Recommend me a 14500 ramping light

Hi! Is there a 14500 light running Anduril, Narsil, D4 interface or having a continuously variable output?

Preferences are

50,000 Lm without melting for 6 hours (but I’ll take what I can get)

Don’t need recharging ports or anything else. Just the brightest ramping 14500 light.

Thanks!

And for 6 straight hours!

But seriously, what’s the brightest ramping 14500 light I can get? Smile

I sometimes use my BLF X5 (identical to Astrolux S3) which is capable of emitting 1.400lm with an Enerciq Tensai TN14500HP battery. This flashlight has however no
stepless ramping but maybe with another driver from Lexel oder TA it might be feasable. Make sure you buy the right high drain battery and keep in mind that fun will last for no more than a couple of minutes with such a small battery capacity.

Maybe you should move your decimal point. Like FlashTom said before: > 1,000 lumens – you are in the Premier Ligue.
It is quite impossible to run a light wit the power of an electric heater for 6 hours on a single 14500 battery.
Unless you mean Chinese lumens Wink

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

I’m afraid even an evil-minded Chinese salesman wouldn’t be cocky enough to advertise a 14500-flashlight with more than 8.000lm. Evil
