well... one of the 2 samples this one is the 70.2 has been in the US for about 48 hours mow and cleared customs over 24 hours ago.

I've emailed DHL support to see who would be the carrier that makes delievery as I hav e not seen a DHL delievery here in 15 years now.

I hope not USPS because that will knock out any chance of the expected delievery day of Monday. They are closed. UPS and FedEx are both working so still a  chance  it my bet is on Tuesday at best.

 

Soon as I have it I will post results as fast a I can complete them correctly.

Yes you can... Just be sure that when you purchase the 2 chargers you include in the PayPal message that you already have another and I would include the order reference number as well...

 

I will also let Dale know later tonight..

Deep blue seems so far the most popular color people want to buy. I hope the light arrives today so more people can quickly decide and order so all 300 can dispatch out fast end of month ?

...where Frugal meets with Flashlight!

I have talked with DHL as well as Dale both this morning. 

The 70.2 version is out on a delievery truck now and will be here by or before 5pm est.

 

Naturally I will not be able to take beam shots until after dark but, I will be posting light output and pictires that can all be completed right here in the shop.

 

After dark the real fun starts... and still as well as video footage will go up as fast as I can upload them.

 

I have a much better video recorder order ed unfortunately it will not arrive until late next week. But I can still get some pretty good footage with what I have

 

 

Stay tuned it could arrive anytime...

Hey terry, I can’t wait for your review. I bought one in xhp 70.2 and one in XHP35. Please test turbo runtime test too..

Okay guys the MT09R has arrived and I have so far just been taking output readings, I might be able to get a distance measurement inside the house but I would trust the results better outside so a little longer.

 

I am not going to tear the light down at least until all testing is complete. 

Here is the one thing I can promise you with out any doubt.

After taking out measurements 5 or 6 times then checking the calibrations of everything and checking again the lowest reading I got in Turbo mode is 15136 lumen and the best was the last one and that is after draining the cells a fair amount and it came in at 16297. 

 

So anyone that has any concerns about the light hitting the claimed output. Not only did it make the 15k promised it has gone past it.

 

IT will be dark in a couple of hours and very very cold for where I live. 

I will do a brief written review and a video review with beam shots. I will try to find something here to compare the output and distance. Not going to be easy but either way you will get to see all that I am able to show you..

 

I will get everything posted ASAP.

Nice to hear that, 16K lumens is a lot of light, but does it “feel” bright?

What I mean is I can run my L6 and meteor side by side and the L6 feels brighter, despite producing just half the lumens.

Cant wait for the XHP35 impression and review!

Hey terry, I assume you are using Sony VTC6 button top? If not, please let us know. This mt09r is promising and will sell great.

I can tell you thia for sure. Somehow it had been left in mode 6 when I got it. I'm  getto ng ready to turn it on and chek out the ramping and instead I got this massive amout of light that lit up my entire garage (that is my shop). Almost like daylight. 

It is extremely bright. I am past ready for the sun to go down lol.

I wanted to badly. The only place in the U.S  I could find any and get them here quick was Mtn electronics at a  it over 8 bucks a cell... I passed on that.

I'm using recently purchased and matched 30q's

Terry, thanks for doing this. Would you be able to check whether there’s any step-down in the maximum output, and if so, whether the step-down is based on time or temperature? (for both the 70.2 and 35 HI models) Thanks!

Im supposed to talk to Dale once their day starts. I will ask him about the step down, I remember him saying there is but don't remember the details.

Lol I can get them and should have planned ahead...

 

The 35 high version will be coming soon. I would like to have some for the side by side testing. Not sure if I can get them here that fast. And 8 bucks a cell is out...

So the cells were fairly drained due to previous turbo output measurements, and that’s when you got the max output of 16297 lumen? So you got this figure without charging the cells in between? So in that case the light is not FET driven (that’s what I thought initially)?

Texas Avenger pretty much means FET drive to me. But then again, I’m certainly not too familiar with driver designs. Battery configuration is 2S2P, so with three 6V emitters (70.2) in parallel you can have a FET drive. We’ll see. Thanks for asking!
