can you please measure the length of your E07 battery tubes?

73.93mm if i have it nice and flush. Several readings just above 74 too but I think it was crooked.

Battery is around 70.5mm

Driver side spring bypass is a pretty decent size blob but it’s only attached to the top of the spring and the spring will still flex a bit allowing the wire to compress into the driver. From ~4mm to 2mm

Well said SKV89    My two E07's have not arrived  yet, but whatever I get I'm going to cut ff some slack as they created something pretty special here.  Obviously there are many E07's that are working just fine and in time they will figure it all out.  I have two rot66's, one with anduril and the other with narsilM and both are perfect after members here helped me figure out how to adjust the battery cage on one of them.

Received my clear ano Nichia 219. Oh man.. Its perfect. Colour of light is good. Machining is so nice,, feels good to touch. Can barely feel the machining with nails.. Awsome. Switch needs to be pressed hard. Just perfect.. Im happy, thanks FF

The tubes on both of my E07s are 73.93mm. However, the solder blob on the spring in one of the heads is a bit larger than the other, so the same battery sticks out more of the tube on that unit.

Given other people reporting tube length of 73.93mm, it seems the issue is not manufacturing/QC but simply that the design of the tube was spec’ed too short. I’d pay $5-$8 for a new 76mm tube so I can avoid the gap caused by inserting a copper ring in the tail cap.

how does one return all settings to default position? Or is that done individually? Facepalm

thanky for your measurements!
mine is 73.9mm too

(so its not a manufacturing variation)

another puzzle piece:
the guys with the non sharp fins have the clear ano version? right?
colored heads are sharp?

About people’s UI questions, the manual might answer a few things. It’s written for Anduril in general though, not for any specific model of light. So some details will probably differ on a per-model basis.

EVERY FF and Anduril user should download and print this out. It makes everything clear. Thanks for posting this TK

There isn’t a factory reset function yet. I’ll probably add one at some point though… mostly so people can auto-calibrate the temperature sensor. The idea is to hold the e-switch and then tighten the tailcap to connect power, then keep holding for a few seconds to confirm a reset is desired. Then it should reset all config values and calibrate the current temperature based on the assumption that the light is about 21 C.

I took a quick stab at it last month for the FW3A, but it’s trickier there because it physically can’t have the button pressed until after power is connected.

…. thanks ToyKeeper, I’ll give it a go.

edit: 21 Celsius = 69.8 Degree Fahrenheit

Correct I compared them. The clear anodized version has small chamfers on the fins whereas the earlier colored versions have sharp edges. Guess they listened to your request.

The big blob of solder on the driver springs of my two lights costs >1.5mm of spring compression, maybe 2mm on one of them
.
Edit: (that’s after I nipped off what was above the top of the springs)

Make sure the solder blob is only sticking to the top coil. If it sticks to the top and 2nd coil and keeps them from compressing that could cost you some space. Press on the spring with your finger, it needs to go about half way down. If it doesn’t make sure the bypass wire is able to go into the driver hole when pressed. If it binds up/is kinked that could be an issue too.

Why solder blob the spring at all. My PL47 has one and it does use up a couple of mm of precious space.

I have an E07 on the way. So far four ROT66 and one PL47 in the armory.

A bit more output. I agree though factory spring bypass is risky. They already use high current springs so it’s probably a smallish gain for a lot of risk with battery fitment and risk of breaking.

I have a clear and i look at the deges of the fins and the edge is machined flat on the edge. So the edge on mine is great. Feels like a rounded edge

My dark gray is not rounded. Anyone with a clear have a good enough camera to show that edge? I know Dale will take his signature pics

Wow more than I could have hoped for. You can even see the machining on the flats. Thanks for the pic i bet that makes a big difference in how it feels

I noticed the extra chamfering on the clear ano version when I saw vinh’s pic. Thanks for confirming this.

Got my e07 in today and the light was smaller than expected even after seeing all the pictures. And was impressed with the light even after hearing all the positive reviews. This is my top and favorite smaller size light out of my fairly large collection. The only con I have is the heat sinks are kinda rough…almost a bit sharp even. So I looked over my instruction and even the pdf manual but I can’t seem to figure out how to change my UI to the smooth ramp. It’s set to the step ramp currently. I would like to make it to have the lowest floor possible and have the highest ramp the same as turbo. Can somebody help me please.

Turn the light on. 3 flast clicks switches between stepped/smooth cyclically.

When on and smooth selected, 4 fast clicks. Light will blink once, then flicker. Click once and wait.
Light will blink twice, then flicker. Click once and wait. Light will be set to lowest low for floor and highest high for ceiling.
(It’s supposed to be that by default, mine was not).

Max ramp should be under 50% power by default.

The default ramp ceiling is 120/150 for the dimming levels. Not sure how that correlates to output though, it would probably change a lot per LED/battery type/# of LEDs.

I get 8300 Turbo and 2830 max ramp.

I’d like to know if setting max ramp to 8300 lumens increases the brightness of Lighting mode

Pretty sure lightning mode utilizes the full DD capability and is not influenced by the ramp setting.

Shirnask, great pics, shows quite clearly that FF was listening and I, for one, love it! Smile

Edit: Mine is at the local Post Office, scheduled for delivery tomorrow (Monday) Big Smile

It’s a lot of fun, I’d love to see Acebeam implement lightning mode on the X70-GT.

I’d feel like The God of Light and Thor at the same time. Turning night to day or creating lightning.

I have Anduril on my 458 Ham’r (25,000 plus lumens) and it is, indeed, a lot of fun. All that’s missing is the thunder… Wink

Time to add a speaker and fake thunder sounds synced to Lightning mode to the Ham’r? Evil
