I've been eagerly awaiting this review. The output is not as impressive as I'd hoped, but the runtime is pretty good. I wonder how it would perform on lithiums? How is it's weight compared to a Streamlight Jr. LED?
These are not my measurements; they're from QuickBeam's reviews. Sorry, I should have stated that.
The 2512AA's modest showing strikes me as odd. In June, somebody posted beam shots demonstrating his conclusion that the 2512AA was brighter, with more total light, than the Streamlight Jr. Luxeon. Or maybe better in one measure, but not the other. Does anyone have that link?
I really like the beam of the ALX-2512. The beam is more whiter than the Jr. Luxeon. My Jr. Luxeon has a slight green tint to it. The throw for both lights is about the same. The sidespill on both lights are equal.
I may get a few for gifts. The output is not outstanding, but still better than a standard 2D light. Throw is decent as well. Heck, it puts out more overall light and throws better than another benchmark, the UK 4AALED (a GREAT light). Runtime is pretty darn good.
Grandma and my wife had trouble pushing the tiny button on the UK...maybe the Nuwai is a little easier.
Remember that the luxeon lottery plays a large role in an idividual's experience when comparing the output and tint of a pair of lights. It's not surprising that different people's comparisons between the same two lights get different results, that's why multiple comparisons are better than one. I appreciate everyone's input.
