Sneak peak for PL47 prototypes. FF is still fine-tuning the final design. Expect a champagne color to match with your ROT66cool

I didn’t realize this was supposed to be a headlamp/angle light. Hmm…

You might want to mention this little detail in the OP. Smile

For now I know that the driver uses FET + 3 AMCs, similar to D4S
one switch LED controlled by MCU
Aux board controlled by MCU

The aux board has a build in low battery warning and LVP
The standby drain of the voltage detect chip and LDO is about 0.05mA
The board will have a 3×3mm SMD trimmer to set the outer LEDs brightness as the user likes

LED colors are not decided yet, in theory it can have each LED with a different color

the low battery and LVP voltages are not determined yet
if the boards detects low battery voltage the outer LEDs shut down and inner LEDs light up, likely inner will be red

The technology of the Aux board is shown here

Are we expecting protected cells to fit in this light?

Can I request that a strong magnet be in the tailcap? Or at least give us the option for those that don’t want it. But it’s very useful in my eyes. Thank you!

That’s kinda cool that they pushed forward the emitters and optics so the battery could tuck behind it all to make it overall shorter than a Zebralight 18650 headlamp, even though it uses a 21700.

+1 for the magnet option.

Holy cow, can’t believe FF got it down to such a compact size for a 21700 light. Thumbs Up This is how I imagined an Emisar headlamp would look like.

At ~150g with cell vs. 111g for a Wizard Pro, this is a hefty beast to strap to your forehead.

I think it’s just the oversized/protruding head, but it reminds me of the movie version of Marvin the Paranoid Android.

With the emitters to the side of the cell, I wonder why they were placed along an edge instead of in the middle. The chunky look would be a lot easier to pull off in the middle, like the Nitecore HC50. Would probably be easier to wear that way too, and to keep it balanced in a headband holder.

I think alot of people will be using this in their hand instead of wearing it on their head so having it near the edge would be easier to hold. I use my headlamps primarily in the hand or standing, sticking it somewhere.

I do wish Fireflies provide a headband with a convenient plastic holder like the popular Armytek one instead of the typical rubber holders that are so difficult to put on or remove.

Are you really going to wear this dumbbell on your forehead?)
And don’t forget about torque because of protruding part.
It is nice handheld light, but as headlamp H03 is much more convenient.
