the 12 mode mechanical click driver is superior to Anduril

If you feel like elaborating, I would be interested in hearing why. I got the 4 group driver on my C8+ because I heard there could be a bug on the 12 mode. What makes the 12 mode driver so good?

That bug was fixed many moons ago

Texas Ace Lumen Tube calibrated with maukka lights

Is the T3 a 16mm mcpcb? Or still a pain in my arse 14.5mm like T2. Figured I would ask here, I’ve bugged Simon way to much

I’m pretty sure no one has a T3 yet. It just came out and shipping via slow boat takes a while.

Could you elaborate please? I have one 12-group driver installed a year ago in a M21B which i don’t use very often and I notice that it sometimes resets to group 1 with mode memory, despite me setting it to group 6 without mode memory. Is this the bug you are talking about, or is it something else?

Simon updated his T3 photos. Looks to be a T2 body, with newly designed knurling.

I’d be willing to bet battery tube & parts are interchangeable with T2!

I really hope it does not have bad PWM like the T2.

Also, can a lighted switch be used on it ?

Aw man. I was hoping it would be a smaller/slimmer body. The T2 is one of the largest 1xAA lights on the market.

> 12-mode driver
>Could you elaborate please?

I turned my back for a minute and apparently a lot of progress happened. Is there a summary/review/Wiki available?

I have a surprisingly large collection of outdated drivers I never got round to installing, why not add some more?

The recent T2 driver does not have any PWM. The original did have bad PWM.

Couple dollars more for the 12-mode…says $18 and change for me. I wonder if he’ll offer just the driver soon. The multi-angle-pattern knurling on this just isn’t grabbing me but I like the blue and red colors…trying not to click the buy button.

Hank – someone correct me if I’m wrong but the current 12-mode driver is basically like the previous Biscotti versions – he borrowed/adapted that firmware when he moved to a new driver manufacturer not too long ago.

What are the difference between 4-modes and 12-modes? Thank you in advance.

The 4 mode only has 4 modes, can’t really do anything more with them.

I see that Simon is calling it a 13 mode driver now… It can be configured with the following mode groups.

——————-sub-option 1.1 (normal-flash 1 time) : tap the switch to select mode group 1 (1%、10%、30%、100%) ——————-sub-option 1.2 (normal-flash 2 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 2 (1% 10%、35%、100%、strobe、biking、batcheck) ——————-sub-option 1.3 (normal-flash 3 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 3 (1%, 10%, 35%, 100% ,this group is the same as the first group, in the next batch this group will be deleted) ——————-sub-option 1.4 (normal-flash 4 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 4 (100%、35%、10%、1%) ——————-sub-option 1.5 (normal-flash 5 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 5 (1%、20%、100%、strobe、biking、batcheck、sos) ——————-sub-option 1.6 (normal-flash 6 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 6 (1%、20%、100%) ——————-sub-option 1.7 (normal-flash 7 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 7 (100%、20%、1%) ——————-sub-option 1.8 (normal-flash 8 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 8(1%、10%、50%、strobe、biking、batcheck、sos) ——————-sub-option 1.9 (normal-flash 9 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 9 (1%、10%、50%) ——————-sub-option 1.10 (normal-flash 10 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 10 (50%、10%、1%) ——————-sub-option 1.11 (normal-flash 11 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 11 (20%、100%) ——————-sub-option 1.12 (normal-flash 12 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 12(100%、20%) ——————-sub-option 1.13 (normal-flash 12 times) : tap the switch to select mode group 13(100%)
