I've been considering getting Richard to drop the level of high, maybe to 80% or so. I haven't built one up yet, but I'm concerned about the heat with such a small form factor.
I don't think 80% would make much difference with the heat. I wish there was a mode with four settings including moonlight, 2%, 10%, 50%, maybe even 5 settings with those and a DD. I've put off getting this driver for my Preons because they don't have a decent 4 mode setting, and I think the 6 mode would be overkill on a 10440 light.

#11 (far right) definitely has my vote. #10 second choice.

I agree with @archimedes about the aspheric lens.

A nice slot at the tail end would be great as he mentioned as well where you could add a split ring for keychain or enough to get some gutter cord through for a lanyard.

Also a Nichia... with a moonlight option would be amazing.. No memory (now I'm just being picky!)

Can't wait to see what you end up with. Let me know if you need a field tester.. ;)

#9 and #11 gets my vote and I'd love a copper model with a Nichia Hi CRI.

Sorry guys! It's still a little rough, but we're getting there. I'm thinking titanium and copper for the first round of these.

If that's rough then I can only imagine what lies ahead for this light! Nice!

This one is running the Mtn 11mm FET and a 219c on a Sinkpad. I'll definitely be turning down the high quite a bit, this one gets way too hot. I'm hoping to go with 219b 92 cri emitters for the larger runs.

Hah, I'm not sure about the trit slots yet. That would require a machine I don't have at the moment.

We're still a ways out on having these done, since I've got to balance it with production on the TinyDC. And there is only one of me. 😉
