Neal sent me photos ( and also an incoming light ) of his newest Nightwatch NI40 but with a new OSRAM led, the S2WP.
The current page in Neal’s site of the NI40: Nigthwatch NI40 (the S2WP not yet included )
Compare its KCD to the other leds, not bad throw and lumen output combination at all!
————————————————————————- the NI40 in between the NA40 (top) and the long throw Flat-White-equipped IRA-lite series.
I really love how Nightwatch offers the best leds around. Dedomed sst-40. Sliced and diced xhp50.2. S2wp. White Flat. Nearly all the best choices out there.
At the same time I really really miss good e-swich ui…….and I so dislike the bulk added by tail clicky…
But why do we need it? The SBT-90 Gen2 has a single die of basically the same size (=> no donut hole) and is really not too expensive for what it does. The luminance should also be similar. I guess a 2S2P or even 4S configuration of the Osram LED might make sense in some applications, the drivers are smaller and cheaper this way.
