uh ,it’s hard to find an open land without lights here.

You could light from one of those high buildings and light to another, as long as you use fixed camera exposure settings I see no problems in doing so with the light not white out at too high exposure
Adding the distance from google maps for example

Unlikely, as the XHP35 is only available in a 12V configuration, which would require the use of a boost driver. The XHP50 and XHP70 are also available in 6V configurations, which is what Simon is using here. Powering a 6V emitter with two cells in series is relatively straightforward. Developing a 12V boost driver would be considerably more difficult.

You can give 2000mA to the XHP35 and it will good. Maybe measure heat and add a timed 5 minute stepdown on turbo.

Simon, is there any chance to get the Convoy L6 tail cap / tail part as spare part?

It would be great to use it for high current purposes on other flashlights.

I plan to make a considerable purchase order on your webshop and this would be the icing of the cake. Love

Thank you.

If there is an XHP35 model coming I will definately be buying one of those. Hopefully there will be a 3500/4000K version. That would be awesome.

I think, this set could be good for a premium XHP35 HI L2 variant:

5700K 90CRI – Pure white:
XHP35A-H0-0000-0D0UC257E or XHP35A-H0-0000-0D0UC20E2

4500K 90CRI – Neutral white:
XHP35A-H0-0000-0D0UB445E or XHP35A-H0-0000-0D0UB40E4

3500K 90CRI – Warm white:
XHP35A-H0-0000-0D0UB235E or XHP35A-H0-0000-0D0UB20E6

I think, 80 CRI emitters could be also considered, but a high CRI thrower looks brilliant.

Another (probably stupid) question: If I add multiple items to my shopping cart and choose "ePacket" as shipping method it looks as if I am being charged for shipping cost for each item again and again. In the end this adds up to quite a big amount of shipping cost. Is this correct this way or am I overlooking something and it can be corrected later on before I actually pay with PayPal?

Looking great Simon!!

Good to hear your are still bringing out some new stuff.

About the XHP35 driver, go with a minimum of at least 1500mA, 2000mA would be great if possible.

the amount should be $93.29,
$93.29*85%=$79.3
if you pay for your order on aliexpress, i will adjust the amount to reduce the repeated shipping cost.
if you transfer money to me via paypal ,you can leave me your paypal account, i will send payment request

the inner diameter of L2 for driver is too small for XHP35,
i’m ready to enlarge it to 30mm,
maybe i will use L6 host directly
