I am already making flyers letting my neighbors know it’s just me with the bright lights since they thought someone was shining a flashlight through their basement windows and called the police when I got my X80-GT.

Hello my dear friends!

Today i present you worlds BRIGHTEST production flashlight - the IMALENT MS18 with 100 000 Lumens and his twin brother R90TS with 36 000 Lumen (but 1700m+ throw)
After a hands on i compare them outside with the Imalent MS12 (53000 Lm), the R90C (20000 Lm) and the Acebeam X70 (60000 Lm)

I wanted to give you a lot of impressions - so the video is long, especially in the beamshots i tried to give you some different ways to see the lights.

 

i try to add subtitles to the beamshot part so you can choose if you want to read which torch is on

 If you want to buy one let me know and i try to get you the best deal!

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:

I think walking away from the camera to show the beam really adds to the review. Also bringing the MS12 and X70 were great ideas. Thank you!

and the long grass in front of the camera are bad too

but i was trying to be consistent with my other videos and give a useful comparison to other lights at first.

 

-> the glamour shots will definately follow Wink

 

btw: do you know this video?

I meant adds to the depth of the review, not in a bad way. I don’t think it was too long, it covered a lot, thank you!

So, the MS18 is using a FET driver.

What is this, the MS18 or the R90ST?
Edit.
I understand that it is the MS18.

Did you buy one and take it apart or are these pics from someone else?

It’s very interesting. I don’t think anyone has posted pics of the older MS12 internals so to see the newer MS18 is nice.

Martin, great review video comparing all the big boys.

To those who have received these lights,
Is user able to open the fan frame and replace the fan? And is the fan really effective in blowing out hot air?

cool i'll see you when you get there

Ok, I thought it was glue! 

Are you sure it's black silicone? 
I thought it was just transparent?

I had assumed they made the fans easily replaceable by the customer in case one of them should stop working. Imalent could simply send a new fan to the customer which they could easily change as opposed to the customer having to ship their light all the way back to China and then ship it back to the customer again. Is this not the case?

I think it’s fine if the fans are good quality type. I don’t remember having to replace my CPU fan which was on 24hr for years. These two fans are on in short interval.

Imalent has made 1000 watts 100k lumens stock light. Don’t think they would allow user to open and repair it easily as that could be dangerous.

cool i'll see you when you get there

This light and it’s fans are supposed to handle water immersion. CPU fans don’t.

The fans should also be low voltage, so no real safety concerns.

Knowing that the fans are still not easily swapped (I thought the MS18 fixed this issue) my opinion of the design has gone down greatly. It is unfortunate.
