Will you offer same pricing for non-UK distributors in Europe? I have seen prices of EUR 319,00 here in Germany whereas YowCha! offers the K75 for GBP 225 which is about EUR 245 only. There are no customs / tax charges that may need to be taken into account.

UI is a little sluggish to me. Not as fast to change modes or go straight into moonlight compared to my other lights— whether it’s driver VN, Anduril, or Zebralight.

Hotspot and corona are big, around the same size as the hotspot and corona of the Cat6 with XHP35 HI. A very useful and thick beam. I have not taken it outside yet.

Heat is well managed in eco mode. 4 minutes of turbo (3000 lumens) and the light is just warm around the e-switch. If there is any thermal regulation ramping going on, it’s very smooth subtle— can’t really notice anything.

In power mode, turbo gets hot instantly. By 1 minute in, it’s nearly too hot to hold, and the thermal control starts ramping its output down. The 3000 lumens seems very usable, while the 6300 turbo is just a ‘lemme show this to my friends real quick’ type of mode.

I’m not sure why the heatfins half way up the taper of the head, the placement makes no sense. Aesthetically it’s cool, but the heat doesn’t spread to the thin shell holding the reflector in place. It first starts at the shelf of the LED around where the switch is at, and then goes towards handle first. I would have preferred something more like the way Maxtoch does it with the XPro, where there’s a solid chunk of fins just below the reflector. Not having the fins half way up the taper would make the light less top heavy as well. The ones around the button are thick and deep though, and do a good job.

weird such big beefy head and it can barely just manage 1 minute highest? 6000lumens isnt that high u think for this size no ? it should be able run a few min highest without heat issues imo..

If I had to guess it’s pulling over 100 watts on turbo. Not even something like the BLF GT host can handle the CFT90 when driven to such levels for more than a minute or two, according to Vinh’s site.

BLFGT4 with all of its fins would be more appropriate, but that was designed for 4 emitters. 4 SBT90gen2s driven to around 4500 lumens each for 150ish watts total might be interesting for that host.

This is my next light. The person who supplies all of my Acebeam lights has not gotten his hands on one, yet. (USA)

Factory beamshots are nice to look at, but I like beamshots that are not posted by the manufacturer. These two, plus posted specs, are what I use to envision what the beam performance/beam profile looks like.

There are two modified items in this size/performance/emitter classification that I agonized over for many months, tossing and turning and thinking about pulling the trigger on, that I skipped. This item, however, is a Buy Now for me. My supplier emailed me an hour ago in response to my serious inquiry, and told me he will let me know when he gets his hands on this dedicated throw monster.

Normal people walk around with big dogs. They look normal. I walk around with big flashlights. My flashlights have bitten less people then Teds' dog.

I feel criminal using the K75 in urban environments. Whereas with the T21vn I could point it around discretely without flooding everything around the hotspot, but with the K75 it’s like I’m just barfing out light everywhere in the general area I’m pointing. What a monster.

In these pics I’m pointing at a face of a parking garage 700 meters away. Camera settings were locked at f/2.0, 1/20sec, iso 640 for all 3 shots.

control:

t21vn:

K75:

The T21vn decently lights up the middle part of the face of the parking garage, and barely the tops of the trees just in front of it.
The K75 lights up the entirety of the garage’s face, wraps around it to the right side, lights up the trees in front of it, lights up the trees in front of those trees, and the spill completely lights up the tree that’s about 20 feet in front of me to the left in the foreground.

Could you post more beam shots please? Also, how does the beam stack up against say MF04 or blf gt? Would you say it hits 1.5m cd as advertised? I own a K70 and am seriously considering buying a K75 when it becomes available here.

Twisted Raven- what are the actual dimensions? I’ve seen several different specs.

I think this will be my next thrower based in your beamshots.

The dimensions on acebeam’s website seem accurate. Maybe I can take a pic of it next to some popular lights? I guess the most popular ones I have in my collection would be E07, ROT66, CatapultV6, and TN40. I don’t think people like the plunger style lights as much, but I sure do!

I’ma try to hit a local park in the next couple nights to get some beam shots there. There’s a bridge in that overlooks a river valley.

I will have my Acebeam K75 this coming Wednesday. I will definitely compare it to my BLF GT, MF04 and W30.

Awesome! Please include the RT90TS in your pic too if you happen to own it as part of the comparison… or any high output thrower like the X65/mini or TN40S. (As far as the impression and adrenaline you feel once you power it up to turbo!)

So about 1.8MCD at 13:81? Can you explain what the time means in the three pics?

Thanks for the test, very interesting.

Mine arrived today and I made a little video of Unboxing. I also add some photos.

Woa looks like K75 has beaten the bucket head by a significant margin.

What does that translate to in candela?

Can you lock out the K75 by loosening the tail cap or body a half turn ?

Thanks for comparing the lights. However I would much rather see a comparison between the Astrolux MF04S, which would be a better light to compare K75 to. The MF04S has an 70.2 and not a 35hi.
If Acebeam wanted to immediately de thrown the Astrolux and BLF GT, they should have made the k75 with active cooling. Just saying.

Me love lights lonng tyme!
