AKU review March blockbuster ---- Night Owl of Love DT-20 Double XML


Hello Everyone,

Long-awaited, I got the Owl!


SKILHUNT artwork with delicate craftsmanship. Notice: Not just a tool, it’s an artwork!

Design is beyond my mind.. So fashion and So cooooool!






Pictures:




Comfortable hold. Never slip like the cylindrical body flashlight.




Look at this futuristic light.




So masculine looks in this side.









Details:






High mode discharge graph:




Good heat dissipation:




Transverse beamshot:
Left-to-right, High-Mid-Low


Vertical beamshot:
Left-to-right, High-Mid-Low


Outdoor beamshot:

Light pollution is everywhere, really hard to find a totally dark place.
10 meters:
No light - Single led - Double led



No light - High - Mid - Single high




50 meters:





50 meters: No light - Single high - Double high



About 70 meters:




200 meters( but there is a big light on the right)


My comments:
Beauty and complex CNC machining.
Double side switch
One for turn on/off and transfer single or double leds.
One for mode transfer.
Easy to transfer mode with your thumb and forefinger.

Suggestions:
Brightness only 1100 Lumens for 2 U2 LED is a little conservative. 1600 lumens will be better.
It will better if have lock-out function.
Use polymer battery may be more fit for this body. And with car charger.

Thanks for watching.
English is not my native language. If presented in the wrong way, please let me know. I would appreciate that. Thanks.

Wow. Seeing this light in black (I am used to seeing the polished version at CNQ) makes it alot more attractive. If they drove it closer to 2.5A per LED It'd be much more tempting. 

Thanks for the great review and fantastic photography!

Great use of photo's for the review and they look fantastic! 

 

I think the black is wayyyyy better looking than the polished aluminum.

Sure did, and thanks! That looks sharp. Had no interest in the silver.

Appreciated!

Nice review.

That in black looks a million times better than the shiny one.

thanks for sharing
