    Buttrock Lumapower DMini vs the moon

    I took my D-Mini for a short trip, the light being a super-thrower is magnificent when outdoors because it can throw really long and illuminate trails, trees, roads and many distant objects.
    This is a beamshot I took in a foggy night.

    The moon should o n l y be lit by the OP reflector or else you get dark and yellow rings seen worldwide

    Yeah it would be good if sum1 could do a comprison but i reckon with the Smooth reflector the D-Mini will be very hard to beat !!!

    Sometimes in my pocket it feels abit big but when i play with it it feels so small for the output it will be very very hard to beat on throw mayb not so with the output!!

    just my opinion!!!

    hehe D-Mini... i want a lightsabre... but i'd rather try somthing cheaper from DX 1st. I ordered their MTE SSC lights, both the AA and 2cr123 sized ones but the 2cr123 one came with a luxeon in it instead of da seoul for some reason and it couldnt even fit my protected 16340s...
    and wouldnt the reflector be about the same size as the D-Mini's?
    and aren't seouls menta throw further than crees with reflectors? but from all the beamshots and specs ive seen on CPF all the crees seem to throw further...

    oh yeah and hows D-Mini compare to the golston light in throw and output?

    I read that seouls output at a wider angle meaning more light shines to the side and hits the reflector whereas with crees it has a narrower angle so that less light hits the reflector...but the reflectors seem to be doing a pretty good job with both besides the darkring on crees... and why are all reflectors made for crees have the small silver ring on the emitter sticking out? wouldnt it be better for the reflector to go on top of or at level with the actual lense of the emitter? would that dark ring be caused by that silver ring on the emitter blockin some of the light from reaching the reflector? just a thought...

    I have a D-Mini, use it as my EDC. A low-mode would be handy but I think it's an amazing light. I use the polished reflector because it's fun to show off the throw. I was at a friend's a few days ago and showed his wife a small "turtle" keychain light I carry. She then showed me a flat, business-card LED light that she has so I invited her to come outside for a moment (at night) and I shone the D-Mini up the street. She was amazed. I have not used the orange-peel reflector yet, the polished one is too much fun.

    Change to the polished reflector, point to Saturn, and you'll see the greater throw, but with rings... Here's a closeup.

    You can get the 2 stage tailcap if you want a low mode. It works great.

    I guess I don't need fog here in the midwest...I switched my LP M1 to "light saber" mode last night, and could not believe all the crap in the air. Millions of little particles whizzing through the beam. Pollen is bad this year.
