By the reviews DT70 gets around 91 to 97kcd. Similar throw to MT09R

 

Thanks, I never actually got to compete a review on the multi emitter Imalents. I have hoped that someone had taken real measurement. I felt pretty sure just from the information provided from reports of what lumen output turned out to really be that the advertised candela had to be lower as well.

So that supports the value of the MT09R...

Once you have one and you kick it up into turbo for the first time you will know that is one of the best if not the best purchase you made in a light

You get a premium quality and performance light at a price much better than lights that do not perform nearly as well..

It would be great to see some still shots with fixed camera settings somewhere with better stuff to see than the lake. (or less fog to reflect the CW) In the video I think its because of the fog and the cool white and the self adjusting camera, but to me the Q8 looked more impressive in the video. Obviously that is not true its just hard to see in the video.

That will happen tomorrow night. I have already contacted the local Police dept. and Sheriffs office so that I do not get arrested lol... Also I have a new camera arriving tomorrow that will shoot much better quality video.

The camera I am using is decent HD for some things but I need more control...lol basically a camera I really did not want to spend the money on but I hope  it pays off. 

It should be here by USPS tomorrow that will give me time to get it set up and ready for this kind of video as well as stills.

Thanks, folks for the (more or less, lol) concrete information! So it looks like, all other things being equal such as batteries, conditions, etc. these are similar lights in output.
Looks like Haikelite has the nod in reliability and user interface, I really like the smaller form factor of the dt70.
I have looked in depth at other lights like the MF01, the Acebeam x80, Acebeam x45, even the Imalent DX80.
I guess I am kinda intrigued by the “tiny light, HUGE OUTPUT” aspect. I own an Emisar D4, and love shocking folks with it in its 18350 form factor (about 4k lumens out of a 2 inch light Smile

It seems like new contenders pop up every month…right after I’ve decided on a purchase, lol.

OK, so who else thought looking at the thumbnail of the video that there was a huge white mug filled with black coffee? Me! Beer

It’s just a better deal and a much safer bet 

the DT70 can be purchased for $149, just saying.

Yes it can but that is dealer cost... For a retailer to give up profit and take a loss on shipping tella people that no one will buy it otherwise.

 

Think about it for a minute if customers were paying retail price do you think they would drop it to dealer cost. If customers were buying them at a 20 percent mark up they would not drop it that low. They would sell them at the profitable prices. 

Please do not ever believe that a retailer is selling anything at a price all the way down to their cost because they like us or want to give us a great deal. They do that because if they can get back what they paid for them they can biy more of another product that is profitable. 

 

Selling any brand at dealer cost will ruin the market for the retailer and the brand. If they aree priced that low it is hoping they can unload them.

The video looks good. I like the light… I dont care about throw, more interested in the big flood. Looking forward to your next video with the camera upgrade…

Thanks!

How do you know $149 is cost price for the DT70?
Did a dealer tell you?

No.. I have had my retail license for several years... When the first new models of the Imalents came out I submitted my credentials and they sent me a price list... 

While I would never just say what the exact amount would be (that is just something retailers don't do) it is not like it is classified information, it's just kind of an unwritten rule not to go out giving people prices..

 

What I can say is that price is not even close to Imalent suggested retail price. The company selling at that price would be lucky to break even after shipping,, Maybe depending on how many they purchased and possibly got an extra 10 percent break... At best they would only make a few dollars.

Here are a couple of shots I took just after dark... 

 

 

 

This one is pretty cool. I am about 70 yards away from that.

I am really curious how much better the video will be...For what that camera costs it better be 10 times as good lol. 

 

I think the more you see the more you will like it.

I also intended to mention to notice where I have the light pointed. In the first picture you can see that I have it pointed on the ground about 30 feet from the wall I wanted to light up. The spot is on the ground and it still lit up that entire area.

 

Same in the second picture, look at the beam I have it pointed above the building and again it still lit up everything you see.

I like this light a lot...

Thanks for the reviews.. we should be thanksful with the 15000 lumen and 90k lux for the stock pop can light.. 2 years ago, pop can light came in 7000 lumen and 30k lux, unless you buy the modded version. ( still 12000 lumen / 60k lux with the modded light)..

I cant complain..

Terry,
If you have a chance, could you upload some photos of the light in hand? Or maybe with some common objects in the photo? Trying to get a grip (pun intended) on the ergonomics of the light. As I mentioned earlier, I love the idea of small form/big performance, and trying to decide if this fits the bill. I did see the opening of your video, which has some “in hand” shots.
Thanks!

Terry, when you receive the XHP35 version , please compare side by side with 70.2
I am sure you will do, thanks.

You can count on that...  Each one will have their own uses. I am more than sure that the 35 high will out throw the 70.2 version and a lot of people want that extra throw over total lumen output. Others want a little of both. I believe that the 70.2 version will be a better choice for someone looking for a light that does both throw and still cover a pretty wide area with intense light. 

The 35 high will be the customers that want a much tighter and much farther throwing light. Still enough power and light output to light up a smaller area at long distances. 600 meters for the 35 high should be a walk in the park.

 

Me I can never choose. I always end up finding some excuse that I need both when models like this come out LOL..

Any experience with the Astrolux MF-01? How does the 70.2 compare?

Not really much to compare... The Astrolux is a very bright light it would be better compared to the MT03. Both are massive flooders. The latest version of the MT03 using a TA style driver and 12k lumen output. 

Honestly I would need an Astrolux here to compare the two.

 

To compare it to the MT09R I just can't think of but 1 outcome. The Astrolux would have much wider beam but much shorter. The MT09R with it's extra power and mucj better throw with 90000 candela verses a out 54000 candela. 

Just 2 different types of lights.

 

I have an MT03 here but BangGood shipped it to me with a bad driver. I have a driver on the way, once I install the correct driver I would love to have a chance to do  side by side comparison of the 2.

I reckon the MT09R 70.2 would have a wider beam than the MT01.
My Q8 has a wider beam than my MT01

You mean the MF01?

The tir lens of the mf01 puts most of the light into a large hot spot and the spill lighting is pretty weak. Typically you’ll need to move the light around to see to the left, right and around your feet if you walk at night and have the light around 600 to 1000 lumen.

The MT09R 70.2 should have a smaller hot spot combined with more spill light. Under the same circumstances I mentioned above, this reflector based light will allow you to hold it straight and still be able to see left, right and around your feet.

Think the MT09R should have a very similar beam shape as your Q8. Just with a slightly bigger hot spot.

Thanks. I was hoping it would help me choose which light to get. I’ll wait till the 35h review to make my decision.

Are you going to test the charger as well? Or maybe you can get more pics and specs?
