    Hi,




    1 Killer TiAAA, Black Hematite ALTiN PVD, standard driver (40mA)


    Well, I chose black since it has been my favourite colour ever since I was a little Gherkin (must be my hat ). I am really looking forward to this little beauty!

    Hi Fred,
    I've watching this thread for the last 6 months....very nice unit.
    I just have to ask - would you consider a run of 2 cell units with a nice pocket clip. They would be very stylish EDC's for some of us who wear jackets at work. The 1 cell lights are a bit short and don't sit nicely in a coat pocket. A 2 cell model could look like a very nice pen.....what do you think?

    Interesting idea. You could even make a 1-cell extension, with a nice clip, to screw in between the regular body and head.

    Of course, this may require a different driver to handle the increased voltage.

    Doesn't Streamlight make something like that already?

    The problem is the Ti--drilling skinny holes that are more than 5X the diameter of the battery bore is almost impossible. At the best, the machine shop would charge an arm and leg to do it.

    The bore for the AAA tube is 10.5mm and the depth is already at 50mm, to go another 45mm is asking for trouble. Sure it would be no problem in AL.

    And donn has another reason not to make the Killer longer--it would require a new driver.

    It's still an interesting idea. A 2-cell version would make a great jacket pocket or pocket-protector (for the geek squad) light.

    Making it in two sections would solve the long drilling issue, and if the appropriate driver could be found, it could be run as a 1 or 2-cell light.

    Well, I like my killers short, even though I, like Burt Lancaster (The Swede), am more on the tall side

    I dont think there is any comparison style-wize. I like Donn's idea but to avoid looking Geek it would need to be lens down.

    I kind of like the idea of a screw together longer Killer, but finding a driver than can handle from 1.2 to 3.6V might be a problem. I'll have to look around. Of course, we then need a clip to complete the package. At this rate, the Killer Pencil will be a tad expensive.

    My Black Hematite killer arrived at work today and it's so nice that my productivity has been cut by half

    I love the sturdy feel and overall looks, the Black Hematite colouring is great. Now I have to overcome my reluctance to actually put the Killer to duty on my key chain, it might get scratched

    Thanks a lot Fred, both for this great light and your fast service!

    Hypothetically, might it be possible to put the new 5-die LED (as offered on some of the latest fancily anodized Killers) into one of the standard AAA Killers with a 40mA driver? -nicer beam quality with long runtime and not too many lumens output...
    ...price increase associated with having such an LED in place of the Nichia?
    Also, do the new LEDs have a name??
    Thanks!

    The specs of the new five-die LED call for 100mA of drive current, so driving them at 40mA would most likely result in a beam that we would not be happy with.

    It isn't an option that I will be offering, so no worries on the pricing, eh?

    The name of the new LED is the five-die LED, or that's what I'm calling it.

    Seems worthwhile to mention that these are still available, as well as the Rainbow Killers.

    Fred,

    Are the PVD coated Killers available with the 5 die LED and 90mA driver? Thanks

    paintballdad,

    All I have left at the moment are the Rainbow AAA Killers, or the bare Ti AAA Killer, both of which have the 90mA driver and the 5-die LED.

    I hope to have some DLC coated Killers in about two months time.

    I'm not in a big hurry, looking forward to the DLC coated Killers.

    Does that mean the PVD coated Killers are done? The black hematite looks interesting.

    I think you will find the DLC coated Killers to be as nice, if not nicer, than the black hematite; the DLC will certainly be more durable.

    As for other PVD coatings, I don't think that will be happening.

    It would be cool to see a variety of surface treatments make their way to the DLC batch. Machine marks, polished, blasted, stonewashed. You might get some nice effects.

    BTW, I LOVE my Ti Killer and will be after another one at some point.
    Trees don't grow on money either.
