Done.

One thing, I chose AA only, not because it is cheap or because I do not want 14500 compatibility, but because that makes it possible to make a nice current controlled modes driver. Drivers that are (also) 14500 compatible (with modes still working)  always have PWM controlled modes.

(with the only little understanding that I have of drivers).

I noticed near the bottom under misc options you have “square threads” listed twice.

Done. One thing extra I mentioned is that it would be sweet to have this:

tighten the head to go to turbo,
loose the head for moon,
then no memory needed, and we can have moon or turbo. Just like what fenix LD20 has.

Thanks for the nice form, MK! We sure can use this for lots of things in the future.

I think I prefer electronic sideswitches. They allow more sophisticated UIs. Something like:

Click and hold from off: moonlight
Short press from off: turn-on in last mode used
Click and hold from on: cycle modes up
Click and hold from on again after previosly cycling modes up: cycle modes down.
Double-click (from on or off): shortcut to max power
Single click from on after light has been on at least 3/4 of a second: turn off

Thanks for pointing out Big Smile I’m new to this stuff. I don’t know if it will affect something. So, I’ll leave it Silly

“Purdy colors (ano.)”

pretty colors (anodization) aka. anything other than normal black or grey.

better than my form, thanks.

The options create a selection bias making the results largely useless, but nice try.

Thanks for your insight. I wish to point out I have no statistics background or ‘bias free’ form creation skills. I used responses already put forward by people and added some stuffs I think people might be interested in.
If it is slightly useful, then it served its goal. Else, all good its the intention that counts Big Smile

I’m done.

And why don’t you consider Nichia NVSL219B-V1 high CRI and high output?

75 replies so far. Thanks guys. While making the form I was not only dead tired (really) but ill. To be honest I tried so hard to remember that high CRI emitter called ‘nichia’ but could only manage luxeon :S I thus added an “other” option.

Nichia and high output seems like not realistic or with crap runtimes from all the posts I’ve read here and there. I could be wrong though. You could add it in the last open ended question though.

Already put Nichia on other option, although XP-L may be interesting too.
Unless need to drive it very high, newer Nichia’s output is good enough based on djozz’s test.

An AA flashlight has to be small enough to clearly differentiate it from a really small 18650 flashlight. And have much better modes, output and runtimes than an AAA flashlight. Keychainable...

Really? What about Olight S15?

Looks like we need to add cheese and bacon with a “proud switch” and Uranusfire branding to the flashlight!
