According to u/barry_baltimore, Hank confirmed that there will be a clear optic choice and it will have more throw than the D4V2. He also said that it will be single channel.

I may get hate for saying this but I think it looks super ugly!

One for the Star Trek fans. The phaser flashlight. May just have to get one.

After some thought it is actually starting to make sense. With this design you can fit more emitters and it will still be comfortable in your pocket.

That could be an interesting design for a dive light if he’s able to make it sealed and able to withstand the pressure. That big screwed down bezel looks like you could put some heavy duty lens in there and a good mix of tints with an SST-20 or whatever to make a nice light for 100ft under water. Just a thought.

Interesting light.

Looks like a D4V2, but with a double-head with twice the emitters.

Emisar D8 maybe? Perhaps with 8,000 lumen output.

So, 4 floody leds in the middle and 4 throwy leds on the edges? Big Smile

The beam would be \m/ Big Smile

I love it. I hope it comes to fruition.

My only concern is the screw spacing, but that’s just OCD.

Hopefully it’ll have a charger built in behind the cap protected by the o-ring.

Four more and torx! Those just look better.

I am kind like it, but i wish Hank has a way to reduce the number of screws. Unless this is a diving grade light?

Torx makes a lot of sense on tiny screws. Not a fan of hex.

If a round bezel is one continuous screw, so there’s pressure all the way around, you need a lot of screws, or a VERY thick bezel.

The Hank lights are so much better than Astrolux. Worth the $10-$15 differential.

It’s interesting.

It looks like maybe it’d make a good bike riding light. Make it 2 × 21700 and have an option for elliptical TIR lens. Sadly I don’t believe Carclo makes elliptical TIR for 106 series assuming that’s what being used here.

my knee jerk reaction was i did not like it. But after reading ^ this comment, you are right! it is two quad optic sets of leds side by side, i didnt even see it at first. I will definitely buy this. Probably would be 6000+ lumens, and throw well. and fit in pocket well too.

I just hope he starts making battery tubes interchangeable, the only credit i can give to a company like astrolux over emisar. I think the k9.3 and k1 probably are, but d4s would be nice with the k1 tube, and this one all being the same. there is something i like about that.

Id buy this one

I thought that I did not like the front end, but after looking again it is the round rear that I do not like, does not fit the front. If the block shape was continued in the battery section, with perhaps two 18650’s next to each other fitted in, that would look way cool!

I like it. Flat enough for pockets. 8 LED’s of goodness. Highest out put XP-L’s and high CRI for the others. I’d like to see it in 21700 or 26650/26800. However that giant hand angle makes it look like 8 XP-G’s on a 18500. I could go for that one too.
