Carpet Light

Hows that for a subject? Smile

I’m often buying stuff to flip houses, including carpets. Not always in well lit places.
Dim light or unnatural colors.
My solution….
I want a high CRI light. Has to have a bright and very wide beam.
Daylight color. That’s a though one as daylight comes in many Ks. So lets say 6000K.
Must be an EDC light.

Hints, tips?

so are they used carpets? do you use UV to check for stains?

I’d say go 4000K-5000K, not 6000K, it’s too white/blue.

I’m going to guess from your description that a normal 500 lumen drop-in might not do it.

If I was going carpet-shagging in the dark and dim warehouse or wherever, I’d grab my 219b FIreflies ROT66, very floody, 5000 lumens, infinite/ramping UI, and they come with holsters. Whether directly lit or by candle you’ll have a good look.

Not used but new carpets. Overstock, bankruptcy sales, auction, that sort stuff. Not just carpets BTW. Also wooden flooring, sinks, complete kitchens, etc.

No, I doubt 500 lumen will cut it. Especially not because I want a very wide beam. A 120 degree beam would be ideal, but not realistic. Dunno what the maxium beam angle is.

ROT66… I’ve won that one a few months back here on BLF. I had it shipped to a friend who I’ll meet in 6 weeks. No idea which of the many versions FireFlies shipped. Would be great if it’s a 219b. Then I could test and see it fits my needs.
Does it have a hotspot?

The nichia 219b is mostly flood, though an SST-20 hi cri would do well too, just a bit more of a hotspot. Either of the last two should work well in a warmer color temp, which I think works better for wood too. It’s too easy to whitewash wood with 6000k, but I’m sure your experience tells you what it might actually look like in natural light. The ROT66 has an extremely wide beam in the dark, it’s much wider than any of my Emisar D4S. In only mention the D4S because there are lots of beam shots on here you’ve seen I’m sure, and I own four of each, ROT66 easily wins on flood and lumens. It would be my pick for that job.
