    Laser is within internal flashlight.. after the beam came out from the lense, it is not laser anymore..

    This Technology is awsome. I NEVER DREAMED WE WOULD HAVE THIS MUCH THROW SO SOON IN SUCH A SMALL PACKAGE!! Wait till a 1000 to 2000 lumen version comes out W50vn!!

    Vinh,

    Do you think this is about the max you can do at this point? If so, I'm going to order a spec 3

    I honestly got no clue what I am doing. I have no specs on this particular laser module so I really don't know how much to drive it. I don't think we should push it any harder though as its very impressive as is. I let the light ran for 10 minutes straight and it only got warm and light is still crazy bright so I figure we are good. Kind of just tweaking in the dark really.

    Too bad the owner of the 2.6Mcd version wont be posting as he never does but I know he read these posts. Anyhow I will borrow his light to see if I can make a video just for fun tonight. I am sure he doesnt mind.

    Oh and his sample actually turn on at 2.75Mcd!

    Just to clarify, are all w30vn lights at sample 3 specs now?

    In sumaary I only give the light a power boost. Every light will be brighter than stock. But how nicely focus the beam depends on the factory.

    Forgive my ignorance vinh, but I really want you to take my money. How much is a lottery ticket? On skylumen, seems to be full price of a w30 ($275)

    Honestly I think they will all be 2Mcd or more....The 1.5Mcd one is likely a badly tuned one. They all make relative close to 500-550 Lumen though.

    I remember a small one man company that sold laser pointers many years ago. He would boost the power, and depending on the quality of the yttrium aluminum garnet crystal, among other factors, would end up with an output anywhere from 10-75mW. He would bin them in ranges, and sell the most powerful ones for a premium. I know that I, personally, wouldn't hesitate to spend a decent sum extra for a W30vn that was guaranteed to be above a certain spec. It would take some time to get a large enough sample to see what they average, and how rare some of the higher candela numbers really are. After a while, you could probably have something like;

    Spec 1: 1.5-2.25M candela $$
    Spec 2: 2.25-2.5M candela $$$
    Spec 3: 2.5M+ candela $$$$


    At this point, I don't see near-3M candela being out of the question on a perfectly aligned sample.

    Vinh, what CCT do you estimate the Hi CRI version to be? Also, can you get the 4000k version?

  16. #46

    Default Re: Acebeam W30vn - The LED Thrower R

    Hi CRI seems to be below 4000k. 4000k looks absolutely piss yellow.

    If that is the HCRI then Uh ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

    No that's just regular 4000k. HiCri looks great from what I've seen on the W10.

    Cool vid but not sure from your comments if that is the Hi CRI or 4000k? Acebeam makes three varieties: 6500k, Hi CRI, and 4000k. I was guessing the Hi CRI would be around 5000k but I have no idea.

    I love warm lights, so mellow yellow is fine by me...

    EDIT: you already answered my question, above, thanks.

    If I had to guess high cri is 3000-3500k. It doesn't look yellow like the 4000k version, and looks rosy like a halogen.

    I wonder how different tints are achieved with this LEP tech

    I'm assuming it's the same as with LEDs: they just adjust the phosphor. Both the LED and Laser are narrow-band blue light sources, they only become 'white' when they interact with yellow broad-band phosphor.

    Default Re: Acebeam W30vn - The LED Thrower R

    Does phosphor deteriorate over time and exposing users to radiation?

    Does this affect the output in the same way it does with LED's?

    Yes, and no. Light output/characteristics will change over lifespan. No "exposing users to radiation" - that's part of the purpose of the beam-dump mirror - it redirects stray to inner-side of light.

    Vinh maybe my comment got deleted from the original W30 thread? Do you have a finger on the W30 HCRI variants? Andrew-Amanda is showing them on their site, just curious if you had a wholesale headsup. I'm tempted to get one from them, but I'd rather just be a bit more patient and wait for one from you.... I'd love a Weltool with a HCRI emitter......

Wait for me as prices will be cheaper to buy direct from me then to buy from them and then send in to mod

    .. I'd love a Weltool with a HCRI emitter...... You need to send me your W3 to be modded.

    Vinh, you should become an authorized retailer for Acebeam. These insane improvements you are achieving with LEP may potentially allow you to sell hundreds.
