    Very handsome lights, David!

    Question:

    Is the screw-in light engine Aleph compatible threading?

    Davide,

    Very nice - any chance of a lanyard attachment? In particular maybe a clip with a hole in it such that you can put a lanyard around the light and back out through the clip?

    I work in industry & do not want to drop my lights into equipment (or on the floor).

    Hi Donn!

    This time I wanted to mke something unique, the engine is not compatible with Aleh lights, it has been thought and designed ad hoc for the Iris.

    Yes I understand what you mean They already have a lanyard attachement on the tailside, you can see it here:



    I also uploaded a high resolution pic in the second post, you can see it better.

    Regarding some questions I got:

    Yes it use the best switch available: the McClicky:

    While loading it from the back and I developed a wider edge rubber boot that lays wider in the the tailcap housing allowing a secure sealing when screwed in the rear bezel.

    I still did not rated water proof but I pretty much overbuilt it and should perform very well in damage and water resistance. The 7075 aluminium while stronger also got me brighter colors when anodized.

    Yes I'll try to get up some beamshot later tonight!

    No worries, I have a few Iris machined ready and I'm accepting orders on them but with Xmas holidays my anodizer will be full operative by the first week of January, sure the first you the first you get it

    Well, at the moment I'm pretty satisfied about 7075 alumium performance but I'm a titanium lover myself and I'll may think of a ti version in the future

    Hi Davide,

    is it possible to get two trit slots (for 1,5mm x 5,5mm trits) instead one lanyard attachement-hole in the tailcap?

    If yes, I'll take #001 in black.



    Greetings
    Dirk

    Here's a sightly underexposed shot tho show the beamshape, the reflector is wide and deep enough to have e nice focused hotspot with the XP-G R5, getting around 240 Lumens at the emitter!



    And here's another inside pic

    The bare satin finish is the one between the red and blue and the HA NAT is the one right above and below the black?

    What bezel and lens are included with the light at 130 euro? Also is there a chance for a higher output driver? Maybe in the 900-1000ma range?

    Anodized aluminium bezel and 2.85mm UCL@ lens are included in the basic price

    Well, light engines are screw-in and replaceable, I may think of a special output engine to swap in the future

    Did you develop the driver yourself or did you buy it? Do you plan a 18650 version for the Future?
