Kaidomain has 219B 4500K 92cri in stock

Nichia 219B
Wasn’t 219B supposed to be discontinued? Where are these surfacing from?

Thanks for the find! I went and got the Nichia 219BT Neutral White 4500K High CRI92 to replace the XPL HI 5000K in my Lumintop EDC18.smile I have another Nichia 219CT 4000K CRI80 already so curious to see the diff between CRI92 and CRI80. Is there a big difference among CRI92 and CRI80 for those who has experienced it?

Bear in mind these are R9050 sw45 rather than the currently commonly available R9080 sw45k. That means somewhat lower CRI R9 and probably a less rosy tint, though the latter may be a positive trait for some people and applications. I’m a little unclear on the provenance of this batch since the date code is obscured. The other 219Bs Kaidomain has in stock are R8000 from 2014 production, and it looks like an “E” rather than an “L” at the beginning of the lot code, which means 2014 for these as well. Of course none of this makes sense since both the 2016 datasheet and catalogue I have say 219B was unavailable in sw45, so as usual the history of 219B is quite a mystery.

Great info and I have to admit I thought the Nichia I got year ago was already high CRI? Big Smile Guess not, ahh well I’m not that so I don’t mind if it’s less rosy.

I’m skeptical as well about this KD batch. I have a feeling that it’ll turn out like a- less efficient -219C with tint a la Jon’s last photo. edit: d240 vs d240 should be a wash

I remember my first experience with 219Bs were in Eagletac D25As which were a positive Duv 4000k variation and I was so turned off from them I missed out for years on the beauty of rosy Nichia’s.

I’d recommend going with member Azhu as a source or Simon/Convoy.

So the one triple I ordered from Kaidomain will have tint like the left sample? If so, not bad I might say. I definitely see some pinkish/reddish mix. Btw that 219c tint looks orangy/yellowy like a fog light. Big Smile

Unfortunately, we are suggesting that it could be the opposite. Higher flux bins usually mean higher duv. sw45*K* is a subset of sw45, guaranteed to be rosy. Non-K sw45 can vary widely.

Wishing for the best here though. If they come out to be very neutral Duv and D240, that’s a win for us all. Long live the 219B

I don't know why you'd post a Nichia 219C when they are taking about 219B's 

 

the first 4000K 219c's were all shockingly greenish tint beasts . I remember thinking ..oh it's a Nichia ..it has to have a lovely tint ..BLAh  !...otoh I did like the tint on the 219C 5000 80cri 

 A member here  Snakebite has some 219B's for sale cheap . has anyone tried  them ?

My pic arrived here faster than me Big Smile
These 219c looks less yellow in reality. And 219b look more rosy.

Let us know what you think of the Kaidomain Nichia 219BT 4500K LEDs when you get them Hank33.

I’ve often wished to be able to get the 219B 4500K sw45 vs the sw45k. The sw45ks are great, but it would be nice to also add the sw45s to my collection assuming the Duv is acceptable.

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

I ordered 2 on 9/7, right after I saw op thread! Hoping they turn out to be what I’m thinking others have sought after!

I’ve been throwing together a lineup of converted Convoy T2’s. With Andy’s 219b’s and a Neutral creamy goodness sw4500, would be awesome. So thank you OP, if there good.

I didn’t pay the $2 extra for tracking, so no clue when they’ll be in.

Looking for Acebeam M10? PM ME

For sure, I'll wait for it and check out the tint and see what I can deduce. On a side note, I just looked at my past Kaidomain orders and actually realized that the triple Nichia I got about a year ago is a CRI92! It's the 219C 4000K and checking Kaidomain site now shows it's no longer available. Either way, I'm curious if the ordered Nichia 219B 4500K tint will be rosier than the 219C 4000K I have now? Will have to wait and see.

Well I was impatient and decided to order the triple Nichia 219BT 4500K CRI92 for myself. And included the black S2+ host with my order from Kaidomain.

I also ordered a 17mm Driver for SST40, an AR lens, and a lighted switch from the Convoy store.

And got a triple spacer, a 10511 Carclo Lens – 3-UP Frosted Narrow Spot Optic, and a Sanyo/Panasonic NCR18650GA from Mountain Electronics.

Would love to see some beamshots when you get em…

I’ve been looking at their p60 options, really budget price, never had a p60 light so been considering getting a set just to get a feel for the system.

They’ve got that kdlitker with triple and quad 219b’s. I assume the bin’s will be different compared to the ones I’m used to (FF, Hank, Simon) but if it’s still rosy-ish 4500k I’d probably still be happy with it. A 92cri is a 92cri after all…

219c is still a vast improvement over Cree Big Smile .

I’ll stick with Azhu and Convoy for 219bs.

I got my triple 219B 4500K and S2+ host 2 days ago from Kaidomain – very quick! Now I’m waiting for the driver and other parts.

It also came with a triple optic. Not sure why, but that was a pleasant surprise. Won’t be using it though since I got the 10511 Carclo optic which is my preference for triples. The MCPCB looks brass to me rather than copper, but this is my first Kaidomain LED so maybe that’s just how they look (the pic to the right shows the back of the Kaidomain MCPCB vs another one I have).

Once I get it all put together, I’ll post comparisons with my 219B sw45k and E17A SM453 LED flashlights. Fingers crossed!

if you want to use Carclo lenses, I think you need the triple board that mountain sells.. the one from Kaidomain is different (ledl?)

also the sw45 kaidomain sells is not sw45K, it is just sw45, and it is not a 9080, it is 9050.. and D240 (less pink). Imo you can do better by buying sw45k from azhu… unless youre intentionally trying to buy a non pink sw45

read post #5 for more details

that is not the droid Im looking for.. Wink

Hehe, your order arrival beat me by one day. I just received mine yesterday. Smile Kaidomain must have shipped ours out at the same time. Smile Well, I gotta get some beam shots of my current Nichia 219C 4000K and compare it to the new Nichia 219BT 4500K but not until I remove the XPL HI from the Lumintop EDC18 first.

Actually the Carclo lens fits fine on the Kaidomain MCPCB, see below. Carclo 10511 on the left, Kaidomain on the right.

I’m hoping the Kaidomain 4500K LEDs are sw45 vs sw45K. I already have the azhu sw45K LEDs which are awesome (and all the other CCTs that azhu offers), but I’ve always wanted the non-K version for my collection.

I actually like the KD optic a lot. The mcpcb is probably gold plated. Eagerly waiting to here back about tint.

I remember that Kaidomain’s triples were to thin (or holes were to wide?) to make proper contact with the shelf/pill. It can be easily verified: put carclo upsidedown, then Kaidomain’s triple, and check if optic’s legs are protruding. If not, you’re good to go.

The legs are thicker, so if you don’t user the KD mcpcb then you will have to drill them out to fit

The Kaidomain optic is a little taller than the Carclo. All 3 of the Kaidomain legs protrude thru the MCPCB whereas with the Carclo, only 1 slightly does.

Left is Carclo, right is Kaidomain:

I find that the Nichia 219BT (4500K) has quite a pronounced hot spot. It’s almost like a thrower kinda beam. Whereas my previous XPL Hi (5000K) hotspot covered a larger area, the Nichia hotspot was smaller in size.

So now the Nichia lumen strength is just a bit less than the XPL HI, Nichia hotpot is more concentrated and smaller and the tint is slightly warmer than the XPL HI. Therefore, I retain the beam distance, achieve a slightly warmer tint and the lumens are slightly less. Thumbs Up

Oh, if I slap on the Carlo 10511, then the beam’s gonna be more floody right? I have one sitting in my parts bin for who knows how long now. Plus it’s never been used yet too. LOL

The Kaidomain 219B sw45 D240 R9050 seems legit. It’s certainly not the rosy sw45k version. The tint appears very close to the BBL, maybe a little above. I don’t notice any green, but there is no rosiness at all.

If you want a non-rosy high CRI 4500K LED, this is a good option. Then again, there aren’t too many 4500K LEDs to choose from. I’m glad that I’ve added it to my collection.

Here it is next to the 219B sw45k D200 R9080 4500K LED (middle) and E17A SM453-B12-R9080 4500K LED (right):

And here it is next to the 219C 5000K 80+ CRI LED (right):

glad youre enjoying different options

fwiw, the Opple Light Master can measure XY coordinates, from which an online calculator can report and plot Tint DUV..

for example stock Olight Ti S Mini NW XM-L2:

and sw35, sw45, and sw45k:
