    Default Progress on August's Batch

    April's batch, which actually showed up in June sold quickly as most of you know. I've started progress on the next batch would should be ready in late August some time.

    The Oklahoma secretary of state just reminded me that we're coming up on one year since Okluma was incorporated. I'm pretty excited about this, but it's also a little discouraging in that a lot of you haven't had the opportunity to purchase a flashlight from me. That's going to change with this next batch. Primarily it will be aluminum flashlights. I will be making a handful of copper lights and selling them at the drop like normal, but I may also do a few flash sales here on CPF and over on Instagram.

    Last week while I was cleaning up the shop (which takes more time than you'd think), I thought it'd be fun to make a little Okluma paraphernalia which some of you have asked about. I'm calling these Okluma Ti coins. They're about the size of a half dollar, cut from 1/8" thick titanium, and heavily stone washed. They're up for sale on my site here: http://okluma.com/products/okluma-ti-coin.

    Yes, I am in for a Aluminum light. I want to try one out.
    I missed out on the last batch due to having to fund other "hobbies". The door fell off my clothes washer! It was 10 years old. I have fixed it a half dozen times. It finally gave up the ghost about time you did your drop! lol But now, I am ready and wearing clean underwear! Oh I did a top load washer this time & a new dryer!
    I signed up to the email list this time. I assume you send out a announcement?
    Interested in Saltytri lights. Pm me!

    I've missed out on all the batches so far, but I'm a patient man! Looking forward to the chance for an aluminum, for sure!
    ...and He separated the light from darkness. Check out my lights.

    I've read that this batch will be aluminum but wondering if you'll have the wooden boxes available? If I get one, it will be a wedding present and the box would be a nice touch.

    Is there a big difference with the copper pill upgrade?

    Which lens is better for edc- used but taken care of?

    Copper weighs much more than aluminum but is able to absorb more heat. So your emitters stay cooler for a longer period of time.
    Sapphire lens is able to withstand small scratches better but not shatter proof. It will still crack if u drop it hard enough...

    Thanks, so the copper is more for the longevity of the LEDs or for actual performance?
    If it's a trade off of weight vs. longevity- for me that's not as important, but if it's weight vs. performance that will make a diff.

    Got my TinyDC today, safe and sound. Love the new clip!

    It feels about one pound lighter than the brass model, so I am really enjoying that.

    Jeff thanks again for everything!

    I'm loving the aluminum TinyDC, great beautiful design in a light weight package. Something you don't get with the other metals. I have other lights but this one has been in my pocket 5/7 days a week due to weight

    Default Re: Progress on August's Batch

    +1 to everything Luckyonion said ^^^. We all have lots of choices but this is the light I reach for everyday. The TinyDC is literally perfect.

    I bought mine used so I don't expect an invite to Jeff's appreciation banquet but y'all will def see me at the after party!

    Default Re: Progress on August's Batch

    Anyone know if there's a video review on the TinyDC ? Or whether Jeff has any plans to build more or possibly a new creation? This light feels so good in my hand I can't put it down. I discharged two 700mAh and one 800mAh cells last night alone... and that's despite me receiving a new awesome light in the mail yesterday.

    Hey, I haven't seen any video reviews of Okluma. But I probably haven't looked since August. Next batch I hear will be more Ti, with scatterings of brass, aluminum and copper. (Someone can correct me if I'm wrong). Also he migh do some lottos in the mean time.

    Default Re: Progress on August's Batch

    Sounds nice! Yeah I've searched and haven't found any reviews... was hoping to hear someone brag about it like I do. Lottos... as in a lottery?

  19. #19

    Default Re: Progress on August's Batch

    Yeah. Would be nice. I love this light. On instagram he said he finished a few copper and brass and was thinking about doing lottery to purchase rather than who can hit a button faster

    Default Re: Progress on August's Batch

    Oh wow, so Jeff has more customers waiting to buy than he can accommodate. I read somewhere that he sold out a batch in something like seven minutes. That's nuts, if true.

    Oh well at least I have one. Hey wait a minute.... I apparently have a short term memory issue, but I believe I have YOU to thank for my TinyDC. Yes?

    Default Re: Progress on August's Batch

    I think so. Glad you like it. I still carry my mine more than most. I think he'll so a drop at some point but in the mean time he's talking about a few lottery lights. I think I miss spoke I think next drop will include Ti and ceracote

  22. #22

    Default Re: Progress on August's Batch

    Yes indeed glad your liking it. He will probably drop next lights in next month or so. Ti and cerakote alum

    Has anyone ever measured the lumen output across the various modes? For example, what type of output will you get from Low & Medium mode?

    Also, in the light specs, it says "on-time memory"... Does that simply mean that the light will remember the last mode that was used after its been off for awhile? Or is this a time-sensitive type of memory and the light will eventually revert back to Moon Light mode after it's been off for awhile?

    Thanks!

    On time memory: it will remember the last used mode (after more than a few seconds).

    If u want it to start at moon light all the time, u will need a no-memory driver or u can ask Jeff to reprogram it for u.

    Thanks for the explanation... That's the type of memory I would prefer....

    I'd like to get in on tonight's fun but I don't know how to go about ordering all the extras I would want... like trits and glow, specific LED, etc. Not sure what the difference is between the optic offered and the drilled option either, among other things. I haven't noticed an email address posted, but I don't think I'd be comfortable bombarding Jeff with 4th grade level questions anyway, so.... I have much to learn.

    I recently made a critical error (which I'll have to live with) when placing an order for a Haiku, but that's what happens when a pup tries to run with the big dogs.

    A side note: Yesterday (after some thought and effort) I was able to acquire a star shaped tool, which I was able to use to remove the clip from my TinyDC. The light feels much better in my hand now. I'm so proud of myself. lol
