I have one of the FET+7135 on a triple mod and it has a very nice ML.

Yep that’s the one. Tried the bridge (pin 2 to ground) and ended up with 1 mode (high). I must have bridged pins 3 and 4 via the trace. Cleaned up the solder so that pins 3 and 4 aren’t bridged and ended up with 1 mode again but this time it was low mode. I must done something to the microcontroller by running voltage with pins 3 and 4 bridged. Here’s a pic of how it ended up. Everything looks good except it only has low now.

Is there any hope of recovering this driver?

I think I see the problem. The pin closest to the ground ring is marked with a 2 and has a tiny pad (on the right of your picture) bridge that to ground.

I think lion42 hit the nail on the head.

Mtn descriptions.

Clicky Pin Functions. Soldering these numbered pins to ground will enable these features:

2 enables moonlight mode.

3 reverses mode order from the standard ascending (low to high) to descending (high to low).

 

It does say pins, I had to go back and check.

It probably should have said Numbered pads (hint Richard).wink

Try gounding the number 2 pad to ground which would be pin 5.

Also if you want option 3 you would solder pin 3 to pin 4, 4 is already connected to ground.

So I just received a notification of activity on this thread today (February 28th) and it looks like the last activity was on January 30th....  

I think I just need to start checking in here every day since it seems like notifications have been flaky lately.  cry

-----

Going forward I am going to label all of them by pin number; the old "Pin 5 = 2; Pin 3=3" nomenclature harkens back to the 105C/QLITE driver configuration "stars".

I am still working on it.  Had to get through the holiday rush...the 17mm is working well in my light, just need to make a few final tweaks then order boards.

Hi Richard!

If you ever find any neutral tint SST-40s for sale, please get them in stock ASAP! Great emitter… just a bit cooler than I like. Big Smile

I agree!  As far as I know, they still have't produced anything warmer than 6500K.  There still are no order codes for them.  

Sliced they are pretty much the ultimate C8 thrower LED IMO.

The 2x XPL HI I ordered arrived quickly and safely. One has already found a new home in a convoy S2+

Looks like your return address is in what used to be no-mans-land when I was growing up in SLC. That valley has filled in, a lot.

Maybe in the next few months, but unfortunately right now there is not time.

Sure. I know you are busy as alwAys. I also believe you are building a bunch of PFET driver for skylumen54 and other stuff. I understood.

I’ve made two purchases from MTN and both had lightning-fast shipping and were exactly what I ordered. Just finished my first custom build.

I’ll continue to buy as many parts from you I can for the more than likely future builds I will be doing.

I enjoy browsing everything on your website as well, so just wanted to say thanks.

Yes.  Wet sanded down to 2000, then polished.

That looks great, Richard. I wonder how the time/effort compares to when I shaved-dedomed-sliced mine. May I inquire about your polishing method?

I put this one in a Convoy L2 with one of your FET+1 drivers… amazing combination!

Slice smooth, wet sand with 1000 grit, then 2000 grit, then 3000+ grit polishing compound.  Really, the polishing probably isn't needed most of the time since the sliced dome is already pretty smooth, but it looks nice when it is super shiny.   Obviously when you are doing 2000+ grit cleanliness is super important---any grit can leave much deeper scratches than that. 

I don't like to use any chemicals when doing the dedomes; in the past it seemed to affect the phosphor somewhat giving some extra tint shift and unknown longterm longevity.  I use only heat (traditional soft domes like XM-L2) or a sharp blade.

Any idea why the new 5500 shockli batteries have a new skin on them?
The first three I bought had this nice red label on them:

Now they have a plan white and black one with giant text:

My 3 new batteries don’t match the first three Sad

The reason?  Heck if I know.  I feel like the battery manufacturers are always changing the labels on us without warning, rhyme, or reason.

Are there drivers out there that can take advantage of the tiny xqe on the new MTN triple?
