I had completely forgotten about AEDe!

He does sell 5000k 70CRI LH351Ds. Go check out his thread and send him a PM.

From what I can tell he doesn’t have them currently, but as I recall you have to buy 20pcs.

"Over 2000000 hours (about 200 years) standby time"  (DQG Tiny 4th)

"27,157 results for zoomable flashlight" (ebay)

He does not have them yet, but you don’t have to buy 20 of them.

Just buy 10 of them. They are the same price as the 90CRI 4000k, with higher forward voltage, but much more efficient.

OK thanks I’ll check with him.

1. Yeah, I’m going to be buying it, then swap the emitter.

And yes, if you see 3-9V, it means it is using a buck driver.

2. The best LED for pure raw output would be a 5000k 70CRI LH351D,as that is the most efficient single 3V LED on the market.

With a buck driver and a 2S driver, you will be getting the best constant output of a single 3V LED, at the cost of runtime compared to a 90CRI 219C due to a higher forward voltage.

With 2S and a buck driver running 3A output to a single LH351D, what would you estimate the max output to be? (5000k 70CRI version)

You would be getting about 1260 lumens.

Wow, thanks. That is great for a 3v LED light that’s not run by direct drive!

So the output of a buck driver would be considered a “fully regulated” ?

Yes, as long as you have a 2S a sufficiently high input voltage to maintain regulated output.

And I ordered 3 independent emitters for 3,19$ each few days ago…
Oh well Facepalm

EDIT : Please KD, could you stock the High CRI version of the SST-20 ?
It’s called SST-20 WxH, here is the datasheet

"Hey -X3-, do you have a flashlight ?"   "-X3-, can I borrow one of your flashlights ?" 

My Flashlight public album (mods, emitter swaps, eye candy)

I second this. Pretty cool. Tightly binned 2700/3000/3500/4000Ks too (if  available).

Someone should send one or two to koef3 for testing.

@ KD, please get the A120 footprint version which is XP-compatible. Like SST-20-W35H-A120-J4352

I have 10 coming in (from AE). If he’s up for testing them, I’ll likely send a couple to Texas_Ace since he’s here in the states. It’d probably be a bit more costly for me to send them internationally.

Mmm, a few hours ago I had to handle the FedEx shipping guy €29.23 in custom duties for a €33.24 order from the Facepalm states. Grrr $uck$…

I specifically mentioned koef3 because he actually tests the luminance.

I did send him a PM and offered to send him a couple, but I’m guessing it would be more cost effective for you, George, right? (Since you’re in Europe) And they’d likely get there faster. Either way, we’ll make sure these get tested.

Hi Ban,
I see on your website that the payment system is worked on (so I sent an email for an order). Do you have any idea when the website is restored?

Yes. I believe that is due to 12% import duty + 21% IVA (VAT) + whatever FedEx charges you for the paperwork.

In the meantime I've got informed and now I know I can avoid that by staying below €22 per order shipping excluded.

That sure puts a crimp in your choices keeping it under 22 euros. Maybe that is a good thing? Cash

You can usually get most seller to write a dodgy amount on the box. I have items worth like 20-30 AUD and the seller will quote like 5AUD.

 I bought this: http://www.kaidomain.com/p/S025680.Nichia-CRI92-NVSW219BT-V1-5700K-LED-Emitter-with-14_5mm-x-1_5mm-Aluminum-PCB-5pcs

 

Not so great of a deal compared to the LH351B that I bought from AEDe but in case anyone wants to try them they're not that bad dedomed. The CRI doesn't really matter when its tint is so white IMO.

 

Not bad, but not great either.
