    The answer is now in the manual!

    Also, one more interesting fact about #0201.

    The markings on the body below the battery cap arent 4 seperate semi-circles, but a solid circle. Thought I would share.

    More updates have been made.

    Now who wants to take on runtime tests??

    Under Care & Cleaning...

    I have been using on my Spy 007 with a Foaming Glass Cleaner that is safe for Tinted Windows with a Microfiber Cloth.

    It really brightens up the Ti and won't scratch at all.

    Also no lint.

    FYI...

    While the runtime graph is cool, (thank you Chevronfreak) the runtimes at the higher levels could be more detailed. I can't tell if level 6 is 150 minutes or 200 minutes, the scale is off trying to scrunch levels 5 and 6 into a little 500 minute box.
    And what does the light intensity number mean. Is that lux?

    Scottiver,
    Good points. I think it'd be nice to have a runtime for levels 1-2-3, and another chart for 4-5-6. Not sure what light intensity means, although it looks like it'd be lux. I never had one of the LuxIII Spy's, so I can't say if the 2000 lux was accurate or not. But the runtime, as Dave said, is indeed very similar to our 007's.

    Runtime at 1250mA would also be interesting - it seems to rip through primaries.

    I'm more than happy to fund the battery usage but don't have the kit to produce runtime graphs!

    Chevrofreak was kind enough to send me the graph files for his runtime tests, and I finally was able to get them opened. I'm going to edit them and make two charts, one for levels 1-2-3, and one for levels 4-5-6. This looks much better IMHO.

    Hods, I'm not sure if the light is meant to be run at 1250mA for the duration? Dave?

    I would advise against that, unless you are good at replacing emitters! I would think a solid runtime @ 1.2A would ruin the emitter.

    Post #2 updated with new runtime charts created with Chevro's data! I split 'em up into two charts, to perhaps provide more clear results.

    I believe Data requested a cropped pic of the split ring for the manual.

    Hope that is small enough.

    I use Mother's Chrome Polish (at any automotive store) on all my titanium lights. My Spy007 never looked better after a 20 min. buffing.

    Exclamation Re: SPY 007 Instruction Manual - a joint CPF effort

    Please consider the following addition for section 2 Changing Batteries:

    Before placing new batteries into the Spy007, ensure that the rotary switch is in the "off" position by turning the knob fully counter-clockwise (facing the flat top of the knob.)

    Regards,

    Thanks Mark!

    We put this in section 2:
    "When changing batteries use power-up-0 (the switch set to the off position)."

    PATE NATS to you John

    That's Positive At The Emmiter, Negative At The Switch. I like to add a little Gaelic tone and in my mind and add circumflexes and accents as appropriate but can't find them on my keyboard.

    Clearly pate can be mushroom or ardennes depending on your sensiblities.

    Ok, looks better now, thanks I like the addition of where "off" is located in that section.

    Although the term "power-up 0" isn't introduced until section 5 and probably doesn't mean much in section 2.
