Couldn't resist the P60. Payday today you see.

 

Once it arrives in a few weeks I'll review it.

Not sure. When I zoomed in enough to see the LED details, it just became soup. It could be an XM-L but I wouldn't mind an SST-50 either. I could probably bodge that into a Mag with 32600 cells.

Nice find. That amazes me that they are the first to have it. Definitely a sign of things to come. On the Cutter group buy they were saying the T6 has a greenish tint, so I changed my order to a T5 hoping for something better. Can't wait for the reviews.

my question is, will cutter put it on their site With a 14mm star available?

i have heard talk of it but have seen nothing...

 

i would buy a bunch if they do, because at any current it will be brighter than all the previous leds

It looks very much like an Ultrafire C8/Aurora AK-P7/whatever. I have an AK-P7 and like it,

I saw that too. Seems nearly everyone in the thread changed their orders to T5. I guess I'll wait for reviews of the T5 vs. T6 before I buy. This is exciting! Lets hope we see an actual noticeable improvement over MCE/P7 offerings.

Well darn you guys! Smile I just bought the KD C8 CREE XML T6 1000 Lumen. You're right... its all about output so who cares about tint! Hey, at least its a good excuse to buy. I have the similar SpiderFire SSC P7, which is my overall brightest 1 x 18650 light, so this should be a good comparison.

my brightest modified flashlight is my MTE-p7.

i had to change the driver, with 2 cr123's it draws exactly 2.8 amps, HOWEVER, its a C bin, so im lucky to get 500 lumens out the front!!!!

my R5 V6 is about 3/4 the light output on one 18650!!!! (1.4 amps vs 2.8 lol)

 

let me know if that C8 has proper heatsinking or if its a drop-in style light

 

also, check my thread on p7, i want to upgrade my MTE to a Dbin asap, so i have a good baseline uber flashlight to compare to!

Thanks for bringing that up XP. I just assumed that since my Spiderfire has a brass screw-in pill that the C8 would also. Has anyone seen one that is drop-in style or are all C8's screw-in pills?

I bet I'll have to upgrade the driver but maybe not...

I agree, its going to be interesting to see how they compare in similar hosts with well driven LED's.

So what would be a good driver for one of these then running it at full output ? I would prefer to install one in my Surefire l2x extended 2x18650

Couldn't resist. Went ahead and bought the drop-in. I have a couple of empty P60 hosts that needed a little buddy.

Me too, but I ordered the C8, and I'm looking around for some XM-L LEDs now. The P7 drivers and a possible hoist are on the way ...Oh my, I hope my bank account will stand all this "Iwantone-mania" these days...

My pending orders:

DX,  5 orders

LT, 2 orders

KD, 2 orders

It turns out they don't survive de-doming but when properly heatsinked - in this case to half  pound of copper, they can take 4 amps.

Thanks for the link. Thats some good reading. It seems that the XML will probably survive 3A dedomed if well sinked and 4A with the dome. Im very impressed with the 95,000 dedomed lux as apposed to 50,000 with the dome (@3A). As prices drop, this is going to make for many interesting mods. I just might have to buy a lambda 3D mag or one of his proposed kits. How's your 90 holding up Don?

That's not how I read it - I think he's saying that dedoming will kill it as it does for XR-Es.

 

But it wouldn't be the first time I've been wrong.

This seems wrong, that's not how I understand the optics. Most likely he had the wrong focal length with the dome on.

I think the dome is at least partially a beam spreader to get the125o beam angle. Like the SST LEDs the "intrinsic" beam is narrower.
