    My Fenix LD12 gave me lots of problems again, even after Fenix sent me a new head for it. After much thoughts and consideration, I chose to save up my money and bought myself the Surefire E1B backup (I chose it over the EB1 cause of the length). After several months, it is still working great, and I love it alot.

    I will work on it.

    My current EDC light is a 47's Quark 123 Tactical Neutral XP-G. That's a mouthful!

    I'm adding my Fenix EO5 back into my rotation but I'll pocket carry it from now on. Here's a pick of it after carrying it on my keys and now after spray painting it green.

    I think it came out pretty good, just no markings on it now saying Fenix EO5.

    Probably but it's better then before and I like the green, besides I'm not great with spraypaint anyway.

    I would donate but I'm just not convinced of the 1000 lumen claim. I'll wait and see if it's the real deal. Also, the UI looks insane. Did you see the diagram? I don't even understand that... how could I ever hope to figure it out? :unsure:

    Yea no kidding, 1000 lumens in a light that small, with that kind of circuitry is pretty amazing if it all works as advertised. Biggest problem with kickstarter is the backers of the first batch of products kinda serve a guinea pigs, some come out amazing, others not so much. Hopefully this one is what it claims and is awesome, has a lot of potential, still not sold on the UI tho, seems like it could be a little overkill for the average person. I personally dont need that much, im stoked with my nitecore ez123 r2 that ive had for 3+ years

    There is an extensive discussion on CPF about this light.

    The general concensus is that it is running a Lux-RC 3-Up all-in-one module. This is the same module in use by Mac (of Mac's Customs), Moddoo (of TorchLab/Oveready) and of course, Lux-RC. The UI diagram you see is how exactly how that module can be programmed in each of those lights.

    Lux-RC has already commented saying that they never approved the posting of the UI diagram, and I would imagine Oveready will have something to say about trying to draw a tenuous link between this new light and the Moddoolar Shorty that appears in Oblivion.

    TL;DR: this Kickstarter stinks. They purchased someone else's module, wrapped some metal around it and are promoting it without asking for permission to use the images.
