It just came into my possession. That was fast! Thumbs Up

Question: Why isn’t this LED no longer in production? Or is it? And why isn’t or wasn’t it used more often? The color is a dream, even more than the Yuji 3200K among 5mm LEDs.

I like this light very much, even if it’s not as bright as expected. Surely nowhere near 300 lm.

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

ReyLight can we get some clarification on the so called 300 lumens when using 10440 when users claim its no way near that?

I wouldn’t expect a response for a while since it’s a holiday in China for several more days. Really only one sample has been measured which could just be a dud.

I used the word measured on purpose.

Visual estimation of lumen output is about as accurate as “seat of the pants” horsepower. IMHO

I’m not saying it doesn’t appear dimmer to the user who said so, just that it is not a measurement and human vision is tricky.

There very well could be a design issue also. I’m just saying it a bit early to jump to conclusions.

Coaster is right, my estimation might be wrong. I can only compare with lights that have a different beam and color, unfortunately. There’s not so much difference between 180 and 300 lm that everyone would see it immediately without direct comparison. And maybe I am influenced by the reported measurement.

Quick measurement in bathroom:

D4V2 SST-20@3000K, 100 lm equal 6 lx

Olight S1R II 1000 lm equal 69 lx

Pineapple maximum = 10 lx, equals between 145 and 167 lm with the above standards.

all measurements done with Benetech GM1020.

Edit: I still might be completely wrong!

I kept it default, so whatever mode it came from the factory as.

Try changing modes. Lexel’s Bistro drivers i’ve got had to be programmed otherwise they deliver only 50%. 
not reprogrammed but correct group should be chosen from options menu

I lost the manual so don’t know how to change modes. I wish Rey would post the manual on his website.

Eight half-clicks, light blinks once, then flickers. Now do one half-click and you’re in first mode group.

Reverse clicky switch. Full click to turn on or off, half click (tap) to cycle modes.
Program: When the light is on, quickly half click 8+ times.
1. Select different modes groups. (1-4 groups)
2. Turn on or off memory function. (Default is off)
3. Turn off or on moonlight mode. (Default is on)
4. Mode order. L-M-H → H-M-L (ascending or descending)
5. Reset.
Shortcuts: Quick double clicks = turbo
Modes groups #1-4.
1. moon-2-20-100%
2. moon-10-40-100%
3. moon-2-10-50%
4. moon-50-100%-strobe-SOS

I noticed the trit is glued, but not covered by the glue. Is it advisable to apply some extra UV curing glue to completely cover the vial? It seems quite fragile.

Edit: I did, and I’m happy I did Big Smile Thumbs Up Looks much better.

I just received mine and did a very rough test with freshly charged AAA batteries. Using the Android ceilingbouce app I get 8 lux/lumen for the Reylight and 9 for my Prometheus Beta QRv2.

Switch to a freshly charged Efest 10440 and I get 28 lux/lumen, although it does drop quite quickly. This seems promising in regard to the claimed performance figures.

Bonum commune communitatis.

Yarp.

Another measurement: Tip CRI 2017, 240 lm, 12 lx. That would make the Pineapple Mini (10 lx in bathroom) 200 lm. Still not there.

Yep I tried all the modes. Tried everything and no change to the turbo output with lithium ion

Mode 3 only goes up to 50%. Besides double clicking suppose to bring it to turbo.

Just got mine today . First Reylight for me . I got 240 lms out of mine from a fresh charge PKcell . 204 from the battery that came with it . It’s a nice little light . Got the green trit. 13 days from order to arrival. I think that’s the best I have ever had . Thanks Rey !

Lost the manual? There was no manual. But the plastic case was nice!

I love the style and emitter on this light but the programming UI is awkward and the instructions from the website are unclear. After you half click 8 times and it goes into blinky mode, are the numbered items the number of half clicks required? i.e. 3 half clicks to toggle moonlight mode?

Can someone post real instructions for this light?

No. The light blinks out the menu number, then flickers. While it flickers, you half-press the button for e.g. the mode number. Wait until flicker ends and switch the light of. Done.

To get into Moon-Menu, wait for the light to flash three times and subsequent flickering. Now do a half-press or two (unfortunately, that is not clear to me, but you can try).

Ok?

Got it. Nice light. Definitely rosy tint. Trit neat and tidy. Thanks Rey!

Real max lumens? – you all sort it out and let me know. I am happy either way.

HI Rey,

 

Do you shipped in the Philippines.... does the USD 5 shipping cost still in effect?

Thank you

That made complete sense and worked flawlessly. Thank you for your help!
