True words. And a lot of folks there are not quite as welcoming as folks here to newbie questions. I had my hat handed to me there just yesterday as I was trying to get a better handle on the various user interfaces available. Use one wrong word and you're toastRevival wrote:So even though I lurked the Candlepower forums for a while, I recently browsed their forum in a little more depth and it's definitely overwhelming and intimidating.
I was between the V11R and the M11R. I liked the infinite adjust on the V versus the discreet of the M and thought I'd rather have the tail cap switch (also, just reading, the V seems to get a lot more love than the M, overall)Revival wrote:Nice light Ken. I looked at the V11R a few times. I really like the UI and the fact that you can get the tube to covert it to an AA light. Who knows, that might be my next light.
Until now I always purchased flashlights with mechanical clicky (reverse or forward) = no parasitic drain when the flashlight is OFF.kbuzbee wrote:I don't miss the tail cap switch at all. In fact, I'm preferring the interface without it, which surprised me. And though infinite adjust sounds cool, the spacing on these three settings is pretty close to ideal, for me. Infinite adjust would be a fun toy to play with but not really required for function.
Might not be cost effective for you living in France but FWIW illuminationsupply in San Jose, CA (online store) has a great sale on the RRT-01 (XM-L2) currently at 1/2 off...$44.50. Great deal on a very popular mag ring light! If I didn't already own several...I'd jump on it.I'm using a JETbeam RRT01 (XM-L2, OP reflector)...I'm going to buy a second one for an emitter swap with an XM-L high CRI.
Haha...glad you snagged a couple! They actually had the special edition Ti version of this same light a few days ago...the Jetbeam TCR for 1/2 off at $100, but has since sold out. I thought about it for awhile and ultimately passed, though now I'm kind of regretting it.Tally-ho wrote:Thanks for the heads up. Even with additionnal shipping fees to France, it's still a great deal. Ordered two.
Maybe I'm missing something but am a little confused by your comment? Recent posts refer to the RRT-01 (mag ring only UI), thus the stand-by drain...not the RRT-0, an older Jetbeam light w/a forward clicky as well as the mag control ring.Donut wrote:I can't imagine there would be any drain on the RRT-0 if you use the tail switch to turn it on and off. That being due to the whole "open circuit" thing.
