I was actually about to comment on that Lazy-R-us. So what is happening is that via ramping down the lowest level is ALWAYS the “default” level. The only way to get to the user specified level 1-7 is to hold from off and it turns on in that mode, then you let go immediately. Also something that bugged me.. I set the moonlight level to 7 because I dislike moonlight and always ramp up for a moment before using my lights, but if you long press to get my default value of 7, then keep holding in, the ramping dips back down to the default of 3 before ramping up. Essentially ramping doesn’t reference the user specified moonlight level as where to start ramping and always starts at 3.

The screw issues barely bother me, but I’m glad Thorfire is working expediently to get things shipping out again. There is light glue on the tail cap spring board but it wasn’t like a loctite, just kind of sticky. It was also between the board and where it contacts the body tube. I cleaned it off on mine, but it wasn’t an issue, just something I noticed while being nosy. All of my screws are in good shape.

I was expecting this light to get hot, but even after 8 minutes of turbo it’s barely breaking a sweat. I really like that, turbo is a practical mode.

So with 2 LEDs in parallel, the risk over time down the line would be if one of them dies or its connection fails, all the current goes through the other one and fries that one?

No, there shouldn't be a danger of either one burning out.  The current is just too tiny for that to happen.  The issue is that one or both just won't work (or will work intermittently).   The rest of the Q8 should be perfectly functional.

Yep, a little of both. Not sure why I didn't change/fix that before the release - I thought I found this early on and knew bout it. It might have been too late, not sure. So, if you set moon mode, only way to access it is press&hold from OFF. Can't ramp down to it. Not sure where now, but I know I fixed this - might be in the next version, might be in the D4 version maybe, not sure - I know I had ramping work to go down to moon mode at some point..

It kind of got orphaned - can't ramp down to it, can't save it as the "remembered" level, but, if you start ramping from OFF, it's always there first thing,and ramping pauses on moon mode so you can catch it easier.

DOA, dead on arrival.
Sorry, should have quoted but didn’t want to single out any particular member, doesn’t really matter, just having people comparing their 3rd light received not working properly while others have none, though ordered and paid for on the same day just pours salt in the wound.
These codes could have been handed out in an orderly manner and/or limits on purchases made.
If you need the post # it is 13250, again nothing against that member.

Do you mean the LED stays on too long?

I’m not sure how people use beacon modes. I’ve seen them with an on-time anywhere between 1ms and 1000ms, and an off-time of anywhere from 1s to 10s. Brightness has been anything from moon to turbo. What kind of beacon is ideal?

On my most recent beacon I took a guess and made the on-time 500ms, with brightness and off-time both configurable. But I don’t know if that’s what people consider good.

TK, I use the beacon on the H17F on the lowest output setting for night stand duty. Only on lights without trits. I love the beacon mode on it!

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

Replaced the resistor on the faulty switch board with 10K and the LED is working fine at 0.155 mA. I’m thinking that for some combinations of high Vf LED’s and high-side of tolerance resistors it’s just not giving enough voltage to be stable.

I ordered 3 x Q8“s within minutes of the code being released & all 3 in the first 200 orders Smile
1 was to a delivery address in the USA & 2 to my address in the UK.
The USA one arrived yesterday & appears to be fine Thumbs Up
My 2 however have been showing this tracking information for the last 10 days “2017-09-11 03:33
Arrived In Hongkong, Waiting To Fly Away”
I am just wondering (I guess I know the answer) if my 2 will “fly away” to me as they are or is there any chance that Thorfire can/will recall them to fix the lighted switch issue then re-ship them ?
I guess as they are in Hong Kong, according to the tracking information, that they will just continue on to me eventually as they are ?

Waited a year + for squat. On a list that means squat.
And What happened to the order list near the top of the OP?? Pffffffff, vanished. Funny how that happens.
Disgusted.
Just to be clear it was the 2nd light “I” ordered, the 3rd one was a gift to me from someone. That was covered HERE

Nor did I post to brag about receiving Q8’s… I posted because we were asked to.

I have not ordered all I am on the list for ‘yet’. I did order the three I am giving away, (as many others are).
I have not ordered one for myself yet… as I knew I was being gifted one.
I will however order it before the coupon code expires.

I understand you are upset & I am sorry…. but I had no control over how anything was done or handled. Nor the rest of the things you mention either.

Hopefully things will progress quickly.

Same here. I got the message “Waiting to fly away” a few days after the “shipped” message, far before any light reached its destination and the switch led issue became known. Same message up to now.
I dug further into this and realized the site “dpdgroup.hk” (where 17track and other tracking sites get the information about this carriers tracking) has moved to a “domain parking” service about a week ago. For a while 17track displayed a notice telling their tracking information is only a cached one. This notice is currently not displayed but since “dpdgroup.hk” is still not in order I’m pretty sure the tracking information is still the cached one.

I can’t track my ordered lights anywhere else – neither international nor local – and am curious if they are still on there way to my place – or lost.

It’s been many years since I did this, but I have had luck in the past using two irons – one in each hand, with the tips on each pad. Use the tips of the irons like tweezers or pliers by pushing them each towards the other and lift the part off the board.

If you do it that way you run a big risk of overheating the led and ruining it. If your not going to reuse it, then that technique is fine. You could also probably lay the iron tip along side the led to heat up both pads at the same time.

I’ve been playing with the UI and have a question since you asked JasonWW.

I am back in ramping mode, and have configured Moon mode for the lowest level.
Click and hold starts the light from a low and ramps up – as expected.
Ramping it back down, I get a switch blink at a fairly low level. – as expected.
I can select a level, turn the light off and with a single click I get the remembered mode. – as expected.
However – from off, with a medium click – I get this crazy dim moonlight level (I like it – it just does not seem to be in the cheat sheet or the doc on post 2.) This seems to be the only way to get into this level. I can’t ramp to it at all.

I’m just wondering if this is a know feature or an easter egg?


It’s a known feature. I remember Miller or Tom E talking about it. I left my moonlight level at the stock 3 as it’s fine to me.

I just checked and I can just barely see the difference. I never really noticed before.

Same here … ordered two Q8s after receiving the code within 5 minutes, both are shipped with “DPD Hong Kong”, one of them still has the “Hong Kong airport: Waiting to fly away” message, ONE of them definitely arrived in Germany at the local DPD depot, BUT now this:

Q8 #2

Sigh ………

  • DOA = Dead On Arrival

Besides the detail above (and everything associated with it powering up) , all looks good. Smile
It is the same as the report of Q8 #1 , besides arrival time & power relate details.

  • Arrival time was today, 9-20-2017
  • No power related details to report

I will try to find the problem later… When I have time to get to it.

Do you mean the flashlight is doa or the switch lights are not working?

If the flashlight is doa, then that is the first reported one. They are supposed to check all flashlights at thorfire to be working or not.

Please clarify.

Thanks

Sure, clarification is below.

DOA

OK, clarification as requested.
Q8, in it’s entirety; was DOA. Nothing, nada, zip….. Smile


Okay, I guess that is the first reported non working Q8. I’m sure the Miller will contact you about it.

Then you don’t own a MH20.

Grooves of the tailcap misaligned, flat parts of the tube misaligned.

Cutting the threads and milling the flat parts or grooves are most probably done at two different steps of the manufacturing process. To have head + tube + tailcap aligned you should have to align those parts always exactly the same way before every machining steps. A custom-maker could do so but not mass-producing manufacturers. Not the same cost at the end, well I guess because I’m not a machinist.

Wow lots of new posts, sorry morning routine is emails first, then PMs and then rest of BLF, of course starting with Q8.

Some reactions
Yes it is unfortunate that the only part not specified and was given as nice bonus is causing issues. Yes with 2000 ready to be made going for a problem free seemed more logical
I would feel like sh#tting on BLF if we would not fo it this way and it is unfortunate people feel sh#tted on by doing what I think is right.
As written, we accepted slow response during the process but not now and we don’t even have to pull for answers, Thorfire is very much on top of it.
There is a shipping date mentioned on the pre order page and it does not look like it will not be met, we thought it would be send out sooner then this came..

Then the list, I have it, while editing it into another post to make the OP easier to read, the tab I had that post open in crashed, I didn’t notice it and had already copied something else in memory. Lucky me, Mr.Scott and SB have backups so I received it from Mr.Scott by mail. Will edit it in later and don’t worry, now have backups of all important topic start posts.

Did I read words describing waiting or dealing with issues as suffering? Come on, half the alphabet worth of hurricanes smashed islands and coastal regions
A Mexican school has a list of kids SURVIVING the collapse of the building , not the deceased, after a 7 minutes earthquake hit a monster city.
That is suffering!

Teacher, you have a DOA, will add you to the OP.
DO NOT OPEN IT, DO NOT TRY TO FIX IT, SEND IT TO TOM, he will send you a good one. I take care of shipping both lights.
Tom will examine it and see what is up with that, he is highly skilled and we know we can trust him for being open about issues.
PM incoming.

Nice fix. That’s much better than the 6mA drain you had earlier. It’s barely more than stock.

I meant nothing negative about the springs, like batteries not fitting, too tight or too loose. That kind of thing.

BTW, has anyone tried protected cells to see if they fit?

PLEASE do not ail Banggood, you will be “helped” by the normal customer support. a stressful experience that will only bring frustration and only solid thing that will come from it about shipping is, “please wait two more weeks and contact your local post office” you know this now, so don’t bother yourself or them Smile

Sorry to contradict. But demanding extra money for trackable and fast delivery and not fulfilling the paid service is not ok. It’s also a bad idea to use Hermes for local delivery since they currently need an extra week for delivery in my place. If I (and others) don’t tell Banggood they don’t know where to improve.

OP updated with:
teacher DOA, solution, DO NOT OPEN OR TRY TO FIX, swap with a good Q8 of Tom, so Tom can investigate and report back in depth. Tom is a true “professional guy” Wink

Flashy Mike, in the case of the Q8 t is best to let us collect all questions so we can give it to people at Banggood who are at a level that something is actually can be done with it. Using the normal customer support is just one ticket that gets answered by a non caring person and that is it. Add a Question for Banggoog, I will put it in OP so others can see it is on the to be reported list and we will make sure it gets to management level of people who do care.
Up to you of course, spend a minute and make 1 post and know it reaches somebody who can and most likely will do something with it stress and frustration 0-1%, or start a tedious customer support communication taking a lot of time and knowing the chances of it being really cared about being zero to none and chances of frustration are close to 100% Wink

I have a 4 times experience with the Priority mail shipping option of BG,and it is very good.Also,I pay for insurance whenever it is offered.So far,there is not any item lost,although I see that a parcel with 4pcs of 30Qs is delayed and unknown from 08/30,ordered at 08/23 by Priority mail.

Both of mine arrived today; they were ordered within minutes of each other the first day they went on sale.


One is perfect so far.  The other has a couple issues we’ve seen, and (I believe) a bran-fresh one (lucky me Wink ).


 

The second issue can be seen in this picture.  There’s an obvious flaw in the tube/anodizing.  This came out of an absolutely unscathed box, so I don’t believe it occurred in shipping:



 


Here’s a close up; not sure what caused it tbh but it’s not a simple dent.


 



 


Interestingly, the light with the flaws pictured above also has a battery tube that’s not correctly aligned with the head when fully tight.


 


 

Almost forgot to react to this.
Alignment is hard, a reason we go for a single long tube for the GT.
That ding, auch, looks like a worker dropped it before packaging on a sharp metal table edge or something.
No other dings and scratches? Glass clean?

I’ve been playing with the UI and have a question since you asked JasonWW.

I am back in ramping mode, and have configured Moon mode for the lowest level.
Click and hold starts the light from a low and ramps up – as expected.
Ramping it back down, I get a switch blink at a fairly low level. – as expected.
I can select a level, turn the light off and with a single click I get the remembered mode. – as expected.
However – from off, with a medium click – I get this crazy dim moonlight level (I like it – it just does not seem to be in the cheat sheet or the doc on post 2.) This seems to be the only way to get into this level. I can’t ramp to it at all.
I’m just wondering if this is a know feature or an easter egg?

In this version of Narsil the moon setting does not configure the ramp floor. It basically treats moon as a separate mode from the rest of the ramp.

So, you can configure the brightness of long-press-from-off, but it does not have a way to make the ramp start at a higher or lower level.

For the record … received my Q8 day before yesterday. Switch beacon seemed to work correctly for a few cycles and is now deceased. I hope a fix can be provided with return and repair. Thanks and good luck with the remedy.

... Happy Landings ...
