I'm not even sure 8 18650 could adequately power 4 CFT90s, or there wouldn't be enough space in the host to fit 4 drivers to power 4 CFT90s. But it would be interesting to find out.

Tn40svn with 4 cft90s would be compact insanity!

how big is a cft90 and driver? Can one fit in a c8? Lol
but it is a serious question. I would consider one.

I will wait patiently.

How many similar size non-overlapping XHP35 reflector wells will fit in the head of the BLF GT?


Two X65vn: They still rock.

With some quick calculations :

It can fit for sure 4*C8 reflectors (40mm) , or slightly bigger (43mm) . With 4* cft-90 someone would get approx. 700-800kcd (minimum ,max up to 1.2mcd) and 18-20k lumens , at 20A each led .

Is still the best quality, high output thrower, under $500 in mid-2019? What are it’s competitors? Is it still relevant or are these numbers shabby, starting to show their age compared to the current heavy hitters?

As far as I know:

1. Yes.
2. Beam profile/performance: None.
3a. Yes.
3b. No.

Vinh, if I am wrong, that is, if there is another light that has a combination of both significantly more throw and more lumens, let me know!

Until then, one X65vn in one hand, and another X65vn in my other hand, outer limits of LED flashlight performance!
