I'm not sure of CPF allows direct links to BLF project topics, but we now have a BLF LT1M (Mini) being born.. it will have the same features as the full size LT1, but much smaller single 21700 format size for back-packing and can be carried in a pocket, will match or better the lumens than any mini lantern of its size-class (350 to 400 lumens on max.)

Very cool!

I have been using my LT1 quite a bit. You definitely put a lot of thought into it. Great job!

Interesting. I searched for BLF LT1M and didn't get a result.

edit: ok, I searched BLF LT1M (Mini) in bing and hit pay dirt.

That is still in the works, but due to some life's obstacles i been hitting over the last few months i had to delay that. the accessory kit is still planned though.

I like that it can apparently be used with between one and four cells. Are the slots diode isolated from one another?

Double what?

4 cells, in parallel....though I am unsure if full output is advisable, on one cell

They are not separated with diodes, so make sure to put all the batteries in the right direction.

A single cell is fine. At the top of the ramp, even with all the jumpers bridged for max output, it draws less than 3A.

We have discussed the plans for a LT1-Mini for a future project, (one that uses a single 18650 or 21700, and is much smaller for backpackers & camping with limited gear space.
This is what I’m waiting for, he LT1-Mini. I’ve watched your videos in YT and I think this is really a great project to proceed. Hope its in 21700 / 18640 platform
