M4U not suitable?

Needs to have a bit more grunt to compete with most out there now.

Sofirn now have the IF22 & IF22A. Convoy doesn’t have anything much in terms of longer range. There’s other brands I could stock, but I just love Simon’s pricing and customer service, unbeatable I reckon

If the diameter of the TIR lens and the reflector are the same, the range of the TIR lens will be worse.
In fact, I can find related lenses, but I personally don’t like TIR lenses in terms of long-range shots.
If you are interested, I can develop one.

Even though range for the same diameter might be less, I like TIRs because of the beam shape – more usable light. I’d definitely be interested in a convoy sft40 TIR (but I think the IF22A is ugly/awkward looking).

Would like have more groups with different modes spaces on their drivers.
Even more below 0.1% that I find too bright on some cases.

Do you often use facebook and reddit? Sometimes I want to post pictures of some new things. Uploading pictures here is a troublesome thing. I have to upload the pictures to flicker first, and then copy the link to post here.

Facebook is cancer. You could just link to reddit posts here if you posted a picture there.

I use imgur (https://imgur.com), which is much quicker as you can copy and paste images or drag and drop them. You still have to copy the link to post here but it’s much simpler.

Simon, I received your new M3C today the one without a head spring. Spring tension on the 26800 with extension and the 26650 with the body tube only is mild to weak. On moon mode a mild tap will turn it off. Other modes it flickers. My quick fix so far is to remove the retaining ring. Press a P60 outer dropin spring into the hole along with the supplied tail spring. It fits very snug but a longer stronger tail spring is needed.

Yes, there is a similar problem with the S11 spring. I put a vertically switched flashlight on the table and it switches the mode. Facepalm

Sorry for my poor english.

There is a possibility that this is a temporary solution to the problem. The spring will squeeze again over time and everything will repeat itself. I think need a more powerful spring or a double spring for flashlights with heavy 26650 batteries.

It looks wicked. I hope there’ll be an adapter for a 21700/26650 because I can’t get a 26800 in New Zealand. I can get the light shipped with one, but no spares are possible

Those cooling fins look even more aggressive than on the L7! Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

I held off on the L7 because it is a little too big. But this……. Big Smile Big Smile

Can’t wait for the first 2×26800 – this seems like a good candidate.

Yes, it’s a sample ,but the driver is not good ,
it’s a FET driver, The manufacturer claims that the maximum output can reach 25A, but when I measured it was only 19.2A

spring can soldered on the the 26mm plate, The area used for welding the spring on the driver is too small, and I cannot find a suitable spring that can withstand large currents.

Maybe talk to BlueSwordM about his high current springs, together they can handle 21A. Maybe they will fit

Looks good, that’s your biggest reflector yet. Any chance of a M3 or L2 size head for us pocket rocket people?

Love the design on the new 26800 light! Finally a proper SBT90.2 mid size thrower with adequate cooling. I’ll sure order one when the driver and spring issue gets sorted out. Just squeeze in a bigger FET and worst case scenario use solid brass +ive contact and 18awg bypassed rear spring.

Will it be called the L5?
