- Turbo mode: immediately switch to maximum output
- Battery check: one to four flashes
- Low voltage protection: flicker every 15 seconds if the voltage is low and short flashes if the voltage is critical
- Low voltage protection: flicker every 15 seconds if the voltage is low and turn off if the voltage is critical
- Mode memory: start with last frozen ramp value or with last fixed level (off-time memory)
- Stop at high: in ramping UI, stop if ramping reaches maximum output

### Beacon mode
Tap six times to enter beacon mode. In this mode the flashlights runs at low intensity and flashes every two seconds. Tap again to return to normal flashlight mode.
### Strobe mode
If users want a strobe mode, they usually want it for defence purposes. Thus it should be possible to enter it as fast as possible.
If strobe is enabled in the preferences, the flashlight always starts in a fast strobe mode. Then a single press of the power switch enters normal flashlight mode.
### Low voltage protection
If the voltage is below 3.2 V the flashlight will flicker for half a second every 15 seconds. If the voltage is below 2.7 V the light will turn off and flash regularly to notify the operator that the light is still turned on but the battery is empty.
