When I get the 10$ Coupon, I think I will get one Smile

On the product page, there is no word about a low battery indicator. Will it have one?

Flashlight made easy now, look at the cellphone if it has enought battery change modes Laughing

I guess 4Sevens unique product is not unique anymore.

Yes you can, and it’s just a simple tap away. But by “remote” we’re talking 10 feet max and at that distance the flashlight has to be placed within a certain “angle of attack”.

Clever stuff. It would be nice if it had a tripod mount, since it can be remotely operated. I hope the GITD button can be easily replaced – I think it looks cheap. (yes, I know it is cheap, especially with the coupon). 8)

wow.. is this where the future of flashlight is going? :bigsmile:
very unique.. but is that mean you can’t no longer swap the driver then?

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

On the product photos the beam tint looks very nice too, i love it!

When looking at a single picture. The tint can never be judged. Its a mostly a matter of white balance. A warm beam can be made to look cool, and a cool beam can be made to look warm depending on the white balance.
If you see the pictures FT have with WW emitters, they do not look WW. CW, can sometimes look neutral.
I have even seen FT pictures where WW emitters look cooler than CW emitters.

A comparison between two flashlights side by side on the same picture is the best way to get a comparison. But you can not be sure any if the colors are correct compared to what the eye see, you only see the difference. That is, unless the white balance is fixed or known and the beam is on a white wall and your monitor is properly calibrated.

Considering that the emitter is 1C, the beam should be a bit blue-ish. In my monitor, and with my eyes, I would consider the color in the beam shot to be around 5000K, which is not the case. I would describe the beam to look neutral in the middle, slight yellowish on the edge of the hotspot, and slightly cool spill.
I would expect that the light have the same characteristics, but everything would be cooler.

Its a shame FT have not managed to get this light with better XM-L2s (yet).

Very cool concept! Wish they sell the driver and it can be programmed for up to 5A to the led

Questions:

- Is the ONLY way to access the programming via Bluetooth? What I mean is, is there a UI for programming the light via the tail clicky?

- What kind of security is built into the light to prevent bluejacking? Is there anything additional to the normal PIN-type security?

im really interested in the driver alone. the lights UI is very interesting, but the host itself does not do much for me.
a few things that could have been upgraded for minimal cost were looked over. aluminum reflector and coated lens would have only added a few dollars to the final price
but the driver on the other hand. thats where its at. there must have been a lot of thought put into that driver.

i wouldnt be too worried about getting it blue jacked. they would need the software in order to do anything, and i doubt anyone is going to put in the time or effort to figure out what kind of device it is and what software is needed to do anything

Do you really think it’s needs security?? you have to been within 10 feet she says and the light has to be a certain angle, so I would think it would be nearly impossible to take over or control your light…..just saying.

It would be funny though, at a BLF meeting, if someone set everyone’s light to moonlight only. :bigsmile:
