Hi Neven, your lighted switch boards are 16.5mm in diameter. Can I sand 0.5mm off to make it fit in a Convoy T1?

Switch pad that's connected to central pad/spring is closest to edge, so that's the limit.

I was able to get some additional CULNM1.TG LEDs, but not much, listings are updated.

There was listing for 4xCULNM1.TG before, maybe you've missed it because it was on second page.

No news regarding HX.

Can you change the software in ld-b4? 10 clicks to enter the configuration menu is not enough for me. Very often I accidentally enter this. Can you increase the number of these clicks? for example up to 20?

You can try to enable password for time being. I have had this problem but only right after building light where I am testing everything. In normal use I dont bother to enable password cause I find I dont run into the problem unless I am quickly running through testing and scenarios.

Chatika vas Paus, do you get there cause you “miss” your mode and have to cycle back around? If so, maybe we ask for Bistro-like “long press” to reverse Innocent Innocent Innocent Thumbs Up

A little bit of it. Sometimes. And I love bistroHD just among other things for long press to previous mode.
But…
I mean, I put this driver in Convoy BD06. There is a switch on the side. The thread on the tail is without anodization. When I insert the battery after charging back into the flashlight, I sometimes have the switch pressed, flashlight is turned on, but I don’t know that. Then the flashlight starts flashing when screwing the tail and thus activates this menu.

He is probably doing some maintenance. The site loads in to a single ‘led4power’ at the top.

Hi,
I did it on purpose, as a owner of small company in my country (something similar to "workshop" in US) I reached max. allowed income limit for such small companies this year. This means I can't take any new orders till 01/01/2020. Since I'm expecting income increase in 2020, I will also open "real" LLC/GmbH equivalent company early next year, which doesn't have such limits (but taxes are higher and it's more complicated in general).
Good side is I will have 2months of free time available for new products development, so I will focus on those from now on 100% of time.

Page will be visible soon, but all products will be "out of stock".

This sounds like a terrible way to treat business owners. Having something like this you will actually sell more but lose money until you surpass the threshold (again). Facepalm

I’m glad to hear that your business is doing well. I look forward to supporting you in the new year. I’ll try and help you offset those extra costs some Smile

Well, this business model is created for start-ups,workshops, etc. and it works ok, there is much less paperwork compared to real limited liability company, so I'm not complaining.

Before that model, there was basically nothing that would be good for "start from scratch" companies, rules and amount of paperwork are the same regardless of your income and size of your company, 10 000€ or 100 milion € income - same rules.

Anyway,plan is to have new LLC for bigger customers/orders, and leave this smaller company/workshop for small orders.

I would like a little help here.. I ordered the MOSX2 4xP-C MCPCB awhile ago (with leds) and ended up ruining it by drilling out the mounting holes too much and shorting the traces to the base. I ordered another one after that and re-flowed the components to the new board but still can't get it to work properly. Below is a picture explaining the problem.

 

49234334732_4203d142bb_o 

 

Basically if I solder the led pads onto the board it shorts out some of the traces. I checked the traces to the aluminum base and there is no continuity there so I don't think I've done what I did last time.

You need to use those small FR-4 pad boards on those pads first, without them it's very hard to solder wires because this board is large and sucks heat from soldering iron too quickly:

Without those pad boards, actual + and - pads are these:

Pads in green are just there for mechanical purpose, to make soldering pad boards easier, you can see vias on pad boards only connect actual + and - pads to upper copper layer.

Note: "- pad" here means pad which connects wire to mosfet Source pins, not LED - (cathode).
