Interesting but the link doesn’t work and I can’t find anything on AE if I try the search. How many emitters does it have? 4?

I like it but I am leery of the new Haikelite’s. Had an SC04 that I bought during a GB that was DOA. It would definitely be dependent on price. Looks like 5 or 6 emitters based on the reflector (What you can see). Hopefully this is the 5000K version.

Yeah.

I really hope this uses a real quad MCPCB.

And the design looks really… generic for some reason.

Proprietary chargers are a no-go for me. Same for barrel connectors that aren't technically proprietary, but that I'd have to match voltage and current and connector size/polarity etc.

 

Edit: working link 4 emitters and $69

If I didn’t have more Q8s/DC7s than I know what to do with, I’d definitely be in for one.

I’m a little leery, though, about ironing my hands from the heat. That sounds a trifle painful.

What the hell are they thinking using a proprietary charger!!? This would have been a winner if it used usb charging instead

Umm, that’s a pretty big-ass charger. So imagine charging all those cells inside in 2hrs vs 12hrs or more.

I’m actually okay with it as-is, as long as it’s not some proprietary-size barrel connector.

Whups, I take that back. Pic of the charger shows it’s 2A only, so 12AH (say, 4 30Qs) would take ~6hrs from dead to topped.

wall charger seems weird.. usually its for lights that running 8 × 18650 or something like the bigger search lights olight,acebeam etc has.. 70$ doesnt seem that bad, it can be a hit or miss when it comes to them.

...where Frugal meets with Flashlight!

Just to clarify, that’s an actual charger, not power-brick. Ie, the charging circuitry is built into the brick. CC is limited to 2A, CV to 4.2V.

The NexTorch nylon-body 18650 light with charger has this (the 2×CR123A doesn’t). Just a plastic shell to hold the cell, NO electronix inside, just a connector for the wall-wart to supply the CC/CV friendliness to not make the cell go boom.

Only thing I’d be afraid of is if the (necessarily) direct connection to the cells from the socket would be exposed to, say, salt-water, metal shavings, etc. That would Truly Suck™.

So the switch light is turned on in standby mode correct? And does it ramp all the way to the brightest mode?

What type of driver does the MT40 use?

I know it says it’s a constant current driver, but is it linear? Buck? Boost? Buck-boost?

hey guys,

I saw on AliExpress in Haikelite Store a MT40: “Haikelite-linterna LED CSLPM1 de 6500LM, 4 lámparas, 6500 lúmenes, noved”. What do you think about that? Is it worth any attention? It claims 1400m of range (which I can believe in, because I saw what my Convoy L21a can reach). And why the description is in spanish? Sound a little bit suspicious, but it really got my curiousity and attention. Thinking of ordering this light.

AX has a totally f’ed up site. If anyone posts a link to a product on AX, and that person has his language set to spanish (or german, or tagalog, or…) and you click on it, then guess what? Now your language default is set to that, too. And sometimes it sticks and sticks and sticks and takes several attempts to reset it.

Towards the top there should be something clickable like “go to international version” which does something like switches from es.aliexpress.com or de.aliexpress.com to plain ol’ www.aliexpress.com, and maybe that’ll reset the language, but then you still might have to reset the language (and currency) to english/usd, maybe a few times.

Ironically, you might have to read spanish/german/tagalog/whatever well-enough to find that “go to international version” label.

 

As for the MT40, unno. Ain’t got one.

I checked that out and it’s just Spanish for some reason regardless your language setting. Always use English anyway.

I don’t know. Ain’t too expensive, ok beamshots, but what is the true performance then.

I really like this renewed MT40, new button, new faster driver, usb-c charging and that version with Osram LEDs for a range of about 1400 meters with 6500 lumens has to be a show, there is nothing like it on the market, and less at that price. I have the first version, with SST40 LEDs, and I highly recommend it, this new MT40, with the improvements and in its version with Osram LEDs at that price seems like a bargain.

A taschelampen user has received the MT40 with the Osram, here you can see, it looks very good:

According to my post office tracking MT40 PM1 is in my country already, so I’ll have it at least in 2 days. I’ll take some photos of beamshots and compare it to Convoy L21a with osram emmiter and to zoomie Haikelite HT35. These are the best throwers I own.

Mine will take a little longer to arrive, when I have it maybe I will also put some photos comparing it with the original MT40 with SST40 5000K, with the Astrolux MF02 (XHP35 HI NW) and with the Fireflies T9R (CULNM1).

here are some beamshots of Haikelite MT40 with osram PM1, compared to Convoy L21a with osram NM1 and Astrolux EA01 XHP50.2 (to show the intensity):

and diy homemade amateur measurement of turbo stepdown time, Room temperature – 23 celcius degrees. My measurement shows that after 3 minutes it gone to somewhere in medium-high mode. I can’t say it was burging my hands, it was just a little bit hot or very warm.
