Thanks for updating the review shooter. Nice to know that you are still favorably impressed with the light…even with it’s shortcomings in the amp dept. Hope MAXToch can release a 6 amp version soon!
Are you doing anything to replace the glue/sealant on the head threads before leaving it at the bottom of the pool? The glued head might be an integral part of the waterproofing required for diving… :quest:
This has one access, the head/body tube junction. The tube is a solid affair with a solid base. Threads appear tight and the o-ring fits well, so well that it needs to be slowly tightened as the o-ring goes under the head lip to keep it from pinching the ring. It appears very well sealed at the head/body junction. No oil or grease added as the unit came with a light grease already on the threads and o-ring. The glue/sealant is where the circuit board meets the head. Its on permanently as best I can tell. And it’s too late to worry about it, I pitched it in an hour ago. I might mention I paid for this light so what it can or can’t do is going to be told.
Thanks for the review, should shed some more light into what people are expecting to get from the GB.
Thanks for the review Texas shooter.
Wow…this is WAY smaller than I anticipated!
Thanks shooter for the pics. Look forward to more pics later.
I feel like that’s the case with everything I order online.
Any new pics for us, shooter?
I’ve got 5 much better pictures to post
Showing to evolution of this light from the DX21 to the BL20 and the original short TC-750X.
Now the backsides
Topside and inside.
My hand for some size reference.
If I had to build a light for the above average Joe this would be it. It’s bright, doesn’t roll from were you set it. It manages heat well, not getting too hot and is small enough to fit in a pocket. It runs on a 26650 for plenty of run time. Only has one opening and is truly waterproof. It feels solid no sense of flimsy anywhere on it. That battery status light keeps you from guessing or topping off too much. If I had to improve anything it would be to replace the o-ring with a silicon o-ring for their toughness. As a true flashaholic I like it, but am now truly waiting for the divers version. We flashlight junkies know not to run that turbo mode until the leds melt of their pads. For everyone else this is a great light, for us its a good starting point. Looking at the flashlights that Maxtoch has lined up I believe their on the right track with quality lights.
Wow, this is heaps smaller than I thought it was going to be!
If they run it with at least 4.5A - 6.0A NW, I believe many will pull the trigger to buy it.
Hoping they release higher current version soon and do another group buy.
Once the diving version is available, I’ll let you know.
I’ts been a month and I still use and carry this light on a regular basis. Finish is still almost blemish or scratch free. The light has a tough finish and grows on me. For the price and performance I still recommend this light as a “should have one”.
Nice…has anyone received this GB light yet???
DX21 sent later than 2X. It should be received in these days.
Thank you, Texas Shooter
My DX21 arrived together with the 2X 2 weeks ago in Australlia. This is my first multi emitter light. Using it tonight as picnic light in a Christmas Carols by Candlelight by the beach. Forecast temps a pleasant 22deg.C.
Amanda, any updates on the 2000lumen dive version?
Every turning on of this light there is a couple minutes wait for it to turn on. I have to press every few seconds hoping it will turn on quicker. Once on, shifting to diferent modes is fine. Fully charged batt is used and tightened well enough for the blue switch light to flash. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks.
Most divers suggest us to design deeper diving depth for DX21. Now it is designed to be waterproof underwater 200feet. It is not enough for some cave explorers and bubble divers. Thus we are still improving its waterproof performance now.
Thanks for your concern.
