    The UI IS VERY intuitive. Everyone that I have let try my Narsil lights had them figured out and fell in love with them within 30 seconds. It is truly a thing of beauty that you can't understand until you try it.

    The carrier is setup to handle large amounts of power while being robust and inexpensive. Any moving parts will drastically increase costs and add possible reliability issues.

    Setting them up like this also means they can be switched to 1S or 2S cell setup very easily with just some oshpark PCB's, opening up the options for modding the light even more.

    Good design, in my opinion. The 1/4"-20 tripod mount makes mounting a handle easy--there are tons of shapes and sizes of still and video camera handles that will work. I think I might carve one out of wood, actually, just for this light. I was a long time lurker on BLF--this light motivated me to get an account so I could get one.

    No, one switch is enough. The BLF GT has NarsilM as Firmware. The UI is (today) the same as the BLF Q8 ( besides the ramp goes only to 2A and only double click brings you to 2.5A)

    You press the button and hold it, the lamp ramps. To reverse the direction, release the button and press and hold again (within 1.2 seconds).
    If you wait longer and you do the second press and hold later, e.g. 2 seconds, it will not reverse the direction.

    Be aware NarsilM is dangerous, after buying the Q8 I want all my lights with that interface.

    I am happy that the BLF GT is no use to me, to big, to much $$$, so no need to buy it.
    But that EDC lamp FW3A (also on BLF), I am doomed!

    Too much $$$? That is dirt cheap for a light of that form and performance.

    To the contrary, you have to remember which way it was going the last time you pressed it.
    Needs separate up & down switches.

    you said that right
    ive said that from the beginning
    this light is an absolute steal at what its going for
    it would be a steal at 200 bucks still..
    its not a HID i know, but getting in the same ball park as some, and surpassing some also
    go price a good quality hid, with a 5 inch reflector, then report back
    you cant buy the battery packs for what this light costs.. " nodoubt "

    Hi bondr006,

    We are not suppose to post external links here unless its to an approved store. All of the purchase information is pinned in the top comment in the youtube video though

    Not sure if serious, but those aren't new versions of the same emitter. They're more like siblings in the same family. The XHP35 is the smallest, most intense XHP-series emitter. The XHP50 is a bit larger but still somewhat "normal" sized, roughly equivalent to the XM-L2 in size, then the XHP70 is a big fat monster that makes the most output, but also has the least intense focus so its more suited for floody beam shapes. The XHP35 HI is most definitely the right choice for a light built as a thrower.

    ok but this led is like 5 years old. Isn't there any newer and more efficient one out there by now?

  24. #54

    Default Re: 1,290,000 CD Flashlight (non-aspherical)

    All the best-throwing LEDs are older LEDs. XHP35 HI, XPG2, and Oslon Black Flat are all older.

    It's actually the xhp50 and xhp70 that are outdated. Several months ago the xph50.2 and xhp70.2 were released. There isn't yet an xhp35.2 as far as I know. This light is using the same LED as the TN42 and it just about doubles the lux of that light. I had an original Olight SR90 and I remember it being around 125K lux and less lumens. I could pretty easily turn off street lights with that light. This is 10x the lux of the big Olight. I've got my paid order in already and look forward to this beast.
