Anduril/Anduril 2 isn’t going to happen based on current history. Simon’s driver manufacturer wants to obfuscate hardware used, and the license for Anduril won’t allow that.

For me atleast ramping and batt check is all that I need. I dont even necessarily need batt check because I can see when they run out. LOL

Even though good mode spacing is not bad like with BLF A6, but still prefer ramping.

I hope Convoy will make Anduril an option for the new and updated flashlights. Also usb-c charger for as many as possible. Most will then probably chose Anduril.

I agree , Anduril & USB-C Thumbs Up


Anduril might be popular with flashlight enthusiasts, but for many it is over complicated and confusing. Whilst I like it, I’ve had a lot of complaints from other light painting photographers who purchased FW series lights and just can’t get the grips with it, or have managed to change the config/get stuck in wrong mode. Not everyone likes ramping either, and I preferred the choice of mode groups in Narsil.

I quite like Biscotti, though would prefer a 10Hz strobe instead of the alternating frequency strobe which killed off sales of the S2+ to light painting photographers.

I like biscotti as well, but i really miss the previous mode select which the BLF A6 has.
For now we can only select next mode.

Please incorporate previous mode in biscotti

Find a different, more open minded driver manufacturer willing to work with the proper microcontrollers. It's accessible and its all what it takes!

Simon,

Do you plan on releasing multi emiter flashlight? Like M21C-U or M3 body but with 3 or 4 LEDs?

I am very happy with my M21C, it’s a great light, I really enjoy it, quality is great but right now my favourite flshlight for nights at forest is Sofirn IF25A.
It’s great little light with 4 LEDs, great cmbination of flood and throw, but quality of sofirn lights is nowhere near Convoy lights.
I would love to see something like Sofirn if25a or Olight seeker 2 pro but from Convoy.
Ofcourse with usb-c charging built in.

Cheers
Thomas

3×21A (3*21700 and 3*SST40) is in production now ,it has Type-c charging port

That sounds pretty good.

What do You think about 2×21700 flashlights like Fenix LR35R?
I think it would be great compromise between size&weight and runtime&power.
I would love to see a Convoy flashlight like this.

Cheers
Thomas

I will ask Sofirn what they think about making a HighCRI COB flashlight. The biggest challenge will be finding/developing a suitable driver. What voltage does it use, 40V? I remember VOB once built a BLF GT with a COB LED, using a 40V driver with a potentiometer.

Biscotti has last mode memory. If you turn it off on 35%, then when you turn it back on it will be on 35% which is how mode memory should work. The older S2+ 3/5 mode interface had an annoying mode memory timer, which meant it often advanced modes when you didn’t want it to.

I do not honestly know what voltage do these employ, but since they likely are 10S emitters their Vf will be somewhere between the mid 20s to high 30s V depending on current load.

To better know this and many other relevant things some CoB emitter test is required. I would likely buy some and send them to djozz (if he is willing to test them, hope he is - will ask him via p.m.) or maybe maukka, I've done stuff like this in the past too (for example I finally bought Henrik these newer higher density 26700 LiFePO4 cells for review, their test result should be up soon). However doing it just by myself gives me the creeps, mostly because my health needs to receive my scarce funds and my bank account regularly hovers in the low two figures… 

In any case, we need to attract the attention of some to decide what to test, gather whatever funds to buy the emitters, buy and send them to our reviewer.

They have all sorts of of CCTs, a few sizes and many power ratings. The categories to check, firstly Sunlight spectrum, and probably at least some test in Full Spectrum.

I was referring to the previous mode, not mode memory.
Previous mode makes it possible to enter the previous mode, which is impossible now since we can only select next mode.

Bistro UI has it by using a half press for 1 second (someone correct me if I’m wrong)

So basically i am asking for an updated Biscotti, but i’m not sure if it will be possible on the Atmel Attiny which is used, maybe the Attiny 85 only has enough resources.

There is no reason to want a COB in a flashlight, for all possible purposes a powerled makes more sense, even when pure flood is the goal. (there was a thread about it)

Yeh, my Cometa has that. Called “medium-press”, oddly enough. Dunno what “long-press” would be, then.

Thanks for paying attention, djozz.

Still, I feel curious with respect to taking a nice look at the performace and output of these.

Interestingly the LumeCube 2.0 uses a COB for a very smooth floody beam.

Asked maukka about making some sunlight spectrum CoB led review. Guess he will say something in a while.

I understand they may not break any luminous intensity record. However, with a decent sized reflector they will still be suitable for short range lighting, at the very least.

Hi Simon, I am very interested in flashlights using monochromatic light, e.g. your new C8+ using Osram's KR CSLNM1.23. Did you measure the output in lumen yet? I wonder if 2.5A is its sweet spot already or if it can safely be driven beyond 3A with signicantly more output.

For comparison:

I have bought the Amutorch New VG10 from Neal Zhang. It's fitted with Osram's Ostar Projection Compact LE Q8WP. It has 3 modes only (Low-Medium-High). For the naked eye, there's barely any difference to see between Medium and High mode. But on High mode the lights draws 5A from the battery. The head unit gets fairly hot within a few minutes.

I think there is no problem at all to increase the current to 3A. The mode of my driver sample is 30%-100%, but visually the brightness difference between the two modes is very small. I consider only providing one mode 100% or two modes 10%-100%. I don’t know about hunting. I would like to know if 10% mode is useful for hunting. Or is a 100% mode sufficient for hunting?

Personally, I would favor following forward clicky setting for a red/green light thrower.

Hold 2s from OFF: 0.01% = Firefly mode

Tap #1: 20% = Low

Tap #2: 100% = High (should ideally be stable in output, using a constant current driver)

No strobe, no SOS, no beacon

4x quick tapping: Change mode order (Low-High <> High-Low)

Yes this would be almost perfect.

100% mode is NOT sufficient for hunting. Having a LOW is important.
I wonder if there is a visible difference between 10-20-30% as Simon mentioned.

SOS: I personally find hidden RED Strobe or SOS or beacon, quite useful.
Our car always breaks down in the wrong place and using a RED flashlight blinky instead of the car blinkies preserves the car battery . Of course it could be Hidden but very useful. on the other hand WHITE strobe is annoying.
