LUMENTOP E21C SST 40 QUESTION

This is kinda general so I guess I should post here.We need 24 floody type lights. Like these new (ish) “COB” lights.But of higher quality. Not the 3-10$ Amazon junkers.
Well made, with a real battery 18650 or 21700. We saw Fenix has this new light but it has NON changeable battery ( low MAH also) and after a quick burst, low lumens for 4 hours.WT16R.Would be perfect if a better changeable battery and a bit more lumens. Anyway…

Saw this (forget name) Wubens? never heard of them.Any good? Decent quality? Decently bright,floody….again,cant change battery.That said 5000 (claimed) MAH is decent.Decent lumens and decent run time.

last We found this EC21C. Not one youtube about or the usual tests all over the net, oddly.Not much even here.Cant find a graph/curve of this light (or the Wubens) JUST a general rune time.
We dont really need a normal light AND the COB flood,just the flood.If we HAVE to get a normal light also with it, fine.

So,anyone running this light? Any new (ish) COB only light. Like the Wubens but with a battery we can change out?

Last and confusing : At Neals place here is the light https://www.nealsgadgets.com/collections/lumintop/products/lumintop-e21c#
I am not sure if this is a typo or what is going on. ( side flood light) ONLY 240 lumens for 4.5 hours? How is that possible? LEDs from 10 years ago on a 5000 MAH battery could run that for what? 12-15 hours?

So, whats the scoop?

*Open to any ideas : Actual need Super floody light that is NOT a lantern.Want wall of light that can be be directed. Say 180 DEG or so,not 360.
Good quality,no need for waterproof but that is a plus.Just IPX 4-8 would be amazing.If possible a battery that can be changed.OR at least 250 lumens for 5 hours (more is a plus)
Kind of shocking that nobody else wants/has looked for something like this.

Anyone here old enough to remember the Surefire L4 “Wall of light” ? Heh ,went old school on the new guys.

Thanks in advance.

Wuben got back to me “high mode is not stable,will dim over time slowly”
Strange it cant regulate 300 lumens

Had a few Emails with Wuben techs.The last was about the 20 day period after a charge,when the light is dead (parasitic loss)
They told me the 20 day period is false and not sure where that info came from. (I have seen a few people say this)
I think he meant DEC 2020,not 2021. This tech said charged DEC and now July 14 it still has power. He did not say now much, could be 1% OR 50% who knows.
A third Email said after 3 months 50% or more will be kept.
Wonder how hard it would be for one of the supertechs here to put a meter on one and see Smile
Also told me the battery is NOT 18650 based.
**4 Emails about the LUMENTOP E21C SST 40 never answered.I have given up on this light and MFG

Dear customer,

We have checked your problem.
We get full recharge for the battery at December 2021, and don’t use them, the camping light still have the power now.

If you use the camping light frequently. The power will be discharged very soon.
In order to extended service life of the battery, if you don’t use the camping light, you need to get recharge for the battery every 3 months.

If you have any problems of the f5, please feel free to contact us, thanks

Best Regards,
Wincy

Got the Wuben F5, LOVE this light.I like it better than the BLF lantern for many reasons.Same for my Fenix.
Amazing camera fill light ,as well.

Got 23 more for my team, will get a bunch for gifts.
For my uses I rate it overall a 90 of 100 on my scale.

A few changes could make this a 100 of 100
