    I'm using mine with eneloops--no problems at all! I ordered mine 1/25 or so and just got it a few days ago. I don't know if mine is an "updated" one or not. Great little light......!!! NP

    Just to clarify, is 47's saying that using an eneloop in the P0 will void the warranty? I see where they warn against using li-ion cells that are too high in voltage, but I don't see any warnings about using eneloops..... NP

    I am impressed with the form factor and the magnetic rear. I'll grab one as soon as I can find one in the UK

However, once the foam opening is enlarged through repeated use, contact is made and operation is normal. Based on my limited sample of 4, I do not think that these broad statements of incompatability may be accurate.

    Yes, based on your limited sample of 4, I can agree....but there are thousands in circulation. Proof of the potential problem has already been reported by GL and Selfbuilt. Broad Statement? i don't think so. Just an alert is all it is.

    My understanding is that the original batch had a white foam washer, and the revised batch has a black foam washer of different dimension, probably a smaller hole to prevent the battery nipple touching the IC. Mine is black, and I had no problems with it. Is this right?

    I think the black/white thing is to do with the o-ring for the head. The original batch of P0's have a white/clear o-ring, and from what I've heard, the second wave has a black o-ring. Both of my original batch P0s have black foam washers/donuts, and white o-rings.

    And this is why I don't pre order anything. Best to hear what people at CPF have to say first. I will hold off and see if the Eneloop issues etc are fixed before purchase.

    dag nabbit I want one so bad I want to get 6 of them so bad but cannot due the the PCB issue

    and now 47's has to fight a lawsuit from ******** so I really hope nothing damages 47's and
    screws up the ability to perfect the P0-SS (too much p-o-s in there, they should rename it) anyway
    I have a Ti Quark 123 and a Ti Quark Mini 123 and love them. I realllllly need 6 P0 as gift lights
    but I cannot make the jump. everyone I know uses eneloops.

    I got my P0 about a week ago and so far so good. I don't have any Enloops so no issues there. Switching is a bit flaky sometimes but has gotten progressively better. I love the size, finish and look of the light. One question though. Mine has a black O ring installed (which is the later revision I think) but there was also a plastic bag in the box with a small clear O ring and another of the same small clear O ring inside the battery tube at the bottom. I found it when I was cleaning the inside to see if it would help with the flaky switching. The two clear O rings are very small, maybe 5-6 mm in diameter. I guess they will stretch if they are indeed spares for the battery tube.

    I just thought it a bit strange that there was an extra spare in the battery tube and that they didn't match the one installed. Anybody else have an extra spare or a spare different than the installed one?

    Thanks.

    Absolutely appreciative of the early buyers and like it when I feel strongly enough about a particular product to be one of them.

    Got mine Saturday. Love it - this is a home run for 4Sevens IMHO - eneloops or no. Considering the battery life (expected), what's an alkaline among friends?

    Measured it in my sphere this morning (home made - my "no claims of accuracy" disclaimer hereby posted) - .71 lumen on low and, wait for it, 25.8 on high!

    LOVE the texture - easy for my big hand to twist "one handed". LOVE the smooth threads, and I haven't lubed them or anything. LOVE the magnet in the tail - battery jumps into the tube, and the light easily sticks to metal for 'no handed' use.

    Would I like one in Ti? SURE. But I like it enough the way it is that I just ordered 2 more. IMHO this, the Fenix E01, and the Thrunite Ti Firefly are 'budget lights' that should be on everyone's short list.

    Just sayin'...

    I'm waiting in the Eneloop issue as well. I've had way too many alkaline leaks to trust them.....and I have too many lights to check weekly.

    Are there any indications that 4sevens might fix the eneloop issue? I havent seen one. Do we know the actual rma % with the p0? There might be too few (but loud) rma's to really bother with the issue. Remember he sold out really quick after release, and i havent really seen that many pepole reporting about lemons. You will always find lemons in this pricerange, but it's rarely with warranty like the p0 got. It's priced like a semi cheap p60 module, and seems to work fine with different ni-mh for many pepole. Who knows, you guys might be waiting for a fantasy unicorn

    Add to that, that many of the purchasers may not have tried eneloops yet or don't intend to and therefore remain unaware. I'd venture to say it's a small percentage that use rechargeables anyways.

    I don't know the RMA %ages either but,, in the meantime, I'd like to bitch.

    I'll gladly order another P0, IF 4-7's would agree to take it out of the box and confirm that the Eneloop did indeed function properly in it BEFORE shipping.

    I ordered mine 2-12, and have been using for about four days. Performs the same with alkaline or enloop battery. Rarely, but sometimes, there is a little flicker while changing modes, regardless of which battery. But overall I like this light.
