    IMALENT new product MS03 13000 LUMEN FLASHLIGHT

    Remarkable, however: Extreme heat within a few seconds, light weight = poor heatsinking, extreme flood from 3x XHP 70's in small reflector, stated throw doubtful, very short battery life. Good showoff light. brightnorm

    Emisar D4Svn V2 - Best 26650 Light R

    Vinh, I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with your D4Svn2. It's everything you claimed, and then some. In terms of focus and brilliance it truly blows away all my other D4S's, including: SST-20 5000K, SST-20 6500K, XP-L HI 6500K, and XP-L HI 5000K. I...

    ACEBEAM IMR 3100 mAh "PROTECTED"?????

    Best Flood/Throw combo flashlight on the market?

    My TN40S (CW) really lives up to the hype, especially considering how (relatively) short and compact it is compared to other super throwers. However, there is one big problem: the unavailability of a black belt holster. The only thing I could find was the"Flyye holster belt cordura pouch"...

    group buy for the Imalent DN35 (XHP35 Hi) awesome deal!

    I tried another more cumbersome approach; yours sounds better. Razor scratches for better glue adhesion? Will this do better than regular "2-ton" epoxy? Thanks, Brightnorm

    Imalent DN35---a powerful led flashlight up to 2200 lumrns

    Excellent Light with serious design flaw: Performance-wise the DN35 is an excellent light. Unfortunately, the ergonomic functionality is among the worst of the many lights I have used. Aside from the unnecessary second button, made superfluous by superior single button designs such as the...

    Zebralight SC600w IV Plus

    I have several recent Zebralights but I'm passing on this one because I prefer the "brighter" cool whites. I'm willing to sacrifice truer CRI for brightness. Call me troglodyte! Brightnorm

    Acebeam K65: XHP70.2 dedomed, 6200 lumens, 4xIMR18650, beamshots, compare

    I received what was supposedly the CW version, but was in fact the NW version. Frankly, I was disappointed with it compared with the CW K60. Where did you get the CW version? Brightnorm

    Thrunite TC20vn - Best Compact 26650 R

    Is it possible to dedome the XHP70.2 for better throw? I ask because I thought a dedome would provide more than an eighteen yard increase Factory TC20 XHP70.2 6500K Specs: Lumen 3500, 26Kcd, 323m $100 TC20vn XHP70.2 6500K + Factory UI Specs: Lumen 3700, 29Kcd, 341m Brightnorm

    Review: Nitecore MH23: XHP35 HD, 1800 lumens, 1x18650, beamshots, compare

    Can you please ask Nitecore of there is low voltage protection? I suspect there may be other owners who are interested in this. Brightnorm
