Just blue, can’t recall modes. Really want one of these but still waiting on a ylp I ordered to try out. Different colors would be a cool upgrade

Thanx!

Nothing much changed compared tot gen1 in my opinion, except the bezel and better assembled inside(no more Broken legs on the optic?).
It also looks like the pocket clip many people complained about is still the same?
Also, champagne color isn’t available anymore,only black…What a shame
I’m gonna pass this one and stay with my gen1

Look what the mailman just dropped off Big Smile

Just some quick pics, first impressions are good.

Anduril firmware has the double click levels in lockout. So it’s a fairly recent build it ships with. The tailcap magnet is strong enough to hold the light in funny angles, even on round pipes.
The switch has had a huge upgrade. It’s firm and tactile, no more squishy button. And the switch SMD’s are aligned, yay.

The beam is perfect. A bit bigger than the stock optic in a Emisar D4. I ordered mine with 219B.
Side by side with my D4Ti, with 219b. The PL47v2 is a bit brighter. Being firmware or other factors i don’t know. But it def’ has more power.

The first pic is a comparison of a D4S with tint mixed 219C’s. 2× 4000K and 2× 5000K. vs the 219b’s 4500K.

Other pic is the “ice blue” AUX leds compared to the D4S’ cyan AUX. The PL47v2 is bright. The AUX settings are; OFFFLASHING – ON.
There is no low for some reason. Looking forward to getting a flashing adapter so i can mess with the firmware Smile

Other than that tiny little firmware thing, and wishing the magnet was a tad stronger. It’s still a 9.5/10 recommendation.

I ordered mine directly from FF a few days after they released it Party

Received my PL47 G2 with 219b sw45k. First impressions are very good. The switch is muuuch better than on the first models and the ice cool aux lights are neat. The tint is glorious neutral white with rosy tint, which brings out color beautifully. Very happy with the backlighted switch too. Didn’t realize this had a modified Anduril, was a bit surprised that there was no blinks at floor/ceiling/7135. But no important features are missing from what I can see. It even has the manual memory, which was added recently (five clicks from on).

Wow, duv -0,0098 on turbo, that’s monstrous Crazy

I’d happily take something mildly negative duv instead.

It would be also nice, if FireFlies could source SST-20 from the GDx tint quadrant (slightly below 3500K).

Maukka also like it…anyway big thank for cri test and now confirm High cri from this light is awesome news.

@hasddie293, you are going to absolutely love it.

It’s not a big deal though. Would prefer the original way, but as long as you configure it right, it’s going to matter at all.

High CRI with a very nice balanced floody beam(SST-20 of course).
Superb handling.
Stronk magnet. Smile
FD2 SST-20s. I got lucky since the first units came with FD2 SST-20s.
Great Anduril UI.
Creamy output
Good thermal handling.
Stupid good waterproofing.

Some standby drain measurements:

PL47-2 AUX off: 0.09mA (6.3years to drain it’s 5000mAh cell)
PL47-2 AUX on: 1.75mA (119days/0.33year to drain it’s 5000mAh cell)

The AUX leds are BRIGHT, but also sucks a lots of juice. As a comparison; the light consumes 3mA on the ramp floor (219b leds).

But i use the AUX leds to indicate the light is “active/not locked out”. I always unscrew the tailcap to lockout my e-switch lights. So the high AUX drain is no biggie Beer

I like that even with turning the aux leds off, the two switch backlights are still on and like you tested, their drain is negligible.

So I just received mine and put a 30Q in it. I got the sst20 4000k version. Is the 30Q a bit too high current for this version? I have not noticed any issues but can’t see any specific warnings about using high current cells.

Should be fine. 30Q peaks at 20A, settles at about 15A, thats max 5A pr. emitter. The SST-20’s can handle currents above 6A, so no worrys Smile
The driver will throttle down due to heat, waaay before the emitters takes any damage

Can anyone measure the inside diameter of the Fireflies PL47 gen II tube? What 21700 batteries are you using? I bought 2 Shockli IMR Purple 4550mah, and they are somewhat thicker than normal, 21.5mm or so. Will they serve for the PL47 GEN 2?

Yep, having the same problem with my 26650 Shockli batteries, they want come out my Haikelite SC04…
I don’t have a gen II, but my gen I measures 22.2mm(I assume gen II has still the same batterie tube)

Thanks for your reply. Well, if the tube measures 22.2mm there would be no problem to use my 21700 Shockli. Good news.

By the way, I also have 26650 of Shockli, IMR 5500mah, and they fit without problems in my Haikelite SC01 and SC02.

Next week I hope to receive the PL47 Gen 2 and I will tell if there are problems or not with the 21700 of Shockli.

I just put a Shockli 4550mah 21700 in, and it fits fine. A bit snug but not tight. Also a Liitokala 4000mah 21700 fits too.

What version/revision of Anduril is used in the GEN2 version ?

And will it also have flashing vias as GEN1 had? Smile

Firmware can be flashed using a right key-pin , just like GEN1.

I red somewhere that flashing the Gen I was only possible when the aux leds were disconnected.
Is that also with the Gen II?

Looks like it is on manual memory mode.
When light is on, press 5H(4 clicks and hold the 5th).That should solve your problem

Oh woah!

The anodizing is so much thicker on the PL47 V2.

Way more than the Gen 1, about the same as on the FF E07.
