Jaxman X1s series are ready to sell

hi,dear all,those days,I was focusing on a new single 26650/18650 flashlight,the X1s. X1s is a developed model of the X1.
The out look of X1s.






and the some detail picture:


We want the X1s be a short,powerful,and solid flashlight. It should has a good waterproof,well holding feeling,and a practical tool for the user.We produce two version, the throw and the flood.

the flood version is based on XHP50 famlily lamps. we can use XHP50,XHP50.2.We now can provide the XHP50 in 4 tints, and XHP50.2 in 1 tint—-6000K coolwhite.

the throw version is based on a 3535 size LED—- XHP35 HI. and a smooth reflector.

we have 3 kinds of tint xhp35hi now.

We decide the last modes are: High 100% ,Middle 40%, Low 10%. and another working mode—-fast stobe at 8hz, at any mode,if the user fast click the switch in 0.2S, the flashlight will go into fast strobe mode. And once the user shut off the power and turn on again, the flashlight will go into the former mode before fast strobe.

Because in the trial production we use a different mode: H,M,L,breath strobe and fast stobe(2 fast click), so we have some trial version in flood X1s XHP50.

The driver of X1s is a boost one,so the current is some big, max. can up to 7A. so we use a larger tactical switch. This switch is some different with the other JAMXAN flashlight,
the tail switch will on when you press it lightly and locked if you press hardly. And so the mode changing orperation must be finished before you lock the switch.

As the shelf or drill,we think they are all good solutions. To choose which is only for the technical convenience.This X1s is no drill.

We have to repeat one question, the X1s is based on standard 26650/18650 battery.Any battery with a protection board maybe not well accord to X1s.There is no a standard of all repacked batteries, some are thicker,some are longer, no standard size…We promise the max OD of the battery is 26.5mm, the Max. Length is 68mm. Otherwise it will cant work.

Another probelem is, all protect battery maybe cant discharge at >6A. so if so, the 20W flood version may cant work, because it need a bigger input current.

All the 2 kind of X1s are working at the official max. power in high mode. the flood version is 20w max,and the throw version is 13w max.

As a new product, we set a 15% off. one price is including shipping fees,—-since most buyer like the price including shipping fees, I want make a try. one is without shipping fees.so the price is some different. I do like a directly thinking method,but the market is like an not directly way, then I want try it too.

Any question, pls mail me zx.bao@foxmail.com or here.

Best wishes.

We love flashlights.

Hi Jaxman,

1. You should add some links to your post:

Jaxman X1s throw

Jaxman X1s flood

2. What’s the difference between “breathing” strobe and “fast” strobe? Did you remove “breathing” strobe from the final UI?

Yeah, much better than a squiched o-ring.
Olight do that from long time now, Jaxman made the right choice with that !

First time I watched I was convinced the lens would shatter, but it didn’t. Then I read in JM’s review about the rubber ring surrounding the lens entirely… Really nice feature.

thank you very much for your adding links.

the final UI is without breathing strobe. the breathing strobe is a trial samples’ UI.

now we have only few this UI flashlight in XHP50 version X1s. The XHP35 HI X1s now is all the H M L (hidden fast strobe) UI solution.
And we also can provide the final UI XHP50 X1s to BLFers, only need you mention it and let us know it.

We love flashlights.

I know that your business plan is to provide reliable flashlights but you could safely overdrive the CREE emitters at 200% and still be safe.
At 2A, the XHP35 would REALLY throw and still be cool enough given the mass of the X1s !

Jaxman can overdrive that driver and call it the X1mod. Since we at BLF strive to push the limits of LED technology. Not let it work at suggested specs but at what is possible without compromising on safety

Words can be broken,
so can bones.

At 1 amp, it’s not worth it to me personally.

I will buy it overdriven at 2+ amps. All the extra cooling features need to be worth it.

Please jaxman, offer it to us with higher amps if you are able to. Smile

This light is soo close to what I’ve been looking for!

Great construction for a budget light!

I dont see the XHP50.2 on AliExpress, will it be added? Any specific reason why warm white or neutral xhp50.2 isn’t an option?

Exactly my thinking. I had the light in my shopping cart until I read only 1 amp.
And at only 1300 Lumen’s, theres nothing a xpl hi can’t do. Please take advantage of the xhp35 hi and the nice big light for heat sink.

if the XHP35hi has the same output as a XPLhi in terms of lumens, still ver nice, means reliable, no heat issues AND bigger lightsource so fatter beam.

I do not want to let a LED working at a non-official condition.
sorry for that, even I really can realize a double current, I would not do it.

thanks for your support on my thinking.
what I most care, is that: any one Jaxman flashlight must be a solid tool. solid is first.
and what is more, we should find the balance of power consumption and the efficiency.
a 1300lm x1 flashlight has been a good thrower.That is my frankly review on the extra-power input.

Depending on colour temperature close to $50 for the XHP35 variant and about $42 for the XHP50 variant. You can check them out in the Aliexpress store.

One has free shipping. One doesn’t. So works out the same price

Edit: ONE AMP..? No wonder, just went outside with the old X1 and a UT02 and there are issues, very under powered, not so impressed I guess, but do realize this is a work in progress so it will improve as you go I suspect, nice host though and superb knurling.

The light is integrated shelf now as the old X1 was a pill, has a new reflector with minimal changes overall.
The knurling on the new X1 is real nice, I am telling you REALLY nice over the old X1, and the tail end threading of the tube still will lego, great mod light.
The board is DTP and lots of thermal and screwed down.
There is no more tripod screw but easily remedied.
This new light is a bit longer or taller by about 3/4” or so.
Branding is now only on the one side instead of both sides, this is nice, very clean light and well machined, As Always..!!
Pocket and shelf is fine..
Tail switch is now a three legged switch and tail stands perfectly and a bit nicer than the old two legged one as shown in pics. Sorry about the dirt on my older X1 switch, the switch a sponge boot I won’t comment.
I will reserve my complete opinions overall as this is not meant to be a in detail review at all, just some pics and some pics I won’t post here,
But I will say I prefer the old reflector over this new one and leave it at that. But I will be contacting you with something I noticed Paul.

My personal thoughts is that I would like to see 2 versions available of the X1 for sale at Jaxman, this new one and the old X1 continued but in this integrated style and with the old style bezel but with this new knurling on it, and also continue with the original LED options and driver format but as mentioned with this newer integrated shelf style, just do away with the old pill, and use the old style bezel back with this new knurling ring as mentioned
I must say that if anything impressed me the most it would be that new knurling.

What would happen if you put the extension tube on the x1s and use two 26650? More output or would you fry the driver?

Had posted a message then thought twice and pulled it down immediately,
Box I don’t know, but suspect the driver will melt down, no big deal, will be stripping it today anyhow, really wanted to say something here to my forum members about this light and what I’m seeing but this isn’t my thread…. all I will say is give this some thought..!!

Thanks T18. I thought it would be cool to have the option of choosing between one or two cells. Instead of getting the jaxman x6

The old X1 will run with 2 cells in stock form, the driver handles 8.4v no problem, it was actually made to be a 2 cell light, single or two cell.
For some reason the owner told me he decided he likes it as just a single cell light and won’t offer customers that extension option, but if you’d like to find yourself an old version X1, I can tell you how to make it into a 2 cell light.
He should still be selling the old version I think, might go this evening and check myself, this light I wouldn’t advise frankly.

Edit: Just looked and there are still old X1’s for about the same price as this new light, he’s say’s on this lights link now that it is listed at 15% off,,? Really
Then I glanced at the tints he’s using because mine is so yellow it really makes me rather ill and well no wonders their, it’s a 3000k, then he offers 4000k and then jumps to 6000k, not a great selection.
But dollar for dollar I really think you’ll get more with the old X1 as far as performance, this light is not running the way it could be, nice looking but that’s where it ends for me anyhow,
Also looked to see if he posted my feedback and he did, I do mention that breathing thing he had in my version and told him it’s not funny and bad idea, get rid of it.. ha ha
I’m the only one to post a comment so far and I really am curious what others are going to say, I can almost guess.

Edit: Well I know now that Paul is reading my messages, ha ha, glad I pulled one down,
