Looking for ideas on a jaw drop convoy L2 build

I have a L2 body but I cannot decide if an xplhi or a 3v xhp50.2 emitter would provide the most efficiency this light can produce. What do yall think is a killer combo for the l2?

There is this one olsen led that not to many people know about. Its similiar to the larger olsen flat white 2mm but with a higher LES and higher thermal properties. If I remember right its it’s called (LE Q8WP) super neat led. Its dedomed with a AR coated small glass covering it. I was able to get 1500 lumens with a fake A6 Fet driver.

I find more throw looking more impressive than a wall of light. Maybe an xhp35 would be a nice compromis of the two options (xpl hi vs xhp50). Although the hotspot of an xhp35 is just slightly larger compared to an xpl hi in the L2.

Think an xhp50 wont do this light justice then? I’ve read somewhere that an xpl hi would be better

I just finished my single 26650 L2 with a dedomed sst40, simple 7135 cc driver pushing close to 9 amps (7135 add ons) and I plan to pop in those new BeCu springs being sold here once they come in. Mighty fun build. Not a powerhouse for output like an XHP 50 would be I imagine but I’m realizing that I prefer these format lights generally be my throwers Smile beefy too! It’s a hair more intense than my FT03 w/ domed sst40 and the dedome makes for a floral shape when <10m but that’s not what I use a thrower for.

If I can get my hands on another and if I had a Christmas list that came true, the rumored new oslon would be another build of mine. Or XHP35 HI with a nice boost

I finally decided. I’m going with a xhp70.2 with 2s + zener mod.

The white flat 2mm^2 is the better LED. It has multiple advantages and has the same thermal properties (see datasheets).

I ordered a few from vinh. Not sure what I’ll stick them in though.
