Looks freaking interesting. I want a pocketable super thrower. But I hope this has 500+ lumens.

Very cool but I expected much more throw for a laser. That’s only about 200 kcd.

The first LED Flashlights only had MagLites and other Halogen-driven lights as a competitor, not 10k Lumen+ flooders or throwers like the BLF GT

this is the discussion thread gentlemen! Wink 

groupbuy will start in the appropriate place in a few days (after the holidays in China)

 

if I understood them correctly the plan is to sell via amazon in North America and Europe 

but the groupbuy will be not limited Wink

So are these things available yet? The concept is really intriguing and I like the host they used here.

As to the tech itself, there is precious little on it currently. I’m curious if an LEP module can be driven the same as an LED or if it has specific requirements that are different.

Interested depending on price. I don’t mind 180k cd as long as the price is right.

I’ll EDC it just for fun. Smile

Ugh……too much. The Maxtoch L2K is doing 500 lumens, a bit below 1 Mcd and 299 usd.

Not exactly EDC though, but still pocketable.

If i remember correctly (too far ago!) there were already HIDs conversions, H3 bulbs. Amondotech 3152 or something, though at 35W only and just about 700k cd and shortly after that 55W HID ballasts arrived. Halogen throwers like the Thor Colossus Thor X ain’t too shabby then also. esp if overdriven, if i am not wrong some outthrow the HIDs if done properly.

It’s all about the surface luminosity and reflector size, after that part would be to ensure that big ass reflector doesn’t warp too much and you could add shims for fine tuning the focusing for the best result etc. Smile

Could even be comfortably before year 2000 for those warm white lights, even before the CPF era, and possibly even before the WWW internets era. Hat

I have already excluded those carbon arcs and tank short-arcs and portable short arcs, which have been around for way before year 2000, which cost $$$ anyway so not fair to compare them.

PS. No intention to compare with LED stuff like BLF GT or some LED super throwing mods. Just some “history”.

That is exactly the early adopter problem.
If you are willing and Able to financially support this (and any really any emerging technology) then God bless you.
But for the rest of us,
We are well served to wait for the bugs/cost to get worked out/lowered to where it makes sense to buy these things.

I’ve been on the selling end of this with Sony Betamax vcr’s and people willingly spent $800+ for something that was outdated and the cost cut in half or more within 9 months.
But it was worth it to them at the time so it is all relevant.
Peace Out.

It says that the emitter power is 0.22 – 0.25W in High mode, does that mean you can achieve 180kcd at just 0.25W?

If so, why the runtime on high mode is only 1 hour 25 minutes?

The output power of a laser is much lower than the input power V * A
