I’ll be surprised if the numbers are anywhere near what they are claiming and the price! Can’t wait to see the actual numbers when the light is tested.

Hello,
have I missed the post, or is the price still not yet fixed for this groupbuy.

Will this HK90 be shipped directly form Haikelite or from another sender e.g. Neal?

Interested in one colour sand.
Thanks.

Hah Richie086, glad to see you here!

 

I don't understand the above critiques on the throw. Let me explain:

  • a 100 mm head light easily did 700+ kcd on old dedomed XP-G2's (my BOSS1 as a good example)
  • triples in the same overall dimensions usually do slightly less than a single
  • SBT90.2's driven well should easily out perform old dedomed XP-G2's
  • so 750 kcd real world from a triple SBT90.2 driven well with overall 100 mm head diam should be quite do-able, suspect 800 kcd or so if it were a single SBT90.2

freeme -

  • is the UI a total unknown at this point?
  • I would suggest fixing the OP specs: 750 kcd, 1732 meters -- this would match Neal's listing

I had some Emails to Martin (M4DM4X). He told me, that Neal has Anduril on the HK90.
I had also private messages to Toykeeper. She told me, that she never had worked with Haikelite for HK90. Hope I´m allowed to post this here.
So I´m not sure, what UI HK90 has. I hope HK90 has anduril, maybe “only” a ramping UI…

Plop and drop of anduril ui is pretty common

Thanks Tom. I haven’t had anything relevant to add to the forum for a while now. So I turned into
a lurker. Just decided which new light to purchase these days.

Yep, I see - preferential treatment to CPF smile.

 Shame if it's an old Anduril version from 2019. Early 2020 she made significant improvements to the thermal regulation, for one thing. I'm actually modding with using Anduril2 with has other improvements like voltage calibration, but it's still in on-going development.

 Would be interested in hearing more from HK on this. According to TK, HK doesn't contact her. The way I understand it, they don't have her approval because they never asked for it - they just don't communicate to her, or me for that matter. I don't know details here - could be other issues...

Hello,
are there some lights shipped yet?
Seems, that they are still not yet in stock.

I´ve not bought here in Groupbuy.
Thanks.

Another question.
Are cells with very high drain and bypassed Springs also maybe cause damages, like in other flashlights with DD Driver.
I know. that Anduril is regulated wide range, but Turbo will be direct drive.

Are someone here who plans to “Dedome” the LEDs Big Smile ? (Remove the Window of LEDs)?
Thanks.

If.... if Banggood sold only three of these, will the three flashlights be shipped to Banggood, or will there be no shipment from the factory to BG, because the number sold by BG is too low?

Lots of daily activity on the German forum, speculating about when shipping the HK90 will begin. One German enthusiast, [b]square74[/b], reports that his HK90 has arrived at the airport. A few other German enthusiasts have received preliminary tracking information.

I am eager to compare beam profile and beam performance with the X65. I think that this is the first mid-large multiple 90.2 light, if not the first multiple 90.2 light to be offered for pre-order.

GT94? http://budgetlightforum.com/node/74055. Guess none received yet, but looks like you can pre-order them: https://www.nealsgadgets.com/products/lumintop-blf-gt94-flashlight?_pos=4&_sid=25ba9e10c&_ss=r

I pre-ordered both. This one, the Haikelite HK90 3*Luminus SBT90.2 High Lumens 3*21700 that is the subject of this topic thread, I pre-ordered from the freeme BG Group Buy;

and also, the GT94 that you linked to, I pre-ordered from the Texas_Ace NG Group Buy, node/74603.

The HK90 is just beginning to ship, according to one person on the German forum, but the GT94 still has a while to go before it is ready to ship.

Freeme - please put me down for one piece, sand color!

I got a few SBT90.2 lights now, most modded. Got 3 zoomies modded with them, mainly because it's easy - don't have to worry about making the reflector hole bigger or how to get the LED centered, etc. I modded quite a few old BTU Shockers for BLFers and a Shocker is close to what the HK90 is - triple with ~100 mm head diameter. Always liked the Shocker, and again, over built like many of the Haikelites.

Funny because BTU kind of became Haikelite - the last BTU's have a lot in common with Haikelite designs - pretty sure the same guy from BTU was or is involved in Haikelite.

I normally stay away from high cost lights like this, but this is really a Shocker make-over, and everything I'd want to see in a new generation Shocker: GT90.2's, e-switch, and triple 21700's. Quad 21700's would be too big. This light's tube diameter of 53 mm is slightly over the Q8's tube diam of 50 mm. You would think it should be lower than 50 mm, but we don't know yet if it's a carrier or cut out tube design, and how thick the metal is, but based on other HL designs, they don't care much about skimping on metal smile.

That´s me Big Smile .

Yes, but I ordered at Neals shop.

HK90 is arrived at
Airport-Import , Netherlands-Schiphol International Airport.

Hope I can hold the HK90 in my hands, soon ;).

Has anyone of the sellers made some own pictures of the flashlight interior?
Cells parallel? or serial?

Contacts in Head or Tail?

Thanks.

EDIT:

Sorry, I missed this picture:

My best estimate here for throw is 560kcd. A quick and dirty pixel measurement said each of the reflector wells are about 47mm. Center holes about 13mm. I estimate the total frontal area to be a bit higher than a TN31 (65mm ID), but only by about 6%.
Maximum frontal area assuming three full 47mm wells, which I’ll use as an upper limit, would yield approx 750kcd.
If it were a single reflector, it’d be about 86mm ID. That would about 875kcd with a single 90.2.

I may be way off, but we’ll have to see.

I got ~525 kcd from a Shocker (triple reflectors, 100 mm diam head) with dedomed XM-L2 U2's, and ~710 kcd with a dedomed XP-L in a 100 mm diam head BOSS1.

~750 or 750+ kcd is realistic to me for a triple 100 mm head diam running SBT90.2's off of 3 40T's, assuming a good, low resistance electrical path.

Fair enough. My gut is around 680 here. But the calcs I was doing were coming out a good bit lower. When we’re dealing with big numbers like these, a +/-10% error is huge.
