Thanks for the suggestions CNCman. The K6 reflector is designed to fit inside the host with its particular geometry, so fitting any other thing inside requires careful selection.

Given the situation, I am @#$%. Can't help feeling like @#$% the whole thing altogether now. I wish I could re - coat the reflector easily. Jeez with this now.

Localized AliExpress links mess up with the language setting of whoever clicks or taps on them. While this is a fault of the AliExpress system, turning localized links into global links helps and is easy; just change the locale letters in the url for www. Example:

Hello Ban,

These new XHP35 HI batches are really nice additions. I have seen 40G 90CRI and 2B 80CRI already, but if you could get a 90CRI batch of them with one of these tint codes, that would be even better:
one of 4A, 4B, 3C, 3D, or one of 45G or 50G. These would be around 4500-5000K, and would make a super nice neutral white thrower.

Could you please consider it?

Special code “mid” does not work.

I made an order yesterday with the previous coupon code : sum (-10% off), try this one instead of mid.

BanL, I highly recommend you buy one of the following to test your LEDs so you know what you actually bought and if your suppliers are being honest with their labeled bins. Also if you can label your LEDs with the CCT, CRI, and tint (DUV), it would greatly help your customers buy with confidence and this will set your store apart from other LED stores online. Keep in mind many customers might not want to take gambles when buying emitters.

OHS350C ($779 same as above but with software to produce reports on computer)

I’m sure if you contact the company directly on their website, you can get some discounts.

I don’t buy emitters these days until they are proven by somebody here with at least a beamshot comparison. And I only but more than a sample emitter until I’ve tested it or someone posts spectral data. I can’t deal with much more than 0.0010 duv. Lee filters have saved many LEDs from the trash bin, but they’re not ideal. They scratch easily and cut a lot of lumens. This really should be a standard practice for any seller who claims a specific tint/CRI binning.

BanL, does this host use a pill or integrated shelf?

More pictures of this area would help anyone interested!

Hi JaredM

This is integrated shelf.

I too was intrigued and purchased one a few days ago. My intention to put in a White Flat 2mm^2 and Convoy SST40 driver (Link). Added a note regarding SMO reflector, hope they oblige.

“sum” works fine.

Is KD operating normally at the moment? I have three orders on “processed”, the oldest one for more than a month. Nothing shipped apparently and I don’t get replies to my emails either.

Just right now, I bet not because from October 1st to 7th (or 8th), it’s the golden week = China’s national holiday.

Even the website has holiday feelings. It’s down today.

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

And down again today. Sad

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I made an order (bare emitters (in stock)) on 1st Oct and shipped on 9th, so even with website down, things seem to resume pretty normally after the golden week/national holiday.

@BanL

 

Is this emitter available or not? 

http://kaidomain.com/Cree-XHP35-HI-Neutral-White-4000K-CRI90-LED-Emitter

 

Once placed in the cart it says it's out of stock but on the product page says different.

Hello Ban,

Same for me, I did also put it in the cart, but before checkout, even for one piece, the site showed a warning, that the quantity I need cannot be provided.

If this LED has been already sold out, then could you please get XHP35 HI C2 45G 4500K CRI90 for us? (If that is not possible, I will also buy 50G or 40G, but 45G would be the best, once you have new stock of this LED)

Even after checking the latest XHP35 datasheet (rev 2A), the highest bin listed for HI 4500K CRI90 emitters is B4, and 3-step MacAdam (45G) is not even listed, only 5-step or 45E (XHP35A-H0-0000-0D0UB445E order code).

So, unless you (and better if many others too) pray to God or ask God for these to be available, optimistically speaking I see very slim chances for that to happen.

Is there a 17mm boost driver for the XHP35 HI LED?

Well, fine, then 45E.

But if there were no C2 specified for 40G as well, probably we can hope, that for 45E, Ban also could find C2 with similar luck. (But I won't be sad even only, if it is just B4, just it needs to be 4500K and 90CRI for me.)

So I now received all three of my “processed” orders, two of them consolidated into one parcel. No reply to my emails about their status, and no update to “shipped” – hence also no tracking number.
I’m a bit surprised by the complete radio silence in the last two months, but very glad to see that KD is still operating normally apart from that!

BanL,


Recently I messed up  the reflector in my K6 host based flashlight, applied some alcohol over its surface and it @#$% the coating: 


 



 


Reflector height was measured at ≈50.1mm. Suffice to say, I couldn’t find a spare part replacement in your shop


Sent you a related private message here more or less recently, and also via your shop, but no answer yet. 


Hope all is fine with you and yours. In the meantime, I’d like to get one of the above. Thanks. 

It sure looks like the same reflector as a L2 or L21A, does it happen to be the same size?

Thanks for pinpointing this out. Just checked this L2 review by zeroair and indeed looks quite close. I'll drop him a line.

Indeed the numbers match, after all precisely measuring reflector height by hand with a caliper isn't exactly easy. I've also got 50.8mm figures, and the like.

A couple more pictures I made with some additional measurements just in case:

 

 

With the information already provided seems like indeed it is the same reflector used in the Convoy L2…
