    Same here with my Ti Wee, not even nanolube has helped much. My NS Wee is butter smooth.

    Unfortunately Titanium threads are never as smooth as the Nickel silver Threads which are just silky smooth.
    Lubricants are necessary with Titanium.
    The next run of Raw Ti we have halved the pitch on the Thread to create a finer thread that does give a smoother feel. So lessons learnt for any more future Ti Threads

    Wee is almost ready to purchase via the lummi site here:
    http://www.lummi.co.uk/wee.php
    The cart is not working at the moment so I am still taking orders via email & direct Paypal payment.
    Hopefully the cart will accept orders by the end of the week.
    Plenty of stock of the Wee NS & Wee Ti

    Are the emitters going to be availabe on the site, too, for those of us who can neither decide between the 25, 50 and 80 nor justify buying three?

    I recently received the Orb Wee NS (50) from Lummi, have the beam shots here the Quality of beam is very good, it has hotspot, primary side spill and secondary side spill.

    I'm ready to buy one Still one question : how do you charge the battery? AW, the supplier of the cells, says "use 10-20mA coin cell charger" but where to get these? A standard charger (R123, nano,...) will put way too much current through the cells when charging, so I wonder where to buy a suited charger which will not damage the cell.

    It's also possible to use the nano charger with spacers. Works great.

    IMO, the 50lm version is the perfect compromise. The 80lm is nice and bright and good for show, but runtime is only 15 minutes. The 25lm is nice for the 90 minute runtime, but it's a little weak on output for walking or using outdoors. It is excellent for reading if that's what you'd hand it around your neck for. I think something in the middle of the 25lm and 50lm would be ideal -- about an hour runtime and more output than the 25, but then again how many choices does one really need

    I carry my Wee Ti 80lm and the 25lm LM in my pocket. My wife carries a Wee NS 50lm.

    How do you carry the extra LE? I chose to wear my 25 around my neck which has been great!... hands free and head tilt free downward beam

    Wee Ti 50 is the choice around my neck. Good for all-sorts & enough run time.
    The 80 does provide 15mins to approx. 50%.

    But yes you can purchase the LE of choice only for £10, now via paypal/email.
    Or when the web site is completed.

    Now that it's working, how does one order an extra light engine on your website?

    Also, is the 50 Lumen LE the default for both the NS and the Ti models? It's a little unclear.

    Thanks Rob!

    Like you say it kinda working but not finished.
    Default is 50 & we still need to add the option for LE's.
    Hopefully by the end of this week we will be there...

    Yes! I finally made order for 2 Wee NSs. Although I just made payment this morning, I guess I will check my mailbox everyday starting tomorrow ridiculously hoping that they will arrive..... even though I live in Singapore!

    I forgot to ask when I ordered the Wee, ia rhe rechargeable cell protected or unprotected? I remember reading that it can be dangerous to recharge an unprotected cell if it runs down to low.

    by the way.. what is this unprotected and protected battery that u guys are talking about? i'd done some searching but still don't understand. can someone explain to me in a very simple non-tech term? i too want to avoid damaging my battery and light. thanks.

    there are a TON of battery threads specially in the Flashlight Electronics section...its worth heading over there to go thru the FAQ's and sticky's it will explain a Lot

    But to break it down simply...the Wee uses 10180 unprotected battery(there are no protected or primary batteries for this size)
    Follow all standard li-ion operating procedures/cautions when charging/using this batt...if the proper care is taken as it should be for any kind of lithium batts...there should never be a problem

    did u get the charger? guess u need a charger for it too.. although other brands may work well for it too. anyway i got myself 25lumens too, i would have chosen 50lumens had it not been for the short battery life. but the 25lumens is nice too hopefully we can upgrade the LED in future when a bigger capacity battery is available

    Glad your enjoying it ruri It hasn't left my neck either in over a month(except for showers heh can't get a good scrub with it hanging from the neck)

    The twisty case that comes with the normal Raw makes for an AWESOME battery carrier...it can fit the nice combination of 1-RCR123 & 1-10180 batteries or 1-14250 & 1-10180... I have each batt inside it's own little mini plastic bags to give it even more protection...that way I'll always have a spare batt for my Wee/Raw in a compact water resistant case
    If its only for daily usage...only having 1 spare batt should be perfectly fine and give you More than enough runtime even w/ the 50lm, 80lm LE's on the Wee not to mention being able to carry a spare batt for my Raw Ti and/or 1x123 light.
    Lighthound has those orb twisty cases btw but you can get one from Rob also but since it would be international shipping...you might as well order yourself a Raw or SoR and get a free case with it
