Yep… extremely “Ridiculous”. Thumbs Up

One would have to either be a true moron… OR …work very hard to be that “ridiculous”….. as far as I am concerned anyway.

In this case I have no earthly idea which is the case?? Facepalm

Fenix have sent me a 1000 lumen PD35 V2.0 for review, I’ve measured it on my lightbox at 1018 lumens ANSI with Samsung 30Q and 1088 lumens ANSI with Ampsplus Q30.

It would have measured 600-800 on my TA tube.

My TA tube had been reading very accurately. My ROT66 219B measurements has been very close to what Maukka and others measure. My TK01 measures exactly the same as Mateminco specs, which is exactly 2,215 lumens on turbo.

What a meaningless and unfounded post. “It would have…..”.
Prove it, don’t guess.

If you can’t prove it, why even say it? The only reason I can think of is just to stir up negativity. In other words “Trolling”.

Maukka got multiple readings from the ROT66 219B after I pointed out an anomaly to him. I get a similar anomaly with my convoy S2+ lights and thats that’s why I won’t order one off him.

My Fenix PD35 performs very differently to each battery used to test it, I was expecting the opposite.

So far I’ve recorded between 1018-1102 ANSI

Finally received my calibration lights after 12 weeks in the post. I’m sure it was misplaced as the light boxes were completely soaked and the shipping label was barely visible. Amazing it actually arrived.

Just want to thank TA for an excellent job on my Lumen Tube. Tested it against Maukka’s lights and it was only 8 lumens too high. Used another small strip of tape and it’s within 1-2 lumens on both lights. Not going to bother getting it closer.

Great! Really glad to hear that these have panned out to be as accurate as they have been overall.

I still have one sphere available if anyone is interested.

That’s good to hear. Do you know what correction factor that equals out to for your tube?

If it is possible, I would like to have the last one of the 3,5” tubes, the number 27. Is it possible?

Had an opportunity to use my Texas Ace Lumens Tube in a short review HERE.

And it was dead-on accurate with Zebralight's spec.

I replied to your PM.

I was technically sold out but I looked through the leftover parts and realized I had enough parts to put together 2-3 more if I order the missing pieces. I should have 2 or 3 that can be put together if anyone else wants a last shot at these.

Have any of you tested a stock convoy L6 since calibrating off Maukka? Just trying to get an idea if my own numbers line up with others Smile

Sorry, my L6 has long been modded.

If you want to send a light my way I would be happy to take some readings and send it back if you want.

I’ll charge up a couple 30Q’s and test for you. Before I received the calibration lights I wasn’t getting more than 2850 lumens and at that time it was reading slightly high.

I think the consensus was the CW was around 3100 to 3200. The NW was a bit less. These might be older readings, I’m not sure.

My L6 has long been modded. I did just recently buy a Thorfire S70S and test it out. It should be very similar in output to the L6 since the current draws are very close. I measured it at 2930 to 3000 lumen depending on the battery I used. Link is in my signature.

Okay well, I am getting 2825 so I guess that’s right on par. I was just really not expecting it to be that low. Thanks for the data men!

Maybe TA could change the name to the lumen heart breaker tube. I know it’s broke mine a few times. Sick

That’s about right.. I have a l6 from skylumen.. one single mode and it read 3100 lumen.

Those were exactly my thoughts when i took my reading, thought there was something wrong with my lumen tube. Thanks for sharing your result.

I should also point out that my tube is not a TA one. It’s one I made, which I think validates the idea that were all heading in about the same direction.

Is your result at turn on or 30 sec?

I get just above 2800 at turn on & 2770 after 30 sec
