BOSS70; 219C emitters

My chosen configuration is 1x18650; 'Bounce' is set to 83
  1. Level 28: 17 watts, 1550lm, 30mins runtime
  2. Level 22: 4 watts, 385lm, 5hrs runtime
  3. Level 14: 0.18 watts, 16lm, ~4 days runtime
  4. Level 1: 0.0015 watts, 0.14lm, unknown runtime
I tried out a 2x18350 program series, but decided against it - just didn't like the runtime penalties vs. 1x18650.

So the only other configuration I have any interest in is 2xCR123:

(Which actually makes good sense for an emergency backup - I have very few IMR18350's, but many CR123's - and the BOSS would be the most efficient use of them).
  1. Level 25: 8.8 watts, 800lm
  2. Level 20: 2 watts, 190lm
  3. Level 14: 0.18 watts, 16lm
  4. Level 1: 0.0015 watts, 0.14lm
Runtimes are all unknown for the above; if anybody has any estimates, please feel free. :)

I sold my Wasp last year, but I just looked up my last program on Lux-RC.

XP-L 4500K, Red secondary

! cell
Level 26

2 cell
Level 26, 26, 26, Afterburner

No memory
No bounce

That's a lot of light for a confirmed HDS user, plus I obviously have a much simpler mind than you guys.

Single cell: Settings 10 (0.1% or 36 mW), 20 (7% or 2W), 31 (74% or 23W) and 10 Hz Strobe.

Two cells: Settings 10, 20, Afterburner (100% or 30W) and 10 Hz Strobe.

I really only use one cell. LOVE this light and EDC it. 10 is great for navigating around the house in the dark. 20 does most everything I need and once in a while I want to light up what I'm looking at (this is always at a distance).

I have had mine for less than a year so I’m still experimenting a little. It’s a high intensity with amber. This is what I’m currently settled in on.

1. level 4 for now I’ll probably back it down to 2 or 3 during the winter
2. level 14
3. level 21
4. level 27 single cell, level 25 for two cr123’s and 33 for two 18350’s.
Hybrid memory
Bounce 85
Protection on
Stretch off

My typical carry this time of year is one 18350. I’ll switch back to an 18650e when the sunrise is later.

I don’t want to hijack the thread but what optics are you using? I have tried them all and I seem to be torn between MF & NF. WF is just too much splash and I can understand why NC is the most popular.
