This light looks tailor made for folks that complain about not being able to run on high until the batteries are dead.

I’m interested, depending on price and how that 0.1-10 lumen moonlight mode actually works.

The low mode should be lower.

Looks good. Interested dependant on price. I have no need for it but it looks like a powerhouse.

Also M4DMAX tested an unknown pre-release product.

Just because it looks very similar and its internal circuit showed “Manker” doesn’t mean it’s likely to be related…. or does it Big Smile

I believe they implied an approximate value between 0.1 to 10lm.

~160mm. I will measure it when it arrives tomorrow. Else you could also find out from giorgoskok.

Because high mode is a measly 1200 lumens I’d say.

Why do all these XHP70 triples have such insane mode spacing?

G’day!

Hmmm…. I’m betting it’s programmable like Manker MK34 or MK35 (engineering mode). I mean Utorch is pretty much Manker so…

So that they can say “my dad is bigger than your dad”….

It’s all a massive numbers game. Big numbers sell. This is 10k lumens, that is crazy. I still reckon it’ll be too hot to hold after 5mins if it stays on full pelt.

Couldn’t high mode be 2500 lumens or something sustainable for 10 mins or so?
1200 lumens from something capable of 9000 is more like a low to medium mode.

G’day!

I couldn't agree more. It would be better if they have included at least one intermediate mode between 2500-3000lm value.

I hope they fix the UI, if they don’t I doubt they will sell many of them.

G’day!

Interested depending on price and if they have better mode spacing like 3000 and 6000 between 1500 and 10,000.

Nope, then you’ll get the folks whining about how this is a poorly engineered product because it can’t even stay on high for more than 10 minutes or so. So we get modes called turbo, turbo 1, turbo 2, etc. High can run for 2.5 hours, doesn’t that look great on paper? Ha! I don’t want the highest mode to be able to stay on indefinitely. I want it to push to the point just before damage to the flashlight occurs, and if that causes 3rd degree burns or starts a fusion reaction, that’s okay with me.

I’m going to have to look into that engineering mode. 10 lumen moonlight is ridiculous, but I could see times where I’d swap a true moonlight for a specific low.

The low mode should be lower.

/\ Sure but how long will it last on turbo without dropping down in power dramatically.

The body is small. There doesn't appear to be much mass in there for getting rid of the heat from the emitters.

The nearest thing I've got to that is the TN36 and that gets too hot to hand hold after ~15mins

My concern with this light is the size of the light and the amount of heat it’s going to put out. I’ve just sat down with my TN36 (fresh cells), a temperature probe and a lux meter.

The light was on for 15mins and went from room temperature (probe reads a little high here) and topped out at 68c.

At this point the light was too hot to hold and the output had dropped a fair bit. I’ve got no way of accurately measuring at the moment but the lux meter shows you an idea of how many “units” it dropped by rather than just seeing it get a bit darker.

So this is a 6000 lumen light that looses power quite dramatically in under 15mins and at the same time gets far too hot to hold.

How this 10k lumen monster will cope is beyond me!

Not only the heat of the emitters but when I took the cells out just now they were all really hot. 15mins use and down to 3.96v too so quite an impact.

I’ll post a 4x sped up youtube video in just a bit so you can see 15mins compressed a fair bit Big Smile

Put me on the list.

It’s going to be good competition with the Q8. They each have their pros and cons.

My Convoy L6 thread with Texas Avenger FET driver, Narsil ramping firmware, lighted side switch and cut down SMO reflector. Lots of amp draws on stock driver as well.
