    What is the tint option for this light?
    Cool White? Neutral White?

    This has been my question as well since they released a pass around R&D sample a few months ago. If it's NW and the right price I'm definitely in for one. I might still be even if it is CW.

    Is this press and hold like the G30 I got rid of? If someone could clarify the instant access to low/turbo, I might be jumping on one of these..

    Yea think it is reading all the bumpf.
    I want to know what the realistic temp step down gets down too. The medium mode is really low for a chunky light like this. Was hoping for a constant 1200 lumens.

    Studying the literature, press releases, and pass around info, it appears to be another MUGGLE Turbo mode model, this one claiming 45 minutes on Turbo in the BJ listing. How would you like to carry around a 26650 pipe bomb, pressing and holding to pump out enough amps for 3000 lumens during 45 minutes? Welcome to the KLARUS reality distortion field everybody.

    Once on turbo through main mode selection it stays there like g30.
    Rear switch is just a guaranteed turbo bump in the night facility.

    Here is the pass around thread that contains a brief impression review of the G20 pre-production sample.

    So far, only 1 member, i.e. @MikeB posted his impression and some photos of the light.
    The description page also indicates that the pass around light uses the XHP-50 emitter with lower max lumens rating.

    I'm actually quite interested how this light handle the Turbo mode, i.e. is it time step down, thermal step down or non-regulated, as the drop from Turbo to the next mode is quite steep.

    It is thermal. I need to know what it roughly can drop to and withstand. Thats the only pain with thermal control. Unless I buy a light I have no idea how bright it will be for me constantly. Need reviews !

    So I am seeing preorder prices of $98.95, think I will have to pass at that price.

    The price is also too high for my liking.
    I also don't need the included 26650 battery as I prefer to source my own, so I think I'll pass

    very big jump from high 650lm to turbo 3000lm! How long G20 can stay on turbo mode before it step down to high mode?

    I like the spacing on this one. It sounds like generally about ~4x the lumens will be perceived as ~2x in brightness. I like there's only 4 modes to cycle through. I guess this light is more floody as the beam distance and cd is shorter and less
    than the other lights in this class (Olight R50 Seeker, Acebeam EC50, etc).

    Hello Klarus,

    The G20 pass-around thread says the G20 can use 26650 or 18650 batteries "(1 x 18650 or 1 x 26650, has adapter for 18650)".
    I just saw on the Klarus site to not use 18650 batteries in this flashlight. Can you please confirm the G20 takes only 26650 batteries?

    Also, can you please tell me if the 26650 battery that comes with the G20 is protected or unprotected?

    Thank you.

    Yes, it is. the battery with from Klarus is protected 26650.

    The key is to look at quantity available(=0). Instead of closing the auction, many sellers put an outrageously high number so no one bids. Then, when new stock comes in, they lower the price and are good to go. If they close the ad, they have to rewrite everything, new photos, etc...

    Interesting light, and i have some questions/opinons about it.

    1. The lowest mode at 15 lumens is quite high and will not preserve nightvision. A moonlight mode at 0,5 lumens would have been better as the lowest mode.
    2.Is the micro usb port covered with a rubber flap? Is the charging port it self waterproof without any flap protecting it and exposed to water?
    3.The sideswitch looks like it has a quite protruding button. Does the light have a lockout mode to prevent accidental activation?
    4.How long G20 can stay on turbo mode before it step down to high mode?

    Received mine the other day. Initial thoughts...
    Four nicely spaced modes, holds turbo without having to keep a switch pressed.
    Low could be lower, but the only way would be a fifth mode of 1 lumen, or so.
    Neutral white output, with a slight tendancy to cw, but no blue.
    The four levels are very evenly spaced, the jump from high to turbo appearing to be a doubling of the output.
    Whilst held in my hand, the drop from turbo to high took longer than six minutes to happen, didnt check it just sitting on a benchtop.
    You can feel the torch head, and around the side switch area heat up quite quickly, but not to a point where its difficult to hold.
    Virtually no hotspot to speak of, those 3klms are very well dispersed.
    Very compact for a 26650 torch, cell just squeaks into my VC2 charger.
    Dont bother if you want a thrower.....it doesnt.
    If you want something to light that path well, with no dark spots, then you've found what you're looking for.
    Will try to post a couple of beamshots tonight.


    NOTE; Please ignore these pics, overexposed and poor focus. See next post for proper pics.
    Maybe the esteemed moderator would be kind enough to please remove the images on this post, as I don't have the brains to do so, thankyou so much.

    Your initial impression sounds great! So it's more neutral than CW? Oh good! I can't wait for your beamshots. Thanks for posting!

    No worries Wendee, they'll be Jpeg format though, but quite safe to open. For some reason, I cant post a pic like others....ohh well, what to do.

    First tree at 8 Meters. Second tree at 25 Meters. End of street approximately 75 Meters.

    Pics are ambient light,
    A SWM V20C for comparison, 423 Lumens,
    G20 Klarus on medium, 160 Lumens,
    G20 Klarus on high, 650 Lumens,
    G20 Klarus on turbo, 3,000 Lumens.

    Yeah, posting images can be a hassle. You have to upload them up to an image hosting web site. I use postimage.org, among other reasons, because you can upload images without signing in or creating an account.

    Your image should be small, no more than 800 pixels on its largest dimension. I often go with 720, 600, 480, or lower. postimage.org has the ability to resize images for you, but I usually do it myself, before uploading.

    Use the "Direct Link" from the image hosting site after clicking the "Insert Image" icon here at CPF.

    great pictures, sorta confirms it is super floody so really has limited use, feels like its already behind the times and would really benifit from a xhp35 hi.
