I just got the D4SvnV2 Supercharged in cyan. Just wow! Such a beautiful and powerful light.
Nice! I have it's twin. Such an impressive beam for a quad, TIR and the cyan is spectacular. Somewhat heavy but it needs that mass with those four screaming W2's.

^ although that blue stripe shows Vinh gives support to law enforcement, which is a plus
.. especially if pulled over for citations, every little bit helps 🇺🇸

Why are you holding out on us? Tell us the secret, please!
I have had that issue with older routers in the past and would love some more tricks!
Buy one of these. Plug your router to it. Set it to turn Off 4AM an ON at 4:01AM.

You will be without internet everyday for may be 10 minutes after 4:01AM die to the restart.

You may set up to four restart in one day. It will obviously repeat this sequence every single day.

I only set one reset and my system has been running flawlessly without me having to manually restart.

I noticed my internet works great after restart but starts to slow down after a day or two which I then usually manually reset before.

I have the Jetbeam RRT01vn quad in a 219b 3k or 3.5k (can't remember off hand) and it's my daily driver. I love the light. It's not the brightest light I own, but I use it for close up mechanic work and it is great for that. I have it set up with flood optics, which doesn't help the light reach out further either, but does give it a super smooth beam and beautiful wall of light. It has enough light to light up anything I have needed it for.
I personally like the pattern and spread from a quad over a triple, but that might just be me.

Sure, yes, ok. Also, you can email Vinh at SkyLumen54 [at] gmail.com

Welcome to the Vinh54 section of CPF!
Apologies for the basic questions - I'm fairly new to anything beyond basic consumer lights, and brand new to CPF. And I just found out about Sky Lumen yesterday. I'm concerned - about how many I will end up purchasing... FWIW, when it comes to other equipment (knives, firearms, optics/glass), I'm a buy once/cry once person and appreciate quality and durability, so SL looks like a good fit.
  1. My current/initial interest is in a few lights:
    • Bigger throw, but relatively compact size, to help me track game - looking far ahead of the trail. (I've got two ZLs - the H600c Mk IV for a headlamp, and a SC64w HI for a variation in color temp.) I'm looking at the XVII and/or XXI, or maybe the SL2C. I had some initial interest in the LTC2, but it's a bit big, and the beam is insane - but a bit narrower than what I'm seeking.
    • EDC that can fit in my pocket - slacks for flying as an example. I've got a few already that might work (maybe the SC64), but maybe the BatonVN3? (And don't we "need" more anyway?)
  2. I'm a fan of orange, so any feedback on color flexibility would be great.
  3. Do used SLs ever get posted for resale, and if so, on which b/s forum? (I've found some that have sold before, but it looks like sold items get moved to a different "sold/expired" forum. That differs from other forums I'm a member of.)
If the above are too detailed, need to be moved to another forum, or too many questions for a brand new member, I get it. I appreciate any feedback!

or

Thank you so much for the detailed replies - here and to my emails. I will read all of them (including the links) and hopefully my next contact will be a purchase instead of more questions!

Don't over think it too much. If you receive something that is not as expected just send it back for a a refund/exchange.
