Lumintop ODF30 – a first look

 

Hello my dear friends!

 

this "review" is not really finished, but i hope you can get a first impression and maybe ask me things i can add later

 

lets start with looking:

the flashlight arrived in a nice cardboardbox

really nice size

compared to the well known “C8 Style” and the smalest 26650 flashlight i own, a DQG Tiny 3th

and beside its cell (not included)

a look into the frone unveils a Cree XHP70.2 LED, a OP reflector and a ARcoated lens holded by a flat bezel

a lot cooling fins and the rubber sideswitch (RED LED for undervoltage warning underneath)

on the tail end the lubed threads are square cut

and show a variant to the usual spring in the tailcap

Same construction in the head

therefore the light is picky with the cells…
66mm is too short (needed a 1mm neodym to contact)
70mm is too long (was dented a bit on the positive contact)

tube on the front end has regular threads

a picture of the included user manual

some white wall shots & power meassurements:
f/2.2 | 1/50sec | ISO 200 with Huawei P9
Amps measured with clamp meter and bench power supply @4,1V

OFF 0.002A parasitic drain (jumps to 0.001A)

ECO – 0.019 A

LOW – 0.2 A

MEDIUM – 0.745 A

HIGH – 2.45 A

TURBO – 7.45A

low voltage warning :
came on 3.0 V (red flashing LED underneath the switch)
light shuts OFF on 2.5 V (red LED continues flashing – but power consumtion is only 0.003 A)

conclusion so far:
+ i like the ODF30 for the size and simplicity – which reflects in a good, achievable price!
+ 3500 Lumens seem reasonable
+ nice alround beam
+ working LOW power safety
~ the red flashing LED can in theory suck the cell into death in some months
– picky on cell lenghts
– no USB charging (maybe in a later model)

perfecto! 8 lumen low mode better than 150 anyway, even if it is hard to access.

press and hold from off to start in ECO

(instead of short click to turn on)

double click for turbo and strobe while on

On the banggood.com description it states that it is USB rechargeable? Just checked the official website and no mention of USB there…sigh…

That ugly tint shift… LED fault Smile
I do not see any competition for TC20 here.

Brief introduction and cell compatibility

the new ODF30 has some 4-8% higher output as well

Ordered one already. Hopefully will be here sometime next week. Got a brand new high drain 26650 waiting on it. It was also quite a bit cheaper than the TC20.

I received my lumintop odf30. Great light. The light is about the same size as thrunite tc20.
I did the ceiling bounce using shockli.

Lumintop odf30. 171 lux
Thrunite tc20. 194 lux

Lumen are consistent. Both are cool white. I like odf30 better, more cool white.. tc20 have hint of green..

It comes 3400 lumens. TC20 actually has 3,800. Mi 70.2 does not like it because of the uniformity of color. I am waiting for the HI version without a dome. Write a few words about the interface comparison of the two flashlights.

New version coming out with a charging port, think they are trying to rip the Olight look.

Martin,

That looks nice any chance of a NW emitter?

Hopefully the new version with charging port will materialize soon.
Can compare with the Rofis MR70 which to me is the most versatile light that I have at the moment
