    I got the prototype and this is one solid quality little light. Great output from such a firm factor. Ordered another one. 👍

    Reverse clicky. These lights are a great deal at twice that price, guys. Get 'em while they're hot! The amount of light out of these is ridiculous!!

    It looks really nice to me. The price seems reasonable all things considered.

    Please confirm that this will tail stand.

    The Nichia 219c should produce a warm tint, right?

    The light should still function with Ni-MH at reduced output, right?

    I am a nooby so, I am just trying to make sure I understand.

    They tailstand perfectly. These take IMR 14500s as they draw a ton of current. I don't think an Eneloop would survive long.

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    Do do you have any experience or opinions about the 219?

    I realize that tint is highly subjective.

    I have an ElZetta A & B with a warmer tint which are good concerning color rendition.

    I'm not a good one to ask about tint as I'm not super picky. I'm more fussy about beam pattern.

    I went with a 4000k 90 CRI triple in mine. It is slightly warmer than my other 219 equipped lights when side by side but taken alone it's fairly neutral. To me, I have been happy with almost every Nichia 119/219 A/B light I have had.

    Ordered! Got the 3000k 219c, the warm tint with brass should look cool. Left some notes in the comments, let me know if you have questions.

    Regarding other materials, I was torn. Personally, I'm not a fan of Brass and was considering waiting for a different material. But I was concerned that if this original offering doesn't go well we wont be seeing other materials. I love the design and appearance, so I decided to order one to support the offering and hopefully motivate you for more models and materials. Shockingly good price!

    Personally I'd love to see it in Alu-Bronze and Titanium. Copper would be awesome too. I'd also like to suggest a single emitter reflector version. A triple off a 14500 has some drawbacks and there is a distinct lack of single emitter reflector options in the custom light market. In lieu of a reflector, a TIR option would be cool too Man the price is so good on these I may have to dedicate a shelf to them, different metals should look cool all lined up


    Anyway, thanks for doing this, was cool watching the process and I cant wait for mine!

    Subjective indeed. I have been caught on more than one occasion with a 90 CRI light on my person. I especially like it in the warmer tints. Plus if I didn't have nichia as an option I knew people would freak out

    I didn't see the notes, if you shoot me your order number I can check it (or I can answer here).

    I would consider other materials if this goes well enough

    I personally would love to see one of these in Aluminum for the weight savings. I think that the brass looks really good as well though. Nice job, keep up the good work!

    The the smallest optics I have been able to find for the quad is 24mm... Nearly the OD of the head.

    Are there any updates on ETA?



    I’ve not heard anything yet. That is typical though, there have been times when this machines has shipped finish parts to me without even emailing etc first I will shoot him a message next week though and see where we are at. As far as I know we are still on track for 9/15.

    Have you considered using an H17F driver in this light? Will it even fit? I like the idea of programmable modes more than the preset mode groups, and I think it would be worth the cost difference if the H17F works.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.
