They are now working flawlessly! :twothumbs:
Hooray!Hooray!Hooray!

I'll be back to post more tomorrow,
Thank you so kindly for your patience in the meantime.

Sweet.. Looking forward to getting my hands on a Zeus in the near future.
I have been holding out on purchasing an AA light while waiting for the Zeus.
Thanks DellSuperman,

I'm a happy Guy right now :D

:clap: Great news, Guy! We're all looking forward to the launch of Zeus! :)

Thank you as always for your support :twothumbs

TGWNN has PCBs. HDS has boards. It's a race. Whomever wins gets my money. :grin2:

Hi LedTed,

Thanks. I'm always running running running, but never in a race :D
HDS is some very fine stash too so either way the dice rolls, I think you will be the winner ;)

Hi Newguy2012,

That's a great Q!
A few more lumens & flawless operation with standard AA's, NiMh, Li-ion.


I second this. What are the specs of Zeus and Apollo as they sit now?

Let me review post #1 and post an update (a little time please)

Great news!! I too have been holding out on an AA light for the ZEUS!!
Thank you SA Condor ;)

Woo Hoo!!
Hi rejsr,

Update-ish:


Just wanted to mention I have a mountain of mails that piled up over the last week whilst I was out (of it).I'm planning on getting caught up on those by tomorrow and caught up on any outstanding orders over the weekend.

My very sincere thanks for your patience in the meantime.

Any news on Zeus?

Hi Iamnuts,

Every time I reply to you it reminds me how nuts I am so thanks for choosing such a helpful name :)

Zeus PCB is GTG (good to go). If there's anything I'd consider tweaking it might be lowering output on mode 1 just a little (though it could just be a result of my poor heatsinking in proto testing).

Both Zeus & Apollo are on standby for a first beta/proto batch so I need to share some updated specs/photos, then based on those, if I can confirm the first 12 people who are happy to pre-order/pre-pay for one of the first 12, I can make them happen.

Thanks so very much NowIC :bow:

Any updates on the torpedo
Hi walterr839,

I just posted to the Torpedo thread a few hours ago ;)

I'm interested but need actual info first.
Hi gunga,

Absolutely agree,
I'm going to sum up the available info/spec and share it so you can have a better idea of where the design is at. :)

Are you still going to go off of the initial preorder inquiry list that people had replied to early on in this thread? I am definitely in for one still.

Hi Parker,

Thanks very much, I greatly appreciate your support.
I'm working through the list of todo's and timeline, then I'll plan to send out a mail to those on the list.

I can stretch it beyond 12 but as this is the first batch, of a new product, I do like to keep risks to a level that I can personally vouch for should anything unexpected happen. I'll know more in just a few days once I have the timeline and specs all confirmed.
