I haven't seen any nice lights from them for a while, at least they are not mentioned here. The ones I checked out on their website seems rather unexciting. They are not that big and should be able to change their production line easy(I would think), and they have been quite cutting edge before, so I'm curious why they haven't released a cree or seoul light yet?

A very strange dark place
They are designing new lights that use Seoul P4 U bin LEDs. They also are working on A123 Systems rechargable 3.25V nano-technology battery systems for LEO lighting systems. Look Ma! These don't explode! (they also can discharge at 30C) I would bet multiple outputs are in the mix also.

Bet they beat Arc to the market :)

You'd think that, wouldn't you?

I think Surefire is proving you don't have to be that innovative to charge ridiculous amounts for a quality light. $499 for the new Titan comes to mind.... :whistle:

I know that Peak has several ideas they have been working on. Peak spends quite a bit of time developing and perfecting new designs before marketing them. They also make sure they have something manufactured before announcing it is available, so you won't see any pre-sales from Peak. Hopefully we'll see someting new soon.

Probably nothing, having an extended R&D session. I have alot of Peak lights and
I like em all. They will be around. I especially like the brass and SS offerings, something
like a Pacific SS Cree w the momentary switch to change levels and keep the UI simple.
2 or 3 stage no strobe or SOS in my mind. To me the brass and SS speak quality and
the extra weight is worth it. Runs on primarys or Li-ions.

But it seems a number of our top pick flashlight manufacturers are taking their time lately to get new products out the door, which is why I think some of us (myself included) are having such hissy fits.

I agree with the above comments as well. Look at how long it took Mag to bring out
some LED light's.
