    I truly think your gonna be surprised by all your supporters once this light gets launched.
    For your future lights, can we expect to see a rectangular host? Like an updated version of the fenix ld50vn?
    i always wanted one but never got one during the sales. Always gotten beat.
    I like that itís very different and pocket friendly.

    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.




    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



    5. Form & Dimensions



    • Among shortest in class yet able to accept all varieties of cell length
    • Sleek and minimalist with a touch of industrial exterior design
    • Minimal laser engravings
    • Tail stand & Anti-roll
    • Least body housing parts assembly for strength & reliability
    • Thick housing wall for strength
    • Numerous thread for strength and smoothness
    • Double Oring at body ends for reliable water resistance




    6.

    More details to come ...

    More details to come ... Since this is customs light so, Can you consider a groove for Trits ( for those who wants to add on later , please

  14. #104

    Default Re: Will you support my 1st light? "Project Genesis"

    Groove for trits will be available down the road on special editions should this light prove popular and of course if profiting. This is my first attempt so I have to invest in features that I consider must have to make the light bullet proof. Reliability and durability are my 2 biggest goal with this light. This is also a very simple light but to me is very elegant but utilitarian. I slept on the design many nights and realized there are already many overly design lights on the market. I too might make something super fancy in the future but for this first project I really want to stay simple. For me personally, a simple but useful and dependable tool is usually timeless.

    YES. Will support 100%. If people feel strongly about trits maybe an optional tail that could accommodate trits could be an offering after the initial run...or an alternative clip that had trits-many potentially viable options....

    My next light might be a CPF collaboration but this first one I want it to be a 100% Sky Lumen team effort.

    Considering what the intention of this light is. If it has nice deep basic knurling ( similar to old school Surefire), you can count me in. IMO, nothing provides a better grip then nice deep knurling. Nothing fancy. And the ability to run 2 123's or single 16650 would be cool and keep the body size to a minimum for EDC.

    I know the project name is Genesis, but have you come up with a name for the light yet?

    Definitely interested. Would really like to see at least a sketch of the design.

    Vinh, I see you're doing a fund raising sale to help the cost of producing this light. What about letting those interested prepay? A hundred percent of that money would then go to funding the light. I know you don't have a price yet, but we could always pay the rest when you do or you can refund the extra paid later.
    Sometimes we don't get what we pray for. Sometimes we get much more.

    I have done pre-order before but in this case I don't have the cost numbers in hand yet. We are still in the computer design phase. Once I have at least a Proto-type model in hand then may be I will do a pre-order.

    Yea I don't mind paying you up front or a portion of it. Tesla charged $1,000 to preorder the Model 3, which helped them fund the production of the car since they were cash strapped.
