Could you offer a production run of the fw3a with the 219B 4000K R9080 and flashed with the lower max amp custom anduril toykeeper made for the 219b. I’d pay a premium for that since I don’t flash my own drivers.[/quote]
Now that would be a killer deal! A lot of tint freaks could go nuts in a second

I'd be interested in this -- depending on the price.  It would be my first 219b light.

What is the lower max amp value changes in this particular case and how much of an impact is there on tint?

I’m no expert in detailing these stuff but the tint and color are perfect if not ovrdriven.
If you go full FET then these delicate emitters turns angry blue.
I have my FW3A flashed with TK’s 219 fw and runs great. But having turnkey as option when ordering would be awesome.

I believe this is a product from your store:

Cool. I didn’t know about the new version.

Every single time I’ve looked at it on Illumn it’s said backordered. I finally signed up to be notified in case it ever comes back.

Hopefully if that ever happens it’ll be the new version.

Edit: I just watched the rest of the video and see that Illumn doesn’t have it listed in stock because of crappy QC.

Likely not enough volume for Lumintop to make us a special run.

We will not be selling these until Folomov demonstrates to us that they have fixed QC and design problems.

 

FW3A Colored Anodization, FW3T Titanium, Hybrid Titanium Copper Models will be picked up ASAP after the latest release announcement.

Thanks for the reply Calvin Thumbs Up
Hope they figure out how to solve those issues, as the UI is already good on this version Glasses

I’ll take a purple 219C. The Lumintop 219C appears very rosy from the pics.

Mine isn’t rosey but it is a pleasant creamy white. No green fortunately on any level.

How does the 210C 4000K compare to the SST-20 4000K FD1?
Do you know what the tint bin and CRI is for the 219C 4000K?
which is rosier?

The SST20 is rosier than the 219C in this batch of lights. I can ask Lumintop which tint bin and CRI but they're super bad at responding.

What output are you comparing them at? Can you compare a lower level and see?

Higher outputs mostly. That's interesting, at a lower level the 219C seems rosier.

That is what people want to know (IMO).  Across its whole output range the SST-20 can shift a huge amount from pretty high above BBL to look awful to right at or below BBL at max output.

The 219C, LH351D, XP-L HI do not do this as much.  219B has a pretty big shift too but it's a bit different.  It seems to shift quick and just stay there.  SST-20 shift follows current very evenly.

How will your price compare to other sellers (e.g. Neal’s Gadgets) for the new versions?

I feel your prices for the FW3A and FW3C options currently listed are very reasonable compared to overseas sellers.

I think many stateside would rather purchase them from you due to the quicker and more transparent shipping and the high level of customer service you provide. My experience with Neal has been great so far (minus slow communication on occasion), but waiting for “the slow boat” and wearing out the refresh button on tracking sites makes my stomach turn. I’ve purchased a number of things from Illumn, and never had a single issue.

We will attempt to match or come as close as possible. People sometimes forget we're actually a family run 3 man op here at Illumn, not some massive corporation.

From what I’ve seen, you communicate like a big ‘ol corporation (in that you are quick) provide service like a small shop (you give at least 2 *****). I imagine that importing the lights has a cost associated with it, and then there is the risk/cost of having your capital tied up in inventory. I respect what you guys do.

I will probably order any additional FW3Whatevers from your store, but I’m tapped for now (my wife is so far unaware that we now have a “flashlight” item in our discretionary budget).

Interest list:
Purple 219C, in honor of TK, for me.

Neal is offering a 25% off code if you post a photo of your light(s) in the main thread AND PM your order number. He, or whomever he wants, can then connect User Names with actual names and addresses. Not worth it to me to get an additional 5% (or 50% for that matter) especially since I have had two earlier issues with him. No thank you.

CS side of Illum /“Calvin” family has been proven to me and is worth much more than that to me. I TRUST Illum.com and his family company.
(And, Yes, I know his real name!) Wink
Cheers!

Thank you for the endorsement. It's definitely difficult to compete against China.

Do you mean Craig? That's my brother, depending on how you contact us determines who will respond. He handles most of the support@illumn.com emails and I'll do Reddit, BLF, etc.

Thanks for all your support everyone! If people are wondering why pre-order listings are not up yet, we've been told we can't "pre-sell" them to "allow for BLF/TLF members to pre-order them" from a.....select not-to-be-named overseas retailer. Judging by their previous track record fulfilment speed we'll still likely get them in your hands stateside faster than they would anyways.

I believe there was a fair amount of effort spent on communicating with Lumintop and actually getting the thing produced. I feel his contribution was a net positive to the project. I’ve had good experiences with his shop as well.
