What about the claimed "flicker" with the V4 on start up/down vs the V3??? Saw a video of this in another post........

That video was actually from the lock/unlock feature when the lights dim on/off. We unfortunately found out about this after we released the lights and arent able to compensate for this

Glad to hear that everyone is happy with these lights however and that everyone is finding they are brighter then before!

Is this something that will be rectified with time or future batches of V4 will still do this?

We need clarification. Now that you are aware of an issue, are you saying the problem will still not be fixed on all future v4 product being sold?

This is not an issue, just they way the lights have been designed. We do not have a way to resolve this. Also remember that the lights operate perfectly over 99% of the time

my angels eyes have instant on instead of soft on

it's easy to code out the soft on

I have V4s installed. Went thru settings between 6900k thru 12000k. Friends couldnt tell the difference either. I see no difference with the settings. It's a nice product, but I'd buy a used set of V3s if I could do it all over again. Sorry, but the changeable settings is marketing hype. Just my opinion.
