Double click for ON? Is this a joke?

All those holes, slots, grooves and ridges make for perfect mud and dirt catchers. Also XHP70 in such tiny host, arent there any better LED options? Pass.

Agree, those slots are asking for trouble. Nice looking but not for EDC purposes.

Yes, Double click for ON as for avoiding accidental activation.

It can be removed off to clean. Used the advanced CREE XHP70.2 LED.

I find it good looking, but “intuitive and practical” really made me LOL once I saw it was a 70.2 and double click on. Facepalm

If there was a momentary memorized on with a single press and hold and moon with a click hold this UI could actually work for me. But the SST70 would have been a MUCH better choice for a light this size. Fenix is getting that right at least. Nichia 144 or B35AM should be offered for High CRI

I like the concept, but can’t stand the look. I’m a fan of other ACEBEAM styles but this one is too tacky for me. Makes it look cheap. I don’t mind the idea of a double click to get to turbo to stop accidentally turbo flaming your pants off but needs to be single click for other modes.

I think it looks really nice with the blue accents and the twisty pattern.

Someone buys this and gets even the least bit familiar with it will be turboing any other light they pick up. Double click for ON… Facepalm

Double clicks ON that is designed to prevent accidental activation in pocket. Wink

In my humble opinion, an optional electronic lockout via 4 clicks from OFF is more convenient and more common. I have some doubts that „doubleclick“ from off is a good way to prevent accidental activation. Moreover, it clashes with the convention to turn on with turbo mode.

Maybe you could consider putting a Getian FC40 HighCRI LED into E70. It might cope better with these new design elements on the tube. To me E70 looks like a typical „lifestyle“ product but not like a tool for tough business - even worse as it seems the principle „function follows form“ is used here. The battery tube is a key element to pick up and dissipate the excess heat coming from the flashlight‘s head.

Double-click for on to prevent accidental activation is kind of irrelevant. This is what manual lockout or electronic lockout is for. This will be a deal-breaker for a lot of enthusiasts, but to be fair, it may appeal to regular users not used to double-click for turbo.

Why not revise the UI to remove the double-click and just make it single click?

Xhp70.2 in 6 volt generates a lot of heat at 5000 lumens and this little host with minimal thermal mass needs aggressive thermal throttling to keep it from melting.

I like the design, but I think a different emitter would have been better (sst70, hint, hint) Smile

Похоже ACEBEAM будет соревноваться с IMALENT в гонке просвета. Двойное безумие щелчка. Взрослый человек мог подойти к дизайнеру, сдуть со стола то, что он нюхал, взять карандаш и поправить.нога в рот

I agree so the turbo will last how long ? i wish acebeam didnt hide the runtimes like this, why not write honest and fair when stepdown can expect?

Double click from off is
for me to aktivate Turbo-nothing else.

Unintentional activation is a problem. 2 clicks for on might be a relatively simple solution that many could learn to live with. But I haven’t seen the rest of the UI. I don’t understand the advantage to all that fancy design on the handle. I will likely never buy anything cold white again. And I don’t believe there’s any evidence anywhere that strobe is going to disorientate an attacker. Please stop claiming such nonsense. Yes any bright light is going to slow someone down a tiny little bit. But your next move after hitting them with a bright light or a strobe better be really good.

Я поддержу. Фонарик - последнее, что вы используете для защиты. И уж точно не просыпайтесь, пытаясь ослепить злоумышленника морганием. На собак это совсем не влияет, а двуногое животное скорее остановит фонарик, используемый как тяжелый предмет.здорово

I like the look, but the info lux-perpetua shared about the importance of the battery tube in heat dissipation seems much more important than a flashy look, a 5000 lumen edc needs every advantage to dissipate heat, so the look must take a back seat to the function of its parts. Also, I don’t like the no mention of even a NW option on the website. I also don’t like 2x click for on, I’d rather 4 click for lockout. This brings me to – that must be an E-Switch tail switch? So the blue tube carries the signal from battery negative to positive, I assume ? Is there any potential hazard or drawback to having that signal tube exposed through slots in the handle? Like if you had change or a key in your pocket, could there be an accidental short? I don’t know I’m asking.

I like that they were trying to find a solution to accidental activations,shows they were probably taking suggestions or maybe even following many of the comments on (maybe) this forum that members were making about the fw3a and kr4 style tail switches activating in peoples pockets. But 2 clicks to on, I am curious if that helps at all. I have had my light 4 click locked out and still activate in my pocket due to how it was positioned while I sit while driving, specifically. So guess how I solved the problem? I moved the location of the light in pocket while I drive and no more accidental activation. Essentially I would rather make a small adjustment to how I carry the light instead of the manufacturer adjusting the UI. just my 2 cents.
