Big chunky light Smile

The reflector is big, but smooth, I expect that the beam has a hotspot with a (at least somewhat) darker center. Banggood does not show a beamshot Wink

I like the look of that host, certainly wouldn’t put a quad die in it though…

Totally agree.
It would make a killer host for the MT-G2, Big reflector, brass shouldered pill,one piece battery tube (finally) forward (momentary)click, looks to be really nice design and machining quality+++!!! The price is too high for me! Unless I could sell the XHP50 to recover some $$$$ Or just buy it as a host?? But that will never happen…..NOT JAX!

Admittedly I don’t know much about Jax, but I got the impression they’re actually pretty good at offering their lights as bare hosts.
The Z1 is available as a shell and even the lens is available separate which is quite amazing. The Mini C8 is also host only (although I have yet to get a shipping confirmation on mine).

But you don’t think this one will be coming out as a host option? That would be a shame…

I doubt it as of now, maybe down the road when the XHP50/70 frenzy dies down? Who knows? We can only HOPE! I for one would buy the (host) say if it was around $40.00 max, build it just to keep for myself? But its hard for me to justify the price, since I bought a K40M for $80.00 shipped in December, you know what I mean…..Richard has the Supfire L3’s for $29.00. I’m going to try those next. Wink But it is a very B.A. looking light!

Like it but the price is too high for a non premium brand.

This light would have been better off with a side switch.

This light is practically screaming out to have an MT-G2 installed Big Smile

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

Hmmm..catch up time for me…

What are the advantages of XML2-U2 XHP 50 or 70 over an XML2-U2? Clearly it is a bigger (5mx5m) led, pumps out a heap more lumens – double – with maybe shorter range like an MTG-2? Sounds just like an MTG-2 – how is it different?

Does it have a nice hotspot like an XML2-U2 can have in a bigger head – and would it transplant into a Maxtoch 2X with good results? Advantages/disadvantages? Runtimes compared with XML2-U2? At 2500 lumens would likely need new driver as well as led board? The data I can find:

Size 5 × 5 mm
Product Options 6 V and 12 V
High-CRI
Maximum Drive Current 3 A (6 V); 1.5 A (12 V)
Maximum Power 19 W
Light Output 2546 lm @ 19 W

Typical Forward Voltage 5.7 V White 1400 mA (6 V); 11.5 V White 700 mA (12 V)
Viewing Angle 120 °
Binning 85°C
ANSI (White)
2- 3- and 5-Step Easy White®
Thermal Resistance 1.2 °C/W
Reflow Solderable Yes – JEDEC J-STD-020C-compatible.

Jax Hunter looks interesting though very heavy at 650gms + 2 × 26650s = getting up towards 1kg mark.

Thanks Max didn’t see that, the price is good if I wanted a XHP50. How about a Host? I don’t want to strip the emitter and driver out of it, got a box full of gut’s laying in the closet. Wink

For those who are interested, X6 hunter host: http://www.banggood.com/JAX-X6-Hunter-Tacltical-LED-Flashlight-Shell-Host-26650-p-976049.html

I’m not sure if to order now or wait, it is way too expensive.

EDIT: just realized it has been mentioned in DayLighter’s review.

I just ordered a host from Banggood using M4D M4X’s code and it worked quite easily. Thank you! Smile

Now where did I put that Q0 MT-G2…..

Kawi, this one’s largely on you… you made it sound like a light I absolutely had to have so I hope you’re happy now! Silly

I could zip back in time and give a Jax X6 Hunter to Samson and he could wipe out the army with a fine light instead of the jawbone of an ass. Smile

I have one of Richards buck drivers on the way, as it turns out, so I might use that driver here to run an HI emitter. Not sure, will have to look at the options and figure it out. I do like the idea of an MT-G2 in it, but sight-unseen it’s just difficult to say.
