convoy s5 problem with mode memory

i just got a convoy s5 from banggood, i remember read it somewhere on the forum and the reviewer said that there are mode memory, but my s5 always start with the next level it was previously on, from l-m-h-strobe-sos, which is very annoying, i need this light for work, and i always need it at medium, is there a way to fix this? if i can’t do the mode memory, i want it at least to always start on LOW.

i just openned the head of the s5 to look i dont know what i did, but now the Strobe and SOS are gone, just L-M-H now, what’s going on? this is good because i hate strobe and sos, but the light still start on the next level.

If you have the Nanjg 105c (and I believe the same for the Nanjg AK-47A as well) there are two distinct modes

1 being low, mid, high

2 being low, mid, high, strobe, sos

Change modes by going to low, waiting approx 2 seconds, light will blink/flicker, then quickly 1/2 press (not a click but how you switch modes without clicking), this toggles from one mode to the next

for memory to take effect, you have to be in that particular power level for approx 2 seconds (for it to write to memory) when you click to turn off, next time you click on, it will start in the same mode you turned it off

Mr. Warhawk, thank you very much, i finally got it to work, ok just a curiosity question, how can i get the modes back to L-M-H-Strobe-SOS? then back to L-M-H?

Yep, gotta wait longer in each mode. For me, it was like 4 to 6 seconds to memorize the mode. That’s why I love my Yezl Y3—always in the mode I had it in!

same way, go to low, wait approx 2 seconds, blink/flicker, then 1/2 click bump...toggle back and forth between the groups

The low mode and subsequent blink/flicker is the "switch group", it won't blink/flicker in any other mode and if you don't quickly 1/2 click bump immediately after the blink/flicker it wont toggle over [yeah the blink/flicker is annoying in low mode but that is the programming]

Only way to know what driver you have is either it has it on the PCB itself or you have to identify it by that chips are on the board...to me it sounds like a standard Nanjg 105C (rev 2) [they have 2 revisions I believe, one has two modes, starting from high down, the other starting from low up...but both have two distinct groups, one with flashys the other without]
