I did the ceiling bounce tests on the blf gt lights.. I used olight sr96vn and mt18vn as a reference. Both lights are measured by TA calibrated tube lights.. here are the results..
blf gt vn 90 only hit 5338 lumen..
I am missing 3 BLF GT handles. If anyone got one that's not theirs please let me know.
GTvn V2 Recent Max Boost Recall (Only applies to those that sent in their V2 for the "Extra Boost"
I have bad news. The latest mods are not reliable. I thought the mods was great but it was because I was using an older set of VTC5A. With a brand new set of VTC5A there is an initial voltage spike on turbo that kills the LED. I killed one just couple days before. I also sent another customer a max boost version and his LED just died with a brand new set of VTC5A too. I know its such a hassle but I will need to turn down the boost to the original V2. Odd thing is not every sample wil die with max boost. I have no idea if the sample you have can withstand the extra current or not. I will have to play it safe and have you send me the head back so I can turn the boost back down. I am very sorry that this is the case but if the LED die its a world of trouble for me to fix. The LED itself is already $120. Please let me know if I can send you a USPS medium flat rate box label for the head return shipping.
Does this mean that the regular BLF GTvn90 V2 (2 Mcd) is completely safe with new VTC5A batteries? YES
It only affects the BLF GTvn90 V2 with the latest Mods (2.1 - 2.2 Mcd), right? YES
If so, we'll have to be satisfied with 2 Mcd, which already is much higher than practically any other flashlight one can buy. Thanks for understanding. Let me have some time to recover and will test these CFT90 soem more later. Trying my best to save as much as possible for Genesis project. haha
