Double headed flashlight reborn

Back in 2011 Klarus introduced the XT20 It’s been upgraded three times from XM-L T6 up to XM-L2 U2.

Then Shadow came out with the TC750X followed by the BL20 bike light. Then Maxtoch DX21 in 26650 a few years later. On the Shadow TC750X I put a TC350 aluminum or TC500 stainless steel 2×18350 body tube.


Different Solarforce extensions and tail caps


Battery option.


Shadow TC-750X, modified Shadow BL-20, MAXToch DX21


Backside of the three lights.


Now we have the Amutorch TC750 with 18650 and 21700 tubes, SST40 or XPL HD in 4800K or 6500K tint. A little high claiming 3500 lumens SST40 and 2860 with XPL’s.

I like the style, their never roll away. Not a practical or tactical light but a fun light. Best for walking the dog and yes they can tail stand.


The BL20’s even took the Solarforce bezels. With these it was a double barrel assault flashlight.

I’m fond of multi-head emitters, they’re always a fun (if not too practical) form factor. The Gatling-styled Fenix TK45 springs to mind.

Has there ever been one built with a thrower in one side and flood for the other? With provision to use only one or the other?

I’ve got an old unmarked clone? of the Maxtoch?? (no name)
Single 26650 cell, 2 x sw, (End cap and side of head). XM-L/2 LED’s from memory. Usual 5 way sw.

Use it most night putting garbage out and chasing Toadie’s
with a spade.

Well balanced.well made. never missed a beat in around 5yrs or more.
cost around $11/$13 AUD.

I remember they were talking about combination throw/spread at the time.
But never went anywhere that I know of.

By default, both LEDs are XML. I changed one for XPL-HI. The flashlight has a significantly longer afterglow. Both LEDs can be independently controlled at six levels. One or both of them can be lit. Power supply 1×18650, 2×18650, 4×16340 / 18350. The flashlight is great, I love it very much. Well worn in the pocket.

The left LED is XPL-HI, the right LED is XML.

What do you think of swapping that old XM-L for a domed XHP50.2 3v? Wink

Thank’s Texas.

Yep. That’s the one. Great value for money
Even at today’s price. I reckon.

I reckon the head sizes individually would be too small to take advantage of the 50-2 though.
ONE advantage though. Would be an extension tube for 2 × 26650 cells though.
It’d still look and feel balanced with that head.
