K50vn

Manufacture specs/details/photos : http://www.supbeam.com/en/supbeam-high-power-magnetic-control-led-flashlight-k50#.UtTiOrTWvQo








Noticed the K50vn spill is larger than the TN31vn Spill





Heavily Underexposed: Due to reflector angle the tint is better on the K50vn as compared to TN31vn



K50vn VS TN31vn
Yes the TN31vn is not obsolete. But it is also officially dethrone from the King of Reflector Thrower :)

I have a feeling the K40vn might be de-throne at least in term of performance...Price wise..K40vn will still hold its ground...We will see :)

i'd been following your threads and was about ready to pull the trigger on the k40vn and now the k50 pops up lol. What lux are we expecting? 600-800k?

The k40vn n k50vn won't overlap in many ways. I am sure u won't regret buying a k40vn.

I prefer the smaller size of the K40. The beam is narrow enough already. And I can hold the K40 with one hand and operate the ring. K50 is going to be a bit heavier too, with 4 batteries and built in charging.

On an LED light, you need reflector bowl depth, not just diameter...so while a wider head will typically help, it won't help as much as it could if not also deeper, etc.

That makes the lights get pretty long sometimes.

I always thought the k40 with external charging would be the ultimate light. This will be that with more throw in just a slightly bigger package! gonna crack my piggy bank open tonight!

Do we know if the reflector in the k50 is also deeper?

Re: WTS: K50vn - Uh oh ;-)

This definitely looks promising. I like the idea of not having to take out a battery carrier and , of course, the potential for more throw! It will be cool to see how your mods will affect this new beast once you get your hands on them.

Re: WTS: K50vn - Uh oh ;-)

I didn't order some. I ordered 18 and prepaid to make sure I get them ASAP. I already know they will kick ***. :)

Of that 18 5 is already sold. I am confident in this light because I know I can push it 5.5-6.5A. With a much larger reflector I can't see how throw won't kickass. :)

I don't have high hope for the TK61 as I am 90% sure I can't push it real hard. May be 4.5-4.8A max. Plus I like the built in charger and the 6 mode control ring set up.

- 600-800K Lux. Saying this based on knowing TN31vn does around 480K-530K otherwise it's a wild guess.
- The 5 I sold was to local customers who always buy my things sight unseen. It would be weird to sell a light here when I haven't even seen the light yet. LOL

Re: WTS: K50vn - Uh oh ;-)

Many keep on asking me if I think this is a replacement for the K40vn.

No I do not think so. Here is the two most important reason

1) K40vn is least $50 cheaper
2) K40vn is smaller, lighter, and has more than enough practical throw for most if not all of the applications I know of.

I will continue to stock and sell the K40vn unless there is a cheaper light of similar or better quality and performance. The K40vn is a real special light especially for the price of $150 Shipped USA.
