Leave everything intact if the light it function well. Drop a mail for their customer service if you wish to have a replacement for the worn off screw(s). As for the ss bezel, i believe they have applied some threadlocker for second batch on wards. Quite a few owners have mentioned in previous post.

Does anyone have a source for the Torx screws that go into the countersunk holes in the brass ring that holds down the driver? One of mine came stripped and loctited, so things got messy during removal and now I’m down to two screws only. Maybe having only two screws is fine, but I’d like to get even pressure distribution on the driver, if possible. Speaking of difficulties. Have others found the bezel easy to remove? Mine had red loctite and I needed a vise and strap wrench for removal.

 


They are using this.

Does anyone know what Nichia 219C is used in v2? I hope it is RA9050 SM503.

Sweet. Thanks for the Nichia info Freeme! But I can’t tell if it is a RA503 or something. Is this a 5000k LED? What CRI? I think it says it’s a D260, meaning 260lm @ 700mAh but I can’t tell if it’s 5000k. I also think it says it’s a SM505 making it white as per the picture. I’m not sure how to tell exactly what color temp of white it’s referring to. I’ll be getting my MF-01 Nichia version next week to go with my XP-G3!

I think I figured it out.

It must be a 5500K color temperature.

Digging up some specs from Nichia’s website says:

SM505

x 0.3447
y 0.3553
a 0.005925
b 0.014030
Ø -31.78

Reference

Referencing the MacAdam color space chart with these numbers seems to show it is 5500k If I’m reading it correctly.

I still don’t know what the CRI is though.

Here’s the best I could reference color tints. Sadly there is no sm505 to reference.

My MF01 (V2) had the bezel thread glued.
I had to use a belt tool to loosen it.
Luckily there was little glue, it was transparent.

I had very little amount of thermal paste.

The torx of the driver seems to be glued also.
I destroyed the heads.
Could someone tell me screws size?
TIA

Thanks for the correction. Would you say the tint looks more like the SM503 shown in the flashlight beam comparison I posted?

Cool, thanks. I dig that tint. Not too far away from NW and not too far from CW. That’s my perfect tint preference balance without getting too yellow or blue!

It’s actually about 5000k according to Mauuka’s test.

Today i received my MF-01 head i sent to Lexel for modding…
OMG! 13k+ Nichia lumen at startup on fresh 30Qs!
I wonder whether i could fry an egg… LOL

Glad i now have Narsil and ramping to handle this huge amount of light.
The GITD tape inside the optic is a nice touch too. Wink

@Lexel: great work! Thumbs Up

Now that I have the Nichia 219c version, It’s time to compare the two!

XP-G3 Variant Left – Nichia 219c Variant Right

XP-G3 Variant Left – Nichia 219c Variant Right

XP-G3 Variant Left – Nichia 219c Variant Right

XP-G3

Nichia 219c

This is my first Nichia 219c based light. I can totally see why people dig the Nichia LED. The tint at 5000K is definitely the sweet spot. I love both lights to tell you the truth, but yeah, the Nichia looks sweet!

I just don’t know the CRI % of the Nichia. I think the Cree is 70%

Wow thanks for posting these pics. Very useful! I was hoping the nichia 219c would be a little warmer than that. There’s not much difference in tint judging from your side by side pic. I’m still on the fence of whether to buy this because I have the Haikelite MT09R preordered but I do want a high powered nichia high cri flood light.

To be honest it seemed just only slightly less bright to me. It is noticeable but if I had to pick I think I like the Nichia a little more. It’s a tossup really. I love both of the lights. I’d totally recommend having both of them at the outstanding discounted group buy price. Full price I’d say just the Nichia. I will most likely alternate between the two so I can have the best of both worlds.

I love both of the lights equally overall.

The only thing I kinda don’t like is the very short turbo time. I know it’s because of heat but.. man they are amazing on turbo!

I think for the price it’s at right now, I’d say go get the Nichia. I think you would love it. Colors look more natural with the Nichia as seen with the fan pics.

I only owns the Nichia version so i can’t tell the difference… but i can say it looks like sunlight in the middle of the night. Not just the massive output, but the way things look. They don’t seem to be illuminated by an artificial light of some kind. It just looks like plain daylight – maybe a bit late afternoonish. I’d guess that’s what all the craze with Nichia leds is about. You wont know until you see it for yourself. Who cares about a couple k lumens when you have this kind of mojo. Wink

I posted this in the modding thread, but figured I’d share here as well. I modded the MCPCB and installed Lexel’s driver with Narsil. This thing is a monster! Smile

Oh YES! Party
Before the mod i was measuring barely 8k lumen – on a rough conservative ceiling bounce/luxmeter test, now it’s 13k+ at startup.
It remains to be seen how it handles the heat and current over time. I don’t plan to torture test it. I’m just glad to have the extra power. I’ll certainly be cautious using turbo. Big Smile

Edit: looking at the picts i’m wondering whether something is biased… That MF-01 shot seems too over exposed compared to the Q8… I’ll shoot them again. Flat Stare

That TA driver is awesome. But what is the practical max lumens setting to use on that driver that won’t step down?

Any discount codes left for this? I am a member over at M4DM4X’s site, but the codes there don’t work.
also, all the old codes freeme has sent months ago are now invalid. Anything left?
If so, would like the XP-G3 version, and send codes! Smile
