Ditto, Like was mentioned in the thrower thread, some 90+ CRI neutral tint XHP70’s would be amazing!

Much better than most, the question is does the tint fall towards the green or rosy side of the range?

If rosy 80+ CRI then that would in theory give this the best tint of an XHP70 light so far.

I have no idea man… I personally think it’s really cool that Haikelite use 80+ CRI. Seriously, what other (triple) XHP70 lights are out there with stock 80+ CRI? No Thrunite TN36-UT, no Olight X7…

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

Hi Ronin

Tint: CREE XHP70 N4 6500K CW or CREE XHP70 3A 5000K-CRI80

that is wonderful! now, your UI is a step above, or at least better than all…err…most companies in my opinion. having turbo be memorized is a good move.
is the silver version available yet? if not, is there an eta?
what is the final lumen measurement on turbo?

Is this light for sale under $100 just like your xhp thrower?

Switch LED indicator: Blow 20% power: The flashlight will flash fast and step-down to moonlight.

Everything in the ui sounds good, except I’d recommend:
Below 10% switch down to low
Below 5% switch down to moonlight

By forcing the light to go to very low moonlight with 20% still left, I think you’ll be unnecessarily limiting useful runtimes.

HaikeLite is a new brand and we wont sell high price. But seriously this light costs too high.

So here is the pricing (no discount)
129usd for CW
139usd for 5000K NW CRI80

Better awaiting the review test. We will officially pubic the specs and other info after holiday on 7th.

That still doesn’t seem like bad pricing for the specs and seeing how it’s made.

Looks like a very good price point based on the listed prototype specs. If the final specs are close to those it would essentially be a meteor on steroids, with a much better UI at a much lower price.

I may have to sell a few lights to make room for this triple and the thrower…. Smile

Hi electircjelly

You can press the switch again to use other modes until the light shut off at cut-off volt.

fast flash and Step-down to moonlight below 20% power is to remind people to use lower power mode and charge the battery in time. 20% can not last long on turbo or high, but can last long enough on low low, Low or middle.

Very interesting, if the high-CRI 5000K version is really sold for around 140 USD and the test are good this could be my first superflooder (was looking at the Thrunite TN36UT or Meteor M43 or Olight Marauder X7…).

A few thoughts though:

- I don´t understand why you did not use the double switch from the other XHP70 thrower for this flooder… IMHO holding the switch to cycle through the modes is not good… on the other light you have a two way switch but do not use it the way it would be the most intuitive… I mean the simplest and most intuitive UI is hardly seen on flashlights: two buttons, press UP for mode UP and DOWN for DOWN … simple as that!

Good luck with your business!

Looks interesting, and I agree that $129 is pretty reasonable.

However, I for one would not be willing to spend that kind of money without seeing some kind of review by a reputable BLF user, with an analysis of runtime, output, heating, and general quality of the light. I’m sure others will agree with me on this.

I'm late to the party here. Just finished reading through the thread. I am impressed by the willingness shown by HaikeLight to listen to input from BLF members. An large number of suggestions have been incorporated into the design of this light.

These days, my favorite flashlight reviewer (by far) is BLF member maukka. He uses test equipment that most reviewers do not have access to, and provides more hard data than most other reviewers. I would love to see his test results for the high-CRI version of this flashlight.

Yes, MT03 devourer.

Blow is flat matt black anodizing, looks and feel very good , but when i use it outdoor Yestoday , it gets dirty easy. Final big batch is less flat and will be ready for shipping next week.

Have you guys come up with a final turbo output yet?
9000 lumens?
is there a step down? Is there any way you can make each individual reflecter slightly bigger so that it takes up the whole space of the reflecter?
Maybe you can gain a little extra lux by doing so.

The olight x7 is a good example. And I notice the x7 and tn36ut has overlapping reflecters. Yours is almost individual. I wonder what’s the difference and which one is better….?

I think it get`s dirty very easy because of the knurling. Try another knurling ( like convoy for example) and you could clean it easily.

nar i dont think it’s the knurling.

It’s the matte finish that makes it attract dust.

That looks really good Haikelite! The finish reminds me a bit of the Convoy L6, which is a good thing Wink

Knurling can get dirty. The peaks get ragged. Do a quick skim cut to knock the tops off. Personally I don’t care about the anodizing attracting dirt because that means it’ll probably be less slippery when wet and oily.

The low mode should be lower.

I find aesthetically the reflector of the X7 and the  TN 36 nicer.
