    Those prices for a complete light are even cheaper than if you were to mail me one to mod. Trying to make this light as cheaply as possible while still having XML2 or XPG2 on Copper for max performance. :-)

    I know this is just getting started, but when you have a chance, I'd like the following info if possible before I decide which one to get. I'm guessing others will to.

    -Pic of the two lights to see size difference.
    -Max lumen (led is fine) for both lights, both drivers, both XML2 and XPG2 (we know it will be less being the leds are dedomed).

    Thanks!
    Sometimes we don't get what we pray for. Sometimes we get much more.

    -Pic of the two lights to see size difference. Sure when I have the AA one in.
    -Max lumen (led is fine) for both lights, both drivers, both XML2 and XPG2 (we know it will be less being the leds are dedomed). I will give LED lumen rating again until I can acquire a Sphere to do lumen testing myself as Justin is taking a break :-)

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I saw that. You use to give approximate led lumen though based on how hard it was being driven. I'm just curious if there will be much of a difference.

    I stopped doing LED rating and current draw for a while as most just prefer OTF lumen.

    I'm in for a SK98! What is the ETA since I'm also waiting on that LD60 and they could ship together .

    Also did you solve the issue of the light getting too hot to hold almost instantly?

    SK98 has good mass so it's not gonna get hot instantly. Especially if you get XPG2 PDTc which is much less heat than XML2. Also DriverVn2 is an option if heat is your big concern.

    @ Kevin1322

    The size of my AA/14500 Minicree/Sipik68 compared to the Sipik98 I saw on Amazon was ~ 1 2/3" difference in Height. Mine is 3 5/8" SK98 AMAZON IS 5 1/3" Hopefully this will give you an idea.

    The NEWER SK68 and SK98 that Vinh gets may be a bit different?

    Cool! Yeah I'll take a XPG2 PDTc.

    DriverVN2 sounds cool just for the UI. If less heat does that mean DriverVN2 will have less output ?


    $35


    Extra Options:

    + $15 XPG2 PDTc
    + $35 DriverVN2
    + $5 for "V54" hand engraving
    + $10 for International Shipping

    Total: $100 if DriverVN2

    Time for my first VN purchase! I can't pass this one up.

    base $35

    Extra Options:
    + $15 XPG2 PDTc
    + $35 DriverVN2
    + $5 for "V54" hand engraving

    total: $90

    ps -- I live in Seattle. If you're still here and want to, we can avoid shipping and paypal. If not, paypal is no problem.

    pps -- the Must Read & Agree Before Purchase link in post #1 is the EC11 factory link.

    Yes you can stop by when it's ready. By the way you are adding too many options that is making it not budget anymore...Are you sure you need driverVN2?

    need? Probably not.. I'd likely just use mode 5 or 7, but I like the idea of being able to run at <100. I don't know how important it would really be to me, but even if I just end up wanting single mode, I'd get the awesome turbo timer! That's just too cool.

    LOL Okieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    DriverVN2 is very expensive at $35 but can't go wrong with its flexibility! :-)

    SK98 seems to be better built but otherwise factory performance is similar I think.
