Imalent MS06 25,000 lumens

https://www.imalentstore.com/collections/imalent-flashlight-store/produc...

Looks like 6x XHP70.2, what cells do you think it is using?

I really don’t get it, how practical can this flashlight be?

I don’t think practicality is the point.

It looks like three 21700 or four 28650. It is as practical as you want 18,000 up front floody lumens from a TM06 size light to be. I will take one. 

It has been one year since Arlington police officer defended himself against a loose, charging dog. Someone other than the dogs' owner did Not reap the initial tragic consequences in this case. Usually it is an innocent victim that gets it.

3× 21700 would be neat!

Interesting to see how this will compare in size and weight to the Acebeam X80 or X80-GT. I’m expecting it to be more throwy than the Acebeam.

Imalent lights were never practical. They are designed to please the ones who on their second week of being into flashlights want to get the absolute highest lumens per size, so they buy it thinking it is the best out there. And then later they realize that UI, build quality and reliability are also important.

Very well worded, i could not express my feelings and experience of Imalent lights any better!

"Compact", to me, is any flashlight that has head diameter not larger than body diameter. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This item is kind of sort of cute, like a Pug or a Boxer.  I like variety. I just ordered a pencil beam thrower because it throws kind of sort of more than the 2,500 meter pencil beam thrower that I already have. This item probably will do 18,000 up front lumens, but not for a long time. Not for a long time performance is how I categorize flashlight performance.

I like the rifle cartridge analogy. I like long barrel .338 Win Mag and short barrel .458 Win Mag, even they are for two extremely diametric opposite ranges. This item may have less throw than the X45vn boosted 25,000 lumen light that I love so much, but it will be the successor to my 10,000 lumen TM06S vn 4 x XHP50.2 that I think is so cute due to its pure cylindrical aspect ratio. As soon as I see complete specs, I will decide if I will order two or only one of these highly controversial items to supplement and complement  my highly controversial Imalent MS18, highly controversial R90TS and two highly controversial MS03 that add oodles of verve, panache and elan to my oppressed life on the hostile surface of this overrated planet.

It has been one year since Arlington police officer defended himself against a loose, charging dog. Someone other than the dogs' owner did Not reap the initial tragic consequences in this case. Usually it is an innocent victim that gets it.

Description on that web page indicates:

Quote:
Everyone knows that IMALENT often produces “lumen monsters.”
This new little lumen monster will be ready to meet you

Some advantages here:
1. Can-sized
2. 6pcs XHP-70 2nd LEDs, max output up to 25,000 lumens.
3. 3pcs high drain 4000mAh 21700 Li-ion rechargeable battery
4. Six output levels

Waiting for being released, subscribe to us for more latest information.

Just wondering, how much current would each battery need to provide to get the “25000” lumens?
(Just theoretical math computation: assuming 25000 lumen divided by 3 batteries = each battery needs to power 2x XHP70.2 LEDs to 8333 lumens or 4167 lumens per LED.
To reach 4167 lumens per XHP70.2 requires ??? amount of current. Each of the 21700 battery will need to provide twice that amount of current).

Also wondering, would 3× 21700 (assuming 3x Samsung 30T) provide more power (max current) than 4× 18650 (assuming Sony VTC5A, VTC5D, VTC6A)?

The imalent ms03 runs on 1 (proprietary) cell and does almost 13K Lumens. It does plummet down very fast, but at startup it pulls 30A from the Imalent cell!

3 × 21700 highdrain batteries should have no issues running 25k lumens even if its not gonna top that.. i asume they will use 40T if its 4000mah

I have 7 Imalents and haven’t notice any problem with quality or realiability.
Maybe because they sit on shelves. And still haven’t lighted all of them.
I have three more on order. And now I must have this soda can. To shelf it.

Cheers.

It uses 3x high drain 21700.

It says so in the text right below the picture in OP’s link at the Imalent site.

Yup, but they added that info about a day after I made the post.

Hopefully any 21700 flattops will work, but I doubt it.

It should be throwier due to the much deeper reflectors, but will also be much less efficient due to fewer emitters.

More interesing here is the boost driver which power that beast. Is is difficult to drive one XHP70.2 with high currents so more interesting is how Imalent is achieved that high power here.

Very true.  Bought and sold a DX80 and never looked at Imalent again.

I’ve been using Molicel P-42A. Just about the Samsung 40T equal and a wide top that protrudes past the cell wrapper.

“flashlight can be quickly charged with the three included 4000 mAh 21700 Li-ion power batteries via the magnetical USB port.”

Wonder what “magnetical” means in this context?
Perhaps a Tactical-Magnetic?
Or perhaps Magneto’s powers magical power source?

This is the first (as far as I know) 3×21700 light.
Be interesting how it feels vs a 4×18650. Which I fine a little too thick for comfort.
I like the SP36 with 3×18650s size better.
One of these days someone is going to scallop out all that metal between the cell bays and make a really nifty light.
That weighs less and has great grip.
All the Best,
Jeff

Very true.  Bought and sold a DX80 and never looked at Imalent again. 

The DX80 can sustain 7k real lumens continuously. The driver is also nicely regulated at that level. For the longest time it was the recod holder for max sustained lumens and still is for this size range. People need to understand turbo is for momentary usage and should be seen as a supplemental feature to the practical modes. Turbo on most flashlights usually last from 30s to a minute because the heat generated is beyond what the flashlight host can safely sustain, which is why it is called turbo. You cannot defy physics.

That is actually how I use my DX80 the most, the 5000 lumen setting (closer to 6000-7000 ad you stated) is good for 2+ hours. That setting has helped me quite a few times during power outages / working in areas with poor lighting. If I remember correctly, unfortunately, the MS18 doesn’t allow you to toggle the fan at lower levels so it doesn’t have any real continuous improvements at the higher levels (ie 10,000 lumens).
