    Mark, I was PM'ing a fellow forum member about his lost E2O. He just has the head and burned out lamp, lost the body and tailcap. I was recommending your replacement parts and I noticed that you don't exactly offer an MN02 type lamp assembly. For some reason I thought the 50 lumen one was, but then as I was looking I saw and remembered that it was a 3.6V lamp. Just a suggestion, but it might be nice to offer an E2O replacement in the line-up. Something 6V in the 40-50 lumen range. I'm not sure it would be a big seller, but might fill in a gap there if you have the opportunity to make some at some point.

    +1 on this. That was a great bulb with great runtime.

    I still use them in a couple lights all the time. I actually have a good stash of them and I've never burned one out. I even have a couple old E2e's configured with the long pocket clip. One is a little more used and has a Z57, I carry it pretty often. I don't carry any actual E2O's, they're too much of collector items these days. Especially the two flats body version.

    Hi Ampdude,

    Thank you for recommending our products to him, I am grateful for the kind gesture.

    Unfortunately, developing a new incandescent lamp is next to impossible nowadays in 2021.
    Incandescent sales is a fraction of a fraction of what it once was and we are struggling even to keep the incandescent line-up available.
    We will do our best keep the incandescent line-up available, but making a new model is not possible with the limited resource at hand and the already small and continuously diminishing market.

    Cheers.

    Mark, finally got to the parts I ordered. Thank you for the extras. You read my mind, the "mystery item" is exactly what I was looking for! When I get a chance I'll be removing the McClicky and installing that. For the time being it will remain McClicky though. This E2D came with the original (unreliable) version of the scalloped Z68. This is definitely a huge improvement. Definitely will like some of these in HA twisty to make some cold weather friendly E2's/E2e's.

    Do you still have any of the single cell bodies from the miscolored Natural batch?

    Do you know what 18350s are compatible with the single cell bodies?

    I look forward to making a great EDC light with this body, one of your Deep Pocket Carry Tailcap, and my Malkoff E2HT!

    Re new incand bulbs, I think fivemega/tad's type adapter for bipin bulbs would be a more realistic solution. There are still plenty bulbs with whatever voltage you want and 5mm leds also fit. Even 1.5 bulbs are available, going to get some for the future AA body

    Soon, all the new items that you see that only has the HA3 Black should have a HA3 Natural version to begin with.
    If it was not for the bad shade, it would have been released together with the HA3 Black.

    I am making a new batch, fingers crossed that they will turn out good.


    Cheers.

    That is exactly what I am trying to do.
    Trying to bring back the old school, but want to spice them up a little.

    Yes, I still have the entire batch sitting here. LOL.
    Might bring them out as discounted "Close Outs" in the near future.
    They are actually quite rare as I have only made 100 pcs of the 1 cell and 2 cell bodies as the initial test batch and stopped after the shade were not satisfactory.
    So these mis-shaded" ones are actually a rare piece of Lumens Factory history in a sense.

    Has anyone run these with a Malkoff MDC head yet? The E1 with the deep carry clip seems like a perfect compact EDC with the MDC head.

    I agree, the Malkoff heads with this small body seem to be the answer I was looking for. I love my E2HT head on a SF 2 cell E body using 16650, but I really wanted a shorter 1 cell setup that could actually take a rechargeable with decent capacity/runtime (ie 18350).

    Same. Complete dorks need matching anodizing on their lights. It doesn't lend to the strength or have any purpose. Type III anodizing just goes how it goes depending on the material it's binding to. The anodizing is important, and having lighter or darker colors on parts has no effect on the real world performance. And IMO looks good too.

    I have a lot of old school Surefire lights that have different colored parts depending on the anodizing and they look awesome.

    I have a few products that I bought from LF and they're top quality.

    I'm waiting for billing so I can purchase a few more of their creative and well machined items.

    Hi yclo, are the head thread of the Oveready body anodized? Does it work with other heads like SF/Malkoff?

    The threads are anodized with only the top surface exposed, see the picture here.

    Most SF heads (and probably Malkoff) should work with the exception of some that require longer threads like the SF E2T Tactician. My E2T head doesn't work on most E series bodies.

    Lumens Factory Z grip rings fit perfectly.
