[Interest Check] Sofirn C01R - XP-E2 RED keychain flashlight (small-size batch 200pcs, 92% reached)

Hello everyone,

The project of a Sofirn 14500/AA light with red LED has been suspended for technical limitations (see here). After discussing some alternatives, I would like to present you a more feasible concept that Sofirn is highly interested in - a AAA keychain light using the widely known and appreciated Sofirn C01S host and driver design and a small yet powerful red LED for red light illumination.

 

Sofirn C01R (project name)

 

Example: Crimson Red Example: Wine Red

Illustration courtesy by Sofirn. Modified anodization color courtesy by TLF member oOFOXOo from Austria. 

 

Typical applications:

  • Low-light usage to maintain night vision capability
  • Finding keys, stargazing, astrophotography...
  • Military/outdoor use (reading maps, orientate without attracting attention, no attraction of insects)
  • Ambient colorful illumination (nightstand, decoration)

Specifications (as in C01S):

Emitter:

Cree XP-E2 red (625nm) confirmed

or Cree XP-E2 deep red (660nm) yet to be tested and confirmed

or Cree XP-G3 deep red (660nm) yet to be tested and confirmed

Lumens output: yet to be assessed, monochromatic light is difficult to measure

User Interface: 2 modes, low - high, always start on low (like BLF edition)

Body color: red anodization (maybe chance for a "deep red matte" anodization Smile )

Voltage range: 0.9V - 1.5V

Dimensions: 71.6mm (length) x 14.5mm (head diameter)

Weight: 15 grams (without battery)

Battery options: 1x AAA 1.5V Alkaline battery or 1x AAA 1.2V NiMH rechargable battery

Price: should hopefully be in the same area as C01S with SST-20 4.000K 95CRI, i.e. around $ 9.00 - $ 11.00 if I recall correctly.

 

If there is enough interest Sofirn might be able to make a small-size batch of 200 pcs or more.

 

Please express your interest below with your desired quantity. At the moment, I will count any tint to gather a general lot size.

Thank you!

I assume the price will be very close to C01S if we get to buy it. Smile

Will there be an optic? The C01 is made for a 5mm led (which is its own optic) without ledboard so will not fit a SMD led just like that. Maybe Sofirn will use the C01S host with C01 driver? So what current will it be driven at?

As far as I know, they want to use the C01S flashlight but with XP-E2 red instead of SST-20. I need to wait for Sofirn's engineer to do some testing with the current.

I’m interested but my interest caps at twenty bucks. If it’s under fifteen bucks, I’d buy at least one. At ten bucks or less, I’d buy at least two.

Please note that XP-G3 deep red is not confirmed, pending more evaluation on actual dome size (need to fit underneath the C01S optic), availability, beam quality and additional costs. Priority is currently given to XP-E2 red (625nm).
