BLF D80 LT and a few Longer Tubes also for Sale !Another Price Reduction!

This could be the last chance for a BLF D80. But this time with a slightly longer Tube.
I asked LuckySun for a BLF D80 (the only one you can buy at the moment is the LuckySun D80) and after a few mails i found out they still have a few BLF D80 Heads, but without the original tube and tail. Also a few people (inkluding me) wanted to buy the Groupbuy LongTube for the BLF D80, but they do not have them anymore.
So the idea come up to pair the Good BLF D80 Head with the LuckySun Tube and Tail. Now let me give you some measurements:
Original BLF D80 Tube 75.4mm , Longer Groupbuy LongTube 78.4mm, LuckySun D80 Tube 77.8mm.
So now we have only a small amount of Spezial BLF D80 LT. They tested 69mm Protected Batteries and they are working fine.

There are only a few lights available:

6pcs in WW
9pcs in NW
22pcs in CW
and 25 Longer LuckySun Tubes

Price is 20,54$ (inkl. shipping) for the light and 4,74$ inkl. shipping for the single Tube

My arrived a few days ago in Germany. But because it is still not here i fear its another package that i have to grap from customs by myself Sad
Not hours away but with waiting in line, paperwork . . . driving back it cost me easy 2h+.
To much trouble in the last few month. And half of the time they are wrong (and i get my stuff anyway).
I will wait and if i am right it will take easy another week untill the custom papers arrive.

My D80 passed customs and arrived today. Now i have to wait for the modding parts (driver, UV led, ZWB2 filter. . . ).
Had forgotten how easy it is to mod this light . Nice driver retaining ring, same at the tailcap pcb and everything is easy to reach.
I think i have to order at least one more for future projects! There are some nice boost drivers available. XHP-35/50 in this host. Or the ney MZ led with led4powers driver.

Which boost driver did you use? I’m also after one to use with an e switch / xhp 50 with 1 cell, any suggestions?

For now i do not need a boost driver for this lights. The UV led is a 3V led and the second D80 will be mated with the new Luxeon MZ led with fet and NTC on the ledboard + LD-B4 driver.
But if i build one with boost driver i would try to get a GXB172 http://budgetlightforum.com/node/59137. I think Lexel is also working on a Boost driver.

Where do you buy the GXB172 boost driver? The only boost driver I found for sale is the MTN one.

I checked the GXB172 thread. And you are right. You can not buy the complete driver. You can only buy the PCB and (the parts list is available) must solder the parts yourself. But as far as i know is Lexel also working on a very similar driver. Do not know how far he is but last i heard was, that its working and prototypes are made. So if you need one now i would ask Lexel. Or if you can solder make your own GXB172.

I may have to pick up one of these, the D80 was ugly to me in the beginning but the beam profile is much to my liking and the build of it grew on me once I had them in hand. The only one I have left now is an XHP-70 conversion. Smile Need to remedy that situation… Thanks for reminding me Docc…. Wink

Edit: Ordered. Smile

If does the BLF D80 come with the 78.4mm tube or the 77.8mm, and does it make a difference?

Are the head and tube different colours?

Head and tube have same color!
The tube they send the BLF D80 LT with, is 77,8mm and will fit unprotected and protected batteries like the 78,4mm tube. They produced the 78,4mm tube only for a groupbuy here on BLF to give people a option to change their original BLF D80 tube (75,4mm do not fit protected cells).
So this is a special sale. You get a BLF D80 LT (longer Tube).
And if someone already have a old BLF D80 (with short tube) he can buy the longer tube to fit protected cells in his light.

I just received my D80 with the extension tube and opened the extremely plasticky smelling packaging. I like the looks of the light, especially the fins on the head. I was hoping it would weigh more for better heatsinking but I guess the cooling from the well done fins will help. The quality overall looks great.

Have you seen the beam profile yet? The D80 has a large hot spot that is very well defined, a unique combination not found often. Semi stage lighting in appearance. I wasn’t fond of the styling to begin with but the beam profile won me over very quickly. Wink

The hotspot is a very well defined circle with some corona and very dim spill. Kind of looks like a Emisar D1. I picked the 3000k version which is way too yellow. I don’t like it. I will probably replace it with a 3000k SST-20-W 90CRI or a 4xE21A but worried about donut hole.

I also don’t like the UI that much. It goes from Hi to Low instead of Low to Hi. It does have mode memory but I rather it go from Low to Hi without memory.

Well, yeah, they bonked the UI, but the beam is sure nice! lol

I have my BLF D80 sitting pretty with an MT-G2, that’s the only one I have left from back then. The one I ordered recently is in the wind somewhere.

Somewhere I have a bag full of drivers removed from D80’s… 12-15 of em if I recall correctly.

Edit: I see 10, 5 clearly the brass button Lucky Sun D80 drivers but I’ve robbed the others of the little 3 legged MOSFETs and other parts, button included, and tossed em I guess. Too much stuff here to remember where all the bits are…

Built more than 50 Eagle Eye X6’s. Give em away, here and there, sell one or two, down to the one D80 although I have a dozen or more X6’s here.

Oh, to help clarify, I’ve been on the group buy teams and tested prototype lights more than a few times. Wink

Got the D80’s big brother, the F3X , a triple.. built it up with a copper pill and re-worked the extension tube to be the main tube, like it a lot in it’s present configuration. Smile

I like the challenge of building a light in as many different ways as seems reasonable. Big Smile

Like, I have 14 X6’s, all made differently from an Oslon Black Flat to triple XHP-50.2’s, XHP-70.2 to SBT-70. It’s fun to see what can be done. Wink

Like the X6, the D80 is a nice platform for building lights…

Now, this D80 that’s en-route… seems like a likely candidate for an LED4POWER constant current driver set up for around 9A to an SST-40 that’s sliced and diced. 2400 or so lumens, tight defined hot spot, what’s not to like?

Considering this is a BLF light, I’m surprised forum members approved of such a poorly designed UI. I guess this still makes for a good host if you swap the driver.

I actually don’t remember, seems like we didn’t approve, but that doesn’t mean Lucky Sun wasn’t stuck with a bunch of drivers…

Not so very long ago we had no say in what the UI was like. Members here changed all that, for which the noobs can be thankful. Bad UI’s and blinkies is what caused me to learn to build drivers. Once you know how to do that, you welcome a bad UI. Wink

The group buy started in January of 2015, by September we had samples and were giving the greenlight… 711 members here were on the list with the H-L set-up well known. Price was around $20. I was on the team, my protected cells fit, several other testers also had protected cells that fit in the shorter tube. I don’t use protected cells myself so the shorter tube wasn’t an issue to me then, nor is it now.

I see. At least there’s no blinky modes I guess. I might just replace the driver. I actually really like the host design. Thanks for the info.

IIRC, kronological was in the ‘throwers should start on high’ camp and requested the UI that way. Not my preference but a reasonable UI, especially compared to the original UI; Six modes: Mid2-Mid1-Low-Strobe-High-SOS Sick
Still for sale there.
