Hi Joe

Your link doesn´t work

Maybe this one works

https://www.taschenlampen-forum.de/threads/groupbuy-shockli-akkus-m%C3%B...

But it´s also possible because of a restriction on TLF for the market place so not everybody here can see it

Does the release of the D4S mean the end of the regular D4? I’d love to be able to keep buying D4’s, but there doesn’t seem to be much inventory any more. I’m hoping that it is because they’re just focusing on D4S production right now.

I’m a little bummed because I ordered 2 Shockli batteries, but ended up ordering button tops. I may have to order two more flat tops now. While I love buying flashlights, I hate having to keep purchasing batteries.

So if I understand correctly, currently only lights with a “smooth” battery tube are being sold? I’m guessing they will have the version with knurling later.

I think it means “not chalky” feeling…but with knurling…smoothish anno…not the rough stuff

When I'm spending mony foolishly, I like to do it wi$ely...

I have all the flashlights I need, but not as many as I want...

Cheers Fab1. It looks like Gearbest wont ship them to the UK. Torchy the battery boy on ebay UK sells them. I have seen him recommended in threads from a few years ago. So I might get some from him.

Does anyone know if there are any plans for other D4S colours? I’m still hoping for a purple one to be made.

I just noticed that too Sad

I’ve just bought a GT Mini (which arrived about 20min ago!) so might wait till next payday to get the D4S so hopefully will locate some by then, or I’ll just get one from Int-outdoors.

I think torchy re-wraps the cells so he might able to remove the button tops or wrap some without the addition of the button tops if he is the one who adds them.

I’ve sent a request to him on ebay and will update here if I get a response.

Richard at Mountain Electronics suggests two button-top batteries (one being the Shockli) for the D4S. The pre-order page says that the maximum battery length for the D4S is 69mm and the Shockli is 66.8mm according to his site. Another button-top cell he recommends is 67.8mm and in his words, “Only batteries on the recommended list are guaranteed to work.” If he is selling them in conjunction with the D4S, I’d bet they’d work.

Of course he’s out of stock at the moment. Seems that there was a lot of recent 26650 buying activity. I’m looking at you SC26!

There have been some excellent lights recently released in the 26650 format – Thrunite, Lumintop, and now Emisar. I’m glad because I have lots of these cells, and it is a comfortable size for a hand grip. Too bad none of the big four battery cell companies are making these. 21700 may become the standard eventually, but probably still a few years off.

Arguably the best all-round light on the market is a 26650, the Rofis MR70. They’ve just brought out a 21700 version that doesn’t tickle my balls.

If argument dictates that the Rofis MR70 is the best all-round light on the market I need to quit. That light is very weak looking in my personal opinion, looks like a girl would use it for lighting up the night in a completely different way. With the XHP-70.2 there is no need for an orange peel reflector. Much better throw and intensity with a mirror finish.

I’m very happy to have a LOT of lights that perform better than that one!

My MF04 throws better, does it fit in my pocket, glow in the dark, light up the entire back yard, charge my phone, look sexy as hell and double up as a nice warm cosy reading light?

Sexy is in the eye of the beholder – the word that comes to mind for me is “fugly”. But that’s why with so many choices we can find our own best all-round light

I tend to avoid pipe bombs, you know, cheap built in charger’s in a flashlight.

A light can either light up the whole backyard or it can throw to the neighbors down the road, seldom does one do both. Flood or throw, it’s typically an either/or scenario. Fit in a pocket? Why? Lose something in there? Belt scabbards carry lights of all sizes, some more easily than others. I wouldn’t think having a light in a pocket would be such a great idea, keeps the battery right at 100º instead of a “cool dry place”. Also too easy to accidentally have one turn on in the pocket and uh, scramble eggs?

shirnask summed it up pretty well, luckily there are a lot of options so we can find our own parameter. Me? I really like the $11 Eagle Eye X6 host, built up in any one of the dozens of ways I’ve built them. Big Smile

Besides, for it to be sexy it has to have a lot of Titanium … Wink

<—— 10,000+ lumen Titanium X6 with Trit Vials.

But not all humans wear belts Wink
Also, if I would wear a belt – I don’t like stuff to be attached to that.
A light must fit in my pocket – but luckily I don’t wear tight jeans and can fit pretty much anything inside my pockets, even a SkyRay King. So a single 26650 light is no problem.

I remember seeing comparsion-shots of the beams D4 vs. D4S – where can I find them again?

The MR70 is far from my fave light though, if I could have just 4 it’d be Emisar D4, DX80, X80-GT and MF04. If I had to have 1 light then the MR70 would serve me well in all scenarios other than 250m+ search and rescue.

The included 5500mah battery gives nice runtimes too.
The MR70 also has a red location beacon light on the button that can be enabled/disabled with ease.
It even has double springs for less resistance!
The fact the front light is cool white and side light is warm white really tickles my balls.

I picked mine up for $60, at that price all it needs for me is a 1 lumen Moonlight mode, trit holes and it’d be perfection.
