Welcome to BLF JLHAWAII808! Great ideas RobertB!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I’ve bought 15 or more lights from Jackson. He has great service typically shipping same day. He’s in Hawaii and I get my Hank lights and Fireflies fast.

I’ve seen more Hank lights here than anywhere else.

It wouldn’t have happened if they had a brand name like any other brands.
They only have product line names : Emisar and Noctigon, and their weird ass website name : intl-outdoor, or is that supposed to be the brand ?

They have a brand name “Emisar” with model numbers like everyone else has.

Then why their new website is noctigon.com with the name ”Noctigon-Emisar flashlight” if the brand is Emisar ?

I’m inclined to agree with thefreeman on this one, Hank Wang sells nearly identical quad emitter lights, where the one with a side switch is in a product line called Emisar (the D4V2) and the one with a tail switch is in a product line called Noctigon (the KR4).

I think users don’t want to juggle those names, so they’re looking for an overall company name to use, e.g. something like “Convoy” and all they can come up with is intl-outdoor.com which is super confusing to new forum members.

So calling them Hanklights is akin to calling Grogu “Baby Yoda.” Sorry guys, you didn’t tell us a character name for too long, and no one was using “the child”—it was too non-descript, so Baby Yoda it is.

Hey Jackson, if you want to do advertising here as well there’s a commercial seller’s spot
Your store has good reviews whenever I’ve heard it mentioned. Can’t say that for everyone Neal

Exactly, there is no overall brand to refer to, so “Hank Light” became the placeholder. Parametrek has to refer to them “INTL Outdoor” because of this, even though it’s obviously not meant to be an actual brand.

I guess we should ask Hank for clarification and his preferences about all this. Both sites are somewhat sloppy in terms of the usual business information…often you can deduce something by reading stated Terms and/or Privacy Policies, and in his it is stated “Int’l Outdoor” stuff, but that may not mean anything here. Doesn’t seem so hard to just state Noctigon or Emisar based on which light someone is talking about…not sure why there is confusion or the need to say “Hank lights”…but everyone knows what’s being conveyed anyway.

Prices on cells and accessories and many lights seem awfully high compared to CONUS sources. Is there a benefit for stateside customers to order from Hawaii as opposed to someone else other than faster shipping times vs. direct from China? Or are you aiming at serving other countries/markets?

The name calling isn’t very cool “hivemind juvenile”,,, but I’m not easily triggered. I’m 44 so I should be flattered.

Personally I’ve been into lights for a long time. I started like many years ago with Maglite, moved onto Surefire for many years, then got into building P60,s including Noctigon drop ins from Hank in 2015. I only recently discovered Emisar / Noctigon and realized they were made by the same fella (Hank Wang) that I was buying P60 drop ins from all those years ago. I still have one in Nichia 219B 3500k M/L/M/H that I still adore and use. This forum has always been my “go to” for learning and or researching new lights and emitters because there are so many knowledgeable folks here. I also bought several Sofirns this year because I’m trying to switch up all my users to Anduril so the UI sticks in my head better. My personal interactions with Jackson have made it very easy to keep buying more lights than I need. He’s definitely an enabler haha.

I am on Reddit and it’s rarely call Hank lights. We just say the model number like NLD D4V2 219B… Hanklights is just the subreddit name. I think we refer people to email Hank because he replies email from Hank Wang. It’s personal and not just another CS. We request lighted button and off menu customize from Hank because that’s the guy who answer emails. Hank.

I mostly agree but “Hank Lights” is at least accurate while Baby Yoda is literally inaccurate.
