    A pocket thrower would not be a bad thing. I think it can use either the tactical or pro tail cap.

    The TK20. Yes it still rocks.

    Or the Turbo Flat tailcap works nice too.

    Mk ii brought back in Ti. Maybe with your twist on it. Also as others have mentioned a smaller 18350 style with possible extension for 18650. Sweet if was a triple Nichia.

    Aluminium, copper, titanium and stainless steel AAA/10440 lights with NoPWM (or >16kHz), HiCRI LED, TIR and reflector and mule variants, with side or tail switch models.

    Please make some quark replacement parts. At least make available some switches.

    Thinking about going two tone on Quarks. HAIII Natural for the main color and black accents. Also exploring the 80CRI Nichia 319 with a@hexagon shaped die. Performance should be close to the XM-L2 or XPL-HD. Thoughts? https://twitter.com/4sevens

    Love the look of those Quarks! Please say they will be thread compatible with the legacy parts, and current controlled.

    I'd love to see something with a couple of 26650 batteries in it, to last a good long time at fairly high output.

    I want to see lights that DON'T use the awful multi-twist interface. (multi-click is almost as irritating, but at least it doesn't wear-out the threads.) It's especially problematic on limited-edition titanium lights. Progressive-twist is approximately 513x better than multi-twist, and I'd pay a premium any day for the extra engineering required to make a multi-twist (or control-ring!) interface work properly. I shouldn't need two hands to select the brightness on my flashlight.

    Unfortunately any “progressive twist head to select modes” design is prevented by Surefire’s lawyers.

    Surefire has a pretty well earned reputation for their lawsuits, which I feel are pretty frivolous, but they have deep pockets and expensive lawyers.

    I think surefire also patented the color black. And light. And the word flashlight.
    GOOD TINT!

    Who is "Surefire"? Are they a subsidiary of Suefire?

    Yes, Suefire owns all things flashlight related.

    It’s insane that they can “own” such a basic design concept, and would be willing to sue over its use, and yet they don’t even make a single flashlight that uses that technology. Haven’t for a long time. Ridiculous. Sorry that I got us kinda off topic.

    I would love to see a return of the Atom series of lights with maybe even some emitter options. They are wonderfully simple lights that are insanely compact. Literally smaller than many or all of the spare cell carriers out there.

    On my keychain I have a V.1 Black Beta with a CPF 15th anniversary Atom A0 acting as a backup light/alternate beam pattern/long long runtime option/spare cell carrier for the beta. It’s literally smaller than the AAA spare cell holder from county comm, and it doubles as a very nice mule light.

    I’d love to see the return of the AAA, AA, and 123A versions with the nicer emitters Prometheus Lights is known for.

    And what about magnetic ring interface? For example, my TN32 features it and it is wonderful.

    How do other manufacturers get away with it?

    This. And a forward clicky body for the Mini Turbo, please. (And back on topic please, which was a 4sevens wishlist if I recall...)

    Yea. Sometimes I carry the Mini Turbo for a UL trail finder. A clicky would be nice. Also NW. In fact NW and Clicky would make it fantastic.
    The TK20. Yes it still rocks.

    How about a voice UI, like Star Trek ?
