[Sale] WildTrail BLF D80 V2 with XHP50.2 - limited quantity

Hello everyone,

Jacky Zhang (LuckySun / WildTrail) asked me to post some good news about their latest model, the BLF D80 V2.

Apart from the SST-40 and XP-L HI versions they now also offer a 3V XHP50.2 5.700K version on their AliExpress store.

They have limited quantities at a very reasonable price around $ 28.00 available now.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000333646371.html

 

According to Jacky this version is being / was tested by DB Custom and uses Bistro UI like the other two versions.

The stated output is:

1. 0.01A at 1 lumen
2. 0.04A at 15.5 lumens
3. 0.34A at 139.6 lumens
4. 0.70A at 280 lumens
5. 2.03A at 772 lumens
6. 5.71A at 1843 lumens
7. 14.81A at 3410 lumens
 
Unfortunately, the original mastermind behind the BLF D80 V2, TheOnlyDocc, is still left without trace. Sad
However, if you have any questions, I will be glad to answer them or forward them to Jacky (LuckySun / WildTrail).
 
Cheers,
Thomas

I hope Docc is ok, or will be, and pops up again at some point.

The 3V XHP50.2 is a pretty ridiculous led to put in a light as small as the D80 but we are BLF so why not, it has been done before, the D4 is even smaller and has more output. I’m not in because of the tint and tintshift of the XHP50.2 but I see the attraction Smile

I like that its done, but i like to have some longer performance instead of battery draining lights and 20s Turbo

I missed work due to the fires, the whole city was evacuated, had to throw away all our food due to lack of power, and blah, blah, blah, but I am still, of course, very interested, though I really shouldn’t be. I would love to see a beamshot. Very tempting.

I will ask Jacky to provide a comparison beamshot of XP-L HI, SST-40 and XHP50.2.

Thanks. Do you know where to find Dale’s review, or is it still in the works?

I don't think there is a review yet and I'm not sure if he is up to creating one. I was only told that Dale did some testing. Maybe he will be so kind to chime in and tell us more about it.

I know it is a bit of overkill, and I love the sst-40, but this is the emitter I was originally hoping for. I just wonder if it is too many amps to be practical.

Anyone know what happened to Docc?

I’m not that interested in the XHP50.2 because the tint shift sucks. I rather see a 21700 tube offered for the light since the tube diameter is already larger than many 21700 lights. The 21700 will allow the light to hold its output much better throughout the discharge curve.

I don't dare making any assumptions and I thought long and hard before putting down these lines.

The last time I had contact on Skype with him was September 11, 2019. From that day on the contact broke off completely, i.e. he did not appear on TLF, BLF or Skype ever since. Jacky Zhang (LuckySun/WildTrail) also lost contact with him. Sad Before he disappeared, the Docc told us here on the BLF D80 V2 thread that his mother was expecting a difficult medical operation. In that same time he informed me that he suffered from serious health issues that I don't want disclose in detail for the sake of his privacy. Whatever happened to him, let's put our best hopes in a speedy recovery for him and his mother and that eventually he will show up again on BLF someday.

Oh man, I’m wishing him and his mom will be well soon. Hoping he will show back up on BLF in the future.

Are the springs bypassed on this? I was wondering how the switch would handle the amperage.

So, if someone did need a replacement switch,  is it a standard model or proprietary to this manufacturer?

I have asked Jacky today. He will check with the factory to tell me the exact brand and component number.

Regarding the springs, all three versions are made the same way, i.e. no spring bypasses.

Please find below a beamshot comparison of all three WildTrail D80 V2 versions.

If I didn't already have the SST-40 version, I would be all over this.  :-)

I just took mine apart. It’s an Omten switch, but not the usual white one I see. It’s black, 12×17×10mm It’s got a “3” on the plunger, and an “A” on the body. It also says “PBS-101C” on the switch body itself. The 101C-400 is a switch model that matches dimensionally and is rated 30V 1A, but the markings don’t match up 100%. It certainly feels different than any of the other Omten switches I’ve used, with very little mush at the beginning of travel and a very crisp actuation.
