No doubt there must be a heck of an output curve for this cell but those lumens from this light are crazy! The W2.1 is maybe 800-900L at best.

The GT Micro should be even more impressive with those 10A and 12A cells but bigger, of course. I remember when Vinh posted a picture of these two lights together and the size differences was dramatic.

Cramping a SBT90 is a AA light is sort of a feat ;-)

Haha!! Wow, that is tight. Looks like you had to round the corners. It's amazing that you've even been able to do it. Another SkyLumen 'first' I would assume.

Ok guys, i fired off an email to Vinh. I should hear back soon, I listed the following lights:

Surefire fury dft
Eagletac g25c2 mk2
Acebeam L16
Warrior x pro

Im leaning toward warrior x pro camo version and told him i wanted sbt90 g2 with the most powerful cell which i believe is a samdung 40t. likely dedome since it seems most beneficial for wow factor vs delens. 85% throw 15% flood. Target is 145+ kcd 4200+ lumen. My favorite type of light is a crazy powerful single cell thrower in small package.

Is the 40t the most powerful cell for a single cell light?

Aldo why are so many of you opting for delens? From what i understand dedome will create more throw wont it?

Will post beamshots when its here.

Ike, the Acebeam with DeLens is closest to your "target" numbers however, all of the lights you mentioned will be excellent, so it comes down to preference.

There is no dome on the SBT90 and instead of a dome, it uses a glass cover. Deleting the glass cover is what we're referring to as the DeLens option, not to be confused with a flashlight without a front window/lens. Yes, it will be a little brighter and provide a little more throw.

Well... that thing is just awesome.:faint: Nice chunk of copper in this one.

About the same lumen output as the 50.2 but double the throw. That's really something special. Must be expensive too!

Damn that's crazy. Would be nice if there was a smooth reflector version.

An SBT90 in an AA is like putting a 500 HP engine in a VW Beetle! LOL

I cant find the shockli for sale anywhere

HKJ just published his test results for the Vapcell 14500 H10. Using his comparator, it appears to be the same cell as the Shockli 12A Orange cell. Wondering when you will test one with a Micro GT SBT90.2 :grin2:

I believe thats my baby Vinh just posted. Beyond impressed eith this light, absolute monster in a tiny package. Thank you vinh.

I went with the olight warrior x pro modded by vinh with sbt90, polished bezel and modded samsung 40t 21700's. Someone said the Xvn only had 2 modes, it came with instructions; fast clicking tailcap 8 times brings you into the mode selection menu, I wanted mode 12: 100,-90-70-50-30-10-5(something like that) and double click for strobe. The light remembers the last setting so i always keep it set to 100. Ui is exceptional as is build quality. The light has some sort of glowing chemical around the front that turns green when the light comes on. Added bonus it can be used to jab someone in the face if necessary as it has one of those delf defense style rings around the front-the things with the spikes typically although this time they are subtle.

My main qualifications were:

1. Absolutely brutally bright. My friend accidentally shined it in my eye for a second, I had a burn spot in my vision for more than 10 minutes. It eventually went away but I was terrified I might have permanent dsmage. This this is devastatingly bright, if a bad guy takes this thing to the face on 100 with eyes open, hes essentially out of the fight. My most important qualification has been far exceeded, extremely blinding light is my most important qualification in a self defense light.

2. My next requirement was that it must be a tail clicker.

3. My final requirement was that it he pocketable and it is.

This light coming out of this thing will burn your hand in just a few seconds if you put your hand on it with 100.

Highly recommend Xvn to everyone looking for a brutally bright pocketable edc eith self defense aspects to it and a ton of modes to choose from. I really think the way this thing focuses the beam(small intense hot spot, massive throw 135-145ish kcd, 4100-4300 lumen. These are my estimates) really contributes to how blinding it is. All that intensity is focused right into your eyes if you hit someone in the face with it. That being said, it gets very hot very fast which isnt a problem for me, i just want max blinding power and massive throw in a dmall package. Mission accomplished. Beamshots soon.

I showed this absolutely tiny guy to my fully uninterested girlfriend and even she was aghast at how much light it puts out - "like science fiction." If you were looking for a coversation piece show-off light this would do it. Pardon the crappy cell shots:
