It ordered Spring (NW) and Winter (WW) and winter arrived today.

It is a great little light, but I cannot get myself to order autumn and summer. The Gold is just over the top and a CW emitter is not really for me and I don’t wanna have to mod an 80€ light, just to like it.
The rainbow titanium anodisation however is a must . but seems stuck in customs… so it will probably arrive after Christmas.

The Friendship blue looks really nice too and is a great idea of Olight to thank all their reviewers.
They are making great lights but they need people to tell others about it, and great reviews are a lot of work.
A really nice gesture.

HELLO!
Has anyone tried to build a charging dock and cap or something similar?

I think it would require some sort of diode to prevent shorting but that starts a range of issues regarding voltage and so on.

Has anyone even thought of building a charging port on a flashlight like Convoy?

I started making some drawings and measurements for Nitecore EC11, maybe cut a charging dock in the tailcap.

By a cap you mean something like this?

Thanks for posting. Not sure if the first few batches omitted it or you got a faulty unit, but I tested and there’s a blocking diode in the base (.432V), which means it’s impossible to discharge the battery by shorting the external contacts. They will only allow power to flow into (charge) the battery.
