Just curious. Will copper pills be finally made for aluminum hosts? Simon mentioned a run was to be produced long ago, but looks like the thing got frozen. Question

There are more than enough enthusiasts around here to guarantee sales of a nice batch of copper pills for alu hosts/flashlights, in my honest opinion.

Do you plan to sell 20 mm biscotti drivers?

Simon, your Attiny 13 drivers with biscotti firmware has a common know problem: when change modes rapidly (quickly), this driver spontaneously goes to programmable-mode.
Do you FIXed this problem in your new 6 Ampere biscotti drivers?

P.S. Even TK was spoken about this problem in your Attiny 13 drivers.

I don’t see anything funny in my name and surname!
I was named after my grandfather, who unfortunately died last year. He has been fighting cancer for the past 5 years. And could not win this battle …

I sincerely regret Friend, that your grandfather is not with you! And I didn’t mean to offend you! We are from different countries, although I thought you were Russian! So Google translator is to blame! Facepalm

BLF is a worldwide community Pizdosina, and you must understand our names can sound very different for people of different cultures. I just used the DeepL translator and “Pizdosina” translates as “coño/pussy” from Polish (Polaco) to spanish/english. Go figure!

No, about the fact that this is his name and surname – he is lying. Brazenly lying.
This is a purely Russian curse recorded in English letters (transliteration). A very indecent curse. Neither Polish nor Spanish.

I seem to even know who writes this. He has just worsening conditions in early spring and autumn … Wink

That’s not “Biscotti” firmware.
This is the driver with unsuccessful “Ramping” firmware.

BTW!
Friends! If anybody has new 6 Ampere driver with “Biscotti” firmware, please check this issue:

I have this driver and the firmware isn’t bad, just clunky abs needs improvement. Otherwise it’s a great driver.

True, it is just pure curse. And I personally straight hate curses, so please be kind and go your way. We go ours, you go yours

And with that, let’s close that chapter and get back on topic Smile

What MCU is on those CC drivers that’s allowing biscotti?

Simon, you said Biscotti is available for the ∅17mm SST-40 linear driver. I guess Biscotti can also be ordered for the ∅20mm SST-40 linear and the ∅22mm SST-40 linear drivers as they use the same microcontroller. Can you confirm? Thanks.

What about the planned copper pills for alu S2+ flashlights? They will sell, for sure.

Yes, Simon said he planned to order at least a batch of copper pills for aluminum hosts/flashlights, i.e. pills with standard threading. Theoretically, they were to be available before last Christmas. But @#$%.

I also wonder what good reason is behind the different threading of the 2nd generation copper flashlights and hosts. There was a run of copper pills crafted, and many were sold before lads and lasses noticed the different threading. The thing cost Simon money, and since the pills are only for the newer copper S2+ flashlights/hosts, the remaining stock is a hard sell. Nothing is random, you know.

I wonder if the remaining “newer threading” pills could be reworked/converted to standard threading easily. The newer threading is square or sort of, while the standard threading is either unified, american national or isometric (I think, don't really know):

Are the 5000mA “SST40” drivers regulated? I tried looking up the components but no luck. Just need to know if these are linear or FET.

Thanks!

EDIT:

Okay. Found the components. Alpha and Omega Semiconductors AON7220. It’s an N-channel FET designed for high switching frequencies and reasonably low Rds(on). I suppose there could still be a feedback loop on the driver somewhere that regulates PWM to keep current in check? But does the LED still effectively see ‘direct drive’ currents?

I want to use one of these to run a CSLNM1.TG in due to its low profile, single sided construction.

My guess is the pitch of the thread cut in the copper pill and threads per inch are different than the previous version of the copper S2+ and the aluminum versions.I think that alone will make a rework extremely difficult or impossible even if the OD of the pill is the same.

never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups

I really see this as the best application of these drivers, but wondering about this design too, anf if anyone has been using them for the CSLNM1.TG.

This is going into a Convoy M2 (SMO) and I’m hoping to hit 100kcd. Mathematically possible, but either way it’ll be the nicest 18650 pocket thrower around IMO. I think P60/M2 dimensions demarcate the largest comfortable-to-pocket size. I’m just starting to use lanyards and am starting to warm up to them, but I sure wish in 2020, high quality, deep carry, low profile pocket clips become available. The bolt on design Simon sells would be just fine if the metal was thicker, stronger, and edges more rounded. I would buy a dozen easily.

I measured the thread of the normal brass convoy s2+ pill:
METRIC. 60° included angle.
1.25mm pitch.

I had this build ready ≈8 months ago. Uses the weird “8 A” SST-40 linear driver, for which I replaced its stock R005 with a R010 + R050 + R200 stack, and it gave me 4.75 - 4.8 A effective. Had to file a standard “XP” gasket. I could measure a hair above 100 Kcd soon after switch on, and a lil bit below 100 Kcd (97 - 98 Kcd) at 30 seconds, if I recall right. With my smartphone, that is a take it with a grain of salt, although the numbers tally.

 

I also found this picture I took of my “square threads” copper pills, I don't have them anymore but it'll provide a good look to Hoop's eyes threading wise:

Nice Barkuti! I just recently hopped onto the Osram bandwagon since there are slightly lower CCTs available from KD. Still have a hard time with low CRI cw emitters, but for a few specific applications, they are awesome! How well did the M1 reflector behave with the NM1?

Yep, they look sort of “black and white” or achromatic versus proper light sources. I wouldn't call them awesome for this reason. They “blow up” the light meter figures, but who cares if you don't like it.

How did the reflector behave? If you're asking about rings or other artifacts, found none as far as I know.
