The Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype blends aesthetic design with a high degree of functionality in one handy-dandy instrument. This is a prototype, and will be renamed - but this web page will be updated to reflect those changes as soon as they occur.
As I understand, the term "EOS" is being used by another brand of flashlight (Princeton Tec I believe), hence the future name change.

It has a white Seoul Semiconductor P4 LED in its head, uses a single CR123A lithium camera cell to power that LED, and the intensity is continuously variable with a knurled knob on its tailcap.

It has six (6) genuine man-made white (colorless, water-clear) sapphires ringing its bezel (head) - this is the first time I’ve:
  1. Seen sapphires - natural or artificial.
  2. Seen any type of gemstones incorporated into a lighting product of any type.
Plus, it’s just plain cool (or “kool” or “kewl”) to look at, whether it’s on or off - even if you’re out getting trashed at the bar .

(HINT): It is never a good idea to become intoxicated (drunk) and then whip out an expen$ive jewel-laden flashlight; it may become lost or stolen if you do!!!


The Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype should come to you ready to use; the battery in mine was preinstalled.

Press the tailcap button firmly until it clicks and then release it to turn it on.
This is continuous or hands-free mode.
Press & release it the same way again to turn it off.

Momentary or signalling mode is available by pressing the tailcap button less firmly (before it clicks) and holding it that way for as long as you need light; just release the button to douse (extinguish) the light.

The intensity can be adjusted from very low to blindingly bright. To do this, turn the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype on in continuous mode, and turn the knurled tailcap clockwise (as if tightening it) to decrease the intensity, and turn it counterclockwise (as if loosening it) to increase the intensity. The intensity changes smoothly, with no noticeable "stepping".

I don’t normally show flashlight packages/storage cases, but this one is handsome enough to show off here.

To feed your shiny new (or corroded old ) Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype, unscrew and remove the tailcap, and set it aside.

Tip the used CR123A cell out of the barrel and into your hand, and dispose of or recycle it as you see fit.

Slide a new CR123A cell into the barrel, orienting it so the button-end (positive) (+) goes in first.

Screw that tailcap back on, and be done with it.

Unable to measure current usage due to how the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype was constructed and how it operates.

In this photograph, the light was at its lowest intensity.

The Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype is a loaner, and I’m sure its owner would appreciate receiving it back with no dings in the bezel or rat pellets or yucky old toliet water in the barrel. So I won't throw it against the wall, stomp on it, try to drown it in a wall-mounted porcelain urinator or a full bathtub, run over it, swing it against the concrete floor of a patio, use a large claw hammer in order to bash it open to check it for candiosity, fire it from the cannonada (I guess I've been watching the TV program “Viva Piñata” too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout, with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; and the cannonada is only used to shoot piñatas to piñata parties away from Piñata Island), send it to the Daystrom Institute for additional analysis, or inflict upon it punishments that non-loaner flashlights may have inflicted upon them. So this section of the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype’s web page will appear more bare than this section of the web page on a web page about a flashlight that is not a loaned sample.

The variable intensity settings of the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype are not "stepped"; they are instead very smooth, so you can "dial in" the exact amount of light you need for the particular task at hand.

The Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype is water-resistant; it passed "The Suction Test" I administered with no problems at all.

Most other lights with openings in the sides of their bezels (heads) that emit an obnoxious glow tend to piss me off, but the glow emitted by the EOS - for some reason - doesn't bother me nearly as much. If you absolutely, positively, must use the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype in a covert situation, this glow can easily be stifled with a bit of black electrical tape; though removing the "tape poop" (residue) from the sapphires after such use would be totally up to you...I simply do not know the proper way.

As most high-end products are, the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype is serialised: the serial number of this one is 154567090.

(Update 12-11-07): I used an oscilloscope to check for the presence or absence of PWM (pulse width modulation) on dimmer settings, and found no evidence whatsoever of it. So I do not really know what method is used for dimming the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype.

This web page look a lot like the one I made for the Gatlight?
Thought you’d say so.
The basic functionality of the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype and the Gatlight are virtually identical, so I used the Gatlight’s web page as a template for this one.

That greenish tint you see is a camera artifact; it does ***NOT*** exist in reality.

The Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype’s intensity is continuously variable; it does not change in visible “steps”.

Test units of the Titanium EOS White Sapphire Prototype and the Gatlight were sent by W.B. of Lumencraft as loaners on 11-17-07 and were received on the afternoon of 12-01-07.
Because they are loaners, I’ll add that dreadful “” icon when I return them.

As far as I'm able to determine, product was made in the United States of America.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I published it on this web page.

UPDATE: 12-24-07
Product has now been returned to Lumencraft; therefore, that dreadful "" icon has been added to its listings on this website.

UPDATE: 07-29-08
Product's name has been changed; it also appears to be out of the prototype stage.
The flashlight's new name is now "Titanium Polaris White Sapphire".

Insanely bright for its size
A great piece of art that works!
Smooth intensity adjustment

Tape residue might be difficult to remove from sapphires if tape was used

    Star Rating*

    * = Conditional.
    Product was not in my possession long enough to be fully tested;
    however I think it deserves this rating.
