Yeah, the bling is nice but for me this light was meant to be a tool rather than a toy.

It’s nice to see this fixed in Noctigon K1. Smile

BTW, will there be a SBT90.2 option?

That was fixed too in the D4V2 Ti and brass


Does the switch have RGB LED in these lights?
Yes, it does. the switch back light behaves as the aux LED.

I see that there are aux LEDs directed towards the optics. Now you say there’s another in the switch…
Are those sets addressable individually or do they always behave the same (on hardware and software level)?

I have the D4V2 Ti.

The LEDs in the switch are white only. They do not change colors with the bezel aux LEDs.

1. There is no aux LEDs in the K1.
2. There is RGB in the switch.

Yes, the button displays battery voltage while the light is on.

While the main light is off, the button acts as a RGB aux LED.

I have seen the LIGHT! Do these have aux lighting as well!? I am waiting with cash in hand. Great job, these are beautiful torches. I just got my Cyan D4SV2 a couple weeks ago and love it. Big Smile

Same. I planning on getting the new SBT90.2 FT03 but I’d much rather get this if it comes with that led. Always had a bad experience with Astrolux’s (Mateminco) QC. Every light has arrived with some kind of issue. If I’m paying for such an expensive LED I want it to last and not come with any problems. Also I need a reason to buy it cause it looks too cool.

I would not hesitate to pay ~$90 for the K1 with a SBT90.2, night watch and astrolux options are ~$70. But then it wouldn’t be branded as noctigon but emisar instead. Would make an insane performing flashlight for sure.

I know but everyone’s measurements are different. I want to see his numbers for both so I can see the percentage increase in throw.

I have no real use for a thrower like this but Emisar/Noctigon is my favorite manufacturer so I will grab one.

Yes its ready. Ships by Dec 15th it says. I was literally on his site last night to order a D4V2 for myself since my V1 has been acting up lately after a year and a half of EDC. The K1 wasn’t on there last night. I popped my head in here today after a absence and saw the posts on the K1. Immediately went back and ordered one as of about 5 minutes ago. I was doing so good too. The D4V2 was supposed to be my christmas present to myself, now Ive had to rationalize that Im replacing my V1 because I need to, and the K1 is my gift this year hahahaha.

Lurking flashaholic, Ive bought all my flashlights through lurking here, BLF A6, Sofirn C8F, Soforn Q8, Emisar D4, and a few not so budget lights but I mod them all the same! Been waiting for the FW3A to come out for years now.......

Ordered in Dark grey, W1. My D4V2 is in sand with all the options including raised bezel since Ive torched a few pockets and a nice jacket hem because Im too cool for lockout. Damn you all for feeding my addictions! I had told myself I didn’t need a thrower and last night the D1S wasn’t on the site anymore or I would have ordered one also, and still ended up with a K1 today.

I’ve been watching this thread with interest…..I’d appreciate some advice on whether the K1 would be suitable for me.

I don’t have a thrower flashlight at all and I like the idea of having one just to play with. But one specific time I’d use it is for confirming that no members of the public have entered the rear safety area before starting large electrically fired firework displays. A typical distance would be something like 200 metres depending on the products being used. I’m not expecting to illuminate the whole area…..just swing the beam over the periphery for a final check.

Would the K1 be too throwy for my situation?
Which of the two LED’s currently offered would be best at that kind of distance?

Thanks !

The W2 would be better for your use but 200M is still too short. I recommend you get the Nightwatch NI40 with the SBT90.2. It has a very large hotspot yet throws very well. The large hotspot allows you to scan much easier.

I have a blf gt70, had a GT , and a gt mini VN.
The GT did a good job on the park by my house, 300 yards to the stores on the other side. The GT70 does an incredible job in terms of throw AND lumens downfield. PLUS great spill for people spotting..

The GT miniVN, a bit less of a thrower than the K2, does ok at 300 yard with zero spill. Not sure how the K2 will be but I personally would want a GT70 or something. the park is 14 acres, ranging from 150 yards to 300 yards across from where I stand. With the GT0 a sweep would be unescapable….

Will have to try it, but I suspect the K1 would be about right for that. I think I have a convenient spot to check which is about 250 m away.

Edit: Yup, it works pretty well. At that distance, the beam illuminates most of the side of a house.

Probably when things melt enough to be able to move my car? It’s kinda stuck.
