    This is the kind of light that I contemplate about when the question ..."If you can only have one light..." comes up ;-)

    Sorry I could not find the answer to this online and in videos, but can the turbo mode be memorized? Or does it always require a double press?
    vinh, stock numbers are 95kcd, do you think spec one is over 150kcd?

    FYI, stock is around only 75k CD according to multiple reviews.
    You and others like you might be the reason lights aren't (even) better made. People buying new flashlights like people devoutly buying the next generation of smart phones, are they pushing innovation or just consumption? Wider head for even more throw. Wow. That's new.

    Thanks. And I just noticed vinh has the lux numbers stated.
    But the turbo question is still unknown... anybody know the answer to this?

    Probably not memorized though iirc the tail button allows for instant access to turbo?

    Too bad HD didnt power more than I thought. I do like the beam more than HI though...XHP35 HI is a beast. Very close performace to the HD. Not like XPL HI VS XPL HD.

    Just saw a couple of video reviews of this (stock) light. I totally want one now haha. Can't decide over the HI or HD yet. Probably couldn't tell the difference in lumen output, but the beams are obviously quite different. Can't wait to see beam shots whenever Vinh is able to do them.

    HI

    If HD was the same price then get both but since HD is more expensive then HI. haha

    Haha. But you also said you like the HD beam better haha. Although, you did say that HI is a beast. It also has twice the lux, which for this light I would probably want. So I suspect I will get the HI. Oh who am I kidding. I'll just head over to the site and order now haha.

    HD has better beam but noticeably less throw while overall output is close. Like I said HD is nice company but HI is a must have. I LOVE this light!

    Anyone know where to get the filters for this light? Maybe they're not available yet?

    I think this is exactly the light I have been waiting for, and I am really excited about it! I think I am set on the HI, but am wondering whether I should get the 6500k or the 5000k. Does anyone have a strong preference (and why?), and what does the difference in performance look like?

    Thanks!

    Difference in performance is negligible. If this is your general purpose light I think HI 5000K is nice. If this is your tactical light then HI 6500K might be more irritable.

    I've just oredered one from Vinh with the 5000k HI because I prefer neutral white, even for "tactical" flashlights. I imagine that there will be a slight loss in both lumens and lux but it should be difficult to notice with the human eye.
    I'll try to do some beamshots when I receive it 😉

    Edit: beat by Vinh himself

    Thank you both for responding so quickly! This will be for tactical use, but I think the 5000k will be a little easier on my own eyes. I will go order one now. Thanks again!

    Hey Vinh, if I run the LG 3500 IMR (10A) instead of the VTC5 (30-35A, which you recommend) I should get a lot better run time. Any idea how many lumens I'll lose on turbo?
