Being able to solder let’s you do a lot more stuff. It’s a good thing to learn. There are lots of videos on youtube.

Maybe you have a friend nearby that solders?

If possible, practice on some junk boards first. It’s a good way to get a feel for soldering without any real risk or consequences.

after receiving the E07, I realized that my ROT66 somehow has different programming? I can’t get to turbo, only to the top of the ramp.

For example, it should to go the top of the ramp when I double click, then another 2x click to turbo. But on the ROT66, it goes to strobe when I do the 2nd double click, not turbo.

How can i get turbo back?

I’m guessing your E07 uses Anduril and your ROT66 uses NarsilM. You might want to check this.

Is it an old ROT66 before the AUX LED's in the head? If so, might be NarsilM. Once the AUX LED's were added, they went to Anduril, I believe.

I think you are right…It’s running NarsilM. I have aux leds in mine.

What made me post about it is that my E07 is much brighter than my ROT66. I have HG2 in the ROT66 and 40T for the E07.

A 40T pulls about 20-24 amps in the E07 with SST-20 4000K's. The HG2 probably can't compete with that, and depends on the LED's you have in the ROT66.

Forgot to mention…both have the same XP-L HI 5000k.

Does anybody know which version of Anduril the SST-20 versions use? Is it the reduced current 219 version or the full current one?

Somebody take a look and tell me if I’m dreaming or if the 219B version really is in stock again:

I also see the Nichias listed for the E07, but not the PL47.

I noticed that as well. If the copper E07 has all the QC issues worked out I may have to pick one up. Thumbs Up

I know this is an old question, but it should use the standard version for 14 × 7135 chips.

If you’re asking about the version for the D4 and D4S with 219C emitters that reduces the FET channel output to a maximum of 80%, my understanding is no, neither version of Anduril for the ROT66 does this.

Fireflies thanks for the great deal!

I tried to order a N219B ROT66 way back in January but after 6 weeks just cancelled my order.

I already ordered one last night right before bed at the new discounted price! That’s an amazing deal! Big Smile

ROT66 will get minor changes for next batch, model number should stay the same

Battery carrier gets changed to battery tube plus contact ring like Q8 or SP36

Does Fireflies have a new batch of 219B to use in the ROT and other lights or are we still just getting the dregs of the original batch?

I think it’s a new batch.

I think the original batch were the 98CRI versions and the second wave are 95CRI versions.

if you check their website they indicate the specifics of the 219Bs they have now

The information on their site is just a general description of the sw45k 219B, nothing about binning or any difference from a previous batch. “CRI 95” is just an estimate based on how R9080 usually measures.

The 219B versions of their lights went out of stock for a while, and only came back in stock in the last month or so. That makes me think they sourced more.

There have been a couple comments elsewhere on this or some other forum claiming Nichia would run batches of the 219B if a customer ordered enough of them, but no source was given.

However, there also was a period of time where I could not find the 219B product page or datasheet on Nichia’s website. Now I can find it with no more difficulty than typing “219b” into their product search. I wonder if that is a sign Nichia is being pretty open about taking orders for the 219B.

Nichia removed the white 219B data sheet when it was discontinued; the ones you are finding are for the coloured versions (e.g. amber, blue, etc.) they still officially produce.

same, either they are sold and they have not changed to preorder or the rev. 2 is in short time ready to ship

but still the actual product desciption says they are selling the lights they had at first sorted out because the anodising fab did not a good job on all parts

Does anybody have any tips on getting one of the original ones open? I’m trying to access the driver to flash and everything seems glued.
