WOWTAC A5 NW (XHP70 G1 | 26650) in-depth vid review

 

Hey flashaholics, here's an in-depth vid review of WOWTAC's latest release, the relatively compact 26650-sized A5 w/XHP70 NW:

 

SPECS

NOTE: Above specs are for the CW version, this review covers the NW for which I don't have mfr specs on but expect output to be lower.

 

 

RUNTIME ON TURBO

*3,650 lms is for CW version, this review covers the NW.

 

=======

Disclosure: A5 kit provided by WOWTAC for review.

Great review!!
With regard to the included special micro USB cable you did mention that a regular one does fit allbeit not very snugly. Though it may not fit as perfect as the included cable does it still charge the battery? Do you have to wiggle it around to get it to make contact or is the contact fine but just a bit loose?

Thx! Yes, the other cables will still charge the battery but the connection is very tenuous, a slight bump (and of course this depends on the specific cable as well) can cause it to disconnect.

It’s amazing when they make graphs of output and flashlight body temperature. Thank you!

Sorry for my poor english.

Another fantastic turboBB review!

Any international vendors apart from Amazon?
