    Default Acebeam W40 and W50

    I emailed Acebeam 3 different times with no response yet. Has anyone heard of any new updates on the upcoming W40 and W50?

    Hi stingray3, I have not heard anything either. I’m waiting on the Astrolux MF05 because I believe that will be the first true LED thrower to be a real thrower. My Acebeam K75 with its 1,500,000 candlepower can’t even hit the bottom of clouds, nor can it really light up the end of a wash that’s merely 0.6 mile away. The Osram does not have enough lumens. Heard nothing so far on the anticipated Acebeam W40 and W50. Real excited for the Astrolux MF05 for the aforementioned reasons.

    I think your right. Definitely buying both when and if they get released.

    I have just checked their website, nothing new about W since 2019. On the other forums and communities nothing too.

    All people who post about RFI to Acebeam about future products report the same exact thing: Acebeam never replies to RFI about future products. I even went as far as to post a whole entire new topic in their forum (something that I usually do not do in anyone's special subforum) and the net result so far is zero, zip, nada, nunca, zilch from Acebeam. Oh well, whatever, nevermind. (as Kurt Cobain would say)

    Yeah emailed Acebeam multiple times about any release dates and radio silence like everyone else.. really hoping these drop within the next few weeks

    I emailed Acebeam, and created new topics to ask about exciting future releases, and finally, email replied inviting me to see the Acebeam facebook page.

    There are several reasons why I mostly always avoid facebook. Two exceptions, for me, only once in a while, are Kaspersky Antivirus and flashlights.



    Well, anyway, Acebeam W50 is a non-public offering. Oh well, whatever, nevermind.

    Supposedly Acebeam had a video of the W50 on their Facebook page but I can`t find it now but from a google search, 1lumen had a link to it but it`s not there (the video) anymore.
    It looks like 2 soda cans stacked on top of each other with a handle like the X70.

    Over 6 months and no updates on their own forum section.

    People understand when a company says “We can’t release that information”.
    Instead, silence is often understood as “We don’t care”.

    I wonder which one is the case here.

    Even if I said to myself ‘you only live once’ and bought this light, I also say to myself ‘what if it quits working ?’.
    Rather large light to send to China for repairs

    It also states at the bottom of the sales add page...........

    W50 is an industrial grade product, only for search and rescue, fire fighting, border, prison, electricity, airports, terminals, factories and mines, as well as for various specialised industries. The laser’s class is Class 3B. Therefore, online retail is not supported. An enterprise-level security agreement is required for purchasing.

    The Acebeam W50 is listed at around 4 million candela. Initially, it was supposed to be 6 million candela.

    I have a couple Vinh-modified flashlights, both Mateminco MT90vn+'s, that are slightly more than 3 million candela.

    That is close enough to 4 million that I won't be tempted to spend $2,300 for a W50. If the W50 were still 6 million candela, the temptation would be much greater.

    This is by far the smallest light that reaches 4 million mcd though. I guess that would be the appeal of spending so much money on it.
