Acebeam has their W10 which is very similar.

It is an LEP design.

I’m hoping someone comes out with a LEP zoomie. That way you wouldn’t be limited to the tiny dot of light in the distance as your only light option.

However, apart from the cost I can see one issue that might complicate a LEP zoomie: the need for the little right-angle reflector in the center of the lens. The purpose of the reflector is to divert into the side of the bezel any dangerous coherent laser light that passes through the phosphor. Without that reflector some laser light might escape presenting an eye hazard.

  • In a zoomie with the lens moving back and forth there is the possibility that the reflector might become misaligned or the user might remove the lens. Either case could result in dangerous laser radiation escaping the light.
  • The reflector also takes some space and would limit how close the lens could retract to the phosphor. Without close retraction, the flood beam might not be very wide.

Nevertheless, Acebeam did mention that they are working on a LEP zoomie, curious how they are going to solve that reflector problem. Let’s wait and see Smile

Actually no. They said they were working on a zoomie and didn’t explicitly confirm it was a LEP one.
I hope it is. But seeing how they ignored my request for clarification I think it’s not.
