Monday here too Astro. No biggy because the host for it (a gray 2 cell Seraph) still stuck in Hong Kong according to tracking.

Just popped mine in a G2 to test it out. It really is incredible how much light 25ish lumens is when you're expecting low, low, low, low. And the tint is swesome!

Thanks Dot for putting this together!

Re: Malkoff M61N LLLL SST-20 95 CRI Group Buy, round 2!

The pony express rode past my place with the package. See roofers had a 10 foot barrier around my house to catch falling debris and being I had worked all night. So in between episodes of smashing, thumping, crashing and buzz saw noises I cat napped. I woke up at one point and saw the pony express had already gone by (looking at neighbors mail boxes having mail poking out).
My future host is still listed in Hong Kong anyway so……sigh.

Update: the pony express took a victory lap around my neighborhood. He pulled up in front of my house while I was looking through my front door with sad hound dog looking eyes. Part lack of sleep, part "please please please toss me a USPS Priority box. About that time one of the workers intervened and relayed the package between Mr Postman and I. Yay! Thanks again dot!!

Still no gray Seraph so a minty gun metal 6P will suffice until.

Mine just got here. Really like the beam on them. Tint is totally different between the two I got. One is much whiter then the other but both are very nice.

Got mine! Agree tint is different on this one. I think this one is whiter. I am running this one on 2xCR123, other one is being run on 1x18350. Don’t know if that makes a difference. Both very nice in their own respect. Ty again!!

Volts doesn’t matter. First thing I tried. Ran one in a 3X123 one on a 16650. Swapped them back and forth. The white one stayed white the other stayed more neutral. No matter where I put them.

Put mine in an MD2 until my lens kit comes for the Elzetta...love the tint, the color rendering is fantastic and 24 lumens is more than enough inside around the house and excellent for the night walk. Kind of surprised at how much light 24 lumens is. With the extended runtime, I’ll get a ton of use out of this. Thanks again for putting this together!

Took mine for a walk this evening.
Great light tint and color accuracy.
Definitely will be carrying a lot, and I’m sure a single charge would last well beyond my expectations.

I think I speak for many here and echo others; thanks Dot for all the hard work and organization.
We appreciate it. 👍🏽😃

Everyone excluding INTL shipments have gone out! INTL packages will ship tomorrow, and I will follow up with each individual when I have them sent!

Just tried to send you a message but your PM inbox is full :eek:

Mine arrived Monday and they are absolute perfection. So glad I ran across this GB. Thank you for arranging this, dot, and for doing such a great job of it! :bow:

Re: Malkoff M61N LLLL SST-20 95 CRI Group Buy, round 2!

My Seraph host finally made it.
No for folks who are using one of those for their 4K4L and do not have a "big spring" from a P60 or similar one of those Malkoff Scout head adapter rings between lens and drop in pushes the drop in far enough back to make it work without the big spring. And it really doesn't block any of the beam.

A 26mm plumber o'ring will work too. A #22 o'ring should work. (1" ID, 1-1/8" OD, 1/16" thick) (26mm is 1.0236 inches or 1-59/2500 inch)

Re: Malkoff M61N LLLL SST-20 95 CRI Group Buy, round 2!

Thanks dot, I really appreciate the offer but the scout head adapter has it working just dandy. A non flashaholic friend of mine a few years back used an o'ring to get his SolarForce operating a few years ago and when I placed an order at Malkoff (also a few years back) I bought some of his adapter rings thinking they might get my SolarForce L2M (1/2 body) working with a Rayovac 2aa indestructable pill in it and sure enough it did.
So today when I installed the 4k4L and nothing happened I went digging through my P60 light parts box and alas……I had one left.

hello, could you show a picture of the product you used? I searched the site but the only thing that came to mind is this:

My Seraph host finally made it.
