So I’m wondering what kind of current this thing draws. Sony VTC6 would be the best option? I haven’t bought cells for mine yet, but seems like it only takes unprotected.

Earlier today I ordered a Fireflies ROT66 flashlight from the Fireflies website using Pay Pal to pay. I have received no email order confirmation from Fireflies. The payment on Pay Pal site is in some sort of limbo – it says: “This is a temporary authorization to make sure your payment method will cover the payment. Your payment method will be charged when *** completes your order.”

This seems odd. Is this normal?

I ordered mine July 26 and also didn’t get a Paypal confirmation email. Very strange. It does show up on my Paypal account.

Does anyone know the thread size of the hole the lanyard ring screws into?

Is it tripod compatible? I don’t know about other countries, but in the US that would be a 1/4-20 UNC thread. Thanks.

a short view on optional gear that likely will be added to next batch, easy to install if just used with the LED+ and a screw to connect it to battery

or connect the positive to the indicator LED output (before the resistor)
each of the 3 LED rings has a trimmer for brightness adjustment

low battery and shut down voltage can be adjusted if I build them
of course I will be making those in custom colors, production from fireflies will be likely only one option

The used LDO and Microchip have a very low standby draw of about 50uA, LEDs can be build in different max. brightness settings

function like this tail switch

Sweet! Lucky I haven’t ordered a second one yet. Can you sell these separately? I would love to install these on the one I have on order.

I will have them in about 3-4 weeks with next board order from China

Lexel can you measure the optic and see if larger domed LED’s fit under it (like LH351D). Fireflies seem to think it wont fit but that would surprise me if that was the case.

I’m really interested in what kind of runtimes we can get out of the highest regulated output for the Nichia version and if heat is an issue. I’m assuming that’s 1-1500 lumens?

Thanks for the response.

I suppose if I do buy one, I can make a simple adapter for tripod use.

I’m trying to hold off buying more lights, but this seems like such a great worklight, it’s really tempting.

I ordered a Nichia version from the GB.

Hoping I won’t regret not ordering the XPL HI version which has more throw and nearly twice the output. I was thinking the 3D tint might be too cool and the 4B tint might be too green. So I chose the Nichia, which should have great tint but won’t have the wow factor of the 3D.

@Fireflies:
May I repeat my question:

How is the bezel fixed?
Is it just screwed, or glued, or pressed …
Can I open it without damaging the light?

Edit:
One more question: can I open the switch bezel to get access to the switch board without scratching it?

steel_1024 got his off and only mentioned the driver glue but I suppose this is not definitive confirmation:
