I never used muggle mode on Anduril because the max lumens is set way too low. I want to gift lights where the full potential can be used. The problem is anytime someone uses an Anduril light, they end up in some blinky modes and change all kinds of settings.

I’m thinking the reason is if you teach them that double click goes to turbo, they just end up being super click happy and think that the more they click, the brighter it gets. lol

Thanks for the answer. So it means the driver remained unchanged…

I guess it would be worthwhile to be able to configure the max muggle level….
I’ll see if I can contribute that change. Smile

BTW, my own variant of Andruil is different from stock largely by the removal of most features. I would often misclick and the light would do something wrong. Like lock me in the muggle mode. Simpler is better for me.
But at the same time it’s not general purpose. I have a feeling that being able to enable and disable features through configuration would be a nice upgrade…And being able to change the action mapping (f.e. lockout with 3 clicks rather than 4) would be even better. But it’s uneasy. I tried to do a compile-time configuration like that and even that is hard, I don’t know how to do it well.

Parasitic drain is a serious issue on my FT02, to the point that I regret having bought it, and I regret that I have recommended the light to a collegue. It has killed two batteries now, one of mine and one of my collegue. Locking out the tailcap works nine out of ten times, then you forget it and a week later your battery is down to 1.2V. When a light is off, it must be off.

Still the design and functionality of the FT02 is great, but if they did not fix the parasitic drain, it is not worth buying it IMO.

Thanks! 12V! Interested!

Seems like a great host for the GT-FC40 which comes with a 20mm MCPCB. Hope this fits easily.

Just wondering, how high is the parasitic drain of the FT02?

FAQ

Question 02: What is the parasitic drain value?

Answer: µV

Does this mean there is not an issue with parasitic drain?

Hey, freeme, thank you for bringing us all these deals!
I use the original FT02 a lot and my only complaint is the high parasitic drain. I see they fixed that in this new version.
Can you twist Banggood/Astrolux arm a bit and get them to sell us these new drivers so I can upgrade my old FT02?
