Hi Freeme, any news on the quad versions?

Cool, cant wait for the beamshots.

Ok this is what i managed to do in a hurry, manual mode, same settings for all photos, daylight white balance., all lights on turbo after 10 seconds, all toped up batteries, target was the same for all lights.

Here the difference in throw between the EA01 and EC01 SST40 doesn’t show well, i would say the EA01 has around 2x the Kcd

Awesome, thanks for those beamshots ! Defintely helpful! Now is that only the ea01 sst40? You didn’t have the xhp50 in there?

No unfortunatly i don’t have one, i though that the XHP would defeat the purpose of the throwy TIR.

20350’s or 26350’s?

I’d like to get some 20350’s (for Amutorch E3S), but Vapcell doesn’t seem to have 20350’s when I last checked..

(I notice Vapcell has 26350, but rated at 6 Amp max only)

My ordered EA01 is also in transit, hopefully can expect it later this week..

So it has Anduril firmware version 2019-12-05? This would be the same firmware version as in the Astrolux FT02S.

I’m just curious why Mateminco didn’t install the latest Anduril version (for most models), which is 2020-03-18
(there are some later Anduril 1 firmware versions, but for specific models; from Toykeeper’s compiled firmware repository (.hex files), I think most models have the 2020-03-18 as latest version (unless it’s a certain newer model)…

IMALENT MRB-263P20 26350 is too long.

JamesB, thanks for the excellent beamshots! It seems that the SST40 TIR version still has some usable spill, as that LED is not one of the smallest ones, normally used in throwers. Do you think it would fare well as flashlight for outdoor activities, with preference for overall tight beam?

I love the EA01, but from a strictly utilitarian purpose i’m not sure where it fits, the beam profile is not great indoors nor for walking due to the relative lack of spill and the throw is better than the EC01 but not extraordinary due to the choice of LED, i’d like to see it with a small die osram, would probably make it the pocket thrower that it isn’t quite yet.

Allright, there is still the quad SST20 4000K version on my radar, which could still pack a punch, but with little extra spill.

I looked around for unprotected 26350 batteries a couple of months ago for a Fitorch P25. The best one I could find is the generic blue one that is widely available and rated at 6A (some sellers claim 10A). The Vapecell 26350 appears to be the same battery.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

Ooops, type. 26350. I got 2x flat and 2x BT from Vapcell. Arrived today. Seems the flat top are raised enough to touch in series so BT unnecessary. Will be testing stumpy L6 later.

EA01 has been with courier for 48 hours – not sure what they doing, need it here now! Smile

Interesting that they mention not to use 21700 cell as it might damage the light… Also the SST20 version is not listed there, but thanks anyway. Perhaps we just have to wait a little more Beer

I received the EA01 today. The 5000K SST-40 version. I measure 1925 lumen on a 26650 battery at 30 seconds so the led is driven well.

I like the beam from this TIR: good size hotspot (so no extreme throw) and dimmer and narrower spill than a reflector light of the same size. So it illuminates well what you point it at and not the grass at your feet, I call that useful Smile

Not sure if this discussed: is the driver a FET+1 design? Or what else is it?

You are right, it is FET+1

yes that’s strange because the FT03 runs on a 21700 battery and only has one emitter

I also just received the EA01 several hours ago. (I got 1 unit EA01 with SST40 5000k and another EA01 with XHP50.2 5700k).

I’m not able to directly measure lumens, but I checked the tailcap current when using an iJoy 4200mAh 26650 (charged to around 4.1v, so nearly full charged)
On the EA01 SST40 5000k, I measured 7.8 Amps tailcap current (UT210E), although this may still not be max power, since it’s not yet fully-charged battery.

However, when I set the EA01 with SST40 to Turbo, I notice the beam turns a bit bluish (from the slightly pinkish color when at Ramp Ceiling level). So this seems to mean the LED is driven a bit too high?

On the EA01 with XHP50.2 set to Turbo, the light works OK.

~~~~~

I’m guessing it’s a FET+1, since on battery-insert, the measured current is around 0.35A (NoPWM),
when I set to Stepped Mode, there is ‘fast PWM’ on all the default 7 brightness levels of Stepped Ramping
Again, also NoPWM when on Turbo mode. So this seems to match behavior of FET+1… (I’m not that well-versed in electronics, but I try to measure tailcap currents of flashlights when I’m first testing each of them)

Thank you Bombay! I am very glad to see it is quad sst40 and xhp50.

Freeme- are there any coupon codes for the MT04 on BG?

Thank you!
