FW1A Experiences and mods!

Well, in this thread I will show some experiences I made with my FW1A and with some lenses and bezels!

However, feel free to show the mods and experiences you’ve done with yours too Wink

_________________________________

Short Intro
1st EPISODE
I ordered my FW1A from Neal. It had a XPL-HI 3D, a beautiful Neutral White tint.
When I got the flashlight, I decided I wanted to open it to eventually change the LED. However, awkwardly, the bezel was glued so I had to use some force and pliers that damaged the knurling.

To make it even again, I decided to file all the knurling , making it look bare aluminium. I like the way it looks.

2nd EPISODE
After I opened the bezel, I started playing with different lenses and reflectors and meanwhile I ended up damaging the original LED Sad
I replaced it by a Luxeon V 4000K, but I noticed it was also damaged, as there was a darker “stain” in the die. So, I replaced it again by another damaged-but-working XPL-HI U6-4C (not so neutral as the 3D)… Yeah, not good, not perfect, but it works Silly

After putting the light back together, I decided to make some experiences.

Here’s my report of them. IN THE NAME OF FLASHLIGHT SCIENCE, of course Big Smile

_____________________________

Materials you find in this photo:
FW1A with XPL-HI U6-4C

FW1A bezel
FW3A bezel

AR Coated Lens
Sapphire lens (single dome)
Convex Optic (from a zoomie)

FW1A OP reflector (w/ Black Gasket)
Acebeam H20 OP reflector (w/ White Gasket)

1st EXPERIENCE FW1A bezel + FW1A OP reflector + AR Coated Lens

Normal configuration!

2nd EXPERIENCE FW1A bezel + FW1A OP reflector + Sapphire lens

The sapphire lens produces a side reflection of the OP, in the outer spill, due to be convex and non AR Coated. The hotspot gets larger but well defined.

3rd EXPERIENCE FW1A bezel + FW1A OP reflector + Convex Optic

Worst scenario Facepalm

4th EXPERIENCE FW3A bezel + AR Coated Lens

Wall of light, the widest beam! No hotspots, just a very wide beam

5th EXPERIENCE FW3A bezel + Sapphire lens

Wall of light, but not so wide as with the normal lens. The slightly domed sapphire lens narrows the beam a little more. The due to the height of the lens vs space between threads and o-ring/reflector, the lens rattles a little. Another o-ring should be used in case you wanna use this configuration.

6th EXPERIENCE FW3A bezel + Convex Optic

One of my favourite beams produced. It loses distance range, but gains focus and is still very clear. The side “artifacts” are barely noticeable in a non-white space or outdoor.

7th EXPERIENCE FW3A bezel + Acebeam H20 OP reflector + AR Coated Lens

The only small reflector fitting this light with the FW3A bezel. I had to give it a try. It is overall floody and has a floody but still noticeable hotspot

8th EXPERIENCE FW3A bezel + Acebeam H20 OP reflector + Sapphire lens

With the sapphire lens and this reflector happens the same as above with the regular FW1A reflector: the hotspot is more massive, and there are side reflections of the OP. Maybe a SMO reflector would be different…

9th EXPERIENCE FW3A bezel + Acebeam H20 OP reflector + Convex Optic

The beam is much narrower in this configuration, but it has less artifacts (a lot less!) than with he FW1A reflector, specially in the centre. In the side. It has some reflections. It you can ignore the side marks, this is a nice and more focused confirguration.

Well, the optics I have, per se, don’t fit!
However, if you use some holders below the optic, it may be possible. But only the FW1A Bezel. With the FW3A bezel the optics (even some smaller ones) don’t fit.

The optics – at least the ones I have – are smaller in diameter and, specially in height, than the reflector. So, to make them fit by their own, we’d need to add some extra lenses above.

Or, depending on the type of holder, it may fit with some mods.

See the black holder (this is an old photo)? That one matches the height of the FW1A reflector, but it is larger, so it needs to be filed in diameter to fit into the bezel.

Also, one needs to be careful when using these holders and optics due to 2 things:
a) the beam that it will produce, specially it if it is a narrow beam optic and XPL-HI Led
b) the possibility to inadvertently rotate the holder/optic and damage the LED, either it has a dome or not.

A “pebbled” (hive) optic or a “frosted” optic will produce a very wide beam, no hotspot, and homogeneous beam. A 25º or 45º optic…may produce a horrible beam.

Check this hold thread where I made some experiences with different optics and the same led type I have in my FW1A (XPL HI).

Hum, does the light work with that configuration? Flat Stare
Also, is it waterproof?

I mean…I tried using a simple normal “rubber” tailcap as the ones we use in almost all flashlights, and it didn’t work well due to the space created inside, and due to the contacts between driver, host, tube, etc,.

I am really searching for a way to avoid accidental activation (and still keeping the button silent as it is now), but I haven’t found one yet (with the materials I have)!

So, I’d like to know more on this, please! Thanks for showing it Wink

Well, it does work perfectly fine as far as I'm concerned and it has a better tactile feel and no more wobble or scraping between the tail cap and the metal boot.

Regarding waterproofing, I don't think that is the case any longer, as the metal ring sits on the metal (well.. aluminum) tail cap with no seal. I'd say, gluing the metal ring on the tail cap would bring back at least water resistance through.

Regarding accidental activation, it's a bit more recessed, thus more reliant, to say it like that, but I still wouldn't bet my nuts on it in every instance, say.. having stuff in your pockets other than the light itself.. or having it in a backpack (although, having it in a backpack wouldn't really be a situation where you would have a good reason to keep a light unlocked and ready to.. fire)

Before discovering the o-ring switch mod I simply just removed the metal portion of the switch and it was great. Maintained waterproofness and no switching issues. It’s not very pretty, but I’m sure someone can get creative.

Thanks for your reply Wink I guess when I order a D4 I will get a spare switch to try it on the FW3A, even it it may have some issues there! Nice setting as it is Wink
Thanks again!

This would've likely ended up being my solution as well, shouldn't I've accidentally had a spare D4V2 broken head that I could strip the ring and rubber boot from. In addition, probably I would have tried to fill the gap left between the original rubber boot and tail with another o-ring.

Another "quick fix" for whomever might be interested Smile

Not sure how happy everyone is with the current FW1A OP reflector and the beam profile, but I know that I, for one, surely dislike it with a passion (well.. I highly dislike most OP reflectors in general.. )

 

Thus, here goes:

S2+ SMO reflector and thick O-ring

 

The reflector I've used is an S2+ SMO reflector, the one without the "ribs" / "heatsinking cutouts" on the sides, so it would go in just perfectly, not overlapping with the body threads.

This is the reflector I've used: (the SMO version of it)

S2+ SMO reflector no ribs

 

As an added bonus to the nearly perfect beam profile (for my taste) there's also no more outside ringing around the beam as the glass now sits about ~2mm high on the reflector, thus no more "double reflection" of the emitter into the glass and then back into the reflector (there is still some, at a different angle, thus very hard to even spot if the conditions are not right and not looking for it specifically)

 

 [EDIT] I've also had to use a very slim shim underneath the gasket to get the proper height of the reflector on the emitter (for each emitter/reflector there has to be a bit of experimentation) in order to get the perfect hot-spot. My shim was a piece of plastic sheeth from a package, about 0.2mm thickness I'd say as I don't have a precise tool to measure it.

 

[EDIT 2] Forgot to mention.. The S2+ reflector's OD is obviously smaller than the FW1A's bezel ID, thus I've also had to use some "filler" in order to keep it centered - in my case, as I don't have any means of creating "custom parts", I've just used some tape to wrap around the reflector up to the necessary OD, then cut the excess tape width extending further down from the reflectors bottom lip.

 

 

Cheers!

Unfortunately I don't have a good way of taking any good pics of a beam, they would be overexposed and not much difference could be seen in the picture compared to what you're actually seeing in real life. I might try tonight when I'm back from work, but I don't think they'll be any good.

 

[EDIT] Also, I forgot to mention, my FW1A just got an emitter swap and currently running an XP-G2. (well, along with removing 4x7135's and the FET) Now I'll just need to find some time and mod the code and reflash it to reflect the changes. Other note would be that the XP-L HI sample that was originally in my FW1A with the S2+ reflector was giving some egg yolk effect in the middle as some other XP-L HI's, ex. the one I've had in my GT Mini which then got replaced with a different one which I don't remember what it's origin was, but has nearly no egg yolk effect. So I'd imagine with the various bins and tints Lumintop had no option than to go with an OP reflector.

 

Cheers!

 

 

[EDIT 2] Just to avoid double posting..

 

The new XP-G2 emitter:

FW1A XP-G2 A

FW1A XP-G2 B

FW1A removed 4x7135's

FW1A XP-G2 test beamshot floor

FW1A XP-G2 test beamshot brown box

 

Beamshots @4/7 brightness lvl. just to keep the exposure in check.

 

 

Cheers!

I agree with 80T about the beam profile in stock reflector but sure as hell i like S2+ reflector.

Need to try this!

Can you provide more info on removing the fet and such? Was there a change in firmware?

The FET and the 7135's were simply removed with a soldering iron - desoldered the wires on the emitter > removed driver from the head > desoldered 4 7135's on the spring side and the FET on the other side

 

As far as firmware is concerned..

80T wrote:

No, I haven't yet got around that, but I've done the hardware changes in advance given that I was planning to upgrade the firmware on this light regardless, as it's an older version with a couple of missing features.

Thus far, the ramping or the discrete steps are obviously not linear any longer and I'm going to have to compensate for the difference in going from 1 + 7 + FET on 3 PWM channels to 1 + 3 on 2 PWM channels.

Another temporary caveat with the missing FET, is that the Turbo is no longer working because the 1 + N 7135's are both 0 (shut off) at the 150th step leaving only the FET fully open to take over all of the current flow.

This is going to be an easy fix, by editing the steps of the 2 remaining PWM channels and adding the corresponding 150th steps values - hard part here being calculating all of those steps to get a visually linear ramp.

I know there's already a python script somewhere in the code, but so far I've no idea how to use that - I'll probably end up finding an online calculator or something (maybe even something taking straight on py scripts)

I'm thinking of further editing the code and use the 3rd PWM channel (originally FET) as the output for an RGB AUX digitally addressable LED (that is if I can find one that runs on something around or lower than 3V)

This mod would be pretty much the same as what Lexel did for the FW3A (can't recall which PIN did he used for that but it's easy to find the thread on BLF) only I just want 1 x LED and a hole drilled in the light's head.

What I want that AUX LED it's mostly R/G as battery indicator (G/Y/R/Blink R), and maybe the B (since it's already there and addressable.. ) used to indicate/blink some other special states.. Say.. locator indicator or..

 

As a standalone mod, I wouldn't recommend going for swapping the emitter to a lower power one and removing the FET and any 7135's - the advantages are minimal, mostly cosmetic and the output is reduced.

If the beam pattern and the reduced power draw are of a great importance to you, then, if you're willing to edit & reflash the firmware, then, the mod would have meaning. If not, it's just a waste of time and effort.

Myself, yes, I'll take the reduced power draw, I want to edit the battery voltage cutoff to something like 3.2V and I.. CAN NOT STAND the smooth, undefined beam pattern of the original OP reflector & small emitter.

I'm kinda throwing myself head forward on the firmware side of things here and I'll have to reflash the light anyways, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be successful in achieving all of my goals regarding the editing part.

Now, having the Turbo working, that's easy, finding the right steps values for a visually linear ramp ? Idk.. Getting the proper code edits to have an RGB addressable AUX LED to do what I want.. Again, Idk.. Flat Stare

What I know though, it's that I'm willing to give it my best try. Whenever I'll have some spare/quiet time that is and the proper mood for it.

So.. the deed was done Smile

 

Took me a while to calculate the ramping steps for the two channels, but for anyone interested swapping in an XP-G2 (1 + 3 7135's ~1400mAh) here are the PWM levels:

 

#define PWM1_LEVELS 1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,5,6,6,7,8,9,9,10,11,12,13,15,16,17,18,20,21,23,24,26,28,29,31,33,35,37,39,42,44,46,49,51,54,57,60,63,66,69,72,75,79,82,86,89,93,97,101,105,109,114,118,123,127,132,137,142,147,152,157,163,168,174,180,186,192,198,204,211,217,224,231,238,245,252,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255,255

#define PWM2_LEVELS 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,3,6,8,11,14,16,19,22,25,28,31,34,37,40,43,46,50,53,56,60,63,67,70,74,78,81,85,89,93,97,101,105,109,113,118,122,126,131,135,140,144,149,154,158,163,168,173,178,183,188,194,199,204,210,215,221,226,232,238,244,249,255

#define PWM3_LEVELS 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0

 

These are the PWM levels considering no further modding would be done, PWM3_LEVELS being the FET.

Anyone happen to know the dimensions of the FW1A reflector?

I’m curious if the khatod PL114506 optic will fit. I’m not a fan of reflectors and I already have an FW3A.

Anyone seen a GITD oring for the FW1A or know what size oring is between the lens and bezel?

23mm OD is for sure. Diameter of 1mm will need confirmed by someone else.

Sorry for the late reply!
Here are some photos and measurements.
I couldn’t get the GITD o-ring but here you can see the diameter of the stock one! Hope it helps Wink

Looks like the diameter is just about perfect! They might just work without the lens with a FW3A bezel.
