    Finally, a picture of my BOSS 70 next to a couple of other lights:-

    Easyled, how long can the BOSS run on highest output compared to the bigger cooling heads?

    Also, I'd love to know how long at say 500lm and 1000lm before it gets too hot.

    I'm afraid I can't answer that, but its not a like-for-like situation anyway. The bigger cooling heads have P60 drop-ins that are not the V5-triple that Oveready uses in the BOSS. As P60 drop-ins they are looser which would mean that there is probably some insulating air that counteracts the conduction between the heat-sink of the P60 drop-in and the heads of the lights that they are in. The BOSS V5 driver is press-fit into the BOSS head but no doubt very tightly.

    I can't answer your question though because I haven't pushed any of the lights at their highest outputs for any length, being more of a collector, armchair fan and oldboy!! Nor do I really want to for fear of jeopardizing the led-life or battery life.

    At the highest level of 3,500 lumens output though for the BOSS, which is way higher than the other two lights, this output will drop very rapidly and this is shown in the runtime graphs on the OVEREADY website link in the BOSS section.

    I have set my BOSS's highest level to 31 instead of 33 which still provides 2,500 lumens output and hopefully it won't drop quite as quickly at this level.

    As, above, I haven't and probably won't test my BOSS to be able to answer you properly. However my third level is set at about 450 lumens and the head seems to stay relatively cool for a long time at this level.

    nice photo.

    I have a TI lanyard ring from my hds that also fit my BOSS... in case of...

    What is your favorite detail on this flashlight ?

    Mine is the mirror finish of the aluminium around the board. It make a illusion that the inside of the light looks wider than the outside. I found it to be a cool effect.

    I wouldn't call it a favorite detail, but I like picking up the BOSS when its been in my bedside drawer all night, and it's really cold. I've never noticed any of my other lights being so cold.

    Never point a flashlight at anything you don't intend to illuminate! Never buy a flashlight you have to make payments on.

    looks like that BOSS is wearing a collar with a tie.
    The best way to predict the future is to create it.

    How about an extender for the BOSS 35 that would enable another 18350 to be addes into the mix to take advantage of the light's full potential? Then the extender could have delrin end caps to serve as a spare battery holder?

    So, the 35 could be carried with a spare and transform into the 70 when necessary without having to carry an extra 'tail'.

    Just thinking out loud hehe

    I had figured you could get the 70, and slip two 350's in it. That is how I run my SF Executive Triple from OR. It is a mega wall of light! Gets hot fast, but man is it amazing. I would assume they will fit. But I like your idea of a optional storage "section" too. But, I think reading their theory behind the BOSS, they plan to keep it simple as far as options. In order to seed up production, and not confuse customers.

    Flieger does look nice. Love his designs.

    On a side note: is still love to hear about who is happy with either amber or red in their choice.

    Still enjoying the amber.

    I keep it on my beer so I can find it if the power goes out.

    After buying 2 V5 E1e's with Red secondary, I bought my BOSS with Amber & prefer it for the slight increase in brightness. It may
    be that since I have other lights with Red-this also is a bit of "new thing syndrome" I'm pretty pleased with this light, the tint is
    very nice, it weighs so little (35 version) and is very bright with just one 18350.
