Yes easily 365+k on that. Just keep that meter setting on MAX then you’ll get just one reading from test and and not a range.

Great result with the water test. Will give confidence to many hunters who may have to walk home through bush/across country in wet conditions. IPX-8 water proofing standard explained as follows:

IPX-8 Protected against water submersion – The equipment is suitable for continual submersion in water under conditions which are identified by the manufacturer. “

Good quality indicator I think. They do well for a sub $100 torch.

Updates on this light ? Is there a group buy or blf edition happening?
Someone pm me or something when its going down. Been busy as all get out and I’m down to one m24s atm and its still kicking after being dropped from a moving car when it was used to replace a headlight that got smashed by a roo.

I have enough knowledge to be dangerous at whatever I do.
I ask obscure questions to become less dangerous not more.

We have ‘roos’ over here in NZ too. Someone released wallabies in South Canterbury and up north round 100 years ago and there are big numbers. We shoot them every year. Maxtoch and 243 great for that.

Maxtoch finished with their big trade show, back to business as usual, and new 2X should be back on sale shortly. Then David can plan GB or code discount.

Should be posting details by tomorrow , as I emailed Amanda just a bit ago and I think should have everything lined out by then.

So how does one get in on the GB? Just say I’m in or go ahead and pay somehow or what?
And once ordered, how long does it take to arrive, about 10 days?

Robo said he would post details tomorrow. They will be coming from China. 10 days if you’re lucky. But count on 2 to 3 weeks. I’ve had stuff take 8 weeks before.

I’ve never had an issue with floody beam alignment at closer ranges but it seems that with this tight beamed light, an adjustable mount might be needed for long range alignment. Just curious what mounts the down under shooters are using.

There are many mounting options that work – on scope or rifle.

This is what I use – a small picatinny rail mounted on scope, and a very tall ring on torch. Quick and easy detach:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/sports/hunting-shooting/scopes-sights-mounts/mo...

http://www.trademe.co.nz/sports/hunting-shooting/scopes-sights-mounts/mo...

These examples are from a NZ site but there are heaps (and cheaper) on aliexpress.

Set torch head back from front scope bell. Beam may reflect off a shiny silencer/suppressor and you may need to wrap it in non-reflective camo or other tape. No alignment issues with beam for us.

When I have the final details there will be a list started for those who want in. We will need a minimum of 50 pieces spoken for before we can get the GB price ( which is part of what I am waiting on) If we keep the GB going until it reaches whatever the next minimum number is ( 75 , 100 pieces , or whatever the number may be) then the price will be reduced at that point again from whatever the original GB price is set at. Once all that happens then a code or Group PM with details , will be sent to the ones on the GB list and the information that is needed and/or order details to get everything finalized and your light on the way.

EDIT: Depending on the shipping method (s) that are made available it will vary by country and by the shipping method as for the amount of time it will take. The M24 GB took from around 12 days up to 6 weeks depending again on country and I think they only had standard shipping available if I remember correctly for that one.

Ok, thanks. Question: I reckon about how many lumens this’ll throw on an object say at
500 yards…100? (guessing)

No idea how many lumens, but at 500 yards whatever you shining on is lit up plenty good

Lumens isn’t what you need to look at, lux is what it takes to see an object. The formula to find lux at a given distance is lux=candela/(distance^2). The distance is measured in meters. In this case at 500m (546 yards) the lux=365,000/(500^2) which comes out to 1.46 lux. That’s enough to see something larger like a tree or building but not fine details.

At 655 yards (600 meters roughly) here is an ATV , quad, 4 wheeler whatever you may call it , with a tan sheet thrown over it on a slightly misty night. In good clear conditions you get even better throw from the 2X.

The target is the light colored spot just to the right edge of the road at the far end of where beam is hitting , as it starts downhill just behind that.

Updated in OP also………..

5-25-16
I just got the OK to get the GB started. We will need 50 pieces to get the initial price of $88.50 and if we get to 80 pieces the price drops to $83.50. This includes FREE standard shipping , a nylon carry bag , extra switch , O-rings and rubber switch boot. Also if you wish to purchase a holster they will be marked down to $2.00 and the remote pressure switch marked down to $5.00 with the purchase of one of these lights (limit of 3 each of either for each light purchased) If the pressure switch is purchased you will need to be sure to get the one marked for the NEW 2X as they are marked accordingly on Aliexpress site. Maxtoch can also include 2 of the 3400 mAh cells (Panasonic protected button tops with Maxtoch wrapper) for $15.90 a pair if you need those but they must be shipped inside the light because of the new airfreight laws so a limit of 2 per light.

I have already asked about a free holster and lower price and probably anything else that could be included and what is listed is about as good as it gets for now. The cost of this light to produce is not quiet as cheap as Maxtoch would have hoped for I am sure, but even at the price we are getting I think it is still a bargain compared to anything even remotely close to it out there. Just getting U4 1A emitters over there took almost an act of foreign trades agreement and ended up costing much more than expected.

We will be able to purchase through Aliexpress site , or IF you will only use Paypal , we can go that route through Maxtoch directly, although I think the Aliexpress purchase will be easier in the end for everyone.

If you want in please let me know by posting in the thread and specify if you will use Paypal only or if you will use Aliexpress site.
If you have a Paypal credit card , it CAN be used through Aliexpress as any other credit card also.

EDIT: If you have never used Aliexpress I think there are enough people on the forum to verify that they are a reputable dealer/site to ease your mind. I have used them a number of times and never had a problem so far.

Tac Gunner, this is one of few lights out there that makes a column of light. I don’t see an apex like other lights, I don’t see the beam flare out after the crossover, like other lights. I see a tube of light, quite like a fat laser. It’s really amazing, as the Special Forces Army guys I showed it to recently saw, with much exclamation and awe stricken cursing.

Robo,

Please put me down for (1) + holster, via Aliexpress.

Separate question: have you or know others who have had problems with customs or had to pay custom fees when receiving shipments for Aliexpress?

Thanks.

I´m tempted, but how does this light compare to other throwers like the the Acebeam K70 or the Olight M3XS-UT, both range wise and beam wise? Did anybody have the chance to compare those? I don´t need neccessarily need a rifle mountable thower, but a “best bang for the buck” thrower Wink
Thanks,
K.

The Maxtoch 2X is designed as a light weight, all-purpose beam, extreme thrower at 360-365k lux. The OLight M3XS-UT is also a lightweight but with alot less output at 250k, and has to step down to lower mode after few minutes – which Maxtoch does not. Acebeam K70 is more of a heavyweight – twice the price, twice the weight and twice the batteries of the maxtoch and about 420k. Best bang for the buck thrower is the maxtoch, but if you don’t mind a hefty bulk light you could try the Acebeam.
