Yeah, it is possible we could do some “local group buys” to save on shipping.

I could handle a US based group buy, assuming I have the funds available at that point in time. It would drop the shipping cost per order from $10 – $20 to around $3 per order, much more reasonable.

I was able to get 5 sw505, M600, L2 Nichia NWSW229AT’s from the North American distributor. I’ll throw some pictures up tonight when I get home – but does anyone have the ability and desire to test them? Yours if you want them.

Edit: only 70 CRI, so nothing fancy on that end, but should give us an idea as to how the 229A’s perform.

I can test the lumen output / forward voltage but not the CRI. Although I do not have any MCPCB’s that it would work on.

You can use anything like Djozz/Virence/119 with 2 pads style board. The bridge width is the same @ 0,5mm.

Yeah, yours or the djozz boards would work but I don’t have any of them on hand Wink

It is not worth ordering them just for a single LED due to shipping costs but I could order some down the road with another order.

229A predictably doesn’t really look any different than a 119C, and it’s sort of odd they abandoned the 1xx nomenclature for two pad, 2xx for three pads. Wonder if the die is the same size?

Seems they’re only available in standard 70 CRI only
