If you need any more details feel free to ask. I am in touch with the manufacturer on a regular basis so if any of you are interested in this light, let me know since I should be able to get you a good deal.

Looks good and thanks for the write up.

What is the lens material - lexan, pyrex...

Is that 4 hours of regulated or diminishing output?

Wondering why the Surefire E20 with the KL1 3 watt Luxeon LED gives only 30 lumens and that too for 2hrs.30min. or 3 hours whilst you are getting more light for more time with this one.

Were the beamshots taken at 1 metre?

Have you been able to test distance illumination?

Hi Rustam,

As per the manufacturer specs the the lens is Toughened ultra clear glass lens with AR coating

I have added a runtime graph to the review.

I'm not sure about the output compared to the KL1 head since I don't have one.

The beam is very useful and is more of a flood than a spot. The beamshots were taken at 10 feet.

I haven't been able to test the torch in the outdoors where there is less ambient light compared to the city maybe you could borrow it for a couple of days and test it.
