I’m glad it uses USB-C! However there is still a glaring flaw… How should I set it down on my night stand?

If I set it on its head, there is no crenelated bezel. I may accidentally leave it on…
If I set in on its side, it may roll away…
Setting it on its tale may be the best option, but not the most stable…

Crenelated bezels and anti-roll designs are some basic things that light manufacturers used to incorporate. I feel that in many ways we have digressed. Now I sound like an old grouchy man, but until these basic things are fixed I won’t be buying this light… Sorry Crying

You could just look at it and see if it’s on before setting it down. Works for me.

Can you get to Turbo through two quick clicks from the LOW-MID-HIGH modes? Because it does not follow from the diagram. If so, being in Turbo, one click returns us to what mode?

Click on the name of the flashlight and you will see its spectrum of colors:        ANSI WHITE
BLF Q8 | Emisar D4 | Emisar D4S | Lumintop GTMini | Lumintop SDMini | Maglite Mini AAA | Nitecore TIP CRI | Noctigon Meteor M43 | Skilhunt H03Thrunite TC20 | Thrunite V6 | Utorch UT01 | Utorch UT02 |

Looks just like the ODF30 but I think they made the diagram a little confusing. Double click to turbo from low, mid, or high. Then single click to get back to last used mode before turbo.

Yes, you are right.
Turbo can be accessed by two quick clicks from low, mid or high (any one of them), and one click from Trobo will return to the previous output level. For example, when you get into Turbo on Med, then another one click will return to Med.

When will this flashlight be available for purchase? I love my Lumintops so I can’t pass this one up.

What is the real average throwing distance of this Lumintop ODL20C? The advertised distance is max 860 meters which sounds high. The all new Thrunite Catapult V6 is just above 750 meters of throw.

We will only find this out when it is released and someone does real world tests.

ODL20C is now available on our Lumintop online (China): lumintoponline.com
and will need some days for Amazon.

I just received the light – first thing measured the throw – it is within the marginal mistake vs. spec – 1519 lux@11m, i.e. 183K lux. I find the quality impecable and knurling both interesting and useful. Sits quite heavy in hand, which I equal to solid and feel as a good thing. Overall very happy with the new toy. My only gripe is I cannot find matching quality holster – could have been a nice touch in the package.

EDIT: I cannot open the bezel by hand – looks like glued, which is not my favourite approach

I received mine too…. The build quality is very good, however the glued bezel is a pain in the neck.

I’m not a fan of cool white emitters, so want to swap it out. I wish manufacturers would stop doing this!!!!

The reflector design also could be improved.

Thanks for this info. Then the Amutorch JM70 is the better thrower.

Well, it is more value and nominally it throws little further, but with half of the lumens and 1,3 cm larger head. In my books it is a different type of light.

Both are throwers. XPL vs XHP35.

Hello, I’m trying to decide between this light and the ThruNite Catapult V6 XHP35 HI while they’re both still being offered for the same price. Can someone who already received the Lumintop tell me if you can access turbo from off or do you have to turn it on first? How long can it sustain that mode before stepping down? Also is it press and hold to turn off like the ODF30? If yes, then how long do you have to wait? One second or more? Thanks in advance.

Thanks, that’s good to know. So does that mean the bezel on the Thrunite isn’t glued? Is it just sealed tight, not even any loctite?

I had no choice – Trunite do not ship in EU and did not want to pay the 20% premium from hkequipment. If you make 3 fast clicks from off on the first click light turns on, then with the other goes to turbo, i.e. it is like a shortcut for turbo. Long press to turn off is like 1,5 sec. I will measure the stepdown tonight and will write here.

I see..so if the total price for both lights were exactly the same, would you have picked the Thrunite instead?

Not sure – on one side TN has NW emiter, which is a big plus, on the other side I like the brand Lumintop, the aesthetics and the slight advantage in performance of ODL20C. Would have been as tough choise.
Also it was generally tough to choose to buy any of them, since I have Emisar D1s, Amutorch JM70 and Olight M2X. The only “excuse” was the XHP35 emitter.

I have played with the light with my water pipe “sphere”. Please do not take the absolute numbers of lux readings as lumens, as I am nowhere near the good calibration – just the relative numbers matter. Measures are taken every 30 sec. and I have switched on and off a fan to test the temperature sensor. Double click re-activates the turbo and step down looks like combination of timing and temperature – on second turbo activation (@35 min) light was actively cooled. Battery (Liitokalla 26650) was fully charged in the beginning, and after all this “test” it was 3,4 v.
