Yeah, that is me.At the programming step for all Wednesday lights, should be packaging soon.
Just so everyone knows...
Several people were caught with imperfect lights after our last launch and we were unable to fulfill our commitment to them over the winter. Each received a free upgrade to the new lights and no new lights were put up for sale until they were made whole. Most of them shipped earlier this week and are the people reporting early arrivals.
Hehe, thanks guys!
Stretch is a special mode, selectable on the programming page. When off, the light runs in full regulation until the battery is exhausted (2.8v). With stretch turned on, the light runs in full regulation until 3.2v. At 3.2v, it starts to dim in slow 1/33 steps until the battery is exhausted (2.8). These are the same gradual steps used in our thermal regulation system. In practice, you:
- give up a few minutes of runtime at full power
- gain a bunch of minutes safety power, so you're not left in the dark
- have the chance to recharge the battery sooner, so it wears less
In practice, its like having a hybrid regulated + direct drive light, with just the right amount of controlled DD dim just when you need it at the end.
Thats a Brita Bottle, kept in the fridge for 100 degree days :sweat:
