Not sure if you can source ZWB1 filters easily like ZWB2

I bought these today for my Convoy S2+ Nichia UV. I can compare them to ZWB2 once I receive them.

Just an FYI – way overpriced. You can get them on Aliexpress for less than $2.00, $0.50 in small qty. Special order, but they seem to be able to scrounge them up.

seems lasers are also no option

RLU4116E, 375 nm, 70 mW, 5.6 mm 4.700,00$


Those would be so neat to play with. But $4.7k probably not economical
FWIW – back when there was only one (cheap) source for the 405nm diodes I tore one out of a playstation. Built a mineral light – the very energetic beam was amazing, in spite of the purple light. Did things to minerals we didn’t expect.
Wonder if there’s some commercial application for this where we could do the same (rip the diode out).
Will Google…

Just gotta ask the ones on Aliexpress that look like manufacturers (hard to sort from all the resellers). Eventually you’ll find one who has them. Lots of companies making these it seems.

That’s too vague.

You mentioned specific prices, are they from a specific seller that you or someone you know bought from? Which one? Are you confident what you received was a ZWB1 filter, not ZWB2?

Sorry, haven’t bought filters in over a year. Last time I bought I purchased 500 pcs of ZWB2 for $0.50/ea and 10ea ZWB1 for around $2 – but that’s a long time ago. Suggest you contact several of the manufacturers – I’m sure they will give you a good quote.
