I would like to buy one of these flashlights please! LH351D preferred. I will look for how to send payment.

When they are ready for sale you will be sent a Personal Message through this forum. You should also recieve an email to let you know you have a new “PM”.
It should be at least a couple more months, but might be longer depending on how things go.

My Convoy L6 thread with XHP70.2, Texas Avenger FET driver, Narsil v1.2 ramping firmware, lighted side switch and cut down SMO reflector. Lots of amp draws on stock driver as well.

Have the prototypes an AR coating? If the FW3A gets the 90CRI Samsung it would be better without, or?

The prototypes appear to have a mild AR coating. I haven’t seen one in neutral white yet, so I don’t know if it has any significant effect on tint, but it’s definitely not the painfully blue coating on some lights.

FWIW, the lens is 23.0 mm x 1.5 mm. Anyone got a link for lenses of this size?

FW3A Interface

The FW3A uses the Andúril‎ firmware by ToyKeeper. It is similar to Tom E’s fantastic NarsilM, but with some extras.

Basic usage is very simple: Click for on/off, hold to change brightness. But there’s much more available for those who want it.

This is the UI diagram for it, showing most of the functions:

The interface uses mostly the same ramping as Narsil, and basic usage is identical. Click to turn the light on or off, hold the button to change brightness. However, this style applies to both the smooth ramp and the mode group, and the user can switch between them with three clicks while the light is on. No need to remember two interfaces or navigate a config mode.

Ramping also has some additional usability tweaks. If the user holds the button, ramping will always go up unless the button was released less than a second ago or it’s already at the top. To ramp down without ramping up first, do a “click, release, hold”. This eliminates the need to remember which way it was ramping in the past.

Both the smooth ramp and mode group are configurable. The user can set the lowest level, the highest level, and (mode group only) the number of steps. Full turbo is still available via double-click even if the ceiling is set somewhere more sensible.

While on, a double click toggles between turbo and the memorized level. So, if you hear a noise and want full power for a moment, double click. When you’re done, double click again to return to the original brightness.

Two groups worth of blinkies are included. To reach them, do “click click click” from off or a “click click hold”. These include:

  • Group 1: (always starts at battcheck)
    • BattCheck: Show remaining charge in volts and tenths.
    • Sunset: Start at “low”, then slowly ramp down to moon for an hour, then turn off.
    • Beacon: Blink once every N seconds at the last-ramped level. N is configurable.
    • TempCheck: Show current temperature and optionally configure settings for thermal regulation.
  • Group 2: (remembers the last-used mode)
    • Bike flasher: Steady output with a “stutter” once per second. Adjustable brightness.
    • Party strobe: Motion-freezing strobe. Adjustable speed.
    • Tactical strobe: Bright, disorienting strobe. Adjustable speed.
    • Lightning storm: Exactly what it says on the tin. No adjustments available.
    • Candle: Simulates a flickering candle or fireplace. Adjustable brightness. Also works as a self-shutoff timer in 30-minute increments.

A few other modes are available by clicking even more times from off:

  • 4 clicks: Soft lockout. Light won’t turn on until it’s unlocked. This mode doubles as a momentary moon mode, so when the button is held down it’ll light up at the current ramp floor. This is handy for checking something quickly without having to unlock the light.
  • 5 clicks: Momentary / signalling mode. Using the last-ramped brightness, the light will be on when the button is held, or off otherwise. Good for Morse code and such. To exit this mode, physically disconnect power (unscrew the light).
  • 6 clicks: Muggle mode. An extremely simple interface with a limited brightness range — ~10 lm to ~300 lm, with smooth ramping and no blinkies. Persists after a battery change. To exit this mode, quickly click exactly 6 times.

Some features which aren’t visible on the diagram:

  • Low voltage protection will reduce the brightness when the battery is low. If the brightness is already down all the way, it will shut the light off entirely.
  • Thermal regulation keeps the light from overheating. It’s not normally visible by eye though; it ramps smoothly across 512 internal steps to adjust output while it searches for the highest level it can maintain without overheating.
  • By default, the ceiling is set to the highest fully-regulated output level — 3 Amps. This is about 1000 lumens. Full turbo is about 3000 lumens, but cannot be sustained for long due to the heat it creates.

There are also some other interfaces available for this hardware, but it requires the user to flash different firmware. You can make it work like a BLF Q8, or like an Olight, or like a Zebralight, for example. However, these are not tested and not officially supported.

A lot has been said about the taper, finish (or lack of), optics, and emitters and everyone seems like they’ve said what they wanted to say. Haven’t seen a whole lot about the UI and wanted to add:
At this price point I’d buy the light if it was shaped like a turd, had a cool emitter, and had a lousy optic. The most exciting part of this light IMHO is this amazing interface.
Excited about Candle, Sunset, Beacon, LVP, User configurable ceiling (Yes!!), and pretty much everything about it. Toykeeper went all out for this to be special, thank you for your hard work!
This is the stuff or >$100 lights. What’s gonna happen at CPF when this thing pops up as THE light to buy? Should be interesting.

I use beacons at work to remind me that there is another process going on that I need to check occasionally.
Sunset and Candle will be for for bedtime. Not good to sleep with illumination on, this will be nice for winding down.
I’ll even have fun with Lightning storm and Party Flasher when the grandkids come over.
I am more impressed by longer runtimes than max output so I’ll happily set the Ceiling to ~300 lumens.

Anyone else have any use scenarios or plans for the new UI?

Mayor Glenn Welsch: There's a saying in Missouri, if you don't like the weather just wait five minutes. In Blaine, with hard work, I think we can get that down to three or four minutes.

Anyone else have any use scenarios or plans for the new UI?
You’re right, Andúril is awesome. It has totally spoiled me. Big Smile

I’ve been using Andúril since last September when ToyKeeper first released it. I now have it running on the Emisar D4, D1, and D1S, three Q8s, a GT, a swapped X6R, and a swapped Meteor.

Muggle mode is one of my favorite features because I love sharing my lights. It’s great to lend someone a high-powered light without worrying they will burn/blind themselves, enter setup or strobe, or otherwise get confused or frustrated. I click six times to enter muggle mode, hand them the light and say, “Click to turn it on and off. Hold to change the brightness.”

Momentary mode is great for hiking. I wear a headlamp on a low or medium mode and keep a D4 on a high-ish momentary mode. Perfect for a quick look around when reaching a clearing or looking for a landmark. Momentary is cancelled only by disconnecting power, which means no sequence of clicks will accidentally exit it.

Beacon mode has adjustable brightness AND adjustable interval. Thumbs Up

I set the ramp ceiling at turbo-50 on my Nichia D4. This is plenty bright for most of my needs, and won’t heat up in just seconds. Turbo is still only a double click away.

Adjustable frequency party strobe mode is fun. I froze a fan’s motion the other day. Tactical strobe is adjustable too, in case you want to try to make yourself sick. Big Smile

Lockout also acts as a momentary mode set at a low level. Very handy.

I’m excited for Andúril to be installed on a factory built light so that lots more people can enjoy it.

TL;DR: Andúril = amazing. ToyKeeper = genius.

Teacher, it’s true! Who among us hasn’t bought a light that looked great, had our favorite emitter, but the UI was lame? I’ve always thought “I’ll adapt” but wind up giving them away.
I’ve adapted to the Skilhunt H03 UI because I use headlamps differently than pocket lights.
Wouldn’t want it on an EDC.
I’m so stoked about this UI I’m slowly trying to figure out flashing attiny chips so I can put it on some other lights.
The bonus with this light is that it most certainly does NOT look like a turd and won’t have lousy emitter/optic combo.
When I got a ZL SC62d it almost killed the hobby for me because it is such a great light.
I predict this light may slow down my purchases but the UI and the prospect of putting it on other lights and lanterns opens up a whole new branch of the hobby. I used to have a blast doing emitter swaps but that has died down since it’s become pretty simple to buy a light with a decent emitter.
Thanks again to all involved!

Edit: thanks for those details goshdogit! Those little things appeal to me. I hear from non-enthusiast “it’s just a flashlight” but these “little” things turn it into a Versatile Lighting Tool which really does let you do so much more than a flashlight and do it with a sophistication and accuracy that cannot be replicated by a light you’d get off a pegboard display at a hardware store.

Mayor Glenn Welsch: There's a saying in Missouri, if you don't like the weather just wait five minutes. In Blaine, with hard work, I think we can get that down to three or four minutes.
