Yup, I could see that. Some magnets are stronger than others, too. Out of curiosity, where did you get your magnets? I’m still thinking about getting some.

You don't really need a parachute to skydive. But you DO need one if you want to skydive twice!

No. It’ll burn the driver.

The C01 certainly not, the C01S no one has tried it. Three options:
*works fine
*works fine but something is damaged so that alkalines and NiMh’s stop working
*the driver fries

and here in comparison with small Astrolux with Nichia emitter:

 

 

Nice tint, small size. It would be nice if it has a memory.

Update: Sofirn finished the BLF edition but the mode order was not changed to low-high Facepalm
They have to remove the drivers to fix that but are afraid that the drivers may end up somewhat loose.
I guess that it is fixable with some glue if that happens so that is how it will be then Flat Stare

I guess I’ll skip it. High – low is a no go to me.

Some confusing posts above. The idea is that Sofirn will reflash the drivers so that the UI starts with low, as was planned for the BLF edition. The consequence may be that the drivers, having been removed and assembled again, may end up a bit loose. I thought that was a better option than leave the UI the wrong way around.

Is it clear now?

Low-High is more important for me. Loose driver as long as it doesn’t affect reliability is ok. If they have to glue the driver, it’s not a problem for me. I plan on getting 3-4 of these.

I’m not sure that they will glue the driver, it was my assumption that if we had to choose, we rather add some glue to the driver ourselves than have the UI wrong.

Yes.
Low-high with a glue driver C01S would be great.

And I wonder: Is there any possibility that I can exchange the sequence of modes of my C01S, just by modifying, adding or removing some of the solders of the current driver, but without having to disassemble or reinstall driver components?

For me the sequence of modes is not essential, but I prefer low-high to high-low.

In for several units in raw aluminum

The mode sequence is changed by Sofirn by changing the software as I understand it.

@Lux-Perpetua, ask if the drivers can be glued by Sofirn themselves.

Glue is perfectly adequate here.

I‘m not involved into this BlueSwordM. Maybe Jos can forward this request to Sofirn.

Oh ok then.

Or maybe I could just message Sofirn myself. Smile

No, that's the "normal" C01S that is also linked in the OP. Sorry to disappoint you.

No ETA was communicated yet. Barry did tell me that they will glue the drivers if after re-assembly they are loose.
