*** NEW *** Manker MK39 Ranger. 2018-05-22: New video!

Manker MK39 Ranger
$200 (according to Tony Chen, CEO of Manker on Facebook)

4 × 18650
1 x XHP35 deep reflector for throw
2 x quad optic (so total of 8 smaller emitters) for flood
6000 lumen (non official spec): 4500 lumen flood + 1500 lumen throw
170000 cd (non official spec)

(source: http://forum.index.hu/Article/showArticle?na_start=0&na_step=500&t=9021327)

Looks awesome to me. Cool
Notice it says “MK38” on the light, although it’s known as the MK39.

There are several new flashlights atm that combine a XHP35 thrower with additional flood light, but this looks like the best and most useful one to me: compact with 4×18650, comfortable with a good handle with switches on top, and I assume 2000 lumen throw plus 8000 lumen flood! I trust Manker to have made a good thermal management and a well-thoughtout user interface but I’m not 100% with the Manker styling. I would not mind at all to own one of these Smile

I think the result of this is that there are different ways of execution of this combination, so we will have new different and more unique looking lights.

I’ve always liked the look of a handle on such a light, but never was a fan of a handle design with integrated buttons. It’s ergonomic, but I don’t like the idea that you cannot remove the handle.

That video was worth it if only for the German-to-English CC translation. Big Smile

Shouldn’t be a problem if they use XP-L HD or XP-L2 emitters on V5 or V6 bins. Even the Emisar D4 can pump out more than 4k startup lumens.

Despite the light looking very interesting, I won’t buy another Manker due to the awful UI. Grouping turbo with strobe modes is extremely annoying. That’s why I never use my MK34 despite I like the design so much. I should have paid more to get the MK34vn, which has a UI to make the light usable.

Can’t you just send it to Vinh?

You are telling the world in various threads that you will not buy any more Mankers until they ‘fix’ their user interface, so that makes me feel inclined to tell the world that I fairly like the Manker UI, they really did a lot right I believe, when in use it works supple, you can tell that they tested it out and finetuned the timings, what even high end flashlight manufacturers sometimes fail to do (i.e. Jetbeam E40R Facepalm ). They just made a choice that you do not like and there will be others who will be particularly happy about turbo in another group (but ready accessable). Personally I’m neutral about that choice.

Wow, I could use one of these on the boat. The thrower to find the dock from off shore, and flood to pull into the slip.

This light reminds me KLARUS RS80. Similar concept, but MK39 looks better & much smaller.

That certainly looks like the best way to combine flood and throw with an actual good sized reflector for the throw part.

Dont think so. It could be much smaller if quad optics was placed in the center right above glass lens.

That would make shedding the heat out of them quite difficult without affecting the thrower beam.

It’s beautiful. It’s got that typical smooth/curvy Manker design that is uniform across your brand. My regards to your designer.

Exactly my thoughts on this.
A cross/mix between Blackshadow Terminator and Fenix TK76.

I like the design, A lot. Looks bloody good to me.
Still handy&compact enough with plenty of output.

Would like to see test results, especially regarding actual output & throw. (and UI Smile

Cheers
Nico

Looks like they will offer two versions for the 8x LEDs …XP-G3 or Nichia 219 Thumbs Up

UI on this looks awesome, dual switch – 1-click quick access to either throw or flood, with ramping on both. And both can be active simultaneously.

This is an awesome design and I applaud Manker for doing it. I’d buy this in a heartbeat if the price is reasonable!

I like the handle also, like Blackshadow Terminator. Thumbs Up But I didn’t like the 2nd version Terminator when they removed the button from the handle.

Looking at this light and imagine it without the handle, because of it’s shape, it doesn’t look like something you would want to use without the handle, so I’d never need to remove it.

I don’t see the need to remove the handle at all. The handle is much comfortable to hold on than holding the fat battery tube.
I wonder in what situation do we want to remove the handle?

cool i'll see you when you get there
