Nice, I’m really curious what the inside of this looks like. I’m thinking it might make a great Xhp-70 host.

Did you get any definite info on the head diameter?

I just requested custom sizes of a few UCLp lenses from Chris at flashlightlens.com, including for the new Convoy L2 and UranusFire 818, so they are shipped and on the way. If this is plain glass, thinking it is, then a UCLp would be an awesome upgrade. He's got sizes in 73, 76, 88, and 93 now, but sounds like he can turn over a custom size in plastic (UCLp) quick. Glass is a whole # story - needs mins and time. The big UCLp's get a bit pricey, and still have to see if the 2.25 mm thickness will work out ok.

This light looks like it's made for the EFEST 4200 26650 cell - best cell on the planet right now, least I know of... I got a few more on order, planning on running 4 of them in this. Really for max throw, it comes down to the quality/design of the reflector. Some designs can kill throw, and can't be tuned, but there are also serious variations from piece to piece in reflectors, so never can tell. A UCLp should give a nice boost on throw - they always do.

Wish I could read Chinese - wonder what the X960 means, was hoping it's 96 mm head or reflector Smile. 960 doesn't seem to match up to anything else, unless it's just a sort of model #.

You can take your time to measure your unit before placing your mod kit.

X960 is the flashlight model in the center.

I say make it 4s and put a XHP35 in there with a diamond Reflector. “now thats a light” (think crocodile dundee voice)

So the X960 is 45mm head diameter and the boss1 is approximately 2.6 X960's wide. Roughly 115mm head diameter? Just did it in paint, so I wouldn't go trusting it too much. Silly

Things tend to look a bit bigger when they are closer to camera. Tongue Out

Damn it, a 4 × 26650 light, now I’m going to have to purchase it. If there’s a list, please add me to it.

True, I kinda want to recreate the picture with similar sized flashlights to see how much difference there is... Hmm, project for when I get bored.

Just fyi, it's SRK soup can style, super sized, 4 cells in parallel, but still, should be awesome runtime and maxing out the 4v capability of the emitter.

The handle is budget all the way - that slip over rubber sleeve, little weird, and the tail switch is kinda strange as well for alight like this, but who cares really - this light has just one purpose - max, and I'm thinking max throw.

Still, I'd probably drop in a Tiny25 with Bistro firmware - just because I can, and it's easy. Doing a Convoy L2 now, same way basically. Thinking of a de-domed XP-L V6 1D - got a couple in from IOS, but he's sold out of the LED's. Might have to get a couple XP-L V6 1A's from Richard. Could also go with a de-domed U4. I just have no luck with XP-G2's...

I am curious to see how are 26650 cells going to slide over those bumpy protruding contacts on a driver pcb while you screw in or out the battery tube!

I don’t see it as being a problem. there is a smooth transition from PCB to the stud and the nipples of protected cells have no square edges or sharp corners.

I'll try. Hoping to max it out for throw. Once I get it and measure the lens, I'll probably order a custom UCLp. Thinking of a de-domed XP-L, but I'm working on de-domed XP-G2's. Unfortunately, I don't have the capability to do much in a custom heat sink, but we'll see. I'd rather keep the cells 4P - easier to works thing out with a stock driver. I'm thinking this is between a COURUI D01 and TK61 in reflector diameter. Of course a lot depends on the quality/shape of the reflector to get top #'s.

Great for something this big at a decent price though.

Hi

When you have it, please share the measures of lens and reflector Wink

Many thanks

Sorry for my bad English…

<—- willing to help in the heatsink department. Feel free to give me a holler. Wink

I have 1”, 1 3/8”, 1 1/2” copper and a piece of 2 1/2” that’s 1 1/2” long in Tellurium if that helps. The big piece was for something that didn’t pan out. Wink

Edit: Also got a couple of XP-G2 S2 OD if that helps…

Be prepared for the fight as Palight has habit of gluing their lights.

I just bought one at TaoBao @ US$73. This light is very heavy! With 4 CaroNite 26650, it weight 1.464kg. Luckily it has no glue anywhere, hand removal is applicable. Compared to TK61, the reflector has the same diameter and depth, but the base seat on LED side has larger diameter. They have similar spot appearance, but due to bigger hole, larger gasket and LED sit lower, the BOSS1 has the ring shapes around the hot spot.

Stock Flashlight is around 700-800 lumens. TK61 is far brighter. May be due to the thin silver coated springs high resistant contact point. And the LED is aluminium base.

Will modify this to MT-G2 using 18×7135-350mah driver which designed for 3x xml by the brand of HONDS.

Thanks CWK, interesting news. The TK61 throw #'s are a bit all over the place, from maybe 550 kcd, 620 kcd, to as high as 740 kcd from vinh here. Hard to say what can be accomplished with this, but has many possibilities.
