Got my L3 Illumination today with the Nichia 219. How can you tell when it was made? BTW, mine came with an off center LED but it doesn’t appear to affect the beam at all..


So your L10 must be from 2014 because the serial showing L4. I ordered the natural, I hope I’ll get the new unit too.

I hope you get the latest version as well. BTW, mine is the natural finish. It looks a bit darker in the photo than it does in person, at least on my monitor it does. I'm really loving this thing! 

Oh yeah, thank you Calvin and Craig for the great price and super fast shipping!

FWIW, the first two L10 pill swaps went well. I had to heat one up to melt the glue, but it wasn’t too bad. Centering the emitter can be a little finicky though, for the last little fraction of a millimeter. I found it works reasonably well to stick a sliver of paperboard between the edge of the MCPCB and the inside edge of the pill, if the emitter keeps falling to one side. It’s just floating in there on a layer of thermal paste, with the reflector holding it down. The most time-consuming part is probably just scraping off the old glue before putting it back together.

Figures. I’ve been waiting for a sale on the L10 Nichia and I missed it.

Calvin, I'd like to buy another L10 with the same JULY4 discount. Any possible way you can extend the sale?

Seems unlikely. As far as I’m aware, the L10 has never been on sale before a few days ago, and I hear the margins for it are already pretty low at regular price. I wouldn’t be surprised if IS took a loss on that sale.

Regardless, I find my $25 L3 L10-219 more generally useful than my $64 ZL SC52 or several other pricier EDCs. It’s already a good deal at regular price.

It can't hurt to try to get the same price I paid for the first one. I should have purchased more than one, but to me it was an unknown entity until I actually had one to play with. Now that I know how good the L10 is, I want to buy some more in different colors at the same price if possible...

Well Calvin certainly doesn’t owe us anything and if he said no to extending the sale, there’s no way I could fault him, but I would love to get in on that too.

It can't hurt to ask. I was never implying Calvin owes us anything other than the great service they've been giving us. It's the reason I've been a repeat customer for well over a year.

Received my L10, thank you!
Pretty quick.

My first nichia light and I like it very much!
And my wallet says I shouldn’t have done this but I ordered a second one.

I have the xp-g2 version & I like it. seems a lot brighter than 35lm in actual use.
I wanted the nichia but they were sold out when I got it.
so now I can check out a nichia.
thanks for the code.

Ordered a Rayus PT10 on the 7th got it today (15th). 8 days from the US to Aus. Will buy from IS again for sure. Won’t be buying another Rayus though. There was heaps of little bit of dust on the inside of the lens and a few big pieces of dust on the reflector. Just had to take the bezel off and clean the inside. Nothing biggie just expect not have to do that for a new light.
