Thank you "freeme" for PM'ing the discount coupon code which was more of a discount than I was expecting.

I have a question for other forum members who may have the same issue as myself:

I live in a remote location and can only reliably receive deliveries to my P.O. Box at a US Post Office, but UPS, FedEx and other delivery services will not ship to a P.O. Box and even if they do, the US Post Office will not hand the delivery over the counter to me due to their regulations (even though they required and have my P.O. Box Number cross-referenced to my Physical Address) and USPS will eventually return the package to the sender.

QUESTION: If I use a US Postal Service "P.O. Box" as my shipping address will "Nealsgadgets" ship the package so that it eventually routes though the US Postal Service (USPS) for final delivery?

NOTE: I am signed up for "Premium P.O. Box Service" with the US Postal Service where I can have packages shipped by UPS, FedEx and other delivery services to my Post Office's physical address followed by a # sign and my P.O. Box number, but that does not always work for me especially if the seller requires the billing address for the Credit Card to be the same as the shipping address.

Also, I do not have a PayPal account. PayPal seems to work without having a PayPal account by entering Credit Card information into PayPal while checking out, but the one time I tried this for a previous order at another site, the seller would not accept my order saying my address was not "confirmed" or "verified" (I can't remember the exact wording) but it may have been because my requested shipping address (my Premium P.O. Box Service address) did not match the Credit Card billing address (my P.O. Box) that I used with PayPal. I could sign up for PayPal but would still have the same issue with the billing and shipping address not being the same.

Any advice or experiences from other forum members addressing these issues would be appreciated. Thanks.

I chose the default shipping method and live in the U.S.

Final shipping is through the U.S. Postal Service. According to tracking, mine’s made it to my local post office but is not yet out for delivery.

Given that these do seem to go through the postal service I think a P.O. Box is probably fine.

I received my two yesterday, one SST-20 4000K and one Nichia 3000K, well was supposed to be 3000K but was sent 5000K, bummer. The box was marked 3000K but is definitely cooler tint than my 4000K.

I’ve sent an email to Neal seeing what my options are.

I got my 2. 2 weeks for delivery. Excellent. They are tiny! I need to learn the new UI and programming. Maybe strip the bezel (need stainless). Not a huge fan of the clip.

Has any one done an oring mod to this switch? Is it helpful?

Just got my 4000K Nichia 219C FWAA.

I’m impressed. It’s absolutely tiny!!! It makes my Sofirn SP10B look huge.

One interesting thing to note: This is by far the narrowest triple TIR optic light I’ve seen. Unlike pretty much every other triple, the optic is not a 20mm Carclo triple TIR. Instead it appears to be a custom optic that is much narrower and smaller.

The bi-directional clip also works very well and does not feel like it sticks out too much.

I’m impressed. I think Lumintop has a real winner with this one. Hopefully they will come out with this light in Titanium and Ti-Cu. Love

I’ve got some really bad flicker on the Nichia 219C 3000K. What is the usual trouble shooting again? I tightened the retaining rings and tail then head. It’s better but not gone.

Edit: it even turns on when it is off. Not good.

The Nichia one is defective. Soldering is beyond substandard around the LEDs.

Bad defect but Kudos to Neal for handling it. Hopefully shipping me a new head. Bummer about a new defective light though.

 Ihad the same issuewith 5000k and i found loosening bezel stops this behaviour. Definetly bad solder job (see in my post on previous page). After resoldering contacts, all good

bad solder job is something that should not happen on a newly released light its not the first fw light they make they should have improved the quality on that by now. no excuses.

The camera sees it that way, but in fact when shinning it above some different stuff, my eyes see it too.
Please note that it was taken with 5000K balance on a cellphone, so it can be a bit exaggerated.
Still, there is a rosy tone on it, as far as I can tell.

I agree, the one on the right looks like vomit compared to the one on the left.

Has anyone compared the SST20 4000k with the 219C 4000K? Which one is rosier?

I already have the SST20 4k, and a 219c 4k on the way, should be here middle of next week.

I did the oring mod, which was very helpful. But I poached another light. Can someone remind me what size it is? I need to get a few more.

I just ordered three, 219c 3k, 4k and SST20 4k. I’ll just sell the ones I don’t like and keep the best of the three. Figured it won’t be hard getting rid of them lol.
