Introducing New Longest Range Hunting Flashlight - L19

Are you looking for the longest throw flashlight ? The new Acebeam L19 is the last edition in our Long Range series of hunting lights which is the right one for you. The most notable feature of L19 is designed by the LED core technology of auto level. It has a very long throw advantage after comparing with the same size of LEP W30 or the same grade items.

The Farthest Throwing
The L19 is a huge beast that could reach 1300m (4265feet) throw,1650 lumens output. You can easily spot a target in any conditions.Offering green light for option which boasts an impressive throw distance of 1520m (4986.8feet). It doesn’t frighten animals and its beam can’t be seen from aside so it makes impossible to disclose your location. With six brightness settings (plus strobe) and a soft, balanced beam, the L19 is incredibly compact for a searchlight of its power level, and is easy to carry while hunting, hiking or on a search and rescue expedition.

Dual Side and Tactical Tail Switch
Full press to turn the L19 on, and tap the tactical tail switch for momentary illumination,Easily cycle through the four output modes (low → high) by tapping the side-switch, or 3 clicks in any condition to activate Strobe. The intelligent memory function will recall your last used output for quick access. Power indicator for real-time battery monitoring. The L19 has a body diameter of 1” so it is compatible with most weapon mounts. The side switch is for an everyday activation and the tail switch can be used for tactical purposes or remote pressure switch attachment.

Intelligent Design
The Acebeam L19 powered by a single high capacity 21700 battery(excluded), a Acebeam USB-C rechargeable 21700 battery with a whopping 5100mAh capacity is recommended, is also compatible with 1×18650/2xCR123/2xRCR123 batteries by using the included 18650 battery holder.To keep the flashlight and battery protected, it has a constant current and temperature regulation system. This ensures a steady beam of light and prevents overheating during extended use.

Looks nice. If only I hadn’t just bought the L18.

Acebeam makes a nice light. A bit on the pricey side.

The price on the L19 looks a little high, but I’m quite satisfied with the amounts I paid for my E10, L17, and L18. The more Acebeams I get, the more I like them.

Looks nice, but please keep things in perspective. Spec'd at less throw then the K1 with the Boost HX. I'd guess this light uses the Boost HX (rated lumens puts it in the realm) with a head diameter in the range of the K1, maybe smaller. It's been tough for TIR optics to beat a reflector in throw, though may have advantages with a tighter beam pattern, and that's an advantage for spotting game.

K1 w/Boost HX: 600 kcd rated, which is 1549 meters. The K1 has set the standard for lights in this class: single 21700 mid range thrower.

K1 will be my next light. Which is the best emitter to get with it? SBT90.2 has a huge premium. Is it worth it?

All depends what you want out of it. I got 2: the SBT90.2 and green LED. 

Initially got the K1 W1 (think Boost HL) and measured 4.8A, 655 kcd, ~900 lumens, so specs are real!

Then swapped the Boost HL with the green W1, tweaked up the amps by swapping a resistor up to 7.2A, then measured 730 kcd, ~960 lumens

For the SBT90.2 version stock, on a 40T measured 19A, 481 kcd (better than spec'd)

For the SBT90.2 version modded with spring bypasses, on a 30T measured 22.3A, 520 kcd (better than spec'd)

 

The Boost HL (W1) is pretty special and driver is regulated for the W1 and W2 versions. For the SBT90.2, it's driven by an open FET, therefore unregulated.

** Sorry, it's interesting comparing the L19 to the K1, but the optics of the L19 may be more desirable for hunting - wait til we see some beamshots.

is it the same tiny hotspot and almost no spill like e10? it is next to useless for hinting, pretty obvious whoever named it hunting, never hunted in his life. unless they mount it next to a scope on a rifle, but then i seriously doubt it’ll handle a recoil for long, if at all.

Nothing personal. I never heard of anyone hunting with a flashlight. You think the animals are that stupid? The idea of hunting is to outsmart what you are hunting for. Shining a high powered flashlight in the dark will give away your position and give the animals a sense of danger to move to a safer area. All you need is a dog and a gun.

im all for k1, but to be fair, k1’s head is much chunkier than this

Acebeam, you’ve got to do something about those side-switches; I always accidentally activate my lights in my coat pocket. The switch should be recessed to prevent this.

not to mention in usa, in most states there are rules for big game hunt, you can’t do it at night, even shining a light at a deer at night may get you in troubles, it is called spotlighting.

Possible, but we don't know the head diam of the L19 yet, unless I missed it somewhere. I'm guessing the L19 is 67-72 mm in diam, slightly less than a K1 most likely. The L19 steps up in width after the switch, and the K1 doesn't.

Maybe AceBeam can make a contest to guess the head diameter? Closest wins a L19? smile

Yep - I understand coyotes and wild boar are bout the only game for night hunting in the US? 

luminarium iaculator is a hunter and sells to hunters. I understood for rifle mounts, aspherics are preferred by him so as not to light the surrounding area. Thought he also thinks and stated "pencil beams" have a good application in hunting. I dunno myself - I only hunted in daylight, but maybe there are differing usage scenarios or preferences for night hunting?

Also there's been a push by a few New Zealand hunters here on BLF to always get more throw, and again, more throw generally means tighter hot spots. They've worked closely with MaxToch on Maxtoch's high performing throwers.

Ohh? Then it's like a different class, so the #'s would be quite good then, and can't compare to the K1.

yea, pretty much, you can also hunt small game, and do pest control at night. depends on a state too, i can’t say anything about NZ, their laws may allow nigh hunt for big game.

i.m sure l19 is a great light, i have few AB lights i like them, great quality, and design, but to call it hunting, idk, hunting is like tactical, marketing tricks

I emailed them repeatedly, and they finally replied to just simply refer me to their facebook site.

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

Yep, head diameter is 60 mm: https://www.acebeam.com/long-range-hunting-flashlight-19. Dunno how I missed this, or it was updated. I found a page on their site but didn't have the price or much details. Funny they avoid listing the full OSRAM part # - they list a "PM1", so could be either  KW CSLPM1.TG or KW CULPM1.TG. Based on the lumens rating, it should be the Boost HX (KW CULPM1.TG).

422 kcd seems possible in a 60 mm light, but the 1650 lumens rating sounds aggressive.

The lumen rating is believable for thre boost HX if properly binned and driven. If you look at the head, you can see extra heatsinking. That tells me they’re driving the emitter pretty hard (all the Osram L lights do). Osram lists or up to 1900 lumens. I’m super excited about this one. I’ve been waiting for an optic light with a boost hx and am glad Acebeam was first.

Dunno about that. My dog was a lousy shot.

I’m not an avid hunter, but I am pretty sure here in Texas you can hunt hog at night. They are an invasive species so the easier to get rid of them, the better

I love my wife’s toy poodle
