I believe, from looking at the thread specs, the Astrolux A01 is simply the 4000K version of the same 219B-V1 as is in the BLF 348, which is a 5000K LED.

So if you get a BLF 348 and an Astrolux A01, you can have the same emitter in 4000K and 5000K…


That’s what I was trying to say, I’m quite sure it is.

Yeah, and if you want that emitter in 5700K, thus coolwhite high CRI R9050 spec, you can get one of the 5700K rated Jaxman lights with Nichia emitter at fasttech, or get the 4000K ones if you prefer that. That way you can have a lot more lumens, because those are 18650 lights.

Thanks, I thought so… I just wanted to make sure myself by re-reading the other thread.

It is a real nice tint to me at 4000K….

Yep, I also like that 4000K emitter. I prefer both the 4000K and the 5700K over the 5000K with the Nichia V1’s.

Is the Nichia in the ReyLight and Lumintop Tool also similar?:

If those numbers are correct, then yes, it would be the same as the Reylight and the Tool. I do not have either of those though, so I am relying on the description you posted.

Cool! I just ordered a Astrolux A01 (4000K), to go along with my upcoming orders of the BLF348 (5000K). I love Nichia 219’s! They’re not as bright or efficient as Crees, but for small lights they’re great. I have no idea if the GB for the Astrolux is still on, but as was earlier mentioned, the current BG price isn’t much different than the GB was.

Yes it is still on, and the main difference is if a new attachment point can be brought to life. The possibility of a copper and a stainless steel version is afloat as well…

The stock ones with the code are still a great light, so do not wait if you want one…

I just got in my other two I ordered after I gave away the other ones I received for a review. They look great and seem to be the same quality of the ones sent for review. Still an impressive little light.

ReManG was right about raising the price. Bangood now has it listed at 11.95

Heh, how about that! I just got in my order last week for the cheaper price. I think I’d still have ordered at the $11.95 price, but it’s nice to get it a couple bucks cheaper.

The code in OP works.

Thanks antiparanoico! I am on my phone and the BG site said I had to log in first, and I did not have my password on me…

So what’s it going for with code now? Haven’t received the one I ordered yet. If like will try another color.

thanks for the link to the photos:

neither of those view angles are available by looking at the LED in the photo I posted

in any case, can you explain what a 219B does different in terms of CCT and CRI, than a 219B-V1? Im still happy the Astrolux A01 has higher CRI than my 219A leds.

FYI, I opened up two of my lights to have a look at both the 219B and the 219B-V1 from the side when already mounted. And yes, I can confirm that you can differentiate the two in that way. The 219B really shows small metall areas on the sides of the cathode and anode, where the 219B-V1 does not. You have to look closely though, because it’s the place where some excess solder comes out with most of the boards.

$8.95 with the code.

I checked my A01 and took a crappy photo with my cellphone and an old Sipik 68 lens as a macro. It did not come out clean but it does show that the LED is a V1 219B, no exposed metal…

nice, that's the first 100% proof, I guess. wink

 

You maybe want to clean that dome with isopropyl alcohol and let it ventilate a bit. laugh

Yes, I did clean the dome after the pic. For some reason, me and any kind of heatsink goo have an affinity for each other… I cannot keep that stuff off of my fingers, and thus off of emitters. I use gloves on the high power stuff, this was just a quick pic and it still ended up like that… LOL

haha, I know too good what you’re talking about. I’m overly careful keeping my emitters clean, but they still manage to collect all different kinds of stuff you don’t want on them. With dedomed emitters it’s a real PITA.

Is that chips in the dome, or heat sink paste? Awful from stock like that. I cleaned my self induced messy one ip with some 90% alcohol on a Qtip. I would let Banggood know as well…

It is mechanical scratch. I tried to clean that with cotton pad and isopropyl alcohol.
I reported that to Banggood, we’ll see what will be a response.
