This light is allmost a killer, two driver host. Sadly, it lacks cooling fins and mass where it counts the most. Sad

Two 9x led beast drivers in and off you go. Would gobble up those 5 cells in a heartbeat.

Using efficient drivers (Senser Xtremes) and assuming 5Ah cells, you would have close to half an hour runtime on 3A.
More than enaugh time to melt that pathetic flashlight head!

9x driver may not have enough voltage to run 9 XML2s - see here: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/27634

Yeah, I read that earlier. I was talking about the stock version.. Correct me if Im wrong but the stock has XM-L T6 in it. Beast driver seems to work flawlessly in my 9xT6 torch. It really slurps up those 3 King Kongs but man it’s a lumenmonster!

i agree. the number of lights they make with the 5-mode driver, next mode memory, and rediculous Lumen claims is getting over-done boring. ( Low,med,hi,strobe,SOS)

this light really needs a Deep cycle RV battery in place of the tube with atleast 1000 CCA, and a 4 amp driver for each emitter.

Did you see the tint rating? 8000-8500K.

That’s just ONE reason why I won’t be buying one Shocked

Lights out! That's when things get interesting...

No way this thing can run to it's full potential without almost immediately smoking the emitters...where is all the heat going to go?  Unless they water cool the dang thing.  Absolute insanity...cool...but still...daggum

12000 lumens, eh? I have NO interest in ANY light that won’t run at full power for more than a few minutes or seconds without throttling back to a lower setting or self destructing. None whatsoever.

the reflector of this 18xm-l appears to be bad I have one 15 xm-l and the reflector its a absolute crap

I think the best high power multiled flashlight for mod are the courui 12 xm-l
