Yeah saw it too. Not exactly going to be cheap I guess… Probably around 25000 lumens just like the X9?

The X9 is around $400, right? The Acebeam X65 already costs as much or more, so I can see this X80 selling for over $700. That’s about 3x more than I’m willing to pay for any single light right now.

The low mode should be lower.

Nice. We can boil water for tea while on camping.

Still funny how every time I look at that head, the first thing that comes to my mind is a SkyRay King clone with whole bunch of Lattice Bright leds

It’s better to be able to put out at least 26k OTF lumens or else I don’t see the point of this model.
And it’s going to be super floody with this kind of big-die emitters + small reflectors configuration.

My 16X XHP50 does 37K, but that's FET based. I'd guess they would do 24K max, but probably 20K or under. My 16X at least gets some decent throw because there is some reflector size, but this one has virtually nothing. It would be interesting to see the price and numbers on it.

sahala - is that your picture? Any more info? Oops see it on the facebook page - don't like those bit lying links smile

I am not fond of proprietary battery packs, I like the old battery carriers where I could pick whatever hi performance 18650 I like, Wish the X65 had a battery carrier it might have convinced myself buying one.

Thanks for grabbing that picture for us sahala. Thumbs Up
I was having trouble getting that last night. I would sure like to see a side view of this thing. I’m sure they’ll post that soon.

One of my first thoughts was. Is this also going to have a built-in battery pack? Plus, that thought also played into just where to post this here in BLF. I wasn’t able to find a ‘Battery Pack’ section. Smile

I am going to guess 24,000lm. It looks like they are throwing in everything but the kitchen sink here. What is the target market they are after with this thing I wonder?

I also wonder about the target market for the colored LEDs in the center. They take up a lot of space that could be used to increase the throw. Maybe a better use of the space would be to put a single reflector with XHP35 to have the option of a lower power narrow beam with some throw.

Wow, that business end looks formidable. On the flip, I find it quite aesthetically unappetising. I look forward to seeing what the rest of unit looks like.

I am with you there AlexGT. No battery packs for me either. Though I can see their appeal. For people who only have one flashlight (or very few) for example, and don’t use them very often. They like to just keep them plugged in, and ready to go at a moments notice. Years can go by, and their battery pack will have seen very few charging cycles.

For you and I. We like to change it up. We use our flashlights much more often, and can use the latest and greatest cells at any time. Say 6 years from now, we can easily pop-in a brand new set.

Just like Arnold Schwarzenegger says: “No problemo” Steve

It looks like a single-stranded, positive-sense, enveloped RNA flashlight.

Not sure on this, for me the colour LEDs are a waste as don’t want or need them. Would prefer xhp35HI’s, be them In a reflector or optics (narrow focus). As for battery packs, presuming it’s an 8×18650 light, sometimes carriers are not user friendly . When I use the tk75 with added run time kit(4+4 ), it’s a pita swapping out in day light….never mind in the field. Carriers do have advantages at times, plug in and charge wins for me in this case….subjective I know.

Without active cooling it would be nice presse-papiers.

The soda can flashlight war is heating up.

The low mode should be lower.

With NVSU233A it will be great stuff for finding and frying scorpions Crazy

Best UV LED in multi-purpose (and multicolor) flashlight I’ve ever seen. Hope it will have nice UI with so many different LEDs on board.

Don’t worry, pure flood with weak throw will underwhelm quickly, unless you dont have any other monster light, those larger XHP50 dies barely got anything to collect them.

Big flood is where it’s at after the thrill of big throw is gone
