Sofirn, so good. I’m in for multiple.

This is amazing work gchart and everyone involved!

Does this mean budget li-ion lights with 6V or 12V LEDs with Anduril might not be far off?

Higher voltages haven’t been an issue with Anduril. The issue with higher voltage community drivers has been that 7135s are rated for only 6V, so 2-cell input is bad for them. There have been some boost drivers developed that use ATTiny series (and therefore support Anduril).

Interested as well; I don’t even care about Anduril.

Just start the damn thing on the lowest level, use a high CRI emitter, let me use lithium primaries, and I’m good to go for a few.

Sofirn told me many times they had big difficulties sourcing Nichia LEDs, no matter if it’s 219B, 219C or E21A. IIRC, 219Bs are discontinued anyway and only some few manufacturers seem to got hands on some last reels.


IMHO, best options for SP10S seem to be…


Samsung LH351D 2700K – 5000K 90CRI
Luminus SST20 2700K – 4000K 95CRI


Osram KW CULNM1.TG 6500K 70CRI


Cree XP-L HI V2 5D 4000K 70CRI (if they can get them)

If these LED options would be made available, I’ll probably get one of each (the Anduril 2 based SP10S)…

~~~~~~~~

I have a few questions regarding this Anduril driver: – (I probably didn’t read very carefully) — is there LVP for 14500 battery? (how about AA battery — understand it’s not as required for AA, because I guess the electronics might shut off if voltage becomes too low?)

Interested. I already have black SP10S and the host is nice. Anduril will be a great addition. But I wonder if it is possible to have a TIR lens like in their AAA flashlight (C01S)?

Yeah, I implemented LVP for both. It’s configurable, but for now I’ve got it set up so that if the voltage is above 2.0 volts it assumes the battery is lithium ion and uses the typical LVP threshold (2.8v?). But if it’s under 2.0 volts, it assumes a AA and uses 0.7 volts for the cutoff. Again, these parameters are configurable at compile-time.

Can’t we have the vastly superior Anduril 1 final version?

Yes, we understand that you are very particular (and vocal) about your Anduril preferences. Please realize that this is your opinion and that not everyone shares your opinion.

I don’t know if a final decision had been made about which Anduril version. Heck, Sofirn probably can’t even get the chips to build these. The lights you see me describe and document are built by me, for me, and according to my preferences. And hopefully if Sofirn is finally able to get the proper chips, they include flashing pads. If they include those, you are free to flash whatever firmware you’d like.

All of those things said, I think a slightly customized Anduril2 build would be to Sofirn’s benefit. Having the Simple UI be presented as default would ensure that the same light can work for enthusiasts and “normal users” alike. This keeps them from needing to offer a separate “BLF Edition” and regular version.

There’s a guy on my FW3X thread telling me my argument is daft, he’s saying nobody likes it!

I get why a safe UI option corners the market but that doesn’t mean Toykeeper has to completely butcher the Advanced UI, I mean no option to turn the light off from Turbo? that’s horrific. It’s the only bad thing about the close to perfect Amutorch E3S. Ironically the light might be safer for normal users but it’s also become far far trickier to program. It’s a UI at war with itself.

Sorry to hear that 1C is too hard for you to press.

I guess you’re not following events and just jumping on the TK fan club wagon, TK wants to implement one click from Turbo to return to previously used level.

I guess there’s something wrong with your memory or perception of the reality as this is not what we’ve discussed in the Anduril 2 thread and other places. These are harsh words but still don’t reach your level of perfection.

Amusing discussion. Can’t believe it. Arguing about UI. If you want my opinion, I was mostly interested in the flashlight because I want to try Anduril. Want the most customizable, advanced UI possible. Not sure about an easy dumbed down UI. It doesn’t seem as cool as a frustratingly complex UI one can get lost in. Like the second sub-level of strobe (Rave mode 3) When all you want to do is unlock your vehicle, but a spontaneous dance party starts in the parking lot because you can’t find the right mode. It’s a whole lot more fun in the end because you met 3 new friends & even got a few dates for next week.

I am probably already on the list, but I would like to be put in for 2 more please.

Also, do we have any sort of timeline for production?

As a Sofirn fanboy (a Sofirnboy if you will) I am unreasonably excited for this light!

I wasn’t sure about anduril 2. But after trying it, I’m just on advanced UI and pretty happy.
