    A little fat for EDC and long for an 18350 battery (obviously the ramping ring takes up a good amount of the length.) The ramping performance and throw is nice though. The SS bezel is nice as well.

    Just so everyone knows the reflector of the W1 version will be tuned and then glued in place just like all of the other W1 and W2 reflector builds. This mean if the LED goes bad we are kinda screwed. Fortunately no issues yet :-)

    How would you compare the smoothness/performance of the ramp compared to an Anduril based electronic switch light like the Emisars and Fireflies?

    Hard to compare mechanical to electronic press and hold. I sure as heck like to turn the ring back and forth until I get exactly what I want then to press and hold to ramp up and then press and hold to ramp down to catch the mode I want. But I am heavily mechanical bias. I prefer toggle switches over touch screen for example..

    How do I get in on batch 3? & do you have Nichia 219b 9080 @ 4500?

    The famous 219B SW45K tint R9080 is discontinued. It would be hard to find more. However, Nichia E21A in R9080 has very much the same on or below BBL tint to it, and is even slightly better at color rendering than the old 219B, not to mention more efficient. Its main draback is low forward voltage, making it hard to use for anything that's direct-driven, but I don't see as much of an issue with this host and battery.

    Luminus SST20 3000k and 4000k 95CRI leds are also basically R9080 rated as well. Actually they're R9580, plus they're throw better to boot.

    Does it come in 4500? 4K is too yellow& 5 k usually too blue.

    Yeah, they donít make them, but they still have a following. The 4500 9080 seems to be right in that not yellow/not blue sweet spot for me.

    Hi Vinh,

    I watched your video and checked out the options on the website but I am not clear about all your terminology. I am very interested in this light and have a stock one that was already ordered but I'd much rather have a version with a good emitter that I like. You keep referring to the White1 option being your favorite. I assume this is some term you made up but what sort of emitter is this and why does it have less than half of the stock emitter (400 vs 900 lumens)? I don't really care about the output but it seems like this is a big step back. Is this due to a better tint or CRI? Can you do Nichia 219 as mentioned or Samsung high CRI?

    Thanks,
    David
    Peace!

    I can do any led u want. Just email me for it. White1 is an osram flat led that gives exceptional throw but low overall output.
