Thread: Fireflies E07 (1x21700, 7x 90+ CRI emitters)

    I'd say be patient for orders coming out of China. Cancelling orders will just cause more headache for Jack and probably prolong other people's orders.

    I haven't followed the BLF threads closely, but checking the last couple pages now, it sounds like shipping delays, which would not surprise me given how busy everyone usually is during the holiday shopping season, and how quickly Fireflies has introduced multiple models. It seems like they were pretty swamped with PL-47 orders, too.

    If you've already ordered, I think the best course of action is to be patient and wait for updates. If they've already shipped, I don't expect it would be easy to cancel. If you haven't ordered, it's perfectly reasonable to wait until existing buyers start receiving theirs if you want more clarity about delivery times.

    These units are now being shipped, I ordered a yellow with Nichia LED's, and received tracking information yesterday. www.usps.com confirms that China Post has the parcel. Given the realities of shipping this time of year, I don't expect to see it until after New Year's however.

    These look awesome, tiny and bright with great runtime.. I'd like to hear more about the driver. Though it looks cool, and I think the way it looks is it's best feature, I do wish the aux LED was not anywhere in or near that spectrum, or not there at all. Red or amber would have been better in practice, considering how human eyes and sleep rhythms behave.

    Ordered an E07 on Dec 3. On Dec 10, I got a shipping notice email from Fireflies with a tracking number. A week later, the tracking number was still not returning any result on 17track (the site reported: "Unknown. This number can't be found at this moment."). Emailed Jacky on Dec 17 just to confirm they had actually shipped the light and provided the correct tracking number, but received no response. On Dec 20, 17track finally started returning an actual response for the tracking number: "CHINA, Acceptance -> Your item was accepted at 8:20 pm on December 20, 2018 in CHINA." So 7 days for the item to ship and 10 more days for the tracking number to start working. Hopefully it'll arrive in Oregon in 3 more weeks or so...

    Does anyone know if the optic can be swapped on these? I'm definitely interested but I'd rather have a smooth floody beam.

    I prefer Narsil too, just simpler to use and remember. I dislike the patronising default ceiling feature.

    I don't think it's patronizing at all. I find the default ramp ceiling of Anduril on the ROT66 very useful, because it's the highest regulated output (125 of 150 stops, the full 7135x14), which is around 1400 lumens on the SST20 4000k model. Of course it can be adjusted to the full 150 of 150 stops, making for a ramp that is smooth all the way to the highest turbo output on full fet.

    1x 21700 battery
    7x emitters in front in 25 degree optics
    aux leds on side-switch and head
    Anduril UI
    Fet+1 driver
    112mm x 37.5mm x 26 mm
    125 grams

    LED choices:

    Nichia 219B R9080 CRI >90
    Luminus ST20 4000k CRI 95
    Luminus SST20 5000k
    Luminus SST20 6500k
    Cree XPL HI 6500k (6900 lumens max)
    Cree XPL HI 5000k

    The E07 has evolved since its early prototype stages. Fireflies has added a solid 10mm thick chunk of aluminum behind its emitter board to help with heat absorption on turbo. The head now has more fins than before, with the largest being 6mm deep. The light gained 40 or so grams from its earliest prototyping. As a result, the light should handle the heat from turbo fairly well, but will still need to step down eventually.

    Fireflies had 219C 5000k CRI >90 as an option from the E07's earliest stages, but that has since been replaced with the 219B R9080. Color temperature isn't given, so we don't know if it's the SW45k or SW40 or some other CCT. I'm assuming it's the same SW45K they're using in the ROT66.

    Both the side switch and the head have purple aux LEDs! Very cool. There's so many great emitter choices, I can't just buy one. I'm loving the look of the gunmetal gray E07.
    The silver version caught me! Definitely gonna order one now. I have the ROT66 and the high CRI version certainly is good.

    You can try contacting Jack Zhang on his Facebook page. I did have some communication issues with them too.

    I do believe the E07 was designed with the flashing points on the cell side of the driver. This makes flashing new firmwares really simple and/or modifying existing easy to. Narsil>Anduril Anduril>Narsil modified Anduril etc

    Love the look of these lights, anyone know what the specs are for throw on the 5000/6500k?

    Got my Fireflies E07 XPL HI 4000K today.

    This thing is BRIGHT! Similar output to a good pop-can light. A review on BLF put the output of this version at 6,200 lumens. But others on BLF have tested theirs and measured 7,000-8,000 lumens at turn-on with a fresh high discharge cell. Pretty amazing output for a relatively small light!

    In total lumen output, my new E07 blows my ROT66 Nichia 219B out of the water in a ceiling bounce test.
