My w10vn g2 arrived today and just after a couple mins of playing, I had to report here. For those of you that can afford this light, do not let this opportunity drift away!! It’s an absolute insane killer! I like this even more than the w30vn. Only cus of the size difference. I got 677 kcd at turn on. Man, this sorta throw from a 1.25 or so diameter is mind blowing. Get this while you still can. I’m tempted to buy another just because of the discontinuation.
Without a doubt, it makes the aspheric no spill throwers like the XSvn/NMvn obsolete, definitely!
Is it possible to fit a LEP setup into something the size of the 47s Goliath V2? Only then would I say it would make smaller throwers obsolete. But I’d hate to have only a zero spill LEP light on me in the actual dark if I need to walk around. No real ability to see dangers directly in front of you...
But let’s be honest, who only carries one light? Haha.
I just got my W10vn G2 today. Vinh's card says 510lumens and 645kcd. I measured it using the included Acebeam battery and got 495 lumens. I charged up the battery and cleaned all contact points with alcohol like what I always do with new lights. It measures 556 lumens at 2 sec. That is very impressive considering my W30vn HI CRI measures 300 lumens.
The throw is no comparison for the W30 for sure but it is hard to tell whether it throws farther than the Delta. It was kind of foggy tonight and it seems like the W10 performs a little worst than the Delta in fog as there seems to be more refraction. I found some clear spots with less fog and it seems the W10 throws a bit further. However, I see better detail with the Delta than the W10 because the Delta has a great tint whereas the W10 has a very greenish tint.
With a spectrometer I measured the following:
Center of beam:
Ra (CRI): 69.5
At the corona:
DUV: 0.0220 (very green like the NI40 SST-40 dedomed)
Ra (CRI): 65.0
For those that have both the W10 and W30 CW, are the tints similar? From beamshots, it looks like the W30 has a more standard CW tint and not this green.
W10vn gen 1 vs W10vn gen 2 low exposure
Looks like the W10vn G2 is on top since I recognize the yellow green corona from my W10. The light throws so well for the size I just wish it had a white tint with less tint shift. Has anyone compared the W10 with the W30 CW? Is it the same tint?
