the screw does wiggle.

this is how Clemence solved the problem, he got rid of the screw and with his mastery of soldering, he got a blob to stick to the aluminum ring around the driver. It required complete disassembly, which includes removing the switch..

Wow, great thread! The UTorch tint is so much improved! I really like the look and features of that light, not so much the original yellow color. Love all of the examples you’ve provided with the different lights and their color representation.

Yes, the stock NW Utorch tint looked awful on white paper, but it worked very well even in stock form

fwiw, they are on sale atm for $20
I am resisting buying more

It could be worse..
I dreamed replacing a nano Sim card in your phone was a model for emitters in flashlights.
Imagine having to buy all your favorite lights again to swap around your collection of little 9080 E21A chips….or whatever.

Lol
Dont buy a Utorch S1 Mini, they have a problem with a loose ground wire
I have not heard of that issue w the Klarus model, which also has a more reasonable medium mode, that lasts twice as long

or, wait a bit, and I might have an S1 Mini for sale.. it has been on Vacation in Bali for the past 2 months, should be home soon.. I has had a 9080 LED swap, and the ground wire has been repaired, so it wont be 19.99.. start saving your pennies..

I could see Clemence coming out with a whole new line of preloaded Chip products, maybe they could be made to fit my iPhone.. with ramping brightness using the volume buttons.. LOL

Thanks for the info about the groundwire. I pretty much fell in love with the massdrop Tool over the last few days, so I have the brass version as well as the regular copper with 219b coming. No more lights till next month! Maybe she’ll be back from vaca by then. OMG I wish I’d never found this forum. Smile
