That looks like a fun light. The lens seems not larger (or just a fraction) than the (60mm diameter) lens of the Uniquefire UF1405.

Yes it does look like fun! According to the info the lens is roughly 73mm – seems to be several colours too (light).

It depends on what dimension the 73mm is referring to, I interpreted it as the outside diameter of the lens holder. But you could be right too.

Looks like a big thermos bottle…. and a lot of fun. Although this version here has the LEDs arranged off center axis. Not sure how this affects die focus… probably not good.

Here’s a non-aspheric version…. that looks like it has two business ends… and 9 (!!!) 18650 cells.

So what LEDs are inside
a RGBW Cree chip wont be close to 30W advertised

Probably 4 separate emitters on a star like this?
