Silly little question but I couldn’t find an answer

The XHP50.2 model is more powerful (in lumens) so the battery time will be shorter than the SST40 model ?

Is the difference considerable or is it about the same ?

Yes, that’s correct, it’ll be less. It’ll also run much hotter so turbo could be seconds

Which battery would you recommend for the SST-40 version? For maximum run-time at reasonable output. I was thinking about the 4000 mAh 35A 21700 Samsung 40T. But would a 20A 26650 be enough too if one doesn’t care about maximum output? I was looking at a 5300 mAh 20A 26650 Vapcell.

SST-40 consumes 3 amps, so any good battery will do

3A, what? This is a quad set up which is rated at 7000 lumens (SST40) and XHP50.2 is 11000. Certainly isn’t 3A.

I’m personally going to sell these with a Samsung 40T. I don’t have much knowledge on which 26650 would suit.

I’m sorry, but no. The SST40 version of this light will draw much more then 3A, I’m guessing well over 20A on turbo. I’d look for batteries with 25A CDR or more for maximum output. Samsung 30T, 40T, Molicel P42A, Golisi S35, the Vapcell gold 4000mah 30A (rewraped 40T), Xtar INR21700 (P42A rewrap) are the ones I can think of. I ordered the XHP50.2 version and will use the Molicel and Xtar 21700’s for experimenting and showing off and the Liitokala Lii-50A 26650 for regular use. It’s good to about 20A (not 50A).

I’d recommend getting your battery output figures from online tests and reviews and not the battery’s label or sellers claims as almost all are overrated by their manufacturer/distributors.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

The PLB 26650 that Sofirn stocks is very decent. Continuous discharge is 10A but I ran a 20A test and it performed incredibly well. Last test graph on sofirnlight.com is mine.

Astrolux FT03 XHP50.2 version

PLB – 4000 Lumens
40T – 4200

+1. I also prefer 21700 over 26650 nowadays.

Thanks for the info. I’ll most likely go with one Samsung 40T and one Vapcell G53 (5300 mAh 20A 26650) for more run-time.

It’s unfortunate that we have to wait over a month for the orders to be shipped out. I don’t mind waiting and I’ve waited as long as a month and a half in the past. But I didn’t know it would be that long. I figured they already started the manufacturing and assembly process.

Well…..I was just informed as a dealer for Mateminco that this model is still 30 days from being available. That’s ready from the factory, not from Banggood

No idea why Banggood allow the sale so early

This is normal for Banggood. Everyone who orders from Banggood needs to know that they cannot trust Banggoods claims that any product is in stock, when it will be in stock, when it will ship, that it has shipped, or when it will arrive.
There are many posts on this forum about Banggoods sales tactics and lack of ethics. They have popular products and good prices, but are absolutely not a reliable vendor.

Sst40’s have a real low vf and will easily pull 8A when driven hard on an fet. The Ft02s has a an fet driver so it will largely be limited only by the thermal control on the driver and battery. The xhp50.2 3V has a low vf also, and easily pulls 13A or more when direct driven. This light will pull some serious current in either configuration. A 25A capable cell is recommended for max output- asung 30T, 40T, or Molicell P42A 21700.

I see I need to also order batteries. I have the XPH5.0 11k lumen
What would the best battery be for max output and run time? Also how many do i need?
Any recommendations of where to get them?

Me personally I like the Shockli 5500 mah 26650 if a light takes 26650
