congratulations on your selection

could you share a photo of the lights Turned ON please.. (Proof of Light.. lol)
Sure, here’s a photo with the lights on, same order as before. Not sure if I’m imagining it or not but I find the latest NB45 better than my previous NB45. Seems just slightly warmer, maybe less blue? Too soon to confirm though.

Left to right: HiCRI XPG Clicky (3700k) 120 lumens, NB45 Clicky, SS40 Panda Rotary, NB45 Rotary, NB40 Rotary.

thanks for the photo, yes, the 219b 4500k sw45k, vary by Dbin, and even within the same bin, D220 is less pink than D200.. here are some examples of different sw45k bins:

@neco - How is the Nichia beam from these new reflectors in terms of artifacts, rings, and tint shift?
I’m not much of a white wall hunter so not sure about artifacts, rings etc. Here are a couple of photos from the SS40 and the latest reflector on the bottom. In use it seems the latest reflector is more useable of the two.

Flashlights are actually going out the door? It might be time for me to actually place an order again!

(Edit: I guess not, 18650 rotaries still out of stock)

I sent an email about 2 weeks ago to Hds and to Henry. Never got a reply when asking about 18650 rotaries.

My guess is the 18650 tubes are not assembled yet. Also the 18350 and 18500 tubes are not assembled yet, or at least not all tubes are finished in assembling.

I guess at first the backorders are been processed and than in a few weeks everything went back to normal.

I’m still waiting on 2 preorders from last year, so they aren’t quite caught up yet.

I think they received the parts and preorders are going out the door from last year. They said they hoped all preorders would be out by the end of April, but it appears that didn’t quite work out. Hoping soon, it’s been a long wait! Orders placed now might make it out in the 10 week lead time posted, but really nobody knows.

Can anyone recommend a reputable place for selling my rotary? Unfortunately I no longer have the need for the one I’d ordered but I do not have Facebook or an upgraded account here to post on. Any suggestions? TIA.
