have their been any forum review of Monster brand flashlights?
Okay I know I have brought this up way back when but I have a friend who is actually a really nice guy but he’s driving me crazy with his Monster light brand power star I showed him my Ace beam K40M and my X60 with XHP70 and he said nice and asked where they were made I told him they are top tier Chinese based company ,he then asked what the lumen rating was and I told him the K40M was 3000 and the X60 5000 and he asked wher was it stamped and he found interesting after all the claims the light sade over seas the Guinness world record for a hand held flash light is held by wicked laser s 4000 lumens and none of they high lumens claimed by Chinese lights have claimed the record and he talked to Howard the CEO of Monster brand told him his powerstar is the second most powerful light in the world and it’s made in America amd has its lumen rating proofed on its battery tube and some strange law he insists if it’s stamped on its tube than that is by law what the light is rated at and since the Ace beam doesn’t have it stamped on it it fails to meet claimed spec? So I found these links and the similarities are scary https://shop.monsterflashlight.com/product-category/1200-3300-lumens-max... and then Kiadomain had http://www.kaidomain.com/Product/PhotoGallery/53084/210062#id=4 and over 00.00$ less so my question has anyone done a review on a monster light?

I wonder if those Monster flashlights are made at the Atlanta Flashlight Factory ? Wink
from Chinese host and parts.

Also, I bet your buddy pays too much for his HDMI cables too. :bigsmile:

So far nope. But have you tried explaining to him that lumen rating cannot be printed on to be “official” but measured so every light has varying lumen rating even if they were of the same make

I believe this is the OEM/OBM for Kai Domain. The KD brand flashlights can be found here. You can even order some up with whatever brand you want laser etched on it. You can have one branded Monster with 10,000 lumens if you like. Wink

So some guy is insulting your higher quality, better performing flashlight?
Same guy spent $220 for maybe 3300lm and probably another $40 for 3 same branded 18650 cells. They charge $30 for an i4, $45 for a D4 so he probably got one of those too.

Just Laugh about it.

he said it was a xmlu2 with a constant current driver and runs at 2.0 amps ,I tried showing him the Wikipedia led site with the cree leds types and amperage and he said my led wasn’t even on there probably some unknown knock off led because ehes never seen one like it anyhow I guess I’ll let it go I just wish someone would get one and review and post the results ove checked CPF her on BLF and of course no one monster lights serious enough to do one and o almost bought into th a couple of years ago and than God memebers here steered me away from them I just hate what they charge and blatantly lie about performance and being made in America

Atlanta Flashlight Factory II: Electric Boogaloo

This whole Monster brand flashlights, batteries and cases business is making me a very confused consumer. Wink

To: legal@monsterproducts.com ; IPProtection@monsterproducts.com
Subject: Monster Flashlights and Batteries

Hello

I am very confused. Are the Monster flashlights and batteries sold at monsterflashlight.com real monster flashlights, batteries and cases?

Since I don’t want myself or my friends who told me about Monster flashlights, batteries and cases to get ripped off, I thought that I’d ask you before I make a purchase. There are so many counterfeit Monster products out there and products with the Monster name on it.

Thank you

Then just buy one of these bad boys. With "16000 LM" stamped on the tube, it's legally bound to be legit, by law! :bigsmile:

Too bad this one isn't stamped appropriately...

28,000 Lumens in a single-emitter zoomie! This has got to be a record!

http://www.ebay.com/itm/28000-Lumen-Cree-LED-Taschenlampe-LED-Handstrahler-Akku-2-Ladegerate-Cree1-/161682169344?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_77&hash=item25a5021e00

or this one...

30,000-Lumen Single-T6/Single-18650 for only $8.99!

Even better, a 30,000 lumen LED headlamp, that somehow pushes a generic emitter to insane levels without heat sinking!

I have he said he doesn’t like BLF because they only deal with cheap chinese lights,and he told once he went and asked on CPF about monsyer and that is where he got the idea that if the lumen rating is ecth3d into battery tube than that was it a cull out but and xmlu2 s are the latest emitters I would really like to see someone do a review on one maybe Iam wrong but it would be fun to find out .

I doubt anyone from CPF would actually tell him that. A lot of CPF members are also members of this forum, like myself…some use different names though. If anyone over there told him that, I’m sure your friend & the person that said that would have both been corrected pretty quickly.

After looking on CPF at the CLOSED “monster light” thread, looked like the manufacturer was trying to gain business by creating new accounts on CPF and asking if anyone has ever heard of monster brand flashlights. He would then post replies with the created accounts, acting as customers of monster lights/members of CPF and post reviews. After a few threads of user accounts with only 1 or two posts were the only ones chiming in on monster lights they started closing them seeing as how it was suspicious and most likely the manufacturer doing it.

I just ran into that a few moments ago as well.

Even if those were not shill posts they only mentioned having MF lights with nothing to compare it against. It would be like giving a incan maglite user a 9× 5mm led, 3x AAA flashlight.

The few that did have something to compare it against were negative about the MF brand.

After spending some time google searching I’ve found 3 youtube review/comparisons, the 4 or 5 BLF threads light junkie started, and the 1 CPF thread.

1 of the youtube videos is reviewing a direct Ultrafire 501B copy, branded MF. They sell this for $40.

The other was an el cheapo 5x xpe, plunger style flashlight.

What really amazes me is that people would actually spend upwards of $300 on something that has so little backing. It’s baffling.

I know, lol…it’s insane. There is no way I would spend anywhere near that much money with out reading/watching review comparisons and knowing for sure what I’m getting.

If a person can be led astray on something like this, he will be very very likely be wrong about a dozen other things.... and that IS a problem!!

Maybe someone should ask their shop to send a review sample!!!

think of it this way, you have seen the light and since he resists doing the same he is staying in the dark and should be allowed to remain

This field of study will just keep winning, and we knew that all the best people would want to be on board.

Monster brand flashlights, batteries and cases are still causing me to be a very confused consumer. Will the USB rechargeable models come with a Monster USB cable?
