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

Fixed that for ya!

Thanks for the recent updates!

By the way, separate from all the insistent noise in this thread, quite a few of us are just quietly but regularly checking in on the thread, keeping patient. We appreciate all who have put in efforts to bring this project to fruition.

Looks awesome, thanks for all the hard work you put in to make this possible. All people that made it possible. :heart_eyes:

Also, instead of 1 of each emitter, i would like to change to 2 of LH351D 4000K 90CRI.

Im in for 2



Thanks tatasal and TK. RC exactly how I feel

LOL! Just saw you had my Mentos Tower as your pic.

I would like to be on the list for 1.

I heard a little bit more about that. It seems the driver wasn’t flashed correctly. After reflashing it, apparently it worked fine.

Also, I sent a new version which I hope will be used. I think that might be what proto4 has now, but I’m not sure. Not much changed, but there is at least one user-visible improvement — double-click from off no longer turns off before going to the ceiling level.

TK was that FW3A specific ?

I don’t see any issue(like described) with Anduril on my D4.

Edit. Double click from off doesn’t turn off?

It seems I need to stop procrastinating and update the UI diagram so it won’t require color. When printed on a black-and-white printer, it can be hard to tell the difference between single clicks and double clicks.

Oh my TK. Only one thing I can say to those photos.

Two more Please.

Looking really nice, that switch is pure class

I’m in for one LH351D, please and thank you.

Light looks great, the beam shot even better. I have been waiting for this for a while. Looks to me as if it will find a everyday place in my pocket. I think I only put myself down for one 5000K light. I would like to add an additional 5000K light. For 2 total lights. Pretty late in the list so I understand if I won’t be able to order the second one at the same time.

Thank you everyone for all the hard work.

EDIT: Never mind. I did what I should have done and searched the thread first. I see I am already down for 2 lights. Sorry.

This looks like wallet torturing :person_facepalming: :money_mouth_face:
I will resist…I hope… :innocent:

It is looking pretty good so far :heart_eyes:

OP can be later updated with photos of the latest/last version, TK? :wink: And thanks again for the work done so far!
And to tatasal, thanks for these latest news !!

I would like to be on the list for 1.

Beam shot had me drooling and images of the light…WHOAH!!

My wallet won’t like it but I may have to request another one.

So yes, one more with LH351D please.

Will have to sell off or use my other multi-emitters as loan-out lights.

Thanks very much for the update TK. It looks like a crisp and clean design that should satisfy many who want a short bulbous triple using known-good components. That might be able to sustain 3 or 4 hundred lumens. Like any other such torch with x8 7135s (hopefully good ones). No FET actually required.

At least it has no switch or aux. LEDS, (vomit) so the design is still pure in that respect.

The thing is, by now it should have been re-designed with a tube to take 21-70 cells. The head and tail are so fat that the slight extra width and length of the tubes would hardly be noticed, and it would be so much trendier (assuming 18650 adaptor also included, for real people). Missed opportunity. Joke.

Fingers crossed that it progresses briskly now, and proves reliable. Good to see that you already have one yourself, of the latest version. That’s quite a relief, now that Fritz seems to have become a “sleeping partner”.

Running into four prototypes over several years made me despair a little. That’s not a normal product development time-scale for this sort of thing. I expect absolute perfection after all that process.

Thanks for your, and the other people behind the scenes’ efforts, and apologies for any undeserved chivvying and sarcasm/irony.

Honestly, you seem to be doing a great job, despite extreme adversity, and that is admirable.

So, when should I expect to pay for mine, and to whom ? Has Neal got that sorted out yet ?

Any idea if the diameter and thickness of the MCPCB is pretty standard? Would a Noctigon/MTN board drop in without filing?
