F13 White + Red Mod


There is a FET +1 17mm driver HERE but wouldn’t be able to cut trace could use a 16mm daughter board tho.
Or there is the 8+1 7135 board HERE

Beat me to the punch!!!


Thanks guys. I know the A17HYBRID-S, but I wouldn’t be able to configure it that way, that I can use it for a X6 3x XP-L + 1x XP-E red. The A17-L81 I didn’t know.

Even if there was a firmware that does what I like (seems like pyro1son has written exactly that), I wouldn’t know how to connect the wires of the LEDs and all that.

Anyways, great work pyro1son!

It’s doable with wight’s hybrid, just put a piece of kapton under the output leg of the 7135, then solder the wire directly to it.

Both groups of leds would share the same + wire, and they would each have their own - wire. Go for it!

Thanks pilotdog. Sounds like a plan, I might give it a try. That way, I could use TK’s firmware and the 7135-only-modes would be adressed to the red LED, right?

Exactly. I did similarly with my own S8. Search “Transformation Saturday” if you want to check it out

Thanks again. I’ll definitely check your S8 out.

Very clever. Love your mod.

Btw, I just re-did the driver in my S8. I took my own advice and used wights 17mm FET+1 driver with a piece of tape under the 7135’s output pin. Works very well indeed.

Sometimes it’s clever to take a good advice. :slight_smile:

Finally perfected the firmware:
1st Group:
White (5,56,135,255)
2nd Group
Red(5,56,255), White (5,56,255), Strobe (500ms on, 5000ms off)

Just need to work out how to give the reflector an LOP and its complete.

This may help compliments of OL.


Finished my S2 White + Red.
2 Nichias + 1 Red XP-E, 8+1 driver, frosted narrow optic.

Two Mode Groups:
(White: Low-Med-High-Turbo)
(Red: Low-Med-High)(White: Low-Med-High-Beacon)

Nice work! I may be copying your original one soon, if I can bring myself to cut up some beautiful noctigons…

It’s actually harder than it looks took a while to get it cut down cleanly so but them up close enough

My other option would be to just use a little 0805 red that I have from my lighted tailcaps and air-wire it next to the main led. The red wouldn’t be nearly as bright, but it would be much less hassle i think

I have tried this you can run two in series off one of these drivers but they are significantly less bright

It would really only be for a red moon and maybe a slow beacon. Do you think it would be bright enough for that? On my bench they seem really bright, and with a reflector to focus it i think it would be ok.

Possibly with two in the reflector directing the light, but my 0805 leds are quite dim.
