Hard workaround to make an order work!  If you order many small items from Simon the shipping costs for each item get totaled and skyrocket even though they will all go in one small package.  I ended up for now ordering the same items elsewhere on aliexpress with free shipping until there is a way to work around this.  It shouldn't be so difficult just to order something.

Yes, this is something I was also aware long ago. In Simon's shop any and all items feature “built in” shipping cost, this means the basic shipping cost is included in the price of the first unit of whatever thing. If this were a very small amount, this could work, but it is not a small amount and so it doesn't works.

The solution is to set the shipping cost independently, so the actual item value is reflected in its price. Allow the shipping cost to add afterwards. Many AliExpress sellers do it this way, and it works. As sellers, you are fully responsible for both the costs of items and the cost of shipping and handling. After all, what the buyer sees is the total to be paid, this is what counts.

Deleting a just published post causes the forum thread answer notification to fail. Thus, if you need to change your just published post, edit it. Thanks.

Please avoid fully quoting lenghty posts, namely with nested quotes. Trim quotes down to the essential. Helps with neatness and legibility. Thanks.

That's the thing, shipping is not cheap for minor items and when you order so many different little items together, it just isn't worth it.  I always prefer to order from Simon as he is a good guy, always helpful and knowledgeable, but it would be nice if he could make it easier to adjust the shipping.

Sorry to know that it didn't work Oops It is a sometimes weird site/app. I normally use the app instead of the site, so I don't know if there are differences. I hope you manage to get it done in a next time and that you receive your stuff now ;)

 

By app I guess you mean  you order from your phone which I have not done myself yet, just from my pc at the moment.

Simon,

In your store the cslnm1 comes bare or on mcpcb, what diameters are available for the mcpcb? I need to measure mine but just seeing if you have options.

Also, can you sell board mcpcb only for the CULPM1? 4040 footprint that is. Thank you!

Bare LEDs and LEDs on MCPCB and bare MCPCB are all listed.

Options are typically 16 and 20mm and you can almost always sand them down to get inbetween or smaller sizes.

If you had no choice you could even put a 3030 or 4040 LED on most 3535 MCPCB’s but they dont center well and may not have the best thermal path.

Thank you!

The 17mm driver for RED LEDs.

Will work with an S2+ pill when the threaded retaining ring is used? Do the components on the battery side interfere?

Thanks.

Simon,

Still looking for a replacement L2 reflector, with ∅9mm bottom hole and smooth.

Recently checked AE L21A Culpm1, there already had some reviewer, sadly no beamshot. I actually really curious, what is the candela’s amount??hmm

In search of the most ideal flashlight in town:
1. BRIGHTNESS
2. Durabillity
3. Design
4. Quality
5. Price$$$

It was stated by Simon with 1190m throw. So by calculation. It’s roughly 350kcd.

I have only see 2 tests so far. 1 is from Funtastic (his own biuld). Another from Chinese reviewer. Both of them get more than 1300m throw.

Will need more reviews and tests from others.

Hello everyone,

I’m buying my first true flashlight. The convoy S2+ is the obvious choice.
I’ve been studying, reading and comparing for some time, to decide on SST-40.

This was true, until I recently discovered Simon offers S2+ with LH351D with new 5AMP (non 7185) driver.
I checked specifications along with test here on BLF online – and it seems that 3AMP is maximum with LH351D, unless I want to risk my led to burn.

The question is – how does the 5AMP driver works with LH351D? Doesn’t it destroy the led? Is this driver safe with this led? Or do I need to set the 12group driver to e.g. 0.1% 1% 10% 50% and never put it on 100%?

Please can you explain?

It works fine. Search for ‘lh351d test’ within this forum. It can withstand way higher amperage than 3A.

Yeah, the only thing that I would consider limiting to 3A is Nichia emitters – E21A a lot less, but 219b is about 3A. LH351D, I’d throw 5A at it without blinking.

Last time I selected webmoney as a payment method, it sent me to webmoney website then I closed the page, the order was left ”unpaid” and I could ask Simon for blf discount/consolidate shipping costs

This is, what I’ve been refering to: Samsung LH351D 5000k LED output test by Texas_Ace

Quote:
The dome started to burn around 5A but after scraping off the burnt area it completed the test just fine and a retest after it was over showed only a few lumen loss at 1A even after all that abuse.

I’m confused now. Is there anything, that I’m missing here?

That test is what we have to refer to but I've been using a Convoy 4 mode, 6A driver in an S21A for a while and there's been no issue.

In fact, what I've seen in my SP32A, D80v2 and the S21A with a LH351D is no amp reading higher than 5.5A. So, I think that LED will be fine with a good thermal path.

Personally, I'd go with an SST40 unless the hi CRI is all out necessary.

Has anyone else had an issue with the Omten switches squeaking? I have a fairly new S6 and S2+, and both switches squeak on half presses? Anything I can do to quiet them down?

Squeeking on half press is normal because that operation last half a second usualy...

Squeeking while released is bad. Poor conductivity. That problem i have on M21C with xhp35 driver and high power emitter

Excuse me, do you mean that 2.5A red led driver cannot be used in a S2+ host? It is 17 mm wide, isn’t it? Will it fit into S3 host then? Because I need a small red light, and I have already ordered red osram on a 16 mm board.

And for this setup, a 6×7135 driver would be the best. S2+ body is small, so even 8×7135 is too much – considering, that this LED does not tolerate heat as much, as many others – so it either needs limited power or good heatsinking with a good amount of thermal surface.

Gents, you haven’t done your homeork...

KY CSLNM1.FY uses the same driver as RED Osram which means low Vf of 2.5V.

So my question still is: is 2.5V driver compatible with S2+?

I would be happy with a 4*7135. Really just want to be able to run it as bright as possible without getting too hot for around 10 minutes (for photography lighting).

it can be installed in S3 and C8,
but S2+ is not suitable
