I thought I read something about the Nichia 219B SW45K LED on the previous PL47 (gen 1) and the newer PL47 (gen 2), and I think it also affects the other newer “gen 2” flashlights like the ROT66 (gen 1 & gen 2, Nichia 219B SW45k).

I have the PL47 gen 1 (Nichia 219B SW45k R9080). Also purchased the PL47 gen 2 (Nichia 219B SW45k), but comparing beamshots of the 2, the PL47 gen 2’s Nichia 219B appears to have a slight bluish or purplish hue/tint? What could be the cause of that? I notice they use different TIR optic for gen 1 vs gen 2.

(Note: in the beamshots below, the 2 lights may not be set at exactly the same brightness levels.. ;
the PL47 gen 2 (right side) has a slight bluish/purplish tint that doesn’t appear present on the PL47 gen 1)

Left side is PL47 gen 1 (219B SW45K) ; Right side is PL47 gen 2 (219B SW45k)

Probably just slightly different binning (could also happen in damaged emitters but your shots don’t look out of the ordinary). Some have also speculated the Gen I ROT66 and PL47 actually had sw45 in some units instead of sw45k, the latter is more rosy.

My Gen I PL47 actually looked much rosier than other 219B lights I’ve had and the beamshots other owners posted of their PL47s too, but cameras often don’t match reality so who knows.

Received mine w/ 219B from Banggood today, ordered on Nov. 1. The tracking they gave me was never scanned and was different than what was on the package. I used expedited UPS shipping to US. Tracking shows it shipped from Canada.

The tint on mine is very slightly blue/purple compared to my 219C 4000k lights, it makes them look yellow. I think the tint is pleasant but I haven’t used it outdoors yet. I don’t have any other 219B’s to compare to.
