Yes, 2000 lights with Yuji leds, half 3200K half 5600K, 1200 black, 500 red, 300 blue. That is the plan. Already 300x black is made, the rest will be later.

It has been an interest list to assure Sofirn there is demand for this light, and possibly to assist with the group buy. I don’t know if they are checking for usernames on the list before adjusting the price or not, but I do have you on the list.

The last update I saw on the potting seemed to indicate Sofirn still intended to include it, and the gooey potting in djozz’s test sample might just be slow curing.

I can’t get the address pulldown menu for region (USA) to show anything, so can’t get orders to complete.
Maddening.

Just one idea to try: If you have an ad blocker, try disabling that and refreshing the page. Sometimes ad blockers mistakenly stop legitimate 3rd party content.

I can’t 100% confirm at this time, but my understanding is all the lights will be potted, and all (including for group buy participants) will be through the Sofirn Ali Express site.

I will try to get some of this information summarized on the post for the group buy list, after I finish updating it.

So while we’re waiting for Ali to function, may I digress?

Is anyone selling these Yuji high-CRI emitters on 20mm copper boards for us swap-and-drop-in modders?
pointer please to any discussion elsewhere. Sorry for the off-topic interruption.

These are through hole LEDs, not normally mounted on copper boards.

Yuji apparently makes other LEDs. Here’s a maniacal guy showing a great big Yji emitter:

Whew! List is updated. That was a lot of new interest! We’re over 1000 lights now!

I slightly changed the format of the list to make it easier to read.

As before, note that I am not tracking anodizing color preferences, but you are welcome to specify desired colors in your post in case Sofirn checks the thread to help themselves decide how many of each to make.

Shortcut to the current list

I was originally on the list in spot #6 with 5 total. That would now look like 8 warm, 4 cool for a total of 12 lights.

If these LEDs are really discontinued, I might want to bump up my order. In Post 1237 I claimed 2 warms and 1 cool.

I’ll step that up to 3 of each CCT. Might make some nice gifts.

Nope, not too late. Just in case Sofirn is checking the list before adjusting prices, I’ve added you for 1 and can update if requested.

Actually already had you at post 297 for 2 × 3200K and 1 × 5600K.

As far as I know the driver/led cavities are potted.

When I confronted Barry with the gooey in my samples a few weeks ago, he was first quite shocked, then he went talking with the Sofirn engineers, then he assured that it was a very slow curing stuff that may take months to cure, then I showed a lot of doubt about that and suggested to look at two-component solutions, then he talked again with the engineers, then he told me not to worry and that the potting would be alright and that was the last I heard about the subject.

In the meantime, the gooey in my samples seemed to be hardened a bit more but still far from fully cured, and I do not know if they put the same stuff in the production lights and if it really will be hard and functional eventually.

In the meantime II, my and Sofirns torture tests of the sample lights have shown that even without functional potting the C01 can withstand quite extreme abuse while still staying fully functional.

That’s all I know about the status of the potting of the C01

OK Folks, HERE is the trick to the BLF pricing ….

Put items in your cart
Select ‘‘View cart’
Select ‘buy from this seller’
Enter BLF ID in the message to seller box
Choose Paypal
At Paypal login, do* NOT log in – bottom left of page .. click ‘cancel and return to merchant’

THIS triggers an order ID# to Sofirn, which will lead to your price adjustment

The frosting they put in there instead of potting is putting me off a bit.

My term for the non-hardening gooey stuff that they put in the heads of these lights. Frosting. Looks like it’s vanilla.
