Just received a Noctigon D11. Yesterday the red, green, and blue alternated, but this morning the blue does not work at the switch or behind the lens.

How specifically does one navigate completely through the process, please? I have seen the graphic and the cheat sheet but am not getting all the steps, including getting out of the settings change.

Thank you!

From off, try clicking 7 times and holding on the seventh click until the aux lights start changing, it might be that you're in battery check mode or it's reset to something else.

Click-click-click-click-click-click-click hold, after that it should go through the colours one by one, followed by a slow colour change, then a fast colour change, i think slow is it scrolling between the colours and the fast is showing battery status by using different aux combos.

Hey thanks LRJ88. I was hoping to get it to either have all three lights on solid, or not have the lights working at all?

How do I get out of that setting mode? (Just trying to avoid doing it wrong and spending a lot of time getting it right)

Sorry for the late reply there, do you mean selecting one of the settings once you're decided on one of them? Just let go on the one you want. If you want to cycle them being dim, bright, or off you just click 7 times and it'll switch to the next mode.

Congrats on your new light. I dont own one, and dont know what the factory defaults are, but will try to help with general Anduril concepts.

1. Aux lights can be on low, on high, blinking, or off.. to move through those options, do 7C to advance one step at a time. I dont know which condition your light arrived in by default, but the choices are in a loop, just keep doing 7C until you get to the setting you want. I caution you Not to choose the high brightness, it has unhelpfully high power drain. I use Low, which is good for me to find the light in the dark, on my nightstand.

2. RGB lights have 10 different color options, to move through those options, do 7H and release the button on your chosen color (the last two are a bit confusing, you may need a little trial and error to tell them apart, as LRJ88 explained, one is disco mode, where the colors just cycle for no reason except to be colorful, the other is actually a Voltage color display, which may be what your light arrived in my default).

I set my Aux to Red, because it suits my nightstand application, where I dont want any Blue light. I do not use Voltage color display (nor random disco).

There is nothing you need to do, to exit those options, they simply remember the last selection, when you release the button.

Some lights arrive in Simple mode, which does not allow changing some options, for example

3. Post-Off Voltage Display is a special voltage color display for just 4 seconds after the main LED gets turned off. I do not know if it is enabled by default in your light. If after doing item 1 until reaching off, the Aux still come on briefly after each time you turn off the main LEDs, then it is active. It can only be turned off by first going to Advanced Mode (by doing 10H from Off).

I dont know if your light arrived with Post-Off Voltage Display enabled, but if it is, to disable it the process is:

do 3C from Off, this starts battery check blinks, while blinking
do 7H and release the button after the 2nd flash.
then do nothing (0C), just wait for the flickering process to finish, and the light resumes blinking out battery voltage.
Now do 1C to end battery voltage blinks.

done

here is the latest online manual, you may want to scan through it, just to expose your mind to all the possibilities. Dont try to memorize any of it.

and here is a cheat sheet with Red arrows at those 3 Aux features settings commands: (the chart might make the most sense after reading the manual first)

let me know if that helped, and if you have other questions ;-)

Sincere thanks, Jon.

Guessing it came in high disco. Troubling that the blue emitters stopped working but…

It is that bone white finish; way different hand-feel than anodizing. Got the 719A 5000K LED because we already have the wonderful D1 with a dedomed 519A 5700K .

At low light levels, the color temperature looks nice enough rendering red. Higher settings frankly lack red rendering but perhaps only obvious when compared directly with DD 519A 5700K.

Throw on the D11 whups up on the D1. 21700 battery size actually feels good; first one in that size for us.

Blue emitters illumination is absent.

From off (tailcap obviously tight) 7 clicks and not holding the last click gets the switch and under-lens light changes requested. THANK YOU!

any chance that recharging the battery turns blue back on? (that would be Voltage display, instead of Disco, not sure, I dont have a Hank w an RGB button)

> Throw on the D1K whups up on the D1.

thanks for confirming that 719a throws more than DD 519a, at the expense of some color rendering..

Larger head (significantly) on the D11 (lens) than the D1(reflector).

Yeah and like slider said, holding on that 7th click (7H) from off will option just red, or green, etc.

Well, it has been a couple weeks now since the blue emitter started working again…

I had it set on battery gauge (or whatever it's called) and it would be blue for a few seconds to show it was charged, and then going to standby illumination.

Really is a nice flashlight.

My first Andruil II.. Advanced mode is the way to go..took awhile to figure out the 7C loop function

Finally after an hour, or more, got it set to output steps with the only aux color battery indicator for a few seconds after turn off

New USB-C charging port with magnetic door is very inventive design

FFL E07X fun lil light outdoors!

Do you possibly have the DM 11? And not the D1k? The D1K and the D1 are the exact same. Same reflector and lens. The K just denotes that it's a 21700. The dm11 has a bigger head and uses an optic.

Yes you are correct. It is not a D1K, and have gone through my posts to correct the error you pointed out.

I have both the D1 and D11. Both are single emitter but the head is bigger on the D1K and has an optic.

Got to say it is a lovable flashlight! Summertime it is a more noticeable weight in the pocket of a shirt compared to a jacket pocket in winter. Still having fun experimenting with different options with standby color and 'mode'.

Standby bright is really quite a bit of light for night adapted eyes (no need to even turn the flashlight on), and really do not see significant drain on the 21700 battery.

Different colors offer more or less light as well as attract flying night insects (or not). Definitely recommend activating the battery capacity mode. When it changes to blue and green is when I have always liked to recharge. Solid green I'd rather avoid.

Once again, it is so easy to hold on the 7th click to see color options, releasing on what you want.

Click 7 times (and release) to enter the next light intensity/pattern/off setting. You must click 7 times again to go to the next option.

In the year 2013, We used to extol the value of Zebralight's sublumen capability, but this Anduril 2 offers many increments of really low light using colors. I kid you not, the bright standby does not drain the 21700 battery appreciably.

Honestly, I figured it out after quite a bit of trial & error.
But got so frustrated, I just bought a dedicated RGB flashlight; afterwards.

Do you have a pic of the business end of your d1k? Because again, the D1K has a reflector. And the head is the same size as a D1. Does it look like this?
