I prefer memory mode. Switch on where I left it. PWM is ok if it is fast enough (S2+, C8+) Strobe can stay if it is hard to initiate. E.g.: Lumintop Tool AA 2.0: click 6 times quickly to start strobe.

what about moonlight-low-mid-high without memory?
starts on moonlight and 2 taps into high
6 taps into strobe

With the S2+ and C8+ the first thing I did is to set memory mode Smile
One thing is sure: most important is to ramp from low to high, and make hard to initiate strobe.

Anyway, is it that hard to implement a memory mode in these drivers, what the user can turn on or off? It looks like it was not a problem with the Attiny.

Hello Simon,

do you have any 3V driver with 22mm diameter and for reverse clicky?
Which adapters do you have for 22mm drivers?

ramping driver

4modes


Is the current of these drivers limited per firmware or are this direct drive drivers?
Will I get 10-18Amps with a 3V XHP50.2? Is this possible?

Since I joined BLF, there is discussion about memory/no memory, and no one will convince the other.

So yes please, mode order low->high, and option to switch memory on/off. I like the classic way to do that: after 5 seconds in lowest mode a quick off-on blink shows, then click to toggle memory on/off.

Please don’t do the blinky stuff! Cool I have changed the driver in my S2+ lamps because of that blink in low mode Big Smile The “click an insane amount to go to settings” is way better I think.

Toykeepers Bistro/Biscotti buzzing after 10 clicks would be way better than that utterly annoying blink after 5s on low mode, literally everyone hates it and it’s a medieval solution.

IMO:

  • FF(0.5lm or less)>Low>Medium>High (looped)
  • Instant mode memory with no waiting for two hours for the driver to activate it
  • double press to go back one mode or long press to go to the first mode

optionally Biscotti style programing after 10 half presses to reverse the mode order to H>M>L>FF and to turn off or on the Mode memory.

This way everyone would be happy, it will stay muggle friendly and the implementation shouldn’t be a challenge.

Yep, Bistro UI. Strobe is hidden, memory and moonlight can be enabled/disabled, number of modes and modes order (low to high, high to low) can be changed, etc.
It’s better to have an UI that is configurable by the user than changing convoy UI each time someone request a varation that can be changed with a programmable UI.

I did not know that the blib on low mode for mode group changing was so thoroughly hated among BLF Party
Ok Simon, please do not do that but listen to the other suggestions Smile

What is the most reasonable mode ?

I will be OK with any set of 4-6 modes of constant light (strobe is not mandatory; moonlight is).
What I’m looking for is versatile power supply (everything of AA form factor can be used: alkaline, NiMH, Li-Ion,…) and size.
Such a one-cell flashlight should be most compact, allowing even holding on keyring for an ideal case.
Two-cell option will be comfortable for self-defence purposes because of diameter/length combination (but need no tail button here).

I didn’t buy S2+ because of blinking in low mode. No more blinking Tired
Moonlight-low-med-hi.

Oooor…
5 modes ML-Lo-Lo-Med-Hi with 2-click for back

And ability to turn memory on and off after a bunch of clicks, strobe after…idk

Buuut…
My personal best is 2 mode groups, 4 modes in each and memory on in one, and off in another, group changing after 9-click. E.g. 1%-10%-40%-100% memory on and 0,2%-3%-15%-60% memory off

If you struggle choosing your perfect headlamp, check my headlamp guide, I compared 15 most popular headlamps there: CLICK

Any chance for 15mm diameter driver?
It’s very rare.

Suggested mode:

- L – M – H
- H – M – L

No memory, no strobe (or hidden).

uh,15mm is too small

the ramping driver is direct driver
the 4modes has constant current

The ramping driver is regulated. Comes stock configured at 8A in high, using a 5mΩ (R005) sense resistor (I recently built a C8S with a ∅22mm unit and got 7.63A measured with my power supply for that unit). Being regulated means it uses the MOSFET in linear mode by tuning the gate voltage to limit current to desired values, thus it won't go above 8A unless the sense resistor value is lowered.

Better to say this than having to hear someone complaining at a later date. Wieselflinkpro is probably better served with an unregulated MOSFET driver (with @#$% PWMed mid and low modes) if he wants as much current as it will go.

Most likely not, S21 has a bigger diameter.

Thanks for the point, it’s interesting. I also saw Sofirn SP10S, but this brand usually glues all the head as far as I heard, it isn’t nice. Even omitting upgradeable optics/LED point, what I have to do after breaking the glass, for example?

BTW, single model with optional extension tube (1*AA <-> 2*AA) is even better solution than two different flashlight models, I missed to wish that initially Smile

I ask because there is a slot on the S21A for one (I think?) and I haven’t seen a specific S21A clip on Simon’s Ali shop listings.

I like 2×AA lights, I’m waiting for a Jaxman M2 at the moment, but I’d be interested in a Convoy S2+ style 2×AA tube light as well Smile

I like long 3×AA lights too, I’d buy several 3×AA tubes for my Convoy S2+ lights and just use the Li-Ion driver Evil

i have a problem with Crescendo UI , there is no memory function , is it because of attiny 13?

Same as in biscotti firmware. Only here is the first option.

Config mode
——————

To enter config mode, quickly tap a bunch of times until the light stops lighting up. It should be 16+ times. Then it’ll scroll through the options:

1. Memory toggle. Tap during the “buzz” to turn memory on or off.
2. Thermal calibration. Tap during the “buzz” to enter thermal calibration mode. – Light turns on at a low level: Tap now to set default temperature limit. Otherwise, wait. – Light goes to full brightness: Tap at any time to set temperature limit to the current temperature. Basically, wait until it feels hot, then tap.

So, to set a temperature limit:
- Tap 16+ times.
- Wait for the light to blink twice.
- Tap during the “buzz”.
- Wait until the light feels hot, then click to turn it off.

I don’t like the patina-style anodization but nevertheless I’m very interested. Smile

That 3x SST-20 light looks great!

Will optics fit in that light? I’m curious to see the beam pattern with that reflector.
Does it use a 20mm triple MCPCB? I guess the driver is 22mm and the battery is 21700 (not 21.7 700 lol)
Reverse clicky switch, right?
