Imalent DX80 32000 lumen monster

Imalent is attending the Asia Outdoor Exhibition where it is demonstrating three new models. One of them is the DX80, which according to one source (1) can reach 32000 lumens. That’s right: thirty-two-thousand lumens… Sick
Same story here: probably going to love the light for its specs and looks, but seriously question reliability. Anyhow, Imalent is certainly not standing still.

Their lumen claim is always off. My wild guess it has 27500 lumens lol
Either way it’s gonna be a serious light

Yep. Nevertheless it’s most likely to do at least 20000 lumens OTF, whatever their final specification will be, so it will be mighty fine.

Is there some other way to learn more about this light other than a site in Chinese or Facebook?
I’m not going to join Facebook just for that

There is only one picture on Facebook. No specs, nothing yet. Hopefully we’ll hear more details in the next couple of days…

The real question is how long will it be able to do that kind of output. That will be around ~300-500W worth of heat depending on how they intend to reach that output. A CPU cooler would be needed to keep that kind of heat in check for any length of time.

I personally accepted the fact that this kind of output will solely be a “burst” mode, and not like how “burst” was used two years ago, but really burst, as in a minute or so. I’m more interested in steady state output. 3000 lumens and I’m happy.

Ah, so this was the outdoor show they hinted at. I could only find the one in Arizona, but that didn’t make sense. I’d like to know more about those rooftop tents.

The low mode should be lower.

3000 is a bit low for a light that size. I’m hopefully it could be more like 6k

Thats some serious lumens. Im 100% sure you wont be able to hold it (bare hands) after 1 mins at those outputs.

There is just physically not enough material to transfer that much heat. I created a 21000lm light bar and it has a huge aluminium heatsink of 300×100×50mm and that hit temps of 57 degrees after 10 mins, then stabilises at that.
Now something that small would only be a 30 second burst at max until it hits above 50 degrees C. None the less, I would want one haha

You guys keep forgetting Imalent has a pretty bad track record for QC. That said, pretty impressive output if it comes close to it’s specs.

Your posts were definitely not rude. Based on what you said, I should have gotten one too because I wouldn’t touch an Imalent branded flashlight with a ten foot pole from my own bad experience with them.

HR20 wasn’t it? Yeah I haven’t forgotten that either… I do like Imalent’s offering; they just have a different vibe. I can only hope they truly have improved QC. I mean they sell a lot of lights I guess, and the more defective products they sell, the more upset customers contact Banggood and Gearbest. Those vendors will complain to Imalent etc. No one benefits from defective products… We’ll just have to be patient to see what’s going to happen. It’s part of the flashaholic’s life and charm I guess.

I forget the model but it was the headlamp that flickered. Also, the end with the USB and brightness control fell off on mine without dropping it. What a piece of garbage.

As a consumer grade flashlight they are okay. I would never pay full price for an Imalent if i can score a HR20 for around 30 USD that is still a good buy.

After taking a few apart they are not that great when compared to say Nitecore or Olight but still want to charge the same and or more. You can see where they save money i had LED wires come of from just tightening the bezel. I am sure if i left it alone it may have been okay for a while unless i dropped it.

Lumen numbers i guess they like to state theoretical numbers. So maybe this light will have 8 XHP70s.

Interesting you mention a sales rep. If there were an Imalent sales rep, just like some vendors have here, isn’t that going to be in the benefit for us? If we receive a funky light we can get some assistance smoothing the warranty process? Look at what happened to Franz with his Klarus G30… Just wondering… And come on, that DX80 is a monster, and the discount price will be really, really good…

I can’t comment on their quality/reliability, but I do like how Imalent attempts to make their high output flashlight beams more balanced by emphasizing throw. Like the DT70 with its dedomed/sliced XHP70s.

It looks like the head has enough room to hold the mass that would be needed to sink lots of heat for a spell.

Fuel supply? Four 18650 high drain? Or more capacity than that?

Emitter configuration? Eight 70.2?

I eagerly await throw and other specs.
