I would too. Would really like to see this as a single LED, AA and 14500 compatible, and something stainless/ti
Been out of the scene for a while, so there may be something similar with anduril already made?

Nope, Anduril requires lithium cells.

An FW1AA is something to look forward to. I was just hoping to get my FW3A a girlfriend since he gets turned on so easily and goes to max ramp with the slightest stimulation. And, every time I come in the room he slams his laptop shut. I looked at the logs and apparently he’s been looking at stuff he can’t afford. He isn’t into tattoos, so the etching is a turn-off. With his budget he was hoping to give a potential mate some NIMH cells I already have a ton of. Don’t have a single 14500, as yet. Have some 14430s, but they’re super low-capacity and probably very low-drain. Sad

Hmm, to be more precise, Andúril runs on MCUs that require voltage above alkaline single cell. 2 or 3 (not sure) alkalines, CR123A, and such can do it. Also, gchart has a sofirn light (SP10S?) running Andúril with AA alkaline/nimh – but that’s a bit complicated, with the MCU’s voltage being boosted.

Just reporting what I’ve seen posted about Andruil, Toykeeper has said multiple times it requires lithium cells. It might depend on the version of Andruil, not too sure.

Anduril doesn’t care about the power supply, it never did. It’s just the MCU that needs at least 2 V. You could easily boost the voltage up.

A boost circuit powering the MCU seems like a recipe for high parasitic drain. But I could be wrong. I would love to see any ramping UI running whatever MCU necessary for a NiMH cell to work with low parasitic.

Bare bones, watered down Anduril Ramping UI

From off:

1H moon (pause for 1.5-2s then continue ramping)
1C memory
2C high (current chosen which naturally stabilizes at ~55-60C tail-standing w/o any airflow)

From on
1H ramp up
2H ramp down
1C off
2C turbo (timed step down for simplicity – another 2C returns to previous mode – manual restart if desired)

No other fluff. It’s an AA light, so no blinkies of any kind make sense. No aux LEDs draining the small cell. I can’t see how this UI couldn’t be written to fit within even the smallest of MCUs

How do we buy one now, never having been part of a group buy here?

I will put your name down on our list later. Deal information will be forwarded to all when preorder starts in about 1-2 weeks time.

Beautiful family portrait, all free of etching(whoops, missed the FW21A etch). Does what’s going to be shipped for the group buy have etching or not?

I guess put me down for a 219C 5000K. Worst case scenario it wouldn’t be hard to sell.

Will be interesting to see how they fit a FET+7+1 on a single sided 17(?) mm driver(!). Stacked 7135s? Or the specs are wrong…

Seeing this image, it seems that the FWAA will be even shorter (although larger in diameter) than the DQG Slim Ti AA Shocked

Taller than DQG @74.1mm.

In the photo it seemed smaller than the RovyVon A23, and I put the A23 side by side with the DQG Slim Ti and this one was bigger by 1 or 2 mm.

In any case, it will be quite small Wink
And I like it Big Smile

I have a feeling we won’t know that until someone gets one and takes it apart. My money is on it being a FET+1 instead of a FET+7+1.

If that’s the case the FWAA will be TINY. The A23 is the same size as the A24, it’s next to an FW3T in these pics.
