I also am a 2700/4000 believer. A great first choice.

Not as powerful as some lights to be sure, but still blasts out an incredible amount of light relative to my old, trusty Nitecore TM26


Your D18 have selectable tint?
If yes I would see that function on the KR4/D4.A great alternative of Sofirn IF25

Actually, I paid Hank $10 to mix 2700 and 4000 diodes evenly. So 9 of each. But from any distance, it blends into a beautiful soft yellow beam. Like an old maglight.

Doesn’t blind the people I’m out walking with like my 6500K’s. As much as I love E21A 2000K for indoors, it’s too warm and not bright enough for my tastes for walking around outside

You also might like XP-L HI V2 5D 4.000K. I have that for CH1 on one of my K9.3s and the power is awesome yet the tint is gentle on the eyes. I wish Hank could put 18 of those in a D18 for me but I don’t think that’s possible because of the driver or something

I’d love it if his website let you search my emitter or tint. Like pick that one and see all the lights that it’s possible to put in

I’ve been asking for something like that since the original D1, but we get this instead. Who even wanted something like this that doesn’t even take a 21700?

Anyone have a D18vn with cslpm1 or cslnm1? is it worth it? meaning added throw for added heat? Let’s say cct is not a factor because it is what it is. I had the d4s cslpm1 and sold it because it was impractical (Heat), and i didn’t feel that the added throw was worth how quickly it got uncomfortably hot. it got hotter faster then my Lumintop X9l with roughly same output and throw. i’m wondering if d18 with osram is the same? or is the added throw so good it overrides, for you, the fact it gets really hot?

I dont know if this question makes sense, but i’m considering d18 with cslnm1 or -pm1.

ummm.. uhh.. WTF! I hope someone modded that themself, but looks like Hanks switch. unless they did a driver / switch swap??

OR, Hank really likes some other collector mroe then the numerous people on blf who have asked him.. Because i have asked him more then once, and within the last month. We email often enough where i think he might actually remember me as one of those guys who always changes something or adds something to their order after palcing it and pays him through paypal seperately. I know theres others out there.

Anyway, i just checked the site, no dice on him offering it on the store. So maybe a first time trial for hank and that owner? Or someone is just really lucky

EDIT: i have not bought nearly as many Hank lights as other members here, i know that. But i have probably bought 25-30 Hank lights. half of them this year alone. Id like to think he would hook me up with one of those D4 aluminum back lights lol. i told him id pay extra of course.

Yup, i’m ordering one too. I looked back in my email and i guess i asked hank less times then i thought. Also, recently i asked him if he could do it in the D4sv2, not the d4v2. he said no he couldn’t, so i was confused. sorry everyone.

Edit:
Thanks TimMc! for the heads up on the aluminum lighted switch.

I bought a D4V2 E21 2000K without the magnet. I want it now !

Can the magnet ($ 2 only) be added or do I have to buy the entire magnetic tailcap (7 $ ) ?
I removed the spring from the tailcap and there is a small hole.
I guess this is the space to add the magnet.

I asked Hank but I’m not sure he understood my question: he offers me the tailcap at 7 $.

I’ve bought neodymium magnets at the hardware store, and grinding the correct size was a pain, I could only fine slightly larger ones and grinding them down to fit. It once I did all of that they still never worked right.

Personally i would buy the tail cap from Hank, but it sure a couple people on here that can walk you through the process

Thank for the answer
In fact, I want to buy the magnet from Hank with my next order but it seem he is only selling the whole magnetic tailcap

Just got a small batch XP-L HI T6 8D LED in stock, 2800K, 90CRI, we will not put it for sale on the site,
if you like it, please order the XP-L HI V2 5D 4000K version on the site, and send us an email,
so that we can use XP-L HI T6 8D LED for the light you purchase.

I hate to ask this question, but if you have the ability, is there anyway to give an estimate lumen rating for the kr4 or d4. I will look at the CREE data sheet and probably get a decent estimate.. but I am just curious, more so compared to the 5d 4000k. I feel like my 5d 4000k lights are close to as bright as my 3a 5000k xpl-hi lights. Hoping the 8d is similar too!

Hmmm, the 8D's are T6 bin, so down 2 levels from the V2 5D's, so from what I've measured, they should be lower. How much to be noticeable is another issue.

Is not V2 5D 4000k and T6 8D 2800k?

Should be lower, right? I guess I do not understand bins well, so if someone could clarify, I would appreciate it.
I do understand one letter/number combination indicates distance from BBL (or maybe both?)

So much still for me to learn.

T6 and V2 are bins, for brightness or lumens output, not color, tint, BBL related, etc. Explained here: https://flashlightwiki.com/Brightness_Bins

The wiki has some good basic info, though dated, it's pretty much all or mostly relevant.

T6 is a brightness bin, 8D is the chromaticity bin, you need to check the XP-L datasheet , T6 means 280-300lm at 1050mA, 8D is below the BBL. For reference kaidomain has a 90CRI XPL HI T5 7C1, one bin lower and above the BBL, so I guess this a good deal.

XPL HI at 3000K is too warm for me.

I wonder if I can get a high-CRI XPL HI light by combining 2 or 3 of these high CRI XPL HI leds with maybe 1 low-CRI cool white XPL HI.
