    Does it come close to its claimed 80 lumens output? If thats a Q-3 next to it, i kind of has to doubt its anywhere NEAR 80 lumens... What is your opinion?

    I don't have anyway to measure lumens.

    Like you said I doubt it's anywhere near 80 lumens. All manufacturers usually exaggerate their claimed lumens output.

    Yes, thank you for the pics! I'm considering picking this light up purely for the circuity and bulb.....If it really can take 3-10V, that would be pretty sweet. Good to reuse for another project.

    Is the led easy to replace for premium bins?

    but the 80 lumen claim is especially exagerated considering Gransee measured a stock Q3 to be 23 lumens.

    BTW not all manufacturers exagerate, in fact a few under-reporting. But then again that goes into a whole otehr subject...

    Looks like you can take apart the reflector. The reflector is 2 pieces. I tried to take it apart but I was scared I might do some damage so I stopped. I may try again.

    The reflector looks like it might unscrew the same as The BOG modules. Heck, I think I paid the same amount for just my module! And that was before shipping!

    I hope it makes in the 50-60lumen range which is easily doable for a 2x 123A light. Is your Q3 modded at all? The FT-01 definitely looks like it has more throw.

    When I recently made some attempts to take beamshots, I noticed that it was very difficult to tell the relative brightness of my lights from the beamshots alone as lights that made 10lms looked almost as bright as ones that made 55lms. Can you do a ceiling bounce test to just visually check which looks brighter?

    I've been waiting to hear from Emilion about this, and my problem with my Jet1, but so far, no communication from him at all.

    My QIII is stock but it's running a Protected RCR123.

    Thanks for the tip! The reflector module unscrews.

    I don't suppose you have two protected RCR123 cells to run in the Ft-01?

    On the Hunt Light thread the input voltage of the FT01 is 3v~9v. Emilion says 3v-10v.

    I tried 2 Protected RCR123's not fully charged. One battery was 3.7V the other 3.6V a total of 7.3v.

    The 2 Protected RCR123's fit with no problems and the light works.

    why then the hesitation not to put 2xrcr123's in it? why not two topped off cells?

    I did not have any fully charged RCR123's at this time.

    I took out the batteries out of a couple lights to check the fit.

    I thought somebody might be interested in what the voltage of the batteries were.

    Might be expoxy. I can touch part of it with my finger nail, it's dried up.

    The board, ( driver ) located inside the aluminum housing.

    It's potted.

    I don't mind I have the older version, the FT-01 is still a very nice light and I am very happy for what I paid for the light.

    I really want this light, but so far neither Emilion nor Huntlight has responded to my email or PM, so I'm starting to give up.

    Huntlight/Danny/Andy - can you respond to my email or PM? Thanks.

    HI ernsanada,

    I got mine from Emili.
    I do not understand the way of two mode.
    A tail switch is an ordinary reverse switch. And it is not set to low mode even if it twists a tail cap.
    Please let me know whether it is set to low mode.

    How were the reflector and the LED unit separated? heat and unscrew?
