MANKER GODMES Bluetooth programmable Flashlight - Review Sample Incoming!


Bluetooth control…nice.


Looks like it has a true disco mode Party

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

Interesting product. They rate it at 3000lm, but they also say:

“Utilizes 3pcs CREE XP-L LED,delivering a maximum output of 900 lumens, giving you more brightness and safe.”

I noticed that. Maybe they are talking per emitter?

I don’t either. I assume it strobes to the beat of music when connected to Bluetooth music source….

Kinda silly…but if you can…why not?

A BT controlled Flashlight… how often do I have a light that far away that it is easyer and faster to get my smartphone out to control the brightness?
Edit: That thing doesn’t even have a tripod thread – so the BT function is absolutely nonsense.

GOD i hope this don’t make a MESS. :bigsmile:

either way regardless of the odd name, its interesting if it uses three XP-L emitters maybe. One problem might be the heavy standby drain on the cells with the Bluetooth enabled for it to work. The only benefit i can see the bluetooth “remote control” thing use full in any way would be using it as a lantern when tail standing, or as a remote spot light mounted/duct-taped on a tripod maybe.

Guys…this isn’t just a remote control…it has remote programming for custom modes.

That is the only thing that came to my mind when I asked myself “For what?”

But… in which situation aren’t you able to get to the light but are able to get out your smartphone, open the app and press the button?
Is they would make a remote control for that (small one like for cameras) and a tripod-Thread – then this whole stuff would make a little bit of sense (even though 99,9% of buyers would never use that) – but in that case that is just pure bulls*it.

I can get the same brightness with a 30$ SkyRay Kung or a Warrior Silly

edit@Krono: Yes, maybe – but what use does it have for me to change the light from high to low while I am 5m away?

If you look closely, it also has an external BT antenna, so it should not have the connectivity issues that the Asgard had.

This could be one reason included in description.

“There are a 1/4 and 3/8 foot neck finish adapter,photographers can use different size tripod.”

Now…what the heck is a “neck finish adapter”?

Now…blue tooth MODE/LEVEL programming (levels and enable/disable strobes) would be AWESOME…not have to have bluetooth control and and app to have it change modes instead of using the push button

like having the ability to flash an attiny w/ bluetooth…upload whatever levels/firmware you want thru a bluetooth connection

Still a very awesome looking light

It’s Mazinger Z on meth!

First we have touchscreen flashlight, then IR remote controlled flashlight, now we have bluetooth programmable flashlight. What’s next? A flashlight with power bank, bluetooth speaker and phone function? oh wait…

It does indeed look like an interesting light.  It seems to take everything the FLEXcandles Asgard promised to be and made it the real deal (hopefully without all the issues the Asgard had).  The guy who started Manker was an engineer at Nextorch and decided to go off on his own to make lights he wanted to make.  The Godmes is his first creation.  

Why the name "Godmes"?  Apparently his child asked him what he watched when he was a child and he recalled a show named "Dinosaur Corps Koseidon".  One of the main villains in it is named Godmes and happens to bear more than a striking resemblance to this flashlight...

 Hence the name "Godmes" as well as the logo caricature.

With it's external BT antenna and BT 3.0 the range can be as far as 100m under optimal conditions.  By mounting the antenna externally he resolved the issue that plagued FLEXcandles, who tried to make the antenna work internally.

Nextorch is known for their USB programmable flashlights and since he is the guy behind those lights it's a pretty safe bet that they will have far less bugs, if any, than FLEXcandles had with their software.  I'm looking forward to testing this light out.  Even if it does 2700 OTF it can still be a useful and unique light.

I agree JM…I am looking forward to checking this light out.

But…their light for the Torch Club (Chinese flashlight forum) was, I believe, their first creation. My review here:

Hi Krono, do you have a link to this chinese forum? is it Shoudian or something else? I like visiting those places for new lights that might have potential…

Thanks! Smile

My review sample is on the way as well.  Really looking forward to it.  I am hoping it will be everything the Asgard promised to be but never had the chance to be.  From the pics Neal took when he got it the construction and build looks top notch.

 

Happy to hear you will be reviewing it too, Krono!  It'll be nice to compare notes.
