C8 8*7135 Biscotti CSLNM1.TG US $17.95, if you request the BLF discount or you use the coupon you can find at “Convoy Flashlight Fans” FB group you should get 15% discount, a bit over $15. It should get at least 500m to 600m ANSI throw (divide by 3 to get useable throw). You will also need batteries.
ggf is right. You want the Osram NM1 emitter in this case. I always like to support Simon. He may install the 5A linear driver (which is actually about 4.3A) if you ask him and it should deliver about 30% more output than the 3.04A 8*7135. They sell for a few cents more individually, but I’d recommend it. He usually won’t charge for modifications.
As for the S2+, I’d recommend asking simon for either the old S2, S6, or S8 to be used with this emitter instead with their much deeper SMO reflector.
If you are only looking for pocket-carry lights then ignore this post.
Check out the Defiant pistol grip spotlights at home depot if you want a big light bang for the buck. Regular priced about $20 but i’ve gotten them for half-off on clearance.
They use an 18650 lithium and will light up your back yard or throw a beam half a mile down the road. i have both the 2” and 3.5” reflector mirror diameter versions, and they work great when i want to see what is out there.
There is also a regular $10 ($5 on clearance) Husky version with 3” reflector that uses 3 C-size alkaleaks. Would probably be a good one to mod over to lithium. It throws far and bright too.
Using code 41RN47QH785B from Facebook “Convoy Flashlight Fans”. Has the Osram emitter and 5A driver recommended by ggf31416 and JaredM . An orange one is making its way to me now! Thanks for the advice.
I received my first Boost HX in the mail this week from Simon. I’m away from home now but I’m going to perform an output test when I get back. I’ll compare it to a cslpm1 from Hank (intl-outdoor). I’ve not seen a test posted here yet which honestly I find shocking.
The XML2 led was our flagship emitter around here for several years back about 5-6 years ago. It is still a really good led, not garbage by any means, it's just been surpassed by newer technology and newer iterations of led's.
