Wow!! That is awesome. You must have connections. Cool

There was a thread I read earlier where people were talking about if this would happen.

Looks great. I feel like the heat sinking on the GT is better suited to handle the heat but it obviously a heavier light too.

27 amps in a flashlight? Scary! Time for an extra long battery tube to feed that beast.

+1 for an upgrade kit. I’d be very interested in one for both my GTs.

Will be quite a kit, including 3V battery carriers, new driver, new centering ring.

And thank you for another good review Matt!

Thanks for the video, these are really good news about the BLF GT.

If the SBT90.2 emitter would be available in at least 80 (but preferably 85-90) CRI, and not just around 6000K, that could make even better thrower flashlights (I’d probably go for 4500K in this case).

The BLF GT as a host is really something – it is getting nice upgrades over the time.

This emitter could also justify a (let me call) ‘BLF GT Mid90’ variant with 100mm diameter reflector (instead of 120mm) and 2×3×18650 battery carrier (supporting flat top batteries out of the box) – and probably around 50-60% weight of the original BLF GT.

Been waiting for this one. About double the candela of the OG BLF GT! This emitter is really impressive and this host is what is required to fully maximize its potential.

That’s not as much as you think due to it being 3v. 27A x 4v is about 108 watts. The 70.2 version was about 8A x 15v or 120 watts.

Are you sure? I think the xhp35-hi was about 1.2-1.3Mcd and this version is about 1.8Mcd. Not really double, but definitely more, plus a bigger hot spot.

“I could help you find your car keys”
Best line ever in one of your videos!
LOL

Showed my wife the video and she laughed her azz of at that line.
Being I own the original BLF GT she gets it.

She was also impressed by the Nightwatch Stalker (Me too) so maybe that will be a new acquisition that is available right now.

Thanks Matt!
Later,

Okay what’s the story with the mechanical switch amperage rating? Does it get hot or risk of fire?

Neuh, it will be fine. It seems to use this switch:

I tested it a few years ago and it was completely fine at 16A, and probably well over that. If the electrical connections are good I see no reason to worry.

I have found the Omten switches to hold up fine til you get over 31A, then the plastic case melts and fuses the switch. (Or I’ve seen it happen, don’t know if it always will)
