Thanks for posting! I’ve been trying to decide between these two leds or a dedomed 219c for my C8.

How did you electrically insulate the Black Flat from the flashlight body? Also, have you measured the candela of these two?

I used a thin layer of Arctic Alumina thermal adhesive between the mcpcb and the shelf. I haven’t had a chance to measure them yet. I was a little impressed with the intensity of the Black Flat even though it’s cool BLUE, lol.

Nice pics. What current are you running the Torch XPE2 at and what do you think of it in the Convoy?

I’ve got a standard qlite @3.04a with guppydrv pushing the XP-E2 and a fet+1 pushing the black flat.

I have a qlite @3.04a pushing the XP-E2. I don’t really like it in the C8, I really don’t think you should use anything smaller that a XP-G2 in it because the beam is not very useful at all.

Nice beamshots djburkes.

I had forgotten about the Osram Oslon Black Flat LED. Here’s the test that djozz did on it last year: Three Oslons tested: 1) latest gen. Oslon Black Flat 2) SSL80 4000K 92CRI latest gen. 3) SSL80 4500K 96CRI 1 gen. before latest.

I hope you don’t mind me adding the link djburkes.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

Hi djburkes

What was the kcds you got on the Oslon black? Is the Oslon black doing better than the new production XP-G2 S4s?
