Congratulations to Dale and DavidEF!

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

You don’t know how true that is! I’m flabbergasted! Shocked

Now I’ve been looking at the prizes again, and that Sofirn Q8 looks so tempting… but I’m gonna stick with the EE X6. I think. Maybe. For sure. Uh-hmm. Yep. (I won’t change my mind… I won’t change my mind… I won’t change my mind… but the Q8! I WON’T change my mind… I WON’T… )

Fresh roasted Guatemala coffee beans, to be exact! They smelled so good, I couldn’t resist popping them in my mouth! Forget grinding and brewing, that takes too long! LOL

Hey David?
Can I tempt you with an 8700 lumen Q8 that has sliced SST-40’s?

See, the problem is… I don’t have 4x high drain cells. I only have one VTC5 because someone accidently left it in a light that I got from him a while back. The rest of my 18650’s are all laptop pulls.

Ok, so, how about a Q8 with 4 new Samsung 25S cells?

Then the Sofirn Q8 would be your best bet. It doesn’t stress the cells as much as the X6, and you could remove the bypasses for still excellent performance since they feature BeCu springs, and be able to use laptop pulls.

25A capable cells with a capacity of 2500mAh.

Absolute beasts. It’s a chemical rework of the 25R to say the least, and their lower internal resistance can make them punch even harder than the already great 25Rs.

Thanks.

All great info.

But I meant the light.

Dale never disappoints, but I’m curious what it is he’s offering me before I change from the EE X6 of my dreams. Wink

@DavidEF, you want to know the specs?

Imagine a BLF Q8:

- With XPL-HIs/SST40s for mean lumens and throw Smile

- Anduril for that lightning and ramping goodness

- Beryllium Copper Springs with 20AWG bypass(my own springs actually Innocent )

- A 2mm pure copper plate for maximum performance

- UCL AR coated lens

And most importantly, Dale’s touch!!!

Uh, yeah, I cut a copper disc to replace the pcb in the tail, soldered Blue’s large springs directly to the copper and put a 20ga bypass inside em. Up top, LED4POWER’s MCPCB to take the SST-40’s, a nice thick copper DTP board. Sliced the domes off the 40’s to maintain throw like the HI’s were doing. Put a glass UCL lens with the best AR coatings in the industry up top. Smile That’s all.

Edit: Uh, well, almost all. I also hand drilled the 4 tail screws and hand threaded them to take 8×32 3/4” long screws. Smile

Dale, you’re truly OVER THE TOP! Thanks! I’m seriously overwhelmed! I didn’t even expect to win this GAW! Now, I feel like I won the BLF Jackpot of the year a lifetime today! Really! What in the world?! I can’t get over it! Party
