Ssshhh, don't tell him, but, resistor modding, or swapping wires, or potting, or ... smile

Yes, this light has just one switch, but two switch's is not a problem. I'd go with Narsil/Attiny85/LDO/FET, maybe 1 7135, maybe a bank, maybe both - depending on the I/O pin availability.

Q2: The contact ring under the driver has been clamped, not be screwed-in. You will need a tool to pull it out by strong force if you want to dissassemble it. Bezel is not glued.

Ouch! Is it too late to get that changed to something more moddable/serviceable friendly? This doesn’t sound good…. frown

Hi Tom

The engineer is abit concerned that non-flashoholic users will dissamble the light out of curiosity to cause some damage.

In fact the retaining ring part has not been machined. Will discuss it again with our engineers tomorrow.

If you use a snap ring

With very small holes Tom and the likes can still open it up but people not in the know won’t do it.

Not a good idea for a solid contact .
Just my thought

Threaded ring would be preferred, but if you want, don't leave any guide holes - we can drill them, not a problem...

Have you applied for a review? They want someone to do a video review if I’m not mistaken.

Hello Haikelite,

can you perhaps share some information about the stepdown process?

- How long can the light produce 8000 lumens before stepping down?
- Is it time based, or is it temperature based?
- Is there a fulltime thermal protection on the light?
- And do you get the full 8000 lumens with half depleted cells?

Thanks!

The reflector is very shallow. Not gonna see any useful light in 200 metres range. Sometime a hotpsot is needed to spot things at distance.
Interesting to see how this compete with olight x7.

Any auto step down from turbo or high?

And why there is a gap between body tube and head?

The hotspot can only been seen in close distance.

What gap do you point to? The gap among the cooling fins? It’s designed for lanyard hole. There are two landyard holes in the head, normal camera belt can fit this light,though no much need to use a belt for soda can light. Would be good to use a belt in other two big haikelite monsters.

Haikelite: take a look at the Olight X7 marauder, I think it has set a pretty high standard for triple XHP70 lights.

It also only costs $199, it might be useful for you to set as reference.

See picture no 3 on your first post.
Where the body tube screwed in to the head there is a small gap. Before the fins.

That’s why I want them to push output higher. Under 10k lumens isn’t that special anymore. If this thing has thermal regulation, then crank output to 11 for turbo mode, then crank it to 19 for a super turbo mode.

The low mode should be lower.

9 to 10k lumens is superb.

Will , 199$ isn’t so cheap , and i think even HaikeLite has a lower target… Beer

Even with temperature step-down and thermal regulation, Turbo really gets hot after 4-5 minutes.
10K VS 9K has almost no difference to human eyes. And Less than 1 minutes turbo runtime is not we targeted.

18K haikelite is still under internal testing. We planned to release the sample next month. It’s a totally different form factor with huge heatsink area

That 18K sounds like the light for me. I don’t need a compact 4×18650 light, so make it big with crazy output. Heat could be good for me though, especially this winter in a poorly insulated shop. I’d have the brightest handwarmer in town.

The low mode should be lower.

18k light. Ok, that’s light number three. Six lights you were going to release. I hope to hear about the remaining three other lights soon…

less concerned about instant max lumen number as max sustainable max lumen numbers.

it seems if you ask the question what is the max lumens that can be “used” there seems to be about a 3k upper limit.

or to put it anouther way i want to see a non turbo top 10 shootout.

oh can you give use more info on the tints offered, thanks
