Oh it’s in there: *Dimension( mm ): 32(body) x 63.5(head)

I really like how they’re moving away from traditional designs, it shows how far Chinese manufacturers (I’m assuming they are) have come along. Now if they started incorporating more advanced electronics (hint: Zebralight’s UI), and managed to keep prices down, they’d cast a big shadow over the rest of the Chinese flashlight market.

The day that thing is driven over 3.0A is the day I order it. One of our fellow members and store owners here has been working on a production of this exact light except I believe he is going to have it driven properly, and is also coming out with a 3*xml version.

I’ll wait for him to chime in.

Thanks Moses,got my head in the clouds today,wicked sinus infection.I agree the newer designs are getting better and also side switch is sweet along with a hidden strobe,so no needless cycling modes to get through flashy crap.

Tell us when it is released!

I really like this design, and its side switch.

Sweet !

Please tell me/us something about the flashlight on the left.

I think I should start looking for a charger capable of charging 26650’s.

4.5A, 1500 lumens so the heat is manageable. I haven’t done much heat testing but I’m loving the build quality, the compactness and it’s flippin’ bright

Yes it will be in stock very shortly after a few things are smoothed out. I’m going to try to nudge Shadow to make us a 3.0A version of the JM26. Or higher? :bigsmile:

Jake, does the S-L3 put out a wall of light? Is it possible to reserve one?

Is the single emitter one, the one your pushing for 90k lux?
I’m looking forward to seeing which you get in stock first Jake. Smile

I’m glad I’m not the only flashlight collector out there, I was beginning to think I was strange.

I think the 90k lux one is the K40.
But I’m interested in the triple emitter one. It looks like it might have some nice throw along with nice brightness. But I do think that 1500 lumens is a bit on the low side for it, but I guess it wouldn’t make that much of a difference from 1500 to 2300 (king).

I just know that I want to get a triple emitter thrower, so big headed triple emitter lights really interest me. Something like the TK70, except not as expensive as the tk70.

Sorry to go on a tangent, do you have any plans for the Shadow TC750X?

As much as I’d love to throw 2.0 or 2.5A at the triple, it heats up to 85F on the outside body within 20 seconds. Even at 1.5A each, 4.5A total. For this small package anything higher and you’re going to burn your hands imo.

The SL3 Triple actually throws a bit better than the 750x using visual comparison. The hotspot is not bad on the triple. Definitely not as floody as something like the Dry. It has some throw to it.

The JM26 I just got word that I will be stocking a 3.0A version of the JM26. Throw is good but definitely not K40 level. Comparing against the K40, the K40 rightfully spanks it. But the throw is still very good maybe 50,000+ lux @1m. I’ll have to test this later.

For those who are curious these lights will have a sleeve for 18650s but your runtime will be shorter obviously. Also a magnet for the flat top 26650s that are out there included as well

Yep, I know that the heat is crazy. I can’t hold my king for more than 8 minutes on high before it really burns my skin.

Is there a price on the SL3 yet?
And will the modes be 100% – 30% – 5% and double press for strobe like the JM26?

Cheers

Most HD2010s here are about 3A-3.5A. Would be interesting to see how it fares against it, HD2010 being so far hard to beat for price/performance...

Can you measure the lux of the triple xm-l one?

Can’t the triple get a turbo mode? 1.5a per emitter is lame, due to effecientcy a triple at 1.5 each should produce less heat than a single at 4.5a, several reports of lights pulling 4+ no worries in even smaller hosts, check Foys long lived 980L out or many HD2010s

Accidentally added to the cart when I went to the website to pick up a few switches and such Wink …. wont ship for another week probably, ahh well: looks like it will replace my X9 :bigsmile:
Told myself I was going to get a T6 3C… ended up ordering a U2 1A, hopefully the de-doming will sort that out, only 9 in stock… hopefully I get one.

Anyone know how the dimensions of a STL-V2/V6/SN6×-2 reflector stack up to this? Looks like it may be the same size or larger then the STL-V2.

I like the design of this light. I’m glad to see that someone is leaving off the tail clicky. There are too many flashlights with those and to see a new model without it is welcome by me.

My Zebralight SC600 is my EDC and I love it. It has a useful UI and plenty of power. I wish ZL would make a light like this JM26. It would be the best of both worlds. IMHO

In two minds buy the JM26 now or wait for the S-L3 the Jm26 has gone up by £2

There are some other lights with side switches out there but many of them have a tail clicky as well. I carried a Fenix PD32 for a while but when I got the ZebraLight SC600 the Fenix has become the “backup”. The side switch only style has my attention.

I think that this JM26 would suit me for a hiking/camping light where run time and throw would be an advantage. The few beamshots that I’ve seen of this light show that there is adequate spill along with good throw. I’ll be interested to see a review when this light gets in the hands of some BLF folks.

Cheers

If I may speak for the BLF community, and I will… In the future, Yes, always go Higher amps Jake. On these multi-mode lights one can always run the light in Medium or whatever for longer uses. The flashaholics know what I’m talking about.

If this is true the HD2010 will most likely beat it in terms of throw.

I like that it appears lighter than the UltraFire HD2010. 260g vs. ~350g (HD2010)
And smaller 142mm vs. 162mm (HD2010) length wise. Head diameter is about the same. 63.5mm vs. 63 (HD2010)

Is the clicky a forward or reverse? It’s probably a reverse

I watched your video. Thanks
