JetBeam II PRO [Review]. Updated: runtime, beam

Arrived a few hours ago, the new JetBeam II PRO.
No doubt, my nicest 2016 light!!! (at least in design, I must test next days the regulation,etc..)
My first Pics:

LED: XP-L Hi, reflector orange peel (OP)
Size: 67.8mm(L) x 23mm(cabeza) x 22.3mm(cuerpo)
Battery: 1 × 16340 / CR123
Interface: Electronic side switch
MODES: 4; Ultra low/low/mid/High+ strobe.
Interest: Timing, strike bezel
Link:
review in spanish luxlinternas.blogspot.com
Link for bought

With other JetBeams (well know by all us):

With my other preferred 16340 lights:

More information next days….(or hours…)

Ask for Price MP-

Some extra Pics:

1. First, the light includes an aggressive Tactical bezel, and a smooth bezel.
The Attack bezel can be used in 2 different positions.

This is my preferred configuration Evil

The light is very compact, When I see the II PRO in the web images, I can not imagine this size, is really in the league of Olight S1 and Fenix E15, authentic EDC:

37 gr. with clip (without battery) and only 67 mm (length) x 23 mm (head)

The JetBeam II PRO aluminium version, arrived in a blister like this. Include a lanyard, spare Oring, extra bezel (smooth) the Atack is attached. The user manual is very complete.

User interface JETBEAM II PRO:

1. Direct access to moonlight mode from off: 2 fast clicks
2. For turn on or turn off, simple click. Memory for last used: Low , Mid or High. (memory not include moonlight mode)
3. Change modes, when flashlight is on keep depressed the swith: order of modes; High, Mid, Low, High, Mid…..
4. Strobe: 3 fast clicks. Available with flashlight “on and off”
5. Electronic Lockout: When flashlight is turned off, long press for more than 3 seconds (flashing and lock). To unlock long press for more than 3 seconds. But the moonlight mode (2 fast clics) and strobe (3 fast clics) are availables with the lock actived.
6. Timing function: With flashlight on, 4 fast clics for activate 3 minute countdown for off, 4 fast clics again for 9 minutes of count down for off.

Coments: when we access to the moonlight mode, if you keep depressed the switch, alternate high-moonligh-high-moonlight….

for the control this nice electronic switch:

First technical data:
Measured lumens with my light/box:

The offical values provided by JetBeam are;
HIGH: 510 lumens
MID: 100 lumens
LOW: 5 lumens
Moonlight: 0,5 lumens

I think my data is very accuratte with the offical data. The battery used is a 16340 Fenix at 4.20V.

A first data about regulation.
Temperature in Celsius is around 27ºC, (ufff), I have make a little test of 6 minutes, without fan (hard test). Battery is a Klarus 16340 640 mA in good condition. I have meassured data each 15 seconds. Temperature over head surface 1 data for minute. Step down begins around after 3 minutes, lumens down 520——-270 (in aprox. 20 seconds):

I have finished my first complete runtime of the JETBeam II PRO. I have used a 16340 Klarus protected battery in good condition.
First 16 minutes without fan, (here temperatures are high now) after 16 minutes I have used a fan.
I have used for this complete runtime one data for minute.
Step down after around 3 minutes (light down to around 55% or original power).
After shut off (abruptly, perhaps protection of battery …. I have measured Voltage after some minutes and read 3.05V)

3 minutes of 500 lumens and around one hour 250 lumens …is a good result for this little light!

Some about tint and beam;

I have meassured in the center of the hotspot at one meter: 5400 lux (5400cd) , with a 16340 battery with 4.2V

Led seems slightly out center, but the beam is perfect:

Of course when use the strike bezel in attack position, there are one artefact:

The beam is cool tint, nothing special, here with a warm tint of the Spark SF3 NW (they say is neutral …) and the very cold tint of the SW V11R XM-L2:

Two fast questions:

1) 18350 or 16340 only?
2) does it have full regulation or uses pwm?

1) only 16340 or CR123a. Is a slim light, 18350 is for fat lights.
2) I can not detect pwm in any mode with my camera, but I can not confirm.

What is the mode sequence and how does it compare to S1 UI-wise? Does it have moonlight shortcut?

Hey!!, this Holster fits perfect 100 % for the JetBeam II PRO (when using the smooth bezel), but only left 5 units in stock:

(I have used for long time with the Olight S1)

Holster banggood

The ultralow is a really Moonlight mode;

I will work this night in a some information about regulation for high mode.

Thanks Trevi lux,

I just placed an order for one of these and i am very much looking forward to its arrival.
This seems to tick all the boxes with the ui,regulation and interesting bezel.
I cant help but notice the user interface\timer is almost identical to the excellent olight s1 .

Any comment on the throw and beam shape of this light with the xpl hi. [4800 cd ?]

Already have mine on order should come any day now, can’t wait because I really like the way it looks and is shaped, minus the “attack” bezel part (oddly enough). Thanks for the great review, by the way hows the tint on this thing in your opinion?

Thanks Trevi lux, looks like a neat clean beam, hotspot from the xpl hi and handy throw for its size. The head looks easy to remove if any one wanted to swap the led.

I like the RCR123, 16340 capable lights for there small size, good output ratio and low weight.

Personally i like the stainless steel attack bezel and appreciate the machining that has gone into this little light- its certainly not a boring round tube like some other brands trot out.

Really looking forward to mine turning up and thanks again for your review and detailed information.

My 11 pro turned up today and i am very impressed and would like to add a couple of extra points,

Immediately what stood out was the silky smooth and light pressure metal ui switch.
The build of this light is very nice, with a lot of fine detail machining this tiny light stands out and makes an impression.

I thought the medium runtime seemed a little low at 1.5 hrs as stated in the manual, so i tested it with my AW RCR123 imr unprotected 550mah cell and got almost perfect flat regulation for over 2.5 hrs.

Start lumens [med level] 123

2 hrs 30 mins 118 lumens

At 2 hrs 39 mins the light started decrease in output and went into a slow flash / low voltage warning . [cell rebound voltage 3.03v]

Samples vary, i measure the throw at at 6100 cd compared with my olight S1 at 3000 cd with a nice wide spill and defined spot.

This little Jetbeam reminds me of some of their excellent earlier model quality lights.

Anyone managed to get the bezel off the titanium version?

I’ve tried, but it appears to be heavily glued. I think a blowtorch might be needed.

I like it, but I'm not a fan of the strike bezel.  It is nice to have the option of a normal bezel.

I got one last week. It’s by far my favorite 16340 pocket rocket. Also the best looking!
