Don’t know if anyone has mentioned this light, but I thought I would - I’m going to have a crack at one as they look like they nailed it!
I like headlamps but hate having to wear one for work as they are uncomfortable, sweaty and give you bed hair :UGHH: (I work in a more corporate environment)
Tell me what you think - I know lots will say nice light but can I have it with Nichia/ABC,K U P X tint etc :FACEPALM: O:) (us tint snobs can change them out) Though I would have liked it to have 21700 battery DARKFADE
I see what you are saying but, what I like in is you can turn the light to the perceived brightness you want then turn the light on knowing at what brightness-ish it will come on at.
I can never remember at what brightness I left my ramping at or output selected level on stepped IU’s. And with say Ramping, you have to stop to reverse back down or up, which is a pain. The next closest easy on to your required output would be a magnetic control ring light.
Sorry for being so negative but I don’t see anything on that light that would make me pay $129, or even 20% more. Forget about the 21700, it probably has a fixed custom battery of (guessing) 600 mAh. The only feature I like is that I don’t have to mess with a pencil or stone to get the light a bit tilted upward. And the slick presentation, of course!
I wonder what they want to patent on this, as all mentioned features already exist elsewhere, although not together in one flashlight.
There is no way to file a patent on state-of-the-art, at least not in a legal way.
This statement of “patent pending” and the threatening tone with “zero tolerance” alone makes the whole project questionable, especially as any pending patent may be declined in the process, so threatening before having a patent is quite unwise.
Let’s see when they are forced to throw all the money they have into court trials.
Maybe that’s why the price is so ridiculously high.
There is a difference between not cheep and overpriced and this light is overpriced for what you get....
Zebralight is also USA based and sell for about half price.
about the concept It is not really different from magnetic switch, ring switch or even regular ramping
Things I like, the (extra Alu clip) that’s adjustable that looks like you can make it up or down carry and slide it to you preferred depth. You can get a magnet necklace to attach light to your front for instant hold. Removable 18650 battery. Programable via USB-C to change output (eg moonlight mode) accelerometer settings etc
I am not impressed. If it was priced around $40 it would be worth getting one just to check it out. At the full price of ~$160, it is just not worth it. Simply not compelling enough!
I wish them luck, but they won’t be getting my money.
