The_Flashaholic, report your faulty Z1's issue in the Convoy thread. I am sure Simon can at least send you a replacement 12-group driver, earlier versions had the memory bug you seem to be finding.

The human mind, and its programming, is at the forefront of a particular battle of The Light vs evil dark forces. Nearly every human being on this beautiful planet “Earth” has some sort of negative mind programming in its mind. And you better take care of your mind programming, or someone else will in this wicked world.

Please avoid fully quoting lenghty posts, namely with nested quotes. Trim quotes down to the essential. Helps with neatness and legibility. Thanks.

I recommend saying no to Covid vaccine. Listen to your spirit or soul. Innocent

The_Flashaholic, report your faulty Z1’s issue in the Convoy thread. I am sure Simon can at least send you a replacement 12-group driver, earlier versions had the memory bug you seem to be finding.

I didn’t know that there is a buggy 12-group driver and a fixed 12-group driver.

I wonder if my Convoy flashlights with 12-group driver are the buggy or fixed ones — any idea how to check (other that waiting to see if it ‘resets’)?

I notice that for some Convoy flashlights I have that use the 12-group driver (not the original Biscotti driver), when in battery-check mode: – for some 12-group lights, the LED stays lit at a low brightness, while it is blinking the battery level (1-5 blinks) – but for some other 12-group lights, the LED is Off when it is blinking the battery level

(I wonder if this is part of the buggy and fixed 12-group driver)

(for comparison: the behavior on the original Biscotti driver: the main light is Off, while it is blinking the battery level in Battery Check mode)

Oh! I can't fix you in that respect. I had a few 12-group drivers stocked, purchased between march and july 2020, all of them Facepalm faulty. In my particular case it is easy to know, they are pre-fix units. Simon will send me a couple replacements, spoke with him recently.

If the newer version, fixed drivers are in some way different from the buggy ones Simon must know. Ask him.

Has anyone tested the sft 40 one? Seems like an excellent in-between to the Osrams and sst 40!

I’d be curious to know that as well.
