    Default Anyone interested in group buy for Polarion PH50D?

    We are thinking of organizing a group to bring in 10-50 PH50D. Condition: brand new, full Polarion warranty, in hard plastic case. Vintage 2017. Final price point would depend on # of participant. Could approach $1500. Please PM as needed.

    If it was short-arc, like 1mm with focusing.
    But ~4-5 mm arc is disrupted by overdriven LED's

    That price point may not be so appealing depending on where the customer is purchasing from. Throw in international shipping and possible customs fees/holds, and don't forget shipping li-ion batteries, purchasing from there becomes less appealing. Because Polarion Sparetech is US based, it is primarily catering to a US audience.

    Interesting idea for a group buy. Best of luck with it.

    I might be interested but I already have a PH40. :-)
    It is better to buy a beautiful, expensive, custom flashlight than to curse the darkness.

    Had a PH40 and miss it..was a fantastic light! Looks like the PH50D has some nice improvements and would be great to have in one's arsenal.

    Sparetech ships WW, from our US and Asia warehouses. If enough people are interested, we will work out a price sheet with variations to account for shipping and VAT. We find that shipping is roughly equivalent but VAT rates are not. Example: Light in USA may be $1500 + $25 for ground shipping. Light in Norway may be $1500 + $100 for shipping + 25% VAT. At any rate, PM as needed.

    Did they do anything about the parasitic current draw while the light is turned off?

    Yes. This problem had been rectified in new vintage batteries. You can read up on it on this forum. The new batteries are more powerful, 5200 mAh vs 4400 mAh.

    The PH50D is a different light. The PH50 has not been made for a few years. The bulb burns at 30 W and 50 W, temperature 4300 K, 4500 lumens (at 50 W). We don't have the illuminance information at different distances (hahoo question). Factory has been notified and we will repost when data available. as noted on Polarion-store: usable range depends on atmospheric conditions. Rain, moisture, dust, all contribute to shortening the range of any light source (by scattering the beam). We don't comment on other products but in general, Polarion has a good form factor (shorter reflector assembly, more balanced weight). It's not a modzilla light but a great tactical light that meets to needs of the most demanding end-users.
