What is upgraded in U11 “upgraded version” ?

Where do you see this mentioned? Never mind, I found it. I don’t see any difference either. You would think they would mention what is improved on it.

After some searching I found reference to “Manker upgraded driver, UI, switch…”

The UI has definitely changed, Turbo has moved to the blinky mode group. And it no longer allows you to choose 1,2,3 for each level. Can only configure moonlight level.
OLD:

NEW:

As for driver and switch upgrade, I can find no extra details. But indeed there were many reports of unreliability in 2016 so perhaps the changes were warranted ?

The ‘upgraded version’ is not actually new, it appeared in 2018 best I can tell from wayback.

I received my CW E03H that was 1/2 price on clearance from Manker and it has the new mode sequence listed above – same a the Folomov “wave” mode sequence, which I don’t like.

I prefer the sequence to go to low from turbo, rather than going to high from turbo.

The headband can’t hold the light stable – the light bounces when I walk.

The diffuser does glare down into my eyes and glasses – might be reduced by applying black marker to the bottom edge.

I like the beam pattern.

The CRI appears to be adequate for EDC use.

It seems heavier than a AA headlamp needs to be, but it might survive being ran over by a tank.

Mine goes to moonlight after cycling out of the turbo group. Or if double pressing into and out of turbo, it goes to whatever mode it was on before.

Agreed, the diffuser, whether engaged or not, can shine some light into the eyes especially when on the headband, if the light is pointing low enough.

Mine, also, but it goes to medium from high, rather than going to ml or l. ml-l-m-h-m-l-ml.

Yes, mine too in the normal mode group. But you mentioned turbo which is in another group and that behavior is different.

Yes, I erred in my first post.

I received my E02 and E03. Both seems OK.
E02 came in retail package, E03 has a simple cardboard box.
The E04 clip is a trash. Diffrent than advertised and not fits to the groove well. It tends to pop out. Simply not designed to this light. I wrote the seller asking for a good one.
The E02 clip is original and fits perfectly.

That E14 needs to be at least 50% off, $69.99 for that is madness when you look at what it’s competing against.
