a couple more High CRI warm options

this one being more floody, with lower R9 CRI:
2700k LH351D

and this one more throwy, and higher R9 CRI
2700k SST-20

How about SW30 of Nichia 219B.

For low light use, I think sw30 is a great option, and it is the LED I choose for myself, when not using sw45k.

sw30 is less green than the LH351d and SST-20

I call this my dynamic duo
sw45k and sw30

For me a 180 lumens light it is perfect. A HDS is for me a EDC light that does not need 500+ Lumens.

I have some SWM V10R (XP-G and XM-L versions) and the "problem" (at least with the XM-L version) is that the light really gets extremely hot if it is on maximum and a LiIon cell is used. A HDS only gets warm.
I guess I told you that I also still use my old Surefire Outdoorsman lights that have 45 Lumens or ~150 Lumens depending on the light and the generation.

My brightest LED light is ~3000 Lumens, it is a Surefire Z3 with an Overready v5 (??) Dropin. Than my Surefire Dominator follows with 2400 Lumens. All other lights I own are more or less below 1000 Lumens. Sure it is impressive to see an Imalent MS18 beam, but I do not have any use for such a light at all.

We will see if Henry and Hogo are checking the two linked LEDs. Maybe we are lucky and one of this qualifies for a next limited LED type!??

I'd also be in for a 219B SW30 HDS. Maybe Hogo is able to explain Henry the "urgent need" for 3000K on a regular (non special metal) HDS!? :)

From the past, and also special metal runs, 3000-3500k have been quite a bit less popular than 4000-5000k by a large margin.

Once the special metal lights ship, then the remaining are sold, I would expect there to be some of the Nichia 3000k and 3500 left over which will then be offered in aluminum. You just have to wait.

Until then, we will be doing some testing on a Samsung 3k... which we expect to produce 250 lumens of high CRI. If they turn out, there won't be many offered so...

Looks like the 519A is using a similar chip size to the Cree XP-L and Samsung LH351D. So yes, more lumens, but with a wider beam.

But anyway NB30 and NB35 was sold out quite fast in the big HiCRI emitter offer. 4K Emitters are always offered, but bot ultra los K emitters. 2700 is realky warm. I would buy one it this option is available.

...Nichia 219B 2700K 9080... Even of it would be less than 200lm, I would like it.
That is a D160 LED..
it would make 160 Lumens in an HDS..

The sw35 D180, makes 180 Lumens in an HDS, and the sw45k D200 makes 200 Lumens in a HDS

iow, the Dbin spec, happens to match the output of an HDS
