I haven’t used Anduril 2 to know whether I’d like it or not. Now I’d be completely happy for Anduril 2 to be tweaked so there’s a Turbo in the Simple UI. Also chuck in the 2C to Turbo as per the standard for so many existing brands and models.

I already had 2C Turbo enabled in my build. But I tend to think you’re right about enabling max output in the Simple UI. To me, Simple UI should be easier to operate, not necessarily be limited in output (like was a consideration for the old Muggle Mode).

Ah, excellent. Then I’m all for V2, those were my only issues Smile thanks for the response. If I stock Anduril 2 I’d increase the ceiling to level 150 if it doesn’t get added

I can only agree with you in every way. Smile IIRC, that’s exactly what Sofirn was looking for if they decided to sell any flashlights with Andúril 2. If SIMPLE UI had a lower output by default, they would fear major complaints from customers.

What would the output be? probably need to keep in mind that Sofirn’s 14500 cells are a bit restricting, maybe keep to something they can manage, perhaps the same setup with this new driver

Output is the same as the stock driver. No changes to the power dude side of the circuit were made, just the logic/control side.

Just lovely, thank you gchart!

Would that make it the PD10S? Or SP10S “PD Edition”? Cool

Interested, a lot.  I've gotten spoiled with ramping options and Anduril/Narsil features, this would be great.  I've been toying with the FWAA the last couple weeks and it's a great light, but it lacks NiMh support, and I rather like side switches. 

Any chance a magnetic tail cap could be included for this?  That would be the topper and maybe a Tool Killer.

I also wish the FWAA was AA capable.

for your magnet wish on the SP10S, you might try glueing one on the tail.. its pretty easy to do…

I hope the Anduril version of SP10S w AA capability, becomes a reality..
