This thread was created to fulfill one of the simple “hopes” of ToyKeeper in THIS post.
It will contain very simple, but useful; information to acquaint you with your new FW3A.
Not everyone will need this information, but for those that do; here it is…… posted below in order of relevance for the most part.
1. Install a CHARGED battery from the head (
front), positive to driver
2. DO NOT REMOVE TAILCAP… UNLESS:
- You want to remove clip
- You just want to…
3. Keep it tight
- Driver retaining ring
- Tighten tailcap first
- Tighten head second
The FW3A uses the Andúril firmware by ToyKeeper. Your FW3A comes with a detailed User Manual that explains this UI (User Interface) in great detail. Read it, read it again, read it until you understand it. That understanding will enable you to access & use the neat features available with the FW3A.
Please also read & understand page #11 of your FW3A User Manual. It concerns the Thermal Configuration of your FW3A.
This step of Indoor Temperature Calibration need only be done one time.
The light will operate without doing this step, but if you want the thermal sensor to be accurate…. do it.
For more instruction see post #3 & video in post #5)
IMPORTANT… Please read
The statement below was taken from The FW3A OP. read it & pay attention:
- The FW3A has smooth thermal regulation to avoid overheating. However, turbo is a burst mode only, and the user should use it only for short periods instead of relying on thermal regulation to prevent heat damage. Full turbo is powerful enough to start fires in just a few seconds, especially when aimed at dark-colored materials.

Now… without further distraction, let’s begin with post #2.
