    A Quark AAA with moonlight mode, 10440 support, same functions as the Fenix L0D, won't get too hot like the LD01 on 10440, but with a clicky... kind of a deadly combo!

    A quark 18650 running a MCE/P7/Osram 6die. In a nice tight EDC package in the tactical 2 stage programable flavor. If it's a MCE in a nice warm/neutral tone.

    A Quark 18650 with 3x XP-G behind a 20mm triple optic to keep things compact. 1035 emitter lumens for about 40 minutes on super-duper-turbo-awesome-wow-this-is-bright-mode, not bad! Ok, maybe they'll have to go the MagLED route with constant temperature regulation... Or a AAA/10440 with 1x XP-G which would be an awesome keychain light.
    Awesome! I just got the Luxoulree Z4 bin XD-Q! Wait... are you saying they released the Z5 bin the day after I bought it?

    Glad you started this thread CaNo! What Viper said +1 !

    But also I want:

    The warm white heads sold seperatly (both tactile and regular) .

    I want the 123x2 bodies sold seperatly so I can use the AA head with 17670 for long run time .

    I want the tactile tail switch sold seperatly .

    Any new led`s packaged in a head that will fit my existing bodies and sold seperatly (other than the the new quad light as I understand this may not be possible and still use the 18650 batt) .

    I want to be able to lego the heck out of them without having to buy whole new lights where ever possible...don`t want to hear "Can`t cause the threads are differant"

    18650 for sure, its the king of runtime/volume ratio for me. Especially with tactical interface and an MC-E 5A.

    I kind of wish they'd made the 123^2 18650 compatible, but not sure how much the additional thickness would affect the design.

    You know what, I'm surprised that nobody thought of making this thread before truthfully! lol

    That is a great concept though, a build-your-own lights kind of series. It would save you a lot of money as the consumer while the seller makes a lot of sales on the side *hint* *hint* (David) lol What... about $20-$35 per body tube / head seems do-able for my flashaholic budget... I think that's a great idea personally... He would make a killing, and everyone would be happy!

    And if an XP-G comes out, let us use whatever body we want or have already purchased! Putting in consideration that if a AAA model comes out... that may have to be smaller and more compact, etc, etc.

    Quark 18650 that can also run cr123a. I would like to see it running a choice of cool or warm MC-E. i would like the same UI and same brightness levels, but add a 300 lumen level on the tightened mode after a 190 lumen mode but before stobe.. maybe have a timer to shut off the 300 lumen modebefore it overheats.. Also lose just a little bit of the pressure required to activate the switch. My thumb got incredibly sore the first day i got my AA^2. i would like to see the option to select what kind of reflector you want as well. if david were to make this, i would pay $150+ easy.


    BTW - anyone else notice a high pitched whine on strobe and max? I am not saying anything bad, but i just noticed it. Still, AA^2 is the perfect light!

    Quark AAA! .2 lumens, 15 lumens, 80 lumens and maybe hidden strobe. Clip, clickie, XP-G, warm white. Now that's the perfect light. Can anyone top that?
    Nitecore D10, Nitecore EZAA, Fenix E01, ITP H01, Mini mag with terralux TLE-5EX drop in, Black Preon kit, battery junction key chain lights.

    That`s a good one. But 80 lumen? Expand your desire a bit...design it just for 10440. We don`t need another non-lithium aaa light in that crowded world. So add thermal and low batt management...and if a XP-G would cooperate set the high up around 180+ lumen. I need to find the key hole at night

    How about 80 lumens OTF with AAA batteries, and 180+ lumens with 10440? Haha! That will be the day! If this is even possible, you can add some very good heat management and constant brightness as well... Too bad your runtime will suck with 10440...

    Well hell...the Fenix pretty much does this already.

    As far as runtime I envision maybe 1~2 minute burst capability before the thermal managment drop it down. Plenty of time to...HEY...whats that? Ah...just a cat. Or to show to a friend...DAMM ...can`t believe that little light!! So you say you stole it from a top secret military facility...called area 51 Yep
