Thread: Sunwayman V10R video review

    Talking Sunwayman V10R video review

    I picked up a Sunwayman V10R and did a little video review of it. Its a pretty cool light overall. The dial is a little hard to feel if you don't look for it. Adding some texture to it would be a plus.

    Very nice review indeed

    I just got my V10R in the mail today. Seems we pretty much have the same exact pros and cons about it. I do love it though.

    A pic of the V10R next to the light it replaced as my EDC:

    Nice Review! But for the relatively same price, wouldn't a 460-lumen V10A be a better option?

    Did you mis-type that? I think the V10A is only 160 lumens.

    Thanks. The Jetbeam has gone back to the motherland. I'd say this one is definitely better. button is better, construction is better, UI is a personal preference, but I think this one is better. Now I'm trying to talk myself into (or out of) and HDS light, but am having trouble swallowing the $200 price tag.

    The V10A, V20A, V10R all are the exact same. The difference is the writing on the bezel and the size of the battery tube. Lego to your hearts content. The performance will vary depending on the voltage and current capabilities of the cells used. SWM has recently changed the way they claim performance. They now base their claim on 1.5V batteries and ANSI specs.

    The V10A is available in XP-G R5 for 140 lumens, or in the newly released XM-L T6 version for 110 lumens on an Eneloop NiMH, or 460 lumens on a 14500 lithium rechargeable battery.
    As usual, Asia gets the XM-L T6 version first - the West will receive it very shortly, if its not already available...

    nope, its 460 on a 14500. BOOM! I was going for a PA10 for 650, but the one-mode 14500 turned me right off and into this light!

    You can order them off the HK sites and on Ebay.

    no problem, bro! V10A or V10R, both great lights! It really boils down to your preference of cell to use.

    Nice review. I've got the T6 emitter in my V10R. I liked the V10R so much I got the Ti R5.

    Best price I find is LightJunction with discount code.

    It's at the top of my short list.

    Great review Snareman, Got the V10R with XML -T6 for Christmas and am delighted with it. Going to try it shortly with the RCR123 as it will put out 460 lumens in theory with it.

    Got the new V10R with lanyard and holster which are useful additions. I would however change the lanyard and have. You cannot tail stand the light with the Sunwayman lanyard, so I am using the Led Lenser T7 lanyard and the T7 is using the V10R lanyard. Works perfectly.


    Agree with you on the little sun and big sun marking on the variable control, but to me I am very very happy that I did not go with the nitecore EX11. From what other threads are indicating it should really be named the nightmare EX11.

    I realize this thread is a month old, but your video review is great! I've been researching the V10 and this video really helped me.

    Great presentation and hit all the great points.

    thanks!

    Great review. I have the first Ti version. It does get hotter than Aluminum V10R.
    I haven't see any formal review of XML V10R. I would like to see a XPG V10R vs. XML V10R review.
    or a side by side XML V10R vs XML RRT-0 review.

    I do wish V10R has flash mode though. RRT-0 has it and V10R does not. Feel a bit lacking. Otherwise it can be a nice bike light.
