New flashlight company: Imalent. Flashlights with display

Has anyone read something about this flashlight company? IMALENT
First impression: Looks little bit like Jetbeam/Nitecore, but there are a nice looking feature, which I have never seen before: Changed the modes via display:

Light up the darkness.

They look very good. If it works as demonstrated on the site I’d want one, depending on cost, the DC2R looks right for me.

I feel like the control screen needs to be moved like 2-3 inches back.

I like the screen (DD2R is 1×18650 too, review sample plz!!) but I don’t want the built-in charger. I wonder if the touch screen/digitizer goes funny when it gets hot, like my phone does…

Looks good! Looks expensive too..

All of them look quite awesome..

I really like the T4A.. Compact triple emitter light with high output and 4 AA sized batteries. Hopefully its reaching its max potential with nimh..

That may be the future.  Flashlights need a better way to control infinitely variable output than control rings, and this is one option.

The low mode should be lower.

Seller says XM-L2 in headline and description, but pictures seems to show XP-Gs, and so does manufacturers image description.. FAIL..

Otherwise, based on earlier auctions, some of these seems to have been sold for not too extreme prices. Im not buying, but I sure would like to see a review.. Smile

YOU, reading this.. Click buy on one of these. You know you want to.  0:)

 

Edit:

XP-G

Looks like XP-Gs..

XM-L2

huh??

why don't they just start at what they're willing to sell at?

I think we're looking at the same item. Wink

Hope we don't get in a bidding war ramblings! 

Want it, but not that bad... Yet.

 

I never do a 99 cent auction with a reserve. I either start it at the minimum I will take or a buy it now with a best offer option. 

Edit: did you just bid? Lol

Because NDT-forbid that every single light have it’s emitter driven to the ragged edge of it’s operating envelope. Big Smile

An emitter’s output is a parabolic curve. As you increase output, it takes more and more energy to get the next lumen. It’s the law of diminishing returns. By using several emitters driven less harshly they can get a higher net efficiency from the torch, thus yielding a longer runtime for a given output setting.

I’m not an electronics expert, but could you even push any kind of real output from three emitters with 4 AA batteries? Even if you could, wouldn’t it be a pathetic run time? I for one like the idea of a decent balance between output and run time from a form factor like this one. Hopefully they aren’t driving them too hard.

Can somebody contact them please!! And try for a groupbuy .

Info@imalent.com

If somebody does, please tell that here, so not 10 people at the same time try to make this happen, which can cause a lot of confusion.

All I can see is the introduction of a point of failure, whoops droped my torch Sh** the screens broken, talk about the Iphone of torches, this for me is a definite unnecessary weak point, your paying extra for something less rugged, no way would I ever own one.

I’m assuming this is a capacitive touch screen?

Would be nice if it’s infinitely variable or better yet, runs Android KitKat. Silly

I emailed them 12 hours ago about a group buy for the DD4R.

Not Xm-l2's, XP-G.  Blame a bad ebay description.

Two members of a german flashlightforum ordered a T4A. If one post a review or show some nice pictures, I will post the link in this thread, too.
