    Thumbs up Improved Raw Kit

    These have been sold like this for the past couple of months, but it has not been made common knowledge. Nor has the web site been updated (Yet).


    Improvements:
    Longer Threads, Total of 5.5 complete rotations before the two half's come apart.
    Also means no thread is visible when off.

    Milled Means of Attachment (MOA), Stolen from the Raw Ns Designer!

    PRCR2 as standard (Protected Li-ion) 350 Mah which provides a good 20mins on High before cut off.

    Redesigned Nano charger.

    Best of all:Still the same price & We have stock

    The nano charger appears a more stylish design. On inspection of the insides, there is also an improvement to the quality.
    Oh & the Nano sticker does not fall of anymore.

    Another addition to the Web site are comprehensive instructions for the Raw Series. Here:http://www.theorb.co.uk/technical.php
    Big Thanks to lightlust (VG) For this. I owe him some lights

    Does this mean if we order the Raw 1-watt or 3-watt from the website, we'll get this new-style Raw automatically?

    The newer style Raw kits are great, I really love the improvements. Just a little "polish" on a great design made them supurb little lights.

    If you mean can you just buy the Case (Metal work front & Rear) & install the inner workings from your existing Raw, Then the answer is yes.
    Go here for Raw spare parts:

    Hi Marc,

    We do not sell these or any lanyard Yet! But a small spilt ring & nano clip seems to be the best solution.

    Now this is good news and exactly what I have needed to be able to carry my RAW. The original one seemed to be very loose when carried as it had such a small portion of the threads holding when it was turned off.

    I do plan on buying the upgraded body for my internal parts. My question is do I need to purchase both the front and rear body sections or will the rear section of the original screw into the new front end section with more threads for security?...Ok nevermind that question as I really want the rear section as well as I just noticed it has the improved lanyard attatchment. I am preparing my order shortly and thanks for the improvements. It does make a nice product very much nicer.

    Are the body sections available for shipment immediately?
    Is that an ARC in your pocket or are you just small like that?

    1 New style body top section
    1 New style body bottom section
    1 spare PCB board
    1 spare UCL
    1 spare heatsink

    My plan is to use the new body with my current RAW internals and to put one of my own emitters on the spare PCB ordered. I will have a working RAW with the new style body and also use the spare ordered parts in my old body to have 2 complete lights. My old style body will be complete however minus the 2 stage switch.

    Thanks for the new products Rob. I do not think I added my CPF user name to my PayPal order however I have ordered from you before so you should have all of my info on file.

    Let me know if any of the spare items I ordered are not in stock and thanks again.

    I just tried to access my history on my PayPal account and was informed the site is down for maintenance. I sent PayPal and received a receipt however it did not seem to clear my shopping cart on your site. You may or may not have received my payment.

    Please let me know if there was a problem and if so I will re-send my payment.

    Got your mail Rob and I am happy to see my payment made it to you. I am so excited about this new body however I do believe the original will someday be a classic. I have had nothing but good performance from all of my Orb products and I am sure this one will raise the bar that much higher for others.

    Just when you thought it could not get any better....this will be a very hard act to follow I am sure....Thanks again

    Hello Rob,

    Have you seen this thread http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...d.php?t=114471

    I was going to send a body to them to see how the HA3 would look.

    Yes thanks, I have just had a look. We are sending samples to our local anodizer soon. I have had a head ache with anodising in the past so not that keen on reliving the experience. I also think that bare aluminium is the best colour for aluminium
    Regardless we will try some samples.
    BTW the Reason I do the Raw Ns & Ti's is for the user who requires a harder wearing product with out the need for other finishing methods.

    Is there any chance of asking for an upgrade to a "U" bin for the appropriate consideration? (I am right in thinking that all the current run are "T" bin as standard, aren't I?)

    That statement about the PRCR2 giving 20 minutes on high before cutoff...does that refer to the 1w version? I haven't been keeping up (well, just a little) on all the RAW biz, but the last I remember, we were gettin' 12 minutes per charge. Have the numbers changed now that protected cells are available?

    You can order via the web site, & pay £6 for a Tritium vial to cover the cost of the U bin upgrade. If you send an email to state this as well you will get the U bin upgrade.

    Hi,

    A few questions re UWOJ/UXOJ verses the standard TWAJ:

    I understand that U bin gives greater brightness (~100 lumens), but what is the effect of U bin on:

    run time?

    operating temperature?

    Apart from brightnesss, how do the UWOJ & UXOJ differ from the TWAJ?

    TIA,
