Jaxman flashlights

Browsing for Nichia UV leds I came across this Jaxman flashlight, a new brand to me but good and quality looking. Are they related to the already known 'Jax' brand? They seem to be keen using recent and quality leds. There's not many models though (yet?).

This Jaxman U1 used to come with a chinese 365nm led (at hkequipment.net it is for sale with no mention of Nichia), but now it is also available with a Nichia 276A U365. The price is not bad: $60 on Aliexpress. It even has a visible light blocking filter, nice!, necessary when the chinese led was used, but even for the Nichia it will help blocking the small amount of visible light.

They also do high CRI Nichia 219B lights (in the picture a 219C is even visible, but in the text and in the flashlight is a 219B shown) for 16 dollar;

and a 'mini C8' with 219B for $25:

I have noticed this for a while, and yeah they can rival the Convoy brand IMO.

What is even more amazing about Jaxman is that they seems to have employed DTP copper board in their lights already.

Is the Mini-C8 better than the Convoy M1/M2?

In what ways?

Thank you,

That is a nice new model with lots of good features and easy to mod, I like it a lot! Only length-wise it disappoints: only 4.6mm shorter than an S2+, with the TIR-set-up they could have gone shorter than that, at least another 5mm.

The 2.1A driver made me giggle a little too.
But then I remembered that it will give you the stated 900 lumens, which is enough for 99% of customers.
The remaining 1% will drop a FET driver in it for a couple bucks more and maybe swap emitters.
What I see is a good host, the first one in a tube shape that is dedicated to triple.
So maybe I’ll bite Smile

yep, the 4mm thick ledboard shelf and even some finning in the head makes it a pretty good candidate for at least a 2000 lumen mod. I may bite too Innocent

Sorry for a newb question, but what is the advantage of having 3 LEDs instead of one in this E2 light? Less heat?

Maybe Jaxman can release a BLF edition which actually harnesses the power of triple LEDs Evil

LEDs are considerably more efficient at low power, so yeah, less heat, longer runtime or more light.

Looking for:

5” parabolic reflector (for recoil light)

I think i’ll order one next paycheck. Smile

Could use some typical 18650-tube-triple improvements though:

Not very well centred and quite a bit shrouded by the bezel.
So the bezel needs a Dremel session and some sheet material inside the head will centre it.
The driver is apparently multi 7135 so we could stack a bunch of them. Smile
The XP-G2s will have to go too.

Sadly Jaxman just devalued all my S2 and S2+ triples.

We all need to email them and demand the High CRI Nichia version E2L Triple.

I have received my Nichia E2 a few weeks ago. Nice light but had to swap out the driver. Used a new Convoy 7135*8.
