While Sofirn is now prototyping the new C01R (see ► here ◄), I have discussed with Sofirn the option to enhance the UI. As many people appreciate a nice sublumen mode with 1lm or less, I was asking if they could offer a three-mode UI for their AAA keychain lights and the option to reverse the mode order by user configuration (e.g. twist the head 8x to change between mode group moon-low-high and high-low-moon). They said it was possible to do that but it will come with a higher sales price. The increase in costs are yet to be assessed.
Please vote for your desired UI. Voting is open for 2 months, so we should get a good feeling by the end of 2019 what people like most.
I like option 3 the most. Something like .5 lumen / 15 lumens / 100 lumens is great and worth paying a bit more for. 2nd choice would be low-high (1 / 100 or so.)
I still voted for a simple low-high because that will be best for me. But the prgrammable 3-mode UI is nice too.
I have a Prometheus Beta QR V2 and it is moonlight/low (1 lm), medium (15 lm), high (90 lm). It is very useful but at $80, I’m not likely to gift one to friends or family.
I would just be happy with an inexpensive 3-mode (low to high) AAA twisty without memory. It is very quick to cycle a couple of modes on a nice twisty. That being said, more options are always better so I voted for number 3.
I voted for low-high, but I have no problem with the high-low setup. If I have night adjusted eyes, I ususally hold over the light and turn it on twice before shining it anywhere.
I voted for >Low-High<, >High-Low< would be O.K. too.
Such a small Flashlight don’t need much trumpery.
For simplicity, I voted for Low-High (no mode memory).
If programmable and 2 group, then
Group A: 2 lm -> 16 lm -> 80 lm
Group B: 0.125 lm -> 1 lm -> 5 lm
Voted for low-high, but won’t say no to option #3.
Love me some moonlight! Not on the red though I imagine.
My current vote is for Low-High
A Low-Medium-High without mode change option would be even nicer.
If the cost premium is modest, I would go for option 3 - 3 level, mode selectable. I’m not going to take much of an upcharge though, as my preferred 3 mode option is available at good size, performance and price in the Thrunight Ti3.
For RED, I would want high only.
I have just voted for third opción, but………
¿What about to get a last mode memory, like Jetbeam Jet-u??? simpler and just as practical, right?
moonlight mode is a must imo in small lights like this.
3rd option voted
As you clearly work for Sofirn, please make these threads in the commercial section.
Not quite the question you asked, but I would pay $0.50-$0.99 for 2 mode groups. That assumes the next-gen C01s comes in at MAP $9.99 - $10.99. If two mode groups are not available, I prefer LOW-HIGH on twisty lights.
Who does? Did I miss something?
BTW, about the UI…well, I am a fan of moonlight modes so make it 3 modes, configurable for L>H and H>L and I’ll be glad
A true nice ML mode is always nice
moon low med high , no memory
moonlight mode is a must for me
