Ages ago, I ordered a bunch of rgb blinkies in 5mm/T1¾ packages, that run off a “soft” voltage (never specified, but can run offa 3V, or 5V through a resistor).

Imagine someone makes smd versions of ‘em somewhere…

Yes! Make a pocket thrower but keep auxiliaries in the mix.

That white looks great.

It also doesn’t surprise me that it shows dirt and scratches easier. White seems to be less durable than blank or dark grey.

Other manufacturers usually use a light gray or creamy white.

I don’t know about durability but white anything will show dirt easily, especially if it’s a matte finish

MAO (white) is best suited for display pieces or “shelf queens”. Unless it’s clear coated, I can’t see it standing up to every day wear and tear as well as a good ano finish. A week in an active person’s pocket will likely burnish the high points, stain the finish, and look uneven from handling. My (now not functional) MAO Pioneman K36 is nice to look at, but I can already see some spotty discoloration just from the minimal handling it’s had.
If I buy an MAO TS10, it would be as a curio. I would much prefer that silver ano finish from the first batch.

…in my humble opinion, of course. YMMV.

I noticed that the Cyansky P25 V2.0 MAO (review coming soon) has a grey colour with a marble pattern. It isn’t a plain white.

The threads became dark grey after a few weeks of use with lubricant. Sometimes I accidentally get the lubricant from the threads on the tube but it easily wipes off and hasn’t stained. The threads are smooth and it’s easy to get the tailcap on.

The pocket clip scratched the tube when I removed it and it exposed the aluminium. I noticed that some corners around the side switch have aluminium exposed.

I like the feeling if the MAO coating. It’s smooth but not slippery.

Micro-arc oxidation could produce a better coating compared to anodizing. I’m not sure of the exact MAO process that Cyansky and Wurkkos use.

Does the MAO process require more energy and need to take a longer time to produce a stronger coating?

On paper this finishing technique is supposed to be more durable than type III HA (abrasion as well as thickness). I don’t own a light yet with it but I’m a little confused at the replies I’ve gotten from Simon and a couple others as to the thickness of their MAO coatings. Numbers given to me are more like type II HA, which is what we most usually have on our lights and we know isn’t terribly durable. Type III is much more durable but we don’t get that as much in this hobby (even if they sometimes advertise it…ahem). MAO should surpass type III but who knows what they’re actually doing in the process. I’ve decided to wait on buying anybody’s MAO lights until I see how they do in use. Everyone is charging a premium price for it and I would be happy to pay that higher price if I could be assured that the coating is actually up to snuff and an improvement over anodizing (I mean, we know the coating is superior when done correctly, in other product categories). Info doesn’t add up right now. It’s not an easy thing to quantify at home, either, other than observation of wear over time.

From what I’ve read about other countries doing it, it’s less energy and also less pollution (anodizing is actually a pretty nasty process, chemically, all things considered). I suppose it varies by applicator, no idea who the folks that are doing it for Wurkkos, Convoy, etc are or if they may be doing a “reduced cost” process for looks.

Noctigons white finish I don't find very durable, but when I had a Manker mk38 in MAO White It did seem rather durable, at least against normal activity.

Aux light is controlled Anduril 2. You can turn it off. You can also set it to low or high.

Wurkkos, here are some _specific_ things you can do to make a better pocket clip, with a render to help illustrate. The clip shown below will function much better than the current pocket clip design. I hope you'll produce an updated pocket clip similar to this one shown below and include it with TS10, SP10 Pro, and HS05 in the future. If so, I hope you'll also make it available for purchase so people who have the old clip can buy the new clip easily.

I like this clip design a lot, it looks very good (well done tactical_grizzly) Thumbs Up .

I haven't seen Wurkkos comment on this directly. Wurkkos (or Wurkkos Terry) could you let us know if there is any chance that you will be producing a nice one way deep carry clip like this in the future?

This clip by Tactical Grizzly looks absolutely perfect!

I also like how he texture the TS10 to make it grippy.

Anodizing does bring pollution, all the oxidation factories in Shenzhen are no longer allowed to open, and relocated to neighboring cities

Aw, I was looking forward to the MAO white version, was holding back on buying a black one since I wanted both a black and a white one. I don't like silver anodization. MAO done right should be very durable, yes it does "scratch" easily but most times it's not actual scratches but actually the other material getting scraped off and sticking to the white surface (especially if the "scratches" are a dark color). A pencil eraser or some cleaning with a brush can get it off again to some extend. I have a white Noctigon DM1.12 and a white Convoy T4 and I love them both.

I notice that the aux-LED will always turn ON when the main light is ON, no matter if the aux-LED state is in the Off/Low/High/Blinking state.

For instance, use 7 clicks (in Advanced mode) to set the aux-LED to OFF state.

Now if I hold the flashlight to turn it on in Lowest brightness, I notice that the aux-LEDs are also lit up.

(this behavior is actually similar to side button LED of Anduril flashlights, when the side-button light “sort of tracks” the power consumption (Low -> High side button brightness, after crossing the regulated level (usually a blink in the middle of ramping).

(This is unlike the real “RGB aux-LED” behavior such as in the Emisar D4v2, where the aux-LED will turn Off, when the main light is ON)

The first batch of MAO already in assemble now, will update for sale in 1-3 days . I was mean would not love do the next batch Smile

This is a known bug. There’s already and updated firmware available and Wurkkos will be using it on future production runs.

Judging by the voiced demand, MAO should be very successful sales wise. The TS10 is a wonderful light in any color.

I second this – I will likely directly get the white MAO ts10 (it just looks great, and i held off on getting a ts10 for this).
You will see wear on ‘normal’ anodization as well, that’s just a part of using/carrying a tool. Worry about keeping the light in pristine condition shouldn’t be bigger with a MAO finish imho.
