Vinh: I received my D4vn Nichia 219 (5000K) today - great light! The tint appears to be a bit warmer than the stock XP-L 3A (5000K) version I bought. I think your modifications have no doubt given the Nichia version of the light a little extra "zip" where it counts. I will enjoy using this light very much, and I will appreciate your talents anew every time I turn it on. Thanks very much!
I was so close to getting this light that I could practically feel it. I ordered it as a birthday present 2.5 months ago, and supply issues got in the way. I was pretending that I'd forgotten about it until I got the ship notice. I waited...then, when the tracking showed it was at the regional hub, I charged the batteries (waiting on another light, too, and guessing that they were both inbound).
That's when things got weird. The package didn't arrive. The tracking died - it never made it to the local station. Instead, I've seen at least 5 different entries stating that it departed the regional distribution center (20 minutes away, tops). Hopefully, it will be here tomorrow.
*edited to add*
False alarm - it took a couple of days; but the postal service finally got it together... unfortunately, the D4vn was not in the box; so the wait continues.
I'm interested in the XPG2 PDT due to the added throw but I have a question. Is it available in a 4000k or warmer? Also, is the copper/titanium version still available and does anyone have a picture of it? Thanks.
Thanks for the input Mad777. I think I'll get an XPG2 PDT as well as another in a 4000k flavor. I don't see the throw and lux numbers for the SST20 listed anywhere. How does it compare to the 4000k XPL HI? Which would y'all go with and why? I really think the XPG2 PDT would be perfect for me if it were available in a 3000-4000k as I really prefer very warm lights except for dedicated throwers.
