the inner diameter of L2 for driver is too small for XHP35, i’m ready to enlarge it to 30mm, maybe i will use L6 host directly

Looking forward this light as well Smile

How about equipping it with the CSLNM1.TG or CSLPM1.TG? I read people were getting 500kcd + with the L2.

I made 541 kcd with CSLNM1.TG in L6
But it is not very easy to focus good and I needed to leave centering ring out so forr mass production it is a pain to set up those leds focus properly.

For mass protection, if they make an mcpcb specific to this emitter and centering ring, focusing shouldn’t be a problem.

They need to make a new reflector because the current need to sit directly on MCPCB and I needed to gring the reflector bottom to clear wires. Or need to use bigger MCPCB also. It is very picky about reflector height. If you are 0,1mm higher or lower with reflector than perfect you easily loose 50-100 kcd.

An xhp35 L6 with full function side switch and anduril would be amazing! Please use some kind of ramping e switch action if possible. Also, don’t overlook the low-lumen modes. I love the low on my L6, and think a lower moonlight and firefly set of modes could be useful, especially for using while eyes are dark adapted. It could run forever at one or even ten lumens! I would keep the forward clicky tail switch, but make sure it can be turned on and off with the side switch. The tail switch could be used for signaling, tactical uses, and lock out. A high cri option, like 90+ would be sweet too. Whatever you come up with, I’m in!

Your idea is very helpful to me, the driver manufacturer is making a drive sample for the XHP35 that fits the L6 host.

I’m not sure how realistic it is, but driver updates based on BLF firmware would be fantastic.

Andruil (or Narsil) on side switch lights would be amazing.

Although I love the 8×7135 Biscotti driver, something like a Moonlight Special style 1×7135 + 7×7135 would be great for a lower moonlight mode in the S series, and a TA style FET+n+1 would be nice in the M and BD series. Obviously these drivers are already available elsewhere but it would be great be able to order a Convey with them already installed.

Getting well off-topic from the L2 and L6, I’d really love to see a T2 with an updated driver – faster PWM, either off-time memory or no memory, and either no strobe or a really well hidden one (four taps). Good 1.5v boost drivers and easy-to-mod AA lights are hard to find.

Simon, Do you make a camo green L2? Gearbest is selling one and I ordered it. When I got it today it was the desert sand. I have contacted them with the discrepancy and hopefully will hear from them soon. Just curious if the camo green really exist.

My driver manufacturer has began to research the Narsil Big Smile

I think it would be good to research both NarsilM and Anduril firmwares.. Smile

I bought a Pastel Blue S2+ on Gearbest a while ago out of curiosity. It was really the same grey I already have several of. No complaints as it was only $9.99 and I like the grey. Seems like a trick though. Maybe same seller.

I am very sorry about the color deviation in the oxidation plant.

There is no deviation in the oxidation. Different sellers are using different words for the same color. some call it blue, most call it gray.
when I look at it I see more blue than gray. I prefer it to gray.

Simon. Off subject a little.
I ordered and got a C8+ recently.
Ordered Desert sand. Got a chocolate brown. (dark chocolate)
I did send a note on Paypal page but never got an answer
but I didn’t want to cause a stir
What would it cost me for a head and body in Desert sand Del to Australia.

This is sort of off-topic for this message about the L2… But body anodizing color inconsistency might also affect the other flashlights..

Do you mean something like this? (on each set of photos below, the left C8+ is darker brown)

Sorry for the unpleasantness, there are differences in oxidation color due to different oxidation batches.
I can make some compensation, or give some small gifts next time.

I’ll send Simon Photo in daylight tomorrow (6.30 pm Fri here now)
It’s probably between the two lower photo’s there.
Compared to the light desert Tan on sales page when buying
and I expected.

Anyway this t’ween Simon and self.
Back to L2.
I have stock one. to go with my stock L6 and couldn’t be happier with either.
Great torches for standard people like myself.
I’ve tried soldering some but end up “dead” mostly.
at 77 too clumsy anymore I think, Overcook?? whatever.
so I just enjoy what I got.

I’ve ordered an L2 Big Smile hopefully not too long until receiving

Ordered an L6 from banggood awhile ago and the battery tube ring was missing. They argued that it comes without it now lol. After 5-6 emails they sent me a whole new L6 Big Smile . Messaged Simon and he’s sent me the part free !!! I got a free L6
