ouch, these are 2V leds that should not handle more than 1.5A. so on a 10440 either the led gets way more current than that and blows, or if the driver is made for it on average 2W of heat must be dissipated by the driver which is rather steep.

Like Djozz already said, not a good idea at all. These red LEDs have a very low forward voltage and are way more sensitive to heat and overcurrent than SST-20 for example.

You could try using a 10440 3.2V LiFePO₄ battery (if these exist) but still the odds are quite good that...

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

Some statistics per today...

78% fulfillment rate of Sofirn's MPQ,

96 people interested so far,

156 pcs accounted so far,

equals 1.63 Sofirn C01R per each member Big Smile

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

For now, I would count this as one piece since I cannot guarantee that Sofirn will be offering two red tints.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

That would be much floodier than the SST-20 C01S right? It sounds like a nice substitute for the discontinued floody C01.

Yes, LH351D is bigger in terms of the LED’s die size, resulting in a floodier beam.

Some time ago someone here posted a source for honeycomb optics. Along with the SST-20 @2700K…

…it is a nice warm and floody light. Sofirn should offer this TIR optics as option.

I try to get us a different host color (see two designs in the OP #1) to have more diversity with regard to the C01S.

Okay, I put you down for 2pcs as I hope we get 660nm eventually. Wink

Well, let's put it this way for the moment...

  1. Sofirn is interested in making this flashlight.【 ✓ 】
  2. The MPQ of 200 pcs will be reached. 【 very likely to happen 】
  3. The desired tint (deep red) and LED will be selected. 【 pending feedback from their suppliers 】
  4. The desired body color (wine red) will be realized. 【 pending feedback from their anodizing factory and cost effectiveness 】
  5. Sofirn has enough resources to start immediately with the production. 【 pending approval by their production planning 】

I will keep on collecting interest even beyond the 200 pcs mark, at least until we know for sure what the final specs will be and to demonstrate that there is enough interest to offer monochromatic keychain lights. This interest check can also be considered as a pilot for checking interest in a whole bunch of new C01S derivates (e.g. C01S with LH351D 2.700K 90CRI).

Currently, Sofirn is more than busy with the LT1 lantern sale and preparations for the 11/11 sale. They also want to speed things up on the development of the SP10S BLF Andúril flashlight which has received even more interest than the C01R. I assume that the AAA-format is not their top priority right now. Should the C01R get its final approval, they may want to incorporate it with the next batch run of all C01S models. Just contemplating...

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

Thank you Lux-P for this extensive explanation.
What’s your feeling? When the sales could start? After 11.11? End of Nov? Dec?

Personally, I'd like to be pessi...sorry realistic. Big Smile With that said, I do not expect it to happen before December 2019. The benefit about being realistic is, I feel more relaxed about delays and I am more delighted in case things suddenly go faster than expected. Please note that my guessing is more or less reading tea leaves. Wink
