    Default Malkoff wish list.

    We all have things we would love for gene to come out with or change. I’m sure he gets on here from time to time and a thread like this just might persuade some changes we want.

    I myself would love a variable hi/lo ring. Something that can be adjusted by the user to get them highs and lows right where I want and need them. Anyone else have a change they would like to see?

    Couldn't you just add/ replace the resistors to do this?


    What would I like to see from Malkoff.... hmmm.... I would love an HCRI Hound Dog Super, that would be my ultimate light, I think.

    Yes if you had the skills you could but having it come from the factory like that would be great for those without that kind of knowledge.

    Dear Santa,
    I wish for a single output 219b MDC that will run on a single li-Ion cell.
    Thank you, I have been a good boy this year and only pulled my sister's plaits twice.
    Yours hopefully,
    Peter

    All I'd like is for a continued product focus on the single output modes; Malkoff modules continue to reign for all KISS usage IMO.

    Oh, and 5000K color temps, lol.

    An MDC that takes lithium ion 16340 or 18350, 3 or 4 well spaced modes (something like 3/30/300 or 1/7/50/300), no mode memory, no visible pwm, available with N tint XP-G2 and/or Nichia 219.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.

    Single mode MDC with a high/low ring.

    Oh and a ultimate emergency/survival Dropin! One that has a range from 1.5-12 volts so you can run it in any host off any batteries. “Except 4 rechargeable”

    I'm slowly "warming" up to the 5K temps. Thanks folks, I'll be here all week...

    Would really, really, really like to see a AAA Malkoff keychain light. Simple, one mode, medium output for longer runtime, powered by a single alkaline, lithium, or Eneloop cell.

    I know there's a lot of competition in that space, but it still would be cool nonetheless. And nearly bullet-proof.

    Yep a. AAA light is obviously on my list but think there’s another thread on it so didn’t list it. But YES that would be awesome!!

    For me it would be a single mode single cell Li-ion light that would also be useable with AA’s. Something like a 1-4v in Neutral tint that is a regular production item so I’m not afraid to travel with it.

    21700 or 26650 tubes for the big lights would be great!

    I've said this many times before, but I still want a low voltage, 1x18650 version of the Wildcat. Bonus points for 5000K. A congressional gold medal for 5000K and 90+ CRI.

    It doesn't seem too pie in the sky, right? After all, we have a Hound Dog 18650.

    Ya. That’s a good point. The HD runs fine on a 18650. The wildcat I think draws a little more but should work 🤔

    MDC AA and M361N that use constant current instead of pulse width management to achieve the Low and Medium output levels. These products are otherwise perfect.

    To be fair, Malkoff's PWM is far less objectionable than most other makers. Still, this is a wish list...

    Another AAA vote. One mode only and in 4000K or 5000K.

    Default Re: Malkoff wish list.

    AAA but I would prefer a hi/lo ring
    For that matter I would prefer all the MDC's have only two modes.

    M361 that is designed to work perfectly with hi/lo ring for six reliable levels...(some apparently work fine...others do not. Mine does not).
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    On that topic, I'd be delighted if Gene standardized everything at 5000K.

    How about a 3000k hound dog. XML or 18650 would be fine with me. I'd probably prefer the 18650 format.

    Said it before but hi/lo ring "pack" with different resistors. Or single rings with different resistors. Just thinking of ways to expand options with maybe less work...

    It would be nice to choose from a menu of high/low rings. I agree.

    Xpl hi 5700k in hound dog and xpl 5700k in all the m61 variants.

    16kHz pwm frequency for anything with electronic low modes.

    4.2v support for 3v heads.

    Z41 style tail caps that have anodized threads for lock out, oveready use to sell them but not anymore unfortunately and they look awesome on md bodies.

    Malkoff style e series 1/2 cell body that can accept the tri e series tail cap.

    Bring back the lanyards.

    For ME adjustable does not equal ultimate reliability. I know they aren't mutually exclusive but I want to make adjustments to gear BEFORE I field the equipment. Malkoff stuff is for when you MUST have exactly what you want and you MUST know what you will get. To ME, adding variability is a non-starter. I JUST started being ok with Edc a hi lo. lol

    If there were an adjustable pot on the ring you WOULD be able to make any adjustments you need/want before you set out.
