You have to email Alan of dereelight. Don't go through the website ordering...
Seriously with most stores like CNQG, int-outdoors, HKE, i don't go through the website ordering process. I PP direct and then email transaction code. And with that I ALWAYS get discounts. Don't even go through Ebay.
For me the Dereelight DBS aspheric is a "budget" light. Get a HS-802 for 27 bucks and it does low 30k cd. This one is 79.8 and does 90k cd (don't know how Saabluster got 107k though). You also get a thicker body/tailcap, better threads/cutting, HA, no PWM as "FOC". Saabluster said he could get it past 200k cd, but won't be doing it as a commercial option. He mentioned that Alan/Dereelight is severely underselling his lights.
Dereelight usually ships the same day they get PP (esp before 12 noon), plus its from HK and my stuff usually gets here before 2 weeks.
And definitely not DX speed. LOL!
Next would be the Lambda XM-L turbo. I hope it would be below $150. LOL! It outthrows even the Olight SR90. I do not think any of the modders here can do direct LED to copper bonding. It's not easy to squeeze out the last drop.
I also went the easy way though, nearly 2,000k cd and usd150. But 7" diameter and heavy as hell (think it's 4kg)
It makes it more interesting to me now, I`ve got already the CNQG clone and before this post (even before buying it) I was wondering how to make a zooming from it like YEZL T9 but with twice the runtime.
I will check how easy would be to make it flood to throw as it is my idea about it.
2100, sorry for being a pain in that place under your back.
Would you let me know how clear is the die drawn on the wall, is it blurry on the edges?
Would you let me know the die size shown on the wall at 1 metre distance?
I’d also be interested in the question above. Is it focused to throw the die shape? My Tiablo A9 and fake a9 both throw the die shape (with an o ring between aspheric head and body). I have it setup with perfect focus of the emmiter at about 7 metres.
Have you used an A9?
AutoTech, the o-rings around the die, might be due to the head design too, they do not always come from the lens itself, or they can come even from the pill if it is aluminium or other not painted bright metal.
I found it with one flashlight and other with same diameter, placing the same lens on both made reflections adding o-rings on the beam, and found it was due to the pill in that case.
The lens is 94.73 exterior 95.03… SST normal Lux was 166,000 now it has been de-domed and pushing 202,000 Lux… Is running low amps Wayne is safe at 2.25 per cell… I’m going to push them to 11to 12 amps total…
