And now you want to add another 4000mAh to this light? If you make it any bigger you’re also going to need a surplus MG42 tripod to mount this thing on. Blum 3

Do you have a Trustfire X6? That comes with a sling. Or perhaps go tactical with a Magpul single-point or some other such nonsense :bigsmile:

Man, the more I think about what you’ve done, the more I’m thinking of doing soemthing similar to the J18 – taskled hyperboost driver, 7 XM-L2 U2’s on copper, etc. It would be a mini version of yours but thinking I could exceed 6,000 lumens with it for sure, maybe hit 7,000, a whole lot cheaper – $45 host (WallBuys), ~$45 driver, about $35 in LED/stars using IOS’s XM-L2 U2 1A or 1C’s on Noctigons (at qty 10, they are $5 each!). Think that’s about half your cost. The taskled driver seems vastly superior to anything else out there – just don’t understand it all yet – not much info.

thats what im talking about, while your at it, make me one as well! LOL.
but wait a second, its not just about hitting that mark, but once your there, i dont think the j18 can handle all that heat right? itll just be like my 9xml ak47 @6000 lumens where your only able to use it for about a minute or two max each time.
for the j18, itll probably be worst.

why dont we do it real big, and get the 15xml and try and hit 12, 000 lumens!? LOL
i found it for $85 shipped.
you down!? LOL

Been considering the heat mgt - easiest thing may be a big custom heat sink plug for the top of the pill, but some logistics issues there - can't get it in because of the smaller opening. Hhhmm - maybe replace the pill top with a big copper heat sink, or, cut the head off through the pill, add an insert, copper heat sink, and more massive alum cooling fins in the new section. This would increase overall length the pill area/flashlight size. Sounds like a project for MrsDNF, not me for sure...

The HBFlex driver sounds like the best -powerful mode setup, up to 3A per LED. I think 6,000-6,200 lumens total would be about the max. Hard to imagine getting 900 per LED at 3A, but not sure.

I reckon you’d have to do me a plan in the dirt with a stick for this mod. Blum 3
