I think all the Fireflies I’ve seen have purple led buttons. Should they not all match unless specified?

E07 and PL47 always have purple button leds regardless of what color aux leds you order. I don’t know about ROT66.

How cool would it be if Jack had matched his lights to specific Firefly colors? Each model having it’s own distinct switch color?

“When fireflies give off light, they do so in a handful of different colors. These colors include vivid yellow, yellowish-orange, green and yellowish-green.”

And yes, I’m aware that my post count is, once again, about to trip an epic rollover… how does this happen? I may have to make a light from scratch for this one, seeing as how it coincides with the new year and all…

Since there are trimpots on the aux board, am I right to assume the bezel is not glued?

There are pots on the other models with glued bezels too…but yes, the E07 bezel is not glued.

I wish they would have made it more clear that the button LED color is always purple. had I known this, I would of course had ordered purple aux instead of blue.. Facepalm

Come on, whoever thought that it is a great idea to offer different LED options and then not match the buttons, what where you thinking.. Facepalm

I already know I will hate this. Probably I will just try to find a way to cover up the button somehow or just disable the blue aux. Sigh.

Is the button on E07 as mushy as the one on PL47? I’m still on the fence and while I love the idea of clear ano I’m worried of QC issues. Has anyone received this flashlight without any flaws?

I have 2 pl47. One has mushy button and the other one doesn’t.

Thanks for the pic!

My guess is the E07 on the picture has the “purple” aux-LED (Fireflies website list “ice-blue” and “purple” aux-LEDs, though NealsGadgets had also “red” aux-LEDs for the E07).

The middle PL47 has the “ice-blue” aux-LED (I also got the PL47 and the aux-LED looks the same).

The rightmost one — is that a different aux-LED or is that the low-voltage “red” color (looks “amber” or “orange” in the pic)?

the other day i replaced the driver of my dads utorch ut02. When i put the battery in, the side switch lit up but no light out the front. After a quick search it turned out the tube that was in the wrong orientation.

You can’t put the tube in backwards on an E07. The threads are totally different.

My EO7 will hopefully arrive tomorrow. Hope it works with no defects. Keeping fingers crossed! Cool

Anyone have a picture of an EO7 next to an Emisar D4 with 18650 tube?

I dont have a PL47 but I can say the switch is quite different from all my other switches. Not as much pressure required to click and not as much tactile feel when you do press it. It takes a little getting used to when you are configuring things but it’s not so bad after you know what to expect.

Yes, it’s the low voltage red.

Oh wow, that’s significantly longer than I thought. I don’t remember what was the originally advertised length, but they added several mm to it since the first CAD drawing. I see that it’s 112 mm now. And here we have a request to make it longer, closer to 110 mm.

Just got my e07 in, of course broken optic leg and screw in the wrong hole. Damn that pisses me off. And i got the clear ano and the body is way brighter than the head. They most definitely have some qc issues going on. My emisar was perfect when it arrived. Better catch up ff or you aint gonna last.

Yea, you can see that in the pictures. I think the head is stainless and the body
aluminum so they are going to look different. I wonder if the oils from your skin will change the aluminum over time like it does copper. Hate to hear more quality issues, I ordered 2…..

Mostly the same here – bright tube dull head and tail cap – screw in the wrong hole broken optic leg – also got a grey one – screw in the wrong hole and broken optic leg and the tubes are too short to use Samsung 21700’s without copper washer in the tailcap

Just got my yellow E07. Haven’t tried opening it up yet, but I can see from looking in the front that one leg is broken off.

On the upside, the light seems to work fine and is incredibly bright. It works fine with the Samsung 40T that I got with the light or with a VTC6 using the 18650 spacer. Anodizing looks well done with no issues.

Mine showed up today, having been ordered directly from FireFlies store. It was ordered with a Samsung 40T option, as listed on the store page (yes, can be had cheaper elsewhere, but figured throw them the shekels, and surely it’s been tested in the light). This was ordered before the battery size issues came to light from a couple of review videos.

Well, light had battery already installed, and crushed. I’m not impressed. Sure, the light works, but I’m not messing around with cells with the slightest issue. I’m not going to bother trying to resolve this with fireflies – seems likely a waste of my time, so I’ll consider it a cheap bottle of wine drunk and gone.

Bummer, I had high hopes for the light & new company.

Dull tail cap too? The tail cap images on page 1 of this thread look the same as the body. That sucks, plus more quality control problems? Facepalm Can someone with the clear post a “real picture”. All I find is hand model images holding displays.

The bezel is stainless for sure. But im saying the actual aluminum head doesn’t have the bright luster that the body and cap have.

My cap and body are very bright. That clear ano is too much for ff to handle as far as consistency goes. And my 30T and 40T fit all the way without crushing the battery cap. But it couldn’t be any shorter to work so that battery is very snug. Makes the light feel like its 1 piece billet.

What copper washer did you use? Just a standard M14×20×1.5mm?

When I take a picture of the light the tail cap does not look as dull – that is probably why the picture on page one does not show the difference – but in your hand it is obvious.
