    Good for you, Rob! I look forward to your video and your take.

    Well, just got back from LJ. Made the video and I have the sample light that NiteCore sent. Pretty dawgone impressive. It's too late for me to make up a full post about it tonight, but will get one up in the next day or two. Until then, here are a few teaser pictures. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the pics Rob do you have any Redilast 18650 2900mah and 3100mah you can try, I'm curious if they work or fit in the TM11.

    Hey Jason. Unfortunately I don't have those cells. I do have JETBeam 2300mah, AW 2200mah, and Ultrfire 3000mah. They are all protected cells and they all work fine. In fact, on the light and in the user manual....it says to use only protected cells when using 18650's.

    I am going to try and get my preview post up by tonight, but most likely not till tomorrow night. My son has indoor soccer later this morning, and then I am doing lunch with a couple of fellow CPFr's (Blades and Flying Turtle). I am looking forward to that. I get together with Flying Turtle on a regular basis, but this will be the first time I get to meet Blades. I will surprise them with this light.

    I want to get some outdoor beam and comparison shots also, but it is raining here. Hopefully it will let up enough for me to get some tonight.

    Have a good day.

    Thanks for the effort I watched the video at Lightjunction and it looks like there is some extra room in the battery tubes to hold a larger battery than the Jetbeam 18650, if Nitecore measured the 1hr 15min runtime using 2300mah battery's then using 2900 or 3100mah Redilast battery's should significantly increase runtime.

    For example if you use 2900mah battery's instead of the 2300mah the 600mah difference is multiplied by 4 for an additional 2400mah so it's like having 5x18650 instead of 4, if the 3100mah Redilast fit then the increase would be that much greater.

    First it all comes down to A. Will they fit, at first glance it almost looks like they will and B. will the raised flat positive contact surface on the Redilast battery make contact with the brass ring inside the head of the light (if in fact that is where the battery makes contact I'm just assuming).

    I would really like to figure this out because I'm going to order some more 18650's, I have all the battery's mentioned and could wait to see myself and I guess that is what I will have to do unless someone with a sample has some Redilast. It's not a problem waiting but you know how it is I would like to have the exact battery's I'm going to use with the TM11 when the light arrives.

    Well, they certainly give an interesting frame of reference for size...especially if you're a firefighter.

    Too bad the price on the TM11 jumped up so much from the original estimated cost (roughly 50 percent higher than what was initially posted). I'm sure that the preorder cost of $260 it's competitively priced for what looks like very nice quality and exceptional performance...but it's certainly a bit higher than I had hoped to see. I'm guessing what happened was that perhaps a wholesale price got posted inadvertently.

    Ha! Too funny, Glenn.

    Yeah, you're right about being walking, talking advertisements for the latest in flashlight technology. I find I start getting the glazed look from most folks once I get much beyond the words "LED flashlight." But the few who stay interested are usually the ones worth talking to in more detail. The hardest thing is trying to explain how a flashlight can be worth $200-plus when they can pick something up at the local store for $6...

    SYSMAX/NiteCore should be choosing models/spokesmodels with larger hands. The ritualistic dainty woman approach makes the Tiny Monster look bigger than it probably really is, which seems like the reverse of the message they'd want to get across. I guess there's an overpowering cultural need to sell using women. Shaq seems to be pretty much free these days...maybe they should bring him on board.

    Rob her hands may be pretty but yours is a little more (emotional involved) so right now you still own the worlds best TM11 video.

    I should have mine tomorrow but I did want to ask about the UI to clear some things up.

    First can you select a lower mode from turbo mode or is the lower modes only available in the Daily mode?

    Next in her video memory was mentioned so from Daily mode if you half press until you reach 500lmn and then turn the light off when you turn the light back on in Daily mode will it light up in 500 lumen or 1100lmn, in other words is the memory only in the "sub levels" or is the last level used in Daily mode memorized? I hope my question makes some since.

    Aw, jeepers... Thanks Jason!

    I should have mine tomorrow but I did want to ask about the UI to clear some things up.

    The 3 lower modes are only available in and from the Daily mode.
    In other words, you have to turn off the light from Turbo mode and then half press it on to get to the three lower levels in the Daily mode.

    Next in her video memory was mentioned so from Daily mode if you half press until you reach 500lmn and then turn the light off when you turn the light back on in Daily mode will it light up in 500 lumen or 1100lmn, in other words is the memory only in the "sub levels" or is the last level used in Daily mode memorized? I hope my question makes some since.

    Yes. In the Daily mode, the light comes back on in the level you turned it off. BTW, the 3 "sub levels" are the Daily mode.

    Hope this helps Jason!
