Man I’d love for Hank to offer a 2000K headlamp for walking around my house at night. I have the 2000K in a 9.3 and a Noctigon KR4 Ti+Copper

Howbow a necklight? I got one of these

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08JLFJM5T/

and find myself “wearing” it more’n any headlamp anymore.

Amber/NW/CW selectable, as well as brightness, L/R channels work independently, so you can have amber/brightest on the left, and NW middle brightness on the right, left/right/both as you want.

Pretty nifty.

Wow dude that looks sweet! Couldn’t resist ordering one, especially with an $8 off coupon

Thanks!

Man this neck light is sweet. I didn’t expect such great build quality. Not sure I agree with the business practice but it included a coupon to get a $10 amazon gift card if I post a 5 star review.

Only thing is it’s a little uncomfortable on the back of my neck when I’m sitting on the couch. I might add some foam where it hits my neck. Tried flipping it upside down

Yeh, even going down the basement, I can just grab it and go, hands-free.

How do you wear yours? The plastic ridge kind of digs into the back of my neck. I like flipping it so the lights point slightly down but that’s worse than when they point slightly up, if that makes any sense

Got it on now, dunno what “plastic ridge” you mean. Mine’s all smooth and round, nothing digging in.

Now that it’s 2021, what are the options for a 2000K flashlight?

I plan on building a Convoy S6 with quad Nichia E17A 2000K LEDs from Eurekatronix = Virence . If you have some soldering skills, this is not that hard to do.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Loving the neck light now that I’m used to it (: so much better than using the red mode on my bulky Nitecore headlamp for moving around the house at night

Yeh, it’s good stuff. At first I thought it would be monochrome amber or at least PCA, but it’s definitely überwarm white.

Shining on a variety of things, red shows as red, yellow as yellow, green as green, even blue as (pale) blue.
