    Blackburn System X8 / X8SL - Difference?

    What is the difference between the Blackburn System X8 and the Blackburn System X8SL? I've looked all over the internet, including Blackburn's website, and haven't found an answer. Can someone help me out?

    Greatly appreciated!

    There may or may not be a difference; I have not compared the pdf data with Blackburn's web site to see a side-by-side between the 2. The SL may be the model sold outside the US (???).

    The answer...

    Ok... So I had a bit more time to research (and hold them side-by-side) and I think I have the answers. I'll go ahead and post them incase anyone has the same questions in the future:


    Blackburn X8
    Lamps: Luxeon LED (170 lumens)
    Battery: Li-Ion
    Run time: 2.5 hrs @ 100%
    10 hrs @ 30%
    Charge: 4 hrs
    Weight: 572g
    Comes w/ thumb switch
    Black w/ Red connectors

    Blackburn X8SL
    Lamps: Luxeon K2 LED (240 Lumens)
    Battery: Li-Ion
    Run time: 2.4 hrs @ 100%
    15 hrs @ 30%
    Charge: 4 hrs
    Weight: 504g
    No switchy switchy
    Black w/ Grey connectors


    Unless someone knows of something different I guess the SL is just the new and improved version of the X8.
