    Wow! That's an improvement over the old W2 which was 1100 lumens & 260 kcd. Great work Vinh. Always marching forward!

    When I see a P60 triple W2.1 drop-in on Vinh's web site, I'll send my SLN single reflector flashlight in for a major upgrade!

    I am already happy with my SLN Lil Vortex and SLN Quad W2.
    Modded: 2 REV-Victor Enth * 2 DEFT-X's * 3 BLF GTvn90 * 2 TN42vn90 * TN42vn Oslon * RC40vn40 * X65vn * Tmack: c11(638nm 957mw * 405nm 1w * v2 445nm 2.83w) * Cypreus (405nm 1w * 445nm 2.72w) * Tmag super (445nm 5.6w * 445nm 3.2w * 520nm 1.5w)

    There will be an all new Triple W2.1 P60vn with modified optics for Max focus and OTF lumen. If done right it should give the best beam and performance ever. Tough to build but will be worth it!!!

    I'll definitely be upgrading my SLN with one of these as soon as it's available!

    I jut went outside at 3:30pm to measure direct sunlight and got CCT 5030K, DUV 0.0031, CRI 99.6, R9 98.3, R12 98.7, Rf 98, Rg 99
    This might be useful for those who want to mimic afternoon sun.

    G25C2vn SST40 HD 6500K
    2000L, 60Kcd, 490m

    G25C2vn White2 5400K
    950L, 130Kcd, 721m

    G25C2vn SBT90 G2 5700K
    3500L 120Kcd, 693m

    This SBT90 G2 is making everything it fits in obsolete before it. It's basically a CFT90 that was $125 that can fit in smaller lights.

    It heats up super fast and draws a shit ton of power. 3500 lumens doesn't seem as extreme as 5000 with regards to those though.

    I really want an SBT90.2 setup for a rifle light, but I need to find a host that has adequate shock isolation for both the drop in and the battery.

    Pretty sure my wife ordered me a W2.1 triple drop in for Valentine's Day, so I'm pretty excited about that! Would it be worth ordering copper foil (without adhesive!) to wrap it in? I have aluminum, but we use the Reynolds heavy duty, so it's on the thick side.

    I know, right!? I've been blessed with a wife that is not only fine with me buying lights and other gear, she also buys them for me as gifts, and best of all, she sometimes wants flashlights, knives and guns as gifts for her from me. She has a few V54 lights herself. The only downside is that I really need to practice financial discipline, as overspending on all the fun stuff is a much more real danger!

    Yep, it's a bit like an ultra magnum version of a PreonVN. It gets hot really fast, output drops off quickly and doesn't have a lot of runtime... but when you first turn it on or use it in short bursts, it's really impressive!

    G25C2vn SBT90 G2 5700K 3500L 120Kcd, 693m (39.5mm head)

    MT07vn White 2 5400K Max Turn On Perf: 7700L, 115Kcd, 678m (44mm head)

    D4Svn White2 5400K Supercharged 5000L, 118Kcd, 697m (39mm head)


    It's really fascinating to see how these various sized heads, reflectors and optics compare.

    I've been switching between my G25C2vn White 2mm and my SLN now loaded with a P60vn SST-40 as my EDC. Both are surprisingly easy to carry in pocket all day. The G25 is a bit tougher to get in and out of pocket, but damn do I love this light- granted an OG G25C2 was my first real light so I'm slightly biased. With VN4 and a White 2mm emitter it's about perfect for the kind of light it is.

    HAD to order that SBT90 version to compare to my White 2 version. I suspect it will be stellar, I wonder what I will use more..... Very curios to see what kind of sustainable outputs are like in this setup. I'll definitely post my thoughts.

    Patriot, that's a VERY interesting list to ponder indeed, well spotted! Most curios to those lights stats at 30 seconds and around 2 minutes....

    Stayed up late and broke a X80 CRI last night. Darn it! There goes a ton of money :-(

    OUCH

    What happened to it exactly? Just fiddling with it? I never really understood why they had red LEDs around the COB. Only thing that stopped me from entertaining one.

    The Red LEDs were 3V so I thought putting in SST40 SD would be OK but guess not. Light just went poof.

    Is there anything that can be salvaged from it or can you replace the driver with VNX2?

    I thought I saw a big flash over the horizon. I passed it off as Northern Lights, LOL.

    I will just convert it into a lantern or a mule and use it when I go out to collect well water at night.

    Well for us "older folks" as you recently put it, I've had the procedure twice so far, with the world's most enthusiastic doctor! He's really quite the boisterous and funny fellow.
