Two of these, boosted a little bit, one in each hand, should yield 100,000 lumens of brief yet exciting burst. That will do nicely, until even bigger comes along.

I'll stick with my DX80.  Bump from 32,000 lumens to 40,000 lumens is going to be negligible to the eyebut the dx80 coupon price of $216 compared to what acebeam is probably going to charge for this won't be negligible to my wallet

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

3 seconds.

In all seriousness, most likely only long enough for a few short bursts. This lumen race is at the point where practicality is a fair distance out the window.
I’d rather tote 1000 lumens for longer runtimes, than this thing. If this is to be used for say search and rescue, it would be useless with dead cells in no time. And if it were used at lower levels for the entire search, a smaller light would have sufficed from the outset.

With active cooling and a 8-cell pack you should be able to run 1000 lumens longer than any other light on the market right now. I mean the nice thing is that modes below 40000 also run cooler.

The light looks nice. But I suspect that English speaking customers are one of their primary markets. If they put as much effort into their light as they do into their English written material they have a problem.

Hmm, I just found this thread.

If anyone here is interested in learning about some other lights with active Cooling, I started a thread on a bunch of different models over here.

For that MSRP of 749 and so many competitors coming out biggest flashlights, it should be at least custom light and let user choose the tint.

cool i'll see you when you get there

Works out to around $1,150 CAD with customs duties and taxes in.  A hefty price for a flashlight.

You are paying for that sustained high output. If 7k lumen continous is okay for your needs, buy the DX80.

If you need 20k continous, this is the only light on the market.

(I’m just guessing at 20k, it’s probably much more than that)

Until acebeam post specs, we really don't know what sustained output is.  My guess is that it may not be that great otherwise they would have included more details on their website.

I think they were shooting for 40k lumen for 30 minutes. But like you said, we won’t know for sure until they release their specs.

I threw some math at it a while back and came to the conclusion that 40k for 30 min is in the realm of being possible.

If they can do those figures they will control the whole market where something like that is needed without carrying a massive battery pack along.

There are other markets out there besides the flashlight enthusiast. A city may have no problem buying dozens for their search and rescue teams. Think about how many cities there are in the world that have the big budgets to buy them. We may see SWAT teams, private military units, fire departments, police departments, etc… all buying them.

There is already a lot of people buying the BLF GTvn with CFT-90 for $675 and that light is not as impressive as the X70.

If the light is reliable and performs adequately, then I can certainly understand the price. It will be a one of a kind light with no other light coming close to its performance. But not for me thank you.

The Astrolux MF05 should be competition for it, but it is a ways off.

Yea I agree the price is fair for the heavy R&D they invested to produce such a one-of-a-kind light and the premium quality. For government/military use, the price is a steal. My City gov buys chairs for $1,400 each and 60” Toshiba 1080P for $60,000 each and the quality is mediocre. Lol.

We really want to know the runtime on the 40000 lumen..

If the x70 can run 40000 lumen for 30 minutes, i will pay $1500.
