I have nothing to take pictures of.
I have a phone (2016 flagship with android), but she does not see it very well. I would need someone with a tripod or take the pictures while I use the torch.
I’ll try if I find someone.

I finished testing:
-SP70 is, in my opinion, about 15-20% stronger in the distance and has more lumens than the Convoy L6 new (xhp70.2 + SMO). It’s a great flashlight for this price. I mean I can see it with her. I can not say how many meters, but a convoy building I could not see it well, just the roof shone a bit, while the SP70 lightens the whole building.

Excuse my bad English.

*As a small summary:
-Convoy L6 NEW wins the Thorfire S70s (I sold Thorfire)
-SP 70 wins the Convoy. :)*

Unfortunately, it did not come in perfect condition, it still has small defects, probably it was hit (but not during transport). She had a lot of dust on it. Packaging is not ok, the Astrolux lanterns are packed more nicely Smile
I’ll be back tomorrow if I have time with pictures.

Also remember that the SP70 uses a FET driver so the batteries effect performance. High drain batteries will give the best output.

With L6 and S70S the type of battery makes very little difference.

The SP70 has some bloody modes. I have to keep pushing to go to another level, or when I stop it many times I start my turbo. I’m not happy with this. Thorphire and Convoy have much better ways.
I like the moon mode Smile

I would like to see the BLF SP70 with either Narsil or Anduril

I’m not sure what this means. I always prefer ramping mode, have you tried that one yet?

You can’t please everyone with a single UI, so they made 2 different UI in one light. Hopefully it pleases the most people. Still not perfect, though. Narsil would be great, but if they use Anduril I hope they can tweak the code for instant off.

I liked the K70 project because it was going to be a beefed up/heavy duty light with a great ergonomic form factor:

The XHP 70 produced a lot of lumens out the front.

The larger head allows for a very usable mix of flood and throw.

The 26650 battery tube just seems to fit well in my hand and gives good run times.

So let’s take these strengths to the next level:

3 x XHP 70.2 or 50.2 (like a larger C8F)

3 × 26650 battery tube, thick wall, heavy knurling, extended run times

Oversized heat sink, wide spacing between fins for better airflow/heat dissipation.

I think this would be a winner!

Yes, yes, yes and yes again!

3 × 26650 makes for a very nice, weighty “maglite” kind of feel. And with something this size you may as well then have lots of LED’s for a lot of lumens.

This would make for a great light!

Oh wow, that’s large. My L6 is big enough to serve Maglite duty, especially with the tactical/cigar grip ring left on the bottom.

I’m interested in a BLF edition of the SP70, hopefully with Anduril. After reading through some of this thread, it seems like people are having problems with flat top cells. If you order the kit does it come with flat tops? Sounds like it needs button tops.

Since batteries touch end to end you have to make sure your cells can touch. Some flat top work and some don’t. The batteries packaged with the SP70 do touch. Their high drain cells have button tops added. Their normal cells have tall flat tops.
