Edit 1: Does anybody own ACEBEAM K60? Do you mind sharing your experience with it? How far does it illuminate in metres? Have you ever tested it? And lastly how is the flooding? Thank you.
I want to buy my very first flashlight. What I am looking for is a flashlight that has the best combination of flooder and thrower. But what is the best? Perhaps everyone will have their “best” regarding to their preferences. So the more opinions I get the better I can decide.
Here are my preferences:
1) A flashlight that can illuminate up to 1000 metres,
2) A flashlight that is also a good flooder so that I can also see near objects clearly up to 100 metres,
3) A flashlight company with a good customer support and technical support.
During my research I have found some flashlights.
I have read that;
ACEBEAM K70 has a design problem that results in short circuit,
ThruNite TN40S/TN42 has a bug while switching from normal modes to turbo.
ACEBEAM K60 seems like a good candidate but I am not sure about the throw. I have seen ThruNite TN40S is a really good combination but the bug while switching through modes made me thinking.
Haha, I am really sorry about confusing you. English is not my native language. Let me try to explain again.
I would like to have a flashlight that is not a like laser, only illuminates the far distance but also one that has a very nice beam profile so the light smootly lights up the near objects and as well as the distance. Hopefully this helps. Cheers.
Zoomie is a light with an action called zooming - you adjust the beam width from wide and moderately bright to narrow and very intense.
They tend to be superb throwers (no spill to distract your eye, good throw-to-size) and superb flooders (very smooth beam) in the same package, but not without drawbacks:
the common zoomies are very inefficient in the throw mode - the beam is bright but narrower than that of a reflector light
unlike with reflector, you can have flood or throw, but never both at the same time. If you look far, you won’t see what’s under your feet.
often they have worse cooling than similarly sized reflector lights
typically you’re limited to using a single LED, so they won’t get close to the output of mega-flooders. No multi-led zoomie I’m aware of is good enough.
There are less common types that are better or worse in one way or another, I won’t elaborate on them now because I don’t see one that would work well for you.
Well, I don’t see a stock zoomie that would match the description, so if you want that route, you’re limited to modded lights. I’d suggest UniqueFire UF-1508 T75 with (dedomed?) XHP70.2.
