@Rusty Joe,

Many Thanks for the “Heads Up” on this.

I see they also do a Warm White 3000K version.

Cheers,

You forgot to mention clothes. I sold most of my clothes to fund my light collection. This is actually fine, since I only go out after dark, and most people can’t see me.
Finally, I got my priorities straight.

Looks great. Since my jaxman triple, I can’t do side switches any more. I’d love to get that 3000k model. Whos got this light for review?

Glass len, why not AR coated?, 34$ light with no AR coated is quite bad

I would rather have an option for smo reflector instead. Doesn’t these .2 versions remove the donut holes?

I just built nearly the same light, with components from them. Same body, booster driver; just a different tint: XHP50.2 J4 3A. The body had a green button though. Thought a 28mm AR lens would fit, but it’s 1-2mm too narrow of a diameter, so just running the stock glass lens right now.

Looks like a nice light. Sort of like an F13.Is this the host version?

The quoted body and head diameters are not consistent with the light in the OP, but it’s probably a mis-print. It looks like the host version comes with a smooth reflector

Is this a 12v 6v led? Either way lumins per watt doesn’t line up does it?

BanL says the light uses this driver and now has mode memory that you have to wait 3 seconds to activate.

If that’s the driver this light uses then it has next mode memory. I just built a light with the same driver and also posted info about the driver in another post.

I was just clarifying since mode memory is not the same as NEXT mode memory.

I guess I am lucky the H1-A driver I got also does have the pre-flash when you switch to low mode, but it has on-time memory with a ~3 seconds set time. I would rather have off-time memory but on-time is better than next mode memory

It should NOT have next mode memory. It’s supposed to have on time memory.

Looks like the 6 volt version since it’s designed to pull 3 amps. 2500 lumen does seem to line up with 3 amps, but I think khas actually got 2.6 amps from his homemade light with the H1-A driver. So maybe output will be closer to 2,000 lumen.

I don’t know what kind of shelf the K5 has, but hopefully it’s decent at getting the heat out.

KD also sell a 18650 sized version light using the same boost driver and emitter. It’s called the KF-8

I contacted kd, and they said the light has mode memory.
Darn, I think I would have wanted the 18650 version more. That’s what I get for my impulse buy. I should have looked around first.

Thanks for pointing out the 18650 version, it appeals to me more too. Almost ordering one….

Btw, the 2650 lumen claim for this light seems a bit optimistic, for 3A it sounds like bare led lumen, OTF I expect more like 2000.

I measured 1450 lumen on my K5 WW (3000K). A resistor mod will help Innocent

This is one of my favourite flashlights. Nice allrounder, no stepdown, compact size.
