If you haven’t seen it, you can read the emitter & color temp Poll results under “Old News”…. toward the bottom of the OP (post #1). Smile

Cree XP-L HI was first & Samsung LH351D was second.

5000K took first place for color temp.

As far as what the actual offering(s) will be… it has not been announced yet to my knowledge.

FWIW, what I recommended to Lumintop is:

  • XP-L HI 3D (~4875K)
  • LH351D 4000K 90CRI

This covers the two hottest points in the vote result graphs, and I’m hoping they’ll make both.

It would probably be better if they could do LH351D in 4500K, but that doesn’t exist. So, 4000K seems to be the closest option. Also, XP-L HI comes in either ~4875K or ~5125K, not exactly 5000. So of the two, I recommended the one which was more popular.

The 3500k LH351D at least from what I’ve seen online is practically a grail LED for me, with 4000k not far behind. I’d love to see the LH351D in 4000k make the cut. Big Smile

Put me down for one.

Been following this project for a while, and seems like a more practical D4 (fewer accidental activations due to the tail switch), and I want something with the LH351D.

Thank you, but I’m afraid there are some mistakes.
I’ve been checking from the beginning,
I don’t know if I will before the group buyout closes.
If it happens, I’ll be sorry for those who applied and are not on the list.
Greetings.

Between the two proposed emitter options, you mean?

  • XP-L HI 3D: Throwier/narrower beam, “daylight” color
  • LH351D 4000K: Floodier/wider beam, halfway between “daylight” and “warm white” color

I meant to update the list before leaving for my trip, but I ran out of time. However, when I return, I plan to check everything since my previous update… which will probably catch any errors if there are any.

Your welcome. Don’t worry… you are doing a fantastic job. If someone asked and did not check to make sure they were on the list… that is their fault. You have asked them to do this.

Just keep up the good work. Smile

The XPL HI has a narrower beam with worse vividness / color accuracy and a tint much like the average ‘daylight white’ led you may have seen. It also costs 20% more – up to $36 from $30. The LH351D has a wider beam with very good color quality and a warmer tint than the other. Still closer in tint to most daylight leds than it is to an incandescent or many ‘warm white’ leds.

You forgot to mention that the XPL HI’s beam, while narrower is also much more intense. The beam with XPL HI will throw further (illuminate things at a distance better).

Good point Firelight2. Thumbs Up
This light is also speced to use a Carclo Narrow Spot Frosted TIR (10511) Optic, (as mentioned in post #1).
So, as has been mentioned before: While the polls #1 choice, the XP-L HI; may well “throw” a bit further…. it is far from a ‘thrower’ as used in this light.

Looking forward to it.
