Received both my e01’s today. Got a black and a silver one. Very nice feel and design. No rough spots and perfect knurling. The silver one feels a tiny bit rough when you rub your fingers along the heat sink but nuthing to bother you.
The design of the reflector/glass gives a pleasant big hotspot beam. And throws quite well. I got 45 kcd and 2400 lumens. So great job!
The size is a tiny bit longer than the eo7. But a tiny bit skinnier than the eo7. I would say this light is a great general use light. It doesn’t do anything extraordinary well. Just a great overall light. I would have liked if they could have given this light more throw with a shaved sst40 instead.
The two things I did not like was that the lowest mode is a low mode, rather than their signature firefly moonlight mode that we all love. And the next thing was I’m unable to set the top of ramp as turbo. We need to double click to get to turbo. On the previous fireflies models, we are able to set the top of ramp to turbo if we wanted. This is a big bummer.
Unless I’m just not doing something right?? 4 clicks does not react to anything…

Thank you for your initial impressions… Is everything glue free?

Anyone know what size mcpcb is used, and if an emitter swap is straightforward?

Just received my silver one. All works as it should. It is very similar in size to the E07. The TIR lens is nice. It is extremely light and does not feel very robust. The tail cap end is somewhat discoloured. I thought it was dirty but have so far not been able to remove the stain.
There are a few very minor marks on the finish, its not pristine by any means but its quite acceptable for the price. Delivery was quick and I am very happy. Roll on darkness my old friend, and I can give it a better test.

Wow that’s so quick for free option given that they said 15-25 days. I paid extra for DHL that is slow and even trackable Facepalm

Is your low mode on the e01 as low as e07? And are you able to program top of ramp to the maximum brightness?

Any chance you can post some outdoor beamshots?

The low mode is nowhere near as low as the E07. I have not tried programming the ramp yet.

Received my E01s, thanks FF and Freeme Smile
Initial impressions are good, i like the size/shape, beam pattern, brightness, switch lights, and it feels good in my hand, this is pretty much the 21700 light i’ve been waiting for. The silver has a plasticky feel to it though, even when compared to the black version, but i kinda like it.
Anduril seems to be missing features though, such as most of the blinkies and muggle mode. I recently read somewhere that TK was asked by FF to provide a stripped out version of Anduril for the E01 but FFs website states Anduril, and that it’s same Anduril as the ROT66, and the UI image on the ROT66 page indicates full Anduril with the all the blinkies and muggle mode, so i have e-mailed FF asking for clarification.

It’s definitely a cut down version. The other E01 thread gives a bit of information

Hello, I received my E01 today and love it as much as all my other FF lights!
I immediately flashed it to real anduril as it’s what I know and use on over a dozen other e-switch lights however I was wondering if the original source code and/or HEX file was available?
I can see it being very useful for loaner lights or lights I give away and potentially as a smaller size starting point for me to add to later.

I’m still on the fence with this light. I just wish it had turbo in the mode sequence. I’m debating selling both of mine e01.

I received mine today, so far I like the flashlight, I am annoyed that the purchased 21700 battery that I ordered with the light has the positive terminal crushed, did anyone else get their flashlight battery like that? Is there any fit issues with this light or did I just get a used battery instead of a new one?

Has anyone measured the dimensions of the TIR lens? Diameter and height?

Looks like Fireflies made the same mistake with too short battery tubes again? (see E07)

Can you guys please check if there's a too big solder blob on the driver spring? This could also lead to crushed terminals.

Also Lishen batteries are too long and may have weak top for all we know.

You said you received the light today in previous post so I’m wondering why you asking for dimension?

I already found the answer 30 × 17 mm why do I want to know you ask? To see what other optic / reflector options are available to try.

Recieved my E01.
I did not get a pocket clip with it. I written an email to FF-lights but no answer yet.
I will flash normal Andúril on it. Oterwise I like it!

Did you order one? It’s not included as default, it’s a $1 add-on you have to choose at the time of ordering.
