At last...normal size EDC which won't fell off of my hands

Added to the database. Very excited to see a light without any terrible Cree options.

I too am curious about the color temperature and CRI of the Samsung and Osram options.

Is the $90 MSRP is a typo though? That is the MSRP of the TK16 Cu and the TK18 is 2x bigger. I'd expect it to be at least $150.

I love the TK16 and plan to buy another one. This TK18 looks great but for the increased size using 18650 instead of 16340, I'm disappointed it doesn't have quad emitters. Vinh was even able to get quads to fit the TK16.

But if the price is $90 for copper, I will still probably buy it just because I like copper lights so much.

According to your website the body is made out of a solid billet ultra conductive red copper.
I sure hope that the bezel ring of this full-featured general purpose flashlight for EDC, military and law- enforcement is made out of tougher material than that. Personally I was thinking of something like Titanium or SS. Wit a nice shiny finish, of course.

Looks promising.

Like the TK16 you get emitter options for max lumens, throw and higher CRI.

It's a shame the Samsung LED wasn't a warmer tint, but the Osram and Nichia appear to be decent choices.

I'd like to see some more pictures but it looks like a good light.

Does anyone have this light? Mine copper version produces lightly audible whistling in ML mode. What about your sample?

Should notice that both TK16 Cu I possess as well are absolutely silent (or above my listening ability).

Here are measurements I took of the different Acebeam TK series flashlights using the Texas Ace lumen tube calibrated with Maukka lights measured at 2 seconds. I love this series but not so much the emitter options. The Osram is actually my favorite tint in this series even though I'm not a CW fan because the negative DUV in the Osram makes it look pure white. I just wish they offer some below the BBL (negative DUV) NW tint in the future.

The picture in the OP shows a black (aluminium?) version, whereas only a copper version is shown on Acebeam's website.
Is an aluminium one planned?

Hi all,
Since I couldn't find a user manual on Acebeam's website, could anyone please tell me how the UI works?
Thanks in advance
