Yours is the second one I've heard of losing a light with a magnet. I think the other was gords with it stuck under a car. Good find.
When the big picture is to big, look for a point you can start at and build from there.

Hi guys first post here in TFF. I have been carrying Spark SF5 NW for about a week now. I really like the tint and and flexibility with both eneloop and 14500. I also just received the S2+ T6-4C from Simon and it is really great little tube light. Only 2-3 cm longer than the SF5 but as a plus it will provide longer runtime using 18650. I will swap the reflector with TIR in the future. Might win a crown as my EDC.

Welcome to the TFF family and congrats on your first post! :)

The Spark sounds nice. How low is the lowest mode? I have an S2 host on the way that I will be making a triple XP-G2 edc from with 1500 OTF lumens.  You're going to love yours.  4C is a great tint.  ;)

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I'm still waiting for that TIR from FT. The lowest mode on Spark around 1lm according to manufacturer's specs. I think it is a bit high in real life but I have no way to know the actual number. Triple XP-G2 in S2 sounds really awesome! 1500 OTF lm? It must be really hot!  :D

1 lumen is a lot brighter than people think it is.  I prefer less than a half a lumen for moon low.  Even a tenth of a lumen is plenty bright.

Heat with triple XP-G2?  Damned straight but that's what low and medium are for.  With a Qlite driver I will have a moon low to make it perfect for EDC and a stunner. :D

Where are you located?  What size TIR are you waiting on?  I have a lot of 20mm TIR in different viewing angles.

I'm from Malaysia, JohnnyMac. I agree 1 lumen is brighter than most people expected. I'm used to Olight S10's 0.5 moonlight mode and it was bright too. Thanks to you too Spasmod for running this great forum.

Malaysia?  Well I guess I won't be mailing you a TIR to save time.  You'd be better off waiting for yours to arrive from FT. :P :D

Primary EDC, left front pocket I have an old beat up 1 mode SK68 with a 14500, and in my right pocket an old beat up convoy S5 running specialized STAR firmware

Then in my Maxpedition fatboy whatever I happen to grab from my desk and toss in there (along with my hidden SIG P6 :D)
(all my vaping stuff and other miscellaneous flashlights/spare Efest batts for my vaping rigs)

My current pocket EDC is now a new modded Tank007 E09 with Nichia 219A reflowed onto the original star.
Let there be Light !
