Congratulations pilotdog68 and zipelgas Beer

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Oh boy, oh boy Party Party Party
First time I have won something!
Head is racing.. What to build, what configuration? This needs a special light. I’m thinking sleeper

Overkill is just about enough!

Can you do a side-by-side table comparing the 1, 2, and 3?
Because, uh, I still have a 1 and a 2 unused. I must have been greedy, overreaching … oh yeah, it was shipping quantity made me overbuy …

It’d help to figure out which version is appropriate for which use, or not.

Or, hey, people collect antique flashlights; does anybody collect antique drivers?
Besides me, I mean?

IIRC, it’s about like this:
  • LD-1 Hardware = good ……… Firmware = good
  • LD-2 Hardware = better …….. Firmware = same?
  • LD-3 Hardware = tweaked ….. Firmware = better

The hardware was significantly improved from 1 -> 2 and the firmware was significantly improved from
2 -> 3, but LD-3 lost the use of e-switch that both 1 and 2 had. IMHO, LD-1 would be good for a giveaway/sale light, since it offers nothing that isn’t at least as good, or improved in later models. For your own lights, use LD-2 for e-switch and LD-3 for clicky. Hopefully I’m remembering all of this correctly. Blushing

Congratulations guys! Cool

My gratitude to those who are willing and able to help others (in whatever way you can)! Being human is more than just existing for yourself. Smile

That’s a good summary DavidEF Wink
There are many things/features to compare, I would add most important ones:
-internal resistance LD-1 low, LD-2,LD-3 very low (DD-like)
-multicell(2S-4S) support LD-1 – no, LD-2 LD-3 – yes
-external overtemp. protection (with sensor) – LD-1 – no,LD-2, LD-3 – yes
-dual switch support LD-1,LD-2 – yes, LD-3 – no(for now)
- configurable settings/UI – LD-1,LD-2 – no, LD-3 – yes
