    thanks.

    4000K hands down if you have to pick one. Tint is stellar, beam is great and still feels at home as a Malkoff. If you are a big fan of warm, this current 3000K SST tint is sublime and seems to be higher output than the old XP-G2 80CRI, making the 3000K the no-brainer.

    I'd get the 5700K if that higher output and thermal efficiency are important, IE you really want to maximize your lumens/ MA, might put mine on my 870. WML/ duty light kinda situations.

    Try customlites.com. He may have a 4500k drop in. Iíve used those in an MD2 before.

    That said, Iíve had a 4000k and a 3000k in the new SST drop in. The 3000k are amazing! Almost perfect.

    I wonder if it'll be the first MD2 in Argentina? It won't be the first Malkoff, that's for sure.

    I went with the N and not W so I can have an excuse to get the amber group buy dropin from dot.

    Great choice. You will find it to be a very versatile light. I have hundreds of hours of pre-dawn walks with my MD2.

    Nice shots. The neutral looks amazing!


    Can anyone confirm that both the new HD and Wildcat will run on 1x18650? Not the 18650 model the regular MD4 setup. Iím pretty sure I read that both do, but canít confirm it.

    Thanks!

    My 2 week old Hound Dog does power on on an 18650, but I haven't run it for any length of time.

    Junkies, I am a long time user of the Hound Dog format (both the single cell and the higher voltage models). Mine are and have been reflector based. Do I need the newer version with the lens? Am I missing out?

    Was wondering the same thing. The one thing I love with my older reflector based HD is it had good throw but great spill as well. Iím not sure if the new ďtirĒ for lack of better words is going to have that.

    I too, love my HD 18650. Itís my nightly go-to for taking the dog out and sweeping around my modest property. Iím reasonably sure I donít exactly need a Super...but...well...you know...

    If I based all my purchases on "Need", I would never have the fun toys I want.
    Just ordered the HD Super. Got the email and jumped.

    What do you use it for?
    The current HD's spot is close in size to a M61's, just much more intense. It looks bigger at short range due to the bright corona, which the M61 doesn't have. The spill is bright, but only half as wide as the M61's(edit: in a 16.5mm head), so the overall beam is a lot smaller.
    If you want to light up the ground in front of you, this isn't the right tool for the job. If you want to light up something in the back corner of your yard(or your neighbor's yard, or your neighbor's neighbor's neighbor's yard) it is.

    I have an HD Super just ordered and have a HD 18650. I will at least to be able to compare those two myself.
    Excited waiting for the shipping email notification.

    old hound dog 18650 (reflector)
    - less throw
    - more spill
    - balanced beam
    - beam with more homogeneous transition


    new hound 18650 (tir)
    - much more throw
    - less spill
    - less balanced beam
    - beam with less homogeneous transition
    - because it is possible to use the lenses (1 degree or 5 degrees) then more versatility is gained.
    I often say that the new hound dog 18650 is a 3 in 1 product.


    the same features apply to the new traditional hound dog model (which uses 2x 18650)

    I see on the M361 GB that a possibility of a Nichia 219B 4500k 9080 may be included.
    this is really good, a grail LED, and still going after some years.

    is this a good LED in Gene's Drop In's?.

    could a Samsung 90 CRI 5700 LH351D be better?

    thanks.

    Better is relative. The characteristics of the LH351D are well known and reviewed. Those characteristics, along with stated specs for high CRI versions > 219B SW45 D200 or the SST-20 5700K (IMO). The problem is finding bare SPHWHTL3DA0GF4QTW6 (or similar). That alone stops the conversation in its tracks.

    Some of you were asking about the regular Hound Dog on 1x18650.

    Slow night, so I took beamshots periodically, starting at midnight. Could only fit 9 in this collage studio thing...
    Samsung S9 Pro mode
    F1.5, 1/15s, ISO 800, WB 4500K
    Keeppower 3500mah protected cell


    1. :00
    Initial brightness.
    2. :40
    Gradually dimming.
    3. 1:00
    Yes, it briefly got brighter, but...
    4. 1:20
    ...back to gradually dimming.
    5. 1:30
    Now dimming more rapidly.
    6. 2:00
    Same.
    7. 2:10
    Dropping like a rock.
    8. 2:30
    Winding down.
    9. 2:45
    Last beamshot. 2:30-2:45, output is lower than the low beam on 2x18650, though there's still more lux than M61N(whose spot does not illuminate that building at this range/camera settings/conditions).
    Figured running it on a single cell was pointless, but I was curious. It's quite usable for an hour and a half or so, but a big step down from full output. Due to the head size, a shorter body doesn't really make the light more portable, so no MD3/18500s for me, either. Rather stick with 2x18650, and get the most out of it.
    I already knew that, but wanted to "play flashlight", and made myself leave the MD4 body at home so I wouldn't immediately go back to using it...

    Edit: I let the light run to a bit past the 5hr mark, just to see if the battery's protection circuit would kick in. The last hour, it went from probably 10-15 lumens to maybe 5(different beam type, but my EDC Zebralight has 2.7, 7.9, and 20.3 lumen modes to compare to).
    Battery showed 2.85V when I got home.
