(…) Also, the description indicates no need to calibrate the temperature, as it should be shipped with the correct ambient temperature, right?

Mine blinked out — — – (21°C), so apparently it was correctly calibrated. But…. no matter what threshold I set for the stepdown (45°C or 65°C), my FW3X immediately (i.e. after 3-4s) stepped down from Turbo to a way dimmer level (ceiling?). This is a major downside imho, so I decided to sell it right away.

I have and I think all have the same “problem” with the Lume 1
Is a very good driver but the only way to run turbo constantly is 2H from OFF.
There is no step down to ceiling if i am not wrong

Hey guys Im new here so changing driver and lights in fw3a will be a hard work for me. Is there any chance that we see ready sets of fw3a+lume1 driver for sale somewhere? Maybe nealsgadgets? Maybe there are trusted people who can assemble this flashlight for order in this forum thread?

The mokume/damaste ones also use it. There is no reverse polarity protection so if you insert a battery backwards if it’ll fry the driver.
