Lumintop E05C - Where can I buy it?

Where can I buy the Lumintop E05C? Click

Please note that while it looks very similar to EDC05C, it’s specs are quite different. Especially the side light.

The only place I can find the E05C is on the Lumintop site, but no shop seems to sell them. Not even the Lumintop shop on Amazon.
An abandoned product?

More likely a brand new flashlight. Lumintop’s web site stores images in directories by date. The E05C images are in a 2020/1 directory: “http://www.lumintop.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01”.

More Photons!

Then I’m goning to wait.
The front output isn’t that much different but the side output differs greatly

Just my opinion – I don’t think the side output is going to be all that different from the EDC05C. The advertised lumens on the E05C are actually about what the EDC05C seemed to test at, in reviews… I think Zeroair’s review had the side light ~400 lumens, and Flashaholics had it around 220ish? Lumintop’s measurements seem to differ a good amount from what reviewers test the output at, but I would guess its going to be pretty similar in output to the EDC05C… just speculation though.

Do you have the links to those reviews please?
Shame the spec sheet of the new light no longer shows runtimes for the side light

That’s because the runtimes are supposed to be the same for both the front, and side light, at the same levels.

Here’s the Zeroair review: https://zeroair.org/2019/04/03/lumintop-edc05c-flashlight-review/
and here’s the Flashaholics review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WvaQnSxX91g&

I had posted a thread on the E05C in the main light forum – I’m thinking that what they most likely did is got rid of the boost driver, but kept similar output levels via a buck driver? I wouldnt be surprised if the high mode (main emitter), now turns on around 600 or 650 lumens, but heats up more than the EDC05C, and drops more quickly with battery voltage, to where your output is more dependent on cell charge. Maybe the side emitter will function the same on its high mode now, but I wouldn’t expect it to be massively brighter than the EDC05C

500 lumen is enough for me. I own their Tool AA and rarely use high (360)
What I’m really after is the 175lm to 260 lumen side upgrade.

Reading time Smile
