I asked about using 219C and was told they wanted to but is still too hard to get in larger amounts so they settled for 219B.  I wish the XP-G3 came in a good High CRI tint. Output with them is crazy.

Is this a safe place to purchase/preorder the MK34 or should I wait for another choice? :-\

i
I don't know for sure. Never used them. I would wait until it is released then buy from Amazon. Manker ships from there for USA buyers. If you have Prime, like I do, it's a no brainier with free 2day shipping and easy return policy. Will be the same price.

I would also wait until I get my sample(s) and report on e light fully. I don't expect any disappointment with this little monster but I've had issues with my U21 I'm trying to figure out even though I seem to be the only one.

Keep us posted!
Should you approve, going to buy.
Wish 219C were used.
I wish 219C were used as well.  :(

The least they could have done was give us an XP-G3 option with 5000K.

130$ are still a lot ...

Let's take the xp-g3 version . Leds Cost ~25$ or even less ...
Where are the other 100$ ?

This light could be easily in the 80-100$ range , but.... Manker .

LOL!  It definitely bears a resemblance to the Norelco shavers but much, much cooler! I cannot wait to get this little monster in my hands.

I've never been crazy about electric shavers, personally.  I prefer just a nice blade, and good ol' shaving cream.

The light is beautiful, though :-).  12 wondrous Nichia 219Bs would be absolutely killer!
