WOW, what an entry!!! Welcome to BLF Party
First, enjoy the forum.

Then, some questions: are you a manufacturer? Can you post some beamshot images of the flashlight, please?

I went to the site (http://www.ff-light.com/index.php?route=common/home) and only saw the flashlight’s pictures, no beams! It would be pleasant to get some Innocent

That is not a bad firmware, but I was hoping to find out things like: is this light using a combination of linear regulators and a field effect transistor (common 7135+FET drivers) or if perhaps the battery carrier puts the cells in series so as to use a buck driver, or maybe the cells are in parallel but the leds are in series and a boost driver is used. I worry that a FET would not be good for the 219b version.

I suppose once the sample reviews come out I will find out either way.

The battery carrier is in parallel, that is easy to see as the springs are all in the same direction.

And it is probably using a 7135+16×7135+FET driver.

The springs are a good indicator, but not absolute, which is why I asked. Yeah, that seems likely but I sure don’t like the idea of FET and 219b, even when it’s 3:1. Seems likely that a bit too little resistance could be an issue.

Looks great!

Any chance of there being a 4000K or 4500K neutral white XPL HI version?

Wow I havent seen anything that got me this excited in a long while! Is it really 219b 9080? Becaise from my understanding Nichia discontinued them a long while ago. Only Virence.com sells them but with very limited quantities left. If it is really 9080, I will definitely buy one or maybe two if performance is good. Thanks and really looking forward to learn more about this light

I’m super excited as well. Never would have thought a brand out of nowhere coming out with such a tint snob friendly light! And a perfect 3×18650 form factor as well.

I like the light a lot. The only thing I would like even more is a tailcap of the same color as the body.
I hope it’s a parallel setup. Price is a bit high for me, hope to see a group buy – or, even better, a modding host with empty MCPCB and without driver.

Manker released an anniversary model not too long ago. Not only was this model offered in a very similar champagne colour, it is also machined from 7075 aluminium which is very rarely used for flashlights. Therefore I wondered whether there was a relation, like the same manufacturer for example.
