    Lightbulb Interest in an UCL lens for the Dereelight DBS?

    I recently ask flashlightlens.com if there are plans to offer a UCL Lens for the Dereelight DBS.

    I got this answer:
    "Jan,
    At this point, not yet. The more requests I get though for a lens though, the close it will get to being produced. If you can get the support of a bunch of others (on CPF or whatever), I’ll seriously consider it.
    Chris"

    Final Update:
    Success - we've done it



    To Clarify:
    This is not a sale Thread! to say it in the words of gchronis:
    "
    the whole point of this thread is to tell the manufacturer that people are interested"

    The original DBS Lens is 43,3 mm - you have bought the 41,7 mm right?
    I have read there is too much space and you need another 0-ring...

    The goal of this interest list is to get an perfect fitting lens

    They call it similar, but it is not the UCL lens.

    Yes, it is not UCL. UCL has greater performance. A Must update for DBS V1 that has a simple glass lens.

    I checked again guys, yes, you are right, it is the 41,7mm lens.It works well for me though,I have it over 6 months without any problems.
    But there is a space of about 1,5mm.

    A better transmission performance...
    according to flashlightlens.com:
    "Transmission rates are about 99%."

    And at least 10% higher lux readings from stock lens of DBS V1 and unknown percentage for DBS V2&V3.

    I'd buy one. I got a warranty replacement for the finger printed lens issue, but it still isn't perfect...

    I just tested my DBS v2 3SD Q5
    With the lens in place, I got a representative illuminance at 1 m of 30700 lux.
    Without the lens the corresponding number was 35600 lux.
    This means that by removing the lens, the illuminance in the hot spot increased by 16%.
    So if you can get me a lens with 99% transmission rate, I am in!

    Best regards from
    Jens

    Would this UCL be the same thickness as the current DBS lens? I'd be in for two, or three (maybe get one for my Dad's DBS v1 I got him).

    One DBS for me.

    I also tried the closest flashlightlens (The one for the Tiablo) and it didn't work at all with the o-ring.

    I'd also consider the C2H lens. The original coating became cloudy and easily wiped off, now it's just glass.

    C2H lens isn't a bad idea at all - what is the diameter of the original lens?

    Great deal considering most would pay the $35.00 + for the latest pill and gain only 10% if their lucky.
