So/ can someone please point me to a “latest” spec/photo/ Etc thread number to more quickly come up to speed of the current state? Yes I read the intro thread and saw the updates … love the ramp mode BTW… ALL lights should have a ramp feature plus the .3 Lm moon mode!
I just bought a handful of these from KD this week. I’m excited to get them into a few builds. About to pull the trigger on D4S to hold me over until this is finally available. I did already order an Amutorch SS 1xAA that’s going to to receive an sst20w and some blueing from a propane torch… but that may take a while to get here.
Actually the LH351D 4000k 90CRI from both group buys are very yellowish when compared with Cree 5D or 5A tint. When compared with the ROT66, they look green, same as in your comparison. The tint bin for both GB are T6 and T7, which is supposed to be on or below the BBL but actual testing show they are above. Some folks applied a minus green filter on their flashlights and reported very good resulting tint. Do you have any idea what tint bin Lumintop bought?
Also for next revision, I hope they consider Luminus SST-20-w 95CRI. The one sold on Kaidomain is the FB4 tint bin, which is above the BBL so is kind of yellowish like the LH351D and and 219C but Djozz tested it with a reflector and it got pretty close to the BBL. However, Fireflies was able to get the SST-20-w 95CRI 4000k in the FA3 tint bin, which is at or below the BBL and should look much better. I think this will be a much better option than the yellowish LH351D unless the reel Lumintop gets is better than the ones sold in the groupbuys.
From what I remembered, the first batch was not under the BBL. It is about the same as the 219C, which is yellowish. Mauka tested it in his Wuben TO46R and had to use minus green sheets to get it just below the BBL but output loss was I think about 17% to 20%.
