Where do you see the reflector?

Just got my YLP Unicorn with the 20% discount.

10 days delivery to UK, no problems, I did get order acknowledgement and shipping tracking email.

Very happy with it, very good packaging, good build, the tube is aligned nicely with the head (although different to the photos). Knurling is a bit agressive, might have to smooth down for pocket use, but ideal for Convoy S2 holster.






LED tint is beautiful, I like warm neutrals and colour rendition is the best I own.

Interface is great, I really like the ramp on/ramp off, and also that you can drop back from turbo with a single click.

Very pleased, might get the Panda 3 now to compliment it.

Sorry, can’t post pictures from work. Maybe my eyes are playing with me but on the second picture (the one below 322M statement) I can see something aroung the diode. I thought it’s a tiny reflector which apparently might make sense if it limits loses of light.

Dang, missed the Unicorn 1.0 20% off by a day. Any chance of a new code for the Unicorn 1.0?

Thanks

Here you can see the head disassembled:

There’s white plastic around the head but does it act as a reflector? I’m note sure.
Note that the LED post there is different from the one that YLP shows, it’s not circular but has 2 flats.

Not now.
I’ll ask YLP about new discounts, but they will be applied to other lights. Maybe Sherp and/or something else… Wink

You can also use coupon BLF-10 with 10% discount for Unicorn (as well as for any other YLP-lights).

We are currently working on several interesting projects, but it’s too early yet to say anything certain about them =)
I hope that in 2020 YLP will release a couple of proper lights, and I will immediately inform BLF about any news Innocent

Would you consider BLF contribution into your projects? I mean suggestions ( wishes Wink ).
Or is fonarevka.ru sufficient source of ideas?

These coupons work like this: Publish a coupon for a limited time when nobody knows the product. People get interested, buy the product at a reduced price and write about the product (hopefully positive). More and more people get interested, but the coupon expired. But now people really want the product and eventually pay the full price.

(Plot twist: At some point the seller publishes another coupon (either because he needs space in storage or just because he wants to appreciate the customers) and people get angry because they bought the product for the full price and they missed the opportunity to save something, maybe even buy a second one.)

I purchased too many lights this year and seems that another one will be on the way… Facepalm

Ooops, we usually use “dd.mm.yy” style. Innocent

btw, Panda 3.0 (without battery) is available again:
https://ylplight.com/en/katalog/1/nalobnye-fonari/panda-30/
the best choice for people who already have 18650-batteries and don’t need USB charging.

Sorry if I’m asking this in the wrong place it’s my first post here. I know you have been asked about this matter previously but I was hoping you could maybe give me a little bit of insight. I love the Panda 2M CRI but as its main use will be caving, I need something more waterproof and durable… I think. Will the headlamp, especially the buttons, survive mud and dirty gloves; also the light might potentially be hit on a random rock from time to time. I also plan on washing the light after caving, will it be fine after a good high prssure rinse? Is YLP thinking about any headlamps with both high CRI and increased durability? Also wanted to get the Unicorn 1.0 but I’m scared that as soon as I’ll buy it a new version will come out in January so now I don’t know whether I should wait or are the current offerings good enough already. Thanks!

Many people use Panda 2 as a caving/digger headlamp. It is quite resistant to shock, but requires a little more accuracy when in the water or washing.
There are no same YLP-headlamps with Hi-CRI and IPX8. Cavers often use Panda-3, but without Hi-CRI

I will inform YLP about this request Smile

to All: Please, write here what else you would like to see in Panda, because this may really affect the YLP’s decisions about further models.

Do not worry, the new version will not be released in the near future.
On the contrary, I think that by the New Year Unicorns may be temporarily out of stock, because they are sold out quickly – so, if you like this light, it will be better to buy it now. Innocent

I’d certainly be interested in a high CRI Panda 3

Try to clear cookies on ylp site and it should work. Had this problem before.
Love my Unicorn 1.0. Using it much more than FW3A.
