It’s not a good sign that the changes come that late. It would be more interesting when or if the light will get ready. It seems that quite a lot people already bought it or pre-ordered it until today.

I just want meaningful communication. Delays happen with new products. Look at Kickstarter campaigns. Delays are expected. Backers get pissed, leave in droves, and some file lawsuits when there’s a lack of communication. Then there’s Elon Musk. He’s notorious for making impossible deadlines, and inevitably blowing those deadlines, but he communicates well enough to have earned the backing of billions of dollars from investors and customers.

The low mode should be lower.

Interesting how you brought up Elon Musk. He does play a role in my love for flashlights. When I have decided to purchase a new light after seeing many reviews and videos of it, I select the light… go to cart… pay… Paypal… redirect to Paypal… you know what I’m talking about right?

But all this doesn’t help me and the others who already ordered and are waiting for the information. I think at least Haikelite should give new information what happens now.

There's only one contact person from HaikeLite, so probably got tied up or something. It is weird though they started taking orders...

I don't see or can't find them on amazon US, but looks like their website can take orders.

I do know they are very concerned about getting all the details right for the production release, so my think'n is the delays are good.

Got a reply. Mine should ship very soon.

The low mode should be lower.

Couldn’t you have waited just 10 more seconds before taking that picture? Now you’ve blinded that person! Wink

Do you have a candela or lux reading for this light? Will get this one or the MT07, just have to decide.

It’s supposed to be about the same. There’s supposed to be a brighter version coming that could be worth waiting for if you can deal with the larger body.

The low mode should be lower.

Take a close look at the LED indicator, in my opinion, this is too bright.

not just too bright……it’s distracting.

i dont understand the principle having that led as indicator when the torch is on. It would make more sense to have it as light locator when the torch is off

It was a little worrysome first two minutes on turbo with a cooling fan. At the two minute mark there was an audible puffing sound. First I thought that something had gone horribly wrong, but after closer inspection it was just hot air escaping through the side and ejecting the side switch. Similar thing happened with the Acebeam EC60 and its rubber usb port cover.

The light seems to ramp out the output if properly cooled. Ignore the y axis, they’re not verified lumens, but I can say that it is reaching at least the promised 8760 lumens.
