Looking for a 26650 thrower

I’m looking for a good 26650 light to mod. I would like to build a super thrower. I have a new m2x-ut and an old modded m3x and a sr90 with the newest bin sst90 but I want to build a pure throw light. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

I think I'm afraid of the darkness

I’m also looking for a nice 26650 thrower. The Convoy L2 with an XPL-HI seems to be good for a medium thrower but I’m looking for something 220k candela or more.

Doesn’t look bad, seems like a perfect candidate for an XPL-HI. It seems the XM-L2 in it does around 160k candela o a XPL-HI should put it over 200k.

The boss looks like it would be perfect to mod. I like the idea of four parallel cells

My L2 do 303k Lux (best reading) with Dedomed XP-G2 S2 direct drive (no driver) and 5.5A tail.

Wow, that’s going to be hard to beat. 303kcd is a very long distance.

Thorfire S70? Not long been released and they seem well made.

UF 1504 has to be on the cars surely?

I have bought in a Group Buy as a host. I’m running a de-domed XP-G2 and direct driving it. No idea of lux numbers as I haven’t got a way to measure them. But I can tell you it significantly out throws my Olight Javelot M3XS -UT. Albeit with a much narrower beam.

Other people building these where claiming 200,000 – 250,000 lux for similar setups.

EDIT:

I completely forgot I took some pics of mine, just found them via Google looking for the pic above….

What is the beam like? Seems like it would be a tiny pencil beam.

Lionheart when will that light be coming out?

Cloggy I like it but don’t really want an Op reflector.

jhlb I’m not familiar with the L2 what brand is it?

On the 18650 side the acebeam k50 and the Tk61 especially the Vinh modded one. Are really impressive

Just get home from playing with the S70 and S50 Thorfires
Too rainy for pics
But they both lit up our house almost like it was day, oh yes from 100 meters away.
The S50 has no side switch so the pill is very easy to remove. S70 has an mode side switch with cell status indicator, so more to solder when modding but it takes 2 26650 cells.

The S50 is a beast as well
click and the whole pool area at 50 meter is lit almost like day
On med it lights up our house much better then a C8 on full from 100 meter, at low it is a tiny little less.
But it uses 2 × 18650 cells

A 1405 with a dedomed XP-G2 S4 2B will make 500+kcd with a MTN-MAX driver at 5.5 amps. If you are OK with the light as a host there’s not much out right now that beats it without significantly more effort and cost. If you’re not a fan of it do a direct drive driver in a Brinyte B158 with a dedomed XP-G2 S4 2B and you’ll have 330+kcd.

Enjoy.
