fan-cooled sst-90 flashlight

the powertac destroyer…. it has a built in cooling fan ..!!!!!!
i think it has a big battery pack inside….

i held one of these 10 days ago at a show….
i had it next to a defiant 3-D xm-l
it was a little bigger and maybe 3-5 times as bright
with a little bigger hotspot….

the following is from the other forum ….
i googled it and there’s not much info….

“”“Well, I don’t know much about it actually. I am told it has 2100 lumens, has an on-board cooling fan and I believe I was told that it is powered with its own battery system (pretty much just like the SR series from Olight). What I don’t know, but very curious to find out, is if this particular light is more similar to a SR95 Ultra Thrower, the standard SR90 or the SR91. In comparison, I’ve observed the standard SR95 (non Ultra Thrower version) and at initial face value, it seems to be similar in spec(s).

Olight SR95 – Roughly $450. Lumens – 2000. Similar styling to the Powertac Destroyer.
Powertac Destroyer – Quoted MSRP $450. Lumens – 2100. One noticeable difference is the beam selector switch.

Here are the specs that were sent to me. Based on what I’ve read from the spec sheet, this is probably a pretty heavy hitter of a light..

The PowerTac Destroyer high-power LED flashlight is designed specifically for outdoor use. The Destroyer provides tremendous illuminating power as it uses a high-efficiency cutting edge LUMINUS SST-90 LED, which can generate a penetrating and perfectly focused 2100 lumen light beam. It uses a magnet-ring switch for changing brightness modes and magnetic contact charging for more convenient and reliable operation. It’s portable, yet powerful and delivers on design, performance, quality and reliability. It is the preferred choice of many professionals and ideal for military, police, adventure, hunting, or search and rescue teams. With the Destroyer the user is prepared for any unexpected situations.

Only big problem here is the SST90 is becoming a bit “dated” and over shadowed by the new Cree emitters like the XHP70. (even Luminus’s own SBT70 is head of the aging SST90 somewhat.
