    What specifically is V2? Is there a way to visually identify which version you have?

    There was discussion of an updated version with a stainless steel bezel, but just yesterday Battery Junction launched a page showing an image with the original external design. Is that V2? Is the stainless bezel V2? Is that BJ now has actually V3 with whatever internal changes V2 had and the external design of V1?

    Hard to answer your questions without knowing what specific version you're asking about. I can say for sure that V1 and I were not friends.

    I think itís the V 2 with stainless steel bezel??

    I know BJ launched one yesterday I have been whacking it since day 1
    But I think they post the wrong picture of the light?

    There is only one way to know which one BJ have

    Someone must ask them for more pictures and info about

    Donít bother man. I have a V3 straight from Illumn, and itís still got a ton of issues. The concept is great, the implementation not so much. V3 added an always-on locator beacon and swapped the mode order from LMHML to LMHLMH. Parasitic drain will kill the battery in a few weeks from what Iíve noticed. It is indeed very feature rich, and the LED is incredible, but the cons far outweigh the pros for now. Hereís a vid I did:

    I am thinking about this light because of one reason and one reason only! Because of the Nichia Led!!! Thatís it!!



    The clip is definitely on wrong side!! No bezel up carry for me..


    And why there is no key hole?? Itís a keychain light without key hole??!

    Folomov tell me this how itís supposed to carry this keychain light without key hole???!!!

    This project has been quite complicated due to concerns with the original designs of the EDC-C1.

    In terms of hardware, we're now at V3 - the0dore3524, you have a V2, we just got the V3s and are wrapping up QC and validation. There have been a few batches..

    V1 - initial release
    V1.5 - modified heatsinking due to LED overheat - most people have this model.
    V2 - never fully released as we were holding it back for further testing, this model has the bezel. we decided not to release the light due to flickering in some instances.
    V3 - the newest model we are testing now, it has a thinner bezel than the V2.

    Since you seem to be very up to date on the specs of the folomov products, could you answer what the actual runtime and output specs for the Pen L1 are in a different thread that I started? Folomov never replied to my inquiry and nobody else seems to have the actual specs to post. Folomov and all sellers list the output and runtime specs of the C1 and Pen L1 as being exactly the same, even though the Pen L1 has twice the battery capacity.

    No need to reply in this thread, if you can post in my other thread asking about the actual specs of the Pen L1.

    Thanks.

    If he starts selling it, it probably passed the test.

    Glad to see that they changed the mode sequence to LMHLMH. That's the same as the C2 that I've had for a couple months.

    If all you want is E21A I think the jetbeam lights Virence is selling are probably a better bet. Especially if you're buying half a dozen of them, something with no standby drain would be preferable I would think.
    I want one functioning C1, but I don't really think I need 6.
