You could email Hank and ask for a custom build with Osram W1 on Channel 2.

You reckon that would be the best option for throw with the Carlo optics available, I’ve sent him an email to ask his suggestions anyway but it would be good to hear other ideas

Has anyone had any luck getting their KR series tailcap apart? I have a KR4 with a trit button I would like to swap into one of my KR1s (to match colors) but they are both glued tight. Figured I would ask if anyone has tips before I tried. I just use a pair of old tweezers I bent out to grip retaining rings, but I can’t apply a ton of torque that way. I imagine I’ll have to use heat first either way.

I’ve gotten all mine off with needle nose pliers. I get the pliers aligned in the slots, with the tailcap against my palm. I press pretty hard against the tailcap while turning and they all came loose. I didn’t see glue in any of them.

I’ll try this because I haven’t been able to get mine apart either on my KR1 or kr4

Hank, would you sell E21A leds separately?

I cant believe it took me a month to try doing this. FW3x deep carry clip fits great on the d4v2 with a little light modification. the new KR4 deep carry clip attachment ring was just a little too big, plus i had an extra one of these. thought i’d share.

The D4 was always a good pocket clip away from me wanting it. Nice mod! The brass is very pretty.

Hello Hank,

Do you have nighttime pictures of Noctigon K9.3, where I could see, how the beam looks like for E21A at channel 1?
Also, I was already planning to purchase one more D4V2, but could not see Gray color body option – will it be restocked?

I couldn’t decide whether to get E21A 2000K or 2700K for the K9.3 so i bought one of each. One with deep red on CH2 and the second on with Osram yellow

I have one of those in 6500K but I wish I could get a couple in 2000K. Hank said the emitter isn’t available in this light though.

In fact, when I go to that page there aren’t any drop downs or option to add it to my cart

Yeah, it’s out of stock at the moment completely – I’m hoping when it comes back, the cyan is available again.

Nice! I also have (3) 26350 batteries which are just taking up space right now. I wonder if he’s do a 2700k / 4000k tint mix. Maybe not enough emitters for that to work. I did that with my D18 and the beam looks amazing

Just my unsolicited ¢2 . . .

I’d love to see a: single emitter, triple secondary, 14500 powered, rear switch, tail standing, Andúril flashlight, with a pocket clip – from Hank. I’d be in for a half- dozen of them.

Anybody else?

Enjoy the light show - LedTed

Yeah me too. Truthfully I’ll buy any new light he comes out with. I have a KR4 in 2000K, a D4VS2, a D18 w/ warm tint mix , and 3 K9.3’s on the way. Haha

I’m hoping he makes a dual channel headlamp. 2000K emitters plus Osram on channel 2 would be pimp

That actually sounds amazing. I’d go 3500k e21a primary though cause I only feel like living in sepia sometimes Big Smile

I was so close to getting the 3500k instead of the 2700 for my K9.3. What do you like about it? Maybe I’ll grab a KR4 to check it out

Hank now glues the retaining ring in the KR1 / 4 series tailcaps, I have been in discussion with Hank over this. Older tailcaps were not glued.

I crudely fabricated a tool to fit the retaining ring, with one of the recent glued tailcaps and with force alone I am unable to get the retaining ring loose.

On an older tailcap I did mange to loosen the retaining but it took some force.

3500k just feels like the best mix of ‘comfortably warm’ and ‘usable white light’ to me. Anything warmer is a nice sometimes novelty, anything cooler than 4000k to me is a compromise when I’m chasing lumens or candela.

If I was going to get a k9.3 I’d go for a 3×2700, 3×4500, 3×3500 mix to try and pull the overall tint under the BBL. I’ve got a 2700/4500 mix in the KR4 and its my favorite color/tint of all… saying that though the floody optic is fairly limited to indoor/close range stuff. I’m not sure how that would translate to the k9.3 or whether there are different optics depending on the emitter?

Thanks for the information and pics. I want to disassemble the tailcaps on a first-run E21A KR4 and an early-run KR1, I don’t know exactly when Hank made the change but they both seem to be glued. I did try a set of needle nose pliers which fit decently into the rtaining ring, but were unable to budge either one at all despite applying a good amount of force. I guess I will try to heat them with a hair dryer and then try again.

Great idea! I may order another with that combo and three Osram Greens.

That switch is cool looking. What color is that?
