I think something must be going on with Neal. He has not been very responsive.

Neals Baby was in hospital and he had VPN problems

also Imalent delivered later than hoped plus splitted neals order which added more delay...

he deliveres as fast as he has units on hand
if someone does not want to wait buy on Amazon Wink

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:

A Question... 

 

was it not clear NOT to speak about possible price benefits?? 

to enjoy quietly.. 

 

Some Idiot used a screenshot to force a local dealer to make a better price.

 

that broke the agreement I had with you! 

that violated the trust the manufacturer had in the community 

that endangers all flashaholics worldwide getting a "F&F benefit" 

 

as first consequence SA is excluded from deals from now on!

Which is SA?
Edit.
Isn’t it possible that it could be done by some dealer out of BLF?

I might buy one if they ever release with a NW emitter, that much cool white, even in videos, just washes out all the colours and hurts my eyes hahaha…

I had a notice from BG that my order has shipped out through priority direct mail,giving me a weird tracking number,something like 483xxxxxxxxx133, a total of 15 numbers,which is not found from 17track.
Because all of the tracking numbers of my tens of orders are of the following type,RS94xxxxx76NL,I don’t know what is happened here.
Can you check please your tracking numbers from BG to compare?
Edit.
I found that it is a FedEx tracking number.

Well I really cant fully test mine unless I go far from home and I havent had the time. But dang this thing is extremely bright. I test it on my street and it melted the light post. It turn the street into daylight. I turned it off right away because I was sure I was gonna get into trouble. I cant way to go into a rural area to test it better

It is all these you say,so I decided to choose the other one,ie the R90TS.

It’s because we’re waiting for the spots to disappear so we can see our screens. Here’s a bunch of beamshots I took: https://m.imgur.com/a/8ccwRBp I used manual exposure settings so you could get the relative brightness of everything.

Previously my brightest light was an X80-GT, the 60,000 lumen setting on the MS18 already makes people shield their eyes indoors, then you turn it on turbo and they go “WHOA! Too bright! Turn it off!”

I was in the kitchen showing my mom and sister the light, my dad was in the bathroom around the corner with the door closed and the lights on. When I turned it on turbo in the kitchen he said it was so bright that the light coming from under the door lit up the bathroom a little more. From around the corner, in a different room, pointed at the ceiling.

I wish I could find a mountain or a hill so I could light up the entire side of it. The amount of light it puts out is completely unreal.

I just wish imgur didn’t compress the hell out of the pictures, but you can’t upload RAW files and imgur really didn’t like the 90 mb PNGs.

Naw, it’s best to shrink them yourself to just under their size limit. You can keep the quality higher compared to letting Imgur to it for you. You can also link to the original image while using a smaller version for the forum.

I’m not sure what their size limit is but I got those pictures by setting the quality to 12 on photoshop when converting to jpg. It made them about 5-13 mb each.

I’m not sure about the limits either, but 3264×1836 and 2.3 MB seems to work fine.

Do you have an example of a photo you uploaded that was shrunken by Imgur?

I know the first picture in the album was compressed heavily. At least on mobile it looks really awful. All of the pictures were originally 5472×3648. I did not shrink them before uploading to imgur.

Discord example: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/424371808020594709/58874990373214...
Should be much higher quality.

I did a search and found your album. If you look at the webpage on a mobile device it looks crappy. I click the link to open it in the app and it looks great. It shows to be 5464×3070 and 1.2 MB.

As long as everyone else can see them in high quality, I’m happy. I’ve derailed this thread long enough. Thank you!

I purchased the stock version Imalent R90TS from Vinh54, and it shipped today, I anticipate having it in three business bays, maybe by Wednesday, July 17.

This will be my first Imalent light!

My main area of interest is beam profile/beam performance.

I n this light. I envision a beam profile similar to X65, but with a little more throw and some more beam width, and some more up front spill, with more lumens on the target at given range, but in the form of a larger hotspot; this is what I envision.

The light shipped today, I anticipate having it in three or four business bays, maybe by Wednesday, July 17.

I will post back with subjective impressions.

I just got the big package five hours ago, noon Arizona time, so nighttime beam profile impressions will have to wait another four hours, but I want to post now.

My two comparison/reference lights are X65Vn for beam profile comparison, and X45Vn 70.2 OP for lumens comparison.

Size: Length is similar to X65, battery pack length is almost the same length as X65 battery pack, but a little thicker: 2.2 in./59mm diameter battery pack, versus 1.9 in./48mm diameter battery pack for the X65, due to 21700 40T batteries, versus 18650 batteries for the X65.

Weight: Battery pack feels only a little heavier than X65 pack, head feels significantly heavier than X65 head.

Likes, initial daytime out of box:

8 power modes: 7 normal modes plus Turbo, so no shortage of power modes to choose from.

White wall hunting: beam has nice defined hot spot, transitions are small/gradual, all white, no yellow or purple or blue.

Lots of bright copper parts can be seen when looking in through the fan intake/exhaust ports. Lots of bright copper heat dissipating fins can be seen inside.

Simple UI is a Like for me. When I am in the mood for ultra giga tera advanced UI, I can configure for such in my Noctigon Meteor M43vn XP-L dd.

Bathroom (small, white) ceiling bounce check: Versus X45Vn at 25,000 lumens: 35,000 lumens is 40% more than 25,000 lumens, and subjective brightness increase appears to be about 15% brighter than the X45Vn. That rates as a Like for me; no noticeably brighter bathroom would have been a not like.

White kitchen refrigerator hunting: subjective brightness increase appears to be about 20% brighter than the X45Vn. The bounce from the white metal refrigerator does overload the eyes.

Fan noise level is ok.  Subjective build quality appears to be nice.

My initial impressions continued: Night time:

First glance at the reflector of the R90TS looks like a flooder, because of so many emitters. But, the beam really is a throw beam, not flood beam. The kicker is that it is a very high lumen throw beam, and a wider than X65 throw beam.

Think X65 beam profile, but the main beam is not as narrow. Shine the X65 down the street a few blocks, and then the R90TS; the R90TS will clearly show similar beam profile, but some more main beam width.

Of course, the X65 beam profile/performance is very impressive, but finally, after two and a half years, Imalent has this light with beam profile/performance that is more impressiver!

So, unless there is something else out there that I am not aware of, I would rate this as King of the high output throwers.
