I am REALLY REALLY interested in this proposed FC12s !! 

 

If the  FC12 only had a side switch and as a result was ~12-18mm shorter, and was available with sft40 AND ALL OF THOSE COLORS you mentioned, I I would buy at least 5 LOL LOL

also with Anduril KR4 Anduril 2, either one!

 

i really want to like the fc12, the purple is one of the nicest colors I have for flashlight, but the user interface and very long body length make it unusable for me. I bought for my wife bc of the awesome purple but it's much too big for her, and I don't use it at all because the UI, length, and tail switch for on/off.. 

 

PLEASE MAKE THE FC12s, wjth side switch only and in Christmas RED and GUN METAL GRAY and CHAMPAGNE! 

thank you Wurkkos for coming to us at BLF and asking for our thoughts and input, you are among the top in the community of manufacturers for doing that.

I am also very interested in the FC12S for the same reason because it is now too long, I would like it at least 20mm shorter and I would like a magnet in the tail.

FC12S if could find a TIR Optics for this model , maybe more interesting?we are trying get a TIR for this small head TIR Optics Side switch SFT40 Reverse charging Magnet tail

 

Wurkkos - 

 

I like the idea of the TIR optic, please make it a readily available SIZE for those of us who may want to try different optics in the future after we buy the NEW FC12s.

 

Optic with sft40 in this small light i think would be better match than the reflector, although reflector is still nice too.

 

There is company on AliX that makes (or sells) small optics - Yajiamei, although I don't know if there optics are Deep Enough for the FC12 deep reflector cavity. But they 17mm wide that work great in Olight S2R2.

I have the fc12 and I love it. What sold me on the fc12 vs. the fc11 was the higher lumen output and throw distance. However I would find the magnetic tail cap to be of much better use to me. In conclusion, the sooner the fc12s is out the better.

Wurkkos – how about a tail e-switch only 18650 tube light with Anduril 2?

Id like to see this aswell, but using the same e-stwitch as the HD20.
My Manker MC13 & E14 III’s tail e-switches are way too easy to accidently activate.
I imagine the same is true for similar tail e-switch lights like Noctigon and Lumintop.
This way you could also keep the lighted battery inidicator.

I always lock out my lights when not in use so have never had an accidental tail switch activation. The tail e-switch on the KR1 is great, just need a smaller head diameter!

Ohh, definitely interested. Love my FC11, would love a similar light with more output and for when I don’t need anything high CRI.

Edit: Now I need an FC12S in grey to compliment my FC11 and newly acquired FC12 Big Smile

Oh, man, this is really hard one.
I really like TS21 which has nice 3 sst-20 providing high cri and balanced power/runtime, it’s probably a good idea to make FC12S more like TS21 with SFT-40 to provide more throw for throw lover Big Smile
TS21 comes with TIR len, so it’s pretty short compared to FC11, even TS21 is using 21700.

@Wurkkos is there any news on the FC12s? If/when it’s likely to be released and what the specs will be?

Wurkkos, I really wish you would consider making the WK02 in the Pink and Champagne colors. I think this would make them very popular, and I know I would buy a few more for gifts.

How long to wait for FC12S? I really want to buy a new flashlight with USB-C and I’m interested in your brand. I would like to know at least approximate dates.

Was about to pull the trigger on a FC12, but then I ran into this thread…. Anduril, a colour that’s not black and max 30 usd. Count me in!

Btw, would love to get some flash pads on the driver. Or even better, since it has a USB port for charging, it’s long overdue to be able to flash over USB (applies to many flashlights).

Just recently purchased the FC12 purple. I’m excited to receive it. Wurkkos, I’m looking forward for that FC12s, definitely will add that to my collection. Make it cheaper as well.

This is a better idea. TS21 with a SFT40 and purple too. Give it Anduril 2. I don’t mind a side or tail switch. I have a Sofirn IF22A, TIR lenses looks great and it’ll be more compact compared to a traditional reflector. Reverse charging is really not needed but good to have. A compact single emitter 21700 light with lots of color option is a killer. For the price, It’d be good if it’s priced around $30-$35 without battery.
