Sinner's The Cypreus Titanium Tri-EDC 80mm 18350 Series

Hi Guys,

This is my first post here at BLF and also my first review of a light since the internet started. Please forgive me if I’m off.

I received Sinner’s The Cypreus Tri-EDC 80mm 18350 Series light few days ago. I opted for titanium cause I love Titanium. The light is in 3 parts. The head has a copper pill to fit a 17mm driver & 20mm MCPCB. The tailcap switch comes in 5 parts. The black rubber boot, boot retainer ring, switch which is identical to this http://intl-outdoor.com/omten-reverse-clicky-switch-pbs101c-5-pcs-p-567...., a brass battery -ve contact and a white plastic(don’t know what material it is) retainer ring to secure the contact & switch in place. The threads are not that smooth. You can see that in the head internal threads. From the outside it looks really nice streamline which I like the most. No tailcap edges protruding. I didn’t take any photos of the innards as I was too excited.

Off to the build. I was thinking of what to do with it as soon as I received it. I have a few illumn triple parallel board & bare XP-G2. The driver I salvaged from a host Qlite Nanjg 105c at 4.5A Max. Took me 2 hours to complete. And DAMN it’s bright.

Overall it’s a great host for a pocket rocket. I love mine. I will definitely buy another one from Sinner. A triple XP-L maybe…. Smile

Thanks.

Wow great build!!!

You can even swap the driver for a BLF17DD and led for a triple XP-L (make sure it’s mounted on copper) if you want to go full hot rod. 4,000+ Lm in 80mm!!

Does it tail stand?

Welcome to BLF LightJunk!

And what a nice entrance! Nice review with lovely pictures! Smile

And it must be an extremely cool flashlight. I have a Sinner copper 18650 host still waiting for a build, but i doubt it will be as delightful as this little powerhouse!

(btw, titanium threadings are always more or less gritty, comes with the material, lubricating helps a bit)

will34,

Yes I had that driver & triple coming my way but I just couldn’t wait. It does tailstand but not stable. The boot is a hair out.

djozz,

Really cool indeed. I lubricate the threads but still gritty much less than before.

I’m having problem with the light now. It’s flickering. Hmmm…what could be the cause? The switch?

Holy smokes!

That teeny tiny light is definitely a powerhouse…throwing some lumens from something that fits in the palm of your hand!

Awesome!

The coolest looking pocket rocket ever.

Back to my flickering problem. I can hear the battery rattling inside. Not enough tension I guess. Need to lengthen the driver spring a bit.

Problem solved. I put a washer at the switch between the tab & switch body. Lengthen it by a bit.

It was something I wondered already from the pictures, with a pillar at the switch and just the stiff 105C spring for tension. You can change out the driver spring for something like this:

It has a bit better conductivity as well, but you have to bend the base a bit narrower to make it fit the solder pad (or solder it upside down).

I must admit… I’ve been very tempted by the idea of a titanium Cypreus, and/or an 80mm model. Your post is making me tempted again. I’m really happy with my copper 18650 Cypreus, but I don’t think I really need another one.

If I got one, I think it’d have to be the 18650 titanium model. It’d likely replace my Convoy S7 as my “beater” EDC light, tough enough to carry everywhere and powerful enough to do pretty much anything I need. The 18350 one has a definite size advantage, but with such a small battery capacity it wouldn’t be so great for some things. In any case, titanium plus Nichia 219B emitters would be pretty sweet. Smile

Interesting. From the pictures above, it looks like there have been some nice improvements such as waterproofing and rounded edges.

I assume you mean a ~100mm 18650 version of the 80mm model shown above? Can you still fit it into 100mm, even with the bigger pill and O-rings? My copper model is 102mm long, or about 103.5 with a SF L2 clip installed.

Pelase make a matching titanium clicky instead of using a rubber boot Smile it really adds that high end feel to it.

@djozz – I have replaced the switch to a better one. It’s more positive on the battery now. Holds it really firm.

@ToyKeeper – Yea a Triple Nichia would be nice for the host but I already have that (219A) on a Novatac 120P… :bigsmile:

@DBCstm – Thanks man.

@sinner – You’re welcome.

@Kodachrome40 – Thanks man.

A titanium clicky would be nice.

My Cypreus 80mm TRI-EDC arrived today. I chose mirror polished titanium.

It looks absolutely gorgeous … a true work of art! Love It’s much shorter than my 18650 powered 103mm TRI-EDC. Made out of titanium instead of copper, it’s also much lighter and more suitable for EDC pocket carry.

My 18650 copper tri-EDC was the prototype. As such, there might be some differences from the production model. Comparing my new 18350 host, I see a number of improvements:

  • inside edge of the bezel is cut away at a 45 degree angle to allow more light to escape.
  • o-rings for water resistance.
  • slots to allow pill to be unscrewed.

About the only improvement I would suggest from my initial impression is that the stock tailcap switch for the 18350 EDC doesn’t allow for secure tailstanding due to the protruding switchboot. I believe I can fix this myself either by using a flatter switchboot or adding an o-ring between the switchboot and the tail.

Now I just need to wait for my driver and emitter to arrive from RMM so I can assemble it! Big Smile

Lightjunk, what is the size of the PCB for your switch? 17mm or 20mm? Is it forward or reverse? Did you try a McClicky?

Did you need to add a washer?

Hi Gunga,

The PCB for the switch is 17mm. It’s a forward clicky. I tried McClicky but the tail clicky is too far out for it’s spring to have the same length as the switch I’m using.

The exact switch can be bought here http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-shipping-1288-flashlight-switch-with...PCB-board-and-spring-soldered-10-pack/1074362774.html

It’s the same as the convoy S6 switch.

I didn’t use any washer. The washer you see is just to center the switch. I have now changed it to a plastic washer.

Hope this helps.

The optics are carclo 10507 20mm diameter. It will fit but you need some modification. Check out this thread http://budgetlightforum.com/node/35789#node-35789

You can get them from mtnelectronics.com
