Thread: Frelux Synergy1 Passaround

  1. #1

    Default Frelux Synergy1 Passaround

    Frelux Synergy1 Passaround

    I don't know how many of you guys are familiar with the Frelux Synergy1, it's a new light that had its first batch dropped about two weeks ago and currently open for preorders on the second batch. I mentioned doing a CPF passaround to Benjamin and he said go for it so here we are!

    About the maker:

    Frelux is a a one man operation ran by a dude named Benjamin that makes stuff as a hobby. Quite literally one man, He designes, machines, finishes, anodizes, assembles and even ships it all personally. This is his first flashlight, his previous product was a task light geared towards his fellow machinists. Not really a flashlight guy, he just carried a Streamlight AAA that broke one day so he set out to design a light he’d want to carry and use. Compactness, ergonomics and ease of use were the main goal, and of course, form must follow function. He came up with the Synergy1






    Passaround Rules:


    • This passaround is for US only. Sorry, just trying to keep it simple right now. Depending on how it goes a second passaround might open for the international people



    • To qualify for the passaround you must be a CPF member for at least 6 months and at least 100 posts. Exceptions will be at my discretion, feel free to PM me.



    • Once your name is added to the list in the second post, please PM me your name, address contact info and spot in line.



    • When you receive in the light, please post in this thread confirming receipt of the Synergy1. You may use the light for 7 days before passing it on




    • The light is shipped with two Enloop AAA batteries, please make sure they are charged before shipping the light to the next participant.



    • You may use Alkaline or NiMh cells, DO NOT USE LI-ION. Please don’t modify the light.



    • Please feel free to post your comments, pictures, beam shots, and/or a review here or elsewhere.



    • When you are done with the light, message the next in line for their shipping information, as well as comment in this thread confirming you attempted to contact them.



    • Please use USPS Priority for mailing and send me the tracking information



    The purpose of this passaround is to expose anyone interested to this form factor. It is decidedly unique and wonderfully innovative, as with anything new, people often hesitate. Here’s a way to check it out at no risk.

    The Synergy1 is a customize-able flashlight that allows you to design your own colorway and choose various engravings. The passaround light is a tumbled clear anodized light to hide any wear.





    This is a product still in development, the passaround unit is from only the second batch ever made. Being that the design is still in development and Frelux is of the Constant Improvement school of thought, there may be small differences between batches, eg. a new driver and firmware design is currently in development. Thoughts, comments and feedback are greatly appreciated.

    Fine Print:This passaround has been crossposted but the central participant list is here. Some participants may be manually added by myself.

    Thanks for adding me to the list.

    Will this be an XP-G3 or 219c light for the passaround?

    In a personal-space kind of light like this I would go for a 219c just for the better CRI.

    I'd say Nichia. He Benjamin said the 219C is around 4000K and the XP-G3 is around 5000K.

    It's a 2xAAA light. Currently interface is M-L-H but now that the first two drops were super successful Benjamin is looking to have custom drivers made in the US with his own firmware.
