I feel very lucky to be a part of the BLF Manker A6 GB that Bugsy36, et all have produced, and want to thank them for all the effort that went into making that light happen. I am new to collecting flashlights and I am now in the mood for a budget thrower like the Courui D01. Before I buy one, I thought I might ask if it would be possible for BLF to again work magic and develop a light with our specs, driver, etc and create a budget big head thrower? If so, I would totally wait while something like that was developed.
Is something like this possible, or am I overlooking what it would take to make something like this?
Please make mine in XP-L HI (3A tint) with the same driver used in the A6/X6 group buys. - I dunno if that’s possible with the side E/Switch??? - Whatever, as long as it Throoooows!
The biggest problem with the stock light is the 2A draw - A Big Beautiful Beast like that at 2A? - That SUCKS!
Yeah, I could probably practice Ruining things for a year or two and then Mod my own, but I’m Old and will probably forget what it is I’m supposed to be learning long before my training period is up:-(
I’m the Proud new owner of a MicroBlueBear K40M, and it could really, really use a Throw-Buddy!
Thanks for considering this, O’ Nobel Ones that have the power to bring things to pass…
We could ask Manker what they could do for us EDIT: they dropped the ball on the SE A6…. If we are going to do a group design/group buy they have been awesome on the SE A6 (until production happened). Perhaps see if they can clone the Courui and give us what we want?
Though I love to say Courui… BLF big headed thrower has a nice ring to it as well….
XP-L HI is easier than a factory dedome, definitely on copper DTP. I would want a reflector thrower, I have not yet begun to get into the “lens” lights…
I like a multiple side by side 18650; dual, triple, quad doesn’t matter as long as it is not long….
The A6 driver is good, but there is a member here working on the other Atiny chips that have thermal step down available as well as much more programming room…. That could be a very nice feature….
EDIT: What would be very cool would be a matching Mini version in 14500 or 10440, you said dream right?
You talking about THIS one? Then perhaps we should start designing around something like this and have a goal…. Say 1000 meters for the beam?
I have a ringy Jacob A60, so would prefer a BLF SE Courui!!!
Finally a small version of C8 style with AA/14500 that’s right!!!
Or simpy a small Corui (with dual switch) always in AA/14500….I like so much!!!
C’mon proud guys of BLF, make this dream happen!!! :bigsmile: :bigsmile:
While I don’t like carrying big multi-cell lights much, I love using them. They work for me for camping or hiking as long as I’m taking a bag along anyway.
My friend was dumbfounded when we were camping and able to light up trees half a mile across the lake without the need for binoculars with a couple of my throwers. That was during the blue moon on a cloudless night, so there was a lot of ambient moonlight even. There’s just something hugely impressive about that kind of range.
