Body and materials

The Lumintop ODF30 is a compact and lightweight flashlight. Inside it hides a 26650 battery and the big and voracious XHP70.2. The thermal regulation system prevents the torch from reaching too high temperatures. If the heat exceeds 55 ° C, the output will be reduced automatically. The torch is well finished and treated in detail, the materials are of quality and the thicknesses are adequate. In the hand gives a good feeling of robustness and excellent workmanship.

 

The head has two series of dissipation fins that allow to dissipate the heat produced by XHP70.2 very well.

The Bezel in stainless steel and protects the lens. The lens has anti-reflective treatment, it seems to have a thick thickness and looks good. Lumintop declares a transparency of 99%.

The orange peel reflector provides the torch with diffusion characteristics.

The side switch allows you to control the entire interface thanks to the intelligent UI of the flashlight. It is made of rubber, surrounded by a steel bezel ring, quite protruding, very precise, offers excellent tactile feedback and at the pressure it emits a loud click. Under the power button there is also a led indicator that activates if the cell voltage falls below the 3V threshold.

The central body has a polygonal working with protruding parts that allow to have an excellent grip in any situation. The anodization is well done, perfect on the whole torch, it also helps in the grip.

The threads are anodized so I allow the physical lock out with the classic ¼ turn of the tailcap. They come well lubricated, they are very precise and flowing.

The Tailcap is flat and allows the use of the flashlight in the tailstand. Also this presents a polygonal processing that helps in the grip. Also there is a small ring for inserting the laynard.

At the negative pole we have a special gold-plated tongue that simulates a spring, while at the positive pole we have a golden, sturdy and resistant spring (this allows the use of flat and button cells).

The lettering is really minimal but still well done. We find it only in the head with the company logo (a bunny), the word "Lumintop" and the model of the torch "ODF30".

The company declares the impermeability to 2m depth and a resistance to impact from falls of 1.5m.

In your hand the torch is very comfortable, you hold it well, the button is easily tracked even in full darkness and using gloves.

Other shots….

 

User Interface

General mode: Low-Med-High (with memory);

Hidden mode: Turbo, Eco and Strobe.

  • ON/OFF: Single press for on, press and hold for 2 seconds to turn off.
  • Output selections: With the light on, click to cycle through Low-Med-High.
  • Turbo: With the light on, quick double clicks to enter Turbo, another click will return to previous general mode.
  • Eco: When the light is off, press and hold the switch for 2 seconds to enter, another press will cycle through Low-Med-High.
  • Strobe: Under Eco mode, double quick click the switch to enter, another click to exit.
  • Lock-out function: When the light is off, press and hold the switch for 4 seconds till flash to enter, loosen the tail cap to unlock if needed. Under lock-out statues, the light can only lighten up on Low until released when press or click the switch.

 

Beam, Tint e Beamshots

The ODF30 beam is well studied and gives the torch diffusion characteristics. Nevertheless it tends not to disperse in the darkness and to remain focused enough.

The shot is good, with its 3500lumen the ODF30 manages to illuminate even over 100 meters away). Lumintop declares 19600cd and 280mt of maximum shooting. The beam is uniform, does not have particular color changes or artifacts. The tint despite being a Cool White (at eye about 6500K) does not mind. Obviously, for personal tastes, it was neutral I would have preferred.

Below you will see some beamshot on the average / long distance. The Eco level has not been taken into consideration given the very low brightness. The distances, for greater accuracy, were calculated using a telemeter.

Conclusion

This Lumintop is one of the smallest, most compact and powerful EDCs with 26650 power I've ever handled. There are many aspects that struck me, first of all the power output (the 3500 lm, although inevitably will tend to decline rapidly over time). Secondly, I was struck by the excellent regulation, as can be seen from the previously reported runtime curves.

The presence of an Eco level of 8 lumens, although not a real firefly level, is always convenient and in this case thanks to the 26650 battery power allows to reach over 250h of runtime.

Perhaps a bit inconvenient access to the Strobo that provides the transition from the Eco level, as well as access to the Turbo only by flashlight on. I would have preferred direct access to these functions, perhaps with the classic double click for the Turbo and triple click for the Strobo, but these are just details and personal tastes.

I like the beam geometry and I think it particularly usable for different types of scenarios.

The tint is a Cool, to eye on 6500K and it do not mind. Personally I feel very satisfied with this new Lumintop.

For me Torch promoted!

What do you think about it?

 

Ps: sorry for my english, i hope i did not make mistakes

I’m close to pulling the trigger, I would just like to know the battery sizes it will accept. I’d like to use the Shockli 5500mah which is a bit wider than most. Is it possible to get an exact inside diameter measurement?

Nice review & great pics. I would appreciate if you could do compare beamshots between Rofis MR70 & ODF30. It is very hard to see actually Tint, brightness & a beam pattern without the comparison beamshot.

hi...you can see my review on CPF Italia of the Rofis MR70 Here . You can compare "Beamshots del Main LED (Low-Mid-High-Turbo)" of MR70 with "Beamshot #1" of the Lumintop ODF30.

In my review I found that the parasitic drain was 0.05Amps. Could you check that? I just unscrewed the tailcap to meaure when turned off and measured between 0.02A and 0.05A. 

 Edit: I guess it's my reading... I just can't understand how to read my DMM.. It just says 0.05

ok i checked...the parasitic drain in my ODF30 is 51uA (0,051mA or 0,000051A) .

With a 26650 5200mAh battery the teorical runtime is 101960h  (4248 days or 11 years) XD

Hmm. Maybe i jist didnt read it good enough. Are you sure it's not 0.05A? Smile

Hi there, great review! I am keen on getting either the Rofis MR70 or the Lumintop ODF30. Wich one do you prefer, and why?

I am leaning towards the Rofis MR70 due to the USB port and the included battery. But it is more expensive.

BLF Q8, BLF A6, Wuben T102 Pro, Wuben TO46R, Convoy L2, Emisar D4, Skilhunt S3 Pro, Rofis MR70, Nitecore HC60.

I had an extremely negative experience with the Imalent DX80 so I avoid all Imalent and anything resembling Imalent. Rofis MR70 reminds me of Imalent. I would choose Lumintop ODF30!

I will ask, out of curiosity, what is wrong with the imalent? I’ve never had any lamps from this producer, that’s why I’m even more interested.

The minor thing was that the supplied charger will fail. Every one of them whether black tip or yellow tip. You will need to purchase a laptop charger from eBay or Amazon to replace it. The major thing was that my DX80, after a couple of uses, and me treating it well as a shelf queen (no abuse; not even drop or bump against any object; even the lens was smudge-free) it ceased to turn on. The battery pack was fully charged because I swapped it out with another DX80 (I used to be a big Imalent fan; even to the point of going on YouTube and liking every Imalent review video) and it was not the battery pack nor connection. It was obviously the electronics in the head. This is not anything I could do to fix it. I venture that even a seasoned modder would have a time figuring out after getting the head open due to the electronics.

Long story short: I got an RMA from Shellen at Imalent and carefully boxed it up and shipped it with a local Chinese courier (located on Valley Blvd. and Del Mar Ave. in San Gabriel Valley, California), that my wife and I have used multiple times without fail (I am Chinese myself). Imalent claims to NEVER have received my RMA package.

$300 lost. Imalent? No more Imalent for me. Anything resembling an Imalent (electronic click instead of a depressed button) is out for me too. I lost well over $300 for nothing. “Thanks” to Imalent.

After such experiences, I am not surprised. I would be very disappointed myself. On the basis of various opinions, I have removed a few companies from the shopping list. Such a forum is a treasure.

Wow! A really useful & detailed review with lots of useful information & visuals. Hope you get the opportunity to review other upcoming flashlights too.

I have the Rofis MR70 since a month. Very happy with it. I use it while biking at night. The UI is great. I use the triple-click strobe occasionally for a couple of seconds too. So much brighter than a car headlight even!

The Lumintop ODF30 is similar. The cheaper cousin. It is priced well if compared to its more premium & feature rich cousin.

I note that the thermal/timed output runtimes of both are quite similar at Turbo & High.

I love this picture heavy review. Actually, flashlight review should be picture base. The picture with test images gives the clear idea about that flashlight. Lumintop has produced some quality tactical flashlights http://totalguide.org/best-tactical-flashlight. The 3500 lumens means higher brightness. I am thinking to get this one.

Very nice review Lock. Thumbs Up

Can you explain how you measured the lumens?

I have a JoshK sphere and all my lumen measurements were about 13% less than rated.

Also, have you tried to look at the driver or switch? They seem to be glued.

My Convoy L6 thread with XHP70.2, Texas Avenger FET driver, Narsil v1.2 ramping firmware (old), lighted side switch and cut down SMO reflector. Lots of amp draws on stock driver as well. 

My Supfire L5-S thread with XHP70, Texas Avenger FET driver, NarsilM v1.0 ramping firmware and lighted side switch. My mini L6!

Yes, I have some doubts here as well.

I recently got hold of the Rofis MR70 and the brightness factor doesn’t seem to be much different considering the near total flood the beam throws out.

The Lumintop ODF30 seems to be more brighter in the centre due to formation of a hot spot making the beam a bit throwier but sacrificing some useful floodiness… most perceptible at its high & mod nodes, rather than turbo.

Waow! Great review and great photography in the wild.
Right now i’m in the Mercantour parc on the other side of the Alps.
It must have been cold!?

I like this light a lot, although it seems to be very very floody – almost pure flood?
Could you show a white wall beamshot?

Thanks again! Thumbs Up

Since my last post I recieved my TA Lumen tube and TA recieved some measured lights from Maukka (he has a professional integrating sphere with calibrated reference lights). So we should use a 0.68 correction factor on these tubes.

I measured my ODF30 a bit earlier using a 0.7 correction factor, but that’s still very close.

Brightness levels are roughly:
Turbo 3150
High 1500
Med 500
Low 140
Eco 5

What I’m most interested in is the turbo run time before it starts to ramp down. I got about a 1m 37s before it starts to ramp down. It’s pretty hot to hold at this point. So I’m not really sure how lock is getting two and a half minutes. Maybe yours just getting a lot hotter than mine before stepping down?

Maybe it’s battery related? I see that the black KeepPower 5200mah has quite a bit more voltage sag than the Liitokala 5000mah cyan that I’m measuring with. Maybe this increased voltage sag means it’s delivering less amperage to the emitter so it heats up a little slower?
