I've known that head structure(size) is quite an important factor to the flashlight's beam profile through Fenix TK50 & this monster.
Review: SkyRay STL-V2 XM-L T6 3 or 5 modes adjustable
Candle lamp, your graph is wrong. It should be times 2, think you used 1-cell voltage instead of 2-cell. XM-L is basically a 10-watter.
Yes i should have mentioned that the voltage x 2 because i used two cells on both lights.
Yes, Y-axis values should double.
2X18650 is correct and I've forgotten! It's my mistake.
Just fixed now.
I just received the Fandyfire version of this light and after close inspection of your photos I can say it is exactly the same flashlight with two mode groups(only a few $ less expensive)
A crazy bright trower (can almost compare with my 35w pob HID)
That's good, PHEW.... glad it is working and exactly the same thing OEM, just rebranded.
I purchased the same one from DX, should be arriving soon one of these days.
But remember, this is the first "batch/version".
pipopopo, does yours use screws to hold down the white pcb?
Back when we were talking about doing a shootout between the 980L and a number of other lights and i had the X8, i thought yeah the X8 can probably keep up and maybe do better. The STLV2 in my opinion blows them all away. I know theyre all different configurations but just looking at sheer brightness.
Mine is still going without any hiccups. never really knew the meaning of regulation until i did my own test of both the X8 and the STLV2 and im quite impressed. Both lights are keepers.
Yes it does; why?
someone received one that had no screws just thermal compound.
Does anyone know if this lights throws better than an M3X or M3C4 XML?
it probably does, but will tell you when i get this here, i have already here a m3c4 xm-l.
Hey, i thought your M3X is 59k? BTW the Fandyfire STL-V6 glass cuts 5.6% of the light. :)
The triple M3C4 should be very close to this by figures. But seriously unless you A-B the lights very very carefully, such small differences cannot be detected. And if it is less than 5% probably A-B also cannot detect!
Is it HAIII?
Technically, no. But by finishing quality, yes. The finish is very close to my Dereelight so-called "Type III" or hard anodized as you mentioned.
I just compared my recently acquired STLV2 against the X8 & 980L and I totally agree with you, it blows them all away. Throws much better, has a larger hot spot, *very* bright and the tint is pure white compared to the 980L.
I do like them all, so they are all keepers in their own right. Anyone considering these, you can't go wrong, very nice lights for the $$ :).
This just seems like a great product. I don't see all the negative comments that came with the Sky*Ray 3xT6 and it appears to be outperforming already tested and commendable lights.
@2100, yes, my M3X does so, but to be sure if Fandyfire outperforms the M3C4 xm-l and how does it compare against the M3X i have to put them all on the same luxmeter to be sure :) and check out all these technical matters(glass,leds, amp on the led, reflectors etc)
Just got the Fandyfire, clone of the clone skyray. Quality against M3X is worser, but it is still quite good!
As for performance, i am measuring about 48200 lux, not like the 59000 i got from olight, but still quite a good number, better than thrunite catapult!
THe OTF is 690 lumen, olight is 770 OTF.
Overall, it is a very good bang for buck for sure!
Yep, the Fandyfire is good huh?
