Nice review. Feel free to share some pics with us in the Prometheus-Lights-The-Showcase-GalleryI've just installed an Icarus driver in a modded light and wanted to share my impressions of it.
It's a well built and robust piece of gear. I've rewired and messed about with it physically. It's been covered in grease, Isopropyl Alcohol, PCB Cleaner and Servisol Switch Cleaner.
I've messed with the programming until my wrists hurt (I'm using it in a Twisty).
The programming is straightforward and effective, and the UI can be as simple or as complicated as you wish. 2 mode groups with up to 7 modes in each.
22 separate light levels plus 4 Disco modes.
There's certainly more there than I'll ever want or need, and I'm looking forward to fitting one in my next build.
Jason and his team have been more than helpful with my stupid questions, knowing that they were only an email away was one of my main reasons for spending the extra cash on his driver.
It's usually 8 presses with ~ < 2 seconds to enter Programming ModeI need help with my Alpha. I’ve emailed Jason & team but they’re busy as well, cannot just give all their time to me, of course.
My Alpha came locked to high or turbo. I’ve a Boss 35 so i’m very used to fast presses to get into a program mode.
With my Alpha, nothing works. No matter how fast or slow I go, I cannot enter program mode. I have video’d it and emailed those to support, alas, it’s the weekend.
How fast do the presses need to be? In real world terms? I am counting like Jason does in his video but it won’t have it at all.
It wouldn’t be an issue if I had a mode group selected, but it’s locked to turbo ffs. Makes the 8 presses even more annoying as it’s so damn bright! It’s migraine inducing. Multiple attempts to enter programming just acts like the strobe.
