[NEW] RovyVon E300S - Triple XP-G3 flashlight - 2000 Lumens - Unusual body shape

Yesterday I found these videos from the new RovyVon Flashlight!
Quite different from what we are used to (well, at least it is not a tube flashlights, and reminds of CRX Stratis Lumina creation ) Thumbs Up

Here are the Videos:

And here is where we can find some more information (the link is from one of the videos “description” and leads to a pre-order/informative page):

Yeah, that one of the few things that bugs me about it (and the XP-G3, of course)!…
But other than that, this seems to be a nice flashlight! A bit “expensive” (for my wallet), but it is a new thing and for what I’ve been seeing, RovyVon delivers great quality on their flashlights, with “innovative” design !

Let’s see how it will be received by the “community” Wink

I am quite tempted. Once you include the $12 shipping it makes just as much sense to order it from Amazon UK. I will check my bank account and see if I can justify another pocket light Smile

Bonum commune communitatis.

Eheh, I guess I’ll need to check mine as well, but right now I will be probably denied to get one! Cash
Other triples will be my priority, if you know what I mean Wink

BUT, I do like this shape, seems to feel/fit nicely in a pocket or jacket! It’s not that “I’m happy to see you Blushing “ sensation on the jeans ! LOL

It will be around for a while, though, so my bank may “accept” my “need” for another light later Thumbs Up

I’m not really looking for “OK” in a $70 flashlight when we have such an amazing selection of high CRI options available now. However, they have confirmed a 219C version will be coming a couple weeks after the XP-G3 is released. Long press for off is still cancer Sick

I have 3 lights with XP-G3. One with TIR and 2 without. All 3, (to me), have great tints. CW bordering on NW and no green or blue.

I’m with the majority here. Longer press on than off to avoid accidental activation when carrying. But to each their own!

Hum, I have the Wuben TO10R with XP-G3 (CW, 70 CRI or so) and the Wuben TO46R with XP-G3 (NW, 90 CRI) and both have a major tint shift (towards green).
Only way to fix both was to put some DC-Fix and other kind of diffuser, because even outdoor it was very noticeable that annoying shift (mostly on the TO10R) ! So NW XPL-HI, for example, would be better.

But, to each, its own! About the long presses…if possible, none! But I don’t like long press for ON.
In a urgency, I prefer to have it ready to turn ON!

For this RovyVon, I would prefer not to have the long press; a switch to turn ON and another to change modes would be good, then!

Interesting. I’m very susceptible to ANY green or blue tints in any of my lights but I must have won the lottery because none of mine have any.

I actually prefer full on CW without a hint of blue or green and these XPG-G3 lights have none of that. I’m actually very pleased with my 2 RovyVon light tints with XPG-G3 emitters!

That’s awesome. Since you are here, could you answer whether the light is glued shut? Also, would you consider any high CRI LEDs instead of Nichia 219C, like Samsung LH351D, Luminus SST-20-W, etc.?

The light is screw sealed, you can open it by unscrewing the screws (NOT recommended). And currently, we may not consider other high CRI LEDs like Samsung etc as we do not have a source for these kinds of emitters.

So, people, in conversation with RovyVon I suggested to eventually create a groupbuy for this flashlight if the people here are interested.

What do you think about that? The conditions for it are not defined, so if people are interested in the flashlight, post it here and also some suggestions to run the GB.

RovyVon will probably see the thread (if not I will keep them updated), and then if there is interest, maybe the GB can advance Thumbs Up

Let us know what you think !!!

It sure does look different, and I’d love something with that form factor (pocket carry could be easier than a tube light) but with an improved UI and of course some different emitter (though it doesn’t look too complicated to tear it open and swap them)
