*SOLD*For Sale: Heavily modded toilet plunger ~7000 lumens*SOLD*

THIS is the monster in stock form.
I just bought this from 18sixfifty to see what it was like, and I was very impressed. Makes my black SRK from CNQG look hopeless. This is the information I got from 18sixfifty:

**It’s got great heat sinking and a very simple driver that is FET based so it cranks. I could actually crank it higher but it’s pointless. It gets screaming hot when it’s cracked up any more. It’s good right were it is. When I bumped it up more it didn’t do any good because thermal sag just dragged it back down. This seems to be optimal for it. It handles this heat well.

The emitters are just the old T6’s but they have a nice cool tint. The de-domed ones mix well with them and give it a cooler neutral. So it’s not quite neutral but close. It’s over 7,000 lumens with good batteries. King Kongs or Sony Green 30amps anything like that. Don’t bother trying to use protected batteries though. The amp draw is so high that it will pop the protection on them. But good high amp batteries run it great.

The low on it is right at 1,000 lumens and medium is about 4,000 lumens. Which is still unreal bright.

The emitters are actually on one large round star so it was really fun pulling six off and de-doming them and reflowing them back on. But I have it down now so it’s no problem. Just time consuming making sure to get them all on correctly.

It does get hot but surprisingly it handles it with no problem. But even so I would only use high as a turbo a couple minutes at a time at most.

The throw is surprising for a flooder. Some of it is just raw power but after de-doming it really added a bunch to it. **

As bright as it is, I just don’t have any use for it because of it’s size, but for those out there that like this form factor, it’s unbelievably bright. It’s in the same condition I got it, with just a few nicks and scratches on the bezel from when 18sixfifty modded it.

I bought it for $100, happy to sell it locally for that much (Aus) but with overseas shipping it’ll be about $120. Also happy to negotiate a price with 3 26650’s with 1 charge cycle on them.

Bought from here:

I’d rather have something smaller and less bright (SRK)
I’ve never owned a torch of this style (toilet plunger) and as insanely bright as it is, I’ll never use it. It takes 2 TK75’s to equal the amount of light this thing puts out though, you can’t get much better in the lumen : dollar ratio.

smaller and less bright, are you sure your on the right forum?
If i had the money i would have already taken it off your hands, and upgrade it to XL-L2 for more lumens, i may not use it much but whe i did it would turn night into day

Forgot to do beamshots last night, it was freezing!!!
Anyway, I just took a couple of photos with my crappy iPhone in my lounge room with heaps of ambient light, but you get the idea. The difference in brightness isn’t really shown well, I think it’s the auto setting of the iPhone camera trying to even up the light in the photo or something.



Edit: you can see the damage to the bezel, that is damage from being modded says 18sixfifty. Also in the last photo, the SRK is obviously the beam on the left.

Is that bottom left LED (with the black dot) ok?

This is not a toilet plunger. This is a drive shaft out of an earth mover!

 Great keychain light. You'll never lose your keys in the grass next to the driveway, or in the chair cushions, etc. Laughing
