Years ago, a talented CPF member removed the Zebralight guts (by milling?) and placed it in a custom made flashlight; sounds too expensive in this application. A reliable Anduril flashlight with a killer-good switch seems like a better candidate than ZL.

Let me know exactly which LED you guys want me to order to test?


I am bout to break the damn glass on a Zebralight to put one in if I have to! I am just worried about hurting the reflector in the process hahahah

I want the 2700K since I will be using them mostly at night time. I know the Thrunite T1 is for sure 12V. I think all of the Thrunite XHP50 and likely XHP70 flashlights are 12V. So Thrunite TH30v2, T2, TC15v2, T1 should all be modable with the the B35AM. But I think Olights with these emitters would be much sexier because Olight drivers have the highest efficiency of all brands. The Olight Perun, Perun 2, Warrior 3, Baton Pro would be super sweet. Zebralights would be good too but their drivers aren't as efficient as Olight drivers. Please mod some. I will buy a few or a bunch with this emitter!

I found this pic in Hank's DM11 thread. The B35AM looks great.

This is the DUV measured for Eurekatronix's batch of B35AM. Seems only the 2700K is below the BBL. But if this is same as E21A, on higher current, they should all fall below BBL. But according to this test, the 2700K tint should be sweet.

Wow! What a beautiful demonstration of SFT-40's neutral temperature... I need to get me an SFT-40 light now! Makes me really want that MK38vn with SFT40s even more now haha.

Vinh, have you heard about these new Chinese made LEDs? Look at the lumen and intensity of the SFH55. Much higher than the XHP70.2. Almost approaching the SBT90.2 in intensity!

Someone posted this in the other forum:
I just bought a Mateminco MT35 Mini with SFS80 and tested it. I measured 7.2A from the tailcap. The light has 116k candela and 2148 lumens so it is very close to a SFT40. In fact, it seems to perform better than the SFT40 lights that I have.

The beam is pure white and even has a slight rosy tint. I like the beam better than my C8 with a W2 emitter since it is very even. The W2 is somewhat lopsided.
