problem is that it is not reular being down, last week i`ve seen it showing info about company that owns haikelite.
so there was no info about flashlights. all the old link led to this main page.

hope that is really something like desing update.

Please, help. Has received Haikelite SC26 and is very upset. I turn on the flashlight, and I have some leapfrog with the inclusion. In the description it is indicated that by default the mode of gradual increase in brightness is set, and I have one mode, as I understand it, the maximum one. on and off-all. After 5 clicks and after 8 clicks nothing happens either withholding or withholding. Very much I ask to prompt that to me to do or make

My 26350 cells have arrived yesterday and I took the fatty outside for the first time.
My fatty is with XHP35 HI neutral.
I took it together with Emisar D1. These lights have very similar head diameters. Emisar is shorter and much lighter.
Emisar has thinner bezel and a larger reflector. It also has a SMO reflector and a smaller emitter, so the hotspot is quite a bit larger.

As expected, D1 threw farther. But SC26 was not as far behind as I expected and it made up for it with a much nicer beam and higher output. Overall – I like it. I consider EDCing it after I have enough of GT Mini, but I don’t like the thought of thrashing the anodization. With a blue trit SC26 looks nice. I don’t like the shape really, but the blue colour makes up for it.
However, I’d like to boost power some more…..which I think is not a good idea. Pok has measured 6.5A at 4.2V, that must get up as the cell discharges. That’s already a lot for 26350 cell…..
Maybe switching to Aspire 18350 (which has lower internal resistance) would enable higher output. Facepalm

I’m thinking about filing the threads by several mm. I don’t need protected cell support….but that would ruin the ano on one edge as well, so I’ll probably just reduce the gaps, they total like 1 mm.

@valera, imagine runtime with a 26650/2.5x

That will get you the approximate runtime with a 26350.

Please tell who has already bought the flashlight: which reflector: SMO (smooth) or OP (orange peel) in a GREEN version of the flashlight?

I really like OP reflectors, but on some images in the internet/stores, it only available in the black, gray and brown body colors. However, here, on the forum, some show their navy version with OP reflector. I am very confused.

Or, does the reflector type depends on the led: HD has OP reflector and HI has SMO reflector?

Thank you in advance!

Hey how are you doing and welcome to BLF! Party I have two green SC26 from the first batch that came out from Banggood. Both are neutral white and high intensity (HI). If I recall correctly, there is only one type of reflector which is a very fine orange peel reflector, like on both my SC26. I can imagine on some pictures this will look like a smooth reflector.
Manufacturers also tend to change specs without communicating, so who knows there are both smooth and orange peel reflectors for the SC26. But I am not aware of this. If there is a smooth and orange peel reflector variant of the SC26, then it makes more sense that it is dependent on the led type as you’ve mentioned instead of body colour.

all colors are available in both smooth and orange peel reflectors high density and high intensity, atleast they are on banggood.

but yes if u chose HD then u will get OP reflector for more flood, chose HI and u get a smooth for a bit more throw but less lumens.
