Group Buy: Wuben TO10R and TO46R (real 90+CRI triple XP-G3) - CLOSED!!

Group Buy: Wuben TO46R and TO10R

 

Here's your opportunity to buy these nice dual switch, real 90+CRI* 5000K, USB-charging lights for a nice price.

*) Samples were CRI-tested by maukka and passed the test! See post #78 for details.

 

I negotiated a price that is too good to be mentioned publicly, but is significantly less than the list price $49.99/$45.99 and includes a free 18650/16340 cell and free shipping! PM me for the exact price.

Limited to 100 + 100 pieces (100 pcs for each model).

GB ends 2018-04-07 or as soon as we reach 100 pcs. Please make sure you are on the list before that!

I will PM the payment details only to the members on the lists. This will happen during 2018-04-08.

Lights will be paid directly to Wubenlight (by Paypal) and shipped via China post.

 

Is anyone interested? Smile

 

Please indicate which one you want (TO46R or TO10R) and how many.

 

Update 2018-04-02: Also emitter boards now available for $5, including the board + 3 x XPG3 90CRI 5000K. (Shipping $12 if not purchased together with a light). Limited to 100pcs, giving priority to persons buying lights.

Update 2018-04-08: Purchase period has now started. Please pay before Friday the 13th! PM me if you haven't got payment instructions yet.

Update 2018-04-13: Feels like Friday the 13th for sure.. cry There are still major problems sourcing the emitters. Both Wuben and me are working hard to find a good source for 5000K emitters (preferably Nichia), but so far without success. cry Because of these problems, the payment deadline is extended to "one week after" we have solved the problems.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the situation and try to wait patiently!

On the other hand, threatening me/Wuben with PayPal or Credit card company disputes makes me feel (even more) sad and is totally unnecessary. Just send me a PM if you want to bail out. A full refund will be issued in a short time. [In the absolutely worst case I may have to buy all unclaimed lights, but I think I can live with it]

Update 2018-04-27: CREE 5000K 90+CRI now confirmed! Lights should be ready around May 21st. There are still some left from our 100+50 pcs reservation => PM me if you'd like to join or reserve more.

Update 2018-05-22: First lights are coming out of the factory and the samples will be shipped to me tomorrow morning. No lights will be shipped before samples are tested. If you haven’t paid the lights you reserved, please do so before next Monday! Anyone can still join the GB and existing participants can reserve more lights. PM me to make the reservation.

Update 2018-05-30: Samples have been approved by maukka and all GB lights are ready to ship! Have you paid yours already? If not, please do so at latest on this week's Saturday (2018-06-02)!

Update 2018-06-11 22:00 UTC: Wuben just set a hard deadline for this GB: Everyone must make their orders / finish their payments in the following 24h. After that, all unclaimed lights will be shipped to me. (No exceptions, no payments after that deadline!)

Update 2018-06-13: This GB is NOW CLOSED! All payments after this date will get rejected, so please don't bother anymore (even if you have a reservation that you haven't paid yet)

How do we know it is NW 5000k, did someone report this in a test? If so where? I would hate to buy it to find out it is CW because Maukka tested it before and found out it was CW 70CRI. Also http://budgetlightforum.com/node/59309 shows it as cold blue in the tint comparison.

If this is really NW 5000k, I would be interested in two but not really interested in the 18650 batteries since I have a bunch of panasonics and Sony cells. The included one is probably not a high quality cell.

This is real 5000K, 90+CRI and will be tested by maukka before collecting any payments. You can buy with confidence.

I have to check the cell. Earlier Wuben cells have been of good quality, but better to check anyways.

Ok sounds good. I would be confident if it will be tested by Maukka. I am interested in 1 of each or more as gifts if it turns out nice. Thanks.

Maukka has already tested it. http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1238748#comment-1238748. I sent him my TO46R mcpcb and emitter board, and swapped mine out with a triple nichia 4000k on a Noctigon board. (I’m CaptRon25 on reddit)

As far as the light itself, I thought the stock light was quite nice, just a bit on the cool side for my taste, and the host is very well machined, and only the battery tube to the head is glued, the rest is not. It’s one of my favorite lights right now.

The stock one was tested by Maukka at 6,170k for the frosted and 7,069k for the lightly frosted which is extremely cold. I think the said the latest revision will be 5000k (pending Maukka’s review). triple nichia 4000k in a usb rechargeable light sounds sweet!

Oh ok. 5000k would be really nice. Even the cooler temp version isn’t bad at all IMO. And yes, the triple nichia 4000k 90+ cri is outstanding in this light, albeit not quite as bright.

This beamshot is with the stock emitters
