A Cu/Ti model with the Ti stonewash finishes that the GTnano has would make me bite. This thing needs a Cu head though for the Ti versions. It barely get’s by with Al.

NOW for the bigger question.. What about a SINGLE emitter version? Pretty please?

Indeed, a stonewashed ti version with copper shelf would be sweet Love

The 219C 3000k, 219C 4000k, 219C 5000k and SST20-4000k are FWAA,
the other LEDs are from other flashlight models…

Hopefully my Nichia 4000k is decent. I have one nice tinted 219c 4000k and one that was super yellow and I couldn’t wait to swap it out. The good one is in another Lumintop light, so I figured they have access to the good bins. My order from Neal still says “unfulfilled” after 9 days. Did he take that long to ship for anyone else?

I received my 3000k fwaa. What a great size. I also seem to have won the 219c tint lottery, I never before liked any 219c, always received green/yellow ones.

The tint is a bit less pink than 219b, but easily as nice as 7a xml2 and xpl-hi.
As said the beam is very floody, but that’s fine for my use.

Quick pic below.

Pure Ti is pure crap so i hope somebody listens.

TiCu is what we need AND in a single emitter version.

 

Once you apply properly thermal grease under MCPCB this thing gets dangerously hot... now imagine being cooked in pure Ti.

Sometimes it’s actually better not to put the best thermal grease on.

After all, without the best thermal grease you might get 30 seconds of turbo before it gets too hot. With better grease, may you get only 10 seconds.

Which is more useful? 30 seconds sounds good to me. Sure this means heat doesn’t get removed from the LED as efficiently, but frankly that’s usually not an issue. The LED can take a LOT more heat than my hand. As long as it doesn’t get hot enough to melt the solder on the star, I’m fine with it.

Hi, I just received fwaa 219c 4000k= definitely happy with purchase! But being my first anduril 2 torch hehe! Just wanted to clarify that ramp goes all the way to turbo?

BTW simple UI factory set for the muggles and for mass marketing, makes perfect sense to me. Thanks for looking forward TK!!

On both simple and complex UI, the default is ramp goes all the way up to turbo. However, on complex UI, you can set the top of ramp to whatever you want. Personally, I like to set it to the highest position available where an accidental pocket activation to max ramp won't burn a hole in my pocket.

In my case I set it to 50 steps below max. I can still access max turbo at any time using the shortcut from off, or the slightly cumbersome ramp to top then double-click from on. To change the ramp, I think the routine is:

  • turn on the light in complex UI mode
  • click 7 times and hold on the last click.
  • the light will blink once, then wait several seconds and blink again. Wait for the second blink. Then click however many times you want the max ramp to be below max. I click 50 times. The ramp has a maximum of 150 steps.

count me in for a brass and maybe ti, depending on price. Will there be another thread for those Freeme? Or will they just be released into the wild?

Awesome, thanks for the intel firelight2! Goin to take a little tinkerin, to get it dialed in. Think I’m gunna prefer anduril 2!

Wish I would’ve looked at provided program instructions sooner! I’ve been trying to program temp sensor for 45 min, based on standard anduril 2 UI. looks like lumintop put it after Beacon mode…

great info
do you happen to know the lumen output at level 100 and level 120?

I thought Level 120 was the default ceiling for Simple UI.. but dont know if that applies to the FWAA fork

And that is purely your opinion. If the only Ti option is a Ti/Cu combo, I wouldn’t buy it. Ti/CU lights look like crap, ugly colored crap. And it stinks.

None of my lights get used at max ramp/turbo that long so heatsinking isn’t an issue for me because they don’t heat up that much. I buy Ti lights because I like the design and the look of it. Copper mixed in kills that look. A full Ti light will always look more classy than anything with copper. It just looks cheap.

I know most will disagree and I’m fine with it.

What SST20 that is? Makes me wanna get 3000k lights. 2700k is a bit too orange for me, but 3000k seems just nice.
Also just found out that you can get those 7a’s from Convoy. Happy days are here again!

The sst-20 was from one of the first batches available on kaidomain, but I never got them as rosy again after that first batch.

Is the bundle deal still available?

BTW, I notice the only FWAA available now seems to be Nichia 219C 4000k, any idea when the XP-G3 will be available again?
