Thread: Standing wave of Sapphire 25's , GS and now High CRI

  1. #241

    Default Re: Standing wave of Sapphire 25's + NEW GS

    I'd love to see a beam shot of the Hi CRI VS the GS. I have a Sapphire GS and while I'd much appreciate the improved
    tint, I'd like to see how much the difference is in brightness-I don't think a slightly reduced angle would bother
    me but I'm wondering if perhaps the area illuminated is as bright, brighter, less bright than a GS. Much thanks to K2-BK-BL-RD
    for the pics showing tint

    I realize that the Arc driver make my Arc Ti AAA a lot brighter then the Sapphire, but I would think the high CRI would be about same brightness as the GS. My Arc Ti AAA is almost too bright up close, in the pitch dark, but it's nice for shining across the room, or navigating outside at night. The beam is incredibly smooth! I do will Yuji made it in 4500k tint

    Got almost 7 hours of full brightness (un-scientific, just using eyes) on a Eneloop Pro AAA with my new CRI Sapphire. I'm sure there was going to be a long taper, but stopped the test there. Love this light!

    Hi Don, hcri version sounds fantastic! Do you sell the hcri head only? I have a GS and was thinking head swap only. If so what's the price for a separate hcri head?

    Hi, sorry but I have the sets of head and pak machined in equal numbers so selling just one component would generate an orphan. Unfortunately, I ran out of the converters and am now waiting for a new batch before I can build and offer these again. I don't have an ETA yet.

    No worries, thanks for the reply! Please post when you have the converter back in stock. I'm in desperate need of a Sundrop too so I will order that at the same time.

    Don, did you have the opportunity to compare 3200k yuji led to the 5600k you are using? I have 3 versions of these leds at hand (3200x45, 3200x60, and 5600x45) and like the 3200x45 the most for low lumen applicaions.

    Somewhere in the last week i misplaced my Sapphire GS that was attached to my Swiss Army knife.
    Double loss.
    Will pick up another if I don't find my original.

    Sorry but I was only interested in the 5600k. I seek to match daylight as much as possible.

    Is there any way that we could convince you to make a batch of these with the 3200k Yuji LED? I would definitely be interested in one.

    Send me the LED's and I will build the Sapphires using them.

    Please post here if this 3200k version ever becomes available (still waiting for a 5600k converter ETA, so might just wait a while longer for a 3200k version instead. Think I would prefer a 3200k TBH).

    I am not clear on what you are waiting on but if it was the converters, I finally got them and am now offering the Sapphires again.

    Sorry for being unclear! I was waiting for your back in stock info in this thread regarding the converters, see one of my previous posts below. I realize I should just have asked you again if you had received stock. Anyways, if there is a chance for a warm 3200k version could you please post or update this thread so that I know itís available, since I prefer a warm version of this light.

    My bad for not addressing the back in stock status with a post at the end of the thread, here. Sorry. Yes, I am again offering the Sapphires. I don't have any plans to purchase the 3200k version LED but if some of you want to get some and have me make you Sapphires with them, no problem.

    No change on your position from 2016 with post #229? No two stage nor tail stand? (I really, really need a new running light. I am happy to road-test beta offerings.)

    That's just amazing. How has this matured since earlier this year?

    No plans on altering the Sapphire geometry or seeking a new converter for it at this time. However, since you have been asking for a tail standing Sapphire, for you, I will turn the lanyard eye off one leaving it with a squared off flat tail for tail standing. No lanyard attachment though. And I can stick a QTC (quantum tunneling composite) square in the pak which will give you variable output.

    Don, could you please post up a link or a park number or something so that we can be sure we are actually looking at the LEDs that are compatible with the Sapphire?
