Re: NEW 26650 Super Thrower :) BTU STR01

Check out this New offering from BTU. The BTU STR01 the 26650 super thrower iv been waiting for. Its only $55 stock so this modded should still be pretty affordable. im sure some wont like the style but i really like it. Heatsinking could be insanely good if vinh can mod this

To each his own but I think it is hideous. I would like to see Vinh mod the Maxtoch M12 1x26650.

Re: NEW 26650 Super Thrower :) BTU STR01

TOM E tryed to mod that and he did not get the best results. The stock pad is not direct path and even when he made it direct path he did not get the amps he was hoping for. There was a lot of lumen sag meaning heatsinking was not the best. It was a bummer reading that as i like that host

Looks Heavy might need to put a wheel on it--HaHa

yes it looks strange but the design has a lot of surface area for amazing heat dissipation. plus all the holes for air flow. I think it has a lot of potential for amazing performance. i asked vinh about it and he said budget lights quality scare him. he said its ugly but he will think about it

5500/3= 1833 Lumen Per LED. Are you sure?

I think I will purchase a Maxtoch M12 at some point and send it to Vinh. If I remember right, Tom E was modding the stock driver. I would have Vinh completely replace the driver and also start with a direct to copper board with a PDTw XM-L2.

That is what Tom E numbers were. He said this is the brightest shocker he has built. It's actually 5440 lumens at start and 5114 at 30 sec. And 265 kcd. I had him keep the domes on for this light also for max lumens. This was tested with 20 Q's, even less performance vs 20rs.

It looks like it can throw a whole lot with its funky lookin design. If your gonna bust this light out from your holster, I sure hope it does haha. On the bright side, I bet u can run it on turbo forever though.

Looks like a mace or some kind of hammer. Might get arrested waking around with that. All kidding aside, form follows function and theres a certain curious attraction here.
