It’s getting very close to the 20th. Is the shipping of the lights still on track to be shipped then? Please give us an update.

They are testing the first batch and should start shipping in a few days. Possibly this week.

Still waiting for T9R, no news from FF about an upcoming shipment.

I`ve seen in the thread of another FF model, that they are going to start sending them, but without a specific date, and I have not received any mail from FF.

The information I posted above came from an email from them a day earlier. Not sure what hold up is but I’m glad they are testing product to get it right before releasing.

Dear Jan

E12R is supposed to be shipped around 20th. However, under our strict test we found a small bug with E12R RGB MCPCB.

Now we solved the issue by replacing a new RGB MCPCB, But the shipping date will be delayed till 15th Jan.

Really sorry for the delay, we want to bring you perfect new products.

Except for E12R , T9R and NOV-MU are working perfectly under strict test, we are starting the shippment for T9R and NOV-MU now.

Best Regards!
Jack

This is the email I got last night, they are shipping the T9R any day now since they have passed testing. The E12R has been delayed another 2 weeks or so but honestly I’m glad they are doing all the testing and making sure when we get the lights they are working properly.

Can someone briefly explain the following:

Why does the Osram LED have that much more throw even though the lumens are significantly less then the SBT90.2?

Because the Osram led is much smaller, and that is why it concentrates the light much more in a single point

a big factor is surface area. OSRAM is 1 mm2, while, say a 5 mm x 5mm LED is 25 mm2, so 25 times the area. Dunno what the size is of an SBT90.2 off hand, but just as example of 5x5, the LED would have to be 25 times more lumens than the OSRAM to have equal surface brightness.

The SBT-90 is a 9mm² die. Luminus nomenclature is straight forward; They put the emitter surface area (multiplied by 10) right in the name. 10, 16, 20, 40, 70, 90, 140 ..most are exact figures. I’m not sure how they handle domed emitters ‘apparent area’ though TBH. The reason I mention this is from what I know, the SST20 is a 1.7mm² die. It might be closer to (likely greater than) 2mm² with the dome’s magnification. That’s the only model that I think deviates from its name in exact mm².

I am anxious to see beam shots of 1.1 and how well it is tuned-in

That was my dilemma about a 2 months ago. I couldn’t wait no longer and purchased the k1. But I also purchased this light about 2 weeks ago as well. I’ll report back as soon as I get it

Would the T9R work using an SST20 LED? I think one in 4000K 95CRI would be awesome!

Thanks for your answer. You ordered it 6 days before me. I hope they soon send me mine. In my case, I chose the Osram CULNM1

Cool. I have the slower shipping method, so; it may take a while.

My Concern- i don’t own a FF light, i have wanted an E07 and E01 for awhile, think their style/aesthetic are nice, sounds liek their performance is very good, but i have read so many mixed reviews about quality, issues, and most importantly customer service.

I bought almost 2 dozen FF lights in the past years. Generally the quality is good especially considering it was their first generation. I had one light with driver issue which FF sent a replacement and another light with one dead aux light. This is one of the reasons why FF decided to make an expensive new premium driver that is not typical for budget lights. I also asked them to make sure to check the aux lights are working fine before shipping.

FF may take a while to respond because they are a small company and Jack likely doesn’t go online often. Sometimes it takes weeks and once even months when they were known as Enogear but he will eventually respond and fix the problem for you. He even sent me a freebie once or twice for waiting a long time.

With the experience gained and lessons learned from their previous lights, FF knows exactly where to improve, and I believe the new lights will be much higher quality. One thing I appreciate about FF compared to the typical flashlight manufacturers is that they actually have a passion for flashlights and always pushing boundaries, not only with lumens and candelas but also with tint, UI, and efficiency that other manufacturers don’t care about because the average customers don’t pay attention or understand the importance of these specs when they purchase flashlights.

I have a bunch of new FF lights ordered and will post some test results as usual.

Look forward to your results!
FF from my examples have been high quality with good value. Hiccups happen.

That would be a nice option to get with the newest FireFlies efficient driver. SST-20 4000K 95CRI is the nicest thrower emitter anyone can get currently (3500K would be also a very good choice).

Also, 3500K is a very good choice for E21A (to be used in NOV-MU).

I’m thinking the same thing, Quad Thrower.
Hopefully will be compact.
