The beauty of these headlamps from large manufacturers is the superior buck driver that is much more efficient and much better at regulating output than the typical FET drivers with Anduril we see in the Emisars, Lumintops, Astrolux, Fireflies lights. Unless Lexel has a buck driver with Anduril.


Ahhh, gotcha. Probably wouldn’t want an FET driver with these emitters. Pardon the n00b questions. I just like a ramping interface but I’m sure these will have good mode spacing. Does the H04 driver have a good moonlight?

UPDATE 200129: GB Interest list will be closed on 200201, 00:00 GMT +8
Thanks for all the orders guys, I decided to close the interest list soon so I can start making the lights. Looks like waiting for 200pcs order would be too long. For those still undecided, you guys can get it later via my store.

Regards,
Clemence

I personally find the lowest mode (after converted to E21A) to be practically low enough for my dimmest needs. But those cave dwellers might disagree.

I’m contemplating adding a second H04 with 3000K and 4000k mix. Is that the mix in the pics of the abandoned power plant? If so, it looks incredible!

All my photos in that thread are of my 3000K + 40000K (D220) virence.com Wizard Pro. It’s indeed very nice if that is what you are looking for. It’s warm but white is still mostly white, not orange by any means. Most probably due too the fact it’s obviously rosy. The colours are oversaturated due to the high RG, I personally love it but it can be overwhelming sometimes. Browns, reds and yellows “pop”.

I just tested the 2×2000K + 2×4000K for you.

Thanks for the effort SKV89. I’ll take the 2000K+4000K to my lend out Tiara to convert people to warm light and rosy tints. The 2000+3000K mix nicely shows the rosiness of the emitter has a bigger impact on the mix than the 1000K difference, knowing the 3000K E21A is quit rosy and the 2000K more neutral.

Your measurements are very valuable, consider putting them in a table like ZozzV6 did with his measurements.

Are you sure about that? The measurements for E21A on Clemence’s website show the 2700K R9 at 98 and the 2000K R9 at 89.

you are right

That’s why I don’t really like the 2200K and 2700K versions because their DUV is pretty much 0 meaning they are on the BBL and not rosy like how I want it. I think very negative duv or rosiness is especially important in warm CCT because otherwise things look yellow. With negative DUV, whites still look white to my eyes even if the temp is very low. The 2000k E21A is an exception that I grew to like eventhough it is spot on the DUV. To me it mimics candle light and I only use it during sleep time where I want as little blue light as possible.

I thought about creating a massive compilation table of my flashlight measurements but problem is only very recently I started logging my measurements and the hundreds of flashlights I measured before I never recorded them and I don’t have time to retest them. I also gave away many of my older lights. Also tables are extremely hard to manage on BLF so editing tables as I add more measurements would be a huge pain.

I’m going to order a second HO4 but I can’t decide on the tint. Part of me wants to try something whacky like 2000K, 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K and then part of me wants to do 3000K + 4000K since I know that’s gorgeous.

The 2000K + 6500K looks pretty cool too. Maybe 2000K + 5700K?

Man, this is tough!

For those curious how stock H04 XML2 neutral white would look next to e21A (no mix).

SX5 (E21A quad 4000K) vs H04 (XML2 neutral white) vs AT Elf C1 (e21A quad 5000K). WB ~5000K. All with beaded tir.

Depends on your needs. For all in one general applications where true colors matters, 5000K is best. For color critical, 5700K is the best. For applications when there’s the need to check which white is white, 6500K works best. CW has the most balanced color spectrum although things don’t look as pretty and appealing as under WW.

Price should be the same, but shipping won’t be free anymore

I tested quadtrix E17A and it’s only a tad wider than the OEM XML2 which is too narrow for my liking for a general purpose headlamp. Runners would love it.

I have never been this excited about a headlamp in my life! I bought 2 H04s and 4 other quadrix mcpcbs with different E21a configurations.

I have homes for 3 of my 4 boards – H03, H04 and a Rofis R1 that are sitting in my collection not being used due to ugly emitters.

If I was going to put one of my quadrix boards in a Convoy S3, what driver should I use?
