    Slate Blue QK16L arrived Sat 27Feb21. Nichia 319A beam and tint are phenomenal, great transition from spot to spill!
    Are the lumen specs actually the same as the black model? I don't have the black model but the 40lm medium from the slate seems a lot brighter than some other lights I have that claim to be in that range, both in a ceiling bounce and backyard testing. Maybe its the excellent beam profile and more light going forward unlike optics lights, but I'd guess the med to be more like 60+ lumens.

    It's bright enough on Med that I would actually prefer that Med was dialed down a notch or two (20-30) and then add a Med/High ~100 lm level.

    **EDIT** Box and instruction sheet says Med is 100lm but the website says Med is 40lm. If is actually 100lm with proportionately shorter runtime then frankly I fell mislead. I do think there is way too big a step from Moon to med as it is. I passed on the Kickstarter because of the 100lm med.

    The box is the correct information. I will forward your input to have that looked into.

    Edit: Nope. See Post #156

    In that case this light desperately needs a real medium level between 20-40 lm. 100lm is way more than you need and frankly undesirable for walking around a public campground or looking under your desk or car seat for the thing you just dropped, but 1lm isn't enough. I think you could do it while adding only one more configuration to the menu.

    Nope. The Box and manual are wrong. the Factory sent V.1 data instead of V.2 data on this runs boxes and manuals of lights by mistake. It has been corrected moving forward.

    This run of Slate Blue QK16L's Med are ~40-50 lumens, not 100. I agree adding a ~15 lumen level between 1 lumen low and the 40 lumen Medium would work great. I think there were firmware restrictions preventing the adding of an additional mode level previously during the MKIII R&D phase a few years back. Medium is my most used setting on these. I really like the new LED's beam shape created by it's die shape, it's really smooth and pleasantly "CRI Creamy" (hey hands off I just thought of this sniglet lol). The QK2A is less bright with a closer mode spacing appearance. I've been running the single RCR123HD and single AA tubes with very good results.

    So the website is wrong too? Specs are approximately 1/40/400 for L/M/H?

    Yes Neal that is correct to the best of local testing. Prometheus is aware of the V.1 to V.2 error and has corrected it. This stems from Prototype to ver.2 testing. The production factory mixed up the printing of boxes and manuals. No excuses, just the pitfalls associated with production of products .
