Or will the companies all scramble to fill orders that have been backing up?
I’d love to see what designs our favorite flashlight companies have up their sleeves in the year of the pig.
I’m hoping for more 21700-based lights with a nice combination of flood and throw and also smaller 18650 lights for edc. Not necessarily hot rod/pocket rockets, but something that’ll fit in a pocket easily but still have some “oomph” over AA-sized lights.
I think we’ll always see new lights from the known brands. There are some exciting new emitters in the market and the 21700 flashlight format, as you eluded to, has not been fully rolled out yet.
Still wish Convoy would bring a AA sized light.
There may be an intentional delay for new products until the trade war agreement can be resolved.
It is hard to design something without knowing what the actual street price will with all the variables in play.
When the dust settles there should be a flurry of activity.
Here’s hoping it is soon.
I was sent the message that because of the Chinese New Year they are off for a month and would be back on the feb 12th.
This was a message from AliExpress, or maybe just a seller of the flashlights and batteries I’m buying
Not that I know off, Agro!
It is more a wishful thinking from me in this case, and was to follow the GT4 pointed by BlueSwordM !
Still, it would be a nice surprise to see a light like that coming out! (after the FW3A, of course )
I don’t think there is anyone here who doesn’t have a charger, but muggles are far less likely to have them, particularly li-ion so placing USB charge ports on flashlights could/should make them more popular.
