I just picked up a use Haiku with the Tana engine (and a lovely 219c). I'm at a complete loss as to how to program this thing. Is there a cheat sheet somewhere? Or am I just dumb?

It's most likely SuperLE with H17F driver (you can see H17F or H17Fx on the back of the driver of the module)... the only page with detailed info on H17F right now is MTN Electronics webpage, Doc's webpage is down for years...

Hey Tana,

Which LED option would get me to the 1000 lumen range ?
My Haiku is currently sporting an Osram pill from Don.

Thanks!


SuperLE with XPL HI V3 flux bin and of course H17F, on high (3Amp) it would give around 1000 lumens... now, compared to that Osram it will have much less throw, bigger hotspot and better spill (if it's Osram Flat White, I presume it is)... on "afterburner" which most call "turbo" modes it would give out even more output but pull much more current and honestly, not enough output difference to see big increase in power (especially if you take current being pulled in consideration)...

That Osram Flat White is not pushed hard in stock setups, that LED could also increase both output/throw when combined with H17F (3Amp for high mode) but would need a new copper MCPCB, and different pill (SuperLE pill)... the thing with Flat Whites I can only get ones with 6000K temp and I believe Don has neutral white which is much nicer tint (although who wants throw don't care much for tint, in most cases)...

Hi, just wondering these or other LEs/drivers compatible with the haiku have a voltage reading ability to check battery life? Also if there are any additional emitter choices available, including for an additional cost. Would love to put something like the 219B 3500k in a haiku.
Edit: tana answered my email. 219B can't handle full current except in triple. And yes the driver has voltage check.

I don't check CPF daily so sorry for delay in replies... but yeah, 219B is not a great choice for SuperLE (based on H17F driver)... but it's possible to build a module with my Tana3 firmware and 1.5Amp to 219B in which case it would give 400 lumens, all those mode groups listed and best LED in business for EDC light...
