    Almost 13k!!
    Maybe you could do a comparison to the TN40vn someday? I'm super curious how the beams compare. If both are fed with VTC5A, they should look pretty similar?

    If memory serves, Vinh did a comparison video including TN40vn & X65vn. It was a year ago or so, found here at 2:48 minutes ...

    The beams are very similar, with the X65vn being stronger of course.

    ANSI 10000 to 11000 lumen for x65vn.

    I am thinking about ganging up both of them, so I can hold two in one hand, and have the other hand free for other stuff.

    Yes. Or maybe ganging up two 1911s in one hand. No, wait.... just drop a .460 Rowland into one 1911.

    Vinh,

    A flashlight with 3 or 4 CFT-90 LEDs would certainly replace the X65vn (which I have), although it would be more expensive.

    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.

    Multi CFT90 is just too much money...

    How about olight sr95? If you get anything over 4000 lumen and 300k lux, then it will worth the mod.

    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 itís competitors? Is it still relevant or are these numbers shabby, starting to show their age compared to the current heavy hitters?

    Would this be your smallest CFT90 build other than copper S12 that you made recently?

    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!
