Ultimate aspherical flashlight set / Uniquefire 1508

Unique copy-paste company brings us more interesting stuff:

Well it seems this will mean game over for some brand aspherical flashlight manufacturers:

38, 50, 67 & 75mm lenses,

Easy pill swapp with fingers.

Additional 18650 tube extension if someone wants to run in 2×18650 mode.

This set can cover all hunting situations and every other situations where we use flashlight + it covers all LED needs (green, red,white,IR,UV, Blue, yellow pills)

Imagine all this in fancy case and this really becomes more than just a flashlight. Smile

Price unknown.

It will be hard not to buy this set even if you are hardcore reflector flashlight fan. Smile

19.12. Edit: Guys I see that you are not familiar with this design so I will talk about this:

This is Dereelight focusing system. They copy-pasted Dereelight which is pretty expensive aspherical flashlight.

But they did not only copy pasted they also improved it.

- So now you have mono main tube without redundant parts (Bibihang from this forum is well familiar with redudant parts dereelight uses Smile ),

- Finger swappable brass pill

I don’t know yet… But if they managed to get Dereelight lenses vendor; lenses should have at least 20% more throw than older 15.. series(1503, 1504 etc.)

Derellight has much better lenses than Uniquefire and now we got to see if they use same lenses as in 15.. series or new better one.

Edit: More about focusing system: This focusing system does not have stop for fully focused beam like 15.. series have. It is normal to go in overfocus or underfocus with this system if you want. But in my experience if they really use Dereelight lenses it will probably not have very good defocus mode(flood mode). So maybe it will not be as good as real zoomie flashlight. We yet have to see that.

15.. Series of flashlights have much better flood mode + they have focus stop and faster focusing action than my Dereelight flashlights.

But anyway I would chose this dereelight system over 15.. system anytime.

Cheers!

very interested in this idea, not just for this light, but any light. Different heads, tubes, LEDs, all in a case. Could satisfy many needs. More info.

If they just released this one before all the others... I have too many aspheric zoomies already.

Nevertheless, I'm curious about the quality of the lenses.

Someone needs to take one for the team, and buy one to review. Big Smile

Looks interesting. The option of 1 mode is nice, although I would like to see it driven a little higher than 2.5amp.

NICE!!! 8) Can we have a LEGO flashlight for use with aspheric or reflector and maybe solid copper pills to swap emitters (XM-L2, XP-G2, XM-L Hi, UV, etc)

It’s nice, but sort of takes the fun and excuse out of owning multiple flashlights. Would there be a significant difference in throw with the 74mm over the 67mm?

Hi, been not around BLF for quite some time (due to some personal issues) until one of my flashaholic friends informed me about this new Uniquefire zoomie.

Yes, as what luminarium iaculator said the Xsearcher has redundant parts which is what I don’t like about them. I used to work on my friend’s Xsearcher, and the neck assembly is just ridiculous to say the least – Those who have one or at least seen one know what I’m talking about.

I have not seen the teardown of this new Uniquefire light yet, but from the pictures it looks like everything is quite straight forward, which is a good thing for modders… and did I mention that the 74mm lens is really something? I was able to mod and produce 400kcd with my 1405 (which has 66mm lens), so with this 74mm lens I believe it can easily achieve 500kcd, or even 600kcd when properly tuned.

I would like to know what is the driver diameter that the pill can accept? Hopefully it can accept something around 21mm.

I just noticed, no more ridiculous fat focus ring like the 1504/1405 has Party that was a feature i really didn’t like on the 1504.

15.. Series of flashlights are chunkier so yes this new light should be much lighter than them.

But 15.. series, especially smaller brothers are not bad either. They are real zoomies with fast focusing action with over-focus stop.

Dereelight system does not have fast focusing action, neither it has overfocus stop neither it has nice flood beam so if this new series is identical copy of Dereelight maybe it will not be for everyones taste.We will see.

I am almost sure that 17mm buck drivers will be used in default flashlights.

Yeah, I also have the feeling that they are going to use the 17mm buck driver, again. Flat Stare

But if the 1508 pill can be directly swapped with the 1405 pill then it will be not that much of an issue to me.

Friend it is completely different pill (except black retaining ring). And is brass one. Looks better than 1504 pill? Smile

 

 

I hated the fact that pills are not interchangeable with 15.. series flashlight... This one will be used in all head sizes :), and if someone have need to solder led emitter to pill will be more than happy to hear this.

So, when will this be available to regular retail customers? It would be nice to have a less expensive Dereelight type/quality light option.

Hey guys, I have been off the site for a while due to some issues. I’m already inquiring on these.

Three tomatoes are walking down the street- a poppa tomato, a momma tomato, and a little baby tomato. Baby tomato starts lagging behind. Poppa tomato gets angry, goes over to the baby tomato, and smooches him… and says, Catch up.
