Arrived today. I love it, although I wish there had been candle mode. Nonetheless it is the usual Lumintop quality – just excellent.

Thanks a lot for this.

My CL2 arrived within nine working days.

The color temperature is 3650K (BLF LT1: 2750K, Zanflare T1: 2800K).
Measured with the Whitebalance-Tool in Adobe Lightroom.

Energy consumption is 4.9W in Turbo mode.

The Lantern can be powered via USB-C even without inserted cells.

Conclusion:
10€ cheaper than the Sofirn BLF LT1 and smaller, but only neutralwhite.

cool That's a rather new method for me to estimate the color temperature of a flashlight.

But how do you know that your camera captured white balance accurately?

This method is not exactly accurate unless proven with a sekonic c-800? I shoot in RAW and black drop happened to be 50% gray.

The image sensor captures each photon and does store the results as digital RAW. So Adobe Lightroom/Raw Converter reads out the values.
It is very accurate, like +/- 50K.

I got mine a few weeks ago and am really impressed. I love the AA or lion choice and the usbc charging for the 14500s. The size is perfect for most of my needs and I love the SST20 leds. I still love my LT1, but if I can get a code I would love to order another one for my sons’s truck.
Excellent lamp. Thanks

Yes, but you still need to tell Lightroom what the true white balance value is. You can choose “Auto” in Lightroom, but that’s no guarantee that it’ll be correct. I’ve been using Lightroom for almost a decade, and I know it’s a crap shoot.

Best way is to place a grey white balance card in your photo and use that to set white balance in Lightroom.

You misunderstood the topic. It’s abut finding out the color temperature of the lantern, not about editing the picture and setting the white balance in the image file.
And finding out the white balance ist accurate with Lightroom.
A greycard isn’t neccesary if you take a defocused picture or blur it afterwards.

Still interested, even though it has no magnet. Maybe I can fix that.

I won’t say that I’m 100% satisfied.

The light itself is great. I’ve always wanted an AA based quality lantern. My problem is the 5000-6000k. Mine is definitely not warm, especially compared to the LT1. There no ‘‘warm white magical camping mood’‘. It works but… meh…

sealed I'm quite sure it is in 3650-4000K for medium brightness. You mean they used new emitter now? When did you order yours?

I was among the first 30. I’ll try to take a picture compared to my LT1. It’s definitely not in the 3000K range. I would even be surprised if it in the 4500k range but I have no way to test that.

Beside the LED tint, this little lantern is great. High quality build and a lighted switch running from AA is a huge plus for me.

The CL2 has never been advertised as warm white, so why do you expect it anyway?

I wrote the exact color temperature (3650K) in post #126:

Not neccesary, BLF LT1 has 2750K. Lumintop CL2 has 3650K.

Why it’s called CL2? Yeah Klarus has model called CL1, but is that the reason? Or is there Lumintop CL1 coming? Shocked

CL2 means Clone of LT1 Too (as well)
