    Not big enough but AFAIK LF is committed to keeping certain parts ecosystem going.
    The shrouded Z62 (A2) boot retainer ring is one such example.
    In a few weeks time replacement boots will also be available for purchase.

    Other than the Onion Rings, who else was making the dimmable neutral white LED rings for the A2? I'm going to get rid of mine and can't remember who I ordered it from.

    @calipsoii made these for a relatively brief while, with a different design and features

    There was also the Aviatrix version, long ago, by Atomic Chicken

    That's it! I bought a few of the Calipsoii rings and that's what I still have with this one. One of the best things was the incredible low level, and that the ring matched the tint of the incandescent main bulb.

    You're the one who encouraged me to even try these in the first place and they're an incredible light with the upgraded ring.

    Archimedes answered it - it was Calipsoii, and I don't know if he's still around or not, but they should have made them using his rings right from the factory.

    Yes, they are fantastic, and I have a couple of these.

    May I know when this request was made? Just recently, or months/years ago?

    Sorry, thought it was implied in context with the thread that it was recent. To be exact, I emailed them 8/26, reply received 9/4 and two tailcaps received 9/14.

    Probably no new Calipsoii rings available anymore more though I assume? After getting my first one I thought they were the absolute bomb for the A2, especially with the tint and incredible low level programability.
