Concerning interest updates:

Everything updated so far until post #151.

Concerning sourcing E21A emitters:

Sofirn has not yet received any positive feedback from their suppliers. We still need to wait for them to answer their inquiry. As far as I heard, communication from Nichia in Japan back to their suppliers takes a while. I think it's worth for Nichia to have an open ear for BLF as E21A may be another great option for a HighCRI (mini) lantern.

A mini lantern may open up possibilities for enhanced red E21A’s. It’s just a shower thought, but what if Sofirn or the end user could program an additional red channel to boost the R9 values of the emitters?

Sure but 5.000K is not part of the closer consideration, so I could put your second vote either into the "else tint" section or into the 4.500K section.

Absolutely. Let's better have this discussed in the LT1-mini thread to avoid any derailing here. Wink

1 × 4500k or 3500k.

As others have said, an AA version would be brilliant and practical. Just thought I’d throw in my vote as well.

LP, I’ll support this some more and get 1 × 2000K as well. Hoping all the body colours will be available though.

Awesome! Thanks. I have a good feeling about the body colors but the critical point is to get those bloody emitters. Wink

Is it a matter of cost?

No, a matter of communication backwards from Nichia to their suppliers and then back to Sofirn.

They are still waiting for feedback, so please have some extra patience with this light.

Not yet. But it will for sure be more expensive than C01S SST-20, just thinking of the higher price for E21A, the new optic and some driver adjustments.

Looking into my magic sphere I'd say, we may hit a price of $ 15.00 but it could also be a bit more or less, depending on the total volume produced.

I have really no idea where the price will settle, so anything between $ 8 and $ 15 sounds realistic to me right now. Smile

The more they can produce of this light, the less the single price will probably be. Until now, we are getting close to 200 pcs already.

I remember when C01S SST20 was 3.99$ on site.If launch price of this E21A version will be low too will buy more

I wouldn’t insist on a budget price. In the extreme this only would lead to just one tint and one anodization. Price must be attractive enough for Sofirn to give us some choice of tint and anodization.

Sure tint choice is the priority,anyway I think we can skip anodisation color choice if that keep price low for an AAA 100lm light

Not to mention, how many E21A lights are available anywhere near the price of even a more-expensive C01A?
