Triple-click on E-switch was what I was thinking too.

Any suggestions on clicky? My old clicky firmware battery check can only be done from off so it doesn’t interfere with normal mode changing. How does it work in other clicky firmware/lights?

In Bistro (has capability to detect “long presses” via an OTC), you long-press from the lowest mode to get into the blinky modes including battery check.

In Biscotti, in some mode groups it’s just an option in the normal modes rotation.

In Babka (a firmware of mine), I hide it behind a triple-click.

Thanks for the info, I haven’t been looking at other firmware for ages. I’m not fond of the first two options, I guess I’ll go with my old method for clicky lights, a click sequence from off.

Was going to say this, but you did it Wink

I guess this would be a nicer option. That way a person wouldn’t need to do “things” when on just to check battery. I have some lights with Bistro (on different drivers and mode configuration) and I find that battery check more usable than the one in Biscotti (in which I would need to cycle through lots of modes to get there).
Still, even in Bistro, the need to long press from the first sequence mode is not as pleasant as clicking from OFF for bat-check, avoiding blinks in the middle of modes.
