    Default Okluma TinyDC Aluminum - Video Overview

    Hi all, I noticed that there wasn't really any reviews online about this light, so I decided to make my own! Honestly, this is such a great light and it deserves so much more attention. It has now become one of my favorite lights and the one I'll definitely be carrying everyday. I have to give a big thanks to luckyonion for selling me his!

    Here is the link to the YouTube video I made:

    If you want to watch the horrible original one

    Go easy on me, because this is the first time I've ever done an overview!

    Hey, thanks for the review!

    The stickers were Gunga's idea, and used with his permission. They are stock.

    If you need anything or have trouble, please let me know!

    Hiya. While I recommended Jeff include the glow, I only provided the samples. Jeff has a separate supply of green (only) stockers.

    Does my TinyDC have the copper pill? It appears to be copper in color.

    What for? Makes the aluminum light very front heavy.

    Default Re: Okluma TinyDC Aluminum - Video Overview

    I dunno... because it's an upgrade which would manage heat better and maybe make the light more valuable? I dunno...

    I suppose I'll just skip it then. Maybe get a Ti during the next drop. I dunno...

    Yeah Wimmer, looks like you don't have the copper pill yet. It does make it heavier but dissipates the heat a lot better

    It depends on how much you use the max mode. I didn't like copper because it always felt like the light would fall out because it was front heavy. Aluminum is also a great heat conductor. So it all depends on what you need /want

    I had both. Sold the aluminum. Trying to slim down the collection and needed funds.

    I think I may have won the lotto for the nickel bronze. I haven't heard from Jeff yet but I have a good feeling about this.

    Thank you for sharing this item. I missed three of Jeff's sales. And your upgrade is quite the nice addition.

    I can't tell which one I like to edc more. Custom Tinidc or modified haiku.

    Does the TidyDC run on CR123 for emergency use?

    Yes, but not on high - bad idea.

    I think the other thing to remember is that the TinyDC is quite moddable. The Dr Jones H17F driver is crazy programmable (though any common 17mm driver will fit) and you can pick practically any LED you want (with 3.5mm footprint) on it. You can change it every time you find something new or better.

    I really appreciate lights that are truly future proof.
