I am not sure if this is the right place to share my Sky Lumen Nguyen Flashlight Project. If its not let me know and I will move it. My team and I have been working on this project for about 1 year now. There were delays here and there but I think we are finally almost there and I am very excited to share it with all. I am not trying to sell anything in this thread. However if you are interested in the project you may email me at SkyLumen54@gmail.com for more info. I also understand there are tension between CPF and BLF but I do hope that reside elsewhere but not between flashlights enthusiasts worldwide. I am just here to share a common passion with all. Cheers!
Unpotted light engine - Let’s see if driver can take the hits
Proto V3 is made of 6065 Aluminum not 7075 Aluminum: Not as tough as 7075 but a bit better heat sinking.
First run of 30 lights will be 7075. 2nd run of 30 will likely be 2011.
Testing light engine will be a Quad White 2 + DriverVN4 + FS54 + Copper Retainer. Set to a simple 2 level for function check.
Dual Orings on both ends of the body installed
Triple Orings on body installed
heavy Duty 2.25mm thick Blue boot installed
NO-OX-ID electrical conductive lube over all Orings except for the 3 on body
Dual side Antireflective 3mm tempered glass
Optional suspension flat oring behind glass installed
Standard matte Ti pocket clip. Screws and clip glued in place.
HA III finished. Production body parts will be sandblasted before HA III over for uniform look & gold alodyned over threads to prevent corrosion.

Manker 21700 5000mAh Protected
Loaded weight 11.5oz

I would like to know more about the emitter options. Saw at CPF that there will be a 14 emitter option. Is that going to be E21A or 3535 emitters? Also please keep an eye out for BlueSword’s dream bin LH351D emitter. I would like those very special emitters to make this light even more special.
I got this budget Infared Thermometer on Amazon for number 5 heat test. Seems off. For example my wall seem colder than 72F and, my skin less warm than 88F, a metal surface I heated up that is burning to the hand was only 200F, icecream in the freezer at a low 17F. I guess worst case we will just use it as a guidance on temp changes rather than accuracy. I am sure someone here got one right? Are these numbers way off?
