Emisar D4v2: Setting Ramping Mode Brightness Memory

This page refers to features of Anduril 1.
Looking for the Anduril 2 manual?

When you first turn on the Emisar D4v2, the flashlight is set to the same level every time. Even after changing the brightness, after you turn it Off with a Click, when you turn it back on with another Click, you’ll be brought back to the original brightness. This is the Manual Memory setting for Ramping Mode.

You can also setup the ramp to remember the last brightness you used as well with Automatic Memory.

Setting the brightness to be the same as the last time you turned it Off (Automatic Memory)

To setup Ramping Mode’s memory to be set to Automatic Memory:

  1. Turn on the light into Ramping Mode (1 Click from Off). The light should be on now.
  2. Hold to increase or decrease the brightness of the light to your desired level.
  3. 5 Clicks, but hold the last click will activate Automatic Memory and save the current brightness.
  4. The light will make a quick flash to confirm that you’ve set the memory.

Setting the brightness to be the same every time you turn it on (Manual Memory)

If you would rather always have the same brightness when you turn on the D4v2, you can switch back to Manual Memory.

To setup your Ramping Mode’s memory to be set to Manual Memory:

  1. Turn on the light into Ramping Mode (1 Click from Off). The light should be on now.
  2. 5 Clicks will activate Manual Memory.
  3. The light will make a quick flash to confirm that you’ve set the memory.

Which is better?

I personally prefer Automatic Memory. It’s easy enough with the ramping interface to be able to quickly move from Ceiling to Floor. That said, if you last turned it to Off at a higher brightness, you could accidentally blind yourself. Hey, but we all know the risks of owning a bad-ass flashlight. If you can’t handle it, keep it in Muggle Mode.
