Sunwayman D40A (XM-L2 | 4 x AA) Review

Great review.


so how much is this?

haha nice an easy maths, thnx for the heads up :wink:

Hi Kokopelli, congratulation on your purchase of the great D40A!! :wink:
Well, might be a little bias coming from someone who ended up with 2 units - it is a Yes! If you’re interesting, over here are some interesting comparison of the beam profiles between different units, and observations from other members :slight_smile: Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the review! Frontpage’d and Sticky’d.

Thank you so much for the great review!

Thanks for the review, turboBB. I’m definitely getting one. Does anyone know who has the best price? Just from some quick looking around, it looks like WallBuys.

I purchased mine from doingoutdoor for $58.00 couple of days ago. But it seems they increased their prices recently :_(

Found this on another forum…

It’s still at $58 with coupon code.

It seems that I totally forgot about the coupon code lol.
So sorry about that

I just got one from Wallbuys last instant kill game for $54.80 and it should be here Monday :slight_smile: They haven’t done too bad lately getting packages to me here in the USA in 8-10 days.

Guys, there was a reason for the obscure mathematical references to price.

Now that you've posted prices here in plain text, I wonder if Sunwayman will come down heavy on DoingOutdoor the way they did with Fasttech.

Seems they are also a company that doesn't want their outlets listing prices below MAP.

Ah well....

Well, I was checking my D40A emitter for centering, admiring the orange peel, etc. All with the emitter within 18 inches of my face. Need I say more?
Yes, I accidentally hit the on switch. OOOH WEEE! A face full of furious D40A! Fortunately, I keep the mode set to medium (220 lumens). It must have taken me about 5 minutes to recover.
Note to self: Keep the mode set at low (30 lumens) going forward. This is not a tail clicky, and it’s not your father’s incan.

Bill from says that his D40A in neutral white is a 4C tint.

Can anyone verify this ? I can’t find their listed specs about the tint anywhere…

I like what I see with this light, but I’m not willing to pay their asking price considering the other options. $50 is a bit steep IMO, but at $80-90 no thanks!

Seeing them enforce MAP pricing has really eroded my image of them, guess they want to be too “premium” for their customers.

I got one from doingoutdoor, not sure which tint number it is, but it surely looks neutral to me ;)!

And yes, this light is pricey, however it is considered to be sort of higher quality, premium’ish brand.

That doesnt meant your light will be perfect upon reception, some have had issues with theirs.
