many thanks for your very detailed reply, tk, i am familiar with the calibration procedure Smile

Cheers ToyKeeper I clicked 50 times for 50c and not 20!


50C was the temperature you set the current temp, or (30C + N) 80C for the regulation temp? Either seems a bit odd . . .

gotcha. I was thinking the max was 70C, but that is probably a different firmware build.

In Neal’s deals for the D4S (seems to be nearly similar price as directly Hank’s but with a few inclusion), it mentions some models have blue/cyan aux leds while others have green aux leds..

I used my copper Sinner with the enlarged copper head and 33mm Quad Noctigon with Samsung LH351D emitters last night and the hot spot is pretty large, out in the open the “throw” is not very impressive at all. I knew that going in of course, so I carried a thrower with me on the walk down to the road. I hadn’t realized just how warm my 5000K 80CRI Samsungs are until last night out in the open, the color or tint is almost warmer than I care for, especially compared to my Nitecore headlamp I was wearing. Still, all in all I like the light for it’s power and clarity….

Had been planning to put the Samsung’s in my D4S when it gets here (tomorrow supposedly) but now I’m not so sure about that…

Hmm I may have to order another. “Shakey Hands” McGee here, means no trying to flow emitters for a few more weeks. Now if we could find a different color for the locator leds (would love to see a red or orange possibly purple).

I am also told that on the D4S the Angie Optic is glued to the 33mm Noctigon board and the legs will break trying to remove it. So it may be wise to have a replacement optic on hand before attempting to change emitters… Wink

So did you break yours or are you still waiting for it to be delivered so you can verify that?

Richard is the one that told me how difficult they are to modify. (Mountain Electronics) If anyone should know, he’s the man! Wink

Unless you’re talking about something else, the optic in my D4S wasn’t glued down at all.

I want a cool white light about as much as I want Cool Ranch Soda.

That’s very interesting Herb, Richard told me they’re glued… solidly. I wonder if there is some variation on how these are assembled, like maybe some of the workers use different methods? Did you get yours from Richard or directly from Hank at Intl-Outdoor?

I will see tomorrow on the green one I ordered from Richard, should be here in the mail…

I ordered mine from Intl-Outdoor. Richard might have gotten a different production run or something where they are glued in, I don’t know. Mine literally fell out when I took the bezel/lens off and turned the light over.

One strange behavior I noticed. When I set mine for stepped ramp with 10 levels and exclude the turbo with 5 clicks in the ceiling ramp config, the light cycles immediately from top to bottom mode and doesn’t stop at the top. I feel it would be more consistent for it to stop at the max just like with turbo on the unlimited ramp.

However, if I click 10 times to limit the ceiling it does this, but the max step is much closer to turbo than with 5 clicks. Works well with 20 clicks as well with the ramp max being at a more suitable level.

Also it would be handy if you could exclude the turbo from the stepped ramp max by just one click. So the ramp config would be aware that you’re in the stepped ramp mode and adapt to the currently selected mode count.
