I've been eyeing the Eagletac d25a 2015 nichia 219 for awhile now. However I'm a bit worried about the blue corona that many a talking about.
Is there any other good Nichia 219 options out there that I should look into?
Well it causes the tint to become cooler, which kind of defeats the purpose of a nichia..
I recently got the Atom AO special version that has a Nichia emitter and though it is a Mule it is a really nice little EDC light!My D25A and my D25C's all step down, but I only use Lithium rechargeables, never eneloop's. I do use the eneloop pro's in a few other lights but I guess I swap out the batteries before they ever get low enough to go dark...
Have you considered looking for one of the older Four Seven's light with a Nichia 219b like the Ti Preon II or the Mini(Cr123 or AA) with the NW led? I know they are not made anymore but I bought most of mine used from CPF for pretty reasonable prices...
How about the BLF 348? It's very inexpensive. I have 2 and the tint though is slightly different. One is a bit rosy and one is a bit green when comparing side by side. Otherwise I love these as they aren't too warm for my taste.
I'm actually considering buying a few more in case these break or I lose them since they're so cheap.
After what happened to me this morning, I won't be using the D25 or the L11c as my EDC
This morning I was out in my garage with my black aluminum AAA Lumintop on high (electric lights out, of course) and poof...I found myself in total darkness with no warning.
