The FW3A a TLF BLF special elegant triple powerful flashlight

Honored and proud to be allowed to present the FW3A

Current status (2018-06-22): Second prototypes tested, emitter poll results collected, sending in feedback for host changes and emitter type(s). Only a few product details left to finish before production.

To sign up: Post in this thread.

A word of warning for BLF specials:
The BLF part is done by BLFers who do it in their spare time, despite they may seem professionals and the work they do is at professional level, BLF is not our full time job. So give us a break and relax if thing are not going as fast as you want.
Nothing is sure so expect waiting:
- Waiting for news and updates.
- Waiting for the project to come to fruition.
- Waiting till the result can finally be ordered.
- And then waiting for arrival at your home, shipping from China can take a long time.
So relax, enjoy the many other facets of BLF while you wait and remember:
It is done when it is done Smile

Computer renders of the light:

A collaboration between TLF (Germany) and BLF (global)
Fritz15 made a small triple flashlight on his lathe.
TLF reacted very positive and at first a small hand made batch would be pursued.
Yet, this elegant design just screams for a wider audience.

For a lot of us mere mortals, seeing the cool things machinists make on their lathe is just a dream.
Hence the finish of the FW3A will be clear anodizing, no sanding/beadblasting before anodization.
The idea is to give all the chance to have a light looking like it came of a lathe with the protection of anodizing.
(surface finish details are still being worked out though)

Another very neat feature is the electronic tail switch and we plan on having it run Anduril!
Very cool!

The FW3A

Small elegant EDC triple flashlight designed by Fritz15

  • Runs on a single 18650 battery.
  • 92.5 × 25.5 mm: Unusually small for an 18650 light — about the size of a SK-68 (1xAA).
  • Tail e-switch.
  • Bare-looking lathe-like finish, hopefully.
  • Wide range from ~0.3 lm to ~3000 lm.
  • Regulated output up to ~1000 or ~1100 lm.
  • Fancy yet easy UI.
  • Nice clip firmly attached.
  • Good ergonomics.

It’s meant to be a good all-around EDC light, something to be used heavily.

Second prototype:



First prototype:

Size reference:

Looks

Clear anodisation (no pigments) and NO sanding or sandblasting of the parts after machining. (the first prototype’s finish didn’t turn out as intended, but hopefully the second prototype will be better)

This makes the FW3A look like it came of a lathe of a skilled machinist with the added protection anodisation offers to keep it beautiful for a long time.

No marking/logo for a clean look

Stainless steel clip

Pricing

Target $30 including shipping, manufacturer can decide own pricing afterwards.
Maybe $36 if XP-L HI emitters are used.
Not fixed yet!

Emitters

3 pieces 3535 footprint
TBD: Cree XPG2/XPG3 NW, Nichia 219c NW, XP-L HI NW, or Samsung LH351D NW
LEDs mounted on DTP triple star

Internals

Integrated LED shelf for good thermal dissipation.

Driver retainer ring.

Threads square or trapezoidal (not triangular) for connection head and body

Electronic switch in tail with stainless steel button

Double tube to connect the electronic switch to the driver

Optics

Triple TIR optics http://www.carclo-optics.com/optic-10511
Glass AR coated lens 23.0 mm x 1.5 mm (original spec was 2.25mm thick)

Protective

O-rings at lens, bezel, both ends of body tube, clip (to keep it from spinning), and inner tube (to isolate it from the outer tube). Button uses rubber boot internally to block water ingress, with metal cap on the outside. Set of spare O-rings in box.

Smooth thermal regulation to avoid overheating. However, turbo is a burst mode only, and the user should use it only for short periods instead of relying on thermal regulation to prevent heat damage. Full turbo is powerful enough to start fires in just a few seconds, especially when aimed at dark-colored materials.

Quality Control

Lights made as specified and agreed upon.
Samples as specified and agreed upon for the team before the go is given for actual production.
All lights tested before shipping to spot and fix problems and avoid DOA. (turn on, ramp up and down, if not working properly factory fixes problems so all receive a good working light.)

TLF BLF cooperation

This light is a joint project between TLF and BLF.

FAQ

When will it be available?

  • No idea, sorry. Was expecting it to be out during spring of 2018, but things seem to be delayed.

How can I get one? What is the ordering process and payment method?

  • First, post in this thread to say how many you want. You’ll be added to the interest list. Then when it’s available to buy, a private message will be sent to you on BLF with further instructions. If you’re not on BLF very often, it helps if you have email notifications turned on for private messages.
  • Ordering and payment: Not yet determined.

What emitters does it use?

  • Not yet determined. Probably XP-G3, Nichia 219c, or XP-L HI (+$10).

Will there be a 18350 version / 18350 tube?

  • No. The entire back half of the light would need to be redesigned/replaced.

Will there be an empty host version?

  • Probably not. The only components which aren’t custom are the LEDs and optic.

How does the FW3A compare to the Emisar D4?

  • FW3A advantages: Slightly smaller, lighter, nicer clip, metal tail switch, higher regulated modes, cheaper (probably), much fancier firmware.
  • D4 advantages: Sturdier, more emitter/optic/host choices, rubber side switch, higher turbo modes, available from mid-2017, also comes in throwy D1/D1S flavors.

Old News

Poll (2018-06-08): Voting is open for emitter details: (results: the top choices were XP-L HI 3D and LH351D 4000K)

2018-06-08: Second prototypes arrived, many things are fixed, only a few things left to finish.

2018-06-03: Lumintop made a second prototype, hoping it’ll arrive soon for testing.

Poll (2018-04-19): What UI style do you want for muggle mode?
Results (2018-06-03): By popular choice, smooth ramp is now implemented for muggle mode.

  1. Smooth ramp (Condorcet winner: wins contests with all other choices)
  2. 3-mode Baton (loses to Smooth ramp by 66–36)
  3. 1-mode (loses to Smooth ramp by 71–31, loses to 3-mode Baton by 63–31)
  4. None (loses to Smooth ramp by 72–34, loses to 1-mode by 57–38)
  5. 3-mode clicky (loses to Smooth ramp by 80–22, loses to None by 51–47)

2018-04-17: Waiting on Lumintop to make second set of prototypes based on feedback from first batch.

2018-02-22: “FW3A Team” account created, thread ownership changed, so now updates can be posted again.

2018-12-xx: The first round of LT prototypes arrived. Details are posted in the thread around that time, and also a little bit in the OP.

2017-11-ish: The Miller is taking some time away from BLF to deal with real-life matters. Tom E has also been too busy to be on BLF much. ToyKeeper is filling in for both… for Tom since 2017-11, and for The Miller since 2018-04.

2017-07-20: Exciting news!
http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1155360#comment-1155360
With the active support from Neal we finally found a new partner for our project and the progress is far enough to reveal the name: Lumintop

FW3A Interface

The FW3A uses the Andúril‎ firmware by ToyKeeper. It is similar to Tom E’s fantastic NarsilM, but with some extras.

Basic usage is very simple: Click for on/off, hold to change brightness. But there’s much more available for those who want it.

This is the UI diagram for it, showing most of the functions:

The interface uses mostly the same ramping as Narsil, and basic usage is identical. Click to turn the light on or off, hold the button to change brightness. However, this style applies to both the smooth ramp and the mode group, and the user can switch between them with three clicks while the light is on. No need to remember two interfaces or navigate a config mode.

Ramping also has some additional usability tweaks. If the user holds the button, ramping will always go up unless the button was released less than a second ago or it’s already at the top. To ramp down without ramping up first, do a “click, release, hold”. This eliminates the need to remember which way it was ramping in the past.

Both the smooth ramp and mode group are configurable. The user can set the lowest level, the highest level, and (mode group only) the number of steps. Full turbo is still available via double-click even if the ceiling is set somewhere more sensible.

While on, a double click toggles between turbo and the memorized level. So, if you hear a noise and want full power for a moment, double click. When you’re done, double click again to return to the original brightness.

Two groups worth of blinkies are included. To reach them, do “click click click” from off or a “click click hold”. These include:

  • Group 1: (always starts at battcheck)
    • BattCheck: Show remaining charge in volts and tenths.
    • Sunset: Start at “low”, then slowly ramp down to moon for an hour, then turn off.
    • Beacon: Blink once every N seconds at the last-ramped level. N is configurable.
    • TempCheck: Show current temperature and optionally configure settings for thermal regulation.
  • Group 2: (remembers the last-used mode)
    • Bike flasher: Steady output with a “stutter” once per second. Adjustable brightness.
    • Party strobe: Motion-freezing strobe. Adjustable speed.
    • Tactical strobe: Bright, disorienting strobe. Adjustable speed.
    • Lightning storm: Exactly what it says on the tin. No adjustments available.
    • Candle: Simulates a flickering candle or fireplace. Adjustable brightness. Also works as a self-shutoff timer in 30-minute increments.

A few other modes are available by clicking even more times from off:

  • 4 clicks: Soft lockout. Light won’t turn on until it’s unlocked. This mode doubles as a momentary moon mode, so when the button is held down it’ll light up at the current ramp floor. This is handy for checking something quickly without having to unlock the light.
  • 5 clicks: Momentary / signalling mode. Using the last-ramped brightness, the light will be on when the button is held, or off otherwise. Good for Morse code and such. To exit this mode, physically disconnect power (unscrew the light).
  • 6 clicks: Muggle mode. An extremely simple interface with a limited brightness range — ~10 lm to ~300 lm, with smooth ramping and no blinkies. Persists after a battery change. To exit this mode, quickly click exactly 6 times.

Some features which aren’t visible on the diagram:

  • Low voltage protection will reduce the brightness when the battery is low. If the brightness is already down all the way, it will shut the light off entirely.
  • Thermal regulation keeps the light from overheating. It’s not normally visible by eye though; it ramps smoothly across 512 internal steps to adjust output while it searches for the highest level it can maintain without overheating.
  • By default, the ceiling is set to the highest fully-regulated output level — 3 Amps. This is about 1000 lumens. Full turbo is about 3000 lumens, but cannot be sustained for long due to the heat it creates.

There are also some other interfaces available for this hardware, but it requires the user to flash different firmware. You can make it work like a BLF Q8, or like an Olight, or like a Zebralight, for example. However, these are not tested and not officially supported.

    Aha, so this is what you were talking about. Thumbs Up

    Very nice !

    …uhm.. no DD driver i hope? Hopefully it will be a CC driver, but with enough (6 to 12) Amperes, like the LD2 (or LD3?) without PWM.

    Another thing, about the anodizing, clear anodizing can make it look very cheap, maybe better to have no anodizing OR sandblasted finish.

    But i love the design concept. Love
    Will possibly be as tiny as the DQG ?

    ..waiting for parts..

    Still looking for 5” parabolic reflector (for recoil light)

    Triple channel driver
    So a FET for highest modes but more birhgtness levels on 7135 chips then FET+1 drivers

    94.8 × 25.5 is the FW3A, pretty small Wink

    No, the DQG sacrifices too much in order to achieve its small size for my liking. It has no glass lens to protect the optics, especially for an EDC light this is important. Additionally, there is no tailcap spring, which is quite bad for the battery and the LED sits directly on the driver-PCB which grants horrible heat-sinking.

    Blf has changed a lot since I've been here. Lots of snow flakes and easily offended over nothing. When the forum use to be great and people joked around and could take a joke. It's a forum it's not that serious. Let's make BLF great again!

    A 18650 with a belt clip, Perfect Smile

    One for now with the option to increase order at a later date.

    Looks like another great light with a Coooooooool looking factor.

    Oh wauw, I’ve had small DQG lights in my cart many times but felt great hesitation to actually buy one and reading this makes me feel good about it Wink

    I’ll have to toss my hat in the ring on this one as well.

    I don’t know when it might occur, if I’m not present much at the time please have KawiBoy or J-Dub send me an email and wake me up…

    So, since the design is complete does this roll right into prototyping?

    I may be missing something, but why not just put the driver in the tail? Most of these FET and 7135 drivers work by applying PWM (and in the case of the 7135, variable resistance) between LED- and BAT-. The connection from BAT+ to LED+ is direct; it doesn’t even touch the driver board in the case of the new version 17DDm.

    Regardless, this looks awesome. Please put me on the interest list.

    The driver will need a BAT+ too for it to work.
    But that inner tube can do that. but a thin strip of copper or even nickel plated iron would suffice.
