Programming Instructions:
To switch mode groups: Turn on light for 2s then rapidly tap the switch 8 times, the light will then enter the programming mode and begin to flash. With the light in programming mode, tap the switch the same number of times as your desired mode group. The light will blink and your mode group will be memorized.

Example: To select mode group 3, tap the switch 8 times quickly to enter programming mode. As soon as the light enters programming mode and starts flashing, tap the switch three times (for group 3). The light will blink to recognize the mode group change.

"Turbo" Timer
A) 5 Minutes (Default)
B) Self Set Turbo Timer: Turn light on for 2s then rapidly tap the switch 8 times, the light will then enter the programming mode and begin to flash. With the light in programming mode, tap the switch 30 times to enter the turbo timer set mode. The light will then switch to 100% power. When the light is at the desired temperature for the turbo step down, turn the light off. The turbo timer will then be set. Maximum of 20 minutes. Setting a turbo timer below 4s disables it. It applies to all modes above 50% and smoothly ramps them down to 50%.

Low Voltage Protection
The firmware has low voltage protection, if the voltage drops below 3V, the brightness is reduced. That brings the voltage up again a bit, but if the voltage of the drained battery falls below that again, brightness is reduced again - and so on, down to a very low level. Low voltage step-down can be disabled by me if desire.

Battery Voltage Check
The blinking signal after 8 fast taps is actually a battery monitor, the number of blinks relates to battery voltage: One blink for each 0.1V above 3.0V, so 12 blinks is full, 3-4 blinks is quite empty.

*Mode Group are memorized even through battery changes
*It's almost impossible to accidentally change mode groups
*DriverVN Can take 1 li-ion cell for XPG2 or XML2 (~2.5-4.2V)
*DriverVN Can take 2 li-ion cell for XHP50, XHP70, MKR (~5V-8.4V)
*No memory = always resets to 1st mode after 1 second of being off.
*Memory = Always memorize last mode after 1 second of being off.

User Interface:


To Set a Mode Group

Configure the turbo timer
Enter config menu by 8 (or more) fast taps, wait for the blinking signal, then enter turbo config mode by the 20 taps. The light then runs at full power. Let it run for the desired time (e.g. until it gets hot; use a full battery), then tap to switch off. That time is now set for the turbo timer. Setting a time below 4 seconds disables it. The turbo timer has a maximum of ~20 minutes (this is also the default). It applies to all modes above 50% and smoothly ramps them down to 50%.

Low voltage protection:
Whenever the battery falls below 3V under load, brightness is reduced (about half). The reduced load usually brings up the voltage a bit. When it drops below 3V again, brightness is halved again - and so on, down to a very low level. It will not switch off and leave you in complete darkness though.
