A few words for Amutorch JM70 (xp-l hi) :
JM70 is a compact thrower , powered by 1*26650 . Combines small weight and size , but provides good runtimes and throw .
First Look :
Flashlight in it’s box , a simple brown box :
As you see it has Galuxia written on it , it’s the brand that makes the JM70 .
Package Contains :
- User manual (in chinese)
- Spare o-ring
- Spare Lens
- Spare rear switch
- Extra rubber boot
A closer look :
You can see the flashlight , it has a pretty nice design for a small size thrower , using a single 26650 but a large reflector .
Here are it’s dimensions i measured :
Total length : 170mm
Tube diameter : 32mm
Head diameter : 72mm
Weight : 303gr
JM70 uses a dual switch system . Tailcap switch works as an on/off switch and changes modes through the e-switch .
On the head , we can see the e-switch . It has a nice rubber button :
On the head it has the manufacturer and the model , one on each side :
I guess you already saw that blue bezel it has , indeed it looks very nice :
Flashlight has a big SMO reflector , it’s diameter is around 61mm :
The LED is a Cree xp-l hi :
Led is on a big 32 mm DTP MaxToch mcpcb , on a solid shelf (pic coming soon) .
Lens are AR coated :
Head has some great cooling fins :
Tube has a square knurling , provides enough grip i think :
On the end , with the tail switch , lanyard can be attached too :
To load the battery , you have to uncrew the tube , it doesn’t have a tailcap :
Fits most batteries , even the longest protected cells . Here is with a Liitokala cell , and with the spring uncompressed :
Threads are anodized :
On the head side , the driver has a spring on the positive side , and a brass ring on the ground ring :
A comparison pic with the well-known UT-02 :
How it works (&modes) :
It has 5 normal modes , Low - Medium - High - Strobe and Turbo .
Flashlight uses the switch at the tailcap for on/off function , basically as a lock-out switch .
After you turn on the rear switch :
If you press the side switch once , it opens at the lowest mode if you just turned the rear switch on , or the last used mode if flashlight was on (coming from (*) ).
With another single press it cycles though the modes Low-Mid-High-Strobe
Double click turns the light on at Turbo .
By operating a longer press at the side switch , turns the flashlight off (*) .
Liitokala 5000mAh battery was used in all measurements
- Low - 36 lm
- Mid - 253 lm
- High - 512 lm
- Turbo - 1022 lumens
Intensity : 216kcd
My runtime test :
High mode :
Turbo mode :
At the end of the road is about 160m :
Beam is intense , giving the light some serious throw .
Extra beamshot at 80m :
A compact thrower , equipped with a nice & big SMO reflector . Anodization and it’s quality in general is great , output is close to the rated specs , and the only thing that maybe some people will need some time to get used to it is the UI .
An awesome mid sized thrower , with great runtimes and very good throw ! For me , and with that throw , it is a very good VFM (value for money) product .
Comment if you want me to check something on the flashlight , or tell your opinion . Thanks !

Warning ! Here are some words from the manufacturer :
JM70 is our new product in 2017, had gone through two improvements. Because friends buy at a different time, there may be some differences with different tailcaps, with different mcpcb boards, with different modes etc.
About the sign on the box, Galuxia is also the trademark of our company. it’s brand Galuxia that makes on the flashlight, so Galuxia been written on the box.
The current sale of JM70 light is the same as the store described, low-mid-high-brightest(quick double)cycle -strobe(quick three click).
