I’m thinking about putting up a youtube vid to explain Acebeams attitude.  Never did it before, but I feel they deserve to get bad press this time.

Please klrman, I wish you would! They deserve it!

I’m not capable of doing that LumenMax as I’m technically challenged. Sad All I can say is my example is totally wonky using 10440 cells but works normally with NiMH cells.

As stated, I bought this light to use with 10440 cells and it doesn’t! I’m bummed because it doesn’t work with them as advertised!

I would be willing to ship this back to get a replacement but I still say Acebeam’s customer service is crap! Chinese New Year’s aside, they still won’t answer my emails even when C.N.Y. is now over.

Why do we here on BLF let them still advertise here when they won’t even answer several emails and others have the same problem?

I wonder if the problem isn’t the light, but rather your batteries.

What brand of 10440 are you using and where did you get them? Cheap cells might not be able maintain the current this light requires which could cause the behavior you described (inability to stay in turbo for more than a second, etc.).

Also did you buy button-top 10440 cells? If not, then your cells might be making very poor contact, which could also cause the behavior you described.

I have a UC15 that I emitter-swapped to XPL HI. Works just fine with Efest 10440 from Mountain Electronics. My 10440s were flat top. I soldered pieces of copper on their tops to convert them to button-top.

Thanks for that Firelight2 but if you read through this thread, I already stated I used button top 10440’s and in fact, I used the same 10440 Efest cells you used!

It’s just crazy that a manufacturer that WON’T answer a simple email to a customer here, they SHOUDN’T be allowed to advertise here!

Sorry, but I think ACEBEAM should be banned here unless they come aboard and answer all these complaints directed to them.

I’m curious about this as well. I have a Wowtac A4 and put in some cheap Zanes 18650’s and the light wouldn’t work on turbo. It would flash on and return to low mode. Just couldn’t handle the amps required for turbo. Could be a legitimate problem. Seems like the NIMH work ok which leads me to believe that is possibly the problem. Hope things work out or have worked out.
Edit-The Effest should have worked. That is odd. Guess there are just bad lights. I got a Haikelite that was bad. Took 3 months to rectify. Good luck.

Best company I ever dealt with was Thrunite.  From the four Thrunite lights that I owned, one was defective and they didn't hesitate to offer a full refund or replacement right away.  Not so many companies around like that anymore.

 

Acebeam is on the other end of the spectrum, as they refuse to reply to even a simple question, not even a warranty claim.  Talk about a company that doesn't care at all about their customers in the slightest. They do make awesome lights though overall.

Thanks for the replies! I’ve decided I’m not going to let this die until Acebeam comes aboard here and answers why they at least don’t answer emails?

Gebe. They claimed that they didn't receive your inquiry. Send your email to both info@acebeam.com and sales@acebeam.com and copy me. I'll PM you my email.

and received a reply a moment ago,
Seems to be a breakdown in communication between OP and Acebeam who responded quite promptly to me.

Same here an hour or so ago, a very polite response in a short time.
