Wouldn’t the carriers need to be changed? Or is it going to be set up to be directly compatible with GT4?

Good question, since the SBT90.2 is a 3V LED, where the XHP70 is a 6V or 12V

Well there is 4 of them. Wired in series it would be similar, no?

I’d guess that is how they done it, connections for 20A are easier and more reliable than connections for 80A Shocked

I’m impressed by the simple, good looking and efficient design of the GT4 / GT94, beautiful beasts. Congratulations to people involved, honestly.
But the BLF GT is still my preferred, its tint is a mile better. Shame it as not been CRI 90/95 with maybe, a tad warmer tint.

Crazy performance and pushing the limits even for the size. but at this point I think it deserves a constant current driver so there can be flat regulation for lower modes.

Would the 90.2 make the host more thermally limited than with the 70.2 or about the same?

I assume they could use the same battery carrier if they wired the SBT90 LEDs in series instead of parallel.

Thanks for the Video. I think the GT94 looked the most impressive. But I’ve got the FF5 ordered, 1.2Mlux and 10k L and it’s much smaller. I have nothing against the big lights, I have the GT and a GT70. All of these lights are putting out unreal numbers.

Agreed, all – in 4S it’d be direct swap. And I’m sure someone else thought of that way before me Smile

Time frame for the release of the GT94? Will there be a group buy?

 

I'm definitely interested --- even though I just received my GT4. Big Smile

At some point this is all going to become just about novelty. I mean, how much light you can throw two miles down range becomes a moot point when most of us have to squint just to read a billboard half a mile down the road. Wink

That, or i’m just getting old. Hat shrugs shoulders

Get a few and rent them out to local strip clubs like ~15 years ago (idk maybe some places still do this outside of big events):

now the question is, will imalent, acebeam etc make a similar light now ?

 

Yes they will. Because Acebeam, Imalent and Lumentop are the three biggest innovators.

I will not be satisfied until we can light a large area 5 miles always as brightly as the sun Cool Cool

The 0.25lux standard for determining a light’s range is not the most practical, and I think it can actually dissuade people from throwers. Like you say, you can’t even see stuff a mile away so why would I need a light that throws that far? But it’s always nice to have more beam intensity at closer range. For example 1Mcd at 300m is only 11lux. That level of illumination is definitely not overkill.

For those asking about the setup of the LED’s, yes they are in 4S arrangement and besides the mcpcb and LED’s everything else is the same as the GT4. Thats the only reason it was done honestly as I do not foresee large numbers of these selling simply due to the cost.

Still should be an impressive combo of lumens and throw.

SVK89 is the one that first suggested using 4x SBT90.2 LED’s in this light, I had pretty much dismissed them due to the cost they would add but he and a few others (sorry, can’t remember all the names) convinced me to push the idea.

I am supposed to have one sent to me next week, I will see how it shakes out in the real world then.

Like Djozz I just wish it was available in NW and/or high CRI.

Well the GT90 was on my Christmas list and now I see this! 30,000lm at 1300m Holly flashlights Batman! 1 90.2 is impressive in the right reflector but 4 is incredible! I wonder what a 90.2 behind a reflector lens would look like Big Smile

I was expecting this as the next iteration of Lumintop’s GT series. An awesome light to impress your friends and make them envious. But in my experience it will most likely end up as a shelf queen catching dust. Apart from the flashlight…fantastic advertising. I did not know where to look at first…the girl or the flashlight.  Thumbs Up  LOL

I always appreciate seeing hardware in the hands of an attractive woman. I don’t care if it’s guns, knives, chainsaws, big flashlights, etc. I also don’t care if the outfit is ridiculous, such as wearing a bikini while shooting an AR-15. Of course, the woman in the ad here is reasonably dressed and looks like she is in a reasonable setting to use a powerful flashlight.

The actual product and its technical specifications matter most. It’s just nice to see attention to aesthetics in showing off a product or its use.

Well, I guess the next level is the BLF GT9LEP4 where there are four LEP emitters?

This thing looks absolutely ridiculous, contact your local rescue team to buy them!

If there were 10 or 20 LEPs I’d be interested. Only 250 lumens each at this point.

20 LEPS? You want to pay $4,000 for a flashlight?

For me these big lights due to their weight and size are hardly usable.
Plus the cost.

Are you talking about flashlights or about marriage?

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

Well, no, but that’s the output level where it might become a more useful super thrower. That tech will only get cheaper and more available; maybe we will see affordable multi LEP lights.
