SP10S appears to single click to Low and then cycles through Low, Med, High, Eco, Low.

I hope that the SP10R UI is different. E.g. Hold to access firefly. Single click through each mode in a uniform manner (Low, Med, High, Med, Low, Firefly, Low, Med, High…).

Nope...

The UI is drafted like this:

 

Hold from OFF ► firefly mode (~0.2lm)

1 click ► ON/OFF

Hold from ON ► Cycle modes low-medium-high (no mode memory from OFF)

2 clicks from ON/OFF ► Turbo ► 1 click to turn OFF / 2 clicks to return to previous mode

4 clicks from OFF ► electronic lockout (on/off)

 

It is set that there will be no strobe modes at all.

Luminous and wired, we'll be glowing in the dark.

What is the status of the project, Lux? I have already got the C01R, but I find it running out of battery too quickly for my use (mostly as a bulb at night).

I don't have any status update yet. Sofirn's factory is currently quite busy, so there might be some delay in rigging up a prototype of SP10R. I will keep you updated as soon as I get any news.

With the UI described I’m in, and I would take one with a white emitter too.

I would also like one with a white emitter with this UI, do you think this UI will be available on all the SP10X?

I must admit, I have no idea about Sofirn's plans for the next generation of AA / AAA lights. It could be that they will introduce a whole new line up of lights or focus on improving the details only. What I can tell so far is that I collected as much (negative) feedback about SP10S as I could find and tried to eradicate any downsides with the concept of SP10R. These improvement suggestions can be found in the OP of this thread.

As soon as Lexel and Sofirn have finished the SP10S Andúril dual chemistry boost driver, there might be a nice option for those looking for a better SP10S with white light.

Luminous and wired, we'll be glowing in the dark.

That’s yet to find out but I expect a truly visible difference between SP10R and C01R on full power. While Sofirn applied a bit more than 1A on C01R’s XP-E2 photo red (on high mode), SST20-DR can possibly driven with 2A (or even more) on full power. In the end, the thermal design of the SP10S host will have a significant impact how far Sofirn can push the limits. As much as I love hotrod lights that can burn your skin (at own risk), there will need to be a reasonable balance between shorting the lifespan of the LED, having a safe maximum temperature and draining the battery.

Ah I see; Thanks for the info. You can put me in as interested.

And thanks for your continued diligence in working with Sofirn to refine and improve these lights for the BLF community.

Hi, I’m very new to the flashlight community and this is my first post here.

I discovered this forum after making my first flashlight order.
The C10R is the flashlight that drew my attention in the first place, and was the first thing I ordered!
I added on that order an SP36 and an SP31, and I also bought an FC11 from a different vendor.

Have no doubt that I will want to add a SP10R to my collection, and will likely want several of them if the bodies have a choice of color finishes.

Please add me to this list if I’m not too late to the party!

I doubt I’d use SOS and strobe modes.

Different blink intervals and intensities may be useful when using this red light with a diffuser as a Rear Light on a bicycle. Too complicated?

This is one of the main use cases that brings me to the flashlight community in the first place.
I’m sick and tired of bike lights that have such opinionated modes.

I’m hoping to find good devices that work well as a bike headlight (considering mounting options as well as all the light characteristics), helmet light, and tail light, while also being useful for general purpose applications.

I can’t count the times my bike headlights have been pressed into service as flashlights, and I can’t count the times I’ve been embarrassed as my flashlight goes into lightning strobe mode or some crazy thing. That’s a feature that literally no one has ever asked for, right?

Interested! (2pcs)

Eventually I skipped purchasing C01R, as I saw this version coming into consideration, which is much better for my needs.

Thank you for arranging this.

Would be appreciable if you tell him to change the rought knurling of their lights on smooth

No worries, You don’t need to commit.

They didn’t even think about the price This is just an “Interest check”. So feel free to say “Yes” it will help Lux and Sofirn to start taking the project to the next level and maybe even lower the average cost/price per piece.
