I don’t think there is a very big difference to the eye when the spacing is that close. It’s also possible Utorch did not want too many modes. More than 4 or 5 levels might be too difficult to design into the driver or they might think it’s too many for the average customer.

I just hope they don’t make it too hard to get to max output. A double click for Turbo 1 and another double click for turbo 2 with no memory at these levels is not acceptable.

Missing a mode! 1k lm then jump to 10k, why?

Needs something like a 2500 or 3000 in there.

To add…interested if that mode spacing is made more useful and not all or nothing.

There could be one in there. We haven’t seen an actual testing yet.

Interested…

Can’t look away from a triple XHP70 bomb! Facepalm

However, i doubt this light has an adequate thermal path and dissipation to accommodate 80-90W for more then a few seconds… I’m curious to see the first reviews and how it behaves on turbo and high modes.

There are 6 basic modes on the flashlight .

Low – Medium – High – Turbo #1

And only double click (from any state) activates the highest mode , turbo #2 .

Yes, 6 modes – but better spacing needed – big gap between 1200lm and 10,000lm
moonlight: 0.1 – 10Lm / 240h;
low: 60Lm / 22h;
mid1: 200Lm / 12h;
mid2: 600Lm / 8h;
high 1200Lm / 2.5h;
turbo 10000Lm / 1h;

I suspect there is a higher output than 1200 lumens, as the runtime is stated to be only 2.5 hours, which is way too short for this output…

this light would be far more interesting if it had a config mode where you can set the brightness of each level

I don’t think there is a very big difference to the eye when the spacing is that close. It’s also possible Utorch did not want too many modes. More than 4 or 5 levels might be too difficult to design into the driver or they might think it’s too many for the average customer.

I just hope they don’t make it too hard to get to max output. A double click for Turbo 1 and another double click for turbo 2 with no memory at these levels is not acceptable.


Trust me, it’s noticeable
I often use 3000 lumen, it’s balance between runtime and output

Forgot my pen

3000 seems a decent level to me. 1000 ish on pure flood just isn’t enough to me, it’s spread so much there’s just not enough light on any one point.

I just tested, 3300lm brightness level is present for the sample. I am not sure if we should call it high 2 or turbo 1.

Awesome! If that’s the case, I would be interested depending on the price.
