@Barkuti, unfortunately, that’s not the case. That would be much more problematic if that were the case. Smile

The 4th Gen spring design isn’t confidential of course. I’m just going to be increasing the copper plating by a nice margin up to the limit that my contact at the Canadian spring company recommended.
Should be slightly more expensive, but no price point yet.

The 5th Gen spring however? Oh boy. Until I’ve finalized the design, I’ll see what I’ll be doing at that point. Should be quite a bit more expensive than a single spring, but less than a dual spring setup with better conductivity.

6. Finally, the copper spring+steel spring combination is a bad idea. The copper spring will gradually lose height, and become ineffective.

Even when both are soldered together at the top?

I cannot find any information about C17550. Is C17550 a secret/new UNS designation that has not yet been registered?

Guess that involves some patent. It's a shame humanity is still choosing to deal with the patent Silly shitstem, really.

Well, it seems we’ve gotten to the critical point (years ago) where the patent system is like having nukes. In both cases, those who don’t have are regularly run over by those who do. Mutual assured destruction is the only thing that provides a modicum of peace. So, everybody that wants to be able to make a profit “must” play the same game. There can never be an end to it, because nobody wants to be the first to lay theirs down.

Shameful unconsciousness. Predatory mind patterns. Fear based behaviour…

The patent shitstem is rotten to the root. Everyone can have ideas. Our minds are more connected than what some may believe. What gives someone or something the right to seize or hijack knowledge which could be used for overall benefit?

Many stuff has been patented way after it was already common knowledge. And let me say on top of this time actually is simultaneous…

As it is know I can only concur with those who use their patent rights and benefits to serve others besides themselves with equanimity (STO polarity, true goodness). Many (pharmaceutical companies, for example) are gaming the patent shitstem for their own benefit (STS or service to self polarity; badness). That is bad and I'm sorry for them, they're just stacking up bad karma.

The patent shitstem needs a good fix, a very good one based in unity consciousness.

This time however, it’s not a patent.

It’s more of a trade secret. Smile

BlueSwordM, are you planning to organise a GB for rosy 3000K SST’s in the future?

A smaller XP-E2 or XP-G3 photo red groupbuy would also make sense since photo red leds are very difficult to source.

@Ryzbor, no problem for the 3000k LEDs. They are HD2, as most 3000k SST-20s already are, so that should not be a problem.

For the photo red LEDs, I’ll try asking my contact at Future Electronics to see what I can get.

The springs have been finally shipped from the manufacturer.

I should have them next week.

I’m so happy that I can finally get to use these in my builds.

I found photo red xp-g3 (XPGDPR-L1-0000-00F01) available in one of my favorite shop. About $1.85 when ordering 500+. I hope you’ll find XPGDPR-L1-0000-00G01

I’d love to get an HA4 tint bin, which would be even better than the HD2.

Back on the BeCu springs though, I should have them early this week.

Anybody else want some springs?

I received my SST-20s yesterday. Envelope was a bit mangled by Canada Post but they survived unscathed. I’ll stick one in a light and post results at some point soon.

Hard to source I guess?

Kaidomain used to sell them if I’m not wrong.

Yeah, good color bins are really hard to source, and are in very high demand.

Pretty old story for the good stuff to be hard to @#$%. There's really no reason for it to be that way other than @#$%. I mean, would that be the same way if people were overall wiser, more knowledgeable and such? Certainly not.

To be honest, do you (plural) really think led developers/manufacturers cannot choose to change the phosphor recipe and base pump frequency to obtain a spot on planckian locus spectral power distribution from led emitters? The answer is yes, some companies are already doing it. I also believe obtaining affordably priced spot on or below planckian locus emitters is accessible, but guess what? More red and less green means less lemons, which means lower flux bin and lower efficiency greenficiency. In my opinion it surely pays off thanks to saturation and just because it simply looks better.
