    That's a nice looking light!

    What LED is used in it?

    Excellent Ricky!
    I love the C cell configuration, if that is indeed what we are seeing.
    One question:
    Are we going to see any option for neutral white?

    What will the runtime graphs look like when using alk cells, which I'm assuming this light is intended for?

    Hi Whineyweim,

    XR-E, pure white.

    Hi litetube,

    Yes, 2xC-size dry cell or NiMH (Best performance).
    Or, 1xC for emergency with lower output.

    Will have details info. post here for new UI and brightness control very soon.

    Hi Haz,

    While the final price still not yet release, I can confirmed as less than USD80.

    Hi gunga,

    Thanks.

    Hi clg0159,

    Basically, we use pure white.

    Hi Phaserburn,

    I only have NiMH runtime at the moment.
    Will update in the 1st post.

    Best regards,

    Ricky - Lumapower CS

    I might have to get one of these to test out. Looks good. Ricky, will this run on 1C alkaline?

    I'm sure Lumapower will not glue anything so some inventive person may swap the led for warm white...

    Hi gunga,

    I just correct the mention of 1xC size should be Alkaline (but not Li-ion) in the above statement.

    Considering 1.2V (NiMH) or 1.5V Alkaline, the output is close to 100 Lumens (high out) for emergency purpose.

    So, the runtime will be kept as long as 2xC.

    The LED engine with similar design as D-mini series which is upgradeable.

    Before you mod the light, would you consider it is already good for different fields of usage?

    Maybe we should prepare some DIY kits for flasholic like you.

    You mentioned that the first model would be the 2C. What are the other models? Will there be a D cell model? Will regulation be maintained, albeit shorter induration vs nimh, on alks?

    Ah good, thanks fo rthe info Ricky.

    Yes, I'm afraid I am a victim of Warm tints, so I end up wanting all my lights to be warm tints.

    I will skip lights that are not available in warm or not mod-able in warm.

    Sure, a DIY kit with no emitter would be great! But I don't expect this to be a reality. Too hard to stock/warranty etc.

    Hi Phaserburn,

    Actually, our R&D had developed different models in the past years.
    Some of them will never be put into production for many reasons.

    Some needs further improvement for mass production but cannot reveal plans due to too many copiers.

    Basically, our new Tool-Lights series will be launch in the coming months.

    They carried same design factors (features)
    1. Solid construction.
    2. Full regulated circuit
    3. High Output/Runtime ratio
    and more...
    The most important : BEST Price/Performance ratio.

    Refer to our test report, NiMH's runtime is normally longer.
    Alkaline batteries with higher internal resistance which means the output will drop faster after half-life (High out)

    Hi gunga,

    Yes, it is too hard to handle specific stocking...

    Best regards,

    Ricky - Lumapower CS

    I already have a big box full of C NiCD and NiMH cells just waiting for this light.

    Looks very nice. I like full regulation. I hope to see a driver upgrade that can take 1x 26500 or 26650 cell in the future.
    What... You have it in Neutral White? Shut up and take my money!
    Lots of lumens don't make up for lousy UIs, drivers and cell options.

    Hi PhantomPhoton,

    Basically, the new 2C flashlight is designed for primary cell and not rechargeable Li-ion.

    The circuit efficient with best optimized with NiMH.

    Hi Kilovolt,

    Thanks and details will be announce in next week including price info.

    Hi clg0159,

    We will arrange a limited offer of Natural White at the same time.

    Good idea Ricky, it would make sense and be a lot more useful for most people to use common C cells. Li-on C is for CPF enthusiasts only!

    Natural white eh? I think it's time to ditch my modded maglite for this one...

    I think that if it is aimed at being a tool light they should maybe try to keep the price lower so more average folk will buy it. Maybe a Q5 instead of R2 or something light that. Simple UI etc.

    Ricky, the updated pics appear to show a smooth reflector. Will you have OP reflectors as well?
    Also, will this light be able to tail stand?

    Hi gunga,

    Thanks.

    Hi eyeeatingfish,

    Thanks for suggestions and the new UI is simple for everyone.

    Hi cheetokhan,

    The reflector is our sample with simple polish job. Not yet coated.
    The real production will be OP textured.

    The "MENTOR" can tail stand and also anti-roll.

    Yes, but please remember this is a utility light, not a high Zoot thrower etc. It's something you could replace your average maglite with.

    Depends on price of course.

    Hi Norm, gunga

    Thanks,

    The "MENTOR" is well developed as it is.
    So, you can save money for "MOD" since mass production cost lower than that.

    We will also prepare optional parts to our tool-light series.
    You get more features and pay less.

    Best regards,

    Your 2 weeks is up.
    Time to spill the beans. Tell us about the user interface.

    • How many levels?
    • Does it have those obnoxious strobe/blinky/SOS/disco modes?
    • Is it programmable?
    • Does it always come on in the same mode, or does it come on in whatever mode was last used (mode memory?
    • How much does it cost?
    • When will it ship?

    Hi friends,

    Wow, 2 week going too fast.

    Refer to cheetokhan's question,

    1. 3 Levels as refer to 1st post.
    2. No "obnoxious" mode as usual, simply a tool-light, KISS 3-levels.
    3. All level fixed and flat-regulated.
    4. 2-way memory locking, 1st : same as our EDC series
    5. Less than USD80
    6. No later than 5-Sep-2009

    I will post more details on next Monday.

    Oddly enough I skip lights that are jumping on this warm colored (sickly yellow) light bandwagon. Pure white for me. Heck, I'd prefer purple/blue to the incandescent colored light. The reason I started buying LED lights was to get away from that Incandescent tint. Not sure why everyone wants to go BACK to that tint. It's beyond me...

    I agree, I much prefer the cool white beam in my lights. I also like to have lights that use readily available cells, especially for gifts. I give out a lot of flashlights every year over the Holiday's to non-flashaholics, who would not know where to begin to find some of the batteries we flashaholics use in our lights. This looks like a real contender for the X-mas light this year.

    I am a bit confused by the pictures though, it looks like two different sizes, but they both say 2 cell, 200lm, 160min run time. How can they be identical, yet be different sizes?
