Uses Fira Code on his Hugo-generated blog.

“I’m a Software Developer in Melbourne, Australia.”

Never woulda guessed./s

But seriously, nice job.

There is a mistake in the table with lumens and current – the mode H4 with 130lm and 1.21A. 130lm should be something around 350mA.

there is a bug with version 202202080614 that the TS10 shipped with where LVP does not work when aux LEDs are on.

true for ALL anduril lights with single color aux or button LEDs
the TS10 was just the first light to UnCover that bug (by making the High Aux too bright.. I recommend Not using High Aux), and gchart has fixed it already. The new Hex file also gives a 10x lower Low, which I Love!

Turbo 145 lm at 30 seconds … I left the thermal limit as the default.

this drop to about 10% of Turbo, is why I think Turbo is only for Marketing.

fwiw, raising the Thermal Limit to 50C, increases the Sustainable Output to about 300 lumens.. Much more practical.

I really like the TS10.. with a pocket clip change. fwiw, Olight clips fit, so does the Lumintop E05C clip.

Im using an Olight S Mini clip atm:

Current measurements except turbo are difficult. High currents depend on the resistance of the whole system (wires, contacts, battery) and low currents need a good multimeter with good averaging or you have to use an oscilloscope (due to the PWM of the driver). Also the ramp shape has changed with my new ramping table that is hopefully shipped eventually. That means steps will be different to the previous firmware version.

Thanks for the review, btw. Smile

Nice review. I agree with your conclusions. One of mine has been in my pocket since I got them.
Good thoughts above on the clip. Mine has actually fallen out of my pocket with the stock clip … when sitting down.

Thanks! I made a mistake. I had used measurements that I noted down from a UT139C in series rather than the UT210E. I updated the table with results from the UT210E clamp meter and H4 is closer to 503mA.

Thanks for the suggestions! I’ll see if some clips are available during the next Olight sale.

Now I need to update the firmware. E21A LED swap is tempting but I like the tint as is with the 4000K emitters.

What happened to your reddit comments on my review?. You had an essay length comment talking about how I only cared about high lumens, not sustainable ones without ever watching a single review of mine.

Just a strange comment to drop out of nowhere.
