Ric, you’d need to do a tailcap reading for us, confirmation. Or ask your HK/Shenzhen factory/distributor/shop to do it. Any info is better than no info. Thanks! Smile

Nice….do report on it for us man. I think you have a meter or at least a DMM. Smile

YES!

I have a water meter and I know about Digital Molecular Matter!

Don’t know how either of them will help! But I’ll do my best!! S)

that thing looks crazy big.
How long can the light run on high? and how hot does the head get after 10 minutes?

Actually the DMM current reading is more than enough and would give us a good idea. Thanks!

Remember to charge up your 26650 or 18650 to 4.2V, either one is good enough as i am able to adjust accordingly for both variants (voltage sag). 2 cells and 3 cells.

So the Apex couldn’t be driven at 2 amps or it was unstable, but 9 xml light and it’s all good…. I don’t understand it, but I like it!

Can anyone take a guess how well only using just two TrustFire – Protected TF 26650 3.7V 5000mAh batteries rather than using 3 of them would work in this light? I wouldn’t mind having this light if I could use it in the smaller 2×26650 configuration. Thanks.

Thats a very small spring in the head to be handling all that current. Hope the switch is beefy too.

I am very interested, but I will be waiting for more data from independent tests before I pull the trigger.

+1

2A @ each LED sound “too good”, not impossible I guess just too good Silly

Not to mention all the weight of three heavy 26650 batteries

Well, maglites have run 3,4,5 and six d cells for years, I just see this as a Maglite competitor….. J)

I do agree, it needs a decent switch and springs though. The usual fare is not going to cut it….

Don’t worry about the switch, springs. The TF X100 can handle 7A at the battery compartment end (springs/switches) with no sweat on 2 × 26650 when nearly depleted. Not sure how much to the LEDs total, but i guess about 10-11A.

It’d be nice if it can match the TF X100 in output, with 9 LEDs it could run all day with that kind of efficiency…. (of course it still gets hot, but manageable)

Wow!

I really thought this light would generate a lot more interest, especially when Ric has it in bold that it does 2 amps per LED. After all the excitment of the Apex here is a light off the mark stating the much desired output with heaps of LEDs as well.

Where is everybody????

Payday is only 2 days away, and sitting here at my desk I can see 20 odd single LED flashlights I have bought lately, so have been thinking it is time for a multi Smile

Well i think it’d be somewhat lower, and i think the head should be bigger (at least 90mm). LOL! Smile

And it’s not cheap, so that’s why everyone is holding out first and being cautious.

If it’s driven ever slightly harder than the TF X100, then it’s a good light. Don’t even have to spend 20 bucks on the KD driver. If tha’ts the case you’d need extremely good 18650 though, even with 26650s they would just be marginal.

Needs the option for neutral white, or a warmer bin of cool, and I’d get one after seeing a review with good results.

I Guess I Misinterpreted Previous Comments about the X100 because I was under the impression that the LEDs were driven acceptably well for a high-output light. Is it generally thought that it should have a stronger driver for optimum performance?

Also, how much perceptible difference do you think a driver replacement would make in the apparent output (X100)?

And last, how difficult would it be to change the driver in the X100?

Thanks,
Bob

I am about to order my first MULTI LED Light.

This one is literally identical, but with only 5 LED’s.

I can’t imagine battery life with NINE LED’s to push. Heat has to be an issue…

Maybe its just me. The 5’er can be had for $50. It comes down to $10 per LED and just how many you want!! Lol.

I’d for sure use three batteries to push 9. That’s 1 Battery per 3 LED’s! Can you imagine how hard 2 batteries are being worked??

If there is no light within you…there will only be darkness.

Just mumbling about...

18A is the teorethical total if all emitters were parallel driven. But don't really think it's driven this way.

9 emitters is an odd number. The easier way to drive them all would be 3 parallel groups of 3 series emitters each. This way a driver for 3 emitters could be used, and the total amp draw from the cells would be 6A.

Well, 6A is a big number anyway, I personally would not trust 18650 cells in this application, unless IMR. For decent 26650 it's all good.

Curious to hear about real world beamshot comparison. The 3 center emitters, with those extrasmall reflectors, would add to the total lumens output but the throw increment would be marginal.

Any thoughts?

I just pulled the trigger on a Sky Ray King and I was seeing how this is compared to it. I also want to know about how long this will stay on high. If this is as bright as I hope, imagine what the strobe is like Smile

I have tried with my 13pcs of multi XM-L lights, it’s quite nauseous. (my 4 DRYs have the older turbo driver with strobe).

I know I am probably the only one who likes strobe on these flashlights. I like to disorientate my brother with strobe for fun.

How much practical is this light ?

18A current mean 18Ax ~3.2V = ~60W of Heat

Actual runtimes…

I just received this light today. Unfortunately I can’t do tailcap readings or beamshots but what I can tell you is:

After about a 20 minute walk on high my batteries (AW IMR) had gone from 4.18V to Just under 3.7V.

The head although warm wasn’t hot.

The batteries were actually quit warm, but not hot.

You’ll need 26650’s as my 3 18650’s weren’t quite long enough so I couldn’t move the light around otherwise it would turn on and off.

My usually very consistent ceiling bounce readings gave me this after about a minute:
TK70 and TN30 – 120 to 125
Sky Ray – 175 to 185.

I’ve tested heaps of lights and compared them to tests on CPF and if you multiple my reading by 23 I think you get a reasonable lumens estimate.

Definitely a flooder this one but the hotspot is quite large and well defined.

TK70/TN30 around 2750 lumens
Sky Ray around 4150 lumens.

Sky Ray around 4150 lumens.

after reading this post, it definetly gets my attention now! i was pretty close to buying the x100, but this clearly should be brighter with even more flood.
so im thinking the tk70 still outthrows this sky ray correct?
if i was shining at a tree…say 150 feet away, will the skyray or tk 70 be brighter?
