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

So if it can only do 20000 lumen continuously, you’ll just get two Smile

If I’m paying $749 I would want 80 cri LEDs, a bigger battery pack (21700s) and 15000 lumens continuous output.

$750 bucks? No. After the x40 unbalanced cell charging fiasco mess i lost trust in Acebeam long ago. Wish an active fan or not, its unlikely this light can sustain 40K lumens for minute or less without thermal problems.

Hm why so negative? If the Olight x9 which claims to run 25k passive cooling at about 5m or so why i kinda doubt the x70 would run only a minute with active cooling the highest that would been kinda the most pointless light ever for such pricepoint imo.. Since it has 3 fans it must be like 10-15m or so otherwise its a letdown sure..

Many of us had a lot of headaches with Acebeam (when they were known as Supbeam) of the X40 charging problems, which never got fixed, and i had to strip the charging circuit out of my X40 to make it stop draining the batteries before i gave it away, and a price of 750 + bucks is not going to cut it for this thing.

i remember both of those models were affected. The X40 i had ruined one of my cells by draining it to 1.4 volts after sitting just a month with that bad charging carrier.

Ok what. How did Acebeam not immediately refunded you the price of the battery pack and try to fix the issue as quickly as possible?

I would be heavily pissed if that happened to a light with a non replaceable battery pack, especially in Canada where 18650s are rare.

All they did was sent a replacement carrier for the light that was supposed to be fixed, with a weird “ 6.2 volt” USB power supply adapter. (which didn’t fix the problem, so i gutted the charging circuit & gave the light away.

Wait, they put a series switching parallel BMS inside of the battery carrier? This what I’ve understood from the research I did.

That is a dangerous idea.

Yep, all the charging circuit was in the carrier itself, and it had some seriously bad parasitic drain and balance charging flaws they could not fix. Never bought another Acebeam since.

I love acebam brands.. i got 14 of them, including x60, x65, t30.. i dont like the battery pack on t30, and x65.. battery pack are not modders friendly..

Acebeam should atleast offer without the battery pack.

Reason why I joined budget light forum was trying to get budget lights that can perform as good or better than big name brands. $750 definitely isn’t a budget light in my book…
Not saying I can’t afford it, it’s just not worth it.
If I spent $100 to mod a $120 light to preform better than a $400 light, that’s a win for me.

who said the x70 is a budget light? it was never intended as one either… but yes u can get less lumens for far less money then that for sure. This light is hard tho to get something similar for budget price since it has so crazy amount of lumens even the imalent dx80 doesnt stand a chance and + active cooling bumps up the price, i think acebeam went in hard on this one to show that such light can be made and it sets a bar for next one to dare reach 40k+ lumens…

I’m just stating my reason of skipping this one. I’m here for budget lights.
I like big lumens and cooling features, but not with this price.
I’m sure there will people calling $750 is a budget light or a steal for this light tho…

Well, MSRP is $750. It will probably sell for a bit less than that as per usual with Acebeam .

I have no idea when it will be released.

I am just guessing if they ever had a x70 group buy, it would be around $521.

Sorry to rain on your parade but I already bought the last 6 pieces on stock right before you. Ms. Newman from the Acebeam sales dept. made me such a good price…I couldn‘t resist. Silly

I hope they use better cells in this battery pack, unlike the X65 which comes with NCRB, ridiculous for a $550 light

I thinks he’s wondering why it doesn’t come with the higher capacity NCRGA, rated at 3500mah. I agree, a light at that price should use the best possible cell, considering it’s probably less than a $1 more per cell for them.
