Thread: Project Genesis - Sky Lumen Nguyen (It's Here!)

    Great throw AND great flood would be epic. Best of both worlds in one light all made in the USA. I’d want one for me and for my loved ones. It wouldn’t be the Ultimate in either category, but it could become the best all-arounder

    Concrete Project Genesis Details:
    1. Made in USA - Electronics, Host & Assembly

    2. 7075 Aluminum Housing - Most flashlights are made of 6061 Aluminum


    • 6061 VS Structural Carbon Steel VS 7075
    • Brinell hardness: 95 VS 140 VS 150
    • Ultimate Tensile Strength: 310Mpa VS 480Mpa VS 565Mpa
    • Shear Strength: 207Mpa VS 300Mpa VS 331Mpa



    3. 3mm thick Anti-Reflective Tempered/Safety Lens

    • Most lens are 1-2mm. Usually only the big boys like BLF GT and X65 sport ~3mm Lens. Heat treatment characteristic unknown.
    • I worked at Northwestern Industries (A glass company) for 2 summers in college.
    • Here I learned both glass and will are much stronger when tempered.
    • The slow cooling heat treatment process makes the glass tempered and thus under constant pressure from edge to edge.
    • Tempered glass are 4 times stronger than regular/annealed glass.
    • Strength Example: 1/4" Tempered = 1" Annealed (Impact and scratch resistant improved accordingly.)
    • It also break relatively safer into smaller pieces as oppose to longer sharp edges of the annealed.



    Stay tuned for more updates ;-)

    Those 7075 facts got me even more excited about the upcoming Fireflies ROT66. That 7075 aluminum is a nice touch! Enthusiast grade for sure-- glad Skylumen's first fully manufactured light will have it.

    Interested. I need flood more than throw, but flood with some reach also appeals. I enjoy my D4's - both the stock optic and wide optic - but wish there were a middle ground that could also sustain greater output than the D4.
    I apologize that this letter is so long; I did not have time to write a short letter

    D4s? ROT66? On that note though I like those lights with the similar medium throw optics that put all their light into a huge hotspot and nothing wasted on spill.

    Where'd my posts go? Anyways I'm really digging the facts about the 7075 aluminum. It makes this light a by enthusiasts for enthusiasts type of deal.

    I dont have anything in 7075 yet so I cant wait until proto testing.

    The only downside of the 7075 would be less heat conductivity though.

    This has peaked my curiosity. And sounds like we're not talking about a pocket light either.

    I have no doubt that the light will be the best of its kind knowing your attention to detail and your skill. I’d keep it in the price range that most are willing to spend, being your first custom light. As far as it being a historical moment in your flashlight career, how could I pass on the first ever “ Vinh” light?

    Count me in and GOOD LUCK!

    Have you considered alu 7068? The numbers would be 190, 683, 655.

    4. Type III Anodization (Black Color)


    • Anodization quality vary from one manufacture to another although most claimed Type III
    • I have not yet examine the quality of this USA shop to conclude
    • Tail cap thread anodize = Physical/mechanical lock out, no parasitic drain, safe transport
    • I discussed General info regarding anodization here

    Did you see this?

    Unless I am mistaken, Vinh just told us that the electrical pathway does not run through the body of the light: it has a dedicated conductor (heavy-gauge copper, most likely) from the negative-terminal up to the head.

    And *that* is why the extra resistance of the body does not matter!
