Nightwatch NI40 with Osram S2WP - coming soon at Neals

Neal sent me photos ( and also an incoming light ) of his newest Nightwatch NI40 but with a new OSRAM led, the S2WP.
The current page in Neal’s site of the NI40: Nigthwatch NI40 (the S2WP not yet included )


Compare its KCD to the other leds, not bad throw and lumen output combination at all!


————————————————————————- the NI40 in between the NA40 (top) and the long throw Flat-White-equipped IRA-lite series.

The Osram LED on ethe picture is not a white LED, maybe a blue or a green one (there is no yellow phosphor on it).

True, then the lighting of the pic must be very weird (or it's a photoshopped pic).

Anybody have more info on this new emitter? From that pic I would make a hot take that it’s basically 4 white flats on a single chip much like an XHP.

If those output/throw numbers are accurate there could be some CANNONS made with it. Wonder what kind of numbers it would get in an L2…

It’s quad q8wp, one generation behind white flat.

3V as well I’m guessing? I’d like to see what it can do in a 26650 tube-style light like the S11, would have a pretty useful beam profile and some serious output it seems.

That super cold color temp is a bummer though.

If I remember correctly, all dies are driven separatrly so you can configure it to go from 3v to 12v.

In search of the most ideal flashlight in town:
1. BRIGHTNESS
2. Durabillity
3. Design
4. Quality

I really love how Nightwatch offers the best leds around. Dedomed sst-40. Sliced and diced xhp50.2. S2wp. White Flat. Nearly all the best choices out there.
At the same time I really really miss good e-swich ui…….and I so dislike the bulk added by tail clicky…

More thoughts:

  • S2WP is rated for 65W. It should have much more potential.
  • I’m no longer sure whether it’s based on 2 mm² White Flat or Q8WP
