Fireflies PL09MU new E21A 21700 flash light from Fireflies

Today I was looking at reddit and I found that there is a new flashlight released by Fireflies! IT looks like it is a 'baby' version of the NOV-MU, and this one uses 9 E21 LEDs. It does not seem to have charging capability like the NOV-MU, but it could be a good more affordable option (NOV-MU is $98), and slightly smaller. It could be a good gift for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

This is the listing on Fireflies website

Here is some pictures

Nice. I wonder if the 15% off coupon applies to this light.

It doesn’t appear to be explicitly excluded and there is no list of “included lights” so I imagine the 15% off code works across the board. I think it even mentions that if you buy enough of these, you’d even get one free. So I’d say it’s a safe bet that the code works for this light.

The 15% coupon applies. Unfortunately, the specs on the FF website don’t mention the high efficiency 6A constant current buck driver; just digital current regulation on lower brightness.

Oh for sure this one doesn’t come with the Lume 1 driver. Jack hasn’t been able to get anymore of those for what feels like close to a year already. That’s why he’s “Sold Out” on all his newer lights. He has the lights and everything needed to make them, he just can’t get the Lume 1 drivers.

What is the user interface pattern for this Fireflies PL09MU ?

If I hadn’t missed the sale due to family travel, I wouldn’t need to ask, I’d know because I woud already have gotten one because it looks enticing.

Oh, found the spec info, it uses Anduril, that’s good news

You haven’t missed the sale JUST yet. It was extended due to it ending a few hours early on the last day. At the moment it’s still working if you want to get something. It’d be a stretch if it lasted more than another 12 hours or so, so keep that in mind. The code is “Xmas15” in case you’re interested.

I don’t have anything genuinely useful other than maybe a couple possible obvious things.

Have you tried the loosened-battery-cap-twist-press-hold-to-on reset?

Also, could it possibly be Anduril 2 and it’s maybe just in Simple mode?

That’s all I could think of really.

Ok, sorry I wasn’t more help. Figured it was worth a try if it hadn’t been done yet is all.

Twist the cap off, leave it a few seconds and tighten it back.

From off, do ten clicks and hold untill the light flashes.

I think your problem is that you’re stuck in simple mode.

Thank you for the heads up. As far as you can tell, what disappeared in the abbreviation?

I should’ve looked earlier, FF included with the box came an abbreviated operations/diagram instructions.
Step ramping
smooth ramping turbo
Battery check
Strobe’s
Lock out
Aux off low high blinking
are all the features noted

Oh so this is a more muggle friendly version of the Nov-Mu AND of Anduril. Kinda like a new cross between simple mode and advanced. Good to know. Thank you for confirming it with the included manual.

Does the light accidently switch on?
I tend to carry in a pocket full of junk Smile

Are there reviews of this light. I don’t care for lumens above 1000, but I’m a stickler for high efficiency flooders with a spotless beam.

Can you do 15 clicks from Off and check what is the Anduril version (if it does run Anduril)?

I’m guessing this may be Anduril 2, and after a factory reset, Anduril 2 will be in the Simple UI mode which has the more advanced features Disabled (ie. only Battery-voltage Check, but no Strobe modes)

In case it is Anduril 2 with Simple UI, then do 10H (from Off, do 10 clicks but the last click should be a “hold” (do not release, until the light blinks once), This will set it to Advanced UI where the other features like Strobe are then enabled.

Anduril UI made specifically for this light it is a simplified version its not anduril 2 either it has one strobe function but the rate is adjustable by ramp up or down if you want full anduril version the light will have to be flashed. I tried factory reset multiple times its permanently set to a more simple version

Thanks for the quick response!

Any idea if this model can be updated to the regular Anduril 1 or Anduril 2? Does this light have flashing pad/points for updating firmware?
