    Will be hard to measure because the temp sensor will decrease the output ( will flash 4 times) when the temp will be too high to protect your led. That's why I did my lux reading with a fan on the light.

    Aldiggi, your Predator Limited Edition looks nice and focused unlike mine. Maybe armytek has fixed the focusings on their Limited Edition Predator v3s. Perhaps I should maybe also wait for Armytek to release v3.5 so I can contact them and tell them about the flickering issues and uncentered LED I have on mine. Perhaps they'll give me a 3.5 in exchange.

    FYI: High Temperature Indication. At critical level the LED flashes 4 times once and the light output decreases by 35%. In case the temperature doesn’t fall the light output decreases to the Firefly mode. At normal temperature the brightness increases to usual level.

    With ambient temperature +25°C the flashlight delivers light in Maximum mode for about 6-10 minutes before the temperature reaches
    critical level and brightness decreases. After cooling-down (provided that battery voltage is sufficient) the brightness increases to the
    Maximum mode again. This stepping goes cyclically to maintain the user's safety and the flashlight's functionality. In conditions of good air-cooling the flashlight delivers constant light even in Maximum mode. There are no preset timers for stepping, but real-time
    active temperature measurements.


    Non-pro versions have only buck drivers; max output is kept constant as long as the cell voltage is above the minimum needed by the driver to power the emitter at max output, and the light temperature is not critical. The pro versions have boost/buck drivers that can maintain constant max output considerably longer. Nonetheless, below a certain cell voltage, even the boost driver will not be able to power the emitter at max output.

    That's where I took my Barracuda. A chance that it was in reduction one day. 19.00can for shipping, 35.00 can for the duties.... That's why I don't buy often from the USA.

    I took my PP and DB from MacOutdoors in BC.

    I bought my mc3000 from Asia, 125 can, free shipping and no duties.

Now what I want to know is how do the other comparable throwers compare as far as beam quality. Hope you guys enjoy the little I have provided about this particular flashlight.

    Hey there! I agree, I definitely love my Armytek Predator V2.5. Had it since it came out (3 years ago,I think?).

    Anyway, just read your quick review. Are the preds programmable again? From what I know, Armytek stopped making them programmable after the v2.5, correct me if I'm wrong. I'd love to get myself another pred if they are.

    It is not but you have the last mode used including strobe (minus high) if you open it unscrewed, with head screwed, always high. The only programmable option, if I can call this way, it is that you can remove the strobe/firefly1.

    This ringy beam pattern is killing me. I might just exchange or return the PP.

    I can live with it. I paid for it to give me throw and that it certainly does. Very happy with my lights. I was just overly concerned I guess.

    Not much difference anymore on the Viking and the Predator. The Viking used to be floodier than the predator if I'm not mistaken. At least my 2.5 viking is floodier than my Predator LE, but the LE is supposed to be more of a thrower than the regular predators. The dobermann has a smaller head and less throw. All are one 18650 lights.

    You didn't ask, but the Barracuda throw further than all of the above, has a very large head (64 versus the 41mm head of the predator/viking. It can run off the one or two cell tubes that come with it.

    Thanks. I'm pretty new to the world of flashlights. I currently have a Thrunite TN12 2016 and a Ti3. I am currently eyeing up something with a bit more throw to impress the friends I don't have and Armytek and Eagletac are the ones that currently have my interest. It will be interesting to try something with a different emitter from the TN12, so I'm interested in something with an XP-L HI.

    LOL,

    If you are just looking to impress and not practicality (at least for most people), then get a Barracuda, or Olight Javolet they are pure throwers. Eagletec (already on your list) also has a thrower, although i don't remember the model number. Hell, even a Convoy C8 would be more than most people have...

    I'm more interested in something like the Predator or Viking. I like the form factor and general look of that kind of light. If I get addicted I may end up looking at some of the ultra throwers in future, but right now I'm just looking for something a little bit bigger than the TN12 with more of an emphasis on throw. I was originally looking at the Thrunite TC10 but I want to experiment with other brands and I don't think the performance of the TC10 would be very much different to that of the TN12.

    Besides my little rant about the ring very happy with my lights. I love the style, look and performance of Armytek. A lot of the other lights look alike. The ATs are very distinguishable.

    Tail cap performance is among the best I have ever tried. In low light tactical training you are trained to use quick burst of light when doing a room entry to view your surroundings and possible adversary. Here is just a little example of the PP

    You should do it again but smashing doors. That way we could see the strength of the Predator.
