So the L21 it is so far, is there any other 21700 thrower out there?? Looking for a thrower that will give me noticeably more than my astrolux c8 which I love by the way.

The L21A comes with XHP35 also since last week, and might throw even better.
My FT03 fits an 21700 as well, but it’s a tight fit

Thanks for mentioning these lights. Smile Looks like L21A is missing, I will add it soon.
As far as I can tell, M21A is just a C8 with 21700 tube, right? If that’s the case, it’s too small for inclusion.

VestureOfBlood posted an amazing video in this thread about the the Acebeam W30. 

  • White laser
  • Pencil thin beam rated at 1.5 million candela
  • Small size, single cell, etc. all meet your spec.

Possible downside: little or no spill makes this a special purpose tool. One poster suggested that it may be ideal for certain boating and marine applications, such as spotting marker buoys at distance without generating huge reflections off the surface of the water.

I still don’t really know what to do about LEP throwers.
Some seem to clearly fit this thread but at the same time they are so different from LED ones that I feel they deserve a thread of their own….

Yes, same head and reflector.

You could always include LEP lights in this thread but place them in their own chart below the main one.

I miss the FT03 with XHP50.2 on the List.
Also would be nice if the available tints for each where listed, although it’s a lot of work and not really necessary.

Thanks for pointing this out, I just added it. I have a feeling there are more measurements to be found but I don’t have the time to do the search…

Thank you for this suggestion as well, though I think it would clutter the table.

Actually I’m thinking about what can I remove from the list to make the rows smaller…

You could combine empty/loaded weight into a single column.

My other thought would be to replace the ‘charger’ & ‘type’ columns with a ‘notes’ column. With most of the lights utilizing a reflector and no on board charging, that would be the default. Then you could add anything outside of that in the notes column (Onboard charging, aspheric lens etc).

I will think about it.
I did some formatting changes already, it’s a bit better.
I see that I forgot to add Convoy L21A – that’s TODO.
I added SBT-90 variant of NI40. This thing performs niiice. Smile

Hi Agro, appreciate your making this table (and also other comparison tables for flashlights which I noticed here in BLF).

Since the list is growing, would you happen to have a spreadsheet version of it online (so can be sorted by KCD, or lumens, or price, etc.)? Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion but due to my time constraints I limited the list to lights that are strictly larger than C8.

I really like that idea. I’ve been looking for some good way to make these lists more collaborative and this might just be the right way to do it. I’ll explore the possibilities in the coming days.

Also, this collaborativity may enable expanding the scope of the list to include throwers of all sizes…

I added Noctigon K1.

As to conversion to a spreadsheet – I did some work on that but have no success so far.
I tried to find a good spreadsheet software for the task.
So far I tried ethercalc. I used that before and I like it but it appears that it doesn’t support multiple links in a single cell.
I ruled out google calc – I just don’t like google.
There are a few other options but I didn’t find time to check them out yet.

Add Acebeam T28?
It has a larger reflector than the Acebeam T27, but the same output. Or is there not enough difference?
UPD: fail, i forgot

Quote:
at most 75 mm head diameter

Also i can not find Convoy L21A, only L2 here.
