What are you getting as the output on yours?

I can’t measure the output yet because it’s too bright for my light box.

I tried to get a neutral density filter to tone it down for measurement, but apparently it was not, as promised, made of glass… and it melted within five seconds of trying to measure a triple XP-L. So, I’ll have to either get a better filter or find some other solution.

That sucks, sorry! I’m getting way higher than I should, I may need realign my sensor.

You are getting something between 8Klm to 10Klm?

I got 7700 lumens the other day and little over 8000 yesterday… these were with just with whatever state of charge was in the batteries at the time- most likely over 4.1 volts. This can’t be right. Most lights I’ve tested at 30 seconds I’ve been under the manufacturer rating by a little or a lot.

Interesting. but still not majorly absurd numbers. I think 4.1V should still be quite ok to hit that intended 8A-10V output of the Turbo.

Id like to hear what others are getting on this tint, but so far I havent seen anyone share numbers here or on CPF.

I have not seen too many readings but even on the discontinued 1D DD variant there were reports from 6000lm up to 7900lm

You will see some reading of the S3 has only 5800lumens, but with a whopping 40Kcd throw, which does not make sense, less lumens and more throw...

BTW what is the candlea number you get at 1 meter with fully charged cells?

My meter for example seems to under read a bit compared to what others get but for the 219B-V1 I get 19.5Kcd at 30sec, which of course right on with the 20Kcd rating, but again I am sure someone else can easily get 21-22Kcd with a meter that reads higher than mine. Others hame measured even 24Kcd for the old 219B version.

So I do my cd rating at 20feet and do the lux to cd converter online for my 1m rating. Some throwers I measure have too tight of a hot spot to measure at any less. My fully charged measurements have been: 7644 lumens with 33,593 cd. There’s a beam shot of it in my latest video review.

Also is there any data available on runtimes of the lower modes? Anyone do any testing of them yet?

Does anyone have experience using this flashlight for videography 219BT LED, 90 CRI? How well did it do? I am also wondering how do lower outputs affect CRI and color rendering? Should I expect maximum CRI only when running it at maximum output?

I will definitely get this flashlight, but I am debating whether to go for the high CRI version and also use it for videography, or to just go for the higher lumen and throw version and get something else for videos.

Thanks!

How interesting. What program is this?
