I really like the design, well done! I would like to know more about the Through Hole Cooling design. Perhaps there is like a cross section illustration?

That's 3 through holes, showing 6 eyelets. These holes are located within the platform below the MCPCB

If we set an indicator light, then of course there is no problem, it is not very complicated. For example, our upcoming T2R has an indicator light.
If the voltage is prompted by pressing the switch and the light flashes a few times, we think it is completely unnecessary and inaccurate.

Yes, I was talking about a simple red-orange-green or at least red-green solution. Not flashing the LED itself.

I’m looking forward to seeing your T2R.

Probably can't tailstand, I see no provision for attaching a lanyard.  An otherwise interesting light seriously compromised by those missing features.

T8 Plus knurling pattern is superb!

The T2 is positioned as an EDC, yet it comes with a tail switch. No tail stand? Come on… This is not how I use a EDC. For me, that alone makes it a pass.

The reason for the missing battery indicator seems obvious to me: The light works with either a single 18650 (3.7V nominal) or dual CR123s (6V nominal) or (presumably) dual 18350s (7.4V nominal). While it is easy to tell a 1 cell setup from a 2 cell setup, (< 4.4V = 1 cell, >= 4.4V = 2 cells), the useable voltage range of 2xCR123 and 2×18350 overlaps, so there is no bullet proof way to differentiate between those two scenarios.

I think, the design decisions that were made here, are not a good tradeoff for an EDC. Forget about 2 CR123s, add battery indicator, use side switch instead of tail switch, offer a selection of high CRI LEDs – that would make it a viable EDC.

 That's our F2R, and each product has a different audience. Different products meet different needs.

Hmmm – I cannot find a F2R – tried Weltool and Google. Can you please provide a link?

I though EDC was carrying stuff in your pocket, not tail standing on a shelf?

Now I know what I have been doing wrong all these years! I thought we would actually use this stuff. I was so stupid, I even put batteries in my EDCs. Now that you explained to us what EDC actually means, I will leave the batteries out, save money, carry less weight, and not worry about useability any more. Thank you so much!

another valid point – there’s nothing to stop the button being depressed if you’re going to carry it in your pocket, or elsewhere. A guard that is also a tail stand would make this much less of a problem, for pocket carry (or carry elsewhere)

I like the look of the T8 Plus; it has the protruding switch too though

The cooling system looks interesting – nice to see a new design element for cooling. I see that the light is splashproof; is water able to get inside through those cooling holes?

I’ve linked the image below from rizky_p’s review of the convoy S21D. It provides some protection to the button and doubles as a tailstand (albeit minus the lanyard). It still looks easily accessible too (even with gloves)

 Water can enter that through hole, but not inside the flashlight

Thanks. I thought that; I’m guessing there’s a sleeve in there.

If I’m tail standing one of my lights, it’s because it’s in use. If I have it just sitting on a shelf not being used, its standing on its head, to keep dust from getting on the lens.

Weltool T8 and T8Plus flashlights share the same light head, but the body and tail cover are different. T8 uses 1 18650 battery or 2 CR123A batteries, and T8Plus uses 1 21700 battery. This head adopts Weltool T-HC through-hole cooling structure, built-in high-density high-power LED, full power output of 2,100 lumens, 94,000 candela, and a throwing distance of 613 meters. There are 4 modes (low-high-medium-full power) to meet different usage needs. T8 and T8Plus are compact in structure and come standard with stainless steel pocket clips, which not only have strong long-range shooting ability, but also have a large lighting range with Strobe, especially suitable for outdoor exploration, tunnel work, rescue, inspection, etc.

Does the body of this light fits the LH8 head (used on W65B, W65C weapons light series)?
