[GB ended, news update only] Last batch of 219B sw45k R9080 and sw40 R9080

UPDATE 180723:

All orders except those with additional special request, shipped today.

-------

UPDATE 180714:

- All non XP16 orders dropped at the post office today. The tracking numbers will follow tomorrow.

- XP16 orders processing will start tomorrow (received the XP16 from Hank yesterday)

--------

UPDATE 180711:

Most of the orders shipped today. I'm a bit overwhelmed by this GB and the store orders at the same time, so please bear with me. How to track your order:

  • Check if the status HERE, if its green highlighted as "packed & shipped" then....
  • PM me for your tracking number. It's too confusing for me to email one by one because of the username and real Paypal names involved.
  • RRxxxxxxxxxxID = Registered Economy, EExxxxxxxxxxID = EMS

 -----

UPDATE 180630:

Packet delivered!

-----

UPDATE 180629:
Packet released from the custom

-----

UPDATE 180625: 

Items shipped from JPN to ID

-----

UPDATE 180621:
Payment to Nichia sent. Order processed, Nichia will update the shipment date soon

-----

UPDATE 180611:
Because of Optisolis shortage my PO could not be processed (PO combined with these 219Bs). There's also long national holiday in Indonesia (Idul Fitri) from 1806(11-21). The PO will be processed after 180621.

-----

UPDATE 180605: PO already sent to Nichia early at 180604, 17:00, GMT +8. Included in the PO was 1400 pcs of 219Bs (700 pcs each). I will transfer the money by 180607 (Paypal needs 2 working days for the money transfer). 

-----

UPDATE 180604: The GB will ends in 180604, 24:00, GMT+8

I will stop taking order beyond that time. You can purchase the LEDs later via the store (if there's any leftover)

 

---------------

ORIGINAL POST

---------------

Friends,

 

As I mentioned months ago, perhaps some of you knew it already. These LEDs are now officially discontinued from Nichia website. But my friend in Nichia told me there are few hundreds left. I don't have the need for these LED unlike most tint snobs here. I received lots of PM about getting them back to the store. I don't want to overstock them hence this group buy.

We have to meet at least 400pcs order of both sw45k and/or sw40. The price will be USD 2,8/pc in this group buy. After that it will get back to the normal USD 4 via my store.

I will keep the GB open for 14 days. Lead time is 3-5 working days, 3 days delivery from JPN to ID, 5-14 ID days custom clearance, 4 - 26 days delivery to your address (vary by chosen shipping service).

 

Shipping

International economy service: USD 5

International economy service to middle east countries: USD 5 (listed as red zone for unreliable delivery by Indonesia postal service). No warranty/insurance.

International EMS: send me PM for shipping cost

Domestic economy service: USD 2

To save shipping cost and time. You can arrange your own local group buy with your local friends and use faster EMS service (last month it was as fast as 3 days from ID to US!)

 

This is a committed GB so you have to pay in advance. I'll put paid orders in the listing here (down below). In any case the minimum 400pcs can't be met, I'll refund your money.

 

Payment method

International: Paypal virence.cle@gmail.com

Indonesia: Paypal or bank transfer to BCA 2821123315 (USD 1 = IDR 14.000)

 

Thanks,

Clemence

No, just wire the money directly to my Paypal address above using “pay for goods and service”. Don’t forget to include the order message. You can’t purchase it via the store, there’s none there.
I’ll update the listing daily

Why do people prefer the 219B to the 219C? Does the 219B have a better tint but lower efficiency?

It has way better tint and 9080. 219C only go up to 9050 and have yellowish/greenish tint compared to the 219B. I have over a dozen 219C 90CRI flashlights and their tint is not bad but not stellar.

219Cs do go up to R9080.

They are even rarer than 219Bs R9080.

9050 is the minimum. Actual measurement (by Maukka) 219C sm503 showed 9080. Slight difference from the actual measurement of 219B SW45K at 9797. The huge difference is the CCT & tint combination. Nichia doesn’t make 4500K 219C 9050

Paypal sent for 4 sw45k and some other things from the store. I did not know if I should place an order and refer to that or just note what my order would have been, so I just wrote my order in paypal.

PM me your PayPal name. Couldn’t find anyone with combined payment for this GB and store purchases.

I’ll save some for you later if you want to. You don’t have to buy them right now. Seriously, how many pcs to keep?

I found sm453 in the 219C Nichia doc:
http://www.nichia.co.jp/specification/products/led_spec/NVSL219CT-E(3484F)R70%20R8000%20R9050.pdf

Only bummer is, that it is just available in R8000, not in R9050. It is weird, because they offer R9050 in sm503, and sm573, too - I don't understand, why they don't make it in sm453.

I’ll take 12 SW45K + $5 shipping. $38.60 sent via PayPal. Thumbs Up

I also need some MCPCBs. Is it possible to bundle a shop order and have everything ship together?

Should I specify what I want from the shop and send another PayPal payment now? I only need a couple MCPCBs and perhaps a few more emitters. Will the $5 shipping still be enough?

Should be fine without additional shipping cost. Yup, just send the additional order via PayPal’s move

Payment sent for 8pcs SW45K + 8pcs SW40, and international economy shipping – Thanks!

I’ve enjoyed the tint of my 219C swapped lights, looking forward to trying some of the famous 219B.
