That review is of the earlier A8, not the latest A8x.

true
I would wait for a zeroair review of the A8x PWM
Yes. I trust Zero Air’s perspective on this. I used to be OK with some PWM in low modes, but so many makers have vanquished PWM. For anyone to have visible PWM now in their lights is just negligence, cheapness, or impatient to deal with it. And RovyVon is NOT cheap!

I can’t remember… is this something to do with boost vs. buck driver architecture?

The upgraded version of the Aurora A8 is here with improvements to the battery, optic lens, clip, and UI. Thanks to the constant current circuit, PWM has been improved and cannot be seen with naked eye or even under the camera.

Thanks. That’s the A8x. On the RovyVon website they’re clearing out the A8. Nice discount… but for me, not worth it to save $10 and deal with visible PWM. I’m going to wait for later this year and see if there’s a good discount on the A8x. Seems they upgraded the battery, too.

The new A8x is $37.56 (after 20% off) today Feb22, at illumn with coupon code “PD2020”.

I ordered one with the Nichia 219c and amber/red/blue.
