Mine finally arrived. I got 2 in Ti. One seems to flicker on max output, battery is fully charged Sad
I tried to capture on a video but its quite difficult, you can see a bit after 4 seconds.

Its a nice little light, but doesn’t seem brighter than my Olight S1 that is 500lm.

A few days in and i already broke the damb thing, was hoping to put a ramping ui on it to fix the bad levels, stuck my circlip pliers in an twisted, ripping a few parts of the board.

notice the retaining ring is recessed and clamps right onto the components, if ya gonna open just go very shallow.

perhaps i will give up on flashlight and collect something i cant screw up, any ideas

Repair will be rather challenging.

Got my Mi1C Cu in finally. I paid for faster shipping and tracking, and BG gave me neither.

Nice little light. I don’t mind the mode levels at all. Just as bright as the Olight S1. The S1 with a TIR is more flood. The Mi1C Cu has a small shallow OP reflector, and using the XPL-HI, it throws the beam much better, and has a wide spill. Best of both worlds IMO.

Removed the clip since I don’t use clips on any lights.

I like the shallow reflector as well, surprisingly for a reflector that is hardly there, it produces a clear hotspot. I have some E21A’s in 2000K R9050 underway from Clemence, one is going in this light, for a candlelight-warm tint.

Did you mange to get the driver out? If you have any more pics Id love to see them or can you take a pic with the driver out.
Trying to come up with a plan on how to mod this thing. I already modded the Klarus Mi7 ti with a nanjg 105c Using a slave board, might also apply here.

Thanks Spud.
Looks like R050 is a sense resistor, one way to mod. I noticed there is little plastic sleeves around the led out wires. There must be a few mm of room behind the driver? If there’s enough room behind the Klarus driver to fit a nanjg or similar driver then (slave master) will work and then we can program what ever modes we want and current. Big Smile

Looks like the switch is using two outside legs for mounting and the two inside for the connections. If it is then the stock switch could be used with the original mounting spot. No need to relocate just solder wires to the two inside legs and to the master board. Stripping the original board of coarse.

Im afraid not, a relief has been cut into the shelf for the switch, not a hairs width has been left in this little thing.

I guess the resistor mod maybe it then. Any pointers on how to get the driver out without damage.

other than to go extremely shallow with your chosen tool for removing the plastic driver retaining ring.

other than that, by the numbers. you will have to remove the figure 8 earth tho, wont make it through the hole.

I just got my Ti and it does also flicker on highest mode, did you resolve this?

I’m thinking your flickering problem might be the included battery. I’m running a test on mine at the moment, and the resistance is off the chart on these, in the 285 to 300 range. Try another 16340 unprotected cell and see if it still flickers.

You are correct, after I charged the included battery the light works fine. It was less than half charged when the light flickered. I also tried with a fully charged Olight 650mah and Eagtac 750mah but the light would just turn off after a few seconds. Seems like this light needs a good high drain capable battery to work good.

Mine will only charge up to 3.84v, and has a capacity of 350mAh. Removing the charging circuit reveals that it’s not a 16340 battery. It’s a 16300 with a usb cap on top. There goes Klarus’s “Rechargeable Mi1C” claim… lol

The light is still a really nice light, but even with the usb cap off, it still measures 300ohm resistance. Junk battery

The Olight S1 Mini’s micro-USB battery is the same thing – a 16300 battery with the recharging/protection circuit that brings the length to 34mm. In fact, they might be the exact same battery, just rewrapped.

But yours sounds defective. Mine charges to 4.20V just fine, and has a capacity somewhere north of 600 mAh (didn’t have the patience to do a full test cycle).

Mine must have been defective. Tried it on 3 different chargers, all read approx. 300ohm resistance. It’s in the trash can now.

But, I still love the Mini’s.

Still not received mine – which is a bit worrying, since it was supposed to have shipped over a month ago, and deliveries from China usually take 2 weeks to get here.

Cu came in the mail 1-24 Ti came 1-25. both ordered on 1-1.
Nice little lights. They are smaller than I was expecting, about the same size as well used ITP A1 EOS. The UI is good to.
The Cu version is a lot heavier than the Ti version. Decent beam pattern to.
Be warned, the battery goes in + down, I think it’s the first light I every owned that the battery goes in upside down.
Thanks for the deal Freeme. Thumbs Up
