Convoy Brand MAO T4 does not scratch easily. It looks very good in real life!

I received Two TS10 Black hosts.

I used the awesome programmer I got from gchart and reflashed both lights successfully!

The Aux now turn off when main LEDs are on
There is LVP on Aux
There are 10x lower lows, now 0.01 Lumens!

This reflashing kit Totally Rocks!

I had saved a custom hex file with all my favorite user configurable settings for TS10. I was able to load all my custom preferences for ceiling, floor, turbo style, memory mode, aux brightness, etc.. Soooo Cool!

thanks to all who helped me learn how to reflash Anduril

The TS10 is an awesome little EDC!

Would definitely want to get the reflashing kit if Wurkkos will offer one. I’m not sure if gchart would be able to ship one to my country…

Fixed the link for you:
https://www.reddit.com/r/flashlight/comments/u8t6×2/how_to_flash_firmware_on_the_sp10_pro_photos_at/

Also, I have very little experience with electronics, so sorry if this is dumb, but as far as I understand it could be possible to solder the USB TTL and controller directly without an adapter, right?

That is of course not practical for experimentation, but could be enough for a one-off bugfix.

yes, that is how I reflashed this SC21 Pro
.

the programmer is also modified by gchart,
I dont know which programmer to buy, nor how to modify it

thanks for making me aware the link was broken, here it is in working order

SP10 Reflashing Tutorial

bear in mind the process requires hex file provided by gchart
and also command line scripts, edited to identify your comm port, to ping, backup, and install the hex file

Link still not working, you need to use the insert link button otherwise the forum transforms x into × next to numbers for whatever reason.

Sure soldering wires works, and you don’t even need to solder them, + can be directly connected to the spring with an aligator clip, GNG to GND, which is usually the threads, so alligator clip again, although on the TS10 that’s not the threads but the ring on the PCB. then RX and TX to R, as some people pointed out it works without diode/resistor.

edit : I forgot it’s a low profile button on the TS10, can’t really use an alligator clip.

imo Wurkkos is not a clip manufacturer, they choose clips available from a clip factory. So if we want to suggest a clip, it would be good if it is already available for them to buy and offer with the light.

I agree the clip on the TS10, SP10, and SC21, is not ideal.

Here is an example of an alternative clip, that I had in my clip jar.
.
It is a commonly available clip, I dont remember which light it came from, but maybe Wurkkos can find it from their clip supplier. Or maybe someone knows of a more suitable clip, that already exists in the marketplace.

it fits a hat well:
.

or for a one way, this clip is also already available, and works really well, it came off a Lumintop EDC05, can be purchased separately…
.

one issue with asking Wurkkos to offer a different clip on the TS10, is that the Hat Clip option is an important marketing feature. Asking them to use a one way clip reduces the number of features the light offers, and imo the Hat Clip option IS important. The TS10 is very small and light weight, it is a great candidate for a Hat Clip.

‘is that the Hat Clip option is an important marketing feature’
Interesting question – lets find out (thought not specific to this light) Thumbs Up here
It’s nice to have the option for sure if you use a clip, though for some I guess it may make it more bulky for those who use a trouser clip. Personally I’m not fussed either way, but would rather it was not pre installed Smile

Yeh, I scratched my IF22A trying to get the clip off. Maybe the clip had a burr on it, dunno.

I disagree.

A 2-way clip is a nice to have option ONLY if you wear a ball-cap and attach your light to it. If you’re like me and never do this, a 2-way clip is vastly inferior to a 1-way clip, because:

  • It sticks out further than a 1-way clip making for a less compact light.
  • The bottom of the clip tends to lack a sufficient lip to slip over a pocket or belt. Result is instead of a simple one-handed operation to clip the light, it now requires two hands: one to hold the light and the other to lift up the clip.
  • The backbend is unnecessary weight.
  • The lip of the backbend may get caught on things when pulling the light out of a pocket.
  • Many 2-way clips, like the one on the TS10 are not deep carry. The ones that are deep carry tend to really stick out too far (example: the optional deep carry clip for the FWAA).
  • The TS10’s backbend is really small. Some users who actually tried clipping the light to a ball cap reported the backbend was too small to actually fit over the thickness of a cap brim.

Add a clip groove to the flashlight head, then flip the clip to use on a hat.

Both Choices are good for different purposes. I really like the EDC05 clip for my urban EDC. When I go camping, I like the option to clip to a hat.

good idea but installing and removing, press on clips will scratch up the anodising.. you can see Im using shrink wrap tubing so I can test different clips without damage.

another option:
design the body with the same threads at both ends, then flip the body for bezel up or down carry, without removing the clip.

Even better than press on clips, use a captive clip like the FWAA does (and it has the same threads so the body can be flipped). Then there is no need for a clip groove in the body.

dont know, but

I just got 25% off the Amazon price by buying from Wurkkos.com
without a code

Plus Amazon does not have Red TS10 hosts.

Does the MAO process require more energy and need to take a longer time to produce a stronger coating?

From what I’ve read about other countries doing it, it’s less energy and also less pollution (anodizing is actually a pretty nasty process, chemically, all things considered). I suppose it varies by applicator, no idea who the folks that are doing it for Wurkkos, Convoy, etc are or if they may be doing a “reduced cost” process for looks.

Anodizing does bring pollution, all the oxidation factories in Shenzhen are no longer allowed to open, and relocated to neighboring cities

Oh, wow…that’s a really drastic move! I’m sure that must complicate manufacturing and slow down the processes. I’ve seen a few videos showing small anodizing shops in China – no idea how old the footage was or where in China the shops were, but they looked pretty bad in terms of pollution and safety for the workers. Shops in the US could never get away with most of that (expensive to follow the laws, but they could be fined or shut down if they don’t). These shops can be in large closely populated cities as long as they have the means and infrastructure to operate safely/cleanly. Then again, I’ve seen some footage from shops that do work for major computer parts manufacturers, and those shops looked much more modern, better facilities and equipment.

Thank you for your information about some of the things in China and such…you’ve shared lots of little things in various threads that are interesting and helpful to be aware of! Smile

Thumbs Up As long as the two to three times as long wait is not objectionable. But that is how I got mine.

To answer the question asked. Though I have read every post, I am not sure I have seen an Amazon US code… but it might pay to take a look or try a search (even though I don’t have much use for the search engine here). Maybe just a general Google (or your favorite search engine) search…
Or PM Wurkos… I just am not sure how often they read this thread…

Each to his own but I’ve had lots of calls where the 2-way clips were quite handy to have and a regular clip would not have served the utility purposes. Attaching the light to clipboards, car sun visors, various small wires and cabling, suspended ceiling grid and such (often where a headlamp would be much better suited, but the 2-way clip worked a treat). Generally I prefer a good regular clip instead.

agree
it took 13 days for mine to arrive,
.
I saved $7.50 comparing today’s Amazon and Wurkkos prices

I then updated the firmware and put them up for sale. They were both adopted and shipped out within 48 hours.

I have three more coming.

MAO available now:

https://wurkkos.com/products/%E3%80%90mao%E3%80%91wurkkos-ts10-powerful-...

This is first time try Micro arc oxidation, ignore the protection of the coating during the second machining process, some flashlights have some minor flaws,
so selling MAO at a lower price, I think we may not want to try it again, it really takes time, workers have to wear white gloves during the assembly process, which is inconvenient for screwing and installation.

Do not forget 10% code—WKMB888

Nice, just managed to get one.
I don’t usually like cool white, but thought I’d try these high CRI ones. Seeing as the light is white, I went for blue aux to complete the icy look! Should go well with my red 4000k one with red aux.
Now just to wait for the brass version in 3000k with orange aux, Wurkkos?
