Not sure what was wrong with First post.

They said to be working on 18650 EDC but i dont expect it to be a zoomy, not my kind of light. Sad

Haikelite HT08 mini.

pictures taken from Haikelite website, i hope they dont mind. Big Smile

dont know what to make of it. Why called it mini are they also working on HT08? a C8 style flashlight?

Interested to know more about this light. Not many decent neutral white compact(ish) zoomies around. Is it forward or reverse clicky, and what is the mode order?

I like my Ledlenser P7.2, but not its purple tint!

I have one of this under way, I will post a quick review when I receive it. It may take some time though, as I'm in Brazil..

I’ll probably pull the trigger on this with a GB gift voucher I won on the other forum!

I see different pictures of the tube, is it like a SK68 type where you pull the head?
Or does it come with different tubes?

Looks nice, but that seems like a really long stretch.

I think I read somewhere that you have to twist the head to zoom in/zoom out, but I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks Barkuti

Is it optional or does it come standard with 2 tubes?
Since it it on flash sale at GB now, but it does not say anything about it, and i think the 18350 tube looks way better

Haike I know that you listen to me when I suggest you some stuff…

I like that mini light light.

Please focus to offer host version of this and remember that acrylic lenses(let B158 be your refference) are far better and resilient than glass one.

Glass AR coated lens maybe look good but they ain’t… At least one you have on China market…

Get on right track and made nice small light with all mentioned and take Ultrafire business as an example (they will offer host at fair price of any light from their arsenal).

Modding is making something how you want it to be, not how it comes stock...

Just received this light. The light is smaller than I thought. Since this light uses a Fresnel lens, it is more compact than most Zoom flashlight. The Fresnel lens is under an AR coated lens and this light accept protected batteries (I was able to fit a protected 26F around 70mm inside without any issue).

Overall, I like this light.

Rings do not bother as much than cheap aspherical lens.

Got mine today

Good copper DTP MPCPB, but not enough thermal paste IMHO

I removed the stock driver to make it DD only (only bursts with that kind of flashlight for me) and put an XP-L HI instead of stock HD

Compared with my FET driven Dedomed XP-L C8 :

No numbers, sorry I don’t have a luxmeter.

The form factor is nice, I love the fresnel lens much than an aspheric though the HT08 doesn’t collect as much light as my B158B aspheric zoomie.

HT08 on the left, B158B on the right (dedomed XP-L and DD) both with 30Q

"Hey -X3-, do you have a flashlight ?"   "-X3-, can I borrow one of your flashlights ?"

Same here.

So, it ‘stretches’ a really long way.
That means the lens has a long focal length.
That means you lose a lot of light when focussed.
It also means a tight narrow beam with a small projection of the LED.

I ordered one too, but it’s not in yet.

..waiting for parts..

Still looking for 5” parabolic reflector (for recoil light)

This is about 2 feet from green wall. As you zoom out they go away but are back when getting out to full zoom out.

And yes, you have to turn the head forever it seems like. This light sure seems like it should put out more lumens.

My only experience with zoomies is a Cometa….that I like.

Thanks for the pics, X3 & chooma. Just ordered one, with that DTP board, I just need to replace the stock driver with my extra BLF A6 and done.
