updated: "unbranded Prototype" of UTorch UT03

Hello my friends!

i got a Box today with a new light in it. (thanks to Jona from gearbest!)

since its an early Prototype it has no branding, accessories or a user manual
all of my findings and measures may not apply on the final product!

 

Specs as far as i can see:
3x XHP70 12V in parallel
4x 18650 in series
SMO reflector
side switch with LED

UI (as far as i found out)
short click to switch on (mode memory)
long click to start in Moon
short click goes Low-Mid-High-Turbo-High-Mid-Low-Mid...
long click to switch off (1-2 sec)

double (from any mode) click activates: TURBO 2
short click then toggles strobe-SOS-Beacon
double click to off

 

 

i will try to add more pictures, measurements and more text as soon as possible,

but i need to show the first impressions right now Big Smile

 

Day 2

I took some more pictures

do you notice that also head and batterytube (still glued ;)) have a different color?

another angle
machining marks ...
my sample did not get full attention Sad
the knurling is perfect and gives good grip

the switch is raised a bit to make it easier to find
the status LED indicates the cell voltage (blue/purple-ish/red)
dig
the square cut thread have not been lubed well from factory - i did that to lower the massive amount of force needed to open the tailcap

(seems the Oring is too thick or tailcap to narrow - for my other tests i removed the Oring...)

well done battery "carrier"
no sharp edges

a look down the tube shows the 4S cell configuration
dav
the tailcap of my sample was taken from the Manker shelf Wink

when i opened the (non-glued/non-greased) bezel the Oring to the lens broke

thick lens
clear, uncoated
the Oring on the body survived (dry) + regular threads
the reflector

no flaws
they said prototype - so i say thats okay
the LEDs are not centered good (but well enough) because they do not sit 100% on the spot

No.1

N0.2
N0.3 looks good
soldering on the aluminium MCPCB
prototype...

my biggest concern: the SMO reflector Sad
i see a hole in the spot

pointing on a dark painted wall in my "homecinema"

Moon

Low
Mid
in the video its more noticeable

 

OUTDOOR beamshots:
will be added when it does not rain Sad

 

i made a video tring to show how the light works on different voltages Wink

for the numb3r crunchers:

  16V   15V   14V   13V  
  Lumen A Lumen A Lumen A Lumen A
Moon 1 0,01 1 0,01 1 0,01 1 0,01
Low 20 0,04 20 0,04 20 0,04 20 0,04
Mid 410 0,26 410 0,28 415 0,3 415 0,31
High 1970 1,1 1970 1,15 1980 1,22 1990 1,31
Turbo1 4520 2,97 4540 3,16 4540 3,35 4570 3,61
Turbo2 7920 6,4 7920 6,83 7920 7,24 6730 5,7

(Lumen have been corrected compared to a acebeam X45)

PLEASE NOTE
i do not work in "reviews, deals and codes" for the time being
maybe M4D M4X will return one day, but until then:

THANK YOU FOR YEARS OF YOUR SUPPORT AND FRIENDLY CONTACTS!

Argh all those awesome lights released/announced the last days! Facepalm

Hope there will be a neutral/warm tint option. I guess this could be rated as a light belonging to the ~10k lumen monsters?

Hhmm- MCPCB looks alum, and appears to be thin wires. I'd like to see it screwed down as well.

Interesting they made it SMO. Not much done for the heat, but probably can't do much in that size package.

It’s running the XHP70s as “12 volt” emitters.
Smart choice.

Ah these kind of lights are coming fast now that the LED prices have dropped i think drivers have gotten cheaper also.
This light looks like it still needs work but its a start.
We will have to see pricing.

Yea the pics dont work for me either on here and your website mate.

Curious to see the pics… I wonder if this Utorch has got Manker written all over its hardware, just like the UT02…

Edit:

Yes I see pics! Yes it looks good! Yes it says Manker, ROFL.

The new modern SRK JUMBO !

Looks cool, I’ll give them a pass for the sheety solder job being a prototype, but you’d think they would want it good for the test measurements of a tester.
Please test as -is and them after re-solder to see the difference if any.

Thanks for the peek:)

Love the machining; definitely got its own look. Love the grey and black combo; very classy… Price is probably going to be great. Already worried about parasitic drain though…

Im still waiting on a light like this with three MT-G2 emitters and a 3,000 lm second level high (aka) an actual usable not just a short term blast.

and while im at bitching make it a flood monster.

I hear ya. Kind of doubt it will happen… lumens war… so it’s XHP70… shame…

However,

Haikelite is about to release the SC02. Single 26650 with MT-G2 emitter… Sweet move. Smile

I was going to try to edit the OP to include only that one pic and make a snarky comment, but you beat me to it.

Would be funny to see the driver and other parts labelled:

The two tone looks lovely.
The light looks really compact – TN36 style.
The soldering makes me feel happy about myself.

It looks like it’s just going to shout light angrily into the air in a spray and pray kind of fashion. You’ve got to think this is going to be around the 8k lumen mark with just a wall of light.

You’ll burn your hand on the body in no time that’s for sure.

It looks like a fun light to have but it’ll be a battery muncher for sure and they’ll have to have a decent step down on it before you start to cook stuff with it.

I saw that the head is very poorly made
The reflector is dirty, the solder is not clean, the wire is small(it should be used for 1000 lumen light, not xhp70*3 light)
