    HDS Rotary LED selection

    I suggest considering the SDR50. I had the 219b 4500 and 219b 4000. The SDR 5000 will give you a cleaner rendition of colors with less artifacts plus 300 lumens. The 4000 will give you a slightly tan artifact on a white surface and the 4500 will give you a slightly red rose tint on a white...

    Opinions for $250 light

    Multi-battery management is a very serious safety issue. If this person is not using a voltmeter and not managing the labeling and use of each battery he may find himself starting his house on fire. Further, if he inhales the fumes from that fire he could permanently lose lung capacity. The...

    Everything Is Ugly

    Once you go small run, custom, modded stuff you cannot go back. Might as well resign your search and pick up a copper HDS for your go bag. You know, in case you find yourself on the run in a constant flammable methane cloud.

    Opinions on HDS flashlights.

    Hold, program, and use a HDS light. After a short period of time all of your other daily EDC lights will be stuffed in the back of a drawer never to be seen again.

    HDS Clicky Executive UI

    Let me clarify. I have had business transactions with Nichia! My guess is that English is not his native language - it may be Arabic with English as a second language. Regardless, the HDS programming directions are only written in one language - English. Many translation software packages...

    HDS Clicky Executive UI

    Engish may not be his first language. That could make programming difficult because it is based on a precise set of steps translated in the English language.

    HDS Clicky Executive UI

    I do believe the OP is having a situation, is in the mountains, and cannot watch a video as a result of an intermittent internet connection. Programming and/or modifying the programming on a HDS light does require a good level of concentration to follow the process. After determining the...

    HDS Clicky Executive UI

    I reviewed the advanced manuals for 2014, 2016, and the most recent 2018. From the HDS light off position, a quad click will turn off the locator beacon for all of those years. Good luck :-)

    In the process of figuring out my software version my light was reset to Factory settings. So, by doing the above steps you should get back to Factory settings at a minimum - even if you do not collect the information to find out your software version.

    UV flashlight recommendation

    +1 on the HDS. I have one and it is solid and built to last. Plus, it has the Woods lens. You may be able to post a WTB as only 30 were made.

    Am breathing nichia!

    Thank you for the detailed analysis. The HDS Nichia 219b 4000K R9050 is my favorite light for indoor use. Was thinking the HDS Nichia 219b 4000K R9080 would be even better. What I did not like is the red hue/tint of the HDS Nichia 219b 4500K R9080 so I sold mine. I want to avoid that red...

    Am breathing nichia!

    Any insight would be great. Those 219b R9080 Nichia emitters in HDS lights are the ones I am most interested in understanding better.

    Am breathing nichia!

    Does the 219b 4000K R9080 have the same red tint/hue as the 219b 4500K R9080 in the HDS flashlight?
