If I understand your methodology correctly you are suggesting using the zwb2 filter to filter out everything BUT UV and still see if it excites the phosphor? Because the phosphor is also excited (primarily blue) by UV you need to cut everything that is not.
Rovyvon’s build quality is actually quite good, and their designs are innovative. It’s a shame their website and manual do a terrible job of explaining the modes and levels. It’s so simple, right? What modes do the side emitters in the A8 UV have?
This is 4. Four.
Why the heck are there only 2 entries in the table:
Not to mention the fact that the lumens/runtime specs are not available from them directly.
Hum, I hadn’t notice that the specs for the White LED were missing :person_facepalming:
You are right, the side white Led has no runtime on this table! Maybe it will be a little like the amber light? I don’t know if their level of battery consuming will be similar or not :zipper_mouth_face:
I guess I didn’t understand correctly your last sentence! What do you mean by not being available from them directly?
Maybe it is too early for my brain to understand
My bad phrasing, I knew it sounded weird. Most brands put their instruction manual online. If Rovyvon doesn’t want to, fine. But at the bare minimum they should state the lumen levels of the main emitter, somewhere. They only put it on the website for some models, and we’re forced to turn to reviews for such basic information.
Eheh, no problem
Hum, they have the information about the main emitter output in all of their lights (as far as I perceived) and now with the Nichia versions they also added the output with those emitters.
However, the side emitters don’t have references in the site (not about the lumens, but about the runtimes), only in the user manuals.
As example, both the A5R and the A8U have Red emitters, but they have very different outputs as shown in the images above
So yeah, maybe RovyVon could include that data in the site!!
xevious - Interesting, mine has the exact same issue. I’ve tried to get a photo of it but the particle keeps moving around. I’ve decided to just keep it as is since it doesn’t appear to have much of an effect on the light.
Thanks! ZeroAir always has great reviews, lots of details. Wish I could figure out how to do those graphs. Bummer that PWM is still noticeable, but at least better than before. The more I use my A8 v1, the more I’m just so aware of the PWM because it’s non-existent in all my other lights. Just don’t get why they weren’t able to eliminate it altogether in this release. :person_facepalming:
The copper A3 looks very nice. I really like this body shape.
Here is the Aurora A8x upgraded from the Aurora A8. It has two options for front LED - CREE XP-G3 cool white and Nichia 219C neutral white. Thanks to the optimized driver, the PWM was improved and the standby current is also much lower which means it can last longer before use. The 330mAh battery also contributes to the longer runtime and standby time, the max runtime goes to 66 hours at ultra low mode.
