This is honestly the most interesting color in a long time, maybe ever. Now we need it for the sp10 pro

Definitely. Some asked me a ways back if he could buy it from me, and I said nuh-uh. Think it was because of the color, not the light itself.

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.

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!

I really hate having to unlock my light to use it though.
And the E14 III has a really annoying series of flashes as it gets locked out which is unacceptable to me in certain situations.
Boo to lock out mode lol.
Ive never had my S2R Baton II or SC31pro turn on my pocket.
Mechanical tail switches are too stiff for me, and really irritate the nerves connecting to my thumb. (I have some mild nerve issues in my dominant arm/hand)
I think the typical side e-switches found on lights like the FC12 used as a tail switch might be just what I’ll find to be perfect to my liking.

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.
