Hi all,
.
.
.
The quality of this light really is more than what I expected. The user interface in particular is well thought out.

If you have an acebeam let us know what you think of it.

In Him (Jesus Christ) was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Nice review. Thank you!!

 

I agree. It's hard to find a good UI's in factory lights. And that beam is pretty Beer

 

God Bless!

Yeah, David was talking with me on the phone when his came in and I found through that conversation that it’s a very nice light. His had a tiny foible out of the box but it was fixed easily enough, an oddity no doubt. I’m looking at this very hard, wanting it but unable at the moment to justify it (having spoken for the Q8 and being who-knows-how-close on that one)

I’ll have to watch your video after hours when internet service is more available, but I look forward to seeing it.

Great video and review. That light is sweet! The cool white beam throws like crazy. Do you have an eBay store with the name you use here? If that’s you, I’ve shopped there and got some great stuff. Thanks!

Best regards,

Matthew

Another nice review, and I agree that this must be a really good well thought-out flashlight. About the design: I like the looks of all recent Acebeam flashlights Smile

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

Very nice review and a very nice flashlight. I enjoyed watching your video.

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

….and there’s no cure either I’m afraid.

I don’t own an Acebeam, but after seeing this video, I just might have to get one.

BTW, I love your videos. You have a really cool sense of humor.

One thing I noticed both with this light as well as the X80, is that close up shots of these lights make them look really, really good. Have you seen a close up of the reflector of the X80? Just wow…

That’s a great price. Amazon is closer to a hundred.

Vipon is great. I’ve been buying deals there since April 2016. Did reviews for lots of great items at low price or free. Snagshout, Jumpsend, Elite deals, etc. when Amazon changed the rules about product for review the sites do t have near the good deals they used to have. I got 1648 items so far. CashThumbs Up

Best regards,

Matthew

Good review and what looks to be a nice light.

One nit pik though. You said that it had square threads. I didn’t see square threads. >>>>>>square threads<<<<<<<

What I saw was this, a “standard” /\/\/\/\/\/\ type of thread. Am I incorrect?

I bought one of these through the deal on Vipon. After discount I got the light for $53.57. An excellent deal for a $100. flashlight. It performs awesomely. The throw is amazing as the video review shows. Very happy with this purchase. Today, three awesome lights were delivered. The Emisar D4 XP G flavor, the Haikelite MT01, and the Acebeam L16. Thumbs Up

Best regards,

Matthew

Yes, for all things on Vipon that are for Amazon if the before coupon price is at least $25 then you will get free shipping but you need to remember to click the free shipping option because it defaults to the pay shipping.

I’d also like to see if anyone has had any problems with this Acebeam, I was put off the Klarus xt12gt due to popping emitters, whining step up psu maybe indicating unhealthy overboosting (cant be good) and short turbo duration.
