So where are we at with this? Looks like the last updates are from much earlier in 2019.

My problem with the sp10 is that
1) it’s just too big for an AA light ( just as long as a fw3a, and just as fat as an eagtac d25c. Not as bright as the fw3a, not as thrown as the d25 c), and
2) the proud side switch will come on 40 times a day if I dont lock it out

Having a super easy and intuitive lockout for a light like this is paramount to making it a likable light.

I think a new u/I for edc lights would be nice:

Light is always locked out when off. Single click from off does nothing (maybe a dim, momentary batt check that is able to be disabled).

Hold down from off is monentary.

Click then 1 press/hold to go to moonlight.

Double click from off goes to the last used mode.

2 clicks + press/hold from off for top of ramp.

Triple click from off for turbo.

3 clicks plus press/hold for strobe. Just one strobe mode.

Quad click for a continuous batt check which doubles as a beacon. One click to turn off.

The ramping is similar to anduril.

One click to turn off from any mode.

No other features.

U/Is are like underwear- everybody has a different opinion of what is good, but horrible U/Is are universally hated.

I love anduril, but it could just use some tweaks for my personal tastes.

I got an SP10S from a previous sale and the lack of magnetic tailcap is really bugging me. If it had one, then I would prolly get a couple.

Interested but would like to see the side switch ditched in favor of a tail clicky.

Unfortunately that rules out Anduril unless it’s a special (read: “complex”) tailcap set up like the FW3A family. Anduril requires an e-switch.

This project has had persistent interest with not a lot of updates for months. AA/14500 may not be the height of flashaholic fashion (flashion?) but it seems a durable and timeless choice for every day needs.

Where did you get them with shipping to Belgium? I’m trying to find who ships them to Bulgaria, no success so far.

So are these the same as the black Shockli 14500 1000mah cells that previously said 3A max on them? The listing you linked still says 3A, and the ones I ordered from Amazon say 3A, but the cell testing shows they obviously perform above 3A… I’m assuming they just changed the wrap? Maybe Simon from Shockli can comment… interesting.

You have to understand what the amp readings mean. Normally when a battery is rated with a number it will either be max continuous or max pulse. Max continuous means it’s put on a special machine that applies a 3A load and constantly maintains the same 3A from 4.2v all the way down to 2.8v and the temperature of the cell never exceeds it’s safe max temperature (typically 60°C-70°C. Each model cell has it’s factory specs).

What this means is that the cell can pull more than 3A, just for a shorter amount of time or if the temperature is monitored.

Looking at the Shockli picture it says Max: 5A
It does not give any real details if that is max continuous or max pulse.

I see HKJ has tested the version that says 3A max and found it to handle 5A max continuous. I’m guessing Shockli changed the wrapper to 5A since the 3A rating was too conservative.
