Last two would be a Sofirn HS20 Headlamp w/battery.
Along with a soft nylon 4x18650 holder that can also accommodate 4x21700s.

I ordered the Olight IMINI 2.

As I shared in a previous discussion, there was a situation where I found myself without my everyday carry, and I had to depend solely on my keychain light (Beta-QR). Additionally, the Olight I3E I added as extra on my keychain lost its head shortly after adding it to my keys (a known issue with I3* Olights, wasn't my first), prompting me to seek another (even more) durable option.

Reflecting on these experiences and reading about this light, I decided to incorporate the IMINI onto my keychain with a unique and dead simple UI (activating it by pulling it from its base) to enhance my backup options. It not being the brightest light, I might next be looking at upgrading the Beta-QR.

My convoy S21a with 519a 5000k should be on my doorstep today when I get home from work. Last night I ordered a red ts10 with 4000k and orange aux. So I'm not sure how long shipping is for wurrkos. But convoy shipping is like 10 days to my house in Canada which is pretty impressive. Also, last night I ordered some soshine lifepo4 16340 for my aviator

Two chargers expected to arrive this weekend:
Xtar BC8 with 8x 1.5V Li-Ion batteries
Xtar VC8 Plus

Not exactly flashlight related... but:
Just received, parts to complete my home-built 200 Watt Bluetooth speaker:

> two Dayton Audio LBB-5SV2 18650 battery holders to run in parallel for extended runtime:

Back Side:

These even have both onboard LED's for battery level, and ability to connect external LED's to monitor battery level!!!

Front Side:

they come individually shrink wrapped, which I left on for now, just making sure they fit in the holders while helping to reduce chance of shorting - pretty tight fit btw.... Each holder supports a maximum 7A output (batteries are rated WELL above that), so 2 holders in parallel should give me up to 294 Watts of power :cool:

> one Dayton Audio KABD-4100 4x100 Watt Bluetooth Amplifier - operates at 2x200W(2.0), 2x100W+1x200W(2.1), or 4x100W (4.0) modes with DC input power range 10V - 39V - suggested power supply is 360 Watts / 36V 10A.

To supply power:
> ten Orbtronic 18650 flat-top high drain 3120mAh cells

Sent my Surefire E2D with a burnt LED to the mothership for RMA. They sent a package back to me a few weeks later without any email updates. Kinda curious as to what's inside as it was delivered today…

Got my convoy m21A. This thing is nice. I'm not sure I want to dedome now. This 5000k 519A is so nice. Like nicest led I've ever seen. I'm unable to distinguish from 35% and 100% though. They're both so bright. I believe it's around 400 and 1000 lumens respectively

I wouldn't touch it. Don't try to fix what ain't broke; it never works. If I had a light that had the 'nicest LED I've ever seen', I wouldn't even think of jacking with it. In short: Believe what your eyes see, not what you've read.

I just dedomed it. lol. I like it. I now understand the nichia rosiness I've heard so much about. I do understand your point though. Lukily, I can always replace with another 5000k if I want to. But I do prefer the slightly warmer tone it now has. And the intensity has increased dramatically

Ya. Originally I was going to get the 4000k or 4500k. But I didn't want to go too warm. I like my 3300k incans, but wasn't sure I wanted to go that warm on my LEDs. I really like the colour of my sst-20 4000k. But it's a little bit green. This is more neutral. With the smooth reflector the only "downside" now is it doesn't look quite as nice on a white wall from 3 feet as it did 15 mins ago. But I don't do white wall hunting so it's no issue to me. I mean i like defocused maglite beams. I'm also having a really hard time getting the LED perfectly centered since I took off the reflector. But I'm being picky. It's extremely close

After 2 years of waiting (out of stock messages) I'm finally able to realize a dream....

A Fraz Labs QT-SS 18650 is in its special wooden box and in the hands of the USPS, inbound


I haven't been more excited about a light in a very long time. Thanks Fraz Labs!
