Interested!
I love the 14500 size for EDC. In for one, haven’t decided between 4000K 219C or SST-20 yet (lumen and throw numbers for each would be nice at some point, but I assume they’re both fine.)

Interested. Nichia 219C 4000K (or another warm, high-CRI emitter).

I agree with a lot of the other suggestions/requests in this thread:

  • single emitter version
  • deep carry clip, preferably one-way to keep it slim
  • no writing or logos
  • colour options, ideally purple or raw (I understand the strategy of releasing colours later, and I hate it)

Interested in Nichia 5000K, but only if I don’t have to buy from a certain unreliable vendor.

Okay so the thing is, Lumintop has done a poor job on every change they’ve made to the FW3A, and they could never get the first one right to begin with. Now they have some unknown optic, drive, and Neal as vendor…

freeme, I’ll try to give you some help on this, so that the efforts making this flashlight “real” don’t become more undermined by situations related to the manufacturer or the seller!

Also, with all the respect, you are an experienced member here and from the photo and from other indications given along this thread you can notice that some things need to be corrected as they do not correspond to the truth or what you/us see.

So, please check:
- Emitter: 3 Cree XP-L HI / Nichia 219C / SST20 LED / XP-G3
- Flux: ~2800 lm (XP-L Hi)
- Switch: Electronic side switch with a back up light
- Others: Magnetic tail cap, reverse stainless steel body clip Question

The less “noise” we create about the lights to be done, the smoother the process will go!

Thumbs Up

I have made the necessary updates, and we are awaiting for final test results from LT. We could ensure that all specifications will be clearly presented and vetted before we proceed with our preorder.

In with Sst20 but surely it can’t only be 6500k available? Why not 5000k at least?

Thanks for making the updates freeme Wink
I guess that way it will be more transparent for people that are interested in this flashlight! We know that other specs are yet to be confirmed, but at least the ones I indicated were in need of correction.

About the GITD cigar grip, I am not a fan, I will be honest!
I’d be happier with a deep carry pocket clip such as the one made for the FW3A, that many other members also mentioned here.

Thanks for bringing this deal to us! Thumbs Up

This light would probably work with 219b’s, right?

not a fan of the cigar grip.

Depp carry clip gets my vote.

I LIKE that the button is large (looks same size as fw3a) and not scaled down to fit the new diameter. Makes for easier commands and looks great!

The 5000k SST-20s are puke green too, the only ones worth anything are the good binned 4000k and warmer.

This. Wonder if it’s the same as the FWXX buttons? I’ve got a few of the ToyKeeper versions that would be awesome on it.

Less real estate on the button end to press it down as you clip it into your pocket. More likely to turn it on in the process.

All the more reason to use the electronic lock out.

If my light needs electronic lockout in my pocket, it has failed as a pocket carry. I’m unwilling to bother with remembering to both lockout and unlock a light every time it’s in/out of my pocket, and worry about the consequences if I forget to do so, when exist alternatives that do not require such diligence. And personally I consider a “pocket burn” a rather severe consequence for something as simple as forgetting to quadruple-tap my light when I put it away.

I would use electronic lockout for storage in a bag or something, but at that point it’s just as easy to do a physical lockout on most lights (FW3A being a notable exception).
