    I FINALLY got my K40M today, but i noticed that the hotspot has a lot of artifacts in the beam,is this normal for this light? It looks like the center of the hotspot is grean and theres white swirls around it, i made a video of it and will uploead to Youtube in a bit, i realy hope its supposed to be like that, my Olight M22 Warrier has the same thing to.

    Hey joshjp! It's hard to tell for sure from your video, but I don't see anything that I'd be concerned about from 3 ft away. Being more of a thrower, Acebeam kept the reflector smooth on the K40M, vs a textured reflector. A smooth reflector is going to have some artifacts similar to that, especially a large reflector at a short distance. At longer distances I'm guessing those won't be noticeable. A textured reflector like you see in floodier lights would smooth out the beam a lot to eliminate artifacts like that, but it also would decrease the throwing distance. I don't have any shots at 3ft, but if you take a close look at some of the beamshots in the review (click on them if you can't see them right now, I think I went over my bandwidth cap for my image host) you'll see a few small artifacts in my beam as well.

    My Acebeam K40 m with SMO Reflektor will arrive Thursday this week. Another member of the TLF i think will test his Lamp in a comparision.
    That it is for the moment, but the Fenix LD 60 and the Lumintop PS03 are waiting in the background.

    Thanks for that info & link! I grabbed one at the $79 price, it was some "Instant Kill" sale, and now it says "sold out".

    I'm really considering one of these, only if I can get a killer deal.

    When I view it on Banggood, it says $84.99. But the page is sort of frozen for about 45 seconds, almost like something is loading. After that, it jumps up to $129.30.
    GOOD TINT!

    Great review BigMac, any idea the battery voltage when the light starts low voltage flashing?

    This light seems to be very much the same as Thrunite TN35. There are some similarities so close so I wonder if it's the same manufacturer? Anyway I like TN35 so much I consider to get another. And if it will not be available anymore maybe K40M still is.

    I just ordered a K40M & the TN35 is available all over in the states. The M is driven harder with a different dedicated reflector. That said Thrunite quality on these lights is second to none as I've read.

    I have modded a TN31 to XHP50.2, but the driver seems to have some Output voltage safety feature and does not power up
    The drivers are identical in size and control ring just power different LEDs TN31 was XML2

    I need to change very likely only one voltage divider

    So I would need a high res picture of this driver so I can read all resistor values
