Update: Feb. 8 2013: I just received my TF Flame Protected 26650 cells from Fasttech and can confirm that they will not fit. not even close. I cannot even get the tailcap to the first O-ring. With one TF protected and two TF unprotected I can just get it to close over the last Oring, but I didn’t want to try going for completely closed. It may be possible by modding the driver cover so the center portion is removed allowing the battery to directly contact the driver spring. That may be just enough space to allow these cells in. For reference, the protected cells are 68.5mm long and the unprotected cells are 66.6mm long.
Review has been updated.

And as a reminder, the other day I added outdoor beamshots! Looking at them again reminds me of how large an area this thing can light up from a long way away.

Welcome the night.

Yes it is. Thanks for making me look and realize that I didn’t link to it in the review!
Adding now.

39.4W ~1464 lm -and that’s why luminus sucks Smile
you could get almost that much light with half the watts with xml2 and 5 amps (strip some resistors) and much more lux probably Wink

I will note that I do not trust my lux meter at all. I am waiting on a new meter before doing more absolute lux and lumens measurements; relative readings are fine. The before and after comparison, for example.

Added a link in the Mod post above to link to the MT-G2 mod thread, here
Still preliminary, I’ve only had an hour or so with it; results are mixed so far…

So basically a Trustfire X6 but with a 3×26650 tube.

It sounds like the XM LEDs won’t really be suitable for flashlight use. Pity…

Correct. IMO, the way the X6 should have been.

Based on the drive current alone (7A), it should perform better. Most X6 owners report an emitter current right around 5.5A to 6A.
