You want cliches?
-only 3.5A? that sucks
-does it come in beige or autumn brown?
-what batteries do I use in it?
-can we have our dog’s name Fido engraved on it?
-I can get better price at that other store PM me…

I prefer the kaidomain one, 1 less cell in series. If it has decent construction we might be able to do a groupbuy with a custom/modded driver that has more amps.

But both of them give you the choice – 2x or 3x cells.

The Fasttech listing states 15W Power consumption which cant be right, it should max around 32W?

Not sure how good a performer the KD is, but It suggests it should operate at 32W which is what should be expected. Visually both look identical other than the printing on the sider.

Hi all! Smile

I received mine a few days ago from FT.

It’s huge and bright.

It can run on two or three 18650 or 26650. Tail switch, five modes including two disco modes, PWM. Plain and solid. Nothing fancy.

The size is impressive. With the full three 26650 setup it strongly reminds of a good’old four D cells Maglite, with a bigger head… and it weights a lot. I thought a Convoy L5 or a Solarstorm DX4 where rather big lights. They look like toys beside.

It does output quite some light – to say the least. I did a quick tailcap current measurement that reads 3.2A (see correction below 2.3A) with three freshly charged 26650. That’s close to 40W which is consistent with a well driven XHP-70 (see corrections below 28W). That’s good news.

The beam pattern, output and throw distance are very similar to a FandyFire UV-S5, a triple XML, 4×18650 soup can. Rather floody but still reaching some distance by shear power. It’s quite spectacular for most people. The big head seems to do a good job at heat dissipation.

I hardly played a few minutes with it yet.

Let me know if i can answer some questions about this light.

patmurris,

Can you post some pictures of the pill? All I have seen are these.

Looks a good product, simple design with a good driver and LED.

patmurris does the light output vary much between 2 or 3 × 26650’s?

@Jubeldum: let me look into that… The pill has two tiny holes for tweezers to grab onto. Not comfortable, but a quick try shows it will unscrew rather easily.

@Rolz: it’s hard to tell… Tail cap current with only two cells reads 4.35A (see corrections below 3.6A). The cells read 4.1V. That’s just over 35W (see corrections below 29W). Still a very good number.

Here we go:

An idea of the light size:


From left to right: Convoy C8, Convoy L5, Fandyfire XHP-70 and Fandyfire UV-S5

The pill:

Some measurements:

Inside diameters driver side: 24.5mm and 27.2mm (where the driver sits)
Inside depth driver side: 14.10mm
Outside diameters: 28.5mm, 31.85mm (threads) and 32mm

PS: you can see there are a few dings and scratches on the body. My parcel arrived with a sticker “opened by customs”… and the extension tube was loose against the light body when they packed it back. Oh well…

Please note the previously measured tailcap currents where wrong.

I was using an old and cheap DMM… and i was a bit suspicious of such good numbers. I just borrowed a more reliable DMM and here are the numbers:

- 3 cells x 4.05V: 2.3A = 28W
- 2 cells x 4.05V: 3.6A = 29W

Sorry for the confusion and optimistic numbers. These are still very decent though.

Has potential. Whats with the Clown Branding? “Fandyfire” Really, so I’m assuming that Pansyfire was already taken then?

I got the unbranded version from Kai Domain. Its pill has a press in driver, it doesn’t have the screw in driver retainer ring.

If we can get enough interest going, Nitro can have a heavy copper pill made for us.

Can you venture a guess on the Lumen output? Does it have mode memory? This light looks quite interesting.

This seems like the perfect candidate for the next BLF Edition light group buy.

With a copper pill, copper MPCB, increased amps and better driver, it would be interesting to see what someone could finalize the price at after it’s all said and done. I know I’m probably not alone with not having any XHP-70 or MT-G lights yet.

I was led to this forum by a google search on this flashlight. I’m wondering if there is any more interest in a group purchase.

Cheers!

Sorry for the late reply…
I’m just starting to put my first lux meter to use with ceiling bounces. Compared to other lights for which i gathered some measured output through reviews, i’m guessing it to be between 2000 and 2500 lumen.

BTW: i does have a peak followed by a rather steep decay… the above estimate is after it stabilized. Not sure the batteries (2 x Soshine protected 26650 5500mAh) or the driver is to blame.

Yes it seems to have mode memory.
