No idea on price yet. They are exhibiting this at IWA in Germany next week. https://www.iwa.info/en/ausstellerprodukte/iwa18/exhibitor-32962487/acebeam

I bet it will cost an ungodly amount of money… But I would love to have it though. I would even add another set of 18650 cells to enable longer runtimes, those xhp 70.2s will be very hungry.

wow, what a powerful light. someone just mentioned active cooling for portable flashlights and there it is!
If I’d only justify spending an absurd amount of money for a flashlight…

Definitely looks interesting. Acebeam told me they will have a 5000k NW version this time.

I just hope the fans are quiet. Usually small fans are louder/whinier

How long does the light run at 40,000 lumens before thermal stepdown (or do the batteries drain before that happens)?

A ring of 70.2s around a central 35 with a deeper reflector, isn’t that exactly what the MF03 was supposed to be, which seems to have stalled now?

Beam me up!

I agree it will be an ungodly amount of money. On the other hand the X70vn could be even more Wink

It could be pushed to 70k lumens and beound. There’s not much of a noticable difference in the human eye at a from 40k to 70k lumens. The toll on the 8*18650s will definitely be noticable though.

The Imalent DX80 at 32k lumens is a contender but Acebeam has a reputation of reliability and customer service beound Imalent.

The MF03 and the Olight X9 will also be a contender. The Olight is shooting for an April launch.

I’ve been surprised by their price before, but if they make this thing right where the first deliveries work unlike their competition in Astrolux, and it can actually produce 40k lumens until the batteries are the limitation, then I don’t see why they couldn’t charge whatever they wanted. At the very least, they could do that until they have competition because right now no one comes close to 40k continuous.

The low mode should be lower.

That comes pretty close to the size of the GT Party

link to djozz tests 

“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”   (Gus Speth)

MF05 might be aimed to be a direct competitor to this light…

Not sure if it will be direct competitor. MF05 will have 7x XHP70.2 whereas X70 will have 12x XHP70.2.

More is my guess. The name behind it makes it evident. Not meaning it will not be good, it will not be practical.

Yes. I am pretty sure x65 battery pack could use in x70 head.. also both x65, and x70 could turn to shorty ( 4 cells).

How can it be both air cooled AND waterproof?????????????

Of course when underwater it doesn’t need air cooling, it’s then water cooled Smile

Maybe the fan isn’t harmed when it is submerged even if it goes into a full stall due to the water?

Just thinking out loud…………

Well, when snorkeling with this fan-cooled light, the fan will now propel you in the water so you don’t have to wear flippers!

5000 lumen each led this thing will melt away in 45 seconds on full blast!! Tired

Knew Acebeam was gonna make something like this. We actually have a light with active cooling for once! Seems quite promising but I’m confused as to why they didn’t use 20700s.

It keeps costs down to reuse X65 parts.

The low mode should be lower.

And you are thinking separate cells in a carrier.

Super hi performance lights like this will not be able to do it that way. From now on, I believe, we will only see lights like this with integrated power packs with welded tabs and built in BMS boards.
