    I don't think he's sold any yet. The email said it would start next week.

    Well since the dog is out of the yard so to speak no need to keep it a secret any longer. I have s/n 002 coming to me for review. It was partially my idea to take the new XP-G and put it into a deeper reflector that would fit into the Wildcat sized head and make a dedicated Malkoff thrower type flashlight. Same hi/low twist head capabilities, you can make it work on MD2 through MD4 size hosts, all the way up to 12V. This thing is going to be sweet.

    MrGman,

    You lucky dog

    What is the XP-G being driven at?

    In know the tripple wildcat drives them at 900mA and the M61 at 1A, but what about this super thrower?

    I think its 1.2A~1.4A

    MrGman,

    You and Malkoff really make it impossible to keep every promise to reduce the flashlight purchases!

    I just got off the phone with Gene. He'll be signing in after a while with more info about the light, but he told me the reflector is a slightly modified version of the 38mm reflector in the new Makai, and the light is driven at ~1488ma on high.

    Thanks Donn,

    Thats what I been waiting for. A high quality XP-G light that isn't afraid to drive those XP-G's hard at almost 1.5A. Now; with Gene's heatsinking I predict these will be awesome throwers for us Malkoff Junkies.

    I can attest to the strength of this combination of parts. This light:



    Has an McR38 reflector and an R5 XP-G being driven by a GDuP with a 1.6A high. It's a scorcher!

    Donn,

    When you say its a modified version of the McR38 reflector what do you mean?

    Modified to fit the Malkoff design?

    Or

    Modified to give more throw?

    Thanks,

    The reflector in the Makai is a modified McR38..modified to properly focus the XP-G. Gene's reflector is further modified to fit the Hound Dog.

    Now THAT's a UI a man can love! Low, High period. No blinkie modes! If this out throws my G5 I'll be so sad I didn't know it was coming.

    Yes, in a perfect world I would much rather be able to choose my own host. Heck, if the XP-G were a pill I could screw out and replace with other pills even better.

    Malkoff and Surefire heads/bodies are not compatible.

    I'd love to see it SF E-series compatible just like the Malkoff Valiant Concepts VME Head that he sells. I have one on an E2E that I like a lot.

    Very tempting, I will gander this light will sell out FAST!

    Default Re: Malkoff "Hound Dog" coming soon!

    The reflector was fine tuned to give this great throw with no wrinkles in the beam. The head will fit the existing MD series bodies. It will have the twist hi/low feature built into the head already. I believe eventually Gene will sell the head separately. So its a great compliment to the already existing MD series lego components. The beam is much tighter and stronger than the XP-G drop in for the Maglite series, but with good spill.

    I will of course have to make a video.

    This may be my first malkoff....but by the time I wait for reviews with lux numbers it will be sold out forever. I'm hoping for 25,000 lux at 1 m. If less I probably wouldn't notice the difference with my G5.

    The input voltage is 5 to 12 volts. It can use two to four CR123 lithium batteries or two to three rechargeable lithium ion batteries (use protected cells only). The current draw is approximately 1 Amp at 6v and 750ma at 9v.

    I know Gene likes to chime in here, so this is a question for you... (or someone else that knows definitively).
    I'm looking at the MD3 body option for mine, so that I can run two 18500s or 3 RCR123s, you say it can run on 3 Rechargeable Li-Ions above, at full top off that'll come to 12.6V... Is that still safe for the Light as the voltage range is 5-12V? Don't wanna fry it

    Cheers.

    The instant the load hit's it, that 12.6V will fall to well below 12V.
