I think the aux current draw is fine. Use low if you want an always-on locator beacon. Use high if you want to illuminate your surroundings. With two possible levels, this is a good compromise.

 

I agree with this mindset. This is exactly what I do with my Emisar, Noctigon, and FireFlies lights. High aux If I want them as literal auxiliary lighting at night, and low auxiliaries level (which is what I use on 90% of my lights 90% of the time) for a locater at night.

 

gotta have your cake and eat it too! Can't have that pretty, bright auxiliary light without some drain. And yea that reported drain is pretty darn high (on aux high mode), but changing resistor values for different color auxiliary LEDs is not a reasonable expectation of the manufacturer in my opinion. They could just do a lower value, and then half the customers would be dissatisfied that they aux are too low. So it's a lose-lose situation for Wurkkos. But I'm happy with the results. Well, I think I will be . I have seen the light in person yet lol.

Also, anyone can take their anodized aluminum light and just immerse it in a cup of Greased Lightning from their local hardware store for a few hours. Result: all the anodizing is gone! And do this mod while the light is assembled (after checking the o-rings and removing the battery of course), then only the anodizing on the outside of the light should be gone. Anodizing inside the light should still be intact.

 

this is a great tip! I've never de-anodized a light. But I like the method you talk about. Keeping it together so interior anodizing is intact LOL

The current of the aux LED can be adjusted. we just thought it looks need brighter on high, so the current is adjusted relatively large. If you want it to be less bright in the high-brightness gear, the current can be adjusted down. Brighter looks prettier?

That makes sense. Thank you for explaining the intent.

And it sounds like other members like the idea as well, so it was a good choice.

8 days to arrive, pretty quick! Color temp is definitely on the cooler side, but the tint seems fine, imo. Would love to see a lower CCT version in the future Thumbs Up

Got mine, actually love the tint! But, for the life of me I cannot set an autolock timer. In advanced, locked out and 10H does nothing. What am I doing wrong? Also, any firmware updates for the aux leds on when main light is on? Did not see a hex file on TK’s site.

Already available for preorder on Aliexpress in 4000K with black or red body and one new aux color (green). Looks like you can order but they won’t be ready until the 20th. I haven’t even seen mine yet (it’s in my mailbox) but I still may order a red one in 4000K.

I found this on the threads in the head of my light, like the drill bit was tilted… in 2 places. Screws on ok, but still… Still can’t get auto lock enabled. Does the stock firmware even have it?

Finally got autolock on… button must be pressed very squarely to take accurate counts. I really love it and am thrilled by the first 6000k that I like!

That is normal. The PCB has a small tab for alignment and the cutout is required to put it in. Many Sofirn/Wurkkos flashlights have it.

Not officially, Toykeeper probably wasn’t even involved in the development of the TS10. I have made my own hex that fixes this issue and can share it if anyone wants it. It is basically just sofirn-sp36-t1616 with a single line of the code commented out.

Is any other problem happen when line of the code commented out?
we now use the same firmware as sp10 pro

The SP10 Pro firmware has special code for the 1.5 V support and the boost regulator. Not sure if that is a good idea.

LEDs while the flashlight is on can be disabled by adding this line to the configuration:

#undef USE_INDICATOR_LED_WHILE_RAMPING

The big thing that feels different to me is the lack of blue and glare. The cri does not hurt either. At high drive the Duv actually goes ever so slightly negative as well!

It really is nice!

Can those of you who have the light post some pictures? Specifically:

  • What does the button look like?
  • Beam and beam pattern?
  • Side-by-side with an FWAA – based on the picture someone posted with an SP10Pro I think this Wurrkos is shorter than an FWAA, but it would be nice to have a side-by-side photo to compare.

Mine just arrived ,11 days to uk , super fast delivery.

I like it very much ,Its smaller than I expected ,good to hold waisted machining makes it easy to hold and doesn’t slip from your grip.

Button grey anodised alloy ,I guess ,nice feel ,positive slightly firm click ,probably nicer button feel than original FW3a.

Tint is cool white but I like that!!! That said it’s not blue ,cool white is not what it used to be!

Never had a reverse clip and didn’t think I would like it ,not being a cap wearer ,but it’s Ok and will keep it on the light.

Aux lights in lens ,Again never had that , I like them ,were set on high out of the box ,set them to low ,better for me.

Anyone know what chemistry the battery supplied with it is? Wurkkos branded 900mah.

Beam profile very close to FW3a

It gets hot quick ,but it would it’s tiny!

Overall very happy with it , especially at the price point.

This sounds very promising.

One of the issues with the FWAA is the beam profile is too floody. Sounds like Wurrkos might have a real winner on their hands! Cool

Does the board need to be removed in order to flash? or can it be done while in place?

No, you have access to the flashing pads after removing the battery tube.

thanks for the photo of the TS10 flashing pads (I used a clip of your pic below).. looks like they will work with the TTL Pogo adapter that gchart made for the SP10 Pro…

.
note the TTL is modded by gchart, it is not stock

The KR4 programmer will not work. The MCU uses a different programming interface and protocol.

Here is the link to the custom hex file which fixed the aux led bug. It is built on the latest revision 650, so I labelled the firmware version 202204290614.
