Lots of posting in the German forum about this light in the past few days. What kind of ui? What kind of cells will work? And such interest from more than a few flashoholics who eagerly await the arrival of this standout configuration.

From August info, it is using Anduril firmware but it could be Texas Avenger or TomE version too like previous HKL models. I thought Banggood will publish the final UI explanation on their site. Let me double check with them soon.
Fyi, Haikelite does not have the approval for ToyKeeper's firmware usage.

Thank you, freeme, for posting that HK90 is in stock now, and that shipping should happen by this weekend. I am really excited about this light. I think that this is the first multiple sbt90 light, so kudos to Haikelite for jumping out ahead of the pack.
Also, there is lots of current discussion about this light on the German forum, as opposed to almost none at this site. Maybe because the first and second replies to this thread appear to be a bit reserved? :)

Detailed comparative beamshots were posted on the German forum today: taschenlampen-forum.de/threads/haikelite-hk90.77451/page-7

I got a tracking number for this light. It's coming, later or sooner.

It's sort of mixed. I just read through the posts. One guy, Kasperrr, measured 15000 lumens and 630 kcd throw. The 15000 lumens is more expected because 18000 is unrealistic as we've seen. For the throw it's a little disappointing. There were also some quality issues noted - mark in a reflector, dust, not perfectly centered LED's.

Really, spring bypasses should produce a bump, as well as using 30T cells - worked well for me with the K1. Then de-lens of the LED's will give you another 5% or so.

News: The_Flashaholic has received his HK90 to review, so we can anticipate his detailed comprehensive review soon. :)

The arrival of the two HK90 that I ordered and the arrival of The_Flashaholics' review are taking up their fair share of my headspace, because it looks like this light bests the X65 in a package that is not too big and heavy. I ordered my first one Sept 7 from this GB, and the tracking number yields zero information. Where is it located at?

I ordered the second one Oct 26 from another source, so it is still too soon to be anxious about its arrival. I would love to have at least one of these in my hands, even better; two! :)

I finally got my hot little hands on the much anticipated HK90, one hour ago. It is the one that I ordered from Vinh54 on October 26. Driver VNX2, spec card says 14,000 lumens and 750Kcd and 1732 meters throw. 5,700K, de-lens. It came with 3 x Vapcell INR 21700 4,000 mAh, 30A, solder blob top cells.

The HK90 that I ordered from here on Sept. 7 is lost in space without a trace.

Good news: The HK90 that I ordered from this group buy ten weeks ago suddenly has surfaced: its tracking number suddenly went from no information, to materialized on Earth, at a location near me. Not only that, but on its way to me, arriving soon, too!
