 From what ive seen these lanterns will cost around $50 USD each if thats correct. So thats around $74 Australian each for me.

 Can anyone tell me how much in USD i will be saving by ordering them on here now compared to the normal price they will be when on the   market for the public ??  wondering if i should order another one now or wait till sometime in the future.

 Thanks..

I don’t think anyone knows what the future pricing will be so if it were me I’d just place my order based on what was needed rather than wait and hope for a lower price.

The group-Buy here will be the best discount for the new lantern, as the retail price after will likely be higher.

Here are the additions for this week and the files linked in post #1 have been updated. Kudos to everyone for getting us up to 2,000 lanterns!!! The number to the left of each name is just a sequence number that is automatically attached to each addition into my table. However some users are no longer active so that accounts for the difference between the current active count of 2,000 and what were the total adds (active members plus non-active members).

Thanks

How difficult is it to access the MCPCB if I want to switch out the 3000K LED with a 2700K for instance?

After some restless nights of ‘deciding’ after finding this thread on Reddit, I finally made an account to post that I would be interested in TWO lanterns!

Is it already settled which LEDs are used in the production model? If I remember correctly the latest plan was to use Samsung LH351D Leds for 5000K and Luminus SST-20 for 3000K, is that still correct?

@DBSAR:

can you give us details on the dimensions of the LED pcb? I want Clemence to make an aftermarket version of it for Nichia E21A LEDs (better tint and greater range of CCTs).

Is the final emitter choice the LH351D 3000K and 5000K? Just wondering if it can be changed to the 2700K, which has less greenish tint than the 3000K?

I believe they were able to get the 3000K in the numbers they needed fro production, unsure about the 2700K. ( i can check to confirm)

Great news! Time for everyone to get their orders in and if you haven’t already done so to check that your name is valid on one of the files linked post #1.
