Holding the button while connecting power might be a good way to reset to factory defaults, for example. That’s a thing which isn’t implemented at all right now, and hold-at-boot is probably the easiest way to do it. But I don’t know what would be the best UI choice for hold-at-boot.

I love that idea, have a specific, easy action such as hold-at-boot to reset to factory options would be awesome. Also I think a simple but to reset from muggle mode should be sufficient, not too hard to hand to someone and say use it but don’t open it to look at the inside. My understanding of a muggle mode is simple use for a short period of time, perhaps in an emergency, when you don’t have time to explain the whole UI so the person shouldn’t be playing around with it anyway.

Perhaps that’s just my thought though

Once the light goes into production, 2018, you will get a PM with all the details. For now we wait. Smile

Please remove me from the list, I have no interest in low CRI lights with unspecified emitter parameters anymore. The XP-G3 also has a very ugly beam, as I’ve seen IRL, with green tint-shift and a blue-UV corona.

I am kinda feeling ferongr’s sentiments. Will the MCPCB be easily replaceable with a Noctigon 3XP board?

You won’t need to be removed from the list. Just don’t do what is required when payment is required and it will be understood that you don’t want the light. No big deal.

Perhaps muggle mode could use the ramping but limited to the single 7135 channel? Could be a training mode for using the UI, and useful for experienced users in a long term blackout situation should you need maximum runtime.

About reset using connecting power while holding the switch, this might be difficult for people with arthritis. Just a thought.

You remembered my lost EDC from 4 years ago Wow! Good memory! Actually, I’ve not lost it again since. I’ve just changed from keeping it in my front pocket to my rear and the longer tube causes it to be pushed up and out of my pocket. (I’ve had to move it to my rear pocket since phones are getting so darn big – too big to accomodate a flashlight in the same pocket.)

That’s a great idea, but single click to turn on should always (no memory) go directly to a “useful” general use mode so anyone could pick it up and use it.

Do you mean in mode sets?
I think in ramping mode you can’t turn off memory.

Well, I guess muggle mode is a seperate thing?

The mugliest of muggle modes, one level, 400 to 500 lumens.

I imagine if they made ramping part of muggle mode, no memory could be done. Hold to ramp, or single click to go straight to a 150-300 lumen mode.

Well, who could forget? That was a pretty traumatic thread for all of us here. A faithful little flashlight sent into the maw of an evil snowblower. Shocked

Or just me?

You wouldn’t have 5 seconds to say “Hold the button to adjust the brightness” as you hand the muggle your flashlight?

After losing one to the snow, and finding it months later (it wasn’t in the snow at all), all of my pocket lights either come with a properly fitted pocket clip (that I use) or I won’t buy it. My brother lost the exact same light and refound his also. He also uses the pocket clip now.

Thus begins the slippery slope of turning the muggle mode into a full fledged UI with a learning curve. Sure, we think it’s simple, but to most “it’s just a flashlight” and shouldn’t be so complicated. If it didn’t have memory it would act as a single mode muggle light, but with the bonus ramping UI for those who may be more interested in it.
