Kaidomain has 219B 4500K 92cri in stock

Nichia 219B
Wasn’t 219B supposed to be discontinued? Where are these surfacing from?

Thanks for the find! I went and got the Nichia 219BT Neutral White 4500K High CRI92 to replace the XPL HI 5000K in my Lumintop EDC18.smile I have another Nichia 219CT 4000K CRI80 already so curious to see the diff between CRI92 and CRI80. Is there a big difference among CRI92 and CRI80 for those who has experienced it?

Bear in mind these are R9050 sw45 rather than the currently commonly available R9080 sw45k. That means somewhat lower CRI R9 and probably a less rosy tint, though the latter may be a positive trait for some people and applications. I’m a little unclear on the provenance of this batch since the date code is obscured. The other 219Bs Kaidomain has in stock are R8000 from 2014 production, and it looks like an “E” rather than an “L” at the beginning of the lot code, which means 2014 for these as well. Of course none of this makes sense since both the 2016 datasheet and catalogue I have say 219B was unavailable in sw45, so as usual the history of 219B is quite a mystery.

Great info and I have to admit I thought the Nichia I got year ago was already high CRI? Big Smile Guess not, ahh well I’m not that so I don’t mind if it’s less rosy.

I’m skeptical as well about this KD batch. I have a feeling that it’ll turn out like a- less efficient -219C with tint a la Jon’s last photo. edit: d240 vs d240 should be a wash

I remember my first experience with 219Bs were in Eagletac D25As which were a positive Duv 4000k variation and I was so turned off from them I missed out for years on the beauty of rosy Nichia’s.

I’d recommend going with member Azhu as a source or Simon/Convoy.

So the one triple I ordered from Kaidomain will have tint like the left sample? If so, not bad I might say. I definitely see some pinkish/reddish mix. Btw that 219c tint looks orangy/yellowy like a fog light. Big Smile

Unfortunately, we are suggesting that it could be the opposite. Higher flux bins usually mean higher duv. sw45*K* is a subset of sw45, guaranteed to be rosy. Non-K sw45 can vary widely.

Wishing for the best here though. If they come out to be very neutral Duv and D240, that’s a win for us all. Long live the 219B

I don't know why you'd post a Nichia 219C when they are taking about 219B's 

 

the first 4000K 219c's were all shockingly greenish tint beasts . I remember thinking ..oh it's a Nichia ..it has to have a lovely tint ..BLAh  !...otoh I did like the tint on the 219C 5000 80cri 

 A member here  Snakebite has some 219B's for sale cheap . has anyone tried  them ?

My pic arrived here faster than me Big Smile
These 219c looks less yellow in reality. And 219b look more rosy.

Let us know what you think of the Kaidomain Nichia 219BT 4500K LEDs when you get them Hank33.

I’ve often wished to be able to get the 219B 4500K sw45 vs the sw45k. The sw45ks are great, but it would be nice to also add the sw45s to my collection assuming the Duv is acceptable.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I ordered 2 on 9/7, right after I saw op thread! Hoping they turn out to be what I’m thinking others have sought after!

I’ve been throwing together a lineup of converted Convoy T2’s. With Andy’s 219b’s and a Neutral creamy goodness sw4500, would be awesome. So thank you OP, if there good.

I didn’t pay the $2 extra for tracking, so no clue when they’ll be in.

For sure, I'll wait for it and check out the tint and see what I can deduce. On a side note, I just looked at my past Kaidomain orders and actually realized that the triple Nichia I got about a year ago is a CRI92! It's the 219C 4000K and checking Kaidomain site now shows it's no longer available. Either way, I'm curious if the ordered Nichia 219B 4500K tint will be rosier than the 219C 4000K I have now? Will have to wait and see.
