Hey Guys!

I was just checking the Shoppe when I saw that 4 of them were available! :rock:

During the time it took to me to grab one, another one was already sold. Now I see they're all gone! I don't know how many were initially available, but I'm sure they were gone fast!!

I'll post my first impressions with pics as soon as I receive it (oversea shipping is always a long wait... :awman: )

Can't wait to receive this little pocket rocket... How bright did you say? 115 lumens with ultra strong spill? :naughty: :rock: :popcorn:

Congratulations!! I think we're all waiting patiently. Or not entirely patiently...

I'm so glad I was a night owl last night...got my order in! =)

Wonder if this little beauty will displace my Orb RAW U-bin as king of the "mighty mini"s.

But the difference is that the batteries on this one won't die before I finish showing it off to my friends. ;-)

The Raw's a great "wow" light, as long as no one wants to take it away from me and play with it for ten minutes. Because by then, the battery's already gone :poof:. They just laugh and point: "your flashlight only lasts for SEVEN MINUTES on a set of batteries?! Bwhahahahahaha...."

Isn't the RAW even smaller? Not that I had one, but I got the impression that it was really tiny.

But just like Flash said ... different lights. Not really comparable. IMHO at least.

the standard orb raw runs on CR2 (15.6 x 27mm) batteries which are smaller than CR123s. The Orb raw NS is smaller still and runs on 14250 batteries.

The Cree XR-E has a number of folks very excited for good reasons. It's efficiency! at making photons from watts-in is the current ruler! I didn't request samples, because I choose to defer to Don to figure out as to how to manage those photons effectively!
Me :popcorn: and not yet up to speed!

Whoever ordered these A19's are going to have a tough time wiping the grins off their faces when they get theirs. The A19 is the perfect host for the Cree, and the beam from the McR19 cannot be beat. The A19 with the Cree XR-E is the killer app :D

I have literally not been able to think clear since I've ordered mine. I can't wait. Well, I can, because I have to.

Perchance I am the first to receive this light? Came home today from work and there was a little box mixed in with all the junk. I guess there are advantages to living in the city next to the Shoppe. For those of you still waiting, this light is _so_ worth it. BTW, I don't have any beamshots. (because I _know_ that will be the next post)

I think I got one of the first, if not the first (talk about clicking reload every 5 minutes!) and I should have mine delivered tomorrow...too bad I have to go out of town until Sunday! Before I get the mail! :rant:

It took a few days for mine to "Process" at the Shoppe, even though I upgraded my shipping... it said that it shipped late today. :popcorn:

Hey guys who already received it...:wow:

We NEED you to write a review!:anyone:

What about the beam? Spill? Overall? Throw?
What about the tint? Runtime? Heat?

I NEED to know :poke: :thumbsup: :clap:
