More than 20 flashlights added to the tables. List in this post.
Beamshots added to the tables.
I want to share my flashlight measurement google tables with everyone. It contains a lot of stock flashlights and a lot modded. I mostly try to measure each of them before and after the mods. I have some what I modded before I made the Lumen snake so some measurements missing but since I made Lumen snake I measure every flashlight. I’m using HS1010A lightmeter and UNI-T clamp meter for currents.
Interesting to see that with a remote switch how much lumens the Convoy C8 lost. And how much worth adding two or three 7135-s. The reference flashlight for lumens reading a Skilhunt DS10. It has low current so no heat drop down. The numbers all measured at start.
If a flashlight name has green background it has been modified.
If a flashlight name has blue letters it contains a link to a beamshot with that flashlight on my backyard. The white garage on the top right is 35m and the trees at the top of the image are 100m far.
If a flashlight led type has blue letters it contains a link to a wall beamshot from 4m. Zoomie lights has extra beamshots in M and N columns for zoomed in and zoomed out beamshots.
Beamshot camera and lens: Nikon D3200, Nikkor 18-105 VR
Backyard beamshot settings: 1s, F/5.6, ISO 400, focal length=18mm
Wall beamshot settings: 1/2s, F/8, ISO 400, focal length=18mm

At a separate table on the bottom you can find some Flashlights marked as magic flashlights. They have magical numbers so I don’t want to mix them with the good ones.
Finally here is the Measurement google tables link
An SST40 is on the way to me. I ordered it 1 or 2 weeks ago. I will try it with and without dome. The driver will be a TA17mm and If somebody ask I can try it with Stock 2,8A convoy driver or with 3,5A or 3,85A upgraded convoy driver. I’m curious about it with FET driver and dedomed.
I putted in the Luminus SST40 in a Convoy C8 host with stock lens smooth reflector and a 10x7135 3,5A driver. I only measured the lumens today. Here the numbers compared to other Leds in the same conditions:
XM-L2 U2 1A: 1102 lumen
XP-L HI V2 1A: 1056 lumen
Luminus SST-40: 1122 lumen
Tomorrow or next week I will continue testing it with TA17 triple channel Fet driver and measure intensity and throw.
Just curious, what battery were you running in the Thorfire VG10 when you tested it? Mine will push around 3 Amps on a Samsung 30Q cell. I’m getting 380 lux @ 18 feet (11,438cd) on a slightly discharged cell (around 4 Volt).
ZozzV6, you put a lot of work into these measurements. Thanks for posting your excellent work sir! This helps me make a decision on a mod I’m planning. XHP35 HI really does a good job at throwing. Which is what I love, a good thrower! Thanks man! :+1: :+1: :+1:
Luminus SST-40 measured in Convoy C8 with TA17 driver, AR coated lens smooth reflector. It pulls 8,2A and I got 1938 lumens. Tonight I will measure throw and intensity. And after that I will dedome the led.
I retried the SST-40 with 4 freshly charged batteries. 3 pieces of samsung 25R and one 30Q
The 30Q pulled 8A
The 25R’s are:
I remeasured lumens with the one what pulled 8,6A and it was 2232 lumens So the battery really counts a few hundred lumens.
Now I’m waiting for dark and go out for Cd and throw measuring.
