    Hank hasn't released them yet, but for pre-production samples. I think ToyKeeper has one over on BLF and I guess it should be interesting.

    I have the D1S and D4 219CT and I'm looking at the D1. I don't think 26650 lights are all that appealing to me, so I'll probably pass.

    I was thinking about the d4 Ti for a long time but now I think am in love with the d4s I only hope it comes with many color options for aux LEDs..

    It looks very tempting, but it's gonna be too big for a jeans pocket/EDC and the slightly larger Fireflies Rot66 should take over for jacket pocket/hiking walking duty.

    Vinh's dedomed SST20 version has me curious though.

    That's my take on it, too, although the Fireflies is roughly twice the price at list, and even those who get in on the group buy will be paying somewhere in the $70+ range (exact price isn't public).

    Besides, everybody has different preferences for size. Some people with big pockets may carry the D4S. Others will holster carry it. Some will prefer the magnetic tailcap, etc. The D4S definitely has a place.

    On a fun side note, Lexel over at BLF is coming out with more options for auxiliary LED boards for both the D4S and the ROT66. I think he's got one in the works for the original D4, too.

    I don't think aux LED's are planned for the stock light. I think it's an accessory Lexel intends to sell on his own for users who want to add the feature. Here's where he mentioned it:

    Just put cash on the barrelhead for one w/ the 4000K XPL-HI LEDs - should have it in ~2 weeks. I expect it will fill in the gap between the D4 and D1 nicely.

    I'm hoping that there are some other options available in the future. A 21700 body would be a nice touch given that those cells are seeing development thanks to a certain always-in-the-news loved-and-hated electric car manufacturer. Might even buy another should they offer one with a floody optic like the 10623 version of the D4 which I find a bit more useful than the stock version.

    The D4S uses the LEDiL Angie optic, there are floodier versions of it you can order from a supplier and swap in. Should be very easy.

    Never tried to unscrew the head on my D4's; figured they were epoxied or something since they have no give whatsoever.

    I might end up doing the swap myself, but funny thing is I sort of ... collect ... Emisars so multiple examples aren't a terrible thing.

    If you guys are wanting a floody beam, this is likely what you will want, the 30 degree Angie which is the widest of the beams in this family of optics.

    Anyone who has received a D4S, can you comment on how quickly it steps down from turbo?

    Thanks

    This thing looks amazing! I keep adding it to my cart, only to bail out. Trying not to spend $$$ these days

    Also, I'm not sure I would like the UI. That's always a deal breaker for me.
    GOOD TINT!

    I think you can configure NarsilM to have dedicated output modes isntead of smooth ramping, and it's very similar to Zebralight UI, the most important bits are long hold for quick access to moonlight/low from off, and double click for quick access to turbo from off or from on.

    Oh, scratch what I said then. I bought mine but I'm pretty sure I'll just resale it once I compare it to the ROT66.

    For $50, your really going to be hard pushed to get a more fun light. Or more for your money (all things considered). The UI is fun, fast ramp which seems just perfect. No doubt it will get toasty in seconds not minutes, but it could be still used close to 1000lm levels for good duration's. If you dont like, you could get your money back within a day! Only a small gamble if any tbh, hank does some nice clever stuff with the help of other clever people(and a lady TK). Short cuts to min and max, options to change the ramp max ceiling , so no need to ramp to 4000+ lumens if you dont want, could have ceiling much lower . Then re-flashing is easier , no need to take fully apart like previous. You can flash(if desired) many different UI options, ZL included if thats your pick.

    Click it!!!!!

    According to Toykeeper, RampingIOS v3 does add a stepped mode option for the D4s. I'm not quite sure from the UI diagram how to switch between the modes, but it's described in her review:
    http://budgetlightforum.com/node/61509

    I wasn't sure if I'd like the ramping on the D4, and while I think I do still in most situations prefer discrete modes, the ramping is so well executed that I don't consider it a negative.

    Keeping your spending down is a very good reason not to buy a D4S.

    The next time your collection needs another member, however, if you don't already have one of the Emisar's, it sounds like this latest model takes an already excellent UI and gives it even more options, so it's well worth giving a spin.

    Looks like they came back in stock the day after after I'd already ordered from intl-outdoor. Ah well.
