    New Mini MKIII's for 2021

    It doesn't really say what people who already have their Minis should do if they want one that performs as advertised.

    My edc light has a max output of only 300 lumens

    Die? No. It might be a bannable offense on CPF however :grin2:

    Incan vs LED?

    Does the PolyStinger come in high CRI? Why put an "inferior" LED in a G2. Because I like runtime and reliability. Nobody needs to worry about heat with an M61L or LL, even in a Nitrolon body.

    Incan vs LED?

    Need? No. Want? Obviously. Not to mention there's nothing out there that compares to a G2 with a low output, high CRI M61 variant with regards to simplicity, reliability and non-aluminum body.

    Incan vs LED?

    I'm not big on PRC clones, besides, putting a Malkoff in a cheapo knockoff feels like putting lipstick on a pig. I've been keeping an eye out for a genuine Surefire for sale, but I always seems to change my mind when I think about the total cost in the end.

    Incan vs LED?

    I have a warm white high CRI XP-G2 in an Peak El Capitan, yeah, it doesn't look the greatest. I do have a Folomov EDC C2 with a 3000K Nichia E21A and that looks much, much better. Cree never seemed to have the best looking tints. There aren't to my knowledge any lights on the market other than...

    Incan vs LED?

    If you all like the 4000K SST-20, you might want to check out the M61W which sports a 3000K SST-20. No experience with the 3000K myself, but I'm a huge fan of the 4000K, honestly it's a very underrated LED.

    High pitched whine coming from new flashlight

    I see no reason no to exchange it honestly.

    Looking for a low output (1 lumen or lower option) LED mini lantern.

    Astrolux LT1/Mateminco CSF06 Doesn't specify what the lowest output is, but it features stepless dimming.

    Worse flashlight feature by far

    To top that, The M2R Pro had a proprietary battery and magnetic charging on it's switch, which was also used for a magnetic remote switch. That lead to paperclips activating turbo mode unintentionally.

    FIreflies PL47MU strange flashing

    I recently received my PL47MU with the 9 E21A cluster and noticed every now and then when I go to turn the light on, the light strobes when I push the button instead of turning on. As long as I hold the switch, it will strobe in a momentary mode and when I release the switch, the light flashes...

    New Mini MKIII's for 2021

    I'll be honest, I never understood the mentality of "it's a small light, therefore it must be floody". Small lights are already limited on output, why further limit their usefulness by making them overly floody? Besides that, the Mini isn't even a "thrower" anyway. Personally, I find it's optic...

    What will flashlights be like in 2030-2040

    By then phones will be totally passe. They'll be making the latest iMplant 4. The upgrade to 4 will hurt like a mother, but the procedure will be worth it.

    What will flashlights be like in 2030-2040

    I can't help but imagine at some point lights will be so crazy, somebody's going to do something stupid and the government will step in and start regulating how much outputs flashlights can have.

    New Mini MKIII's for 2021

    Yeah, the wise thing would be to send an email with the current specs and see who wants the lights as they are currently, get the easy ones out of the way. I'm sure there's going to be some people that are just going to tap out at this point, so that too will free up some time. Still though, I...

    New Mini MKIII's for 2021

    Of course, giddy factor must be measured in decibels and pitch of one's squealing. The scale starts at that weird sound your body makes when you belch and hiccup at the same time and maxes out with little schoolgirl who just got a "do you like me" note sent back with the yes box checked.

    New Mini MKIII's for 2021

    I'm a little mixed myself. I definitely like the medium and high output levels but low is too low for a general use twisty light for me and I'm really missing a good, stable high output high mode and the high giddy factor of the 900 lumen turbo. It is however good to know that the runtimes are...

    When it rains, it f'n pours, but it's nice to know I'm not crazy, well at least not for this one instance...

    Do the outputs on your light seem to match the specs?

    New Mini MKIII's for 2021

    Medium ran for somewhere between 22 hours and 22 hours and 30 minutes. Left t alone at the 22 hour mark and came back half an hour later and it was out. High made it 2 hours and 39 minutes before it dropped noticeably and started flashing.
