I got palight directly from china , but they communicate in chinese. I would think its best for most to wait for gearbest restock or other reputable online sellers to get them.

If U R reading this, U R also a Flashaholic. Pfft <3

The stock boss is driven at 2,4A on high. I removed everything from driver and use it as a contact board. Then put it in it’s box for later when I have a lathe. My plan is to put in 3 convoy C8 smooth reflectors with XPL-HI leds driven with a fet driver. and on the edge between the C8 reflectors there will be 3 orange peel S2+ reflectors with XPL or XM-L2 leds driven by another fet driver. I measured the diameters. Fit every six reflector nicely without overlapping. And because the new ones not as deep as the original. I can replace the thin shelf with a realy thick aluminum plate. Ther will be two electronic switch on the side of the head to operate the throw and flood mode separately. Ughh Cool

This soumds like an interesting project Zozz. One of my favourite lights is using 3 x C8 reflectors with XML2 leds.

That's pretty poor results. I got over 700 kcd on a dedomed XPL in mine. I blew a de-domed XM-L2 U4 because of too much current. This thing is huge, and on a good de-dedomed XP-G2, it should hit over 800 kcd.

400 kcd is wayyyyy low.

I found the mod that figure comes from, he used a dedomed warmwhite XML2 T5 high CRI LED

Sure with XML2 U4-1A dedomed you get a lot more lumens and throw

Not that I know of. I've looked - not in stock mostly from the places that used to sell them. If the threads were done better, I'd recommend them, but the threads are awful, similar to $3 (small) to $12 (larger) low budget lights. Even that is generous.

This light is not worth buying unless the threads are improved. Yes, it is a pure throwr, it can have a loong runtime, but the threads are silly. They are not going to last.

It's a mini BOSS - they shrunk it, which effectively kills the advantage the BOSS1 had. With only 3 26650's and the head diameter to match, it's got to be smaller -- ahh, found it:

  says 68 mm head diam.

100mm vs 68mm is a huge shrink

There are some nice lights like the Klarus G35 with that head size and multiple cells
