Using custom parts I've built this with the latest Osram LED and man does it perform well. Best throwing light for it's size in NZ for under the $200 range. I was hitting my neighbors hill 540m away and faintly picking out his pines at 650m according to Google Earth. This light is tiny with a head diameter of 44.5mm.
Maxtoch's newer models are using similar Osram leds but cost at least twice the price.
See last picture for the UI.
My Osram C8+ V1 is still a great choice, similar range, just a narrower beam which results in less lumens, but still the same brightness/intensity. I find many don't understand lumens very well and just go for the higher number which isn't always the best choice.
Higher lumens = more heat resulting in shorter bursts, less runtime
Note: These leds are tiny which makes them extremely hard to center 100%. You may notice on a white wall but not out in the field

Important: You mustn't use an 18650 battery that has a greater than 15A discharge rating, by doing so you'll void the warranty as it can push the LED too hard. I recommend the Samsung INR18650-30Q.
If using as a handheld you can grab the flat top battery version or if mounting on a gun use the button top version, this is to stop the spring denting in the flat top by the recoil.
- 100%: 24 min (limited to 2 min bursts due to heat)
- 30%: 2 hrs 20 min
Infinite brightness so the 1st and 2nd levels can be configured to any value. At 30% this Osram C8+ V2 is outshining the Convoy C8+ models, very impressive.
