KR1 W2 arrived today first impressions are good (except the clip). Performs a bit better than a decent C8 at a fraction of the size.

“Got” the KR1 with W1 and W2 today. Can pick it up in the post office tomorrow. Will try to make a few beamshots for comparison, but there’s a small issue with the sun. The nights are not as dark as during winter.

I’m looking forward to a W1 v. W2 comparison.

Got my KR1 W2 today and it's a.pretty nice light! Couple questions:

 

1.  Is there any Anduril F/W for the KR1 anywhere yet? I looked here http://toykeeper.net/torches/fsm/ and don't see the KR1 listed.

 

2.  Is the cheat sheet for Anduril the same as the one for my D4V2?

 

Now I just have to wait until dark to go outside and play with my KR1.

1. http://toykeeper.net/torches/fsm/anduril.2020-04-27.noctigon-k1.hex this is the latest, which you might have already. Do 15 clicks and read out the date in YYYYMMDD blinks or is it YYYYDDMM i forget
2. pretty much the same

Excellent and thanks!  Didn't realize it was the same as the K1.  

 

Well, just did 15 clicks numerous times because I keep getting a version that doesn't exist.  I get 20200327 unless there is a mistake in the code that makes it flash out the incorrect month.  I'm guessing it should be 20200427 since that one does exist and is the one you linked.

Oh opps I put the wrong link. I guess TK hasn’t made one for the KR1 but it’s probbly the same as the kr4.

I wouldn’t flash any firmware at the moment as long as we don’t know which firmware it runs. The KR1 does not use direct drive and I don’t know if this is limited by hardware or if the FET is disabled just by firmware.

My KR1 arrived in Germany last Friday. In my experience, it will now spent about 10 days at the customs Tired . It is so much nicer to forget about an order and being surprised when something arrives Wink .

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

Noticed this after just 30 seconds on turbo (not more than 2-3 seconds at once with longer pauses in-between; only quickly for the beamshots) with the KR1 W2:

I hope Hank offers me a replacement head. This should not happen with a premium flashlight

Anyone who has a KR4 with 18350 tube—the standard pocket clip obviously does not work but can the lanyard ring still be installed with 18350 tube? It looks like the 18350 tube provides no space “in between” but it’s hard to tell.

Dang, that sucks.  I've had mine (W2 also) on turbo for probably a total of 2 or 3 minutes with 30-40 seconds at a time maximum and no such issue.  So far, I love this light!

 

Hope Hank makes it right for you.  Maybe it's a defective LED?

Didn't like the fact I couldn't use the lanyard ring and clip at the same time so I fixed it.  I always (for the last few years) put a finger loop lanyard, first made of paracord or some other small cordage. Then CountyComm came out with their titanium beaded chain a couple years ago and it's all I've used on all my EDC lights since.

 

 

 

 

 

Always use a good cutting fluid and this stuff is the best (been using it for almost 20 years).

 

The bit I used.

 

Nice clean hole.

 

All done with a titanium CountyComm split ring.

How does the driver work on the KR1 with different emitter configurations, same driver just different programing? W1 limited to 5A, W2 to 7A and full FET for XPL HI and SST40?

You're welcome!  I can't even leave new stuff alone if it isn't the way I want it.

I better don’t ask for the purpose of a titanium split ring. Big Smile

Lol, wanted to have a closer look at the “spotted” LED in my KR1. There is one of these transparent o-rings between the head and the bezel. Yeah, these crappy ones that break easily. Mine got stretched pretty badly and it wasn’t easy to screw the bezel back on. Probably not water resistant anymore. Maybe it’s time to order a bigger set of o-rings…

There were some splatters of flux all over the MCPCB. And I found some tiny solder balls. Quality control could be better.

Btw, Hank offered me a replacement MCPCB. Thumbs Up I think I can live with that and for Hank it should be more cost efficient than everything else.

Beauties:

D4V2, SST-20, 3000K, KR1, XP-L Hi 5D, 4000K

The color of the KR1 isn’t show correctly. It is a desaturated cyan, probably a color that cannot be pictured well digitally. Love it.

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

I have read on another thread that Hank offered to custom-build a D4v2 with Luminus SST-20-DR (deep red, 660nm). I would be highly interested into something like that in a KR4 but I wonder how four of these LEDs will cope with any of Hank's drivers. I would prefer hardware-based current control instead of a custom-coded Andúril version.

Neither. It’s a little bit rough, but very fine.

Yes, we have customized this LED in the KR4, KR4 driver can be fully regulated without direct drive.
