Our very first flashlight collaboration with MEOTE (new manufacturer) and Banggood.

We have been working hard on this brand new concept for about 2 months. Fortunately, we have a team of talented engineers to help us translate our ideas into reality.

 

I will touch on how i derived with FM1 concept, and approach we took to ensure this light stays relevant for the next few years soon. 

 

I am absolutely thrilled to see first FM1 working prototype today.

Time to put this light into test! cool

I already wanted to write “I’m in” but I noticed this shi*y optics that gives a nasty distribution of light.
Is this what is in e.g. S41?
I hope I’m wrong.
Why not Carclo?

Interested if those fins in the head are copper... If not, well i don't feel comfortable running quad in titanium. I know there are other materials also but Ti and SS are great for work in the garage.

Good looking, neutral LED option, Anduril, and that is my favorite clip attachment method Thumbs Up
Not a fan of tail switches, but I’m still interested.

Our very first flashlight collaboration with MEOTE (new manufacturer) … uses free software … GPL v3

Just a quick reminder: This means MEOTE is legally required to provide source code for the firmware shipped on the light, including all information necessary to build the same exact version the light ships with.

The license requirements are pretty easy to satisfy, but several companies have been violating the license and I want to make sure that doesn’t happen.

The short version is: If you distribute the compiled version (like, installed in a product), you have to make the source code for that version available to anyone who wants it. Simply saying it uses free software isn’t enough. Adding a link to my repository isn’t enough either, because my repository doesn’t have a build target for this light.

I like the design, the logo or name not so much. I’d rather have it clean all around.

Interested depending on what kind of optics it uses, the rest is pretty familiar stuff.

BG & I will ensure MEOTE comply with GPL v3 licence standard.
