I wouldn’t bet on that!
So far Anduril is ran by Li-Ion batteries, as far as I know (and without being a modded version, of course).

I for one think the TRIPLE emitter 14500 (fw3a) is a Great Idea. Just in terms of unique and different. And also – you can very often buy parts from Lumintop (i have been emailing them this week and they are great about selling parts), so now there would be triple mcpcb and optic we would potentially be able to buy from LT for our own mods. whats not to like about that?

Plus, i have about (20) 14500 SINGLE EMITTER lights, so really the last thing i see any value in is having another… I dont think i have ever seen a triple emitter 14500, and if manker (or someone else) has one, this FW3a “mini” is better, heres why: Anduril, fantastic Tail e-switch, optic, hopeful mod-ability.

i find this light very interesting and unique, and worthwhile on LT’s part.

Freeme – please push for all of the colors offered in the first batch.

Could you setup a simple poll for the colors, to gain an interest list for Lumintop? That way the guess work is taken out of it. Maybe only offer the colors that over 100 votes come in for?

(gray, purple, blue, tan, green. Raw and black too).

I just know that the fw1a, fw21, fw21 pro, and pro x9L only came in the gray, and i am sure they would have sold more if they come in at least some of the colors.

For example – who would Not have bought a Blue/green/Purple/tan fw21 pro? I would own 5 fw21 pro’s if they came in all the colors.

I very much doubt that will happen sadly, these get heavily milked and they know a lot will buy this first just to ‘have it’ then buy more as others are released, if you release them all at once you won’t sell so many, well that’s how I see it /it happened every other time.

But make a one way deep carry clip. This clip looks terrible.

I agree with that, not selling as many if you release them all at once, and i think the raw and black coming later was a good idea as special models. But i do have to say – try buying a colored fw3a right now, they arent available. Sure you can find blue and green on BG, but everything else is gone. So i think in time they really would sell. I think purple and sand/tan would sell very quickly.

Interested! SST20 4000k high-CRI. Deep carry clip please. Also other models like single emitter and titanium would be awesome. Thanks!

Vapcell H10 light for sure

Absolutely, or the Keep power version. I believe 14500 lights with the A6 driver can draw up to around 6.5 amps and I’d expect this to draw more even though I think the final spec. will be considerably less then the 2800lm shown.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

Triple would be nice with some small, flat emitters. Like Luxeon CZ or Boost HM.
But considering that the PCB is going to be custom and therefore it will be hard to convert to another footprint, 3535 might be a better choice. And it will be very very floody with any good 3535 emitter that’s available with high CRI. So…i like the uniqueness. I love how it shaves a couple of mm from the length. But I think that a single emitter would be overall a better choice.

ADDED:
I see that there’s an emitter choice posted a while ago. As expected, all options are 3535.
I would say SST-20 because it’s relatively throwy. But warm CRI-95 only, no 6500K EDC. Facepalm

BTW, XP-P might be a fun choice. Though I wouldn’t pick one.

I’m already on the list, but will add my preference for the LEDs. I would love warm high-CRI SST-20 (either 2700k or 4000k, doesnt matter too much to me). I have no interest on the cool white SST-20, so if the options remain the same I would choose the Nichia 219C 4000k.
