The banner on top says $31.99 but when you click it, it comes up $36.99

That is, when you choose the USA warehouse
If you select CN warehouse and use code AFT03 it comes up 31,99

I used the code AFT03 and bought the FT03 Sw40 5700k version. Since this is a thrower I want the maximum throw. This will throw further. run cooler and run longer, which for me is a good trade off for the extra lumens of the 50.2. While it won’t have as much spill as the 50.2, I have other bright, floody lights,like the D4S for that, but none that will throw as far.

I had to have one of every flavor.. way before the 3v 50.2 came out, I modded one of mine with it and for throw I de-domed a few SST-40’s and well the throw….it is impressive..for a $32.00 light..

Anyone dedomed a XHP50.2 in this light yet? I would think it would be comparable to the SST-40 then but with more lumens.

What would be the actual benefit?

Should be more lumen output than the 40 but about the same size hotspot.

Yeah I made a couple attempts….when the dome lifted so did the phosphorous…had a pretty decent one, then I dropped it, of course it landed face down, but I have yet to try the way I did the SST-40’s…..

Just received mine. Terrific light! Performance similar to the L6 and love the built in charging.

One thing to note, mine shipped from Bang Good in Dubai and not China (?)
