Thread: Acebeam W30vn - The LED Thrower R

  1. #91

    Default Re: Acebeam W30vn - The LED Thrower R

    I was told W30 wont be available from Acebeam until August. There is also a rumor that Acebeam might discontinue the W30. Not sure of validity but I will update all that ordered one as soon as I know.
    I am happy to realize how happy I am. Thus, a chain reaction of happiness.

    Hmm that sucks.


    Also, why do you think acebeam is discontinuing? It's a recent release.

    I can't say I'd be too surprised if they were discontinuing it. LEP flashlights are such a new tech that they're probably rapidly improving the designs and hosts for them. Again, Acebeam did seem very interested in making a zoomable LEP.

    OK so it seems I will have to get W30 at $27 more than anticipated. I will send out an email to all that ordered one to go into this in details. Darn it..

    That's disappointing, but hopefully they don't take too long to release something even better!

    I wonder how long before other companies throw their hats in the LEP ring

    Is this to get the lights quicker in order to fulfill orders?

    How many samples do you have? Are these from customers sending in their own lights? DId you happpen to check the 4th sample stock kcd?
    it would be nice to know each sample stock and then modded kcd.

    It's been around long enough (over half a decade), and so basic in operation, I doubt there's much design improvement left in there, barring some phosphor breakthrough that probably would apply to LED as well.

    More likely that these are poor sellers: other than the advantages for extreme throw via small emission size (a pretty small slice of the market) and perhaps efficiency, LEP provides no significant advantage to existing LED hand-held lights. Add its considerable cost disadvantage and I don't see it ever being a big sales cow for general hand-held lighting.

    I won't be surprised if none of the mainstream vendors have LEP options some years down the road. I expect it will be seen in very specialized, serious throw, expensive pieces, like the $5k microfire.

    The LEP in these flashlight is analogous to a 5mm 2 lumen LED diode from the '80s. Just as the micro processors in our phones have shrunk and now combine multiple functions all in the same chip, that's LEPs future. It's what SLDlaser is doing with their SMD tech. The laser, micrometer sized combined with the phosphor printed side-by-side on silicone or some layered one dimensional meta-material etc.
