I want to build or find a P60 drop-in with a tint close to incan. I love the light color of my mini-maglite.
I have found this : bare Cree XM-L2 S6, 7D3 Tint (~2900K) 90+ CRI > https://illuminationsupply.com/bare-leds-c-52_36_88/cree-xml2-bare-s6-7d3-tint-2900k-90-cri-p-615.html
But $34.69 shipping cost for France… And I have never tried reflow.
Or the IOS XM-L2 T4 5B1 (80CRI Min.) but its only 80 CRI and Neutral White…
I can only wait since a store sell it at a realistic price ?
You could ask illuminationsupply if shipping could be lower since a single bare emitter should fit in a padded envelope.
Reflowing is easy. FT solder paste
Unfortunately trackable shipping is that cost since the only option is Priority Mail International. If you want to opt for non-trackable First Class International, the cost is around $6.41 Until the USPS makes their international shipping rates more affordable, I'm afraid there's not much we can do.
Oh yea, I believe USPS raised international shipping rates.
CalvinIS, your fast.
If you only want XML there isn’t many options.
Nichias are available in warm white 92 typical CRI.
An immediate reply from Illumination supply ! This is what I call a wonderful service quality.
Its a reasonable price considering the rarity of the item, is there will be an star-mounted version or in option ?
Unfortunately I do not believe we will be carrying a star option, our sales numbers of mounted LEDs have been falling and sales for high CRI are an even smaller niche.
I can re-flow a brand new one onto a copper Noctigon for you.
It would cost you 15$ with shipping. PM me if you are interested.
I could easily throw in something extra for a low price (WW (92CRI) Nichia 119 or something..
Just putting the price out in the public in case anyone wants to make you a better offer.
PM me if you are interested.
