EDIT: Nah, it’s not that serious but it’s noticable

Does anyone have beamshots from GT-FC40 3000k and 4000k?

I’m ordering M21B and driver for my 4000k one, but it would be only few €‘s more to get ready to use model with led installed so maybe getting that 3000k one.

3000K is really nice. I have put 4000K and 3000K ones in S21A/B’s. You can find my beamshots of both emitters in what did you mod today thread.

Hi I’m trying to order a TIR reflector for my s2+ 219b (in the mail) and I’m a bit confused. I’m looking to achieve a nice even floody beam profile.

What size footprint should it be? (3535, 5050?)
Which angle should I choose? (85, 60, 45…..?)
What kind of surface finish? (matte, bead, strip, clear?)

Thanks in advance for your help.

85degree 3535


Wouldn’t be great for H1 and 219b?

No suitable lens for H1 currently

My 219B S2+ 4500k just came in today. The LED is pretty nice.

The description for the 219B S2+ seems to be wrong. It’s the regular Biscotti, which requires 10 taps to go into config mode, not 20 taps.

And doesn’t work properly with the lighted switch. With the lighted switch installed, the light just stays in one mode and refuses to switch modes.

Sorry, I found that the old 7135*8 driver is still installed in some flashlights. Please PM me and tell me your address, and I will send you the new driver

Simon,


would it be possible to make Ramping driver but 6V/3-4A? 
That could be solution for everybody that want specific output. Since it’s already avialable in 3V…

20mm or 22mm?

The main reason I have not used ramping mode extensively is that it is more suitable for forward switch. But currently most of my flashlights use reverse switches, I don’t know if many users will mind it.

And I never used ramping driver...

I am using all kind of FW's: Bistro, H17Fx, Dragon, Crescendo, Guppy's and they all fit the reverse switch. The thing is in the operator, not the driver

Hi,

I don’t know how to solder, and don’t have the tools too. The old driver is OK on the first S2+ sw45k which was received.

Will let you know once the 2nd one arrives if it still has old driver. I ordered the lighted switch with 2nd light and was expecting it to work.

Liking that 4000-4500k way more vs. 3000k. Thanks.

With standard switch (without lighting) the old driver works well. Change the switch it’s very easy, only need a tweezers.

I get Olight feels about that. Nice swirl.

Could it be possible to get that with GT-FC40 and OP reflector?

i see the driver area (around the button and charging port) is the same as astrolux FT03 or Mateminco.

Impulsive as I am I just ordered one black/5000K. The stud instead of a spring with the short tail spring may cause some crushing on longer cells. I know driver area is limited and this method gives a little extra. Tail spring needs to reflect this as a bit longer. I have three other lights that have crushed the tops of cells. Haikelite HK4S was so bad I had to grind down the stud 4 mm’s just for unprotected cells.

The 4000k in the S11 is so darn nice. It really does compare very well to the 219B sw-4500k. My S11 seems to be a bit more rosy than the one shown above… But, that could just be the recording.

EDC rotation:
FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k

Pioneman K45-C… Smile

I like the Pioneman K35 design. There are using Convoy drivers. Are we expecting a similar Pioneman K35 host with Convoy Name S**???

Hmmm… Pioneman related to Convoy?

So are there any differences between the reflector in the M21C/D to the M21E?

Probably, the E looks like a C8 size head,44-45mm while c and d are 55mm

I hope it is a floodier/wider angle reflector than the one in the M21C, but we will have to see.
