I went back and forth between the much higher output xpg3 and the nichia. So at this price I opted to get both. I’m not a fan of the rings and color bands of the xpg3, but outside it really doesn’t matter. I too wasn’t fully convinced from the listing that the 18650 tube wasn’t included, just that the battery wasn’t.

I don’t have any 18350 IMR cells, so what going to be good? I’m sure Mte Windyfire cells would be great, but those aren’t currently in stock. Also, it’s usually safest be to get button top since I don’t know if the light as physical polarity protection, but will flat tops work as well?

Well I ordered one but thought is was a 18650 flashlight. Not a big issue can order an extension tube. But if its an 18350 write it down.

I might have missed seeing my post- But I’d sure like a code please if you didn’t send me an email. Sorry if this is a duplicate post. Will the output vary much between the 18350/16340/18650 batteries? I’ve got plenty of 18650’s arounf— I apologize if I messed up writing. I have catarsacts and my vision is kinda messed up today.. I did see this spec and thinking on the XP-G3. Thanks for the chance to save some money. onnha

I’m having a hard time figuring out the runtime info:

Lumens: 2lm,20lm,140lm,240lm,545lm,735lm,2023lm (XP-G3)
1lm,17lm,125lm,220lm,490lm,650lm,1740lm (XP-G2)
1lm,16lm,125lm,210lm,475lm,630lm,1630lm (Nichia 219C)

Runtime: 2.9D,1.3D,6h,2h,1h,0.4h,0.39h (18350)
14D,6.4D,29h,9.7h,4.8h,2h,1.99h (18650)

So, you only gain .01h runtime going from 2023lm to 735lm?

Maybe that means only 0.1h on turbo before stepdown Big Smile

Well, shoot I could buy that to some degree, .01hrs or a 36sec turbo stepdown, seems reasonable. I would expect then to see 8 durations listed for the 7 different levels, but it is 7 and 7.

I am liking this style light, having the S41 & S41S.
The low is very nice, I can look into the bizness end of both with no discomfort.
Kinda cool seeing those 4 emitters in sync. Have to put it up close to see anything butt there are 7 levels.
I pre-ordered this S42 in 219C as I don’t have any light with that LED.
The Manker version is very interesting also, butt pricey.
Think I’ll wait to see how hot this gets, and accessing that switch w/o gloves.

Talking to my contact at BG, there’s a lot of eager anticipation for this light.

Personally, I can’t wait! Let’s hope it lives up to the hype Smile

We need this with a copper head. Apparently there is a manker version of this light with copper head.
