Sounds nice.
But why not equip it with Nichia 219B R9080 to go all the way to CRI98?

This is anecdotal but for medical use the highly rosy emitters like 219B and E21A (lower flux bins at least) don’t show skin as accurately, especially with eyes adapted to less-rosy area lighting. Low duv definitely makes skin looks more flushed to me, just comparing some different lights of the same CCT and CRI/R9 back and forth.

The real bummer is a lowest mode of 2.5lm, that’s still way brighter than the little incan penlights I have had optometrists use on me and I think it would be uncomfortable.

Is it available yet?

When I do an internet search, this thread is the only result that comes up.

What is the UI?

Mode memory?

Mode sequence?

2.5, 10, 50 and 200? Wow, that’s something you don’t see too often, especially in a 2 AAA light. I like it, 4 very useable, utilitarian output levels with no useless half of the time moonlight mode getting in the way. Has my interest!

I’m pleased that this unit actually has appropriately positioned, highly useful knurling.

I just ordered 5 for $14.84 each with that Amazon code – thanks for sharing it. I hope that we like them.

I like the mode spacing and the UI is good enough.

At 5.5”, it’s a bit longer than preferred for a shirt pocket, but hopefully it doesn’t feel too long in actual use.

I didn’t find any reviews of this light online.

I’ll be really pleased and impressed, if the listed run times are anywhere near that in real life.

These would potentially replace a few Sofirn SF02 that I’ve given out. I hope that the switch is easy enough for my older brother with weak thumbs to use – the SF02 is too firm.

I’m wondering why she would be happy with such a light.
If the lumen fit the job she only needs 2.5lm and 10lm. The other settings are just trouble.

The efficiency for medical use, looks not so good.
50×13 = 650 lm/h
10×34 = 340 lm/h
2.5×80= 200 lm/h

50 lumen with isn’t needed for medical use, is over 3x more efficiënt than 2.5 lumen.
50 lumen with isn’t needed for medical use, is nearly 2x more efficiënt than 10 lumen.

So by the looks of it, a medical professional is better of with a light optimized for the lower settings. (with the higher settings absent or hidden)

The photo shows a man wearing the light in his shirt. Looks a bit top heavy to me. A 1 cell light is better for such use. Even a 1xAA or 1×14500 would be better.

Chargers: 1xBasen BD01 5/5, 1x Gyrfalcon All-88, LiitoKala: 3x100 4/5, 2x202 4/5, 1x402 3/5., MiBoxer C4-12 3/5.
Flashlights: DQG Tiny III 26650 5/5, FiTorch MR35 3/5, Haikelite SC26 HD 3/5, Lumintop Tool AA/AAA 4/5, Nitecore LA10, Sofirn C01 BLF 3200k/5600k, Zebralight H600Fc 3/5.
Powerbanks: EasyAcc 26800 mAh 3/5, Xtar PB2 4/5.
Waiting for: (DQG Tiny) 21700 EDCs. Xtar powerbank that (also) takes 20700, 21700, 26650

$14.84 would be an acceptable price for this Wuben E19..
(Unfortunately I’m unable to order via Amazon.)

Checking their AliExpress store, it’s listed for $26.98.
