FW3A, a TLF/BLF EDC flashlight - SST-20 available, coupon codes public

I’m assuming 18650, I didn’t see it specified.

I’ll take two!

I’ll have to toss my hat in the ring on this one as well.

I don’t know when it might occur, if I’m not present much at the time please have KawiBoy or J-Dub send me an email and wake me up…

In for one please

In for one, really like the look of this!

So, since the design is complete does this roll right into prototyping?

I may be missing something, but why not just put the driver in the tail? Most of these FET and 7135 drivers work by applying PWM (and in the case of the 7135, variable resistance) between LED- and BAT-. The connection from BAT+ to LED+ is direct; it doesn’t even touch the driver board in the case of the new version 17DDm.

Regardless, this looks awesome. Please put me on the interest list.

In for one, whenever it’s ready. :slight_smile:

I would like to buy one.

I never thought of that, it’s a good idea !

BTW, i’m in

The driver will need a BAT+ too for it to work.
But that inner tube can do that. but a thin strip of copper or even nickel plated iron would suffice.

Me too, if that wasn’t already obvious. :slight_smile:

1 please

OP list updated

Well, the size of this light is still excellent, under 95mm.

I will buy at least one for sure.

We are talking to a Chinese party. Cannot say more for now.

Driver is needed close to the LED for the thermal regulation of Narsil to do its job, though a driver in the tail is clever indeed :slight_smile:

I agree.
I set out to mod it but i have put it aside for later…

Yeah, it’s a shame they didn’t use a metal PCB (alu or copper), that would have solved the heat problem it has.
But when you put a triple in it, you gain space for a MCPCB on the shelf.
And since this thing here has a triple set up, i thought it might be just as short as the DQG.

I was post #14 and you did not put me on the list………………

“No Soup For You”

Great looking light, and design. Please add me to the list.

Please put me up for one…

This is really going to be a multilingual enterprise. I guess 3 languages is 36 times more challenging than 2 languages.

At my age you want lumens. If there is to be a CW version, put me on the list for one.

The add-on in my eyes automatic translates CW to other parts of the spectrum. 8^)
To compensate for my eye-sight I have certain other means of perception.
In my crystall ball I can see versions with wood tubes (RBD) and carbon tubes (CRX) due to the double tube.

I know who said that :FACEPALM:

I would like one. Please put me on the list. Thanks
