I like the 14500 format for a EDC flashlight.
This seems to be a nice EDC light but $40 bucks is a little step, I’ll wait for a discount code.

Why are the runtimes on NiMH half of that of alkaline? That doesn’t seem right, unless NiMH produces more light output.

25 hrs on low (1 lm) with NiMH seems very short as well. Utorch UT01 runs for about 80 hours at that level.

I have some serious questions about the driver if an alkaline battery gives twice the runtime of a NiMH and a 14500 gives four times the runtime. What’s up?

I don’t know about the runtimes, didn’t run a test myself, but this from gchart’s thread , about the 14500:

gchart wrote:
Factory Specifications table has been updated. Which leads me to…

Ponderings & Pure Speculation: the spec and measured runtimes on 14500 seem to match up too well. My measurements were spot-on to the minute with the specs. How on earth could my High runtime test end just before 181 minutes (like 180.5 minutes), with a factory spec of 3 hours (180 minutes)… that’s too perfect! And battery voltage still being at 3.19V afterward? Likewise during the Turbo test… it cut out at 63 minutes, ending with the battery at 3.14V. Spec is 3+60, exactly my measured time. I’ve never seen a manufacturer time the cutoffs, so perhaps it is purely coincidental. Or is it?

I might need to re-run a couple of these tests with different batteries (such as the 900 mAh Soshine ones I have sitting around) and see if the times are consistent or if they change.

Agreed, a little pricey, but I like the switch function (very similar to the i332).

Long press from off goes to turbo, if on then triple click for turbo

I’ve one here:

To turn OFF: Hold (for a second, definitely not the two seconds from the manual)
To turn ON: A short klick.

To change modes: Short klicks
low – mid – high – turbo (then low – …)

There is a shortcut to turbo:
From OFF: Hold
But to turn it OFF from the shortcut: A short click.

I wish it would be one click for off.
I don’t know why this is mixed up

But it’s a nice little light and I see I can get used to the UI.

I just noticed Wubens visible range illustration in the first picture. I really like it.
Normally if I see an ANSI range I divide by 2 and 3 and that gives me a real usable range.
It seems Wuben did the same for the first mark: 130m/3

The only way I would pay that price is if they offered it in a warmer tint. Dont care if its an XPL V2, XPL-HI, or Nichia.

Although im starting to notice that my nichias have nasty tints at lower power levels.

This is an honest question: if the OP does not post a link for a sale, even if “it” is a flashlight manufacturer and even if the thread is about a new flashlight they wanna promoted, that is considered – under the rules of the forum – a commercial post?
I don’t want to derail the thread, I’m just asking for a clarifying answer about this subject! Thumbs Up

The Forum Rules seem clear enough to me. Wuben have also posted a request for reviewers in the Giveaway part of the Forum. Again, this is inappropriate – it isn’t a “giveaway”, it’s seeking to promote their products through a review.

From the Commercial Seller note:

IF YOU ARE A COMMERCIAL SELLER:

Please make only a few threads in the Commercial Sellers’ Spot category. If in the future you want to let us know about new products and offers, please make update posts in the same few threads. For example, you could create one thread called “CompanyXYZ.com New Flashlight Products” and another called “CompanyXYZ.com Current Offers and Coupons”.

Perhaps this flashlight could be offered without the fancy battery to bring the price down a little. I agree with Moderator007 that the current price is not a good deal.

That would make shipping easier too. Id be very open to that.

Why would shipping be easier without a cell included?

As long as there the cell is inside of the light, not outside, shipping cells inside of the light should prove to be absolutely no problem.

There are all kinds of lipo shipping rules with airlines now. Most of Wubens stuff comes from overseas and I hate the slow boat.

From what I know, if the cell is INSIDE of the equipment, or the flashlight in this case, it is perfectly okay for the light to be shipped via air.

TLDR: If the batteries are inside of the light, there are no problems regarding shipping.

No worries – I generally look at BLF via Recent Posts without commercial threads, so am maybe oversensitive. Innocent Rest assured, if a manufacturer has a new light to promote, it won’t be long before it appears in the non-commercial posts.

Looks like it’s going for about $25 right now, but I am still puzzled by the runtimes on NiMH vs alkaline.

Pete, The run times are best with 14500. I did tests with 14500 VS Alkaleaks VS Enoloops. Alkaleaks should only be used in emergency. Total waste. Especially leaking in good flashlight like this one.

My question was about the difference in runtime between alkalines and NiMH. Wuben shows that runtime on alkalines is twice as long as on NiMH. I find that strange.

NiMH kinda drops like a rock once depleted. Alkaleaks slowly fizzle to almost nothing, and probably still let it light up even if down to that 1% ANSI spec or whatever it is.

Eg, my bobofett light (Microstore’s R22) will keep wringing out an AA alkaleak to zero. It won’t start up unless it “rests” a bit to build up some starting voltage, but will dip down to well below anything remotely considered even firefly mode before finally giving it up.

My SP10s, though, will abruptly start blinking a few times and then quit for good within seconds of acting weird.

For 2×AA lights, my SF13 will do the same, act weird and then abruptly quit, whereas my LuxPro will at least try to keep the light going a while longer.

Those are just using alkaleaks with their sloooooowly but gradually ever-shrinking voltage. NiMH, as I mentioned, will hold a pretty steady voltage until it just falls off a cliff and dies suddenly. And it’s already starting out at 1.2V, not ~1.6V.

That’s one (and probably the only) advantage alkaleaks have over rechargeables.
