HIDDEN MODES PLEASE!

 

2 or 3 programmable modes would be perfect, and if there are SOS and beacon modes hidden behind two or three cycles (to use in an emergency) would be very nice.

Aloha and welcome to BLF ezeqdb!  Smile

 

I'd love one with just 3 modes:  moonlight / something between low and medium / and high but I'll take anything that doesn't have those stupid flashy modes. Big Smile

There is IBS UI just like the Jet I Pro V3, with 3 user defined mode, very nice in my opinion.

Another feature I like is Flood to Throw just like Romisen RC-29 has, as long as I know that only Romisen have both "Flood to Throw" and "waterproof" feature, is there another brand available?

Would be nice if Romisen RC-29 use IBS UI just like Jet I Pro V3, in my dream Big Smile

I like the idea of being able to dial in the mode before switching on the light.

Like this http://www.manafont.com/product_info.php/7370-q5-led-5modes-led-flashlig...

Personally i would love the Hi-lo mode with memory and a special mode that easily sets up ramping if needed but not easily available to reduce unintentional activation. During the last year i often found no real use for medium. It is however nice to have on a XM-L light as hi is definitely not good for long term usage due to overheating.

Hello all,

here is another of my weird dreams. Since it's a dream I'm not too worried about feasibility.

Something like 20 programmable modes, with an easy way to set the lowest and highest modes. And the final touch - when changing modes, if the next mode is the same as the current mode, the flashlight will skip this mode.

How it works: Once in programming (say 5 clicks to enter - and yes, the Akoray is the base) you can double click to set low or triple click to set high. After a second it will start going through modes (Akoray style). Say I program Lowest - Med - Max and let all other modes on Max - The light will effectively be a 3 mode.

This should be enough for everybody.

 

When awake, I want an Eastward 4 mode XPG that can take 14500 and has mode memory....

Or a ramping flashlight (still in the mail UltraFire UF-H2) with memory...
