Fortunately or not, God doesn’t filter embryos through some cosmic idiot screen. Nor parents nor politicians neither. We are left to our own devices when it comes to that. Silly

Personally speaking I’m glad of this or I wouldn’t have made the cut. Happy Holidays. :santa:

Idiot proof flashlight. Well done. Snapped one only because quite frankly, quite fed up with shipping issues at GB…

Never ever forget and forgive. Niwal**er new kid on the block trying to act tough.

Got mine today. The tint is the cleanest white I’ve ever seen. Everything else looks blue, green or yellow in comparison.
If there’s going to be another GB with Nichia LEDs, I’ll be sure to participate again.

We checked this from manufacturer. They are not manufacturing these special models to anyone else than us (= me & Gearbest) => I would be very careful with the above mentioned aliexpress store as you 'd most probably receive fakes (or silver coin or nothing).

Just received my 2nd batch of these lights. First one was impressive, but now something went wrong. Tint is much warmer than my former ones with some green hint and the emitter itself is too yellow to be a nichia. I will try to post some beamshots and pictures of this, but I can only think it’s a regular cree in a BLF engraved tube.
Update: pics linked below. Experts please, should I start a claim on this?

Not an expert by any means, but that second LED doesn’t look like a Nichia to me…

Definitely with a wrong emitter. Please contact Gearbest support and ask for replacement.

If they don't have any replacements left, I'll send you one of mine. Smile

Just rcv'd my qty 2, finally - was shippped 11/06.

  • On a used AAA cell, I got 49 lumens
  • On a new EFEST 10440 @4.21v, I got lumens: 238 @start, 168 @30 secs with a steady drop and got pretty hot. After a min or so of rest, it returned to about 238 lumens.
Real nice white tint.

Ordered mine on Nov 14. Still Waiting… And part of me hopes I don’t like it because if I do, I should have ordered more! Oops

Mine finally came today after work! But I think I got a yellow one like you did. Is one of them engraved and the other isn’t?

Both are engraved and should be BLF editions not the regular singfire one, that’s what bothers me the most.

the that’s very kind of you, and thanks for all your efforts on the GB. But it’s not your fault that either the factory or gearbest is trying to scam people, so it would not be fair to accept your light now.
Drrr I am upset, these would have been Christmas gifts.

I don't think so. It's probably a honest mistake, like simply taking a wrong emitter when assembling the light or picking a wrong light when sending them to be engraved.

If they would like to scam us,  they would have swapped wrong emitters to everyone.

My offer is still valid: If Gearbest can't make it right, I will. Smile

I really hope these emitters make there way to other, bigger EDC lights (e.g 18650). I love the tint and the higher CRI without any hint of magenta etc. I like them so much that I’ve been trying to find a modder to make another light for me with these emitters, but so far no luck..

FWIW—the original batch of 348’s in GB were terrific! The CW is great for me—and the
“NW” was very vanilla milkshake/orange Julius tinted IF you like warmer tints.

Both http://intl-outdoor.com and http://www.mtnelectronics.com carries the emitters. They are also both known to help customers out with special requests.

OT

@RollerBoySE: thanx for the links. I have checked out them before. I’m not much of a modder, so I need the complete package, and S3 at Mtn is out of stock currently.

Send them both emails about your wishes, I’m sure something can be worked out with what’s in stock.

I’m really quite excited to get this flashlight, whenever it gets here, but I hope I get the proper version.

I have not received no engraved one ordered Oct 28th.
I have ordered engraved version Dec 3th.
At first order there were about 30$ items, but they send this flashlight separately via China Post Unregistered, others SE post unregistered.
Already received SE post package. If I will not receive in one week more, I will open dispute in case it gets lost.

Hi. Thanks for the reply.

However I already wrote back on my ticket to have it closed. I was having a hard time get a good comparison pic on how the tint is drastically different to another light I have a Nichia 219B 5000k in & while the tint appears to be off it not as if it’s a puke green or something. Thus for $6~$7 it seems to be too much trouble to get a decent beamshot. As is it’s a decent enough of a light where I’ll just close the ticket.

Afterall perhaps it really is a Nichia 219B 5000k but the tint just looks different b/c it’s in this lens & this reflector (at least I’ve always felt these variables affect an LED’s tint.)
