The NOV-MU flashlight features the advanced open-source user interface firmware, Anduril2. For full details of operation, please see the detailed manual: http://toykeeper.net/torches/fsm/anduril2/anduril-manual.txt
At the first glance of the UI , most fresh users will feel confused with the UI, But in fact , you can operate the light as easy as other common flashlights. Just in case you want to try more functions , you need to spend some time to read the manual . If you do not need the advanced features, just do not use it.
Anduril2 has two different operating user-interfaces.
1. Simple UI -- Stepped 5-mode ramping default （Easy to operate for all fresh users）
2. Advanced UI (need to spend some time to read the manual carefully to try more functions)
Enter advanced UI to unlock all the features available. It is simple to switch between Simple and Advanced UI.
Note: Anduril2 has the capability to adjust battery voltage correction and temperature calibration. The NOV-MU flashlight comes with 1% voltage accuracy and +-1C temperature accuracy from the factory and does not need to be calibrated by the user.
After insertion of the battery and screwing on the end cap, the light will blink quickly once to confirm that it is operational.
- Click once to turn the light on or off
- Hold the button while light is on to change brightness
- Release and hold to change brightness the other way
- Click and hold from off to turn on starting at lowest brightness, before ramping up
- Double click the button to turn on at highest brightness
- Battery check mode - three clicks - flashlight flashes battery voltage then turns off
More Advanced Functions
To access additional modes, switch to the Advanced UI . For pratical daily use, you do not have to access to the Advanced UI.
- Click ten times and hold the last click. The flashlight will flash once, indicating that it is now in advanced UI
- When in advanced UI, simply click ten times without holding the last click to transition back to simple UI.
Advanced UI has all the features of Simple UI, and increases brightness modes, allows access to all the features, and unlocks Turbo mode.
- There are two ways to access Turbo:
- From off, click twice and hold the second click - momentary turbo
- From on, click and hold to the top of the ramp. At the top of the ramp, double click to enter sustained turbo.
By default, the brightness ramp style is stepped 5-mode ramping.
- While the flashlight is on at any brightness level, click three times to switch from stepped ramping to smooth ramping.
- This ramp style is memorized and applies even when transitioning back to simple UI.
Electronic factory reset capability
There is 2 ways for factory reset, back to Simple UI by default
1.When the light is off, 13 clicks and hold , See blink signal , back to Simple UI
2. loose a bit the flashlight body, then hold the switch , re-connect the body to the head, see blink signal, back to Simple UI
The NOV-MU includes an intelligent on-board USB-C battery charger with safety interlocks. The NOV-MU charges at 2A, hence is it recommended to connect the NOV-MU to a USB charger source capable of supplying at least 2A.
- A built-in safety timer prevents extended trickle charging over 2 hours due to abnormal battery conditions. In case of this, the red switch LED blinks to indicate a battery fault
- When a USB-C cable is plugged into the NOV-MU, cyan LEDs l ight up the side switch to indicate that the power source is good.
- During charging, red LEDs also light up the side switch to indicate charging in progress. When charging is completed, the red LEDs will turn off. At completion, only the cyan LEDs will be left i lluminated. The red LED will blink if there is a fault in the charging system. Please only charge lithium-ion 21700 or 18650 batteries in the NOV-MU.
Note: The flashlight can be fully operated while being charged. However, it is recommended to only run the flashlight at low brightness levels, otherwise the battery will be discharged faster than it can be charged, and result in a charger timer lock-out.
