The MTN 15mm driver is not a boost driver, so it doesn’t work with an AA cell.

Crescendo generally uses ~16 kHz PWM, but it depends on what hardware it’s running on and how it was built.

is there a way to make an AA Tool run a Ramping UI on Eneloop?
Similar to Nitecore D10.

else, the basic modes on the AA Tool will suffice to gift to a muggle.

Hum, I am note sure it that already exists Jon!
I believe it is a little bit like the Anduril for the Sofirn SP10S project (to be run on AAs and 14500s): it is still being “searched” the ideal formula to make those more “advanced” UIs on alkalines! Tired

BTW, the light in which I have Crescendo currently is the On The Road i3 zoomie flashlight.

thanks for your thoughts

well.. I just wont tell the AA alkleak using muggles, about the D10 ramping UI..

The CuTool AA is intended as a gift to an electrician friend. Now that it has a good beam with sw45k, they can just learn the clicky UI, with memory..

close enough for Government work, as we say on this side of the great water

enjoy your LiIon UIs Smile

Final rendition of worded operation (confirmed):

.
Basic operation:

(tap = half press)

.
From OFF:
(memory off) 1 full click = on at moon level and begins ramping
(memory on) 1 full click = on at memorized level and remains steady
1 full click then Single tap = Moon
1 full click then double tap = Turbo
1 full click then triple tap = Strobe / Batt check / Special modes

.
From ON (while ramping):
Single tap = pause ramping (steady on at the level when tapped)
1 full click = OFF

.
From ON (after pause ramping):
Single tap = resume ramping UP
Double tap = resume ramping DOWN
Triple tap = Turbo
Quad tap = Strobe / Batt check / Special modes
1 full click = OFF

.
From Moon:
Single tap = begin ramping
Triple tap = Turbo
1 full click = OFF

.
From Turbo:
Single tap = back to steady on at previous level
1 full click = OFF

Thank you for making this chart, now I understand Crescendo.

Thank you very much.

Keep in mind that Crescendo running on an attiny13a does not have memory; not enough space on the chip for all the code. The code written for an attiny25 has memory available.
