Nightwatch Avaritia NA40GT - 12,000 lumens (advertised)

Found this on Neals Gadgets .

So someone changed the SST40s to XHP50.2. May push the 10 K Lumens (although it states 12,000). Comes with this monster battery 26980, supposedly can deliver 50 amps. This beast eats 38A. 130 watts. The light itself is built like a tank. Very heavy and I think the pill is copper (Someone here did take it apart, the SE version).

States “sold out” – actually never saw in the wild.

Edit Dec. 3rd ’19: Neal says the manufacturer stopped making them. ‘Suppose they had thermal issues…

Thanks for the link. Was wondering why the post didn’t garner more interest.

Too bad I didn’t know earlier, would of maybe taken the plunge. Ok, might not sustain so much lumens, but 5 to 6 k lumens on high is usable (outdoors, cold in Canada). I have the NA40SE and never could get the 26980 battery / extension tube – Air Freight restriction in ‘Canuckland’ for LiIon cells.
