9-9 Updated in OP. 2nd Group Buy of Lumintop SD10 (SD4A)

2015-9-9. 

Button,reflector,lens installed. Still no specs on the drivers yet.

BTY,the rubber button is made by a temporary moulding, massive production could improve much.

-----------------------------

Lumintop have changed the design a little. Name also changed to SD4A. 

Highest output can be 1,000 lumens, no more info about the driver.

2015-8-28.

--------------------------

The first batch was limited to 100pcs.  This new batch will be 200pcs (only).

Stock Version:

Lumintop page here.

Review by sb @ CPF.

Review by BLF admin.

Review by jmpaul320.

Review by vēer.

Modded by Old-Lumens.

 

My first thoughts of improvement is below, more thoughts are welcome.

1.DTP MCPCB.

2.More output driver.

3.XPL HI? or even XHP50?

4.Bigger body to fit 4*Eneloop AA well.

5.Button LED with notification of power.

6. NO THREAD GLUE.

7.Two holes on tail, if only 1 hole, the strip will make it unbalanced while tailstanding.

8.Coming.

9.Coming.

10.Coming.

I really like the design and form factor of the SD10, but the first BLF-edition had its shortcomings (no moon on eneloops and meh overall output) and however nice it looks, it is on the shelf right now. I keep an alkaline D-cell in it for when the zombie-apocalypse starts and I need a low output long runtime light.

If this new BLF-edition will do 1000+ OTF lumens on four eneloops, has moonlight on all battery types, and has the choice of a nice neutral or even 80CRI led, it may beat my D40A as my favorite 4xAA light!!!

Will figure out the moon problem.

I’d like to see this happen. I’ve got the first round Lumintop SD10 BLF-SE, but I might get this one, too.

Well spaced modes including a moonlight mode. NW or HiCRI. A holdster would be nice.

WOW!! The BLF II SD10… I’m interested too!

I have one BLF SD10 (“First Edition”)…

P.D.: Please include a holster, I’m using the one of my Nitecore EA4

That sounds fantastic. That's the only reason I sold mine. Output was good, great UI, great led tint, great F&F, but the mode gap at lower voltages on 4aa/D was a huge bummer.

I say moonlight… Neutral or warm tint… 4 (or so) well spaced modes… and the ability to run on multiple battery chemistries.

Maybe a XP-L V6 or XM-L2 U4 with 4D, 3D, 3A, 2D, 2A, 1D and 1A tint option even if it cost more?

Maybe a 26650 sleeve included for 26650 and C Cell use? If not enough room in the box for another adapter why not have only a 26650 adapter with one of these 18650 to 26650 adapters stuck in it so it will fit in the box?

"18650 to 26650" doesn't seem to work in a 32650/D tube. Gap is still there.  We provided "18650 to 32650/D" .

Most people have 18650,I think.   and it's very simple to use 26650/C. The spring will "lock" the battery, no crack.  For safer reason, piece of paper works great.

I know that English isn’t your first language so maybe you weren’t getting my meaning.

I was meaning opening the inside 18650 to 32650 adapter hole to 26650 size so it will take 26650 or C cell (make it a 26650 to 32650 adapter) and use that white plastic 18650 to 26650 adapter inside the 26650 to 32650 adapter when you want to use a 18650.

This way we can be able to use 26650 and C cell batteries too and have room inside the Lumintop box for the AA carrier, adapters and accessories. Putting the 18650 to 26650 adapter inside the 26650 adapter before it’s put inside the Lumintop box so it doesn’t take up as much space.

My “26650 to 32650 adapter” is a pair of o-rings…

But…

Just wanted more flexibility to be able to use 26650 and C cell since I consider the Lumintop SD10 the “End of the World/Zombie Holocaust” flashlight. You can scrounge up just about any standard alkaline battery to power it. I even got a 4 AAA carrier around here somewhere that fits inside a 26650 flashlight. Stick that inside a 26650 to 32650 adapter and you are in business.

An emergency light should have protection against reversing the batteries, the others didn’t, did they?

Yes – Special Edition. Wink I couldn’t remember if the Lumintop had that designation, but I know the EagleEye X6 did, and I like it! :bigsmile:

Interested Fix the problems that the first one had. Not impressed with the HXP50 ,better
the MT-G2 or a XML the driver from the DQG tiny will run a MT-G2 Lose the BLF logo
use the REYLIGHT logo Raylight Limited edition in script superimposed over a dragon? or a
Unicorn. Think about it, its time you became a custom brand.

Moonlight mode that lasts forever, well spaced modes, decent high output on Eneloops and lithium batteries, ability to run on D cell, decent regulation, PWM not visible, neutral tint.

Im interested in this light, just dont make it too expensive, lets keep it BLF :)!

I’d be interested as I didn’t partake in the first one. Think it needs to perform on li-ion though. Why else would you have such a huge light? And some descent tint. Truly don’t understand why ‘premium’ flashlights continue to only offer CW.

TBH I personally think a well driven XP-G2 would be nice. Make for a good pocket thrower.
