    I hope you get it soon! I had a hard time choosing between the HI and the PLUS. What headlamp did you order?

    I had the regular aluminium with black paint with the Nichia emitter. Gave it as a gift to my father. He had tried another tailclicker but found the pressure neded to operate it too hard. This was much easier for his old hands

    Well I went and ordered the second Emisar D4 after losing the first one about 2 weeks after getting it?

    Naturally I placed the order and it was shipped over the Weekend and then Today guess what turned up!

    OF COURSE I HAD TORN THE COUCH APART A FEW TIMES BEFORE DECLARING IT LOST!
    And this morning it just sort of squirted out from between the cushions.

    At least the new one is a different Emitter and color so........

    @EZDog: as pointed out by the late, great, sort-of-immortal George Carlin: you'll always find what you are looking for in the last place that you look! :)

    This year's incoming (well, not incoming, but already arrived) lights, are a pair of Astrolux S41s (Quad Nichia 219B emitters, 7-mode), and an Armytek Elf C2 Micro-USB-Rechargeable headlamp, in cool white.

    Surprisingly, I'm pleased with the cool white tint of the Elf. Generally, I shy away from cool white lights, but this one surprised me.

    I also purchased the extender tubes for the S41s, so I could load them with 18650 batteries (as opposed to 18350).

    As expected, the tint on the S41 is absolutely beautiful, loaded with Nichia 219B emitters. Beautiful, floody output on those ones.

    Got the Elf (also 18650-driven) on special through one of Andrew and Amanda's Daily Deals. Couldn't pass it up! Sorry I didn't buy two, while I was at it.

    I'm still itching to pick up a D4 (in Nichia 219C), and their D1S. I keep missing the window on the the D4, though. Seems, they're continuing to fly out the door, once they have stock. Can't say I'm too surprised.

    I was so shocked to find the 219 in stock that I ordered one even though I have found my original D4!
    This light has quickly become another that I am happy to have a backup for!

    Now of course the USPS has managed to somehow overshoot me by a few hundred miles and the new light is somewhere beyond me literally and they have not even updated to show that they are trying to get it here?
    Tracking? Yeah Right.

    I have a ThorFire VG15S on the way. It's a cheap generic but advertises 1070 lumens with 5 modes for $20. I thought it worth the gamble. Anything close to advertised perdormance and it will be good value.

    USPS is pathetic. If they had to use their own tracking software to find their heads they'd fail. I had a package coming in late last week; USPS tracking 'showed' it had arrived at my local PO. At about 6:45 am on Friday! Checking status at about 9:30 am, tracking indicated it had arrived at 6:45 am; but then also showed it 'registered' as in at 9 am. And that ETA at my house (about 2 miles from PO) would now be on the following Monday...! Surprise -- it was in my mail box Friday night.

    On another sterling occasion, MANY residents in the various neighborhoods were lined up at PO irate because of missing packages. Clerk comes, out proceeds to shout about a route number XYZ (a code number!) with all packages having been sent back out -- even though we'd all been left with notes from carrier to go to the PO...

    Idiots. All of them.

    If there was the possibility of a referendum on anything but simple letters and magazines, I'd vote for the USPS to get out of all forms of the package business. I wonder if our Con Artist in Chief could be persuaded to tweet out such a proposal?....

    L'chaim!
