Mini review on Acebeam L10

Mini review on Acebeam L10

No affiliation but was provided free upon a voluntary recall of Supbeam K50 ( a new Acebeam K50 was sent out along with the L10)

Manufacturer specs:
LED: Cree XP-G R5 LED with lifespan of 50,000 hours
• Max output 120lumens (1*AA NiMh or Alkaline battery )
• Output Modes (select by twisting head) Mode 1: Firefly 0.09lms (147hour) Mode 2: Low 30lms (13hour) Mode 3: High 120lms (1hour&30min) Mode 4: Strobe 120lms

With Memory Function

• Working Voltage : 1.5V
• Impact resistance:1.2Meters
• Waterproof to IPX-8 standard
• Size: 79mm(length)x17mm(head diameter)x17mm(tube diameter)
• Weight: 20g(without battery)
• Made of durable aircraft grade aluminum
• Premium Type III hard-anodized anti-abrasive finish
• Toughened ultra-clear glass lens with anti-reflective coating
• Copper base plate for more efficient heat
• Shiny smooth reflector and get perfect beam
• Inside of each box included: 1x L10 Flashlight 1x L10 nice gift package box 2x Replacement O-rings 1x Keychain ring 1x User Manual 1x Warranty Card

Excellent anodization appears the same dull finish as used on large acebeam lights
No tailcap, battery tube is one piece.
Closest tolerance threads I have seen on any light.
Orange peel reflector
Ar lense
Tailstand yes
Twist to turn on. Mine always starts in low then another twist for medium then high then disco.
Low is very low, I would say below moonlight. Medium is fine for walking and maybe reading. High is very impressive for such a small light.
Nice neutral white with a large central spot and large flood.
I used to have a maglight aaa keychain light and used it until the aluminum wore out to nothing, these keychain lights are really useful for reading opening locks etc. For a few years I have been using my cellphone for this purpose but now that I have seen the light, this is going on my keychain and will be used a lot.

Compared to 2012 version 2 x AA maglight

Maglight left Acebeam right. Note that maglight does have adjustable beam and is capable of slightly more throw.

Maglight

Acebeam

Acebeam gets the best rating that I can give really. I like all 3 lights that I have from them. Really well made quality stuff.
The K40m is really my favourite light period
The K50 has 4 batteries for long runtime and ingenious built in charging
The L10 is a high quality little powerhouse.

PS: Bella with Acebeam went out of her way to assist me and I really appreciate her sincerety.

They have XP-G2 too on production and sometime it mixed. Ask for neutral color (if you like the color), possibility to get XP-G2 is higher.

Interesting light, so its basically OEM version of IS L3-L10?

Wouldnt mind to check beamshots of its lowest mode if possible, any one could share those? Im interested in using it as close distance reading light at night, around half meter or slightly more, say up to 2-2.5ft?

Also, whats the best current price on it Big Smile Wink ?

The firefly mode may be sufficient for what you’re describing. Just under a lumen, so in darkness and at close range it may be fine. I can try it tonight and post back to give you a definitive answer.

Right now it looks like $17 (Ebay and Banggood) and up is what you’re looking at for the L10. It is my favorite keychain light and it would be hard to beat the run time.

I was able to read very small print from perhaps 18 inches away give or take, and my eyes weren’t yet fully adjusted to the total darkness. So it’s doable Smile

It's down to US$14.43 on Banggood with coupon 36bgc8  (15% off).

The item is listed in the clearance area , where the code 36bgc8 is displayed for all to see in a big banner. I believe the code can be used for any clearance item. It's not a private or secret code

acebeam will not be amused…

and they close the sources for good deals one by one Sad
gearbest is not supplied any moremore afaik

.

sorry for being the “pointing guy” again, but there are rules for the game with hidden codes (and aff links)

if one plays fowl all members here lose…

————————

I apologize for being to fast with my words!
I didn’t see that it’s a clearance item.

sorry!

(I wondered why it’s more expensive than other blf-members have to pay Wink
not the best deal…)

Hope they consider restocking it with an upgraded emitter.
The size and driver efficiency is class leading at that price point. Beer
A must have imho!
Good choice for gifting.
Need to mention green tint in outdoor conditions. Sad
