Yep, Bistro UI. Strobe is hidden, memory and moonlight can be enabled/disabled, number of modes and modes order (low to high, high to low) can be changed, etc.
It’s better to have an UI that is configurable by the user than changing convoy UI each time someone request a varation that can be changed with a programmable UI.
I will be OK with any set of 4-6 modes of constant light (strobe is not mandatory; moonlight is).
What I’m looking for is versatile power supply (everything of AA form factor can be used: alkaline, NiMH, Li-Ion,…) and size.
Such a one-cell flashlight should be most compact, allowing even holding on keyring for an ideal case.
Two-cell option will be comfortable for self-defence purposes because of diameter/length combination (but need no tail button here).
The ramping driver is regulated. Comes stock configured at 8A in high, using a 5mΩ (R005) sense resistor (I recently built a C8S with a ∅22mm unit and got 7.63A measured with my power supply for that unit). Being regulated means it uses the MOSFET in linear mode by tuning the gate voltage to limit current to desired values, thus it won't go above 8A unless the sense resistor value is lowered.
Better to say this than having to hear someone complaining at a later date. Wieselflinkpro is probably better served with an unregulated MOSFET driver (with @#$% PWMed mid and low modes) if he wants as much current as it will go.
Thanks for the point, it’s interesting. I also saw Sofirn SP10S, but this brand usually glues all the head as far as I heard, it isn’t nice. Even omitting upgradeable optics/LED point, what I have to do after breaking the glass, for example?
BTW, single model with optional extension tube (1*AA <-> 2*AA) is even better solution than two different flashlight models, I missed to wish that initially
