    Yes, the Lumenite is the one I was referring to, despite my fubar PM I sent. Thanks for the info!

    I'd love to get in the queue for a 26350 Lumenite! These are so awesome.

    I'm at the shop right now, but I'll weigh the unit and post it when I get home.

    Yes, they are compatible with protected 18650s. The only cells I would not recommend are low-amperage-drain cells and cells that have a dangerously high minimum low voltage (the lower than 3v the better).

    The weight is 4.2 oz (119.1g) with battery, 3.5 oz (99.2g) empty.

    Could you also post the weight of the Lumenite 26350 and the 18650?

    I got mine, I really like them. These things seem like they could be shot out of a cannon they are that beefy strong.

    I appreciate it! And I appreciate feedback from these new designs - I'm taking notes from all you early adopters and am changing the designs for the better with every trip I machine parts.

    Thanks again,

    Yes, I can post this tomorrow when I get back to the house.

    Wow, I like the simplicity, it's genius.
    No inductor whine, no resistors to fail, no intermittent switches, no magnetic rings to repack like trailer hubs, no morse code like settings to memorize...

    Please put me on the list for 2 (two) of the 18350 Tiny Nuggets.

    @TheFraz, do you know if this could work with a high CRI emitter like an SST20 or a Nichia, or would the current potentially destroy the emitter? I’m still in for a Lumenite either way. Just trying to figure out if I can make this even more “ideal.”

    Thank you! That is exactly what I wanted to do...eliminate failure points, keep a simple user interface, and have an ultra-durable tool.

    I added you to the list. I just got back with quite a few components, so it's catch-up time.

    Got some in the mail today I'm about to test ! I suspect they should work great as long as the voltage forward changes aren't something crazy.

    Honestly can’t wait to get my hands on one of these. This thing just seems amazing.

    Cool light. Put me in for a 18350. What emitter options available?

    Will there be a list visible so we know if we are including in this?

    After so many threads, it's just a question. If I don't get one, I'll be disappointed but not gutted.

    As posted earlier a few times, would love a 18350.

    I just got some Nichia high cri variants, some SST20s, Cree XM-L2, XM-L HI, XP-L, and XP-L HIs. All of them are no higher than 5k. So far I love the SST20s in the Tiny Nuggets....the lower forward voltage really makes it pop. Also it works better with the optics. More on that later...

    Working on assembly now to catch up....I am going to put up a beamshot comparison shortly with the various offerings.

    Yes! And I have your components saved Obi, I am working on a system (I have people Pming me through here, Instagram, and Facebook). I will definitely fill all the orders - I have been keeping up with the list on paper, but I will post it here. I just need a bit of time. I've been trying to allocate time to catch-up on part machining.
