About to order mine. Quick question. Any concerns on ordering a Q30 cell from the seller? I know everyone is always cautious with these.

No concerns here.

Just get a 30Q from Neal if you want one included with your light.

I’d say Arrow is your best bet. Prices are low and shipping is free.

The first batch of PMs is complete. Everyone on the first list should have a message now, except for Garth and Paradise, who have private messages disabled.

I’m updating the list for batch 2 now, and then the list will be closed.

The interest list is now closed, with KawiBoy1428 as the very last request.

The final total for BLF’s list is 1670 people, 2479 lights.
(this includes people who signed up then cancelled, so the actual number is slightly lower)

The second batch of messages will start in just a moment, with a much shorter delay between so they should all arrive within an hour.

If you have already received a private message with the purchase details, you won’t get a message in the second batch even if you requested more items. Simply use the coupon from the first message to order the items you requested.

(for example, KawiBoy1428 was at the beginning of the list and the end, so a second message won’t be sent)

Admirable, but no need to worry. You only ordered what you were on the list for. They will make plenty of them.

Okay great thanks Blushing

Correct me if i’m wrong, but sst20 and xpl hi are the same footprint? A straight swap with no resistor changes is possible?

… and now all messages have been sent.

Except for three people who have private messages turned off: Garth, Paradise, and USA. I don’t have a way to notify you, so … hopefully you’ll see this?

Oh, I understand now.

The 1st orders will be shipped before May 1st, as this is when Labour Day festivities start.

And so, the rest of the orders will be shipped after May 8th.

Smart move IMO.

Searching around on Google I found the below angles (not official):

The 10511 is called a narrow spot. 22°
The 10508 is called a medium spot. 27°
The 10509 is called a wide spot. 40°
All of the above are frosted.

The 10507 is the non-frosted, clear version with a narrow spot. 18°

I think it’s fair to say that the angles might vary a little based on which emitter is under them. So I would view the above angles as a loose reference guide.

Quick question, I'm hesitating on two scenarii mainly:

  • Buy one 7A now, buy an SST20 when released. Will the BLF code still be alive by that time? 
  • Just wait for CRI95. Will the BLF code still be alive by that time?

PS: is there a post dedicated to comparing SST20 and XP-L in a bit more details than 1st post? 

Rise and Shine my precious...
