I will do my best asking Barry for a nice BLF discount to preorder C01R (with SST20-DR). Not sure though if we can expect a bargain price of $ 7.99 plus shipping again. I hope Sofirn will also be able to supply a microlensed/pebbled optic suitable for C01R. Awaiting news from Barry anytime soon.

Not sure if I speak for anyone but myself, but I’d love to have two (or more) optic choices than a discount on an already well priced light. Big Smile

Imagine if Sofirn offered a combo accessory pack of 2-3 additional optics for a reasonable price. Of course these optics could possibly fit every C01S/R/??? including the hopefully upcoming E21A version, so it would be quite versatile and not limited to the R. Emisar does this with one alternative optic you can add to the D4V2 upon purchase and Convoy has a 5 pack of different optics you can buy for the S2+.

Wouldn’t that kind of accessory pack completely set the C01S apart from the competition? Don’t get me wrong, even ONE extra pebble optic along with the flashlight would be wonderful.

I just ordered one from aliexpress.com, still 97 available.

I thought I had ordered one also, but when I received it today,I saw that it is the C01S with a white led in it.Of course,the aluminium was painted red… Facepalm
I don’t understand who’s the fault is,so,I keep it for a keychain light,waiting the new red led light with the SST led.

Where did you order from Theodore41? Sofirn does offer the C01S in red anodization, too.

However, everyone with a C01R should also have a C01S and vice versa. LOL

By the end of september I hope Barry or I will be able to post a new update on C01R using SST20-DR. Stay tuned...

Luminous and wired, we'll be glowing in the dark.

I believe Beamax is also Sofirn’s “other” store, because when I tried ordering something from Beamax, and was asking some questions, the same person replied to my inquiry as in Sofirn’s AliExpress store. Smile

For anyone that missed out on the C01R, it appears to be in stock at Amazon. Maybe that’s why all the official store inventory disappeared?

I’m not sure if that applies on Amazon? In any case, I don’t have any codes. But for what it’s worth, the price on Sofirn Official was $9-$10 iirc. Only $2 more and you get it in less than a week.

Wish for C01R SST20 670nm

Actually, there is no true 670nm chromaticity bin of Luminus's SST20-DR. The good news is that Sofirn told me they were able to get some with a standard wavelength of 660nm peaking up to 670nm. That should be something in that yellow highlighted bins.

Luminous and wired, we'll be glowing in the dark.

What is the difference between the today existing light and the one with the SST led?

Even deeper red, and SST20 presumably fits the optics better.

First of all, I do not expect any huge differences between those LEDs. They will probably be barely visible. I suppose you may notice a slightly better beam pattern and a bit more brightness on high mode. XP-E2 photo red has a smaller die area than SST20-DR, so the hotspot of the new version should look a bit wider.

I hope to receiving some news from Barry after the national holiday.
