    ....well it's a lesson learned, btw does anyone here uses the torch as an alternative light source for their photography? I have done a series with models..kinda fun, which led me to search for more powerful stuff...

    Becareful of using drop-in which produces alot of heat, G2 has a plastic body, bezel & tailcap heat can't dissapate from the drop-in, if a high powered LED drop is switch on for too long *poof*.....heat will kill the LED.

    custom-made metallic bezel-head will helps in G2 in dissipating the heat

    Surefire's incan bulb has pretty low tolerance for slight higher voltage common to even those "LiFE" rechargeables. If u like incan with rechargeables in Surefire then get 9V Xenon lamp assembly & use with 2x 3.6V/3.7V Li-ION (RCR123 fully charged ~ 4V, i.e. x2pcs ~ 8V, manageable for 9V Xenon L.A.)

    see u soon bro!

    i do. as long as the light produced is smooth enough. but iwould prefer not to shine a powerful light at a model's face, objects are fine btw.

    unfortunately i dun think the local community have the required apparatus to do an accurate test. i normally just bring a light which i am familiar with then request the shop to toss in some batts to do a comparison test. i personally do not need the specs down to absolute detail as real world application are quite dfferent from numbers on paper.

    stuff like beam profile & how 'clean' the beam is, tint, color rendition, how big the hotspot is, etc, are all taken in for consideration as to how useful the light output is.

    btw, the orange bulb is LED or incand?
