    Default Wuben A21 - Any reviews / experiences?

    Like the look of the new A21 but can seem to find any in-depth reviews online.
    Anyone know if the claimed 4200 Lumens is accurate & how quickly it steps down?

    Any comments from owners would be appreciated

    Probably going to get either the Wuben A21 or Emisar D4S

    I love the flashlight but I have encountered a problem. The S-O-S feature flashes S-O-O. I am trying to verify if this is a widespread occurrence or if I have an isolated bad apple. I don't know what my recourse is as of yet. As for output, it seems bright and floody in my NW version. No way for me to determine it's intensity but I would say it is brighter than a THRUNITE TH30 which claims 3350 lumens with the 70.2 I have in CW.

    1) I've just got one - so will use this thread to report back on it

    2) And - lol - yes it does denote 'S.O.O.' on SOS Mode!! Well-spotted

    Hey no problems buddy! For me, it's an amusing quirk - & a rescue helicopter's not exactly gonna pass us over because of a mis-spelt plea for help!

    Dang, I should of watched that video closer... Clearly shows S-O-O. Lol! Did anyone realize this or was I the first??? Does anyone have an A21 with correct S-O-S? What about their other lights with the similar USB-C charging, driver and firmware?

    Quick update - it's fecking fantastic! I don't begrudge their packaging colour-scheme mimicking that of Olight's - their execution & quality seems to be right up there with Olight (beyond?).

    Replying to update my input for this light, but also to bump the thread as this really is a fantastic light - people need to know! A true hidden gem from left-of-field!!

    So I've also recently acquired the Olight R50 Seeker Pro - and heck, there's even scope to say that the Wuben is even better-executed (finishing, engineering, etc).

    The Wuben and Olight's beam profiles are almost exactly the same. Brightness on Turbo for each - in real life the difference isn't readily discernible - basically both are pocket rockets!

    Beam profile a good balance of flood (for walking) and throw (good for dead ahead on a forest trail).

    UI - the opposite of Olight's very intuitive interface. So on the Wuben - click for On, long-click for off, short clicks whilst on goes through the brightness settings. No special 'Turbo' action - it's simply stacked at the top end of the brightness settings.

    More soon if I think of anything,
