oh my… I wonder if I can find excuse to say no to this? :bigsmile:
pm sent!

You can a spend a lot more and not have as versatile a tool.
Heck, buy 2, one as a primary & second as a backup.

I was very happy with the way your last group buy worked out. Everything went smooth and I got my light in perfect condition and a timely manner. Glad to see you are doing another one.

I am going to read up on MT26 some.

Is it a linear driver?

Thanks Kodachrome, that's nice of you to say.

Thats a good question Bort. I have never dissected one of these before, I'm hoping it has at least some boost capability ( like my other nitecores), but I cant say for certain. If anyone else happens to know please chime in :)

Last Gen LED?
I really like your group buys, they turn out quiet nice.

someone who owns one can chart current drawn over time, if it rises linearly as the battery is depleted its a boost driver (likely a linear boost)

Looking forward to trying these out. Thanks!

“I’ll take (1) one” - PM sent. :slight_smile:

I’ll take one. Thanks.

XML U2? Not XM-L2?

I am pretty sure your correct. That is what it says on the manufacturer web page is XM-L U2.

I will say that in spite of them using gen one LEDs, they lumen output numbers I have seen from them so far are very realistic. I tested one of the MT2As in my own sphere and it came within a hand full of lumens of what was printed on the box (280). I'd say any discrepancy there was due to my sphere is home made from a $20 light meter :)

Lights are headed my way :) I should have them mid next week.

I wonder if we can open the head or the pill to get access to LED so we can swap it :slight_smile:

It’s gonna open for me no matter what. :wink:

I have one of these somewhere. I should dig it up and see if I can do an emitter swap. It’s a very nice light.

OK this is really one of the more embarrassing moments in my life. I have realized I dont have time to fully execute this buy before I leave for my honeymoon in a few days. As a result we're going to have to postpone this.

I am refunding the money that was sent to me once I finish this message and PM will be sent along too. I will be back in late June from vacation and we will revisit it then.

Again I am very sorry about this. I guess on the bright side since interest in this light was low, casualties are very minimal :)

Have a good week everyone.

congrats on the wedding mate and best of luck.
