You know you’re a flashaholic when Commander Data’s eyes from Star Trek: Picard trailer, looks like CREE XHP70.2 LED’s, (Cool White tint).

Hopefully I will still have your interest when I reveal all the details. I figure some might be very excited while others might be disappointed. But as with everything I suppose :)

Wont be disappointed. Can actually handle Turbo for a good amount of time. One of Proto V2 is set up as Mule and I play with it almost daily.

Re: Project Genesis - Sky Lumen Nguyen

SL Nguyen Proto V3


Subtle tweaks added to body and clicky tial cap. Only clicky version shown will be ready at launch. Twisty tail cap + Tactical/Diving head will be launch after.


4 shallow body grooves was replaced with 3 large deeper grooves
These new grooves can be filled in with the same body Orings for extra grip
Leave Orings out if you prefer better heat relieve with the fins



Choice of Black or blue heavy duty rubber boot available at launch
SL Lanyard optional
Tail cap rear wall has been rounded for overhand thumb access comfort
I find pointing finger activation most natural
Dual large lanyard holes allow for heavy duty lanyard attachment with tail stand ability uncompromising
Ti hi clip has recesses cone shape holes so screws can sink lower to prevent contact with clothing
Stubby Ti clip allow for extra strength while ease of inside or out side of pocket retention and draw
Ti Clip will comes in several finishes and laser engraving



For some reason the engraving was flipped 180 degrees for this Proto
Production units should have engraving flipped 180 degrees
Production unit should have larger serial for legibility
Note that I went with actual machined engraving and then HAIII anodization over the engraving for unique robust but discrete look
Almost all flashlights has laser engraving over anodization including surefires
