Yeah, TK had added Aux LVP for RGB setups. And single-color Aux had LVP if you used the blinking mode, but not a constant mode. SammysHP and I both have patches in our Anduril2 branches to hopefully squash that going forward.

A PMIC would certainly do the trick as well. I actually have a serial of illuminated tailcap boards that use a PMIC for hardware-based LVP. It seems like illuminated tailcaps are mostly a thing of the past these days though.

Could you (or anyone) confirm that this is a feature of Anduril 2? And “RGB setups” means multi color Aux LEDs? TIA

Yes, multi color LEDs are safe and single color in Anduril 2 if you use the blinking mode.

Very helpful, thanks for all the info you share.

Now I wonder what the parasitic drain of blinking Aux is, on a Wurkkos TS10.

the drain with High Bright Aux will drain a battery in less than 5 days. Even with LVP enabled, that is not very practical.

Jon I am running a quick test wherein I set aux lights of a couple Wurkkos (TS21, TS30), a Sofirn (IF25a), and a Convoy S21D at different brightness levels and compare battery voltage drop over days. Preliminary 1st run (will repeat more times to confirm) is that the blink mode in the infamous Wurkkos TS21 is less than high brightness in Sofirn IF25a, which drains 1.55 mA, a number seemingly typical of the few lights I have.

For example: Sofirn 4.15 to 4.12 v in 3 days, vs Wurkkos 4.09 to 4.08. The drop forms a fairly consistent pattern, so far. And this is first trial so please take with a small grain of salt.

Next I will compare drop of blink in TS21 vs low brightness in Sofirn IF25a, which drains 81-352 µA (it jumps up every few seconds for some strange reason).

PS Thank you Sammy

Thank you. A couple questions please:

1. LVP here means the aux LEDS will turn off when voltage drops below 2.8V?
2. What about dim mode in single color LED? No protection?

TIA

1. Yes.
2. There is no protection for the low or high level, only blinking.

There is a patch for LVP in my fork of Anduril and gchart has made a fix as well which will be rolled out for the Wurkkos TS10 in one of the next batches.

Have you made LVP for indicator_led or for button_led? Cant find any changes for indicator led

Both are switched together, so LVP works for both.

Hello. Newbie here with a question that’s driving me mad! Lol. I have threeConvoy C8+ flashlights using I believe Anduril 2. All three lights are set to advance mode and I’m am trying to limit the options for brightness and button pushes. I have tried many times on all three lights to do this but it doesn’t work on any of them unless I’m doing something wrong. All I can get is five flashes which then repeat. I have carefully followed the instructions but to no avail. Any idea what’s going on here? Thanks in advance.

Hi, the C8+ flashlights have mechanical tail switches, and not Anduril.
Anduril requires an electronic or momentary switch.
