I like the concept of that light, and would be interested in it in the future, but my next light will be an 18650 light (or one that I can modify for 18650) with moonlight mode between .5-1 lumen and have the ability to tail stand.C20cvn is a good small 18650 edc Imo. No control ring though
Mine is also about the same brightness as stock TO MY EYES. Eyes can be deceptive. We don't see the warmer Vn color as brightly as the blue color of my stock model. The warmer xml2 is also less efficient so at the same current as stock would look dimmer. Still, in a sphere I bet 2.4 amps of my higher cri vin model produces more lumens than 1.5 amps from the cool white version.
