If it indeed had active cooling the head wouldn’t need to be that big. And would have holes/vents.

My God, that head with those colling fins Shocked

It seems very close to TR-J20 thermal dissipation…… So, it can handle 10~15k lumens continuous? LOL

I think they would need to decide that at the very beginning of the project, not this far along. You have to design air inlets and outlets to achieve airflow across special sized and shaped heatsinks.

With the current design, about all they could do is strap a little fan on the side of the head and have a special plug for it. That’s not going to be very efficient, though.

They could boost efficiency by enclosing the fins on each side of the fan so all its air is forced out the opposite side. It would not look pretty, though.

Didn’t we have a picture of the cutaway design? I thought we did.

EDIT: I just realized this is the interest list. There is a different thread about the design.

My Convoy L6 thread with XHP70.2, Texas Avenger FET driver, Narsil v1.2 ramping firmware (old), lighted side switch and cut down SMO reflector. Lots of amp draws on stock driver as well. 

My Supfire L5-S thread with XHP70, Texas Avenger FET driver, NarsilM v1.0 ramping firmware and lighted side switch. My mini L6!

the GT development was noticed by the other manufacturers as well..   Wink

 

i was told they planned to stay quiet until the gt groupbuy is finished because they do not want to interfere.

someone did not. Sad

I can’t believe the number of times people on the blf recently are accusing folks of being racist. I don’t get it. An innocent typo of Chinese new year by m4dm4x and instantly accusations of racism is leveled. I have seen similar comments in 4 threads recently. There is plenty of racism to find in our world today, there is no need to concoct a reason to be offended here.

How is it gonna kill the GT?

The GT kills the TN42 due to the large size difference.

This new light looks the same size as the GT. Maybe it will be “equal” to the GT as far as distance is concerned?

If it has a 130mm reflector it will indeed throw further given equal LED output, just the nature of the beast.

That said I agree that “kill” is a bit hopeful at best.

The real question is will it have the same quality driver and firmware as the GT along with the build quality?

Ah, you think the reflector is 130mm. I was thinking the GT has a 135mm head diameter, so they are about the same.

Why are we thinking the reflector is 130mm?

I have no idea, that is what was posted above, not sure why they would say 130mm if it was not the reflector since that would be smaller like you said.

Appears to be a “M” on the button. Perhaps Matmenco is up to something

I doubt there would be a visible difference in throw between a 130mm and 118mm GT reflector.

Different/better led – more output… more throw…? Just a question…

Better LED is relative.

Toss a Flat black in the GT and it should do around 2Mcd.

Or toss an XHP70.2 and it does ~8000 lumens with ~1200m of throw.

The only real option that will net you gains in both throw and lumens is the sst-90 or whatever it is. BUT that LED costs around $150 for the LED alone. So gonna guess they are not using that lol.

That’s what i’ve been thinking about. 4*18650 will be always enough for a XHP35 Hi.

I think 8 cells are kind of waste.
