Question, is the 18350 tube part of the FT03 Mini package or separately available?

In BG, there is the option of “FT03 Mini flashlight” or the “FT03 Mini + Samsung 30Q” — Are the 18350 tubes included for both version of the item in BG’s listing?

Yup, it seems like a good step forward, and gchart has already done most of the work. I need to get the code merged in… have just been a bit distracted with all the other stuff happening lately.

Can someone tell me exactly what to purchase for flashing firmware? I’ve flashed phones a lot so the computer side is easy, just need to know what to buy

Would be happy ditching the aux and using a simplified UI on the AstroluxFT03 Mini, MF01, EC03 etc if it has the pads

I notice my order description seems to have changed. It says 5700k but I am sure it said 5000k. Shipping 13th of July but BG says it’s in stock. Anyone know what’s going on?

Not for me, and that is because of the battery, the short version for me looks like it lost 65% of the capacity. I believe that only a smaller built flashlight justifies the use of a 18350 battery.

Btw I have the 5000K SST-40 version, the beam it makes is very good without any obvious artifacts or tint shifts, on a 30Q I measure 1800 (honest) lumen at 30 seconds ( Thumbs Up ), the tint is pleasantly neutral at low output but rather purple at high output, the CRI as expected is low, about 66 and at lower settings the CCT is 4700K. The colour leds in the reflector make for a neat effect.

Why do you think its purple? Is it being pushed too hard on Turbo or is it just the nature of SST-40 leds?

It is the nature of this led. The turbo tint is not different from the significantly lower top ramp setting tint. To be more precise, the purple-ish is in the spill and not in the hotspot.

//Edit: Oooops, I posted in this topic instead of the EC03 topic.

 

Thanks, djozz!

Boring flashlights are so very utile. Highly controversial flashlights are so very exciting.

Certain that the purple isn’t from the AR coating?

In my experience AR coatings tend to make it a bit yellower/warmer. Have you seen AR coatings that make it look cooler?

Depends on the colour of the coating, the tint can go anywhere. The green coating of my D80V2 actually works as a minus-green filter, a purple coating removes some red and bluecand so effectively makes the tint a bit greener. I have not seen red or orange coatings (apart from non-functional coatings on very cheap chinese binoculars), those would make a tint cooler.

(the FT03 mini lens has a purple coating)

I love all kinds of lights... storm lanterns, kosmos & matador lamps, gas lanterns, tallow lanterns, flashlights, lasers, tritium vials...

Is it normal to have a yellow spot (XHP50.2) in the center point of the hotspot? This is for the FT03 Mini

If you look closely at my photo, the very center has a yellow spot, I haven’t seen this before on an XHP50.2. Hard to see the spot on some screens

Thanks freeme but this is different.
