Thread: Sofirn C01 for 2020

    Default Sofirn C01 for 2020

    Since there is a new version of the wildy popular C01 coming out in a non potted format this may be a good place to talk about it instead of the potted version thread.
    What yall think?

    Are you referring to the C01S model?

    Ah, good question.

    No, there is another E01 type of C01 starting to ship according to the last few posts in the C01 potted thread.

    Three on the way; C01R SST-20 Deep Red, C01 3400k ("Sofia" replaces earlier used Yuji) and the C01S SST-20 4000k NW

    All just shipped from the Sofirn Store in the land of C19

    My first order, last year, shipped thru Ali for C01 Yuji, emitter arrived DOA

    Hopefully at least one out of this order functions 🙏🤞🤙

    Should be easy to pot yourself?

    Does anyone here have any experience with the Sophia LEDs these use?

    Not even a dozen posts in and we're already talking about lights that are not the C01.

    I have dozens of’em from 2300K up to 6000K. All i can say they are amazing! Therefore i ordered 10xC01’s to swap them all. It will be fun for sure.
    I think Sophia is the only one having 3mm LED’s in 90CRI.

    Unless I am missing something, the new Sofirn C01 is Sophia, and I hear she's a hot one

    Although I ordered one in each color (plus a deep red), I have no idea about the “Sophia” emitter...what have I missed here?
    I only fear that if something happens to me, my wife will sell all my stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    I have also ordered a few of these
    New C01 / Sophia lights from Sofirn's website.

    Finally, after a WEEK, it now shows
    that my order has SHIPPED !



    Hope to get 'em by Christmas

    Yes, the CRI metrics are basically equal to a Yuji, and the tint is almost as good, but the Sophia is slightly more efficient, and able to be overdriven harder. I've stress tested both a Yuji and a couple samples of the Sophia. CRI was measured by djozz.

    Overall, I think it's a great LED, and for $4, this should be a stellar value on a light.

    To clarify things in case anyone is confused, the C01 family consists of 3 models, but there have been multiple editions of each.

    Sophia 5mm 3400K, 95 CRI 1 ~5 lumens Not Potted, 5 body colors
    C01 (2020 Edition, red)
    Unknown 5mm deep red (670nm) 1 Unknown Not Potted, red body

    This is great, however, the title of the thread clearly states 2020, so I'm scratching my head about the prior posts concerning all the older and mostly unavailable versions.

    Someone brand new coming into this is surely confused by the time he has gotten to this post.

    It's probably just me, again. May be better just to changed the title of the thread to "C01 - All Variations" or something like that, since we can't get a full page into this, with them all being discussed in this thread.

    I'd love a 4000ish Kelvin C01 if Sophia make one.

    Thanks Everyone for their input on the Sophia LED.

    I think Post #16 spells out what is and what was very well. The reason I started this thread was because of all the chatting going on about the 2020 version in the 2018 thread that actually began due to all the chatting about a C01 in the E01 thread.
    Now, to my knowledge nobody has received their C01 sophia so of course the discussion is about the what if's and what was. At least for now. Once the pony express has delivered these new versions to a few folks perhaps the focus of conversation will be defined. I mean at least the discussion at this point is largely about a C01, regardless of which version. Some threads would be discussing politics or corn flakes cereal by now.

    Thank you, iamlucky13, for setting out the complete picture in post 16. Until yesterday, I was unaware that the C01 has been brought back with a new emitter. The original C01 with Yuji is a favorite of mine for predawn use about the house, and I look forward to the Sophia version now. I ordered some from Sofirn yesterday and got the shipping notification today.

    BTW --

    Sofirn's website page lists the LED
    used in Red C01 (3-level) as:

    " Original CREE SST2-DR 660nm "

    that is a 3 mode C01R with 660nm, on row 7 in post 16

    the 1 mode C01 Red has a 5mm LED that is 670nm, it is on row 3 in post 16

    There is a 4500K version. I don't know if it is Sophia, but the same person (rngwn) sells them in packs of 50 on another forum.

    Spectrometer measurements for CRI showed Ra = 98, and R9 = 97, with Duv = -0.001 for a single sample.

    In other words, top tier light quality, so if you like that color temperature and are comfortable soldering, they would be a great option to mod a C01 with.

    Sophia has a 4500K, that sounds pretty good to me, but unfortunately I'm no modder. Maybe if this run goes well, we can convince Sofirn to do a run of it.

    you could also pay a modder to build your dream light
    consider picking up a couple C01 now, to keep your options open down the line
    modding a 5mm LED on a not potted driver, is probably something you could learn, if you wanted to.

    the real issue will be finding a source for the LED you want. Usually they come in a bag of at least 50 or in the case of Yuji, 1000 LEDs at a time.

    anyway
    it seems there will not be another run of C01 w 5mm LED after this.

    The price of $3.99 (free shipping on orders above $21) is the best I can strive for you guys.

    Some of you may hate the $2.99 shipping fee, I hate it too, but it can NOT even cover the real cost if you buy only one.

    It's the best I can offer.
    However, that does not rule out other options, such as the presently available 2 mode C01S with 4000k High CRI.

    Im expecting there will be another model, with 3 modes, as presently used in the C01R w 660nm, but with a not Red LED.

    while were dreaming...
    I wish Sofirn would make some Copper and Titanium versions of the C01 Host
