Actually that’s true. I needed to cut my spending in the fall and haven’t bought a light since then. Honestly….it was really hard initially. Still quite hard for like half year. Now….it’s OK. I learned not to desire mediocre lights. Or even OK lights. And ones that may be excelent but don’t match my needs well.

Actually since fall there was not a single must-have light release for me. F.e. I haven’t bought FW3A and I don’t miss it. I believe it’s great but for every of my uses I have a better light already.

This one….is not a must-have either. But I rarely use my Haikelite MT07S because it weighs too much. This should be able to produce a reasonably close beam with much smaller weight and still good enough thermals. And my financial constraints are going to get looser soon.
Still – feasibility depends on UI, unless it’s good I won’t buy.
And on performace – it surely will underdrive the LED somewhat but how much? If too much I won’t buy.
Fried egg beam somewhat worries me as well though. If it delivers both of above point I’ll still need to think whether this light is great enough. Smile

Should be a TA design driver, so I would expect high oerf FET.

If its single cell format same as the FT03 it would have to be a boost driver? I don’t think the 26350 we have can do that many amps like 7 max?

Interested depending on driver info. Will it be using a boost driver instead of FET?

Ugh - you're right, not sure then. A MtnE style boost is probably wayyy too much $$$, and yes, limited amps. Hhmm. Ok, I get it now - the 3V XHP50.2 might be a better option, but in theory, you should get more efficiency of lumens/amp out of the 70 with a decent boost driver. I really dunno why our boost driver prices are sooo much higher than what they do in China, but then again, lot of the China boost (or buck) drivers we've used turned out to be unreliable in the long run, probably over amped them or the quality of the parts, etc.

How’s Convoy only pushing 5300 lumens with a 2S configuration if you can push up to 7000 with a single cell?

Anyone know why the FT02 is smaller but more expensive than the FT03?

Because of the driver. FT02 uses boost driver which is more expensive.
But I think XHP70.2 is too much for this host. Simply not enough mass in the head and no fins just those little ribs on the neck. An L2 head is 90g more weight and it has smaller diameter. With SST40 it has good balance but XHP70.2 is a no go for me in this light. Even a 3V XHP50.2 can make a lot of heat and current.
