Sample ready to ship. Paging for TomE !
Nice, I’m really curious what the inside of this looks like. I’m thinking it might make a great Xhp-70 host.
Ooops, replied to your pm this morn - bring it on!
freeme, add me to the boss1 list please. Thanks
Did you get any definite info on the head diameter?
I just requested custom sizes of a few UCLp lenses from Chris at flashlightlens.com, including for the new Convoy L2 and UranusFire 818, so they are shipped and on the way. If this is plain glass, thinking it is, then a UCLp would be an awesome upgrade. He's got sizes in 73, 76, 88, and 93 now, but sounds like he can turn over a custom size in plastic (UCLp) quick. Glass is a whole # story - needs mins and time. The big UCLp's get a bit pricey, and still have to see if the 2.25 mm thickness will work out ok.
cant wait to see the review! This host looks very promising!
This light looks like it's made for the EFEST 4200 26650 cell - best cell on the planet right now, least I know of... I got a few more on order, planning on running 4 of them in this. Really for max throw, it comes down to the quality/design of the reflector. Some designs can kill throw, and can't be tuned, but there are also serious variations from piece to piece in reflectors, so never can tell. A UCLp should give a nice boost on throw - they always do.
Wish I could read Chinese - wonder what the X960 means, was hoping it's 96 mm head or reflector . 960 doesn't seem to match up to anything else, unless it's just a sort of model #.
960 meters of throw (in stock form, pre-mod throw)
You can take your time to measure your unit before placing your mod kit.
X960 is the flashlight model in the center.
I say make it 4s and put a XHP35 in there with a diamond Reflector. “now thats a light” (think crocodile dundee voice)
So the X960 is 45mm head diameter and the boss1 is approximately 2.6 X960's wide. Roughly 115mm head diameter? Just did it in paint, so I wouldn't go trusting it too much. :P
Things tend to look a bit bigger when they are closer to camera.
Damn it, a 4 x 26650 light, now I’m going to have to purchase it. If there’s a list, please add me to it.
True, I kinda want to recreate the picture with similar sized flashlights to see how much difference there is... Hmm, project for when I get bored.
Just fyi, it's SRK soup can style, super sized, 4 cells in parallel, but still, should be awesome runtime and maxing out the 4v capability of the emitter.
The handle is budget all the way - that slip over rubber sleeve, little weird, and the tail switch is kinda strange as well for alight like this, but who cares really - this light has just one purpose - max, and I'm thinking max throw.
Still, I'd probably drop in a Tiny25 with Bistro firmware - just because I can, and it's easy. Doing a Convoy L2 now, same way basically. Thinking of a de-domed XP-L V6 1D - got a couple in from IOS, but he's sold out of the LED's. Might have to get a couple XP-L V6 1A's from Richard. Could also go with a de-domed U4. I just have no luck with XP-G2's...

I am curious to see how are 26650 cells going to slide over those bumpy protruding contacts on a driver pcb while you screw in or out the battery tube!
Serious, Sirius9, me too!
