Just another news, shippment might be faster than expected.  Nichia has arrived, it's the new 219C instead of 219B.

Excellent news indeed.
I’ll take the 219C as I already own a custom Tri-EDC on 219B

My tracking shows that my light just left Shanghai Airport this morning.
So hopefully I can receive mine before end of next week. Fingers crossed.

Registered mail using China Post can take ages.
Took them 5 working days to leave mainland China.

i got mine today the tube looks good the driver is a click orgy with no peak for me you need a list with hidden modes to get where you want because after 3 sec. its jumps as next to low for me i have to re flash it with new code there comes my question how to get the pill out i got a small copper ring out but there are no dents to screw out the pill with the driver and led also my tail stand is very wobble it stands more in the switch then on the tail out ring and my switch with the trit is off center the U and I the grinding is not in the center of the round button. is this only on mine or a general error ?? the left screw of the clip is not well screwed in but the HEX of the screw is worn off so i cant screw it in nor out anymore. and behind the optical lens i got some black spot. !Image and video hosting by TinyPic!

Hi,

Sorry for the trouble.  You can take out the pill by a circlip pliers.     Some of the metal buttons, yes,  U and I are not perfectly centered.

I can ship you another one if you prefer.  The worn HEX arrived dead or ?  

After taking out the pill, the black spot under the optic might be able to get cleaned?

Best Regards

Rey

hello rey thanks for the fast answer yes i prefer a centered button

i took the ring which covers the driver out but then the main part i couldn’t get out there are no dents for to get into the pill.

yes the screw arrived like that its also not 100% in maybe it was a tiny bit to long so it couldn’t get in all the way and that made the hex break.

I received this light as  a host and the first thing i did was take a metal saw and sawing two grooves opposite each other in the battery side of the pill, for the purpose of getting the pill out again once screwed in. You can not do that of course but perhaps take small pliers, place them inside the pill, and while applying outward force and try screwing the pill out like that?

thanks for that tip i tried that bnut you cant use much force as if you slip off with the pliers the treads will be gone on the soft copper so thats really not an option in my opinion this is an absolute design failure its not possible to get this pill out without the risk of damaging it the treads or the driver.

i mean for a light in this class mistakes like that shouldn’t happened.

lets see rey still didnt reply maybe there is a way i just didnt try or think of yet.

'a light in this class'

This is a light from Rey. And Rey is great in that he dares to do unique things, he gets things done that others can not get done. And his prices are good.

But he's not a perfectionist (like i.e. Don from McGizmo), every one of his projects has some shortcomings (although the adapted copper Tool he managed to get done with Lumintop I find pretty close to perfect), and I accept that as the way it is and for the price payed I think it is ok.

 

One more idea for your pill: I do not know how long the ledwires are, but can you carefully pry the driver board on its side and so create more depth for the pliers to get a grip?

I usually use pliers to take out the pill. It's not very tight, so the damange isn't always happening. If it does, I will send another one to you.

djozz the whole head is quiet deep i put the driver on its side without that its noway to get in there at all the treads of the ring and to shrot to get in there at all with pliers.

the light is great and that sits more a prototype then a series run is clear but if we cant change led optics or drivers its more like a one way light after the optics broken the light is done
i also think the copper pill will oxide and will be harder to get out by then then now fresh clean clear.

Anyone seeing any issues with batteries fitting and which batteries will fit?

My light seems to be slightly tapered at the tail end… not to mention, Purple Efests are the only thing that I can get to actually fit. My 30Qs, MJ1s, or HG2s won’t even go inside the light. Neither will my 18350s, but a 16340 does. Makes me think the inner bore is off. Anyone able to confirm if any of the above batteries work in your light?

I say I think it may be tapered slightly, because I have to back the switch out just a hair to be able to make a complete circuit. This leaves the switch rattling, and a slight gap in the threads at whatever section is tightened down last. I also see this behavior with the middle section both on and off.

So, I think my issues are 1) inner bore too small & 2) slight taper at tail… but Rey asked me to post here and see what everyone else thought. So, what do you guys think?
