Waterjet Channel cuts open an Imalent MS18!

Ok I know this hurts. But it’s fun to see two muggles cut open the brightest light available. They also compare it to a Ebay 90.000LM light.

There’s no replacement for displacement.

Given that the battery is built-in it’s good that they used a waterjet rather than some metal saw.

Exactly. Imagine cutting into 8 21700s? I’m still surprised it didn’t even smoked…

Wellp, I could picture a coupla Ukranian guys who’d use a metal-bladed saw…

All in their appropriate safety gear (goggles, flipflops, and shorts), of course.

Well with a water cutter you would assume the majority of it was pushed into the cutting surface and rest was just drenched in liquid preventing the smoking part.

They found a void in an anvil too, shame on you HF for trying to hide defects.

Now i used to think that i was cool,
drivin' around on fossil fuel,
until i saw what i was doin',
was drivin' down the road to ruin. --JT

It was always merely going to be an anvil-shaped object, with or without the void.

Those guys were completely flashlight illiterate. And couldn’t even count. They were unworthy of that Imalent MS18, it’s probably for the best that they destroyed it. We’ll call it a mercy killing. I’m glad it’s no longer suffering.

Isn’t that their demographic? Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I look at pre-order numbers for flashlights that should be wildly popular and it’s just a lot lower than I would have expected from this site.

Does the Imalent have a liquid coolant pump, or what is the copper tubing in the heatsink?

Looks like a copper heat pipe, for transferring heat away from the LEDs.
