    Default Cree CXB3590 In A FLASHLIGHT!

    Hi all,


    This is a project I recently completed, hope you enjoy the show.

    In Him (Jesus Christ) was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

    That is nuts. Finally a comically large LED to match the proportions of the GT! One of the most unique and cool mods I've seen in a while.
    Hello darkness my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again...
    I liked neutral tints before they were cool.

    Ok. That was sick! I thought you were just joking when you said you were going to fit that led into that GT. WOW, just WOW!

    I would much rather have one of these than one of the current crop of multi-multi-multi-emitter lights that are so common, nicely done.

    Entertaining as always and good work. Interesting replacement, though it looks like it turns it from a thrower into a flooder.

    Yep. Pretty excited for the new light. It will be my brightest and I don't foresee ever needing something brighter.

    I get that question very often. That is also the reason I don't offer it The labor on this was horrifying. Just no quick way to reproduce it. For that reason (plus parts are high) the price would be like $900.

    Terrific and entertaining video review!

    I wonder how many people who purchase this put it to use for real-world tasks. First, it's absolutely huge and cumbersome to carry. Second, there are smaller lights that can provide sufficient illumination for the need (and of course, you could always double up and have the advantage of multiple projection points). The BLF GT feels like overkill, although it's certainly an impressive demonstration of what's possible. Would this be a candidate for a search team's HID light?

    EDIT: Sorry, I'm late to the game on understanding the BLF GT project... didn't realize how much BLF was influential on getting Lumintop to produce this. I expect that the nature of such a product wouldn't trigger a new BLF GT variant like this, as it wouldn't be profitable... plus, all the people who already bought the BLF GT wouldn't likely be ready to "upgrade."

    However, what I'm thinking of is... about some kind of "conversion kit" that could be made to then be installed by an owner (or by an experienced technician)? Would there be some way to do it without being "too expensive"?
