    I don't think there will be anything better anytime soon. It would have to have a larger head diameter, with more non-overlapping XHP35 reflector wells. I could wait for someone to make such an item, or live without it. So, I procured another X65 for my other hand.

    There is nothing else like this in hand held led. Aim two of these at stuff that is about 500 meters away: You see killer performance that no one else can see, holding two of anything else.

    I am thinking about mechanically ganging three of these together.
    Yes Sir! Thanks Rich.

    Thank you acebeam for making good lights. I have 12 acebeam flashlights... i would like the next acebeam light to have an extended runtime kit.

    Dear Acebeam,

    You know how much I love the Acebeam X65. I fell in love with X65 before it was released. I bought two (2) X65.

    Please, please tell me if there is a X65GT coming soon?

    Can I send you money now to get an early test sample?


    Love,

    richbuff

    3-1/2 years on and the X65 is still my all-time favorite all-around light.

    Tried the X65 Mini but just wasn’t feeling the love.

    I think that you and I are at the top of the X65 fan club. I skipped the Mini.

    On the AceBeam website, I see 2020 New Product > a small pictorial representation of a red box with red bow on top and yellow tape around the box, labeled "X65GT".
    I hope it is on the original head, not the Mini head, and I hope that the gift box icon turns into the actual light.

    Great spot on that. Hopefully March 6th we find out!

    I’m also not a fan of the Mini head, it was a major step backward from the X65 head. In fact, the entire Mini looks cheap and so opposite the high class look of the recent big Acebeam searchlights.

    The first night I set the Mini out for my wife to take up to the barn, she said “Where’d you get that cheesy light?”.



    Then grabs her full sized X65 and headed out there door.

    I agree with you that the original maxi head is preferred over the mini head for several reasons, especially when there will be a GT version with more heat generated.

    It looks like there is a picture posted out there somewhere on the world wide web, showing not five SBT90.2 emitters, but fourteen (14) SBT90.2 emitters, with 50,000 lumens and 2,000 meters throw mentioned; this as posted on German and Russian and other websites.

    It has been one year since an Arlington police officer defended himself against a loose, charging dog. In this case, someone other than the dogs' owner did Not reap the initial tragic consequences. Usually it is an innocent victim that gets it.

    That thing's gonna run out of battery in like 5 minutes, have a 5 second turbo timer, and cost 1,000 dollars.

    I just hope it has a nice low mode, something around 10 to 30 lumens is nice. Hopefully this won't be desigened like some of the other lights like the X70/X80GT where the lowest mode is way, way too bright.

    I enjoy having a low option on my high output lights as well. When they start at two or three hundred lumens, it does limit narrow their use.

    I looked hard, couldn't find anything. At least it's something to look at.
