According to manufacturer, the MT04 SST20 quad should do 4000 lumens, 650m throw.

Do you have link for this info? 4000 lumens sounds appropriate, 650m throw sounds like a lot. If this is true I will be ordering one. Im just wondering how deep those 4 reflectors are.

I found the info on taobao site, it has some problems with proper loading: MT04

There were pics with both lumens and throw for all versions.

I did double check with BG rep few weeks ago. They have no intention of producing quad emitter version in EA01 body.

Beside ordering an EA01 i took also one MT04. Out of all the quad versions i found only the SST20 4000k high CRI really interesting. Other versions were too floody for me.

There is a rumor mention that they won't be producing any more MT04?

Did you base this off of the online photos? Or do you have other beam shots of the other emitter choices? The sst40 5000k quad really interests me

I talked to manufacturer as initially they had the SST20 quad version only on Taobao. He said that this version is discontinued, but he moved some last pieces also to his Ali stock. I took it because I have another much larger quad with throwy LEDs and I like its beam a lot, tight spot with decent spill. SST20 with 4000K and high CRI also peaked my curiosity, as I dont have any light with this LED yet. As for the other quad versions (SST40 and XHP50.2), they are still being offered, both at Tao and Ali as well. I just think that they are too much of a hotrod in such compact body, limiting its practical use.

The way I look at it, if you want a quad, get the FT02S. EA01 has a wonderful beam pattern with the single LED and the TIR lens. All that goes away by converting it to quad.

I kinda waited too for those quad versions, but after seeing those videos, I’m not so sure anymore. They seem floody which is nice and all, but single emitter option just seems more practical. Really balanced beam and all, when quad just seems to lack that punch to get nice throw too. Maybe waiting some more videos though.

Also can’t decide which color I prefer more, blue or that blueish gray, both are really nice colors btw.

Thats why I considered the SST20 option only. Should be still a tight throwy beam, with good tint and high CRI. Strange that there is no video review of this version, I will maybe post some beamshots when I get it.

Yeah that might do it, but then again I already have MF01 Mini with those and I don’t buy same kind of lights twice. Atleast not very often.
But still those beamshots are welcomed, just might have better throw and beam pattern that would work for me.

The sst20 is interesting me more now that I have seen that video you shared of sst40 and xhp50. Specifically the throw capability of the quad sst20. I’ve never ordered from Taobao, is it possible if you live in the US?

I never ordered anything from Tao, that page even fails to load properly for me due to chinese characters etc. In their Ali store, there is still some quad SST20 stock left, seems that currently the SST40 and XHP50 is sold out.
