    Regarding the M61N LLLL Group Buy

    Yeah so I'll just restart my conversation/ GB musings here.

    I will have the post for the M61N LLLL Group Buy up probably tomorrow, thought I was going to get some time last night but it did not work out that way. #sorrynotsorry

    ANYWAYS

    My current thoughts are as I posted over on the Front Porch. I will have everyone sign up and indicate their preference of 5000K or 4000K. It is not likely or guaranteed to get both, so we will tentatively say that at the end of the initial sign up period (aka PHASE 1) whichever has a higher amount of interest will be the chosen K temp. If it's close to a 50/50 split, we will discuss doing 4500K as a compromise. The LED will likely be an XP-G2, likely 80/ 85 CRI. I will be asking Gene if he happens to have some in stock as I know some of his batches of 4000K XP-G2s were very nicely tinted. If it's another K temp we will likely have to supply the LEDs, in which case CRI choice can be a discussion.

    Signing up is commitment to the group buy as a WHOLE, so if we do not end up going your preferred K temp, it will hereby be considered a "dick move" to back out at that point as the group will be relying upon everyone's interest to be initiated. Please take this into account signing up. It remains possible that there is enough interest to get both K temps created, but only if there are 20+ of each.





    As I have said elsewhere, my original run M61N LLLL draws 33ma @ 9V, 37ma @ 6V, and 55ma @3.6V. Output is roughly 23 lumens. Output w/ High/ low ring on 'low' is roughly 1 lumen, effectively the same as any other M61 dropin on 'low' as current draw is the same for all high/ low rings.

    Please note this thread is not for sign ups, but discussing and organizing potential group buys are desired. It may be helpful if we post in the first line of our comment what group buy we are referring to.

    I’d love to see a Bodyguard V3 as the V2 that has either high low ring or click to once for high and twice for low. Same form factor as the V2 but with 1100 lumens on high and maybe 20-30 on low. 2 primaries or 18650 just like the V2 also.
    Available in cool or neutral.

    "dick move"

    Lol. Very good to put this out there. It would suck if the poll decides on 5000K and 8 people back out due to wanting 4000K. Would probably ruin it for us all. Soooo. You have been warned 😁

    So this is interesting. I just checked and my M91 and M61 draw the same with the head on low”76ma”
    So how does that work if the high draw is only 40-50 ma?

    I shouldn't have said current draw I think. I should have said resistor. That's interesting though, IDK I'm not an expert. I'll ask Gene next email.

    I'd be interested in a 5000k M91N with the same voltage range as the last group buy run. Sorry I missed them...

    5000k m91BN
    5000k m61N or NL
    5000k m31NL or NLL

    I like 5000 and Gene only regularly sells 3,4, and 6k, so it’s a little different.

    You may need a brighter flashlight . I though that dot said he was going to start a thread in GB's for this one.

    If not, I will make a list.
