There won’t be any changes to earlier ones, except a small hole for split ring will be added. (yippee!)

Two months ago I ordered some of these, and they disappeared shortly after being shipped (last tracking update was in August). Maybe I will be able to get Gearbest to re-ship me these new and improved models? A man can dream, right?

Put me down for 2 with box non-engraved and 1 without box engraved.

Do they usually manufacture some extras if I decide to get more at a later date (but not too much later, before they sell out)?

Thanks.

Is there any possibility to get a 3 Mode (low, mid, high) driver in this flashlight?
The one Mode is the biggest disadvantage. I already have some flashlights of the former batches.

Asked multiple times, but factory repeatedly says that it’s not possible to have a 3-mode driver in this small size. Maybe some of us should design a good driver just to show them? Smile

Anyways.. I still think the simple single mode UI makes this light a very good gift.

The only change I would personally care to see is an update to the same tint but in a 219C instead of 219B. Moore efficiency, lower VF, more lumens and easier for the boost driver to handle as well. That said I will still get some of the old version, they are great general lights for anyone.

219C would be nice, but must be left for next round. Is it available as R9050 version yet?

Right now we want to have the same great & proven light, with same price, delivered in good time before X-mas. Smile

Yeah, I didn’t figure it was an option for this time around, I was just saying the light is basically perfect for what it is, it could just use an update to the latest gen emitters.

The data sheet shows that the 219C is available in 9050 in up to 4500k? IIRC.

A question , and not a demand or something else.

Now that the manufacturer wants minimum 1k pcs (and will produce even more i guess) shouldn’t the price be lower ?

The MOQ is related to the emitter batch they need to buy -> 1k is current minimum (to get the price low enough).

The price is already very low and can’t be any lower. I tried, hard, trust me. Smile

I’ve read different statements about the 219C r9050. Sometimes it was told that this LED is not aviable. But the latest information is that the LED is aviable if you buy 3500pcs.

But 219C with CRI83 would be nice too.

I don’t speak german but I will take your word for it.

The way I understand it is that the 90+ CRI is available but only by the complete reel (aka, 3500 of them). It will remain that way until a distributor / reseller buys said reel and then resells it to people like us.

For some reason the major suppliers tend to only stock low CRI, cool white or 3000k LED’s.

It is only a matter of time before some of the 90+ 219’s become available to the general public. The question is how much time.
