    Default "Fat Star" Octa 8x SST-90 Colossus Led Flashlight @ 18.000 lumens -more beamshots-

    Hello,

    instead of doing something serious with my money like going to Ibiza, I put some parts together,
    in the beginning there was this lathe and a piece of aluminium:


    ...later it looked like this, thanks to Piet from Frankfurt:


    ...and here are all the parts for the whole light together:



    ...the SST-90 emitters, connected together in series and glued to the
    massive heatsink for the modamag 4" Turbo Head:




    ...the modamag configurable battery adapter with 8x IMR18650 cells, I will use
    a stock Mag switch to power this light- not sure, what will happen in use...



    "Fat Star" Octa 8x SST-90 in 4" Colossus Turbo Head:




    "Fat Star" Octa 8x SST-90 Colossus Led Flashlight at about 18.000 Lumens, the whole light:




    This current I measured with 8x AW IMR18650 cells fresh from the charger, I wanted to get
    nothing more but 9amps for 8x 2250 lumens = 18.000 lumens, but I got this, my camera had
    some problems to take the photo, down left is the heatsink with the working SST-90 emitters.
    I hope some resistance will be added when the flashlight host and the switch will come
    in between and current will be reduced...

    Avenue with trees, light up by my car with 2x H7 on high:


    Same Avenue light up by the "Fat Star" (without help of carlights):

    Fat Star with new alu-reflectors:


    Beamshots with new reflectors:
    To have any comparison to the Ledil reflectors, I took new photos at the "Holiday Inn", controlshot:


    ...please excuse blurish quality, I could only take one beamshot, then some security from the hotel showed up and asked me "friendly" to leave...
    "Fat Star" with new reflectors:



    ...a street close to my home at night:


    ...same setup with Fat Star:


    ...and here is the video: FatStar

    Thank you for watching & best regards from Frankfurt,

    Steffen.

    Faint Re: "Fat Star" Octa 8x SST-90 Colossus Led Flashlight @ 18.000 lumens

    13A through that I'm guessing 18 gauge wire in the head?
    Loord...something will be red, just not the heatsink of the batteries [they are red to begin with ]

    At 12 minutes of runtime it won't heat up much I guess.

    What is its mass?

    ... Also waiting for beamshots.

    Fixed that for you.

    Holy nice build! I am curious, though, stock mag switch? 18G wires? Will they handle this?
    Is there a low beam, like 6000 lumens or something?

    Oh, and BEAMSHOTS!!!!

    Doesn't it feel good to be there, on top of that hill?

    This thing is begging for a photo like the publicity shot of the SR-90 being compared to a car's headlamps.

    Wow, a 400+ watt LED flashlight. That is awesome. Eat your heart out hotwire guys.

    Have you ever experimented with the IMS-27's or the Khatod-P7's? They are relatively inexpensive and light weight compared to the various McR-27's. I guess that must seem a little absurd worrying about throw on a 20,000+ lumen flashlight. But since you've gone way past the ordinary anyway.
