    All P60vn Mules will benefit from LilV custom extra copper hardware.
    Quad Mules are much cheaper than LilV and with LEDs near the center there are less output lost. Heat should be much less too. :-)

    The SLN, as it stands, is austerely beautiful, and all business. There is no extraneous machining, not even knurling. Jony Ive would love it. The twisty tailcap is intended to be even more rugged than the clicky, so it seems that should be reflected in the design aesthetic. But, in the end, I agree with Samlittle that this is your light, Vinh. If you please yourself, I'm sure you'll please your customers.

    Assuming the tailcaps will be machined in small quantities, would it be possible to make a few (maybe only one? ) without machining any slots at all, for the purists (and the divers)?

    The side slots are primarily a functional detail for grip not trits. They are mandatory for operational not looks. Trits install is just there for those so inclined. The 3 rear trits slots is also a functional design for night identification both on the night stand and under water. Retriveving the light if drop under water, in the woods, sand, or grass will be easier with trits installed. The 3mm ones are Very bright and is not just jewelry. The slots are on their own platform and does not take away from strength. Not installing any trits would be the no fuss tailcap. This tailcap design is also cheaper than our orginal 6 point star design which has an awkward side drill lanyard hole and no pocket clip.

    Way more pocket friendly than you would think. Love these lights.

    I just snuck mine into some product shots....

    I must say I was also surprised at how pocket friendly the chonker is as well. Didn't really notice it when I EDC'd it a few days.

    I wear tight jeans so I sure as hell feel them. I use this light a lot at my second job at a building where I do some maintenance work. I like it on my rear pocket. Surely I am bias but it feels kinda bad ass to draw every time hahah. I enjoy the clicky for sure but I still feel I will enjoy the twisty even more. But who knows. We will see.

    Oh once in a while I have the urge to just drop the light on purpose hahahahah. Surely dont have this urge with any other light.

    I kinda want the body section to be filled with like 10 Oring grooves so I can leave the first three empty for heat dissipation and fill in the rest for grip....hmmm

    I've got to learn an instrument and start a band, just so I can name it "hint of purple." Maybe it will be a Prince cover band...

    I'm still curious whether there was any effect from the white MCPCB.

    Also, any word on the remaining lights from batch one?

    Thanks Vinh.

    Sorry I was away the last 2-3 days and I am so behind on emails.
    Had some important family matters that needed me my presence.

    Some of batch 1 and 2 is machined and done but they are all at the anodizing shop. They told me there is a technical issue they are having at the shop that will add a 3 weeks delay from today. I am so sorry for this....I will update with whatever details I get in as soon as I have it.


    White MCPCB and Blue MCPCb shows no noticeable difference with my sphere reading. I compared both at different output levels but still could not conclude anything specific. Therefore its more or less a color preference.

    Did you compare it with black host or silver host? Would love to see a comparison between black vs silver too.

    Black & silver too did not make any difference that I can differentiate. Variance between LED and circuitry are far greater than these differences. Unless we haev a reflector shape angled reflecting surface I dont think these small changes will make any noticable diff on a mule.

    LED and circuitry shouldn't have any effect in this comparison. You test the same exact pill in a black host and in a silver host. The only difference should be the host color. With the black host, I think you said you lost 25% output with the bezel on. With the silver host, I'm curious how much you lose.

    No I tested similar LED set up but it was a different light engine at different times. So yeah...variance in electronics parts is greater than anything we will see with silver or black host.

    In that case, can you test the following setups if you have time so we can see the real difference:
    1) Mule without bezel and glass
    2) Same pill in black host and glass
    3) Same pill in silver host and glass

    This would be a fair and direct comparison.

    The 6x 60.2 is my fav setup spec so far. Are you even offering this as a spec currently? What is a 60.2 anyways? First time hearing of it. More lumens than the quad. And less lumens loss compared to the lilv. What would be perfect would be a 7 emitter like the eo7vn and the mt07vn. Only if you can put that 7th emitter where you have the wires coming out.

    I think it was six 50.2 emitters.

    Are you even offering this as a spec currently? Yes its on my P60vn sale page on SkyLumen

    What is a 60.2 anyways? 6*XHP50.2

    First time hearing of it. More lumens than the quad. And less lumens loss compared to the lilv. Nah not less loss. It just make more lumen. Also draw extremely high current so a twisty tail cap is neded. All clicky will melt on turbo for long runs.


    What would be perfect would be a 7 emitter like the eo7vn and the mt07vn. Only if you can put that 7th emitter where you have the wires coming out. hah I suppose we can do that. I just need to drill to diagonal holes. But it is worth it? Hmmmm

    Yes having 7 emitters will be worth it!lol When have we ever here not wanted more lumens.haha since the 60.2 will only work for twisties, maybe a diver would like 7x? If they underwater, heat is no issue. Maybe the runtime would be issue hah
    especially 7x xplHi or w2,w1 would be awesome!
