    (L to R: Acebeam L15, Rayus PT10, Olight M22, Foursevens Maelstrom MM-X, Acebeam T15)



    The T15 is a relatively new model from Acebeam (formerly known as Supbeam), designed as a more compact tactical style flashlight with a slightly smaller head.



    The T15 features a distinctive pattern on the body tube and tailcap (not traditional knurling) that does offer adequate grip.





    The tailcap features three (3) protrusions to allow a more stable tailstanding.







    Overall machining quality has improved over the Supbeam-era quality levels, definitely on par with Olight, Klarus, or Sunwayman (perhaps even slightly better, at least w/ my sample).



    Another thing to note is that the stainless steel bezel DOES NOT PRESS against the glass lens. A similar setup is also employed on other flashlights like the Klarus XT11 which increases the impact resistance of the relatively fragile glass lens by placing it BEHIND an aluminum shelf. This way the impact forces from the steel bezel get transferred to the aluminum instead. Unfortunately most flashlights aren't designed this way. The Foursevens Maelstrom MM-X's bezel for example does sit directly over the glass lens and the consequences of which are obvious in this picture:



    Mode switching on the T15 is done by loosening then tightening the head while the flashlight is on (moon, low, mid, high, strobe). The current level is memorized (including strobe). This is similar to Olight M22 but without the double and triple-click shortcuts on the Olight.

    Overall a very well put together piece of kit with a design that is a departure from the earlier lights from the company. And to reiterate, top notch machining. Definitely recommended.

    Nice find Overclocker. This light just went to the top of my list. I'm curious to know what the price is and if it's a forward or reverse clicky. But so far I haven't been impressed with the UI's of the two button lights I've seen.

    Thanks Overclocker, I'm waiting for this light to show up in the usual distribution channels. Also noticed Acebeam has a T15S that is dual switch. If the T15S model had the same lumen outputs that the T15 has with the same UI (click instead of twist obviously) I would totally go for the S model. Makes me wonder how this light compares to the Thrunite TN12.
