thought it worked also as a powerbank, like the older model:

too bad, it would have been an interesting feature. Also bad choice for the cell and the price seems way too high…

The low mode should be lower.

Just received mine, might make a review later on.
First impressions:

Flood mode gives the typical even brightness that zoomies do, however it is slightly smaller than my led lenser p5r.2 which is about 60 degrees when fully zoomed out.
In spot it also doesn’t zoom as tight as the led lenser, with a bigger corona around the square die image.
Edges have a significantly yellow tint, while the led lenser is almost all pure white.

UI sucks, there are 4 modes then strobe and sos or blink and you need to cycle through all of them.
To turn on and off you need to hold the button down for like two seconds.
At least it has memory so you can just leave it on high and not have to see strobe when you want to turn it off.

I wish the host was just a few mms bigger diameter to fit 26650 cells, since it is significantly thicker than 18650 size.
The build quality seems good though, nice finish on the outside and smooth one-handed zoom.
Will be fun to mod this thing.

Does it also work as a power bank? What kind of input/output (type-C) and how many amps max charging current and output current?

Yeah it’s also a power bank, I will have to test it more to figure out the charging current and stuff like that.
