Trustfire X7 T8 SST-80

What is the stock lux on the X7/T8? For some reason I haven't seen much about this light, have I been living in a cave somewhere? I can't find any review or figures for throw. In stock configuration, will this out-throw a Solarforce MPP-1? I have been looking for a light that will out-throw my MPP-1 but not cost a ton of money (like less than $75). From what I have read, people measure the MPP-1 as high as 52k lux with the UCL lens (which I have).

This light can be purchased from a US seller on eBay for $69 shipped. If this does much more than 50k (or am I just dreaming on that number??) lux stock then it may be my next purchase.

 This comes with the SST-80, but the XML will produce more throw?

 I have never swapped an emitter or a driver before, but I think i could do it easily enough. Is there a driver that would drive this light harder than the one that it comes with?

That was with an SST-50 though, I believe the updated (?) version I linked to is an SST-80.

 

EDIT: Does the SST-80 even exist? Starting to wonder why I had never heard of it, and after some research it seems it does not exit.

It doesn't. This flashlight has either SST-50 or XM-L (wrong description).

SST50 all the way.

It's crying out for the XM-L swap...

If not, why haven't we seen this LED in flashlights?

Yeah, it's about 42k cd ballpark.  There is a SSM-80 and SSM-50.  Also SSR-50.   Eg http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?247683-SOLD-Luminus-SSR-50-1xC-Flashlight-With-Neutral-tint-Top-Bin-(GJ201)

There is also a current production CSM-360.  100W

They have been used, but few here would buy (even last time).   Folks are already refraining from purchasing 50-60 bucks light (42 bucks for a triple XM-L, it needs to be low), let alone a LED that costs 50-few hundred bucks?  And seriously you'd need a better/bigger host for that to work, way too much heat.

My original one is from HERE and it should be a SST-80.

Means: X7 with SST80 = 43800 Lux.

 

First i try the original light, i had laughed about the output/size.
