expected. Pretty solid. Shame about the AA holder. Hope Hank sells the X3 one seperate. I take it the light did not come with a holster? Any accessories included? A pic beside an EA4 would be great ;)

I don't have a EA4. Nothing came with it but a box,  O-Ring and a Silver lanyard.

“A couple more” carriers does sound like a good start… i like your style. Smile

jmpaul: I’m the same way… Not near enough water and food. Need to get on that! Don’t want those packaged freeze dried meal things though. Yuk

Hmm! I really like this one. FINALLY a nice looking 1D light, and it even works with 3xAA and Li-Ion.

I assume this runs ok on an alkaline D cell?  Do you think the lumen rating and output are rated on alkaline use?

What I meant was, is this light rated 200 lumens for 7.2hrs on an alkaline D cell or NiMh D cell?

Ah sorry mate. Gotcha now.

If I had to guess I would assume they used alkies purely because they are far more common. It seems like D capability is more of an added perk for emergencies with this light, rather than a main power source.

I would expect slightly less output on NiMh.

I suspect they are using alkie and the hours seem long. They might be counting the slow run down as they fade out.

I don’t want to live in a world where there are only D cells. Smile This seems to be a real ‘end times’ flashlight.

It certainly has that potential. Smile

Think it will run good with NiMh too. I don’t have any NiMh D cells, but plan to run eneloops when not running li-ions. It’s always nice to have options… the more the better!

Nice! By any chance do you have a Nitecore EA4 or a SWM D40A to compare it with?

What is the average capacity of good name brand alkaline D cells? I know you can order good LSD D cell NiMH’s with ~10,000mAh but off the shelf your lucky to find energizer 5000’s.

Because of the pretty simple UI and different cell capability I’m thinking this will be a great light to recommend to non-flashlight people so I figure they’re not gonna put much research into battery choice, what would they be better off with, ~5000mAh (rated so most likely less actual) NiMH’s or name brand alkaline’s? [forget about the one-time use vs. rechargeable aspect, what ones will be longest running?]

i had two ea4s but sold both… its about the same size – similar output to the eye as well… beam is a little less smooth looking but build quality is top notch… (aside from flimsy battery carrier)

i like it better than the nitecore personally

Have both. And D40 looks brightest, ea4 close, LD10 not so close.

What battery/batteries were you using in the LD10?

The low mode should be lower.

Well, I currently have a D40A and an SD10 on the way, and I already have the EA4W, so I’ll be doing a full review as soon as I receive it.

cant wait. i only have the ea4w, but bought it when there was no sd10 or d40a. do have the new xintd x3, but they really are not a comparison

Keeppower 26650

Glad a full review coming.

I do like the LD10 but neither of my LD10’s were as bright as the D40.

Hmm, so even on Li-Ion it’s not as bright? But I guess that stands to reason, the D40A and the EA4 are specifically designed to work with only one battery configuration and chemistry, whereas the SD10 can run on ANYTHING bigger than a button battery and smaller than a car battery, Alkaline / NiMH / Li-Ion. Smile Jack of all trades and master of none. Almost all the multiple-chemistry compatible lights I own are less bright than their single-chemistry counterparts. But even so, I think the SD10 is going to be a very useful light, I’ve been waiting for a 1xD light for ages.

It's funny that we're disappointed about the output of a light that still probably puts out over 500 lumens.  That says a lot about how far lights have come.

The low mode should be lower.
