    Hi run4jc

    Just to let you know and counteract confusion for others:

    For a single Li-Ion cell configuration (1x 18650 or 1x 18350) the limit is 17w at level 28.
    The NXS R1 programmer shows levels up to 31 (23w) for single Li-Ion cell configuration
    but they will be internally converted to 17w at level 28 when programmed.

    See my question about the same thing here at post #221 and ElectronGuru's answer at the following post #222 (please read his answer completely).
    It is also mentioned in the upper right hand corner of the NXS R1 programming page.

    Just as an FYI, my bezel ring came off pretty easily, changed the optics...and no, I'm not that strong. In the past though, I had good results with those cheap rubber lined gloves from home depot for hard to remove bezels. Just a thought.

    Yeah my patina boss was easily opened but I've used those rubber "can opener" pads to good effect in other lights, adding heat from a heat gun when needed.

    I'd like to try this narrow frosted whenever I can get my head off straight.

    +1 on the heat. I don't know what lube OR uses but Nyogel for example tends to get quite viscous when cold. Just the warmth of your hand can loosen up the lube. Wish all a good luck to getting the bezel open!

    Lesson learned, by the way, not for BOSS but another bezel I wanted to loosen the head on that was loctited. I put the head in a ziploc, put it in some boiling water for about 10 minutes, took it out, grabbed it with the rubber lined gloves...well, don't do that...the heat will leave a mess on the rubber lining, especially if they are cheap. There are heat resistant ones but mine weren't. They all cleaned up without any trace and with no damage, but was annoying cleaning up the mess

    Maybe it's just stupid me but juuuuust in case someone else is thinking to try this.

    New B.O.S.S. Flashlight,

    With all these fuss and talk about this flashlight, I would just like to know about its lifespan capacity. I mean, would this be good for long term storage? Like, say, 10-20 years? I would like to use this as for emergency purpose only. If it is actually performing like it says, then I suppose this would be a good choice for me. I just have to know if it could last long enough and still perform in its optimum state.

    I believe with a little TLC, even in edc use a 10 year lifespan wouldn't be too hard to achieve. An o-ring on occasion? Maybe a switch and boot? All could be purchased now with your light and stored. If you're spending the money, get it and enjoy using it...

    Update:

    We have the best customers in the world and strive every day to be worthy of your love and respect.

    A glitch during launch presented two different prices during the latest BOSS release. Some customers were charged the lower Patina price and some the current higher HA price with added AlTiN.

    We are not comfortable asking customers who paid less to pay more now. We are also not comfortable charging customers two different prices. Therefore, all customers who paid more are receiving price adjustments (refunds), equal to the difference from the Patina price.

    Those customers who volunteered more post-purchase should also now have refunds.

    If there was a light to stand the test of time and last a lifetime, like with HDS and malkoff type lights.............oveready is sure one of them.

    Oveready's integrity has been the company's foundation from day one. This is an extremely noble
    gesture, even though it is not necessary, but understood.

    This is unbelievable. You are looking at a possible $4,000 loss here and I'm not comfortable with you suffering that loss because of a web store glitch. Please don't send me a refund.

    On the afternoon of the release I pointed out there was a $40.00 difference between the price I saw on the Oveready site and what I was charged. When my order arrived, I discovered you had thrown in $22.00 worth of extra batteries because of the confusion. This was totally unexpected and I certainly don't want the batteries plus a $40.00 refund. If you have already processed a refund, I would like to send a $40.00 contribution to the "Oveready Flashlight Development Fund". Thanks for running such a fabulous operation.
