My last arriving uTorch UT01 NW 5000K 3D from Gearbest was different from the earlier UT01 NW 5000K 3D I got.

The difference is that in the box it had a Lumintop warranty card and the light had a ugly greenish tint (in my opinion if I compare the one that I had before and the new one).
Atleast with the old one a white wall was white when I shine on it.

As soon a saw the color of the light I put the UT01 back in the box.

The only difference I can see externally between them is that the UT01 text at the tailcap is smaller on the new light.

With the Lumintop warranty card inside the box of the UT01 I hope they didn’t mix the LEDs up and that ugly led tint (in my opinion) should be in this light.

Can 6mm x 1,5mm tritium tubes be inserted in the 4 grooves in the head ? It seems like it was designed for it.

I also have one shipping from GB, hope I don’t lose in the tint lottery like you did.

Obliviously they are both made by the same company or in the same factory. I really like the magnetic tail of the Lumintop, it looks like a real nice flashlight.

You know, if you actually took the time to interact with the forum & explain Manker’s side of some of these issues you would be far more likely to build some loyalty among customers. As it is, your constant one word shots without any further explanation is one of the reasons I refuse to purchase any further products from your company.

If you can’t behave like a professional, why in the world would I want to support you financially? Want my patronage? Stop acting like a child.

This looks great. I’m also a fan of Lumintop after their involvement in the BLF GT project. Only thing I wish for is a sublumen mode. I use that a lot on a light this size.

The EDC05 certainly is a nicer body design than Manker could do. No Cartoon images on the button or Wank marketing mode names.
Your representation of the Manker name is why I do not patronize your products.

If I didn’t already have too many UT01 lights I would certainly buy this nice looking Lumintop version.
Thank you for the Review Steel

The stated runtime seems amazing unrealistic. Let’s do some math Smile

  • Cree XP-L max efficacy = 161 lm/W
  • 400 lm for 1.2 hours = 400/161 W * 1.2h = 2.98 Wh
  • 200 lm for 2.2 hours = 200/161 W * 2.2h = 2.73 Wh
  • 60 lm for 11 hours = 60/161 W * 11h = 4.10 Wh

A brand new Eneloop Pro stores 3.0 Wh.

Conclusion

  • the 400lm runtime is possible only with 100% efficient LED driver – this is unrealistic
  • the 200lm runtime, if it was true, would be really amazing
  • the 60lm runtime is simply impossible with nowadays AA cells

I am going to put this flashlight on my aaflashlights.com todo list…

Curious… Does the EDC05 have a programmable mode setting like the UT and E11?
