Simon, is there a current discount code for BLF/Facebook group users? The code that was going around doesn’t work anymore.

Or do we have to use the other payment option and send a message?

The code is easier.

The code has a drawback – it does not work with Aliexpress coupons.

Sorry for my poor english.

I am glad, that it is possible now with T3 to have an AA light with an option to turn off mode memory, however the current colors are toobbright and flashy. Simon, is there a possibility to have something like gunmetal grey, desert tan or clear anodisation?

There’s always the possibility to use the T2 with the 3 driver (unless it doesn’t for some reason :x) ,

13groups driver for T2/T3

I’ve wanted a driver like this since 2012, thanks for making it!

I would liked to have a mode lower than 1% on this new bit pricely AA driver.
Just curious to know how much is bright at lower mode
As far I understand it was not possible to go below with this chip.
I hope someday will be a firefly mode,even on ramping AA headlamp.

Ive been using simon's 17mm sst20 5amp / 12 mode drivers in my 14500 lights for awhile now, they work great! this new driver would be awesome too do to duel-fuel ability, but 1.5amp output with 14500 is pretty low, no?.. I was usig sst20 2700k and 5amp with no issues in a xeno e03 14500 light.

About the SFT70, should we be expecting the same as sst40 —> sft40 : less ting shift and more power?

Any datasheet?

edit: well it doesn’t seem like it’s new 2020 taschenlampe forum

edit2: Simon already posted some datasheet info here

Dear Simon,

 

any word on that new single 26800, sbt90.2, side switch, 80mm+ head size, thrower??

 

is the driver done yet?

 

Will a sft40 driver be available for that + for M21e anytime soon?

 

Thank you!

Can anyone help?

 

What mcpcb could the sft70 go onto? Either 6volt or 12volt 7070 like one for xhp70?

 

I wonder why Simon isn't selling the SFT70 with a mcpcb? It must not be able to go onto the 6volt xhp70 mcpcb he has in stock i am assuming?

Just curious Simon but, what do you mean with “the spot is uneven”? A hole in the center of the beam appears?

I think I am going to finish a small build with a hole in the beam, since I don't care as much. Wink

I have only XHP70.2 in my Convoy’s and i never noticed anything that is not visible with non high cri models…

The beam from an XHP70.2 in a reflector has a white hotspot, an extremely lime green corona and a blue spill. There’s so much tint shift across the beam that high CRI won’t really give you much benefit.

Yea, as much as i wanna always ask the manufacturer for the best bins they can get, i agree with Rayoui here, how does Hi CRi matter with xhp70.2 when there is so much tint shift going on? meaning, which color of the rainbow actually contains the Hi CRI with xhp70.2 in a reflector light?

 

I even have one in a E7-, small OP reflector, and there is a slight Rainbow of colors from the xhp70.2

The 3rd gen should be just around the corner, with both XHP50.3 HI and XHP70.3 HI, even the domed versions probably will have a better beam color profile since there is no phosphor pour over the whole package. So at this point it’s better to wait a bit and try to source those in high CRI instead of going with the soon to be obsolete 2nd gen.

I’ve got some XHP50.3 HI 4500K 90+ CRI on order. Really looking forward to seeing how those perform.

Whoa! That's insanely snot green!  Even the hotspot looks greenish LoL. They really @#$%ed up with the second generation.

I hope for the above beamshot to exaggerate the actual appearance of the beam, because if it literally looks that way to the naked eye I really wonder how someone is willing to deal with it. For comparison purposes, just took my M1 build with White Flat 1mm² (CSLNM1.TG): hotspot is white, corona is a tiny bit greenish and spill is slightly bluish to my naked eye, but nothing major. By the way, I also noticed it needs a new centering gasket, the one I originally stuck in is asymmetric and can be seen in the beam. You can guess I haven't used it much… Innocent And then, the beam from my orange peel red S21A with 3500K GA3 SST-20 is absolutely beautiful.

Hi Simon,

I have an S12 UV and I’m interested in installing one of your 8A 12 Group drivers into it. Is it compatible or would 8A be too much current?

Thanks!

Any chance we will see just the host for sale soon, since that’s not dependent on driver supply? And will there be a non-e-switch version. Thanks!

How’d you manage to get that shipped to the US? Pretty slick light. I can’t even see the listing for it unless I follow a google link with no ali in cookies/history…otherwise it blanks it out because he’s honoring that patent and won’t ship here (same happens on Banggood lately).

Might look to see if that emitter was covered in Djozz’s tests but a quick peek at the data sheet for it says a max of 1.4A and with UV emitters that max is usually accurate (as opposed to white emitters which we happily overdrive the heck out of). That driver would optimistically give 2.5A per emitter which I suspect would fry them in short order unless legit tests have shown otherwise. Not sure I’d push 2A on them if they’re anything like the ones from Nichia and LG in terms of respecting that current max on the sheets. I think his 6A drivers would be fine, maybe use smaller wires and remove any spring mods if present. Seems like that driver puts out something around 5.6A or so based on other comments here.

I got it through a group buy on r/flashlight. A couple users in & outside the US imported a bunch of them.

Guess you are speaking about the “8A driver for CULPM1.TG”, doesn't it? That is a buck driver, it will deliver the full output current for as long as its input voltage is high enough. In this sense it behaves as the linear variable load drivers like the 6A units you mention, if only with higher efficiency as it is a switching driver.

Correllux says “optimistically 2.5A per emitter”, I guess you are talking about a triple. But 8A / 3 = 2.6̅ = ≈2.667A, which is slightly higher. Don't presume, but measure.

If you want to make 100% sure that the driver doesn't frys your emitters the key is to change its onboard sense resistor. For this you first take a close look at the driver board, find the sense resistor and note down its value. The sense resistor is a bigass, low value precision resistor which should be near the edge of the board. I think it is a 10mΩ unit in such driver. Then, you calculate the driver's sense voltage: Vsense = I × R, and so Vsense = 8A × 10mΩ = 80mV. With this in mind, you can now calculate the maximum regulated current for other sense resistor values: for 20mΩ, I = Vsense / R = 80mV / 20mΩ = 4A; for 18mΩ, I = 80mV / 18mΩ = 4.4̅A = ≈4.444A; for 16mΩ, 5A; for 15mΩ, 5.3̅A = ≈5.333A…

Just in case it is of help had this link with 1206 R015s for sale in my wishlist, which is nice enough I think. However, I do not know 100% sure if the onboard sense resistor is 1206… Innocent 

 

By the way, I wouldn't build triples in parallel, it's waay better to set them in series and use a boost driver, because:

  • With leds in series the current is exactly the same for each emitter.
  • A boost driver (like this “XHP35” one) ensures full output drive current and power regardless of input voltage or battery state of charge (as long as it meets the bare minimum, of course).

Of course you need a compatible size and arrangement triple MCPCB (KD has this thing, but no idea if it would fit).
