Special LED Selection for Pre-ordered Metal Flashlights

We had not finalized the LED selection by the time we started the pre-orders for both the Beryllium Copper Rotary flashlights and the Stainless Steel Rotary flashlights. We are close to finalizing the available LEDs. The Nichia LEDs have been offered in the past. The two Samsung LEDs passed preliminary qualification and we are now running a volume test we hope to be completed by mid July. The numbers below are the pessimistic view for the Samsung LEDs and the final numbers may change. However, we are confident that the Samsung LEDs will pass the final qualifications.

NOTE: the LEDs listed below are ONLY being offered for the special metal flashlights - they are NOT available for the standard aluminum body flashlights.

These are the additional LEDs we are expecting to offer - in addition to the LEDs currently offered on the Custom page:

  • Nichia 219B, NB30 (180 lumens, 3000°K, 96 CRI)
  • Nichia 219B, NB35 (200 lumens, 3500°K, 96 CRI)
  • Nichia 219B, NB40 (200 lumens, 4000°K, 96 CRI)
  • Nichia 219B, NB45 (200 lumens, 4500°K, 96 CRI)
  • Samsung, SDR50 (200 lumens, 5000°K, 92 CRI) - pending
  • Samsung, SDW57 (200 lumens, 5700°K, 92 CRI) - pending

There is a limited number of each LED. The priority will be based on your position in the pre-order list. Earlier orders get choice over later orders. We will contact each person on the pre-order list in sequence and let them choose from the remaining LED selection. Based on historical distribution, the vast majority of people will be able to receive their desired LED.

Any remaining LEDs will be held for the final sale(s) of the specialty metal flashlights.
