Is it easy to figure out which trimmer resistor adjust each color? Do you just use a screwdriver?

Yes, it is easy. I used a small flat head screw driver. First you enable the high settings for the AUX LED, then turn clockwise to increase the brightness.

I’m new so I’m curious what is the point of changing the aux leds. I don’t even know what they are supposed to do. Has anyone that received theirs taken any outdoor pictures?

Aside from serving as an eye candy, they can serve as an indicator if you are in lock out mode or normal mode since you can set it differently. I have mine in blinking mode in normal mode and in low mode in lockout mode.

As for adjusting the brightness of individual AUX LEDs, out of the box, they seem too dim for me, so I adjusted it according to my preference.

ok. That makes sense. For a second I was thinking they were being used to tune the temperature of the main light or something. Thanks

The Aux LEDs can be made a lot brighter by trimmers, but somebody in China has messed up the values of my calculation table

End of song LED resistance 1kOhm poti 100kOhm, poti to 50kOhm as it comes out of the band
95% of the poti almost does not happen, then it gets incredibly fast bright up to 10mA alone in green

because the driver Bauer said that only this combination in low mode lights up all 3 colors instead of simply turning the green potentiometer a bit (to equalize the falling voltage across the combined series resistor of the 3 colors) and forwarding the pot position to the production

Mine has arrived and it's fantastic.  I double-clicked my D4S to turbo, shone it on the ceiling  then did the same with the Mini.  I was a little disappointed that the Mini looked to be the same brightness but guessed it was due to the wider hot-spot, then something told me to double-click again and BAM!  Even brighter!  I'm using Milicel P42a 21700's and Keeppower 5200mah 26650's in the C4s, btw.

 

I went with the 5000k tint, but to my eyes it has a green tinge when compared to the XPL-HI V2 3A 5000k's in my D4S, I'm sure that I'll get used to it in time.

 

Now, I'm off to fiddle with the Aux LED pots now, wish me luck. cool

No, thats the “Mini”-Thread.

Look at the markings on the board.

They don’t write the colors but it’s the third option from below ‘custom colors note color’. You would need to contact them, ask what they still have and order with this option then. There are no pictures from the seller just customer reviews.

So, is it brighter than the d4s for those that have both? Based on the video I posted earlier, it wasn’t.

Oh I see. Thanks for the tips. I’ll see how much I like the light when I receive mine. If it is good, I might by one of those special colors. I really like my purple MF01S. I might buy a purple or pink MT07 for my daughter if the quality is good like the MF01s.

I've just seen this by ToyKeeper "Since this light uses SST-20 emitters, the tint varies from green-ish to pink-ish as the power level changes. Lower levels are more green, higher levels are more pink."  So that explains the green tinge I'm seeing which goes as I up the powah.

 

I've tweaked the pots on the Aux LED's. excuse the crappy phone shots:

After:

No, it’s the MF01S thread. It explains how the voltage levels turn on and off as well as what trimmer goes to what led (same as on the mini version).

Molicel P42A is a high drain cell, KP 5200 is a low drain. Very different cells. You need to use the same battery for comparisons.

I know, it's apples to oranges, that's why I stated which batteries I was using, my point was the fact that the Mini requires two double-clicks from off to hit turbo, the D4S doesn't (and doesn't take a 21700) and I wasn't aware of that fact.

Yeah, the mini uses Anduril. From off, a double click goes to top of the ramp and then you do another double click to get Turbo. If the light is on, a double click will go to Turbo. This is one of the small quirks that I don’t like.

The D4S uses RampingIOS. I don’t think it makes a difference whether the light is on or off, a double click will always go to the highest output.

I can’t believe this is still still listed as a “con” for Anduril lights, just set your “ramp ceiling” to 1 click and you have full turbo from on or off with a single double click.

I can only say this is my opinion. I don’t know about anybody else. I also prefer instant on and off and a triple click always being battery check. What can I say, I’m more of a narsil kind of guy.

Do you own a BLF Q8 or any other well recognizable flashlight? Could do a side by side photo comparison?

 

MF01-Mini (7x SST20 6500k cool-white) vs Sofirn Q8 (4x XPL-Hi cool-white)

(flashlight distance to wall is approximately 18 meters or 60 feet)

(left = MF01 Mini ; right = Sofirn Q8)

Nice!

Are you able to take power consumption (current) measurements for the aux-LED? I’m wondering how high the “parasitic drain” of the aux-LEDs would be when at max brightness.
