This is the NL1, and we will NOT be making it. It's an idea I've had for quite awhile. It was fun to work on, but I'm just not happy with how bulky it turned out to be. I'm glad to have it done and off our plate. There are plenty of things to do next.

This is a lantern that uses a Nalgene water bottle as the diffuser. It's powered off of up to 3 18350s, but will run on a single 18350. Everything that comes in contact with water is food safe.

Cost would be 199
Approximately 2400mAh with 3x 18350s
Single Nichia 319a emitter (3000K-3500K)
Omten Reverse Clicky Switch
Approximately 600 lumens on high mode
Okluma branded Nalgenes
Waterproof inside and out (only the inside is waterproof now)
Recessed D-ring top screw for easily hanging the NL1 from the inside of a tent or tree
Tailstanding / Headstanding
Beacon mode with long runtime (~100 hours) for SAR situations
Lanyard attachment for storing a small length of cord around the neck of the Nalgene

That is really cool! I've always been a sucker for the Nalgene bottle form factor, even as I've moved toward internal bladders for hiking. Great work :D

I was following your progress on this, it’s a really cool idea. I can’t wait to see the other stuff that you are planning.
