3A driver 3x IMR 26650, anyone? At 120W, this’d be quite a wall of light. But not with a long runtime Big Smile

If you beleive those specs I’ve got a bridge you are sure to be interested in.

Are they 10,000 mAh 18650 batteries?

Woot!

Might be the same as the 9 x XM-L level of drive, ie a wee bit better than the Trustfire X100. Not too bad.

Should be able to get very very close to 4000 lumens OTF/Out-The-Front and able to sustain that for 20 mins easily.

Can’t find this on aliexpress. Wait a few days more.

That has got to be one of the worse looking multi-led head layouts I have seen. There is way to much wasted space in there. Its also interesting that they list it as drawing 45watts, anyone know what some of the other 7/9led torches draw in watts? I found a post talking about the x100 pulling about 40-42watts so 5 more led’s and only around 5 watts more? and with way less throw because of that horrific layout…. yea I will hold onto my x100. Silly

Yea a single MTG2 in a huge reflector like an X6 or something like that would be amazing as long as the driver actually drove it correctly. Right now stock drivers in a lot of these lights are the largest turn off for me. I really need to learn more and how to solder again so I can do some swaps myself.

It should have better efficiency and cooling should be easier than with an array.

The low mode should be lower.

The unused space is for 6 more XM-Ls. Next gen. 18 x T6, 4 more months.

That’s a 80mm head diameter. Would anyone want a 150mm head diamter 12 x T6 budgetlight with type 2 ano @ $150? No way.

Yep, it contains the US government recommended minimum deadly requirement of the 8 essential carcinogens… why do you think it tastes so good?

Oh god, I’m too young to die. Tired

Did the US government ban or at least regulate sales of the Taiwanese tapioca bubbles?

The irresponsible Korean government didn’t even say a word about it. fucked

C’mon they still don’t get this. The numbers of LED doesn’t matter too much, important thing is driving each LED HARD ENOUGH!!

They are more efficient at lower levels.

The low mode should be lower.
