Gnope, no visible pwm on mine, not even on low. Shaking it back’n’forth, no “stutter” or anything.
My switch has a certain moosh-factor that makes it hard to bap the switch too fast, so I never really had an issue with it. Not the best switchcap, but no problem with acci-strobe. Tradeoff, I guess.
All I ever got AAA lights for is to burn down moribund cells from 3×AAA craplights that mum gets. They croke at about 1.1V for her when the light gets “too dim”, so that’s plenty to use as a nightlight in a single-AAA light.
The E01 is so close, but the stupid SOS mode is annoying. The other thing is the horribly ringy beam. That tiny little reflector should really be orange peel instead of smooth. The little AAA tool has an OP reflector the same size and the beam is much better. I swapped the emitter to an LH351d and used a bit of matte scotch tape over the reflector, it’s comparable to a 45 or 60 degree TIR light now. It lives on my nightstand, turning on in that nice low mode is perfect for a nightstand light.
Very interested! Does it affect other modes too? How similar is it to the Glaree E03 driver? Glaree E03 Teardown & Mini-Review | JetPlow Heavy Industries
They look identical best I remember. Its been a week or so since I was in it messing around. That review has some pretty useful info in it, thanks. I didn’t ever find out what exactly the 6 pin ic was either. I did find another driver where the PAM2803 was used and had a similar 6 pin ic. In that driver the 6 pin ic was a mode control…
I’ve had one for years now. Used it nightly until the Olight replaced it.
Works fine with AAA enloops.
One issue with mine is that the head will sometimes pop off it dropped and it hits the floor just right.
And yes it is threaded, but somehow it jumps off the threads.
Some complain the switch is flakey and turns on in the pants pocket.
It will turn on in the pants, but works fine in a shirt pocket. My switch has been OK.
