It seems some like 90CRI. Boss of sofirn is trying to get 90CRI but that’s more difficult than 80CRI. Will definitely get some but don’t know when and how many.

But it can be used in all XPL series light, right?

Yes, since it shares the same 3535 soldering footprint.

Maybe it’s worth a shot if you try to contact our BLF member “AEDe” from Moscow, Russia. He sold a lot of LH351D LEDs in different tints, flux bins and chromatic bins. Maybe he or someone at e-Neon (his supplier) could assist Sofirn to get the proper tints and chromatic bins that are known to be below the BBL, hence not green but rosy.

How easy/difficult is it for Chinese companies to get things from Russia? I could imagine that from history Russia and China have very good trade relations.

Thank you for the information but sadly it’s not easy to get things from Russia. Last time we purchased the Russia headlamp, it took from late 2018 to early 2019 to arrive. Facepalm

Actually sofirn can get samsung leds but it hard to purchase accurate tint zone, it comes reel by reel. Sofirn need to separate them. Then better tint sell well, what about these tints not so good? Sell to muggles?

Barry, thanks for checking the 80CRI 5000K Samsung LH351D leds, the output and CRI looks good.

The question is: how does the beam shape and the tint look if you shine the XP-L2 version and LH351D version next to each other? On a white wall, but also when illuminating some colourful things, or outside? I know that you are less flashoholic than we are Smile , but perhaps you can share us your personal impression of the difference?

well, my eyes are not that sensitive, all I can say is LH351D beam is more comfortable than XPL2. Big Smile

Gone a bit OT on the branding IMO. Kinda putting me off. I will wait for confirmation on whether there is any glue before thinking on this further.

Would this one be more/less floody than the original?

The switch LEDs have 4 modes, and one of those modes is "off".

 

Where is this adjustable from?

Since it uses Anduril, then most likely that is 7 clicks will cycle from Off to On to Blinking (if 3 states) or Off to High to Low to Blinking (if 4 states).

Would also probably like to order on AliExpress. Banggood lately has been cancelling my pre-orders after they already take my money, then mention some other issue if the pre-order is taking too long, and suggest me to cancel it or they cancel it automatically…

I really like the thought of having one of these with XHP50.2’s. SST-20’s would also be awesome. Just a thought.

Can’t answer regarding the bezel. Bezel not glued would probably be OK? (could carelessly unscrewing the bezel damage the LEDs, like in the earlier batch of Fireflies ROT66 where the optic will scrape off and damage the LED?)

Regarding the driver board, I seem to recall Toykeeper or someone in another SP36 message thread, mention that due to the smaller size of the head, there is not additional space to hold the driver board in place (like screws), so it has to be glued in place (otherwise there is risk of shorting out something, which I recall Toykeeper mentioned too)..

Yea, too many words, it would look a lot better in the same font size or on two lines.

I always liked the style of the BLF A6

And heres a crappy photoshop mockup

A LED with a green tint will look bad even to muggles, even if they ignore the reason why it looks bad. They won’t like it and you will loose customers.
But a bad tint can be corrected with an appropriate filter and they are several ways to mount or incorporate it.
- Soft thin filter between a TIR optic and the front glass lens to keep the filter flat. The filter should resist to heat and UV to not degrade too quickly over time = more expensive.
- Front glass lens replaced by a tinted glass lens.
- Front bezel threaded to mount removable glass filter just like on camera lens. Not cheap.

I remember ToyKeeper told the driver will come out if it’s unglued.
