This light seems to incorporate the features I want in my next light. When are we going to see some tests or reviews?

One thing I noticed in the pictures of the front on of the head, the square head part is not as big as I thought, it only just sticks out enough to stop rolling around.

Strange MCPCB layout, looks somewhat unprofessional.
And one of the screws in the MCPCB is pretty close to the positive trace.
Is this really the final version?

That’s a great little light.
I should really stop buying more lights. I probably won’t stop buying more lights…

It was too late to change the MCPCB layout when I had first prototype they had it already in production
I would have done it differently

Both pictures for better comparison.
Is yours, what you got or how you would design it? Its hard to see.
These boards are different. They have different holes and not at least a different color.

Steel, why use that paper on the TA Tube?

Did you get the 2 discs that go in front of the meter?

Maybe slightly more as the TA tube grossly under-reads floody light.

I’m tempted by the CW option. It’s like the DQG Tiny 3th and Acebeam X80 had a kid.

Steel, do you know how long the runtime is for the rot66 on its highest regulated ouptut? Is heat an issue?

He’s not really bashing anything. He’s just stating that he thinks it might read low on floody lights. I don’t think it does, but this statement/opinion doesn’t seem against forum rules.

We all have opinions and they are discussed here, often vigorously, but I think most people here, most of the time, state them as opinions instead of presenting them as facts. I think that is what led to the problem. (In my opinion)

I think he’s being warned, repeatedly, because we’re all ready for him to get off his soap box. He’s been heard. We’ve heard him. We’ve responded to him. The phrase “beating a dead horse” comes to mind. Time to drop it.
