Thread: Sky Lumen Nguyen Flashlight Torture Tests Videos

    I am going to make a long drive out to my usual shooting location to see if I can put a few shots on Proto V3 SLN Testing Sample tomorrow. If that doesn't work out I might have to ask for a volunteer.

    I really really cant wait to handle the production 7075 version and see all the final touches I added to the production light.

    I am also starting to work on the launch layout and all the exact details including what I know about pricing. So much more complicated than I thought. We will get there...

    Just got the chance to watch all the videos, during the drop test from the roof, I was flinching and hollering like one would at the tele for a football game. Each time I could see the beam still on it felt like a touchdown! I had to laugh at myself for such a reaction to a flashlight drop test, but nevertheless, it's really awesome to see this go so well for you, I totally feel your enthusiasm and joy that this project is bringing you.

    This is a most impressive little chonker. Very happy for you!

    I am heading out for the 4 story drop test. For this test I swapped over to neutral light engine that is potted with beef up springs so we can note the difference. THe tint will let us know its a different test engine. I am so nervous...I kinda already know it wont pass but I just have to try it!

    A big factor is what surface it is being dropped onto. Grass/dirt or gravel will obviously be more forgiving than asphalt, which will be slightly more forgiving than brick or concrete.

    My guess is batch 1 will sell out in under an hour, 2 tops.

    Incredibly impressive, will you be offering potted dropins? Do you pot dropins from your store?

    INDESTRUCTIBLE is the only word I can use to describe this light. It's so far past any reasonable expectation for a flashlight that it needs a new category!

    Yes but you don't need it unless you plan to abuse it like me.
    I do not pot anything unless requested. No issues ever. My first 12 tests were with an unpotted light engine. Its only this 4 story drop that I chickened out.

    The nutty party is the front bezel is perfectly round still on the inside. All threads are as smooth as original. Come to think about it may be the softer 6061 might have absorb some of the impacts that the harder 7075 might not...IDK

    I was wondering about this as well. Either way, having a light in 7075 is just too cool not to use it.

    Battery spring? I don't know if that's a good guess as I'm not even sure there's a way for it fail that allows the light to still function.

    Thanks for all of your hard work! You're always very thorough with these types of sales, the only difference is that it's your own light this time and there's a lot of options. Like you said, we'll get there.... meaning, you'll do all of the hard work, while all we have to do is sit back and spend the money. Hahaha!

    I felt like I missed so much today! Today's drop test and the submersion test were my two, favorite torture test video's but heck, they were all fun! It's neat to see the abuse that this light can take. That cell got completely hammered!

    I am kinda curious now if an unpotted light engine will survive the 4 story drop...

    Maybe o-rings at the front and the back of the tube to prevent the battery denting from the fall ?

    I don't deserve the credits, It's used in few other flaslight makers ( switch side from the Oveready BOSS, front side of moddoolar design, etc...)

    It looks like it can be useful.

    Are you still planning a serial number checkout first, followed by the actual order with all options decided afterward, allowing for a more relaxed decision making process? If so, how far in advance of the lights actual release would you do this?
