    Default Fireflies E12R, NOV-MU, T9R, T1R prototype test results

    I preordered in December last year and received them for over a month already but have been too busy to test and post results until now. I've been using them here and there especially the NOV-MU and they are absolutely amazing. Most of my gripes in the older FF lights have been fixed in the new series. The build quality also seems a notch above the older series especially the T1R prototype looks identical to Olight quality, which so far is second to none and I own over 400 flashlights.

    Lumen output measured at 2seconds from turn-on using the Texas Ace Lumen Tube calibrated with Maukka lights. Spectrometer used is the Sekonic Spectromaster C-800-U

    I was very lucky that FF offered to include a T1R prototype in my order for testing. I really like the looks of the T1R. It is noticeably smaller than the Acebeam E10 and you really feel the difference in your hands or in your pocket. They sent me a red and the color looks amazing even though I'm not even a fan of red! The aux light works so much nicer with this optic compared with the other Fireflies lights or any other flashlight with Aux lights for the matter. The only issue is that the beam is squarish almost like a beam from an overly focused aspheric lens. FF said they may be able to fix that in the final version but then again that beam shape might give it the highest intensity so not sure if it is worth fixing. One thing interesting is that the hotspot is noticeably larger than that of the MC13 and E10. Basically it is like comparing the hotspot of a Osram W2 vs Osram W1 yet still providing comparable intensity is real impressive. I guess this optic collects the spill and concentrates it into the hotspot.

    Please note that the TA lumen tube favors throw lights over flood. I estimate actual output of the NOV-MU mule is 15-20% higher than what I measured. Flashaholic measured an output much higher than what I measured but he also measured the output of the T9R much higher than hat I measured

    I have been using the NOV-MU constantly for work related indoor photo taking and inspection. It is the best indoor photography light I've ever used and the battery can last through the entire job whereas my previous light the KR4 E21A mule with the 18650 often ran out of juice before my job is done. However, I accidentally turned on the light several times in my pocket and smoke came out. The protruding button makes it very easy for accidental activation so please remember to lockout the light by untwisting before putting it in your pocket. I have not experienced any accidental activation with the E12R because the head protrudes farther than the switch button.

    The E12R is probably the largest I would carry as an EDC. It is actually much smaller than I originally thought and much smaller and lighter than the Noctigon K9.3. It is awesome to carry around so much power in such a small package. I do wish that there exist a 10deg optic for this light. I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to have a 12x W2 10deg optic high output thrower! I do not recommend the LH351D 4000K because of the positive DUV and not being too much brighter than the 219B version. I can drop the DUV by installing minus green filter but then the output will probably reduce to 219B level. Might as well get the 219B or SST-20 FA3. I would love to try the LH351D 5700K 80CRI high bin though. Maybe in the future I will get that to test.

    The T9R is also much smaller than I originally expected, especially when compared side by side with the Noctigon K1. The beam is nicely focused and very tight and is probably the farthest throwing light with this head diameter. Unfortunately it cannot out throw the bigger K1 with the CSLNM1 but I guess we cannot defy the physics governing reflectors. The spill is also very narrow due to the deep reflector so good if you want to minimize light pollution up front. I also have the SBT90.2 on order and I'm anxious to test that one.

    I also took some throw measurements. I'm not sure how accurate they are but at least they should be consistent for comparison among the lights tested in this list.

    For comparison, you can see my measurements performed on Emisar/Noctigon's latest series of lights. I will post the Noctigon K9.3 results at a later date because I forgot to test that one.

    Good lord this is extensive! Thank you very much for this. There's useful info in here for just about anyone.
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    You're welcome.

    Forgot to mention I measured the discharge capacity of the Fireflies new HIZY 22430 2000mah battery at 2,112mah. That is incredible considering the larger Acebeam 26350 that came with the E10 measures 2,111mah.

    Wowwwwwww
    Thankssss
    I am happy to realize how happy I am. Thus, a chain reaction of happiness.
