Interested in 2000K + 4500K to start with.

If they work well i’ll certainly order more.

Somewhat off topic: i was very pleased when Sofirn offered a non anodized version but for some reason it tends to collect dust and dirt very easily, probably because of the combination of fine knurling and bare Al.

Please add firefly mode,it’s important for AAA light.
On night it’s useful for small inspect.

Been lurking a while. Just registered to express my interest.

Put me down for 3x at 2000K, definitely. Maybe interested in a 4500K as well.

Moonlight would be good. And please don’t get rid of the trit/magnet holes!

Interested in 2× 2000k and 2× 4500k, though if other CCTs come into play (also interested in 2700k and 5700-6500k) I might adjust that order.

I’d order at least one of each. I’d order multiples of the 4500k for gifts.

Makes me wonder why Folomov, Hank Wang, Armytek and others can source Nichia LEDs when Sofirn doesn’t even get an answer.

Smile, you cannot kill them all.

I'm sorry to tell you that Sofirn will probably no longer pursue the development of this model. I have talked to Barry today. Sofirn still has difficulties sourcing Nichia E21A emitters from their supplier(s). Eventually, they will focus on other flashlight projects. Therefore, I see no chance but to suspend this project. Sad Maybe the concept can be salvaged and continued by another manufacturer someday.

How does Hank have access to E21A but Sofirn has trouble. That’s a bummer.

Hopefully the new 3 mode, 2group C01S-DR driver can be adopted for normal white led editions.

Well, that leaves one option for 2000K, one of Hank’s lights.

I second that emotion, thanks Lux for the efforts. These would have been some sweet little flashlights.
