Round II of battle for compact King of the Woods.
(See original thread of battle in the woods I here:
Since this is for battle of the compacts, I didn't want to bring in anything bigger than FF1. For the size, SR51 is the best LED thrower & is nearly identical shape & size as FF1. My SR51 scored 56,000 Lux@ 1 meter, more than CPF reviewed 40Klux & a German flashlight forum reviewed 50K lux. This is a super performer.
Amazingly, the throw is from an OP reflector, making the spot much bigger & thus more useful in the woods than small spot led throwers.
2. Firefox 1:
Still World's smallest 35W HID, This is the ringing champion from battle in the woods I. This is from small custom run in 2009 before Firefox turned into a business & made much bigger FF2.
More details of this light here: http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/...5W-amp-40W-HID
3. Firefox 3:
World's smallest 40W HID, only available in China & the latest masterpiece from fire-fox creator shinetop.
This is insanely small for full power HID, I didn't think it's possible to make a full power HID smaller than FF1, Shinetop did it again. Custom ballast is wrapped around the reflector & thus takes no room , the height is pretty much reflector/bulb sitting on top of 4x18650 battery rack.
FF1 & SR51 fit perfectly in SR51 Box:
Opening the box of FF 3, the feeling is unreal!
