Wuben TO46R with Nichia 219c Emitters 90+ CRI

Doing some searches I didn’t come up with any recent posts on the TO46R. It is now available with 3x Nichia 219c emitters (instead of XP-G3) and the beam is very nice and, to my untrained eye, certainly looks like 90+ CRI as is claimed and I don’t see any green. Nice, “neutral, slightly warm”, and floody. Was $43 after taxes on Amazon US. Really seems like a quality light. I just went for it as I did not have a Wuben light and I have never been disappointed with any of the several Nichia lights now in my possession.

I have it. It’s a GREAT performing light. Crazy bright and a nice big spot which I prefer. But I really don’t like the side switch. I actually hate it. It’s so hard to find without looking down to locate it. It’s tough to “feel” it. It actually aggravates me every time I turn it on and off. I can’t see how anyone thinks the side switch design is a good one. Other than that, the beam and tint is perfection.

It is opposite the clip so I find it easily. Without the clip, I can understand the frustration.

I’ve been eyeing off this light myself. Would love the 56 but it costs 3x as much!
What’s the sustained lumens like? Temp step down?
Direct turbo and moonlight?
I usually like the dual side switch like a Nitecore.
I’m after some 3-4 led 219c lights that can sustain more than the FW3A sized lights.
Max 1000lm seems a little low these days, but if it can keep it going or near it for a long time that’s the main thing.

Anyone worked out exactly what 219c is in it? The 5000k fa3 (I think)? Eg. The normal 5k one going around at the moment.
