Does that only apply to the Clicky? I wonder if that's true when turning the Rotary dial.

The runtimes with a 18650 tube are quite good, therefore I have doubts that a 21700 tube will ever come.21700.
It is as long as you have the aluminum switch cap and a titanium bezel and no clips that have any ferrous material in them.
Dropping the light and having it land on the bezel (or the new stainless tail) can cause a spark. Everything internal is sealed to prevent a bad boom incident.
I believe the only way to have a truly spark proof HDS light is to go with the Beryllium Copper HDS build. It makes that HDS flashlight package really interesting and provides a compelling reason to purchase it.
I can't wait to see pictures of the BeCu lights. Reminds me of Steve Ku lights and I may end up getting one someday, but for now, my bronze Rotary looks really nice. The patina is pretty much in the grooves only, but I really like the way it looks. Not dark like a lot of us would like, but it's got that pocket-worn look that is hard to beat.At least I pre-ordered a BeCu because it is looking cool. If the patina is also great... than it is even better.
My Bronze HDS has still no patina, looks like Hogo sent it to me 3 days ago. Maybe I will leave the Bronze HDS alone on the garden for the winter and see what happens than....!?
I can not wait until my BeCu is here. The picture that Hogo was doing from the BeCu parts are really tempting. I am really totally excited.
I always had the fear, when I am use one of my non BeCu HDS lights in my living room where I store my Gin supply, the room may explode.... :laughing:

I am quite sure, that is the reason why we all bought the BeCu HDS :thumbsup:

I think it would be a good idea for burst mode to function on settings below level 24. Meaning one could set up the light to run level 22 for 40 seconds and then drop down to 21.
In other words, burst mode would allow you to set any level as your “maximum” output, and then step down. I’m thinking of this more for the executive’s A setting, not the rotary, unless you’re using setting A.
I think a 2 x AA Side By Side battery compartment would be cool. It would be much more pocket friendly than 2 inline AA's. Benefits would be cheap, readily available batteries, and increased run-time vs. one 123 battery. Imagine an HDS head and rotary tail on something like this:
