I just read the Insider. The battery swap mode groups seems like a great solution for me. I was going to get single mode for tactical use, but now that's not necessary.

We are going to want to hear a description of the tint on the dome altered XPL's. And how long can the XPL 2 cell configuration run on high.

Thanks. It was a huge amount of effort over a huge amount of time but I think it was worth it :)

Certainly.
We developed a new way to show color but could not include it without postponing the release.
I can say its about 4000k but will need a few weeks to actually show it.
Here are the runtimes I've been able to finish:

highH33100%30000349810m8m + 36m




These are XPL on an 18350/800. Figure about 4.5x more for 18650/3400


R33- xpl redome.. Is it the same as factory xpl-hi?

These are custom. Non HI model, with the dome removed and then a smaller dome replaced.

We can choose the size of the new dome in this process. The shorter it goes, the more throw it has.
We went as short/warm as we could go and still be near white.

Nice, are you gonna release the whiter xpl-redome in near future sir?

These are already very close to pure white. We could do a cool but with less throw. Warm is also an option but not doing that for a few months at least. We've invested months developing this color, lets see how the early adopters feel before altering it.

Thanks Dude, I was planning to go with a sliced image as I've done with various GID parts but the presentation was off so I changed to a split screen view. Even that didn't look balanced, but adding the logo fixed that right up :D

With 2 18650 batteries, how long can you run on high before it gets 'too hot' to hold.

By the way, this sounds like a fantastic light. The programmability knocks it out of the park.

It doesn't. The board is fine up to 120c but that is to high for humans. So there is a thermal management system that monitors the temperature in real time. As it runs into the set limit of 65c, power drops in 1/33 increments. Output is kept as close as possible to the set power level within the thermal limit, for the entire discharge of the cells (until 3.2v per cell).

In practice, its smooth and nearly seamless and is one of my favorite features of the new board.
