Just measured the Convoy L6 head and reflector.

L6 head at the bezel: 73 mm (75 mm at thickest point, lower down)

L6 reflector: 63.0 mm I.D., 67.5 mm O.D., 48.5 mm depth

 

As posted in the OP, the MT07 has a 72 mm I.D. and 68 mm depth, so with the extra 9 mm of I.D. width, the MT07 should definitely out throw an L6 with everything else being equal (LED/amps). The extra 20 mm of depth should mean the spill on the MT07 should be narrower by quite a bit, so that should make the spill area brighter, maybe a slight bump in throw, maybe... Good comparative beam shots should make it clear, but we'll have to wait on that - hopefully those great garden beamshots done in Germany will soon include the MT07.

Thread here on bluzie's garden - he's got posts with lots of beamshots: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/43644

Seeing the first beam shots of the XHP 70 Thrower and the MINI Triple XHP70,  I think I will go for the xhp 70. [for now]

Tom, your light should almost be there, right? Mine is a few days behind.

The low mode should be lower.

11/02: Actually just pm'ed HaikeLite this morn - haven't got a DHL tracking #, but think they sent it to the shipper for DHL shipping on Monday or so.

11/04: Edit/Update: DHL says my MT07 just arrived in the US, Ohio, so should be on schedule for Monday.

11/07: Edit/Update: It's delivered @home smile, but of course I'm not there frown. Hopefully will still be there when I get home after work laughing.

Got mine today too! Flat top cells it seems… that was probably discussed earlier, but I don’t have any. Looks like I need to place an order!

I'm liking what I'm seeing so far wink:

Nice square threads and double up O-rings:

How do you think it’d compare against a stock BTU Shocker?

The low mode should be lower.

Beats the old Shocker all-around, little in stock throw, a lot in stock lumens, lighter more compact package, better UI with the dual side switches, better driver. Wish I had a Shocker to show comparison shots with.

Great, that means I’ll probably actually use this unlike my Shocker that’s only been used for a few minutes. Those side buttons would have been enough to make it worth using, but it’s awesome that it’s better in several other ways too.

The low mode should be lower.

thanks for the quick pics. Is it as front heavy as it looks? I hope its evenly distributed.
the switch looks very tall, is it spongy at all? is there a loud click when you press the switches?
very much looking forward to your numbers?

Feels to be perfectly balanced at the tripod mount, even with the switches. It's a beast, no light weight for sure - 998g w/batteries, while the Shocker was just over 1200g w/batteries. It kind of sort of feels top heavy, dunno if it's an illusion, but you have to hold it around the fin area - holding the battery tube and it will be top heavy. Problem is where's the heat - well, it's right there around the switch at the worse spot, and that's where you need to hold it. But it took 6 mins on turbo for it to heat up well, to about 110F surface temp (IR meter).

Just posted a review of the MT07 Buffalo here: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/50502

Just received the light today, saw it initially this evening, so I tried to pack in as much as I could in the limited time. Figure there are many waiting for further information and diagnosis. I'll try to answer as many questions as I can in the review thread.

Hello Haikelite, I have a question for you.

Gold is often used for coating springs and parts for electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance. You chose silver instead. Why? Is it pure silver or some silver alloy, as pure silver is susceptible to oxidisation… Thanks!

For what it’s worth, the P binned XHP-70 at over 11A makes 7400 lumens in an L6. (over 7500 lumens with no lens in the way) This from a pair of Basen 4500mAh cells.

5000 lumens is so last month…

Sorry for OT but there is a “P” binned XHP-70 ? Can you point me to a place where to get these? How much more powerful is that one compared to the N2 or N4 bins ?!?

This ain't the lumens monster - check out the MT03, but of course can't compete with your triple XHP70 Shocker, but the Shocker II could give it a run. This light does about 6A-7A, as I measured last night - not bad for stock.

You might actually get a little more amps out of a pair of LittaKola 5000's, least the older good ones. In my modded L6 (triple channel w/SIR800DP FET), I got little more amps on the LK's then the BASEN's (10.45A vs. 11.8A), even with the long 20 AWG LED wires I got in there now.

Nice out-of-stock listing on MtnE. Dunno where else. I bought only one when he had them.

I'll try this evening- don't have a regular place to use for outdoors. There's a park near by, but officially closed at dark and it's on a major road.

I'll try some white wall shots as well. I'll post in my review OP --> Review: The new HaikeLite MT07 - Buffalo XHP70 thrower

 

Ohh - Richard had a few more XHP70 P2 1C LED's posted - when I got the in-stock notification, there were 3 left - I grabbed two. Still one listed right now.

Only Tom and I have this so far, so it’s up to him or Haikelight.

The low mode should be lower.

Sorry, didn't get to it last night - worked on the runtime graph and got it scaled properly and added temperature readings.

You’re doing fine. It would have been fine if it took you waited a couple of weeks to pay your review in its entirety. What you’re doing is above and beyond.

The low mode should be lower.

Yea, wanted to get it out quick, figuring there were a lot of waiting. I believe mhanlen will be doing a review on it as well, or maybe that's on the MT03 flooder - the flooder would be more up his alley since he's done the Meteor and Olight X7 Marauder.
