WWEFANS, does this light use PWM? They’re beautiful!

High frequency PWM is used on low & mid, not visible to the naked eye. The camera won’t capture the PWM unless you photograph the emitter directly in very close range, which you force the camera use very high speed shutter.

How high speed is very high speed?

I mean to said higher shutter speed. I don’t know the rational number of shutter speed. I can capture PWM on low mode at ExposureTime 1/24000. mid mode PWM at ExposureTime 1/66665.

My Copper Pineapple has decided to eject its o-ring (between the lens and the head). Does anyone know a source for replacement or dimensions of the o-ring? I did get a couple spares with the light, but they were both the smaller ones for the head-body interface.

Thanks

Just picked one up from Amazon. Came with a v2 sticker on the box.

It’s absolutely gorgeous, but the twist UI is so finicky I’m finding it unusable. I have to untwist more than 1/2 turn to turn off, or else pressing the two halves together turns on the light (i.e. pressure in my pocket). This also means as I twist to turn it on, it often flashes and then ‘skips’ to the next mode because it momentarily activated and turned off while I was twisting it to turn on. I tried tightening down the driver as mentioned in a few places. My first attempt caused the front o ring to pop out, so I backed the driver out, lined everything back up and tightened it a little less than that. Didn’t seem to fix it for me. I have had the front o ring pop out a few times since then just from twisting the flashlight all the way ‘on’ until it stops.

Unfortunately I think it’s going back to Amazon. There really isn’t another AAA that I can find that looks this nice, but it has to work right.

Sorry to hear.
