This might be the first light I’ve seen where that style of clip is appropriate. It allows the head of the light to stick up out of a pocket, or above a strap as shown in the picture.

Fireflies, you might want to add a link to the PL47’s page at your store, to help people find it. Smile

That turned out nice! Lots of options and I’m glad they took the advice about the clip. Nice touch!

a 21700 is awesome. I have one without a home. Ready to purchase this; deciding on a color but I like the black look.

Have you seen the headband that is available to buy as an extra? It’s a lot of headband for just a few bucks; looks like it could support a 2×26650 headtorch! Make it happen Jack, I’ve got a big forehead, I can take it!

Toykeeper, I received the ROT66 XP-L HI with Anduril and I like how the ramp stop at the maximum regulated level. Is the PL-47 setup that way too and do you know about how many lumens at top of ramp? I like easy access to a max sustainable level for practical use. Thanks.

Lumens are in the first post. Unless you meant at the default ramp stop.

You guys strapping 5000 to your forehead are nuts.

I’m much more sensible at 2500 Wink

Ran out of flashlight money this month buying the D4S maybe later…

Looks very interesting! I like seeing more manufacturers adopting the awesome UI created by forum members! Thumbs Up

I just noticed, does the light also have leds under the button?

You can configure the ramp however you like.

The default config goes above the highest regulated level, because the driver is a FET+3 design. The +3 part only goes up to about 400 lumens, which makes for a pretty low ceiling. But for easy access, you can still loosen/tighten the tailcap to return to that level, or I think the default stepped ramp will have a level which hits that exactly. It should be step 5 of 7.

Why not all black, or all champagne? You show an all black light. I don’t get it

Is a 219c version in the works? It’d like a high cri version too, but worth more lumens than the 219b provides.

The low mode should be lower.

@leaftye, the SST-20 version is more efficient than the 219B version while still providing excellent color reproduction in the red color range.

It’s also a bit less efficient than a 219C, which is worth it for the better R9 rating of 80, compared to 50 for the 219C.

If I understand correctly, the supply of 219B emitters is running low, so it’s less a matter of whether there will be a 219C version and more a matter of how long the 219B supply will last.

TK, has anyone yet made a good tutorial video of Anduril UI? This will be my first light with this UI. I’m sure this has been discussed extensively, but I’m unsure exactly what the “N” value is in the configuration set up.

I recall someone made a video overview of Anduril, but it was pretty long and probably could have been a lot shorter. Would have to search through logs to find the URL.

The “N” is the number of clicks. Like, if you want to enter a value of 5, click 5 times. If you’re calibrating the temperature sensor and want to tell it the ambient environment is 22 degrees C, click 22 times. If moon is too low and you want to set the ramp floor to level 10 of 150, click 10 times. I hope that makes sense.

Thanks, Pavlo. I forgot who made the video, which made it hard to find. With the video URL though, I found the original post about it. ZozzV6 contributed the tutorial.

I just bought two PL47. This is the 6th Fireflies flashlight I bought. Fireflies are you planning to add more color options for the Aux light? People might buy more just to get the different color combination to put on their desk or display shelf. The Aux lights look really nice.

I’d love to pick up another one of these lights with a black body and orange aux LEDs Cash

I would really wish that FireFlies start to manufacture flashlights with threaded retaining rings for the lens and e-switch.

Solarforce was manufaturing their P60 hosts with a threaded retaining ring for the lens and it was years ago, sure it is more cost effective but this kind of design gives a better feeling.

Their L2-B1 stainless steel retaining ring was flush with the edge of the head and I remember to have asked them to make a retaining ring that could protect the edge of the front of the head and they made the L2-B6 retaining ring a few months later.

The PL47 gives the impression to be a bit expensive considering the press-fitted design.

I would also consider a request for adding Samsung LH351B/C/D for FireFlies flashlights.

While LH351B/C emitters are less efficient (and powerful) than LH351D, they might be good when better throw is needed – but in 90+ CRI, LH351D is offererd with the most options, including a 6000K CW, which I would strongly welcome in moderately floody flashlights. LH351D have possibly more output, while being not much worse than SST-20WxH regarding R9 values (~65 vs. 80+).

If I think about Luminus SST-20WxH (95CRI), I would pick a ‘FA1’ or ‘FA2’ tinted variant for the best neutral white, but I would also welcome a ‘GDx’ (x could be any of 1, 2, 3, 4) tinted one for a mildly warm white around (or a little bit below) 3500K.
