Thread: Logan 17500 Question

    Default Logan 17500 Question

    Trying again to get one of these but not sure which version I want.
    I like the idea of using virtually any battery that I have. My question is if I get the Keychain bodly, can the end be removed to use as a low level tail srander or is the keychain end part of the light function?
    I want the option of the monetary switch so hence the keychain option.
    Thanks.

    So how does that work? Can you just unscrew the keychain attachment and tail stand it like that? Or do you need to attach the Momentary Switch.
    If i had one day left to live i would want to be at my workplace.Because every day is like a frickin eternity.

    What head setup are you using? I assume the QTC works better in these than the Eiger.

    Narrow optic, and yes, the QTC generally works better with the larger diameter bezels. That particular one may have a developed a loose "crumb" somewhere in the pill, as it has started to flicker, but I haven't gotten around to cleaning it out.

    Thanks.
    Last time I communicated with Robyn she said that they just got a new batch of 3200K High CRI leds in. I don't really need the "throw" so much any more so considering the medium optic realizing that I won't get quite as much output.

    I find the "narrow" optic fairly well balanced (not a tight beam) , while the "medium" optic I would consider to be more of a flood pattern.
