Why no compact 18350 lights with Anduril? Thrunite T1 w/ Anduril would be lovely

I really like Anduril UI.

I recently bought a Thrunite T1 during Amazon Prime day and really like the form factor, beam profile and tint, feel in my hand and two way clip.

What I don’t like is that the UI doesn’t allow direct access to the low end of the ramp from moonlight or from off, unless low was the last used level before switching off.

I’d also like a lighted side switch similar to the Sofirn SC31 Pro, so I can find it in the dark.

Why doesn’t anyone make a light like this?

Just changing the T1 UI to allow direct access to low from off, regardless of what level it was turned off in, would be a huge improvement.

Have you considered the D4V2 w 18350 tube and High CRI? !http://toykeeper.net/torches/emisar-d4v2/rainbow.gif!

Thanks for the suggestion.

That appears to sort of fit the bill, but my impression is that it would not capable of deep carry with the pictured clip, doesn’t have the two-way clip and would end up costing a lot more.

Does it have a lighted switch option?

I really like the feel of the T1 in the hand.

I’ll keep the D4V2 under consideration.

I tried a short tube on my SC31 Pro and it was much longer than the T1 and didn’t have the two way clip and no magnetic tail cap and a much more focused beam pattern than the T1.

I’m not comfortable ordering from aliexpress.

then EDC18 + 18350 tube + Dual Position Deep Pocket Clip (short + magnet, and wide beam, lots of LED to choose, but no USB C charging), make shure that you order the bunny logo switch one.

there was a EDC18 batch with dark switch, because of that bunny energizer thing.

Ti is sexy and light, but I want better heat dissipation than Ti offers. Aluminum is preferred.

Some variant of that light is still under consideration.

ther is a copper EDC18 + copper 18350 tube, looks good. Well I even have copper EDC18, but no copper 18350 tube. It's heavy, not suitable for EDC, and no magnet.

Lumintop EDC18 (aluminum), w/SST20 4000K, 95+HCRI, and optional 18350 short tube.

Very happy with this as an EDC. I will say that I do appreciate the EDC18’s Anduril-1 UI. Customizable to turn on and ramp from very low moonlight. The SST-20 4000K, 95+ HCRI, slightly floody, is also very nice!

You will also need to purchase a two-way clip to replace the original, and source the lit “bunny version”.

What I don’t like is that the UI doesn’t allow direct access to the low end of the ramp from moonlight or from off, unless low was the last used level before switching off.

==but anduril does that, press and hold from off, goes directly to lowest ramp configuration setting

you have to hold about half a second, longer than just a ‘click’

?

what am i missing?

There’s plenty of options that have short tubes available – D4v2, KR4, FW3A, etc…

He may have overlooked manual memory, which can be freely adjusted.

but it does not depend on memory, mine will always enter at the lowest level set, regardless of the last mode, if i just press and hold from off

While not a side switch, I’ve got a shorty body on my FW1A Pro.

Not Anduril but I’ve got a shorty body on my D4 too.

Both are super compact.

The Thrunite T1 doesn’t have Anduril – that’s the light that I was referring to in the OP.

I like everything about it, except the UI and lack of lighted switch.

Deep carry clip from an FW1A.

I wish Hank had designed the short tube like the long one. No need for a knurling, but it would have looked so much nicer imo.
