@Everybody, the shipping deadline has been set at Tuesday next week. That means EVERY ORDER WILL BE SHIPPED BY TUESDAY MORNING AT THE WORST.

@likevvii, you’ll have to wait until Wednesday next week to see if there is any remaining stock for the LEDs.

My order came in today. Package is beyond the capacity of even USPS to mess up. (probably should not say that, they never cease to amaze me with their ability to destroy my packages)

All in order, Thanks again BlueSwordM!

Finally got around to throwing together a convoy S2+ with triple SST-20s and I’m super happy with them. They really are gorgeous. Best looking SST-20s I’ve seen yet and just a hair behind dogfarts for me as far as preference goes. Thanks again BlueSwordM!

What’s with the Samsung LH351D pejoratively called “dogfarts”?

HaHa! LOL

It’s not kind to this emitter.
Granted Samsung didn’t give it a “nifty” name as Cree does, but to dig and construe a less than flattening surname from the part number would not be in my vocabulary. Most probably Pwsmith didn’t coin this, so not to take personally.

just FYI I built a S2+ with single sided LD-A4 driver (it has large spring pad) and used gen 2 large springs on both ends. Flat tops fit perfectly and the elasticity was not an issue

Some lowbrow clowns on /r/flashlight are the ones who started calling it “dogfarts”. Silly Facepalm

It’s an LED… It’s not your girlfriend, I don’t think a stupid nickname is going to hurt it’s feelings.

Is Digikey the best US based source for them now?

Their price and shipping is lower than arrow’s super high $12.99 shipping.

Just a word of caution but one of my LEDs died (broken bond wires) when I dropped the optic into my H03 from a height of about 1 cm. They seem to be quite fragile. The ones on my triple board have been fine.

@jasontheguitarist, the best source for LH351Ds is indeed Digikey.

@thisnameisvalid, quite unlucky.

Do SST-40s pose the same problem?

My SST-20 LEDs came in the mail today! Like others have said, they were very well packaged. I have a Convoy S2+ triple host patiently waiting for them. I was a little worried that they may not work given the issue that jasontheguitarist had, but after my second reflow ever, I’m happy to report that they work great. Thank you BlueSwordM for making these available!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

My LED’s arrived yesterday, like many I have an S2+ triple waiting, also a FF PL47 to repair if I can ever find a lens and get it back together again Big Smile

Thank you BSM, your time and effort are greatly appreciated.

Received a well packaged envelope from Canuckistan. The springs are gorgeous, they'd fit in a Big Smile necklace.

Found a small issue, though:

 

 

Looked and looked everywhere, yet I miss a 3rd gen small spring.

@Barkuti, I’ll check your order picture. Should yield the numbers you gave me. Will check once I’m home.

@mod007, excellent. Smile

I’m really sorry guys and gals if this GB took so long.

I worked much more this summer compared to last year, which is why.

No, don’t worry. Still on the way.

I’ve had 2 anomalies with Europe shipments this time, which did reach destination, but took a long time for some reason.

It’s only been 2 weeks for you, which is very slow compared to usual(shipped on Thursday evening a bit less than 2 weeks ago), but I’ve had orders take 2x as long as usual.

I’d wait another 2 weeks from now to be worried.

Ok guys.

So, I’ve finally shipped to everyone who has paid and responded on Friday, which is nice.

Anyway, I’ve messaged people on Wednesday who still haven’t responded and paid about their LED orders, so will wait until Wednesday.

If the people messaged do not respond before Wednesday morning, I will have some LEDs left.

So, since there still seems to be some demand for the FD2s*, I’ll sell them to the people wanting below(will PM them on Wednesday) with their spring order too

1. likevii: 20x of each size BeCu 3rd Gen spring + 3/8 SST-20s FD2*
2. Lund1660: x SST-20s FD2*
3. KevinZA1988: x SST-20s FD2*
4. contactcr: 10x large and 10x small 3rd Gen BeCu springs

*Orders with SST-20s
