Not sure where you purchased from but Illumn shows both the flat top and button top have a length of 49.4mm. I don’t think that can be right.

I was wondering the same thing, Illum lists the minimum capacity which has a 100mAh difference between the 3A and 10A cells. Not sure why Vapcell carries both since 100mAh probably translates into less than a 5 min difference in runtimes

And then if you say, skip past the blink on your ramp and end up at 5A, then you get like 40% less runtime.

Yeah, I don’t know why Vapsells them, and I don’t know why Illumn carries them for the practically negligible difference in price.

Not even the Vapcell storefront on Ali has the length correct. If you look on their store listing for the H10 Button top, it just says add 2-3mm, so apparently they don’t even know.

I’m trying to find out from lumintop if the button top will work. I believe they will as they are listed at 1.1mm under the stated battery size.

I know this is slightly off-topic but it still about leds. What is the difference between say,sst20 and orsam.So I guess I want to know more about Orsam leds.I m considering the Acebeam tk16 with orsam leds.

Osram:
- Very intense and small hotspot. Lots of throw.
- Best choice of emitter for longer ranges.
- Pretty poor up close due to small size of hotspot and overall low lumens.
- Cool white tint – looks good at full power. Looks a bit greenish and ugly at lower power.
- Low CRI

SST-20:
- Less intense beam. Less throw than Osram, with considerably wider beam.
- Good for close-medium range.
- Adequate for up close use, due to wider beam. But still inferior for close range compared larger emitters such as LH351D.
- Available in very high-CRI. Renders colors very well.
- Ugly greenish tint at lower power settings. More green than Osram.

I believe in this light SST-20 won’t work well at medium range, only up close.

For raw impressive output, I’ve still yet to find anything better than XPL-HI for small triples. XPL-HI offers nearly as many lumens as LH351D, with much more intensity, neutral white color temperature, and excellent rosy tints. Also due to its higher forward voltage it tends to run cooler in these tiny hotrods than other LEDs like SST-20 or Nichia 219c.

If you want to impress your friends, XPL-HI tends to be the most impressive.

Unfortunately, XPL-HI does not come in high-CRI. My current EDC is a modified DQG Tiny 18650 IV running Anduril with three high-CRI Nichia 219C as emitters.

This setup is quite a bit lower output than XPL-HI, but I like the tint, color temperature and CRI.

I notice there were some questions about the length of the Vapcell H10.

I’ve ordered the Vapcell H10 a couple of month ago, both flat-top & button-top (unprotected), their measurements are as follows:

Vapcell H10 (flat & button-top unprotected)

Vapcell H10 flat-top @ 49.1mm:

Vapcell H10 button-top (unprotected) @ 51.4mm:

The caliper I’m using is not that high-quality, so maybe error could be +/- 0.1-0.2mm.

Could you convince Neal / Lumintop to sell the 16mm triple mcpcb and triple optic alone?

That’s what Neals site has the measurements as when I bought some earlier

Interested! 14500 is my preferred pocket carry size so this will be a welcome addition. Please ask them for a deep carry clip though!! Not even bothered about the two way, but deep carry makes all the difference

This Thumbs Up . .. I second the motion for a deep carry clip!!!

Yep…. make it a single emitter option, deep carry clip and offered by another/ a different vendor and I’m in! This would be my favorite 14500 EDC then!

So according to the measurements the button top batteries are 9/10ths of a mm over the stated maximum battery size I think that they will work. Right???

It’s possible but the tolerances on the FWXX series lights are so tight that it could damage the spring or the cell itself over time.

I’ll admit it’s intimidating at first but once you have the light and understand the flow it gets MUCH easier.
