Yep, lovely – material speaks for itself – personally I’d rather have it plain (ish).

Thank you for adding the lumen numbers.. and output overview. 
But how does it work? 

Does it start in beacon? or in Turbo? etc

Yeah, I was remembering this design from before!
Last year Martin made this GB: https://budgetlightforum.com/node/72140

No pics there (or maybe I can’t see them), but go to the search and type custom titanium and the images will appear there and are related to that thread !

Pictures are showing! Facepalm

Nice design Thumbs Up

I received the flashlight! 

I was thinking about the user interface, and I would like to point out a few things: 

Current setup: 
1st blink: Medium1-High-Turbo

2nd blink: Eco-Low-Medium2

3rd blink: High-Turbo-Strobe

4th blink: SOS-Breath-Beacon

5th blink: To change between output level with and without memory.

 

 

My ideas: 

I like the 2nd mode configuration for kids, but 1 3 and 4 are not very well thought out.

1: people miss a low

3: not very interesting for most people, a single mode would be better, or just a simple Low High

4: most people probably don't use flashlights for just blinkies, a single mode would be better, (for 1 normal mode or 1 blinky mode)

currently, High is too close to Turbo in my opinion in terms of output. I will be reviewing it so I will get the exact numbers.

****My suggestions: **

 

1st blink: Mode group 1: Eco, Low, Medium, Turbo 
2nd blink: Mode group 2: Eco, Low, Medium (great for kids)
3rd blink: Mode group 3: Turbo, Medium, Low, Eco (reversed from group 1)
4th blink: ??? single mode??? (could be any normal mode, or even a blinky mode)
5th blink: mode memory toggle on/off

 

That's probably covering most of the stuff people are interested in.

No, I don't know. How can we see the difference?
