Is it regulated? Got enough DD lights. Holly molly, Amazon wants 95 bucks. No thanks.

It’s a boost driver. 6V for XHP70.2; 12V for GT-FC40.

Ah yes, XHP70.2 6volt. How’d I miss that. Thanks.

If you see a flashlight with these LED’s, is it safe to assume the light must be using a boost driver?

Thanks for the info. I’ve ordered one. Sustained brightness for size is very impressive.

I love this light!

 

 I really like your review style RC!

 

Short and to the point and if i didnt own it this would be the review id want to read. I dont need 2,000 words when 200 will do!

 

I have aluminum gt fc40 3000k and a Stainless Steel xhp70 4000k. and i love them both equally.

Nice review, thanks.

For some reason this light seems too big in my opinion.

There was a post on reddit to the effect that acebeam were working on a smaller form factor of the E70

I am not an expert by any stretch but if it is a single cell light the answer is yes. If it were a 2 series cell light it would be a buck driver. Anyone please correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, XHP70.2 can be wired in 6v or 12v configuration. GT-FC40 is always 12v. If it’s a single cell, it has a boost driver.

Two series cells for XHP70.2 could be buck, linear or even direct drive if wired in 6v. Most XHP70.2 lights I’ve seen are set up for 6v operation.
