Thread: The Official Malkoff Junkie thread - Part 2

    Thanks guys, based on your interest along with a couple of other users from a few years ago who mentioned they would love a SHO AA, I have created a poll in this thread:
    https://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb...MDC-HA-SHO-1AA

    I think I overdid it with the FAQ, just wanted to be thorough.

    I wouldn't say that there's little interest. It's just challenging to keep various Malkoff threads organized. HDS has a dedicated sub-forum that keeps the threads bundled together. Like Bykfixer said, we'd need a way of grouping the threads together. Basically, we just need one box to keep our toys in.

    Isn't the problem that there's no-one to moderate a Malkoff Forum?
    Hogo does the HDS one, but I think without a dedicated moderator there cannot be a Malkoff Forum to group the various threads under.
    I can't do it, I'm far too grumpy.

    The HDS was a special case; in all other cases those subforums are moderated by a manuf. associate.

    I completely agree. I have a handfull of AAA lights but anything Malkoff made would be fantastic. I would also like to see it run on 10440 rechargeables giving me an option.

    With the E01 now discontinued and Arc no more maybe there is an opening for a bomb proof PSK AAA light. I have E01s in several PSKs. However maybe these lights are no longer made for a reason aka low demand.
    The TK20. Yes it still rocks.

    I would go AAA SHO for sure, not so sure about a AA though.

    Different subject: Looking for compact Malkoff Thrower for when the XM-L is too large with the MD4 body. Which one would you chose below?

    An E2 Hyper Throw/Scout M600 2CR123 High Output Head on a MDC 18650 to E-Series Body? (500 lumens 35,000 Lux)
    Or would I be better off with a MDX 22.3-M61HOT Throw Head on a MD2 body? (740 lumens 20,000 Lux)?

    So here we are again; we have a fresh new thread discussing the concept of a 1xAA MDC 'SHO', and many posters still want to discuss that topic here in this thread - at the same time they are posting there as well.

    Relevant posts moved to the other thread.

    It's one thing to say that members would like organization, but the evidence is to the contrary yet again.

    Edit: Not being grumpy here, just amused.
    I will do what I can to obtain a modicum of organization, but am certainly not volunteering to maintain a Malkoff thread compendium / subforum.

    Hi,
    Can you explain to me how things are:

    1) Does Malkoff have holiday sales, such as July 4, Black Friday, etc.?
    2) Does Malkoff offer discount for students, veterans, forum members (the code is “CPF” if I understand correctly)?
    3) How to apply Malkoff “20% off 1st purchase”?

    I’m not lowballing Malkoff quality or service, just trying to be frugal.

    QMT93,
    I can't answer your questions, but one thing to do is to email the Malkoffs (from their website), and ask to be placed on their email list. This should get you notifications for when they have sales. You might also want to ask them then how to apply for the 20% off first purchase discount.

    Yes, once you sign up for their email list, you will be emailed your 20% off coupon code. If you have Gmail look under your promotions folder. I was on the phone with Gene while looking for mine and he said I should have it, but I never found it, two days later I saw it in my promotions folder. He just manually gave me the discount off over the phone. You can't get better lights and customer service.

    I did that, and am waiting for their reply. Thank you for reminding me about this!

    I subscribed more than 3 days ago if I recall correctly, but I haven't seen it, so I messaged them on Facebook to ask if they can check to see whether I'm on the mailing list. And yes, their reputation is pretty much indisputable.

    Ah, the fox problem I didn't hear about. I read the article on the Medium, but no fox was involved :P. Hope they have already got rid of that.

    Gene will sometimes have "Flash" sales for 15% or 20% off. I don't remember thinking that those sales correspond to major holidays, although he may do that from time to time. It won't be advertised on the website, though. You have to be on the mailing list and use the specified coupon code. Don't worry if you couldn't find the first email from Malkoff. Just keep an eye on this forum. The junkies will surely chatter about any flash sales.

    Not sure about students and veterans, but I don't think there is a CPF discount. (If there is, I've been missing out!) However, once you buy a Malkoff flashlight, you'll have the opportunity to post a review in exchange for another discount coupon. It's a vicious cycle, really. Gene is a drug pusher.

    At the time of purchase, you'll have the opportunity to enter the discount code.

    Ah, Gene and Cathy have replied to my message, and I have received the email. But I didn't know about the review thing, so thank you for that. "Drug pusher"? More like "powerful light", if you watch Star Wars :P

    Hi guys,

    What is the difference between a regular tailcap and a tricap? On the M61T MD2, single-output comes with a regular tailcap, but hi/lo comes with a tricap. On the Hound Dog XM-L, which comes in hi/lo, tricap is $10 more. Does it do anything on the Hound Dog XM-L?

    The tricap is just the outside shape is different to the standard tailcap, it is still a clicky switch.

    The hi-Low ring/switch is installed in the head of Malkoff lights.

    Ya it’s just a much nicer looking design. It is a little longer then the standard tail cap tho. Also it is flared a little at the end making it easier I think to hold on to.if you look at my lights 4th and 5th from the left you can see the difference side by side.

    The tricap is revolutionary. Apart from good looks, it also makes the button easier to reach. For example, my wife struggles to actuate the switch on the standard tail cap, but she has an easier time with the tricap. Additionally, the tricap acts as an anti-roll device. Prior to the days of the tricap, Malkoff flashlights could be trusted to roll around like a loose ball bearing. That was, in my opinion, the only demerit of the Malkoff design.

    If it won't cause hoslter fitment issues for you, then I highly recommend the tricap. If it will cause holster fitment issues, then I recommend the tricap and a custom made holster.

    Good point about anti roll with that tail cap. Your right there really isn’t much that can be improved on genes design. Top notch light.
