I tried it, it has the strength but I was disappointed with the color, because its is converted gree it is quite light green tint, almost looks like yellow. Cree XPE has much nicer tint, darker green, more intensive, but lacks in strenght significantly.
I also have Osram blue flat, 1x1 die, but did not test it in the flashlight.

Stuck one in a Jax with a 5amp driver just for curiosity…. not the best image but gives you an idea… thumbs down from me green light on green background next to useless past a hundred meters. ill be sticking with white.

Are you kidding? That looks great! You gotta to use that with riflescope or binoculars and then you’ll see :wink:

The beam in your Jax is awesome, the color though … :confounded:

Looks like typical Cree tint. :laughing:

I just put a Oslon Boost HX HL in my GT Micro.

What a great thrower!

It appears you have the HX and HL confused. Nice mod though! Mini throwers are a favorite of mine…

I see that Boost HL appeared on the Osram site finally:

YES i feel one coming on also :+1:

so where can you buy the HX on a 16 mm ??

Nowehere so far. :frowning:
There was a mention of them being sold on some Asian flashlight forum.
L4P has samples but not on sale yet.
Vinh has some but not on sale either.

Where can I buy this? Oslon Boost HL

I’m a store and wanting to offer a few custom built C8’s

Which driver is best suited?


Is this the same


Almost, it is the same die in a smaller 3030 package, the boost hl is a 4040 package and handles a little more current and output.

Green emitter seems nice for faking an alien invasion

Some days ago I showed that I modded an Eagle X3R here, with a Osram White Flat (W1) led!

Now, here are some photos of the beam!
It reaches 400m without problems, even if the centering is not 100% perfect! :wink:

This is a very nice host for these throwy Leds, despite all !






Comparison with:
Convoy S2+ (XP-L HI, SMO) >>>> X3R (Osram W1, SMO) >>>> FW1A (XP-L HI, OP)

What are the internal reflector dimensions of the x3r? Awesome beamshots btw!

Thanks :wink: It was a good and “clear” night to take them, so it helped :wink:

About the reflector:
bottom hole - 7mm
top hole - ~25mm (approximately, I didn’t take it out again because as the reflector and bezel are screwed together, the Led would get de-focused again)
height - ~25mm as well (measured from the outside based on the level of the shelf and the top, below the thick lens and thick o-ring).

The bigger inconvenient of this light is the bezel and reflector screwing together, as it leads to some move on the gasket and MCPCB.

Despite this…it throws pretty well, more than the previous configuration on a Convoy S2 w/ SMO reflector :wink:

Thanks for taking those measurements. You should be seeing around 100kcd then, give or take. I’m curious as I’m about to put an WF1 in a Convoy M2. These two seem to be virtually the same in reflector dimensions. Crazy how well these Osrams throw! I have one in a Jacob A60, and see around 240kcd. That’s a heck of a range for something so lightweight and cool-running.

Can someone tell me why mtnelectronics W1 rate it at at 4A max?.

I’ve ordered 3 hosts (C8+, M21C, L21A) to build hunting lights to sell and need advice to make them properly.

I see on here the max is 5A for the W1, please confirm.

I’m currently using Convoy’s 17mm Temp Driver rated at 5A but measured at 4.3A (ideal for the C8+). I purchased the led’s at kaidomain, I’m guessing these are the same? I’m just confirming the max safe current as the lights will be for sale and I’ll be giving a 2 year warranty.

I get 750 lumens with 850m throw with the C8+, that’s impressive.

These will be the furthest throwing lights in NZ for the price, I should get some good sales from hunters.

I’m also interested in another driver that’s better optimized for the white flat in terms of mode spacing. The Convoy driver I’m currently using has a High of 1A and Turbo 4.3A, that’s quite a jump. I’d prefer another level in between.

Any advice is appreciated
