Thread: EIGER X

  1. #1

    Party EIGER X

    The new Eiger X QTC is here. I have a few in all metals HA-Brass-Stainless Steel
    We introduced the price at the same as our standard Eiger QTC. I also have a few
    in high CRI but very few so if you want them just call me or chat and let me know
    they are also the same price. These units put out about twice the power of our
    standard Eiger. They are also in only narrow optic which gives you a much better
    hotspot and a little more throw than the Vesuvius and a tighter beam, in addition
    you do not need an IMR 10440 to get maximum output.

    Thanks

    I just ordered a SS HCri.
    An HCri AAA that can throw like a Logan is what I am hoping for and Bob said it will put out about 225 Lumens with a 10440.

    Very interesting flashlight, specially since the difference in output is well compensated with the options of using multiple AAA chemistries compared to the Vesuvius that has more output but not many battery options, however theres one thing that could concern me about the life of the led: max. recommended drive current for an XP-G is 1.5A, and the Eiger X according to your page Bob are driven at 1.7A, with a much bigger heatsink volume or cooling surface that would still be concerning, but much more so with such a small light.

    Is the XP-G safer on the Eiger X than the XM-L in the Vesuvius?, wouldnt it have been safer to use an XM-L in these (of course the beam would have been another thing, and i do like the beam on my narrow Eiger)

    High CRI XM-L?

    If so please save me one also, SS preferred, but I'll do Al too.

    Bob, does it work with an Eneloop as well? If so, I would assume that output with an Eneloop is about the same as a normal Eiger head...?

    Thanks,

    I asked Bob about this, the Eiger X only works with 10440.

    Eiger X arrived a day early. I guess UPS is more efficient during the holidays. At first I was disappointed with the output which wasn't any brighter than a regular Eiger, however I then checked the voltage on the 10440 I was using and it was only 3.49 volts. I popped in a fresh 10440, 4.1 volts, and the light became considerably brighter than a narrow optic regular. I would have liked to try an IMR but I don't want to damage the light, which doesn't seem to get much hotter than a regular Eiger on a 10440.
    If anyone is wondering the output of the Vesuvius way way brighter and the throw is about the same.
    A non-QTC momentary does not work on this light.
    I don't regret buying this light, but I am glad I didn't get two as I'd originally planned.
    I'd like to know if the HCRI version runs creates less heat than the cooler version, since the output is lower or if heat is a function of the higher AMP.

    Bob,
    Is an IMR 10440 recommended for these? The amperage draw on a regular LiCo cell may be too great.

    Jabe1 not really recommended you get the max from a 10440 also more runtime
    Thanks

    As usual, my new EigerX high CRI is a beautiful light.

    It doesn't appear much brighter than my #8 Eiger 10280 though. I do have some IMR10440s on the way.

    I don't think my Ultrafires can support the current draw.

    Bob or Curt,
    Will an IMR10440 allow too high a draw?

    Peak does not recommend IMR10440 in the EigerX

    Bob,

    Can you do me a favor please?
    Try one of these in a 2xAAA body with Energizer lithiums (L92), I'm curious as to whether it will light.
    Thanks.

    Don't have any 2 X AAA bodies left but I don't think they will have the current flow
    Thanks
