    A tail switch is an ordinary reverse switch. And it is not set to low mode even if it twists a tail cap.
    Please let me know whether it is set to low mode.

    How were the reflector and the LED unit separated? heat and unscrew?
    No 2 way switch. Only on, high and off. Reverse clickie.

    I just unscrewed the reflector and the led unit. No heat needed.

    Thank you for the reply.
    I thought whether two brightness, HI and LOW, could be changed.
    They said "Runtime(s). : It was called 2.5 hours HI and 1.5 hours LO with DLG 186503 hours HI with 2 X CR123A."
    It means that in DLG 18650 for 2.5 hours bright in HI mode and then it shines in LOW mode 1.5 hours.

    I did separate the reflector and LED module.

    Thanks!

    Emilion told me the light's switch is modable like a Q3 to have 2 modes. Anyone care to take out the switch and board to take a look? Maybe it's just a resistor that needs to be added and the switch changed out for a 2-stage. I think Digikey has a switch that's On1-On2-Off now.

    Thanks your support extremely!
    We do not have 23 to adjust the light, “It was called 2.5 hours HI and 1.5 hours LO with DLG 186503 hours HI with 2 X CR123A”. meaning are in the voltage high situation, can shine for 2.5 hours, when the voltage drops, the flashlight also can lower the bright work, this period of time length is 1.5 hours

    Thanks

    2 switches are the matters which extremely easy to process, but we thought the significance is not very big, if because adds the resistance to enable to have the accent light function, the period of revolution cannot be longer than the present, therefore, we have not made 2 switches.

    Thanks

    Default Re: Emilion's Hunt Light 3W FT-01, Many Pictures!

    Just got my FT01 last night! I must say, it's a very nice light!

    To start off, I want to mention how nice the presentation box is. I thought the box that my Nextorch Z1 came in was nice, but this box is really nice! The edges of the box got a bit bent from the delivery service, but not too bad. Like the Nextorch boxes, there's foam cutouts to hold the light and accessories. My light came with 2 lanyards and one of them is interesting as it has a small pig on it...funny looking...I like it. The box's lid is a flip-up lid (not a removable one like the Nextorch) and is locked down via 2 magnets embedded in the flaps...a nice touch I think. This box would impress anyone if it were given as a gift.

    Ok, to the light. I got the one with the improved clip and brighter output.

    Exterior/Finish/Aesthetics - Everything's machined very nicely and the TypeII finish is very even. I took the light apart and really appreciated that it does not have any darn glue anywhere!...nice! The tailcap and head threads very smoothly even w/o any lube. The bezel is a bit rougher, but not too bad. The clip is useful...not overly tight that it's hard to clip on my pants and I really like the bezel down carry. The finish is matte black. On it's own, it looks quite black, but next to the Nextorch, the Nextorch has a blacker and a bit shinier finish. It's also not quite as matte as my Scorpion or FB1 finish. Overall, very nice machining and finishing.
    Aesthetics-wise, it is one of the most attractive 2cell lights I've seen. It's Surefire-esque, but still different. IMO, it looks better than other 2cells I would consider such as the Nextorch Z3 and F3, MicroFire, Nuwai BigQ3, and even my Streamlights (which I find very attractive).
    Note on the clip - it works well, but the screws used are an awkward design. I've never seen them before so I have no idea how I'd ever R&R the clip.

    Ergonomics - The body increases in diameter as it goes toward the tail and the clip is attached to this point. My hand fits perfectly between the head and this increased diameter point...and my thumb reaches just right to the switch. Switch is easy to push, but not soft. It makes a very audible click. I do wish it was a standard clickie for momentary capability, but for the price and performance, I'm more than happy with the way it is. The battery tube is quite large...there's plenty of width space still with primaries and even Li-Ion R123As. It's comfortable to hold in my hand.

    Output/Beam/Tint - Tint is mostly white with a very very slight hint of pink at the edge of the hotspot. Hotspot is fairly tight...tighter than my Nextorch Z1 but not as tight as my Scorpion LED. The reflector is textured so the hotspot transitions quite smoothly to the spill, reminds me of my Q3, but with more contrast between hotspot and spill. There's a dim ring beyond the spill area, but it doesn't affect anything.
    Output...here's one thing to note...I'd highly recommend running it off either 2x 123As or 2x R123As instead of a single 17670 or 18650. I don't have either of those Li-Ion cells, but do have 14500s and 17500s. I also have solid aluminum spacers, so I don't think they introduce much resistance (really, a spring contact would be more resistive than a solid piece of aluminum). Off a single Li-Ion, it's not as bright as my Nextorch Z1 which I estimate to be about 40lms. I'd guesstimate the FT01 is about 30-35lms off a single Li-Ion. Throw in 2 primaries or 2x R123As and BAM!...it's BRIGHT! Brighter than my modded Q3 which I estimate is 50-55lms, so I'd say the FT01 off 6V-7.4V is at 60lms easy! Very bright!
    I notice that my SL Scorpion also reduces in output running off a single R123A vs. 2x 123As (it's dimmer with my VG FB1 on 1x R123A vs. on the stock Scorpion body on 2x 123As). It's just a characteristic of the driver.
    Throw is great! I really like it. It outthrows my Scorpion LED easily and with a larger hotspot to boot.
    I had planned on getting a 18650 or 17670 cell to use in this light, but now, I'm just going to pick up a couple of 16340s instead. It will probably run for longer also off the 16340s since the buck will reduce the duty cycle due to the higher voltage, so even better.

    Summary - Dang I like this light! It's so attractively designed, easily opened, with great machining and finish, and has amazing output with a very smooth beam. I hadn't planned on picking up another 2cell light, but I'm glad I got this one.

    No pics since ernsanada posted much nicer ones than I'll ever be able to take and Huntlight posted pics of the revised clip.

    I bought FT-01 from Emilion.
    With no Box, no lanyards.
    I got the light only. And has some tiny specks in head and body.

    BTW, I measured input current at the tailcap and off 2x primary 123As, measured about 500-550mA. Off 2x Li-Ion R123As, I measured 450mA...weird that at the higher voltage, the current is less. It could be because the duty cycle on the driver is so low that it's messing with the DMM's averaging. And I do have a cheap RatShack DMM.

    Is that low? I'm no expert, infact my knowledge of such things is pretty limited, but it seems low to me. Please, correct me if i'm wrong.

    Yeah, the current's pretty low, especially considering the output (I estimate 60lms on 2x primaries). It could be my DMM. I just know it's bright!

    Thank you !



    NOW I explain about you says above !



    1It is no problem, FT01 use DC-DC driver, Is constant output power ,is 3w flashlight. P=UI ,So the voltage higher ,the current is less.



    2If you use 2x primary 123As, current about 500-550mA. It is OK too

    Because FT01 use DC-DC driver ;and the DC-DC driver efficiency 93% (This efficiency you can calculate with Output power and input power). You know .

    efficiency =Output power /input power.If you use 2x primary 123As,The input voltage is 6V; current about 500-550mA,and the LED voltage is voltage is 3.3v~3.5v;so we calculate The output current(The LED current):



    ILED=93%*Input voltage*input current /output voltage

    ILED=0.93*6v*0.55A /3.5v=0.87A

    So the FT01's output power is P=UI=0.87A*3.5v=3.04w,It is no problem;



    In fact, You can measured the LED current(output current) with galvanometry ;the DC-DC driver efficiency need our calculate!



    Thank you !

    Hi - just thought I'd post a reply to your comment re ship times.

    Sorry your light is taking so long to make it to you but as of your post (July 17th) it had only been in the mail for 1 week (6 business days) - You ordered Friday July 7th at 6:49 PM so we missed Fridays mail obviously - your light shipped the following Monday (July 10th).

    Expected delivery time for expedited parcel to the US is 6-12 business days. I can't do much to speed up the mail unfortunately ;-) The only faster option I have available for a reasonable cost is express post which is available as an option at checkout for customers who want to get their order ASAP.

    Most of my US customers have been receiving their orders in 6-9 business days so it seems to me that expedited post is a reasonable compromise of speed and cost.

    If anyone has any ideas for a better shipping method to the US fire me off a PM or email and I'll look into it.

    Anyway here's hoping your light makes it to you soon

    Best Regards,
    Scott@seriouslights.com

    My 2nd FT01 died right when I put in a pair of R123As. It flashed and stopped working. I've PM'd Huntlight, but thus far, no reply for several days. I hope I hear from them soon. I really like the light, but sad I can't use it.

    Thanks for the reply... I'm sorry I didn't catch your reply earlier. I did recieve it yesterday after picking it up at my local post office (my niece was home at the time of delivery but said the postman didn't even ring the door bell, go figure...). Thanks for the included powerizer lithium cells. The light is nice and bright and very white... whiter than my Fenix P1 (since it has a slightly purple tint to it). I like the feel of the light and the bezel down clip feature. I took it apart and cleaned the burring and added some silicone grease to smooth out the threads and o-rings.

    The body is bored a bit larger than the battery diameter so there is some radial play, hence rattle possible... my solution was cut a index card and wrap the batteries to fill the gap to prevent the radial movement.

    As for wanting the light sooner, I don't expect it to arrive overnight (it would be fine if it did) but for the price of shipping, i'd wouldn't mind a weeks wait (anywhere from 7 to 10 days is fine) but 2 weeks is a little too long. The site is done well, quite similar to emilion's, fenix-store, and led-lights (IIRC) and the products are good, it's just that for me, if it is gonna take this long the next time on expedited post, I'll look elsewhere, cause I won't be paying 25% or more than the price of the product just to ship it fast.

    Anyway, thanks again for offering such a great light.
    Darkness is the lack of light.

    Cool Re: Emilion's Hunt Light 3W FT-01, Many Pictures!

    so, basically, the newer versions of the ft01s cannot use r123s????

    ..


    ..... Well ... I have ordered one , and I certainly hope cheapo's opinion/assumption is not correct .

    I am expecting to put anything I want to into it .

    All the way in size - up to 18650.

    And if 18650 will fit - any oversized PRO-tected RCR123a should fit .

    I ordered it because of that versatility .

    .... TMG..

    Default Re: Emilion's Hunt Light 3W FT-01, Many Pictures!

    TMG - I got my replacement LED module from Huntlight and it works just like my first FT01 (which is the new model also). I measured current draw on both single Li-Ions (a 14500 and a 16340 R123A), 2x primary 123As, and 2x R123As and they were the same as what I recall measuring on my first FT01 which works like a charm (and that my bro-in-law has been enjoying). My new LED module, which included the reflector, has better focus than my first one tho (a nice plus) and a whiter tint. My first FT01 was pretty white already, but had a very slight purple edge at the hotspots outter perimeter. This new one tho is really white! I love this light...it feels so good in the hand (my hand fits perfectly between the head and the raised portion just before the tailcap with my index and pinky fingers just reaching over each end portion for grip), clicky is responsive and easy and audible, and machining is great. I also purchased the light for it's versatility in battery types and configurations, along with the output, and what I think is the most attractive 2cell light available (I think it looks better than my SF Z2).

    The FT01 is a high-end flashlight without HAIII and the high-end price. For the price of a Surefire tailcap you can buy an extra FT01 to save for spare parts (if ever needed).

    Haha, yeah, I find that interesting. My friend's a die hard Surefire guy and I just picked up my first SF, a Z2. I must say, the threading is smooth and everything's made very well on my Z2 (tho, the lamp is slightly crooked, but it seems all are like that as I also ordered a Z2 and C3 for my friend and all were a bit crooked), but I still find it difficult to justify the price of the various accessories and parts for Surefires. For the price of a SF Turbohead, I can pick up 3 FT01s or some other really nice lights (like an HDS B42). Even the 1cell extender for the SF is $30, almost enough to buy another FT01 and enough to pick up a Luxogen LR5-3W from Waion. I do like the Z2 tho...kind of like a Porsche, Ferrari, or Lambo...there's other cars that can beat them in virtually everything for much less, but they evict a feeling that's different due to their brand recognition and reputation...psychological stuff.
