Beyond the "fun with flashlights" thing... there is a serious side to this. I am in need of flashlight for hurricanes and other issues. I have 4 small Olights, but nothing in the realm of a X7 etc. After reading and reading and reading... I have narrowed it down to the Acebeam X45 or the X7. I like the X7R, but not being able to swap out the batteries in addition to the leaky charge port takes it off the list for ultimate survival tool.

Question : Drop forged steel drops the X7 from 50 ft and freezes it etc. Does any one know if the Acebeam X45 is almost as durable?

I have been looking for links to the Acebeam X45 here but no luck. Would someone be so kind as to copy paste links so I can learn as much as possible about the X45?

Get high current cells such as Sony VTC6, VTC5A or Samsung 30Q for the X45. Neither of those you listed is very good. You can compare batteries with HKJ's comparator. Higher voltage at high currents means lower internal resistance -> better suited for the X45.

Here's a good deal on the VTC6:

But the X45 batteries are in in serie. Should that not required protected cells?
Like theses :

Just bought a X45 70.2 version, want some spares batteries and I am confused as hell.
Help!

Depends on the level of risk you’re willing to take. If you use batteries bought together and used together and never running them flat, running them in series is fine. Just take care of them and periodically check their health.

Thanks! Let's say I buy the protected Q30 I linked, how would they compare to the included Acebeams ones?
