1. E-cig mods have display screens for navigating settings. Why not flashlights? Put it under the rubber protector that covers the usb charging port if necessary. On my ecig mod I can scroll through power with a rocker button. Why not do variable intensity that way on a flashlight? With a screen display it would be easy to customize many features. E-cig mods do this and are still low cost.

2. Provide safety venting by having vents under the rubber button covers. If the battery starts to vent the covers are pushed aside by the escaping gas.

May be these things are already being done and I don’t know about them. I’m newly interested in flashlights because I vape so using and maintaining 18650’s. So why not have a light since I’ll always have a good battery at hand.

I desire a flashlight with a large central reflector and three smaller reflectors, so as to have both the thrower and both the flood.
Then I want a USB port to charge the battery and to program the functions.

The head shape may be triangular (as in the drawing I made, just to give an idea) or even round; but triangular, surely does not roll away.

I add with the head of the flashlight round, easier to produce

Personally, I see the value in having a light that runs on both lithium batteries and regular AA batteries. This helps appeal to more than just the lithium battery user. So, multi chemistry support.

Also, a user interface which allows instant access to the highest and lowest modes from both off and while on in any mode would be great. One way to achieve this would be to use an electronic switch where a double click or a press and hold would take you to a particular mode.

Two head choices – one regular and one “turbo head” which is larger for more throw. (Like the Solarforce turbo head…)

Use high quality anodizing.

Like many have already said, good heat management.

Don’t use “budget LEDs”. Stick with LEDs like genuine CREE or Nichia.

When making a decision during design, don’t pick looks over function.

I think it’d be cool to have a flashlight with a built in USBASP programmer. You could just plug a usb cable into the flashlight and flash a new firmware to the driver without having to mess about with SOIC clips and whatnot.

Olight S2 with high CRI neutral LED and without reverse battery inserting. Cu and SS variants would be great too.

A flashlight that can be powered by any battery. It will need some kind of mechanical mechanism to allow for different physical size batteries. Also it will need some magical electronic circuitry to detect outputs of various battery. If the battery doesn’t fit into the flashlight housing, it will have a retractable cable that will let you connect to the positive and negative terminals (polarity protected) of the external battery.

I would love to see some sk68 clone, but with 3 real modes (high-mid-low), WITHOUT STROBE. Low – something around 0,5-1 lumen. Preferably Hugsby V1 with such driver…

In general Moon mode is very important for me (but not ‘firefly’). BLF A6 has perfect for me. If more flooded beam – it could be even 2lm.

No visible PWM is a must. If I could notice PWM – light is totally disqualified.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

1) I would like to see multi-emitter lights. I don’t mean just many emitters, but different ones.
ie 1x CREE as the main light but also UV and maybe a red one?
UE must be slick to make it work for a mainstream customer audience.

ps: voted in the other thread as well!
