Main blade is 2-greens and foc/lockup adds a 3rd green. The config files have the default settings of: led=700,0,0,0 fled=700,700,0,0 lled=700,700,300,0
Since the led=700 setting lights up the 2-greens for the blade, I figure they are wired together. Is it safe to raise the values to the following and remove the 300? led=1000,0,0,0 fled=1000,1000,0,0 lled=1000,1000,0,0
If I wanted full power mode for the blade, is it safe to do the following? led=1000,1000,0,0
I wouldn't suggest making any adjustments to the drive settings unless you really know the saber inside and out. There are a lot of variables there. If the default settings are 700 rather than 1000 then it probably has Rebel led's in it that shouldn't be driven any harder. The FOC pad may be running a high wattage smd resistor that's not meant to be running all the time due to heat dissipation issues. The battery might trip at higher settings, stuff like that. Fun settings to play with are shimmer and pitch shift. I just wouldn't risk messing up a nice saber by overdriving the leds accidentally.
the saber description listed the led as a Tri-cree xpe2. I will not mess with making the main blade full power--GGG. I leave it as is. If the Tri-cree xpe2 can go higher then I would like to adjust it? Thanks.
If the two greens really are parallel on channel 1 they should be able to take 2000, but really depends if the battery can too.
If it's 7.4v, they'd normally be run in series. If it was hacked to 3.7v, they're normally individually addressed. Running two greens in parallel off of the current regulator seems odd to me. What battery is in it? A normal 7.4v setup would be the two greens in series on channel 1 and one green for FOC on channel 2 or 3. In which case channel 1 could be set to 1000. The FOC channel could be run at 1500 if it has the proper resistor. Does the saber have RICE? That would tell you if they're individually addressable or not. Again, lots of variables here that could potentially harm your saber. Based off of the initial settings, I wouldn't go any higher than 1000 on channel 1. I can't imagine anyone would send out a saber with the led's underdriven that much.
