It says "current drawn" ~ 200mA.  I am not sure if it is listing battery or led current.  If it is battery current, I don't think it will get 80 lumens out in the front with more than 3 hours of runtime from AAA eneloop.  If it DOES do that, I want one!

Please clarify.

It's the LED current drawn.

Screw off the tail part to install the cell, the maching is very precise, so it looks like one piece.

It can be shipped next Monday!

Thanks

I am in for one AA/14500 light; possibly two.

I doubt the AAA will take 10440s, but if it does, I'm probably in for one of those as will.

3. upgraded to R5/R4 led

Thanks

The revised version sounds promising, as long as it manages to be useful for both battery types (some AA/14500 flashlights are extremely dim with AA).

What are the flashlight's dimensions?

The AA sounds nice. A few requests:

1. If you are going to use current regulation, that means that you can achieve an extremely low low mode without flickering PWM problems. Could you please make the lowest mode about 0.2 lumens?

2. Pocket clip please! Even if it's a removable snap-on clip it would still be nice. I suspect that at least 70% of us here would really like a clip.

Thanks!

Everything so far is just soo right!

Just a couple more things and you have a sale! I trying to not buy any more, but might get just one more....

  1. low low mode, no more than 1 lumen.
  2. NO pwm flicker please (i.e. faster PWM frequency!)
  3. Neutral tint! mmm tasty....
(our admin reminded me of a couple more things that I really don't like/want to see fixed)

Hopefully Ric will eliminate the root of the problem. "Current regulation" is a different way of changing brightness that doesn't involve PWM at all, so there won't be any frequency.

Ric knows his stuff and I trust him to give us a good light. I only hope AA performance is good with it. Some lights with good 14500 performance stink with an AA cell.

aww darn.. you're not including mode memory and it starts on low. Looks like I'm in the minority and I especially would want it on a AA light (can do without it on AAA). I'll pass. Thanks for the offer.

Nothing wrong with PWM regulation, all thats needed to keep me happy is a frequency above 0.5Khz, and a well regulated flat output current across a wide voltage range. NON-PWM, TRUE current regulation is not something that I really need, infact I don't like the green tint shift on low with true current regulation. I understand that almost all well regulated torches are not even true current regulators, just a well regulated PWM driver.

Okay, since you're doing revisions is there any way you could change the mode order to M>H>L>(UL?) if you're planning to exclude mode memory? That would be more of a compromise for everyone, imo. Also, 14500 support is definitely needed and I would certainly aim for that R5.

Ric: Will the $15 price be around for a while?  I'd like to be able to grab both this and (maybe) the AA version, if it can wait a week

Why would you assume that ?

I hate to say this about any vendor ...it sounds like you know what you're doing ..it also sounds like the box is a waste of time for most people ..offer it as an option for a buck or two extra  and spend the extra money on the light .point is not to chaet the light let the price fall where it needs to be and make the product able to deliver .

I agree with the  xpg r5/r4  emitter  .. your choices of tints have been very good . continue  it and these will be a success

It´s a good plus, but lack of it in this case for me is hardly a deal breaker Smile

Logo printing completed today.

All orders will be shipped out tomorrow.

We are making the new driver for AA version. It takes 2-3 weeks. Old driver AA version will be available for sale tomorrow.

Thanks

Good question! I can't wait for you to start orders. Put me down for the updated NW AA w/logo and a claw. Wink

Also, with the new driver and R4/R5 will the modes still be l/m/h and no memory? I hope so.

You 'da man, Ric!

Johnny
