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

well, it’s a start to making everything clear, but very helpful … yes, thank you 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

Does fireflies have any plans to make big light?? Like the size of the acebeam x70gt with the 48 xhp 35 hi ?

Can the illuminated button be switched off?

At night I would like to only have the aux LEDs switched on.
And the button off…

Holy shot! That would be sweet! Maybe 48 White Flat 2mm at 1.5MCD would be a dream come true. Imagine using Anduril lightning mode. That will make you truly feel like Thor like Flashaholic said.

But I have a feeling they wouldn’t want to make something that expensive. At that price, people will be expecting perfection, which is unlikely to achieve for a light of this calibur, and some will be taking advantage of Paypal disputes to get free lights from them for minor imperfections so there’s too big of a risk to make such an expensive light. I hope I’m wrong and FF does have plans to make world record breaking lights at the top end.

Quick calc, 1.5 Mcd with a 1mm white flat would require a 10cm reflector, just one 18650 would do the job. The 2mm2 white flat would need a bigger reflector, and more than one battery would be most convenient.

Don’t think so but you can always have the illuminated button face away from you if it bothers you.

But I’m wishing for 60k+ lumens at 1.5MCD. Big Smile

^so do I, but I’d be ok with the limited output if the light is kept lightweight and compact (I’m still in favor of the box format, batteries and electrical parts at the side of the reflector, led mounted directly on a finned heatsink).

Nope. Two of the four button LEDs are hardwired to power, and can’t be turned off without disconnecting power. The other two are controlled in sync with the aux LED board, so it can’t have one on while the other is off. Sad

Tapping 3 times adds a 30 minute timer to candle mode, does 6 taps add an hour?
