    How does the beam from 4000K SST20 compare to a Nichia 219 or XP-L hi in the same temp? Both in terms of beam shape and tint.

    Thanks! There's a good possibility a spec 5 is in my future.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.

    HI will have the highest output and throw but least CRI. SST20 most HCRI with medium thorw but least lumen. Nichiren has middle ground and output
    . Both in terms of beam shape and tint.

    Thanks! There's a good possibility a spec 5 is in my future. Decide fast as I have just one left in stock. I am not sure I can get that many more too...This model is discontinued and to me and many it looks better than the new body style.

    Agreed - when I ordered, I saw the new model online and thought "Oh no, I hope Vinh is using the prior one, like in his pictures" - it is much better looking IMHO.

    Per chance, is the heat-treated one pictured sitting there waiting to be bought, or is it already sold?

    That one is sold. But I am getting better with HC so I can redo another ;-)

    I only found one place to still carry this light online. Andrew and Amanda. Most customers prefer this older body style including myself. The new one looks a little awkward.

    Just got my D25C. I quite like the tint and beam, but I have had no success programming it.

    Here's what I have done:

    turn on - click ten times quickly - *light slow blinks* - click deck number - *light fast blinks* - click group number - *light fast blinks briefly, then returns to max*

    But it always ends up staying as single mode max. I have tried this routine 20 or so times trying for different decks and mode group, even simple ones like 10-1-2, but it always stays in single mode max. Any idea what's going on?

    Correct. I have had other VN4/reverse clicky lights before and never had an issue programming them.

    It was originally locked but I unlocked it. I know it's unlocked because it slow blinks after ten clicks.

    Well now I feel dumb. I always thought the blinking meant ready to program.

    Thanks for the tip! All is well now and enjoying the excellently spaced 10-5-5

    Hi, pretty new to your work and I love this light. Definitely interestedd. Just curious, are all your VN drivers actually proprietary to / designed by you or are they rebadged popular drivers, a la BLF, A6, Bistro, etc (I know those are firmwares, but I think you know what I'm asking)?
    Peace!

    No one has DriverVN4 and DriverVNX3 UI besides me other there could be variations that are somewhat similar.

    Would it be possible to use cr123 primary batteries?

    What would happen if you did?

    Vinh I think this light is one of the best out there. Sad to see it go but happy it was there! When I first got into flashlights, and a few months in found your stuff, this became my holy grail. I am very happy with my collection of them, glad I got that 219b in there.....

    Is the reflector different in the new body style? Any potential changes besides looks?

    Same performance. They just wanted to make it look uglier. Completely random design on the new one. Would even look better if they left it 100% plain with no design.

    Right now Eagtac is adding a D3C Titanium to their page: the name is already there, but the corresponding page is partial and garbled so far. And no image yet. I wonder how this one will look

    HOPEFULLY it can take 18350 cells, that's really the only downside to the D25Cvn. If so, I'm gonna have to start another collection......

    Gosh, I dislike Eagletac's naming "system." So is the D3C the replacement for the D25C?

    It seems like it is, but they are still selling the D25C. It looks much better than the D25C though, IMO, and it doesn't appear to run on any different cells, like an 18350, which would have been awesome. They have a ridiculous amount of overlap and crossover.
