I just purchased a 50.2 6500k. Why are the sites pictures showing a smo reflector,but In this thread, it’s op reflector?
I wanted to get a smo. And what’s the diff between the xhp 50.2 blue?

Sorry, but the promo code sucks. I’ve almost bought a host but now I’m mad.
When you use a code for host you subtract $2, but then you receive message the shipping options has changed and no more free shipping. Cheapest is $5, so using a code made the price for me from regular $25 to $28.
Thank you NG.

Edit: and you can’t undo it by adding another one to cart. Code applies automatically.

Edit2: pheew, finally managed to remove applied promo code which resulted in lower price back to $25.

Beware.

Probably only for the throwy SST40 versions. It might not play nice with the quad die emitters, donut holes and all.

The 50.2 should not have donut holes even with a smo reflector.
The ft03 has a smo with a 50.2 and beam is great.

Neal has to confirm, but this was the reply:

Seems XHP50.2 CW
SST40 CW
SST40DD NW
are SMO

I’m at the edge of puchasing the S2WP variant…
but I need some time to make up my mind. Any hint on how long will the code last?

(Note: for me the code didn’t affect free shipping, so this is actual $4 discount)

Some questions…
1. One thing doesn’t add up between what maukka says compared to M4DM4X review of SST-20 variant. M4DM4X says it has a deep reflector (and it looks so to me). maukka said “Wide spill with a medium sized spot”.

Wide enough spill means a lot to me. When walking the light I want the spill to end shortly before my feet. Deep reflectors don’t really work for me….how is it in this case?

2. Description says triple-click strobe but earlier M4DM4X review says double-click strobe. Which is correct?
3. I see that SST-20 and XHP50.2 specs in the shop are different from what they were originally. Mostly lower. Can we expect similar specs change to S2WP later?
4. Will the production lights purchased now have the firmware issues noticed by maukka fixed?

Thanks for the pics. Now I know the xhp50.2 blue is haha.
That’s actually pretty cool. Be nice if second mode is a red xhp 50.2.
And third mode is strobe flashing blue and red at same time.

Important announcement:

Due to the riot and chaos presently happening in Hong Kong right now, some orders of the Nightwatch lights are affected in the postal office, especially those that are still coming from Guangdong via HK.

Delays are to be expected on a case-to-case basis.

I just got one of these Quad Osram S2WP led and having a hard time getting it to work on my MCPCB. I hacked up the traces of a XHP70 mcpc and almost got it to work.. Any body know which mcpcb the Nightwatch NI40 is using.
This S2WP has 4 pairs of anodes and cathodes.
on one side its +-+- and directly opposite side its again +-+-. I personaly never seen another LED with this complex footprint before.

Sometimes being a newb is the best part of a hobbie

I would be surprised to learn that they use anything but a custom MCPCB.

A few day ago I’ve received NI40 host.
I’m sorry to say that, but it’s not well packed. Both the lens are nicely packed separately and for this reason the reflector is not secured by anything. My piece came with two large fingerprints on the reflector… Facepalm

Does anybody know the safe way of removing fingerprints from inside of the ref?

Where did you buy the S2WP LED? Mouser and digikey don’t have it.
