If you want a FET direct drive driver and add a de-domed/shawed Sst-40 or an XP-l Hi (I guess you want throw (long range)) you could use a 17mm BLF A6 A17DD-L FET+1 driver but I’m guessing you need a 17mm to 20mm driver adaptor.
I’m guessing you want a long range flashlight. I think you should go for a Direct Drive FET driver with de-domed/shawed Sst-40 or a XP-L Hi or if you can find a good 12V driver that’s fits then go for a XHP35 Hi.
I don’t know what size of the driver the L2 have so just guessing here.
I have an L2 running a xhp35 hi with a mtn buck driver that gets 2480 lumens and 280 kcd with 4 26350 in it. I’ve been thinking about getting one of those kaidomain boost drivers in it and see how it does with 2 26350’s
Btw. If you are going for a DD FET driver make sure your emitter sits on a DTP (direct thermal path) Mcpcb and put on some good thermal paste under it like the Arctic Cooling MX-4 Thermal Compound so it can transfer the heat properly to the flashlight host.
Very nice, thanks for the beamshots and comparison. How do the tints of the new 50.2 compare to other leds Johnkey68? The photos make it seem like the 6500k is pretty warm and the 5000k looks really warm, but I know it’s pretty difficult to get accurate color temperature in most photos. Are they as warm as they look, or different in person? Thanks again, nice mod
I have looked at the options, and Kaidomain H1-A boost driver + XHP50.2 de-domed on the Convoy L2 seems like the most plausible option for what I'm looking for (higher output yet maintaining a decent throw in one cell config.)
Do any of you guys have this particular setup? could you share some more opinions, max lumen output and throw and some beamshots (thanks Johnkey68 for yous), please..?
I also noticed that KDLITKER C8.2 uses an XHP35 HI claiming 2000 lumens (dunno about that) using a 20mm own KD driver (I suspect)
Hello, I have not modified a light enough, I want to build a new L2 from a single battery with xhp 50.2 and controller h1-A, is there any resistance mod for this controller? I have some r100, and then the classic, awg 20 bypass in the springs … any idea of lumens and CD in this configuration? greetings and many thanks!
