Interesting concept. A lot of the crowd here are also interested in high cri. Is that something you can do?

Welcome to BLF, Natfire!

Nice, I hope that this 4000K is a neutral tint around the Black Body Line. There was one 4000K LEP flashlight 3 years ago, the Acebeam W10 (not many were sold), and that one was very ugly yellow. I will not buy this one if the tint is overly yellow.

Yes, I would be interested in a LEP with CCT around 4000K. Would be great if the color (tint) was close to the blackbody line (i.e. warm white as opposed to a yellow like a canary!) Would be fantastic if the light was high CRI!

Really would be all about the throw/size ratio for me. Warm tint is great, but not so much a yellow tint. LEPs role is primarily ranged throw, with that being said, I dunno how much high CRI would be of use at or above 1000 meters. Although warmer temps penetrate fog and smoke much better than copl temps. What price range we talking? Under $100 would make it significantly more appealing and lots would buy it for that price as an entry level LEP.

Just to be clear, my personal interest is based on an assumption that the price for this 4000K LEP would be not far from the current price of their existing LEP which I just purchased today for a little less than $80 USD

I think the majority of the LEP crowd are mostly attracted to max range, and that’s only possible with higher CCT. I’d rather see adjustments to the existing SF2. The UI needs improvement and I’d like a removable 21700. Having a built in battery isn’t very good.

The SF2 is crazy good for $75 with a coupon.

High: 1,425m
Med: 1,052m
Low: 794m

Build quality is also decent

I'm down with this! We need an LEP with Anduril 2!

I hope that’s a joke. What use is an LEP with Anduril? Only needs Low, Med, High and High only.

Acebeam originally had the W30 with 3 models. Cool white, 4000k yellow, or CRI (unspecified k). Weltool had the W3 pro in white or yellow. The Weltool W4 was available in cool white initially then they added an optional yellow filter. Then they offered a yellow version without the filter. I have the W30 4000k yellow and I suspect it is better with mist, fog ,smoke or dust and various other backscatter scenarios, but I do not have a cool white to compare it to. I am reluctant to try any other cool white lep because I don’t think I’m going to like them. I can understand why some people think the yellow looks ugly in pictures on close walls or objects. The reality is that most people are not buying a LEP to look at close objects. I do wonder if there is a real world difference when there is little/no moisture or dust in the air. This Natfire appears to have slightly more divergence than some others which I suppose for some applications may be better but then the throw numbers come down. Yes I would like a 4000k yellow Natfire.

You can't compare the big flashlight in the sky to the little flashlight in your hand.

Measuring a LEP or any flashlight with a meter at 10 to 20 ft does not take into consideration real world atmospheric conditions or other surroundings. These measurements are useful but they don’t tell the whole story.

Yes, but since I’m reviewing it for them, it’s good to have for comparing to other models.

4000K will easily outperform cooler tints in haze, fog, high humidity, is there really a high demand for an LEP like this.

I’d be more for an LEP at 4000K that has a 25.4mm body to mount on a gun. Hunters would be very keen for that at this price point

I would buy one if it is below 100$. 4000K sounds very good if it is not too yellow.

I like the yellow color idea. I would like red or green colored LEP as well!

Thank you for listening!

As long as “advanced payment” comes with a discount

I think the idea is that they are uncertain if making a 4000K LEP flashlight is worth making at all, this thread is for them to gain some confidence that is worth it. That confidence comes with people showing interest, and with people showing so much interest that they may pay in advance if it looks good. A discount is always nice, but if the outcome of this thread is just that the light is made at all, that will be the primary benefit for us.

Thanks for asking Smile But it is unclear to me whether ‘yellow’ = ‘white light with a neutral (4000K colour temp)’ or ‘yellow’ = ‘yellow light with a wavelength around 570-590nm’.

If it’s 4000K then i might be interested but it would depend on other things such as size, modes, battery options, and price.
If it’s 570-590nm then i’m not interested.

“Yellow” is often used in chinese websites to refer to neutral and warmer white tints. I think (hope) that this is the case here too.

I think you’re right, especially as they specify 4000K, but i would prefer to be certain.

Fairly certain it would just be their SF2 LEP with a 4000K module

“yellow “ would be worth nothing, too narrow spectrum, no colour rendering.

A real 4K with 90+ CRI would be useful. Higher CRI makes objects and colours more clear at lesser lux power.

Such a LEP would actually be useful for search and rescue, while a low CRI LEP of today is just a dangerous toy.

Nowadays, science is only meant to monetize nature. This, combined with human greed and hostility, will lead to catharsis sooner than later.

Today’s LEPs are still excellent for mounting to stop glare off the barrel and suppressor. Low CRI yellow still beats cool white in fog, rain, haze etc

Natfire should develop an LEP that can be mounted and at these prices they’d be in business

Oh, yeah, again part of a weapon… no learning, whatsoever.
Let’s hope the recoil will shatter the entire assembly at first try.

Just because.

Humans are too stupid to survive themselves, their own greed, their own hostility, so carry on optimizing weapons.

Everything nowadays gets perversely used as part of a weapon, or a fundamental technology to base weapon technology on.

Is there nothing to learn?

Please do not make any more LEP, they’ll be perverted as a weapon. And if you do make them, buy some soap and cold water to wash your bloody hands in.

Yes, but with a massive drop in range I’m sure. Any filter does that

From my measurements, I'm getting around 60-63% of light, but well that's still over 1500m range with my WP3.
So now the question is, will you make yellow LEP with much greater range than 1500 m?
