I hope that there will be a more compact version of K9.3. Maybe like K4.1or something that uses single 21700 and head which is not much bigger than that. Would be nice edc-size and getting 660 nm red and white in same package or like W2 in the middle and some floody good around it.

I just leave this here too. Wink

For this, a LEDiL solution I think worthy to consider:

https://www.ledil.com/product-card/?product=C13484_ANNA-40-7-M

Suitable as both K6.1 or K4.3

Optics diameter is around 40mm, but only ~11mm tall.

It looks nice, would look a bit better with more cooling fins on the head, like at least 1-2 if not 3.

I just wish there was an upgraded D4s with lighted switch. Precious metals, sure, doesn’t matter. I know now that I have a d4 (brass) with a lighted switch I wouldn’t buy an aluminum version with a regular switch. It pains me that the D4sV2 switch is so nice (functionally) but isn’t lighted. It’s just a nice extra. Emisar does have the nicest side switches of all my lights though.

Is there any problem changing lens on D4V2 Ti? I want to buy extra lens but not confident about changing it by myself.

Hank sent me a message about the K9.3 lockout bug, so I investigated and fixed it. Weirdest bug I’ve seen in Anduril so far. Still not sure what exactly causes it, but it acts like a compiler bug or something. If I simply add some extra no-op instructions in the affected code path, the issue goes away.

It’s weird because it only affects the K9.3, even though the lockout and aux LED code is exactly the same on a bunch of other lights. Also weird because it goes directly from lockout to “off”, and there is no code path which does that any more. So that would suggest it’s rebooting, but it doesn’t do the boot-up blink. Also weird because only lockout is affected; the same configuration works in the regular “off” mode.

A steady color works fine in the low or high modes, and every pattern (including blinking) works fine in disco / rainbow / voltage modes, but a single color blinking fails:

1 ColorDiscoRainbowVoltage
Offpasspasspasspass
Lowpasspasspasspass
Highpasspasspasspass
Blinkingfailpasspasspass

But that “fail” becomes a “pass” if it has a few more bytes of padding, if it takes a few clock cycles longer to run.

Updated builds:

I doubt it’s a compiler bug, since those are very rare in practice. I probably did something wrong… but I haven’t been able to figure out what. So I hope to give it a more proper fix if I can confirm what’s causing it. Would be helpful to build it pre-fix on other platforms, to check if the compiler version is relevant. The buggy version was built with gcc-avr 1:5.4.0+Atmel3.6.1-2 from Debian.

Also, code for the K9.3 is now available in the anduril2 branch.

Is there any way to safely (non-destructively) dismantle the USB charging circuit if I wanted to reach the positive terminal of the battery tube, i.e. the opposite side of what you see on the picture? Call me a cleaning maniac but I frequently clean contact parts like springs, brass buttons, tube ends etc. with alcohol to have the lowest possible contact resistance between battery and circuitry. Fiddling with a cotton swab in the tube's obscurity is maybe not the best solution. Wink

Received my copper KR1 today, its great. i know this is probably too heavy for some, but i am 100% ok with it. i was worried that i picked the sst40 emitter, but i have been messing with it the last 3 hours of darkness and its a great all around edc beam in the KR1 – 5000k, very nice spill, throws very well (i feel better then the claimed 29KCD), and takes well over 2 minutes to heat up on turbo. i don’t know if the extended turbo is the heavy copper body, the emitter, or both but its great. heres some pics for those who care. finish is beautifully done. Also, shipping was incredible. got it to CT, USA in 15 DAYS! my quickest shipment from China in the last year. I didn’t pay extra for fast shipping.

Thanks Hank!

Terrible tint shift on that sst40.

its really not as dramatic in real life, i used whatever the “stock” setting is on an Iphone 12.. I see what you’re saying, and maybe it is like that to the naked eye, but with my normal setting (woods, tree lines, etc) it is hard to notice such things as tint shift. then again i am not the most preceptive in these matters. Also, for what its worth, the spill isnt quote that bright either, i think the phones camera was compensating in some areas.. i probably shouldn’t post beam shots really bc i don’t know the right way to take the photo. i don’t want to discount the light by taking a crap photo.

now the xhp50 5000k emitter – that is some tint shift..

Yesterday, my second K9.3 ("HighCRI") arrived at my door. Its configuration is grey body, amber switch light, CH1 E21A 2000K 98CRI, CH2 SST20 4000K 95CRI. Unlike my first K9.3 mentioned here before, this one is flawless. I noticed Hank has designed quite a large inner tube diameter to even allow 22700 batteries like Molicel M50A. That's a nice move since some 21700 batteries are actually larger than 21mm in diameter.

Since Emisars and Noctigons always like to flock together, I could not help but to order another cyan D4v2 with E21A 2000K 98CRI which also arrived in perfect condition.

Bottom line: Color me happy again Smile

What is a new style clip for KR4 made from? It is much less magnetic than an original clip.
