Lumintop have told me only a 75mm+ protected cell will fit in batch one.


If it was my light, I would simply stretch the tail spring to make it longer. Or maybe swap in a longer spring. Or add a solder blob on to the button top. Easy fix.

I can do that but, I won’t recommend it in a review

it says on banggood the current batch does not fit flat tops unprotected like fw3a.. so the question is , why did lumintop sent that batch to banggood? kinda useless if normal 21700 unprotected suddenly are too short… this is something u shouldnt have to worry about.

Quote:
*This is a early version of the FW21 that has a longer battery tube than the later production FW21’s have. This version does not support unprotected 21700 batteries as they are too short causing intermittent operation. If you can find high drain protected 21700’s you should be OK. Unprotected 18650’s will work with the supplied adapter though what is the point. Might as well by a FW3A. Wish I had known this before hand. *

About longer tubes..
I have also first batch from BG and I wrote to Lumintop if I can get shorter second batch tube and they told me that tube is the same on both batches but second one has longer springs.
So they recommend me to swap spring for longer one.
Ive swapped the tail one for spring from led4power and all cells now fit perfectly without rattling and poor contact Wink

Hello, do someone know, where can I buy FW21 (not FW21 Pro)? Just can’t find it anywhere, only pro version
