Does anyone else have the pronounced yellow dot in the hotspot that is somewhat common for XP-L HI emitters?

Glen I gather that you appreciating a flashlight is high praise indeed! I have been thoroughly impressed with each of Hank’s emisar branded lights. I have 5 D4s (all different emitter options) and a single D1 (so far!)

Joey, I’m thoroughly enjoying the D1 more and more as I use it. I love it so much, I plan on buying a D4 and a D1S when it comes out.

I notice it only on a white wall at around 10 feet. In real use, it’s not noticeable at all. BTW, It’s not a dot from what I’m seeing. I’d call it the center of the hot spot. It’s minor and not a big deal IMO.

I have been anxiously awaiting the release of the D1s ever since Hank slipped a picture of him holding one into another thread. Anyone know when?

If it’s the size of the Convoy M1/M2 I imagine the Convoy holster will fit (it fits S2+ sized lights with still some room to spare)

So you can have an idea of what the D1 looks like in the Convoy S2+ holster, here are some pics. I happen to have both, but I don’t normally use them in this combination. You can see that it fits and will close, but because of the big head it feels like the velcro wants to separate. The stiff fabric would probably bend more easily over time with use. Perhaps it could work for someone.

I own a M8 modded with fet driver , let me measure it;s output later today , and i’ll report back .

Thanks Wink It is more of curiosity, as I have the Jaxman M8 under sight for so long, but not the Emisar D1 comes and makes things complicated Big Smile Facepalm Despite being different lights in terms of functioning, of course!
Thanks!

My M8 has a fet driver running sir404dp fet , for 53kcd . I think i measured th reflector at 29mm back when i modded it .

Thanks Wink That is sure of a hotspot! I suppose their illumination range is quite similar, then!

Is there a memory mode that ignores turbo?

There is a memory mode that doesn’t ignore turbo. So 2-click to get out of turbo before turning off.

Received mine today (finally, the Swedish post is not what it used to be…).

Quality and function is impeccable, but I really don’t like it being low CRI.
I hope there will be a high CRI version available in the future.

The diameter of the head between those 2 lights seem different enough for this holster to fit both well…which one fits less well??

The holster is built with elastic bands in the sides, so it can accomodate different sizes. Look at the pictures on BG.

Honestly, that doesn’t look any better than the Convoy holster I posted pictures of. The pictures on BG just show a narrow head type of flashlight fitting well into the holster (looks like a S41). Sure the D4 will fit, but I imagine the fat head of the D1 will be bulging out at the top. Pictures of actual use would be helpful.

Thanks a bunch! That actually does look like it fits better. My skepticism has been neutralized. Big Smile

I’m used to neutral tints. The tint in the 6500K SST40 from Mountain is quite cold in comparison.

Hopefully Mountain will get some 5000K SST 40 soon. 6500K is a bit too cold for me.

I tried dedoming a few of these SST40s this weekend:

  • First attempt: Soaked the star in Coleman Fuel for 3 hours, then pushed off the dome with a toothpick. This is the method I used to successfully dedome many XPG2, XML and XPL emitters. OUTCOME: Failure. When the dome came off it took out the emitter wires. The bond wires weren’t just snapped off at both ends. They were simply gone.
  • Second attempt: Same as above, but soaked for 6 hours. OUTCOME: Failure. Same result as first attempt. Both bond wires snapped. They were still there, but the ends connecting to the casing had broken and both wires were dangling from the LED.
  • Third attempt: used the hot knife method to slice off the top of the dome about a half mm above the emitter. Heated the star with emitter just as if doing a reflow (but not till solder melted). Then heated a brand new unused #10 exacto knife blade and sliced off the top of the dome. OUTCOME: Success. Smoothest slice dedome I’ve ever done and I didn’t break the bondwires. It still works. Hotspot is noticeably smaller with similar throw to the stock XPL HI (maybe a tiny bit less). Unfortunately, the tint shift was extremely minimal. Went from maybe 6500 down to 6000K at best. Still too cool for me.
  • Fourth attempt: Coleman fuel soak overnight. I’m not expecting any better results than the first and second attempt though. The bondwires seem much more fragile than those on CREE emitters. Looks like if I want to dedome these and get a shift closer to neutral I may need to get some Toluene. OUTCOME: will find out tomorrow.

I dedomed it in regular 95 octane petrol. Soaked it upside down and the dome fells off and you know then it is done.
I made this little thing wrom wire to hold the led upside down.

I like the Astrolux holster (I have a dozen)…but when I’ve received my first Convoy Holster for S2+….no comparison….better the Convoy, no doubt.

For a D1 I will prefer Convoy holster because of head size but when I don’t need spare battery and put in S2+ or other tube light I like the Astrolux more. It is thinner so don’t use much space in my bag.

Thanks for the upside down dedoming picture Zozz.

Been so long since I dedomed I forgot that it worked better if the star is placed upside down on a rack. This is the first time I’ve tried dedoming since XPL HI hit the market.
