Is there a chance you have any additional information, specs, or sneak peak pics you could share with us?

I can promise you that ANYTHING you have would be greatly appreciated by all of us here.


Yes I to am an official Acebeam dealer out of my van and home website I was told that it might be released tomorrow.. !

Man I’m an old fart now. I remember the days when we wanted to see surefire make a 600 lumen 6p. That’s an insane amount of lumens that honestly most will never ever need.

Obsolete "hardly!" if when it does come to market... my guess max 40K lumen 2 min if were lucky... the x9r can loop in and out of 3 min intervals at its max...

Patience grasshopper...

You still have a little time to enjoy the X9R before it becomes obsolete. :nana:

Acebeam just updated the X70 specs.

The distance has increased from 900 meters to 1,130 meters.

And the output has increased from 40,000 lumens to 60,000 lumens.

Wow this light is going to be a real zinger!

Hmmmm i noticed the handle with built in fan yesterday. I wonder if they can’t make it reliable with a built in fan in the light. Olight abandoned that first and now that Acebeam is abandoning that, It makes me wonder about quality issues in the imalent MS12 since I had a DN70 and it was a terrible experience

Imalent introduces the MS12 at 53K lumen and suddenly the Acebeam X70 jumps from 40K to 60K lumens? I'm becoming very leery of these numbers. Anyway, with just 3 minutes before step-down, it's a lot of money for a hand warmer.

Olight showed the x9r prototype the removable fan system, it was on a tray you insert, i was positive this would make into the final production but they ditched it.

Here i found a image, i doubt it was really usefull for this lumens but they had an idea i guess...

Problem i think with built in fans like Acebeam showed earlier with 3 fans is how are u supposed to clean them from dust etc over time? because a fan is not really useful in the long run if its clogged with dust and crap etc... and what if the fans fail or something? its not like u can just swap them out like Olight atleast showed and said in case it wouldnt work u can just easy pop it out like a battery.. so it shows that a big flashlight and have built in fan system of some kind nobody can really do, i doubt the Imalent fan really makes that much difference, that fun in the end will just fail and stop working , so how much lumens can u get then without the cooling ? You are depending that the fan will never fail or atleast u can hope so... i dont know how many computer fans failed me over the years...

Its funny we can send people to the moon with rockets but we cant manage to build a big flashlight with active fan cooling without external things attached lol...

Yea I liked the removable fan idea Olight had going on. A fan that is fixed inside will gunk up and be less efficient eventually. Now that Acebeam is having the fan on a handle It probably won’t be waterproof with it on. It if that’s what it takes I will buy the Acebeam. I love my x45, it amazes me every time and has been working flawlessly even after being dropped on the pavement. I wonder if they could put 20700 batteries to get better runtime, 60,000 lumens will take a lot of juice!

60K lumens.. I don't believe it. 12x XHP70.2 and 1x XHP35 HI won't give 60K.

Re: 40,000 Freaking Lumens! ACEBEAM X70 Just got a price tag.

Acebeam stated they're driving these very hard. If that means +25% of factory spec [XHP70.2 @ 3800 and XHP35 @ 1833], that gets us to 60k.

3,800x1.25x12=57,000
1,833 x1.25x1=2,290

59,290

Then you still end up, a couple of lumens short ;)
I really wonder how many Acebeam expects to sell. It isn't cheap..

Trust me there is a market and reason the flashlight companies produces such crazy lights, ofc the average joe wont have any need for this. I thought i was crazy when i was following the olight x9r and then later bought one because i thought how cool and super nice it is, people begged olight for years to release that monster if not i doubt they would have made that light who knows. But no i dont have any use for 60k lumens when i think less then half of that is more then enough.

But there is a market for them they wont sell as many as their smaller lights ofc but the target isnt mass audience really and the price for this much lumens isnt that crazy high really.. Its also a show to the world "we can do it" sort of brag or something..

Even if they just sell a couple of thousand units, it's probably still worth producing them. They likely have higher margins than more basic lights.

Hopefully Acebeam will publish run times sans the fandle [fan + handle].
