Wich headlamp is the best?

Acebeam H30, max 4000 lumen
Also the heaviest and most expensive headlamp of the collection

The imalent HR70 is the second brightest headlamp(max 3000 lumen), it’s also one of my favorites because it’s light and nicely build

No doubt, I’m a new colllector and they caught my attention right away. Just added a emisar d4v2 to my collection. Liked it so much I had to order another. Such a awesome light. Also love my fireflies e07.

I have procrastinated listing my lights here, but I decided to go ahead and do so, while both me and the human race are still alive.


1. Four-Sevens MMU-X3. Oct. 2014, 1,600 lumens. I did well selecting my first real light, this permanently classic item will be forever beloved by flashoholics. In its time, this light boldly demarcated the division between lights that were smaller than it, and lights that were larger than it.
Nice beam profile, too. There is no way that I could have picked a better item at the time.


2. Niwalker MM15. Nov. 2014, 5,233 lumens. Selfbuilts’ review of this item had me utterly transfixed for weeks. I could not take another contented breath until I had it in my hands. No classic collection is complete without this ground-breaking hand-held floodlight.


3. Eagletac SX25L3 kit. Feb. 2015, 2,375 lumens, 317 meters. I got this because Selfbuilt always included it in his comparative tables in his reviews, and because of its power/size ratio. I love its “gadgety” feel and I also love the Eagletac build style/quality.


4. Noctigon Meteor M43vn XP-L dd. June, 2015, Approx. 7,400/8,400 lumens. Oozing gob-loads of cachet, this light will forever have its place at the pinnacle of true classics.


5. Thrunite TN36UTvn. Jan. 2016, 13,400 lumens. The ceiling bounce monster of its time. I edced it for a few months. That’s how excited I was about it. My most “beat up” light, from work horse use.


6. MM15 MBvn. Feb. 2016, 9,000 lumens. The must-have successor to the original ultra classic MM15.


7. Olight S2 Baton. Feb. 2016. 1,000 lumens.  I edced this light for four years until very recently. Much used,  never a bobble.


8. Acebeam EC50vn, May, 2016; 3100 lumens. The item for max power in its size in Spring 2016.


9. Eagletac MX25L4Cvn XP-L pdt kit. July 2016, 5,000 lumens. Nice beam profile, provided by the four non-overlapping reflectors. A great looker, too.


10. Fenix TK75vnQ70. Aug. 2016, ~16,000 lumens. I used it every night for a few months, and I am thrilled by it every moment. Currently the oldest light in my “A” list use line-up.


11. Acebeam K70vn. Sept. 2016, 2,471 lumens. Autumn 2016 is when I surprisingly became amazed at dedicated throwers. I bought it just to have such an item, and I instantly became thrilled at what the beam does.


12. Acebeam X65vn. Dec. 2016, 11,500 lumens. I became super excited as soon as its specs were released months before the light itself was released. This light  has the beam performance that I always wanted from other lights that just can not do what this can do.


13. TN42 vn.  Feb. 2017, 2,400 lumens. The logical successor to the K70.


14. P60vn Quad XP-L HD 2 cell host Cryos Cu head. March 2017.  4,300 lumens from a light in its size class: Not bad at all.


15. Acebeam X65vn.  March 2017, 11,200 lumens. Not being content with the first one that Vinh got, I needed another one of these superlative beam generators for my other hand. Combined beam from both is amazing.


16. Manker MK34vn spec 5. April 2017, 7,650 lumens. In its time, it was the item that had the perfect balance of max power for its size.


17. TM06Svn XHP50.2. May 25, 2017, 9,800 lumens, In its time, it had the perfect balance of max power and runtime for its size. One of two modded thusly.


18. Acebeam X45vn XHP70.2. June 19, 2017, 25,000 lumens. I requested and received the KG Tuning specimen from Vinh. I used this light nightly  for 2.5 years for routine chores at the community meeting hall that I operate.


19. Imalent R90TS. July 16, 2019. 36,000 lumens, 1750 meters throw. 18x XHP35, 8× 21700 Samsung 40T, two fans. Beam profile similar to X65, but with a little more throw and some more beam width, and some more spill, with more lumens on the target at given range, but in the form of a larger hotspot. Currently the King of Power Throw. Huge beam performance and well-tempered beam profile from a very big light.


20. Acebeam K75vn. Sept. 3, 2019, 6,300 lumens, 2,500 Meters, 1.57Mcd. The logical successor to the TN42. More throw, and more beam width than TN42.  Currently the King of Throw.


21. Imalent MS18. Oct, 21, 2019. 18 x XHP70.2, 100,000 lumens. Huge power from a very big light. Currently the King of Flood.


22. 47s MMU-X3vn 3 x XHP50.2, Dec. 17, 2019, 5,500 lumens, 346 meters, 30Kcd. A true classic, brought up to current speed.


23. Nitecore TM9Kvn, 9 x stock XP-L2 6500, Jan. 6, 2020, 9,500/268 meters. My first “tactical” light, whatever that means, but that is not why I bought it. Power to size ratio is why.


24. Nightwatch NSX3vn Jan 27, 2020. Stock 3 x XHP 50.2 8,000 lumen, 375 meter, 35Kcd. A red hot screamer for its size. Throw is best of numbers 22 through 25 inclusive, too.  I am so excited about this lights’ beam performance to size ratio that I ordered three more. Even though this item is in a smaller size and performance class than the X45, I am using it for nightly chores around the facility instead of the X45, just to put it through its paces.


25. Nitecore E4K vn, Jan. 30, 2020. Factory 4 x XP-L. 4,000 lumens, 261 meters throw.


26. Emisar D4V2 vn, Feb. 22, 2020, quad W2.1, 4,020 lumens, 429 meters with throw optics. Single 18650. Midway size between S2 Baton and E4K. After four years, this is the replacement for my super trusty S2 Baton. 


27. Lumintop FW3Avn triple W2.1 Feb. 28, 2020, 2,800 lumens, 425 meters throw. Currently the most compact high power single 18650 flashlight, I think. The firmware has more personality than most of the people that I know.


28. Lumintop FW4Avn, quad W2, throw optic. April 13, 2020, 3,850 lumens, 456 meters throw. Currently the most compact high power single 18650 flashlight, I think. Picture perfect emitter alignment, providing for picture perfect beam pattern.


29, 30 and 31: Three Lumintop 21a Pro Vn, May 26, 2020, single 21700, triple XHP50.2. 9,500 lumens, ~350 meters throw. The next big thing in the Lumintop FW series.


32. and 33: Two Imalent MS03, June 15, 2020. Triple XHP70.2. Single 21700 protected usb-c, or with large solder blob. 9,535 lumens, 313 meters. Smallest triple XHP70.2, I think.


34. Mateminco MT07 vn 7 x W2. June 16, 2020. 8,000 L, 678 M, 115KCD. Very attractive combination of power, throw and size.


35. Astrolux (Mateminco?/Sofirn?) EC03 July 9, 2020. 21700 3 x XHP50.2, 6700 lumens, 303 meters. Factory specs appear to be under reported. Smooth, ample reflector wells and ample SS bezel impart good looks. Much tighter hot spot than other single 21700 3 × 50.2 lights.


36. Noctigon KR1vn SBT90 single 18650 July 24, 2020.


37. Emisar D18vn 18xW2 3× 18650 July 24, 2020. 15,500 lumens, 748 meters throw, in a 3 × 18650 package.


38. and 39: Two more Astrolux(Mateminco?Sofirn?) EC03, August 4, 2020.


40. Astrolux MF05 SBT90.2 8 × 18650 August 24, 2020. 5,000 lumens, 3,162 meters.

41. BLF GT94 Oct 19, 2020. 4 x SBT90.2, 8 × 18650 button top. LOP. After a four year wait, the first light that has both more throw and more lumens than the X65.

42. Another BLF GT94 Nov. 13, 2020. 4 x SBT90.2, 8 × 18650 button top. Smooth. Arrived 14 days after I ordered it. This one is so I can have one in each hand, and feel the exhilaration.

43. HK90vn driver VNX2. Nov. 14, 2020. 3 × 21700 40T solder blob top, 3 x SBT 90.2. 14,000 lumens; 1732 meters.

44. Another HK90, from FM BG. Nov. 19, 2020.

Ordered Nov. 6: MT90vn. Ordered Nov 11: FT02S.

Possibly next, if me and the human race survive long enough: Imalent MS06, Acebeam X65GT, Acebeam W60.

List of lights that I have ever sold or traded: None. I gave two new FW21aPro to friends.

Not to brag or anything, but I'm kind of a big deal to my flashlights.

Funny story. I have an Inova XS. That’s it. That’s the only flashlight I own, until the Sofirn order I just made gets here Smile

So, what I usually do when I need a light source is I either grab the headlight off my bike (a 200 Lumen Lezyne, which has never disappointed me — I’m told it has Cree emitters, but that information never meant anything to me before) or a two mode “Kootek” music stand light which actually works pretty well as a flood, even if I look like a dork when I walk around with it. I like this Kootek a lot for its intended purpose (it lives on my piano).

Anyway I really like the Inova XS that I’ve had for a very long time, and have taken for granted, and I went to buy another one. To my disappointment, guess what I couldn’t find?

Anyway, on the way from China now is a Sofirn order with a C01R, SP36 BLF Anduril, and SC31 Pro, and I also have a Wurkkos FC11 and a Lumintop Tool AAA on the way.

I had a power outage the other day and realized that I’m not prepared.

Oh, I don’t count these. In a box of other junk there’s a 2AA Maglite where I crushed the bulb somehow. and there’s some sort of tailswitch thing that has the brand of a battery company, which must have come in a 5-pack from Costco at some point, and 4 out of 5 of them quit working at some point. There’s probably a 5 D-Cell Radio Shack freebie from the 70s in a storage place two states away, if that counts.

Yeah, I’m looking forward to getting that SP36, and I’m happy that it steered me here to this forum and to Reddit r/flashlight.
