I got my X65vn MINI back yesterday.

A little expensive but worth it. Sometimes it is worth it to get what we want.

I now have control of when to dial down and I love all the mode group options.I get a whopping 15 minutes of combined max output w/ the Acebeam VTC6 Re wraps. Resting voltage was 3.54V. I imagine VTC5D or Molicel P26A would get about 12 minutes!This is why I am looking for another battery carrier. K60 carrier won’t work[see not a stupid question thread] and Acebeam has not replied.

Skylumen price for modded carrier[solder blob on springs so high drains fit better] is too high[$45] he even said it was not worth the price.

This is almost impossible to beat. From East coast To West coast, modded and back to East coast in 5 days!! Thumbs Up

I sent it last Saturday and got it yesterday[Thursday]. He modded it on Monday when he got the light, sent back on Tuesday.I must say he is efficient, responsive[to emails] and prompt

You can't hide me from me.

Thats why I mentioned him in reply #1 Big Smile

Vinh is a great seller, he communicates well, does really nice work and deserves fair compensation even if it seems expensive. I personally like that he offers a warranty.

Glad you got the light all sorted. 9600 lumens and 550kcd is a great all around spotlight. Thumbs Up

This[X65 MINI] is the light I wanted to begin with but I Thought I would save money and get the HT70! No use bringing that fiasco up again! Facepalm

This is a much better quality light all the way around. Thumbs Up

I am very happy that you like your X65 in general, and specifically X65 Mini Vn.

Autumn 2016 is when I got visibly excited when the specs for the X65 maxi were first announced. I got my X65 maxi Vn in December, 2016, the first one to pass through Vinh's hands. I was so thrilled at its beam performance/profile, that I grabbed another one three months later, one for each hand.

I have been following your posts, and again, I am very happy that you got a really great power thrower that you like.

I used to (well, still do) build and upgrade PCs for people who who ask, but mainly friends and family. I do laptop repair too, but dont recommend it to anyone unless they are willing to have a damaged laptop that works after being fixed. Laptops are terrible to repair since you almost inevitably break something in the process of repairing (clips or tabs break off, bezels might crak or break, screw holders or threaded inserts break off or strip, hinges might slip or their mounts break and warp the chassis, parts don’t fit despite being the ‘right one’ or compatible). I offer a warranty on things. I could mod flashlights too, and have built some for family, a d myself, but it’s a mixed bag really. Some lights are so hard to mod and parts get expensive, it’s not cost-effective for me or the owner. Unless they have to have it their way, or the item is special or has intrinsic value, I might recommend a new or secondhand PC or flashlight. If it costs $120 to fix a laptop and you can get a nice used one for $100, I’d recommend the used one.

I picked the best setting for me. 1%/30% and 100%

It was 58F out tonight. Initial burst was for 5.5 minutes on turbo. Then a few minutes on 1% to cool down, then 30%[which is ~3200L] for several minutes where it won’t get hot, then back to 100%………..repeat cycle! Thumbs Up

So all the talk about too expensive, I’m too cheap etc.,…

What’d it cost to have done?
