    Acebeam EC65 review (21700, 4x XHP35 HI, cool white)

    And yes I agree double click from turbo to return to previously used level should have been implemented.

    Acebeam EC65 review (21700, 4x XHP35 HI, cool white)

    Yes that does sound like decent mode spacing. I've been toying with swapping in the throwier optic, but I do enjoy the great wide ball of light it spits out currently. Also iirc this results in more of a yellowish center than that obtained with the super floody optic... After using this light...

    Acebeam EC65 review (21700, 4x XHP35 HI, cool white)

    I got the EC65 in July of 2019 and I find it quite useful. It is my most often used EDC light presently (I carry several most of the time!) I have the floody optic in it, probably the 10623, I'm not quite sure and haven't had time to compare it. Anyway it's a great floody beam perfect for...

    Manker E02 L shaped AAA 220 Lumens magnet tailcap multifunction flashlight is releasi

    Thanks Maukka! Presumably that tells us it's PWM and the LED current is lower on high?

    Zebralight SC600Fd Mk III Plus first impression (pic heavy)

    [I'm still interested in this light, but would like to know how the beam angle compares to the S41/E14? I'm also interested in how CREE achieves the high-CRI. I agree, hi-CRI tends to evoke thoughts of increased deep red, and that's how I usually think about it and explain it to others. It's...

    Re: [DEAL] Astrolux S41 4x Nichia 219B/ CREE XP-G2 A6 1600LM Mini LED Flashlight Haha!!! That's really loving' the light! Yeah, it's a great overall design.. I'll probably put in Bistro at some point, but other than that it's almost perfect. I especially like the wide...

    [DEAL] Astrolux S41 4*NICHIA 219B/ 4*CREE XP-G2 A6 1600LM Mini Quad LED Flashlight

    Re: [DEAL] Astrolux S41 4x Nichia 219B/ CREE XP-G2 A6 1600LM Mini LED Flashlight Urrrk, it is evidently backordered:( but I have been charged an amount intermediate between the cost of the order with the S41 and the cost without. Confused :confused:

    Manker E14 (4*Cree XP-G2/ Nichia 219B) is releasing

    I'm using LG HG2 in mine, which is quite comparable to the 30Q. As I understand it, the big problem starts when you both use a high discharge cell and bypass the springs with copper wire, which I have not done. But I don't use mine on turbo (or even level 6) very much so I lack much experience...

    Re: [DEAL] Astrolux S41 4x Nichia 219B/ CREE XP-G2 A6 1600LM Mini LED Flashlight Just pulled the trigger. Haha, this ends my 2 month hiatus from ordering a Nichia S41!!! :rolleyes: Yeah, it's close enough to my ideal light that I needed a spare and the price is right! Also I am hoping this...

    Manker E14 (4*Cree XP-G2/ Nichia 219B) is releasing

    Is Maukka's review (which is awesome!) truly applicable to this new batch of E14/S41 with the glued bezel? Mine (2nd batch) is significantly cooler than the measured unit; it's close to 5100K. Also I thought I read somewhere (Another forum? Gearbest reviews?) that the first batch did have the...

    Is there a new Nichia 219B out there?

    Thanks for the info, and I read Maukka's e2 thread also. Needless to say I ordered me up one! But what I don't know is, measurements say its R9 is 80 (at a certain drive current) yet it's only 9050 binned? I can't wait to see what the 9080s can do!!! I agree, the S41 Nichias are a greener...

    L11C

    Yes, and I'll add a vote for a AAA clicky Nichia (W/L11C UI but shorter reset) as well! Has anyone been able to tell what dies in these lights? Potting is an interesting idea. I've emitter swapped a couple L10s (which didn't kill them) and I've taken apart my two that died, but no obvious...

    L11C

    Yes I agree from experience that Zebralights seem to be pretty rugged. But... I killed two L10s back in the day and my brother killed his, all by short (2~3 foot), seemingly inconsequential drops. One being onto a wood floor from 2 feet. I have never had any other light die irrecoverably from...

    L11C

    Thank you, it's probably a browser issue on my end then. :shrug:

    L11C

    I notice that all 6 versions of the Nichia L11C have been out of stock for awhile. :thinking:
