Added.

Got a message back from Digikey again.

Great for the FW3A groupbuy, but not too great for us, but still good.

For individual samples(less than a reel), the tint bins are randomly available from T6, TA, T7 and TB. No wonder the LH351D from Bob Mc Bob looked so green.

For a 1x reel LH351D (like our groupbuy), the only tint bin confirmed and available is T6, so way better than the 2nd and 3rd batch of LH351Ds, so about as good as the 1st batch from AEDe, but still not the godly T2/T4 bin. Right on the BBL at 1A like the datasheet, but slightly above when tested below that with a Q8 reflector(pics below).

1A:

15A:

For 4x reels of LH351Ds, the tint bins are confirmed and available in the T4 and T6 bin, so the T4 bin is way below the BBL and close to 4100k-4000k according to the Digi-Key rep. That is very good.

Also, the Mouse rep confirmed that the tint bins available for the SST-20 3500k and 3000k are below the BBL.

Could not confirm it however for the 4000k because Mouser is strictly a commercial off the shelf distributor. We do not track the bin codes on LED’s so we are unable to quote or obtain certain bin codes.

Understandable, but slightly disappointing for the 4000k one.

I really wanted a confirmation of a throwier, super rosy, more efficient 219B.

The SST-20 does have a better beam the LH351D though because of the smaller die.

If they do not track the bin codes then how can he know their inventory is below BBL? Doesn’t even make sense.

That’s the problem for the SST-20 4000k. That’s not the full message sorry.

We were able to obtain order samples for a very large customer in LED lighting from the 3500k and 3000k chromacity bins kits. However, since we do not have any of the 4000k Luminus SST-20 SST-20-W40H-A120-J5401 you requested, we are unable to quote a certain bin code, as Mouser is strictly a commercial off the shelf distributor. We do not track the bin codes on LED’s so we are unable to quote or obtain certain bin codes.

They’re basically saying that since they don’t have any of the 4000k SST-20s in stock that we want, they can’t tell us anything.

It initially didn’t make sense, but now it does.

The T6 and T7 bin were above the BBL. Without reflector or optics, they look decent, but once put in an optic, it turns green. How much is a reel? You don’t think we can reach the numbers? Maybe if we split the order with Richard, Intl_Outdoor, Kaidomain?

@SKV89, the T6 bin is the one showed in the pictures in a Q8 reflector. It looks marvelous compared to the 2nd batch LH351Ds from AEDe which were a higher TA tint bin if I remember well, and looked not good in a reflector.

And if I buy a full reel, it’s going to cost about 1320$CA at minimum without taxes.

So yeah, not going to take the risk until I find a source of confirmed T1-T4 tint bins without having to buy over 3000 emitters.

Oh I misread. I thought we can choose the T1-T4 tint bin if we buy a full reel. If that’s the case, I’m not interested in the LH351D.

The tint in your photos look even rosier than the 219B 9080. I bought the Meteor M43 with the first batch of LH351D in this test. Here are the test results showing a duv of 0.0024. Not sure how accurate that is because it looks even higher in person compared to my other lights. It looks very green compared side by side with the stock XP-L HI 5D and even greener next to the XP-G2 5D. So green, that I’m planning to discard these emitters and put in a rosier one from this GB.

You put it in an M43, right?

Try testing it without the AR lens.

And don’t forget that the emitters in my Q8 are overdriven quite a bit, and no, it’s not that close to the 219B R9080. It’s way better than the 219C 5000k, a bit rosier than the XP-L HI 5D found in my GT Mini, and not as rosy as the 219B found in the A01.

I just saw the beam like that in real life. I’ve seen the 219B and real life, and it’s way too rosy in my opinion. I like a pure creamy 4000k myself. Never got attracted to the 219B.

I got real lucky with these 4 LEDs. They were the ones producing the highest light, and the least green of any of my LH351Ds.

It looks a lot better without any glass or optics and less green than 219C but not as nice as the Cree 5A/5D tint for sure. Cree 5A/5D and E21A 4000k tint are the best 4000k tint I’ve seen.

Strange that your pics shows tint that is rosier than Cree 5A/5D and E21A. Maybe our eyes see things differently lol

If BlueSwordM is implying that is how the first batch from AEDe looks in person i’m going to disagree. Some special camera work going on there for sure.

For a moment I was thinking that might be how our eyes perceive thing differently on the screen and in reality. The tint in those pics look even rosier than my 219B 9080 4000k and 4500k that I see in person lol.

Could you please add 10 more small and 10 more big springs for me? That would be 30 big and 30 small springs in total. I like the way these springs fit together in a dual high current capable array. Very nice design! Thank you!

Always looking for: used or damaged flashlights for repair and MODDING

Hmm… maybe…

…but for now, since you’ve already got me on the list, you might as well put some kinda numbers beside my name. Let’s make it 50 each of the large and small springs. Big Smile

I’ll have to think more on the emitter options. Blushing

Interested in some emitters but need to decide which and how many. Also dependent on rosiness! Blushing

All added.

@TomE, what are you going to do with all these LEDs? How many lights do you have available to mod? Smile

@johnkey68, added.

We are at 1305 large springs
We are at 1285 small springs
We are at 256 SST-20s 4000k
We are at 132 SST-20s 3500k
We are at 209 LH351Ds 4000k

We are getting closer to the 2000 spring limit, so I’m getting ready to prep the order.
