I would like to swap the leds for neutral+okCRI ones, but that will be kind of expensive: $90 ShockedParty

But I really really dig this light!

For finding humans I think. You know you can trace semen and blood with UV light.

So 1 minute in 22k lumens or 3 minutes in 11k lumens then stepped down

Is this because of temp and can it be bumbed up?

I know the X45 has temperature control. But according to Maukka’s measurements, the temperature in the X45’s head reaches almost 100 degrees Centigrade… Stupid hot.
My guess is the X80 has similar temperature control.

22,000 lumen is about 250W, and the lamp seems not much bigger than the Q8 (it weighs even less, 330g vs 404g for the Q8!) that with its maxiumum of 70W really needs a stepdown at 3 minutes or it gets too hot to hold even at the battery tube.

So 70W 3 minutes for the Q8. About triple the power for the X80 resulting in a third of the time of 1 minute to stepdown. Makes sense.

I edited the above post: the Q8 even weighs more than the X80, 404g vs 330g (both without batteries)

Dang. 330 grams is really light weight. The Imalent DDT70 was “accused” of being light weight, and that thing weighs 427 grams… Not too long ago people were complaining that powerful lights stepped down after only 5 minutes or so. Today we’re at the 1 minute mark…
Regarding this 1 minute value and the whole weight thing, I can only imagine that the X80 gets significantly hotter than what’s good for you. Just with the X45 where a temperature close to 100 degrees C was observed, this is one way of obtaining longer time before stepdown.

The XHP50s are under driven so that will create less heat plus they are XHP50.2 so even more efficient at lower amperage. I wonder if 22000 lumens is total output or if that is just for the XHP50s

But the lightweightness hugely adds to the portability of this light. If you are willing to accept that everything above 2000 lumen is a limited time burst option, you do not have to carry around the enormous chunk of aluminium that buys you the extra two minutes on turbo ( and makes your cooldown slower as wel).

Absolutely. There is no such thing as a wrong design here; Acebeam knows what they’re doing, and it’s indeed about choices and knowing what the light is going to do.

ugh i’m so close to buying another acebeam flashlight, and i’d like for it to have ridiculous lumens like this but…

the RGBUV leds are a total miss i don’t get that at all.

purchasing their lights is obnoxious: they won’t do a group buy. they do list on amazon in US! buuut then they removed the last mega light (X45) from amazon after about 2 weeks. and probably this like is gonna be $500 and at that point…. boy it better be right. this RGBUV stuff needs to go at that price point.

honestly if it is that much (another problem with them – hard to find out how much the damn thing even costs) then i’d pass anyway.

keep it at $250, don’t put any weird useless leds on it, make it bright as hell, and make it where i know how much it is without begging someone to tell me, and easily accessible.

Agree.

I have a suggestion for Acebeam:

Instead of the RGBUV led array in the center put a single XHP35 thrower in there, (or any single emitter/reflector for dedicated throw). Of course leave the awesome 12x CREE XHP50.2 around it.

And make them work independently or together.

Then you will have the perfect flashlight with the best of both worlds: a wall of light flooder with a built in thrower… and EVERYONE will want one! Wink
