It's killing me that I can't come up with the money without taking out a loan, which is a big no-no. All I can do now is hope a distant relative passes and leaves me $3,000.
Just received notification from FEDEX that my new Lemax LX70 Superpower has been SHIIPPED and suppose to arrive to me on Friday morning before noon.. WOW shipping weight is 35LBS..
The light by itself with the battery on it, is about 8.25 lbs compared to under 5 lbs. for the standard 70, that's a 65% weight increase. All that increased weight is in the head size.
Ok thank you! I remember inquiring about these lights but it was a long time ago, somewhere I recall a discussion about a comparison between the Lemax LX70, and the XeRay XV-LX70, whether or not they were the same. For the life of me I can't recall what the verdict was, are they the same light or are they different??
The Machined parts, reflector and battery are identical, with the addition of our "Powered by XeVision" logo on the head. Our version uses a more expensive true high wattage Philips DL50/740 bulb and our proprietary high wattage igniter, not a 35 watts rated bulb/igniter. This means longer bulb life and better lumens maintenance. Our version also uses our proprietary 2nd generation, time tested (4 years in serial production), military and aviation grade, CNC machined very tight tolerances cylinder ballast. This 2nd generation ballast provides optimal efficiency, thermal performance and interface tolerances for optimized ballast heat dissipation, ballast reliability and long life.
Ok thanks for the reply. It sounds like we're comparing the best player in the world to a top 10 player in the world, both being incredible military grade products, yet the XeRay just goes above & beyond with absolutely no expense spared whatsoever. Ok then the pricing seems to make sense then, I suppose $3,000 for the Lemax LX70 Superpower sounds about right then.
We don't sell the SuperPower for weight, size and balance (CG) reasons, (ergonomics) so can't comment to that pricing, the market for it is very small.
I suppose if someone wants the SuperPower they have accepted the weight and size factor, but I'm thinking that the awkward balancing would be the most annoying part.
Yes and not to mention the huge advantage of scuba diving with the regular LX70!! I used to scuba dive years ago, if I ever do break down and buy one it would probably be the regular for the reasons mentioned, and I would probably take up diving again JUST to use it underwater!!
Thanks KJ2 as I have no idea why they wont upload like that for me..? Well I finally got the battery charged as they are shipped at about 20% Petr of LeMax told me last night on the phone. Took about 6 hours to bring it up to a full fuel tank. The light is massive and sports a WOW FACTOR of a 10.0..I was blown away by how huge that front element at about 8 1/4 inches across the reflector itself and just a tad under 9 inches across the entire head. It is built extremely well and appears that it can take a beating and keep on throwning..There also was a lovely short sleeved shirt that has Lemax LX70 Superpower on the front and back..This light makes my 2 Surefire ARC Lights to look like midgets.. The case is extra heavy duty and nicely cut out inside to fit the Superpower very nicely with cutouts for 2 batteries and a section for the charger.. Very well thought out.. I do have pictures of the 3 mega lights together and will get those uploaded sometime today hopefully.. If your on the fence about one of these bad boys, take the plunge as you will not be dissapointed at all. This is surely a big boys toy..
What is the candela rating on this? With that kind of lumen ouput combined with a large reflector, I would say at a minimum 1.5M candela.
Sorry about seeming like I'm thread stealing by constantly bringing up the regular LX70, but I never saw someone give the candela ratings before for these lights thank you, can you please give the candela rating for the regular LX70 too? Maybe 2m??4250^2/4 = 4.5m candela. 7000 lumans
I have a great idea for you. Why don't you start your own thread on your favorite light you keep bringing up in a thread that is about the Superpower. That way you can get all the info you need on your particular light. I myself started this thread on a Light I OWN and not something i am trying to compare with some other light from another company. Thanks in advance from a OWNER of a SUPERPOWER..!Sorry about seeming like I'm thread stealing by constantly bringing up the regular LX70, but I never saw someone give the candela ratings before for these lights thank you, can you please give the candela rating for the regular LX70 too?
