Niiice.

Is there someone who would like to buy 500pcs of nickel plated BeCu small springs?

I was supposed to only have about 200 left. However, I actually have 500 small springs left, and I emailed the manufacturer about it. They let me keep it as a part of a good business relationship, which is rather nice Smile

So, since I’m not ordering the silver plated springs yet, who would like to buy the remaining?

They can be used for driver springs, dual spring setups, battery holders, etc. They will be shipped out as quickly as possible, possibly the same day.

Pricing:

0,27$US for less than 50 small springs
0,25$US for less than 100 small springs
0,23$US for less than 250 small springs
0,20$US(at cost) for 250 small springs and more

Shipping: 5$US internationally for less than 100 springs.

Otherwise, it’s going to be about 8-10$US depending on where you live.

Do you want them separately or with your order? If separately with the nickel plated BeCu small spring, I can ship them tomorrow.

No problem.

The only thing would be that the J4 flux bin is more prone to getting an above BBL line tint bin, being GA3,GB4,GC1,GD2, having a 50% chance of getting one above the BBL.

The J3 flux bin has been confirmed by the rep last time to be GA3/GA4 depending on the quantity ordered.

Same thing for the J2 flux bin of the 3000k version, being confirmed HD2/HA4 depending on the quantity ordered.

I rather get the GA4 with J3 than random tint bin with J4.

However, Emisar was able to get J4 flux bin and HD2 tint bin. Wonder where they bought it from.

Well, they probably have a special relation with their supplier since they can easily buy 10000s of LEDs at a time, so they can get more choice in term of chromacity bin order code.

I’m not willing to take the risk of a J4402 chromacity bin getting an above tint bin, even with a higher flux bin.

The only way I would be willing to take a risk would be that some people here pay for the order, and then I order it myself to see what happens.

If the tint bin is good, I’ll sell it normally.

If not, I’ll just sell it for cost.

Don’t forget – if you do CCT mixing, you get a lower tint. So, even two emitters with a “green” tint (above BBL), if they are far enough away from each other in CCT, can make a “mixed” CCT that has a “rosy” tint (below BBL). Wink

I know this doesn’t help in single emitter or otherwise single CCT builds, but it’s a thought. Innocent

I’m thinking about a very small quantity of each, but not ready to confirm. Is there a planned cutoff date?

Also, are you still considering an LH351D order?

Yes of course. The only tint available for the LH351Ds are T6 bins, so about as good as the AEDe groupbuy LEDs. I’m still currently searching for a source.

I’ve currently found a contact at Future Electronics which may be able to pick up some good tinted LH351Ds.

HOWEVER, I can easily buy the springs, and ship them quickly, compared to the lead time of the LEDs.

So springs are the priority.

Too far away CCT mixes can and usually will screw up the CRI, although it may not matter much (if at all) depending on user preferences. To avoid too much CRI loss I get along with a maximum of 1 to 1.5K CCT distance when mixing high CRI emitter dyads. Some testing in this regard would be nice to see (CCT emitter delta vs CRI loss), but we need to convince some tester about this. maukka has a nice deal of high CRI emitters… Innocent

I’m interested in some 4000K SST-20s if you can secure a batch below the BBL.

It’s probably normal but as I am now working with the springs, I noticed that the small spring (from the previous gb of course) remains shorter when compressed the first time?

Yes, with these springs, both small and large, it is normal for it to stay somewhat compressed permanently from the first use. The new ones will be the same too. It shouldn’t get any worse though. Once that little bit of length is lost the first time, that should be all.
