Thread: Which LEP has the widest beam width - Acebeam, Weltool, Jetbeam or Nextorch?

    Default Which LEP has the widest beam width - Acebeam, Weltool, Jetbeam or Nextorch?

    Hi everyone - first post here!

    I am shopping for one of the new LEPs and I'd like to ask the forum a question: of the lights that are out now, which has the widest beam width? I left the Acebeam W30 out because I wanted a smaller light and in the research I was able to do it looks like it was comparatively narrow anyways. So I'm deciding between the Acebeam W10 gen II, Nextorch, Weltool and Jetbeam.

    Any thoughts?


    Thanks in advance!

    Hello and welcome! I donít have experience with all those. I have played with the w10 and w30 briefly at illumn and I seem to remember the w30 having a larger beam. A wide beam isnít really the selling point of an lep though, they are all about a tight beam. If you want a thrower that has a little bit larger of a hotspot maybe look into the notigon in w1 or w2 (not a lep). The w2 will have more spill than the w1. Otherwise acebeam is supposed to be coming out with the w40 and w50 soon, I personally am waiting to see what they are all about before I dive in with an lep.

    I am watching and looking at these as well.

    My interest is in a beam that is a good thrower, but a wide beam and very little spill.

    As an example, at 100 ft, perhaps 10 - 20 ft dia beam.

    I don't mind if the beam is roundish or square ish from an optics viewpoint.

    It is for my adult daughter so that she can shine it around the yard before letting the dog out.

    In a perfect world USB charged but that isn't a deal breakers.

    the LEP lights are too bright for this. one could hurt their eyes doing so unless "the yard" is many acres or at least 1 acre. I'm just gonna 'throw' my opinion out there, my recommendation would be a typical tir optic or even an adjustable size or fixed size hemispherical aspheric lens. this could give limited spill as to not let others know you are out there but adequate light and beam size to check your surrounding.

    Well obviously I missed a few lights, one of them the Microfire PL20R, has an twist focus - perfect! Problem is that light is big and heavy. If an updated or slimmed down version were available or another manufacturer offered adjustable focus in a smaller package that would be ideal.

    Thank you - I think that you are right.
