Thanks for the reasoning Fritz, I wrongly assumed it was a single-sided design change by Lumintop. So they did talk it over with you and you had your say about how it should be done. Thumbs Up

I’m still not over the top about the changed looks (as many others particularly like the changes) but it does help for me that it has your approval Smile

Perfect….. Thumbs Up . As long as Fritz is good with it , it looks like a winner. Wink .

Form follows function. Not everything has to be big, bad and ugly to look impressive!

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Yes indeed… well said!! Form should indeed follow function…… in most all cases.

One could say the light is too small to function properly. Form doesn’t always follow function.

I have no idea what point you are even trying to make…. Big Smile . Big Smile

Function is much more important than form in most things. Otherwise you get something that might look good and not be functionally worth a crap.

It is sweet when both can be achieved, as Fritz15 has done.

In a light that can dim itself smoothly and automatically in response to its temperature state, why not enable the user to have peak brightness when they want it? Does a light have to be able to run for hours at a time at turbo brightness to be functional? Would it be better to have a single emitter and a weaker driver so that this light could never achieve a high peak brightness, just so that its maximum would be dim enough to be sustainable? Or should it be built with the size of a soda can, with a built in fan, so that it can sustain the cooling demands of 3 emitters being driven by a FET? In short, I think it is good to be a small size; I do not mind the reduced thermal mass. The D4 is only $35 if you prefer.

Just wondering how this will be different from D4. I mean other than the looks, will there be any big difference?

The tail switch is the major differentiator, which is hard to do with this kind of light. The UI will also be a bit different, and the ouput will be lower.

See here.

Why is the FW3A better? Slightly smaller, lighter, nicer clip, metal tail switch, higher regulated modes, cheaper (probably), much fancier firmware.

Why is the D4 better? Sturdier, more emitter/optic/host choices, rubber side switch, higher turbo modes, available today, also comes in throwy D1/D1S flavors.


And here.

The main selling points, off the top of my head:
  • Tail e-switch.
  • Unusually small for an 18650 light — about the size of a SK-68 (1xAA).
  • Bare-looking lathe-like finish, hopefully.
  • Wide range from ~0.3 lm to ~3000 lm.
  • Fancy yet easy UI.
  • Regulated output up to ~1000 lm.
  • Nice clip firmly attached.
  • Good ergonomics.

It’s not just one thing… it’s meant to be a good all-around EDC light, something to be used heavily.

And I think if it sells well, they might make it from titanium, brass, or copper in the future. I’m looking forward to those.

Thanks for answering people’s questions. OP updated with the latest news and FAQs. Edited sections are below.


- TK




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

Team

  • Fritz15: Design
  • Tommy TLF: General TLF communication
  • DEL: Driver
  • Tom E: Firmware (originally), driver
  • ToyKeeper: Firmware / UI, BLF gardening
  • The Miller: General BLF communication
  • pepinfaxera: Interest list management
  • MRsDNF: Early prototyping
  • Neal: Facilitating tasks in China
  • Lumintop: Manufacturing

The FW3A

Small elegant EDC triple flashlight designed by Fritz15

  • Runs on a single 18650 battery.
  • 94.8 × 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 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.

FAQ

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.

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 (2018-04-19): 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.

Change Log

2018-06-03: Updated FAQ, closed muggle mode poll, second prototype confirmed to exist (via potato pics), filled in some missing “old news”.

Thanks Fritz and TK for the update. Looking great (just get the surface finish correct please), and pleased to hear that it is still a Fritz design.

Personally I am most impressed with DEL’s driver, which I think is a triple channel design (please correct if wrong) with linear regulation for all except the turbo FET mode, which is very neat, efficient, and should perhaps be emphasised more. Quite a jewel to fit into this, with E-switch as well. I don’t think anything else comparable exists.

As for the “potato” pictures, here’s Fred and Ginger’s take on it:

IMO: both look good, tapered & non-tapared.

For frequent clip users the tapered one will surely function better Steve
