Thanks!

Tungsten melts at 6,192F. How hot is your hot wire?

BTW,
What's the intel on how long it takes to drop back to low from continuous medium or high?

Not sure yet Wilkey. On the 40w FFIII I've seen times all over the place depending on ambient temps and whether user was walking the dog or running for test purposes... 6 mins 15min etc...  On my unit I only had it kick down to 24w on a test as I rarely ran it for long durations...

20 more watts from the already bright 40w should be a nice pop in power and throw with the SMO reflector. I imagine a nice pop in heat too on super high.

So we know it wil be 2cm longer, is the diameter still going to be the same as FFIII as far as you know? I already have a case ordered with a little bit wiggle room for variance.  Thanks.

Looks like it's only a tad bit longer than FFIII

Before I put my name on the list, is there somewhere I can find out more about how the FF4 "protects" unprotected 18650 cells?  Putting multiple unprotected 18650s cells in series gives me serious pause unless it's being handled correctly.  Or can it use protected cells like the Keeppower 3400's that are popular?

Thanks!

I have a FF3 and I can tell you that it shuts down when the voltage gets down to what amounts to about 2.6-2.7v running voltage per cell (the cells bounce back nicely to around 3.3-3.4v if I recall which is good.)  It has no way of knowing what the individual cell's voltage is so it's important that quality like cells be used.  That simply means that new high quality matching cells bought at the same time should be used.

Protected cells can and have been used in the FF3 light by cutting the negative contact springs shorter....not a major operation.  I have not done this but I can see that it would be quick and simple to do.

Hmm, that makes unprotected cells a non-starter for me.

Well, that alone doesn't guarantee matching cells. It just makes it more likely.  You should still measure and match the iR and capacity.

Will the battery carrier be any larger in the FF4 to provide a little more room for protected cells so the wrappers don't get torn?

"Well, that alone doesn't guarantee matching cells. It just makes it more likely."

I agree 100% and that's why I do my own testing on every cell I buy, but most people won't...so that makes it very important that they buy only the highest quality cells.

"[/b]Will the battery carrier be any larger in the FF4 to provide a little more room for protected cells so the wrappers don't get torn?[/b]"

With the FF3 I didn't find the width to be a problem at all (as was the case with the Magic Scorpion)...only the length and only if you wanted to use protected cells.
