Recommend me 1-3 cell floodlight, maybe even 4 cell

So like the topic says I’m looking for a good floodlight that can sustain maximum amount of lumens. 1-3 cells 18650/21700/26650 size. High CRI is a plus, but atleast 5000k tint or lower.
Ramping UI is a big plus too and internal charging, but not necessary.
Lights I already got is SP36 BLF Anduril and MF01 Mini so those are out of the question. I will also get Acebeam H30 which is pretty floody headlamp so something different this time.

Price range well not sure about this. Budget solutions are usually ok, but could go for a premium brands too if I really get more bang for my buck.

Only suggestion that I have, if you’re willing to build:
Convoy L6 with the MTNElectronics L6 Momentary Driver and the the XHP70.2 5000K 90CRI LED
I personally built this and got the SMO reflector that MTN sells for the L6. Even with that still floody.

Modding/small builds are ok. Never had a Convoy and should get one at some point. Thank you for your advice.

I been looking for a different options and Emisar D18 with SST-20 4000k 95CRI seems like a great option. Never had any of those lights and still waiting until new D1S comes out.
Not sure about extra floody optics that is an option, anyone got beamshots comparing regular and extra floody optics? Do I get both if I order it with extra floody just to swap them between different uses?
What about constant lumens, something like 2000 as I read from TK’s review?
Any ideas why there is no Samsung LH351D 90+ CRI led option? Would that even be better or not? I read that Hank does custom builds for this one so gotta think about this.

Other lights that are still on consideration Fireflies ROT66 gen 2 with Nichia 219B’s. but what lumens that give out? No listing on product page about that. Still I have a feeling that because both lights cost about the same then Emisar D18 should be the number one choice because better build quality, better driver (?) and overall better performance?

Also looked some Haikelites which seems a bit too expensive compared to those two and I’m leaning on D18 at this point.

You’re very welcome, glad to help, despite my small contribution Smile

I personally adore the SST20 4K 95+CRI LED, the triple works great on a FET Driver (Just waiting for Simon’s special MCPCB to come in the mail for the S12) and a single is great as an EDC in the S2 (Which gives me the ideal amount of flood and throw at the same time for me)

Yeah I have those same leds in my MF01 Mini and also liking it a lot. Even though 5000k LH351D’s that my SP36 BLF hosts are pretty nice too, but cant really choose which I prefer more. Maybe 4500k would be my “ideal” tint for this so maybe getting D18 with mixed leds so getting close to that.

I just need something really floody to get a rid of the darkness in a places like these that I enjoy and also for a photography:

Indoor use like those WW2 era bunkers and big areas like old quarries and just for a general use outdoor light. Lights that I used in those two first pics was Sofirn SP40 4000k with dc-fix, pretty good and SP36 BLF.

Still open for suggestions. I could even consider 4 cell light. What is the current “flood king flashlight”?

Damn, those first 2 pix are like from a level of D00m. LOL

Got an SP36? Slap on some diffusion film for a coupla bux. Nice flooder, and cheap ‘cause you already got the pricier bits.

You might consider a Haikelite MTO3 TA; it is very floody and puts out a lot of light; good value in terms of lumen/$. I have one and have used it for ambient lighting.

Yeah I have SP36, but not really wanting to turn it into that kind of flooder cos my MF01 Mini does pretty good flood on small quarters with silicone diffuser.
Both works yeah, but outside on big open areas they just dont got enough kick to light it all, you know.

Thanks, now I got three choices, D18, MF01S or MT03 TA.
Any idea how many constant lumens that HaikeLite puts out? Good mass and even heavier brass version also. Hmm so many choices and I havent even checked Acebeams yet.

Well just because these places are awesome, really nice and chilly at hot summer days and atmosphere is really special I make a pic dump:

Some bugs flying around at entrance.

Unless its summer, there seems to be bats sleeping and ceilings full of spiders because its not freezing cold inside even on winter.
