I won’t be buying any more Fireflies flashlights if this is the standard to expect as below. I was looking forward to trying Fireflies products but sadly a very sour experience.

Still waiting for any resolution with this, at the moment I’m facing selling it and taking a hit on the condition.

I bought over a dozen Fireflies light direct from the Fireflies website and never saw anything like that. Yours look like a used product. You need to inquire with the dealer where you bought it from.

I’ll second that. My fireflies bought direct have been flawless. The marking around the lanyard hole is a giveaway that yours was at a customer before you. There is no reason that fireflies would try to put a keyring on it.

I think your resolution should be through Neal

Sounds extremely interesting, especially the combination of the new CULNM1.TG LED, TIR optics, and a high efficient driver.
I’m still missing a combined buck/boost driver for flat regulation, but a buck/FET is already much better than a simple FET – especially because the Osrams are having a quite low Vf.
May I propose a voltage indicator feature using a RGB LED in the switch? Would allow to constantly read the voltage, while charging, while in use, and also while on standby (Andúril supports this).

22430 is an interesting choice. I’ll be happy to see how does it work.

I can see the new lights appear in the shop one by one, highly appreciated!
Do you think the T1R will make it before New Year’s holidays?

In this size, is there a protected battery available?  I would like a couple of these lights to send my friends for gifts.

I have to say, I love the different battery tubes and tritium slots so very well done Fireflies! This model is a good size! Looking forward to it launching.

This is very interesting flashlight. I thought it will use reflector, but it look like Fireflies has release new video of it:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/594119030988280/permalink/1255668698166640/

Do anyone know what optics is used? It look like some special TIR optics instead of reflector. Do you know how it compare to reflector? It look like there is aux RGB led under the optics which is probably the reason why alumium reflector is not used.

Specs in OP say: High efficient 3.6 Degree TRI Optics; Up to 138cd/LM

I assume typo: TRI should be TIR. Maybe it's like the E01 optic, but I see the E01 is spec'd at 6 degree TIR.

The head diam of this mini light is wider than the E01: 36 mm vs. 34 mm

Are you referring to Acebeam E10, which uses the same optic as the Manker MC13? I don’t see an E01 thrower. Specs on the FF mini thrower is superior to that of the E10 and the light looks much smaller. I’ll see how it compares when I get it.

Interested.

Has there been more info on price/availability? Seems there has been no updates.

Based on the info in the op.

1. This needs a deep carry pocket clip option
2. The switch needs to be suitably designed (recessed) to avoid accidental activation when in your pocket

Oh yea I forgot about that light. This optic is going to be waaaayyyy better than the E01 optic. The E01 optic creates a lot of artifacts. The beam on this new light looks much cleaner and more focused.

Interesting... I assume you are judging the beam from the posted vid? It does look pretty good compared to my E01. I flashed the E01 with Anduril2 smile

So between an improved optic and better throwy LED, should do wayy better than an E01 - I measured 32 kcd on the stock E01 on a 30T cell, which is probably close to blowing/blueing a SST-40.

Yea judging from the video. The E01 was the only FF light that I didn’t like. This light however looks amazing

That’s quite large if this head is similiar to the ec01. I wish they made this light the same size as the nano gt but with the 16340 cell.

I make fast comparison with T1R (left) and GT nano (right)

Led: same CULNM1TG
Lumens: 1000 vs 450
Candelas: 125000 vs 23400
Thorow: 700m vs 300m
Battery: 22430/18350 vs 10180
UI: Anduril 2 vs Narsil
Size: 79 × 37 × 26.5mm vs 24 × 52.5mm (head size much bigger)
Dirver: 6A buck vs 2.5A TA FET
Charging: 2A USBC vs (no detail but can charge)
Weight: 78g vs 17g

The gt nano is much smaller but T1R should last much longer and brighter.

This light is much closer in size to the GT Micro. Micro is 36 mm head x 105 mm length.
