Got my cyan unit in today! This is a true tiny monster, the output is wonderful for something so small. It really fits the hand well, I love 26650 lights and this did not disappoint. BTW, got SST-20 4000K. They appear to be the same bin as the D4V2, but at all levels it appears to have a better tint.

EDC rotation:
FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
S2+, XM-L2 T6 4C

If the tint is noticeably better probably not the same bin then. I know Simon had several for a while (prior to the D4V2) and maybe he is still using up those or got a better batch to more closely compete with the FW3X and MF01 Mini?

When I compare an original fw3a sst-20 4000k, an fw3a with known fd2 bin sst-20 and, original D4v2… this seems to fall between the awful D4v2 and the fd2 bin sst-20.

Everyone includes me Innocent

Slightly too cold tint, light quality is very dull and boring, compared to any higher CRI led from other manufacturers that take illumination quality more seriously. Ok for occasionally lighting up stuff in the dark, unbearable for EDC.

If you asked that question three years ago I really would have liked the led, but so much has happened in led quality the past years (but not at Cree) that it is not so anymore.

I went the same way. True, good old XP-L HI has low CRI, but as I was advised by TK, they sustein the highest output due to least heat production. Bingo for me since in this case I pay much attention to long-term output.
I’m more CRI demanding when it comes to headlights…

Yes, the SST-20 5000K LED is currently out of stock, and we are not sure when it will be available again.

Would it be possible to order the lighted switch and the white switch cover separately to use it with other Emisars?

The switch PCB from the D4v2 Ti+Cu does not fit into the D4v2 Aluminum.

Is the opening in the D4v2 Aluminum too small?

If so, it might still fit with a little dremeling or filing.

Will you offer it with warm white high CRI LEDs under the button and with adjustable brightness levels let’s say up to 5-10 Lumens to use as reading light or as all night long room light!! It would be awesome!!

if you do it i I will buy up to 5 lights 

Also why you don’t offer more high CRI LEDs options?? 

 

  Red leds under the button is awesome too!!

I ordered mine a couple days ago when the option was available on the website.

Personally, I chose the flush-switch. The raised switch offers additional protection against pocket activation. But with Anduril, it’s less important than with the D4v1’s rampingIOS. Anduril has protections to prevent pocket burning.

I have a D4v2 with the raised switch ring. It works, but the upper edge of the ring is a bit sharp. I much prefer my home made raised ring constructed from a filed down nickel-plated brass finishing washer, which has a comfortable rounded feel at all angles.

I recently contacted Hank about the raised retaining switch option and he added it within the hour. Got mine ordered!

Press fit, but still replaceable if you’re careful!

It seems like every model is getting a V2. Any word on if there will be a D1 V2?
