If you had to choose one for dropping in a Zoomie host, mainly for great flooding up to 50 yds out. Xhp70, 50, L2, Triple L Hi, or MT-G2. Or other. I will be powering it with a Keeppower 6000mAh.
Thanks

You could also choose 4x 3535s for as long as your zoomie uses ∅20mm MCPCB. Related information: Frankenquads using 20mm 2x2 3535 MCPCBs

Available in all variants: 4S1P, 2S2P & 1S4P.

Any time an MT-G2 is an option it’s always the option!

I would also consider Nichia 319A (hexagonal light emitting surface, small 3.5mm×3.5mm footprint) or Samsung LH351D (again 3.5mm×3.5mm). LH351D has very large surface under the dome, so it should look somewhat roundish, when focused.

Here is what an LH351D looks like behind the Cometa aspheric optic (left is LH351D, right is sliced SST20) :

Looks like I may be leaning toward the MT-G2, since I have a number of XHP50’s.

So I just ordered the MT-G2 and Xhp50’s, and more.

As a little blaster the MT-G2 will go into my Convoy M2 with a 17mm driver and two Keeppower 18350’s.

Another MT-G2 will go into a Zoomie. Link: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Powerful-Tactical-LED-Flashlight-T6-Led-...

It’s like the love for the MT-G2 has only grown fonder.

The low mode should be lower.

Thoughts on a MT-G2 in the Zoomie I pictured? Or would another LED be better?

Thanks for all the input too!!

Does that look like some sort of Warsun? 28mm head travel path…  I wonder how good is the emitter shelf/cooling inside of that aluminium can.

I may try Kaidomain's “fishing flashlight host” some day, huge space for driver (∅23mm) and led board (∅26mm). Thumbs Up

All easy fixes. It will make an ideal zoomie.

So in a large diameter Zoomie would a Xhp70.2 flood better than a MT-G2?

I built a zoomie with a MT-G2 for a friend a few years ago. It turned out rather nice: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/38320

I picked up that “DIY Fishing Flashlighht Host 26650” from Kaidomain. I got it in yesterday, put a MT-G2 and H1-A 20mm driver with a 20mm to 22mm brass ring adapter. A little solder added to the outer portion of the ring to make the 22mm ring fit tight in the 23mm driver hole. I will pick up a rubber washer gasket/ring to make the lens stay tight and not rattle.
But other than that it’s a great feeling light and bright. It does not zoom quick like most zoomies. The zoom is you turning it on threads. It’s a tad quirky to figure out at first, I will leave it at a midway zoom/flood. But it’s a solid feeling light. It’s much brighter than a similar Xhp-50 Zoomie I modded up.

It warms up a tad in seconds and stays that temp. I haven’t yet felt it get overly hot. Solid pill, plastic lens.
