Are wonder if these are real switches or “tactile”, the later would be a deal breaker considering Imalent history of malfunctionning “tactile” switches

Interestingly the DN35 claims 2200 ANSI lumens on turbo, could this be the first driver to really push the XHP-35 HI with 1×26650 ? that would be beyond 10A at the tail with a fresh cell.

Is there any group buy/code in the works for the DN35 ?

This seems to be a typo. Cree says that the XHP35-HI gives only 1483 lm.

A 26650 should run easily in this light, doesn’t even need to be high drain.

I’m excited to see how these new models really behave!

Cree numbers are very conservative and usually rated at where the emitter still achieves a decent lm/watts while managing the heat, with proper heat sinking the XHP35 HI can do up to 2,500lm.

16k lumens seems even more farfetched in that case

Idk why but the Imalent lights never took off on CPF.  They look like great lights and I was going to buy one at one point.  Still interested and the new lights look impressive indeed!

Surprising! Usually manufacturers do the opposite. In this case it’s excellent news. Do you have links where this has been published, like Texas_Ace did these last days for the LatticeBright (node 51604)?

And what about the XHP70? Can it reach 4500-5000lm?

The XHP70 can reach up to 6,000lm, even close to 7,000 if I remember correctly from one of Dale’s mods with a FET driver in a convoy L6.

Cree does not over rate their emitters because they must provide a spec sheet with full details, unlike flashlights manufacturers.

Impressive! I’d like to see those numbers.

Are there drivers for flashlights, for single LiIon cells, that can approach the necessary current? It seems boost drivers don’t.

XHP70 N2 can’t reach 6Klm even at 12A 7.75V, yes 93W for a single LED

That’s an N2.

There are P2 binned XHP70’s now.

Here’s one of Dale’s posts on his L6 (7400lm). http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1040184#comment-1040184

Would love to try the DN70, not really impressed with the output on my Olight R50 Pro.

Any codes for it?

That thread (http://budgetlightforum.com/node/36431) is really interesting, it’s what I was looking for. It does show that the XHP70 can irradiate much more than current single cell flashlights do.

That’s what the thread above shows. Of course this is only relevant for turbo mode. In the announcement the DN70 is better (waiting for the reviews to see how much it really does) but even if true could be significantly more…

Is it possible to have at least 5klm in turbo? Current batteries can do 20A continuous, so this doesn’t seem to be a limiting factor. Are there boot drivers that can reach ~10A in the output? Do they fit in a light of the size of DN70 or R50?

Ow, when I received the alert in e-mail of this thread I was very hopeful with beam shots in that…..

Damn, I will wait again

I think you don’t see much interest is the ridiculous pricing. I can have a Thrunite TN42 for far less. Or an acebeam K70 or several other K series for less $$.
The 8k lumen numbers combined with over 250,000 candlepower is enticing but the pricetag..arrggg

Well, Imalent don’t have the same reputation as Thrunite. With a discount, and taking into account that the lights come with four high drain batteries, the lights become quite interesting. I’m more worried about build quality.

Right! That is what I’m getting at, I can have a light from a company with an established reputation of good or excellent quality for less money. Doesn’t seem like it would be worth the risk to Shell out $250 on a flashlight from the maker that is not established

True. I like Thrunite very much, but they are currently not offering the type of lights like the DT70 or DT35. Nitecore does, however they are abusing their position as an established brand and charge $400 for the TM28… Totally ugh that is. The Imalents have USB charging and oled display, which I like very much… So they do have my attention…a lot…

Yep I’m much the same, like the look of the imalent dt70, but not at the price it is. ive got the first version of the imalent ddt40 had it since it first came out, use it most days and it’s pretty much my go to light, well thought out and very well constructed and with in torch charging that works, hopefully the dt70 will be as good or better, just waiting for a review or two to come out before I consider it.
Made that mistake of not waiting for the reviews before I bought the DN11, good torch but the touch button doesn’t work as well as it does on the ddt40,especially with gloves,but still good value for the price I paid

And I certainly haven’t forgotten the HR20 drama: a lot of samples with flickering issues, and things falling apart. Terrible wiring and build quality… You just don’t know what to get…

O yes, I’d forgotten about the HR20 – don’t know how, I bought 3 of them –
Was expecting good things after my experience with the ddt40, but they were a bit of a let down, to say the least.
I know we were pre warned they were new and untested, but even so.
Hopefully imalent will redeem themselves with these latest models, as they can make quality stuff with inovative features

Never understood that statement. All groupbuys of new lights involve new lights we don’t know how it’s going to perform… Or was it a special batch or something? I thought it was the actual production version but I could be wrong…

With the discount the price drop alot!

I cannot disagree with quality of thrunite, in my opinion is the most top brand but the output of dt35 is stunning Big Smile

That quality issue affects other light of imalent?
