I’m so confused, goinggear.com posted a video 10 hours ago showing the DX80 lighting paper on fire, so I assume they received stock, and maiden666 has clearly received one. I have one preordered through gearbest and they have changed the shipping date a few days forward to 3-6 September. But Imalent have posted that they have a quality issue and need to delay orders for 20-30 days?

Maybe re-read my post? Imalent are saying they can’t ship the DX80 to suppliers for another 20-30 days due to a quality issue, see post #270 with link to their statement from yesterday. But here we have a BLF member who has received one, and goinggear posted a video of one 10 hours ago, i.e after Imalents statement. Their statement is posted on CPF so appears to be about the DX80 in general and not a second batch. Gearbest meanwhile have updated the shipping date but only by 3 days. So my confusion is, are they all delayed or have some been shipped, what is the issue and should I be worried if mine gets shipped in the next few days, i.e is the issue only with a second batch or something? To add to the confusion, banggood have a statement on their product page saying that it is delayed until 25th of August, this was the first delay and I preordered less then a week ago thinking this issue was fixed and it would be shipped soon (although ordered from GB instead as prefer DHL). So Imalents statement from yesterday appears to be a new issue?

Maiden666, where did you order yours from?

^^^ Imalent is stating about the second batch. First batch was already sold out. So the light Maiden666 received should be from the first batch. On Chinese forum many people complain about problems with the DX80 (from the first batch). That’s probably why Imalent decided to change stuff of the second batch, hence the delay.

Ah, it seems you weren’t aware that the first batch had shipped out and already arrived to many customers. It was mostly to Asian locations. There have been numerous reports of problems and doa’s. So Imalent has stopped shipping and probably told GB and BG to not ship. Imalent are going to redesign the driver. So there’s probably going to be a long delay before the Rev 2 models are shipped out.

If yours gets shipped in a few days, I would be worried.

All I saw was it catching paper on fire. Lights with much less output can do that. So the DX80 better do it.

Was there anything about the halted production?

Wow.  Sorry I bothered to waste space with a post in this thread.  I realize other lights can catch paper on fire, just thought I'd post it for others to see if they hadn't.

 

No mention of production stoppage, just that they are in stock on Going Gear's website.

 

I believe I'll just stick to CPF from now on since I've been an active member there since 2005.

It’s just for the last week or so all discussion on this thread has been about the problems and delays of the light. It’s almost as if you haven’t read any of this thread. I was just confused by your post that’s all. Sorry.

I am tempted to call Going Gear and ask them specifically about the questions raised in the past few posts, and also ask them what they think about this make/model in general. Plus, GG  is having a s*le.

Thanks!  I'm pretty much settled on all my light needs at the moment but just got an Acebeam K70, so I'm intrigued by these monster thrower lights.

I'm not sure if their 9 year anniversary s*le will apply to this light, though.  They basically said to try the code (from their email) and if it doesn't apply a discount, then that item isn't included.

I just got off the phone with Going Gear, and they informed me that this item is in stock, but they are holding off on shipping this item, pending reply from Imalent per their query to Imalent about which batch they have, and if it is ok to ship them.

I don’t see how they could have anything other than the 1st batch, since the next batch (to fix problems) isn’t going to be ready for a few weeks.

At GearBest they changed it until 29. September, also their representative told me that even second batch will have to pass their QC control before shipping. So I wouldn’t risk buying it anywhere before official Imalent approval.

Finally we will have true output measurement then…. My guess is 28-29000 lumens at start and drop to 25000 in first minute….

Thats the performance I would expect from 4x high drain 18650 cells. Voltage drop Should be much less with 8x cells.

My arsenal from least to most output:

Astrolux A01, Olight H1R, BLF A6, Astrolux C8, Emisar D1, Emisar D1S, Imalent DN35, Olight H2R NW, Original Skyray King, Skyray King 4x XML, Astrolux MF02 NW, BTU Shocker, Emisar D4 XPL Hi, Manker Mk34 Nichia, Trustfire X100 7x XML with kaidomain driver, BLF Q8, Haikelite MT07 xhp70.2 smo,Olight X7 NW, Acebeam X45 NW, Imalent DX80

With 4 XH70.2 yes, but with 8 of them it’s more less the same….

Imalent says to me that i can test the flashlight, i supose the DX80 are OK, but not.

Really The light worked very well. But all modes, from the low to the mid-high, were much more powerful than specified. The consequence were runtime ridiculous, especially in the medium-high mode, which only differed from the high and turbo in the first few minutes. Moreover really have not low mode (more 700 lumen in my medition).

I have to send only the head, so i think that they are working in another Driver. Everything else works very well (charge and discharge, temperature control system, pushbutton, oled screen). The quality is very good, and the projection is impressive.

In the next days i will publish all (whitouth rumtime and modes because my meditions are the meditions of a dammage model)
