    However it does not say "Mr. Elfin" on the body, thats definitely a big plus.
    A recent review (selfbuilt's, I think) actually predicted the low to last 2-4 days (16340/CR123) instead of just a day and half, based on the measured current draw at low. Which is still not great, but more acceptable regardless. Wonder if someone would step up and run this thing on low for a couple of days to see. Come to think of it, I'm considering trying this with my V10R AE just to see...

    I've got a minimum output runtime test for this light on my to-do list, I just have several other things above it

    Thanks jmac30! I got the High CRI V11R from HIDCandada. I'm not sure there's any left, it was a pretty limited run.

    Glad to hear you're enjoying them! The V11R HCRI is still my EDC, and I think it's going to be there for quite a while.

    Best ... Flashlight ... Ever

    This is my new favorite flashlight!

    The low is exceptionally low, even lower than my Quark "X" AA˛. The control ring is effective throughout its entire range, except for the last few degrees. It turns smoothly with very little effort. In fact, it turns so easily I'm a little concerned it might move inadvertently.

    Even with a AA battery, the maximum light output is way more than sufficient for my needs.

    I don't know why I like a low low so much, but I know I am not alone. When LED flashlights first came out, they were all pretty low (and blue). Nowadays, it is not uncommon to see lights advertised with 1,000 lumens or more, but you can't use that to walk around the house with dark-adapted eyes.

    I also have a Peak Eiger AAA with the QTC continuously variable interface. It's a pretty close second favorite, but the twist ring UI of the V11R is just a bit nicer.

    The V11R control ring uses a much thinner lubricant than the ring on the V10R, so it turns much easier. This means it's possible to adjust the brightness with a single finger, but it's also a little more likely to change the brightness setting while in your pocket.
    o, I'll be changing the lubrication on my V11R HCRI, per some suggestions in some other threads on the subject.
    I have a V11R, but the adjustment ring is loose. Is there a way to tighten it up? It seems like there is some type of grease lubricant behind the ring. Is it possible for enough to come out to loosen the entire ring?

    I remember reading a while ago that a bunch of people were adjusting the feel of the rings on their V10R's but using different lubrications, but I don't recall how exactly they were doing it or what lubrications seemed to work well. A search on the forums for "V10R lubrication" would likely bring up some of those old threads with some helpful information.
