Why is it my actual gunmetal L2/L2m don't look as tempting as your shots? :duh2:

Whats wrong with the shot ? Looks Great , I ordered the same Short Color / model after seeing this shot , so should have one more Shorty this week .

Also ordered the 18650 extension ... 2 x 18650 goodness !

That was what I meant, his shots look so good, they make my actual gunmetal look not-so-good. :grin2:



Btw, just realised a new Solarforce is out: T4

How many lumens will that be? :eek:oo:
And what does "KOPIS" in greek mean? :confused:

That would be 550-600 real lumens, about 800-900 bulb lumens...

KOPIS is the name of a Makedonian short combat sword...it was a bent style much like a king size Kukri....I am googling for a photo right now but no luck...

Retail price for that kit will be under $85 USD

That includes everything listed/seen as well as the carry case.

Could you please suggest to Solarforce that they produce a 1 x CR123 extension tube that will fit 18mm cells. I would like to Lego a Solarforce light to fit 2x18500 and that seems the best way to do it. Or they could make the L2M body wide enough for 18mm cells so I could add a 1 x18650 extender to achieve the same thing. A 2 x 18500 body would also be great but I imagine that would be too odd ball to be mass produced.

The T4 looks about surefire e series size. I wonder is T4 parts will be Surefire compatible like the L2 is with P series parts. Would be cool if it was.

I was just talking to Solarforce about that.

There have been previous issues with the L2m body and tailcap.

They're working on it as it is.

The new Solarforce L950M disassembled. This is definitely one of their best products to date.

Did you have to use much force to remove the LED+Heat-sink part from the head and the battery tube from the LED+Heat sink?

I had assumed that these components were expoxied since they didn't unscrew with a normal twisting force on mine.

The trick to it is having good grip. The body is quite smooth and difficult to grip, so I used a pair of rubber textured work gloves. I had 2 to play with and neither one had thread lock on them.

Ebay dealer Flashlight Express has a wide selection and good prices on Solarforce products--the new T4 looks like yet another fantastic product.
