Just receive mine and it's kind of disappointing such a big light for a 18350 batt.
Here are some pics compared to my trusty Modlite 18350.

I changed the heads between these two and both combinatios works.

It´s kind of big for pocket carry. I will compare it tonight with my Modlites and we will see, also will test the runtime that can be the only advantage against Modlite...
I've ordered a blem OKW head from Modlite and a HOG body with adapter. I wonder how it'll look with the EDC2 head on the larger body.

The 18350 DFT body is really sweet!

To bad there is no small/medium -HA head that can match the -HA finish

I might have even been interested in the 18350 capability if the new tube would mate with the older E-series heads.

E1L with 18350 would make a great little two level light even better.

Here are some pics other pics to compare size and to answer some questions:
Yes the Modlite head works fine on the EDC1 body and viceversa.

EDC1 head does not work on old E series.
EDC1 head gets hot but you can handle extended periods of time with the light on.

I don't think I will keep this light; it is too big compared with my trusty Modlites to EDC on my pocket.
I will sell it or trade it for another Modlite that IMHO is superior to SF.

I wish it was the same form factor as the modlites because I really like the Hi / low with no memory. The size really seems excessive, I wish it was easy to open up to see what exactly is taking up so much space in there. There is a dual stage sort of spring to ensure it works with shorter primary 123s which im sure contributes to the length somewhat, but that cant be all of it.

I like the light though, but I would be pretty pissed if mine was defective out of the box with no hope for replacement so that is frustrating to read.

I saw a EDC1 DFT on the bay for 175, looked brand new. I guess the problem for me, is that I dont need a thrower.

Not really a 'problem' - just money you don't need to spend! I don't need a 'thrower' like that either. Unfortunately(?), I've already spent the money on other lights - but they're things I can use more!

Last thing I almost impulse bought was a Olight lantern that has a bluetooth speaker in it so you can listen to music and have a lantern for camping. Then I thought, sure it would be great but I dont go camping that often.

Pretty sure I read on here of someone complaining about the fact it comes on on high first. That's what it says in the listing. 😁

If you saw one on eBay marked down instead of marked up to over $300, at this point in time; pretty much guaranteed it's either fake or defective.
Not saying a fake cannot happen, but this is so new it would make me think more defective. However, if it turns out to be a winner, someone is gonna be lucky.

"...you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?":)

I don't think luck was factored into that age-old adage I quoted above, but it's true that luck does exist.
What I have to ask myself is: If I were one who bought / received one and was unhappy with it, but it was in perfect nick, would I list it at that price here on 09/23/23 given current market for it?

Only if I cared nothing about money. That's a tough sell.
