    Default Neutron AAA in the works?

    Keep the lower modes especially firefly. Heck a dedicated AAA with Firefly and low would be tops. Perfect keychain light. Come on Thrunite, you are creative company, and everyone loves AAA keychain lights. Long runtime small compact Neutron would satisfy lots of folks.

    nada? Seriously? AAA market is in full force, it would be odd Thrunite would just ignore this market, but I suppose the $$$ is in the more obscure battery range.

    dont think it will worked out. the neutron AA's size is actually quite big. A neutron AAA might turn out bigger than a mini AA.

    Excellent! I really like the Klarus MiX5 (AAAA battery) form factor -- thin, smooth, designed to go on a keychain and not scratch up your cell phone if it's in the same pocket. Ideal UI for me (for a keychain light) is no strobe, no buttons, just twist the head. Fantasy: 1/4 turn from off to lowest, continuous ramp from low to high over the next 1/2 turn, and turbo with another 1/4 turn. Turbo can be brief, but must be blazing while it lasts. Turbo mode has exactly two purposes in a light with no heat sink: blind an enemy or impress a friend. Optimize for that. 10-20 seconds of awesome. Impressed friends for us = future customers for you. ;-)

    Beacon, I don't know if you have a Neutron yet but I just got mine today(1A). The Firefly mode seems about half as bright as the Quark moonlight mode. Not only that but the beam is much more even with a nice, big, hotspot and spill that is not to much dimmer than the hotspot. This is the greatest low low I could imagine other than having a neutral tint. This should not bother even fully night or cave adapted eyes. An AAA version would probably go very well with CPF crowd at least.

    Sounds like a winner. Hope they do add the Firefly mode in the AAA ligtht. I just got the Jetbeam RRT-0 which has a .003 lumen low. Superb and it is a nice light. I just love ultra low lows.

    Just wondering if there might be an estimate on when something like this might be released? Summer 2011? Thanks!

    Any timeline on this by chance? I want to make sure I set some funds aside for when this hits the market

    Hm.... Firefly, then a decent medium, then high? Will pay @#%#$%@ for potentiometer operation.

    Is it low enough for you? I ask that seriously since you are the most die hard low low cpfer I have come across. I am on the hunt for a super low neutral myself.

    I've heard that its low enough to look straight into-much lower =0 lumens.

    If it's truly low enough to look straight into in pitch black conditions then I may have to get one!

    Oh, definitely. Here's a look down the barrel of the Thrunite Neutron 1A on the lowest setting:



    You can actually see the structure of the XM-L LED with the naked eye -- very cool.

    If your eyes are really adapted to the darkness, looking straight into the emitter will hurt the eyes. But never mind that, it's really really low!

    Definitely low enough. One of the best low lows out there. I actually run my RRT-0 with the AA battery attachment and I take it a step further using a AA>AAA adapter so I am using the RRT-0 with a AAA making it the lowest low for a AAA light haha. Just wish there was a AAA size light that can do what the RRT-0 does.

    Still anxious and intrigued by this light as long as they keep the firefly mode.

    +1. Based on my experience with the Neutron 1A and 1C, this would be an automatic buy. Immediately.

    Same here. Could be a Northern California thing.

    Don't let this thread die. Don't turn this into another 4Sevens E01 Killer thread where expectation is high for so long and then expectations are dashed due to the wait...

    This. An XM-L with 10440 support; most folks consider ~80 lumens in a AAA light to be blazing bright - any manufacturer who can mass-produce the performance of a li-ion powered 1xAA light (180+ lumens) in a 1xAAA format will have an instant hit on their hands..

    I think XP-G is better. We'll release a AA twist. tighten for moon mode. another tighten for med. and the thrid tighten for high.

    That's fine, the XP-G can also go over 180 lumens on a li-ion cell. Simplicity is a good thing in an AAA light, so a basic twist interface with moon-~60-max lumens would be ideal.
