Yes I believe so, but of course the SST-90 would get much warmer than the XM-L build shown in this thread. Not as much run time either at 9 Amps...9 Amp PT-54 Phlatlight Maglite Mod
Could the build above be modded to run an SST 90 for an even brighter 2D maglite?
I love to hear stories like that...I'm still super impressed with Jay's maglite build, I bought the assembled unit last winter and it continues to kick ass. we were doing some dry camping this spring on crown forested land and a couple Forestry officers tried to sneak into our camp, dog started barking and I snapped it on high and pointed it down the trail thinking a bear or something....lit up two officers trying to shield their eyes. they spent 5 minutes checking out our camp, and 20 minutes talking about my flashlight. :evil:
I don't have one, but one of the Candle Power Forum buyers made some comparisons with a few of his lights, and I believe an Olite SR90 may have been included: (read his two posts here)You don't by any chance have an olight SR90 to do a beamshot comparison?
I received my Jayrob 2x32650 XM-L light a few weeks ago and I’m very pleased. In this post, I’ll discuss my observations regarding throw with various reflectors/heads and comparisons to other lights I own. With a FM head, my Jayrob light is my best throwing, non-aspheric LED light.
Might want to just take a couple of minutes to read some of the buyer feedback.I need to go back to school on flashlights. Last time I was into lights, surefire was still teasing with 300 lumen lights.
Those are some extremely favorable comments. It does look like a super solid option. I was thinking of getting an sr90, that's why asked about it specifically, but it is a monster in terms of size.
I use a couple of different driver choices on the single cell 'stubby' build, but the most popular 2 cell build with voltage monitor is using only the one driver choice at this time...The idiot inside me who likes stupid bright things is wondering now...
If this light were made with an sst90 obviously it would get hot fast, likely only a few minutes at a time on high. Is it within the realm of possibility to have it go down to a lower mode, say a medium that's equivalent to the high of this light? Also are the drivers you are using limited to 3 modes only? With let's say for the sake of fantasy, a 1600 lumen light, even medium would still be extremely, overpoweringly bright for most applications, and even low of 200-400 is not really low...
I plan to take several trips between august and October and a killer light is definitely on my "must have" list. Your lights seem to be phenomenal throwers (based on the reviews I just too a minute to read) which is also a must for me.
by all means, I can't believe you aren't swamped with orders for them. the durability is impressive, I try not to be rough with it but it's dropped onto pavement, concrete, and ice more times than I care to remember and hasn't missed a beat. it's starting to look "seasoned"....I love it!I love to hear stories like that...
Probably add to my list of buyer feedback.
I think what makes it, is it's long run time and durability...
Not over driving the emitter, it should last a life time with normal use.
