Can it use Flat-Top unprotected Samsung 50-G cells ?

BTW -- Shame about the 6500°K tint :awman:

Yeah, my trusty PD36R borders on being a little too blue. I realize that the trend in higher-lumens lights is to push towards blue, but it creates an annoying amount of glare. The tint on my older PD35 is much more comfortable to my eyes.

Did somebody understand if this light always starts on turbo or if it has last-mode memory?

The manual doesn't mention mode memory but doesn't state if the light defaults to turbo whenever is turned on.

Lots of lumens... probably for a very short while.

But horrid tint, no moonlight and no deep carry pocket clip (n)

The tint is subjective but I agree on the lack of a true low brightness level - moonlight or otherwise.
The problem with Fenix lights is always the same: one UI instead of different programmable UI modes or settings.

Got mine a couple of days ago and I really like it. It has mode memory but it seems to forget if the battery is removed.

Turbo output is indeed very short-lived, less than a minute I'd say before it kicks down, however the real gem in this light is the next mode below turbo (high) which can sustain 1000 lumens for nearly 3 hours. That's significantly more than the light I upgraded from (Nitecore MH12S) which could only manage about 500 sustained for 3 hours.

I kinda miss the moonlight mode from the light I had before but only for theoretical reasons, I never actually used it.

I'll be using this for cycling with the Fenix bike mount and a Nitecore NFD25 diffuser tip which just about fits on the end despite being 1mm narrower.

I like what I'm seeing.
No super low mode. But I've got squeeze lights for that.
