I'm going to send in an Olight Seeker 3 Pro. Love the rotary switch but just don't like the auto-lockout. Will think of a few others to send in.

Hello All!

Not too long ago I was able to do sales with deep discounts and it was fun to see things up for grabs. Nowadays, it's kind of a different world. Supplies are low, shipping has doubled and money are sacred hahaha. Sales are fun anyways though. Enjoy!


Cheers!
Vinh

What would dedomed 519A in the MC12 II look like? Seems like the factory driver would drive it at a modest ~700 lumens with good regulation, and the optic should give it decent throw of around 30kcd.

My Subforum is pretty much dead here. haha
On a related note:
The website is kind of challenging for the newer enthusiasts in that acronyms and lingo are used so much for the many services and options. Maybe if there was a glossary or more complete descriptions.

As an example, the P60 dropins title says something “As Wanted R”.
What does that mean?

On the P60, what is the metal module made of? Is it brass? Nickel coated?

Seems like everyone who use the 519A dedomes them because the tint is much more rosy after dedoming and I believe R9 and RG also goes up. Good thing is that they are extremely easy to dedome so the outcome is consistent. Once I gather the lights I want for Vinh to mod with the 519A, I will send them over and then take some measurements after I get them back.

519a are likely the best HCRI ever made to my eyes

They dedome so well! Easy to dedome, and once dedomed, they all lose roughly 1000k , and tint gets quite rosy. Dedomed 519As seem to about 90% of the output but 170% of measurable candela.

Their output seems to peak around 5-6 amps. Are there any drivers out there that have good linear regulation at around 5-6 amps per led?

7135 drivers without FET are nice linear current regulated.
5-6 A is doable.

RRT01vn is now sold out.

Should have stock more of this wonderful light.
