Are there more detailed specs on that triple? I’m interested.

Seems like it’s a non standard size, so optics can’t be swapped, 7135×14 running crescendo unless that’s changed. Simon was trying to run it on an attiny13 but it requires an attiny25 to work properly, I guess he got that sorted out. 3x SST-20. Simon probably still has the common binned greenish tinted ones since the good tinted SSTs are apparently hard to get unless you are Lumintop.

I’m curious to see the beam profile with that reflector. It would make it interesting to swap emitters…

Anyone tried the SST40 in DA tint yet?
My Convoy S21A with SST-40 5000K arrived today, so I went white wall hunting.

I assume it is this emitter: SST40-40-WDS-F50 FLUX: N5 Color: DA Voltage: VJ CRI: 70

At 100% does not look green even next to my E07 219B sw45k. Very likely below BBL.
At 30% it still does not look green even next to my E07 219B sw45k. Probably below BBL.
At 0.1% and 3% it looks green/yellow next to my E07 219B sw45k. Probably above BBL.

I did not do any measurements though. Spill is noticeably cooler than hotspot and corona.

I like rosy tint, and I can instantly see green/yellow tint on some of my SST-20 4000K lights. I don’t see any green tint at 30% and 100%, it looks “pure white” on a white wall.

Sounds great, potentially amazing with a dedome/slice?

Thank you for the feedback. Looking forward mine! It’s probably the best tint sst-40 I’ve heard about. When used outside that little bit of green/yellow at low currents should be acceptabl….

However, I doubt slicing the dome would improve things. All the 6500K SST-40 dedomes/sliced domes I’ve tried all went horribly green/yellow at lower currents. I’m not gonna try it again, unless someone has the balls to slice their 5000K ones…

Now that 5000K is actually readily available (unlike when the FT03 came out) I might be persuaded to give it a go… just gotta get a nice sharp blade and some washers.

Got an issue with my XHP35 driver in a L21A host with a freshly charged 40T – on 100% mode it will just flash and drop back down to 1% mode instantly. Also makes a high pitched whine sound that gets louder as you go to 10% and 40%.

Any ideas?

high resistance or low voltage,friend

Weird one. Couldn’t see a problem. Took it apart, put it back together, worked fine.

Uch why can’t I find it? It is so annoying…

Hi Simon. Prosperity to you! )
I checked the operation of the Convoy M3 thermal control, it worked at a temperature of 37°C on the surface of the head of the flashlight. I think this is very early, I would prefer the operation of thermal control at a temperature of ~50°C-55°C on the surface of the head of the flashlight.
Was this conceived, or is this a mistake and will be fixed in the future? Are the thermal control settings the same in all new flashlights?
But the function of thermal control itself is very important in flashlights, I was very glad when the thermal control appeared in flashlights Convoy
Thanks!

Sorry for my poor english.

It’s probably 55 degrees at the driver; given the difference you’re noticing, 55 degrees at the front would be 71 degrees at the driver (and if there’s wind cooling the front, potentially even higher….)

Simon, any ideas about this ?

i didnt get reply from manufacturer,yet.
i will reply you later

Hi Yokiamy, you were answered here but image links seem broken now.

Agree. The lamp is just warm outside, but if you disassemble it quickly, and touch the driver, it almost burns your hand.

In this review (http://budgetlightforum.com/node/67612), thermal control behaves well. Perhaps the problem is only in M3, on S11 I have no data.

Simon, is it possible to make turbo mode access only after 2 click, from any position(on or off) without memorizing it? So it could be 0,1% – 1% – 10% – 40% and turbo after 2 click

yes ,and what driver model?

It could be in driver for SST40 and new 3*SST20

If turbo is only 1-2 min I can’t see point of memorizing it, and it would give more modes, 4 in loop and turbo when needed. Then it could be really “turbo”, not the highest mode

I definitely want it for S2+ with SST40 (and all other models too:)
Is there any estimates when it will be available?

After removing the NTC of the driver, the temperature regulation is gone.
I am very happy with it now, the light now works as intended, just full power on max (and yes, it does get hot after a couple of minutes, but still a lot better then the Astrolux FT03 though)

THIS is how i did it

Probably, this is more or less a matter of (inefficient) thermal conductivity. If the driver gets hot like crazy but the host structure around it remains much cooler Simon should look for ways to improve the thermal transfer and dissipation. I could imagine that the driver does not make good contact to the M3 host or cannot dissipate the heat due to non-conductive materials.

I faced the same situation with my M3. No matter how often I restart the highest mode, it never really gets very warm on the outside.

Have you guys tried stuffing the driver cavity with silicone cubes? I found it worked well with a Convoy S3 and 5A 4-mode Convoy driver. The host did become hotter* before thermal regulation kicked in. In the M3, a lot of the driver’s heat should be absorbed by the silicone cubes allowing for longer turbo runs.

Since the drive detects the temperature of the component, not the temperature of the surface of the case, I have raised the threshold for temperature protection at around 60 degrees.

In addition, more heat-dissipating rubber blocks can be added to the driving surface.

Looks good!

I saw a report on reddit that the current H1 batch has the new UI (similar to Thrunite), is that right?
