Hello all,

I recently ordered (not in my hands yet) a warm (4000K) Wizard from HKequipment... then I read all the horror stories about faulty firmware etc.

I'm hoping I will receive one of the bug fixed firmware models.

Anyone have an idea if the current stock are good ones?

Hi F89

I received a warm Wizard Pro from HKE about 2 weeks ago or so, and am very pleased with it. The tint is great (preferable to the Zebralight SC600w I also received recently) and I have no issues with the interface and the beam is ideal for general purpose uses. Haven't had it on turbo long enough to check the heat warning LEDs, and I like the UI so far. The button needs a strong push but not ridiculously so and I have not experienced any flakey firmware. I also read some of the horror stories but believe they relate to stock 6 months older than what I (and hopefully you) have.

It's a great light. The clip is very firm and leaves marks on the tube, so beware if you want it kept pristine.

Enjoy - I think your worries will be unfounded.

Hi Led Astray,

Great news and thank you for your input.
I was looking at the Zebralight H600FW but they appear to be on back order.
All going well, the Wizard should be great.
Apparently the heat warning flash/colour change can indicate whether it has new or old firmware.
