Describing Acebeam's new X70 as "bright" is like saying a hurricane or typhoon is "windy". Delivering an unprecedented 60,000 lumens in a 1,130 metre beam, the X70 represents a new benchmark in portable lighting. Darkness stands no chance against anyone armed with this flashlight, which is uniquely suited to search-and-rescue, military and marine operations, forestry and game-park management, and so much more.

To produce this tsunami of light reliably and conveniently wasn't easy, but Acebeam's engineers have truly earned their reputation for balancing innovation with practicality. The lumens are served up by a Cree XHP35 HI chip backed by 12 Cree XHP70.2 emitters, fuelled by a rechargeable battery pack with 8 Sony VTC6 18650 lithium ion batteries, and focused by a complex reflector into an epic beam, brilliantly lighting objects as far as you can see.

The heat from these LEDs is dissipated by a centrifugal fan built into the carrying handle and powered by a separate rechargeable 18650 cell, allowing the X70 to sustain outputs of up to 18,000 lumens for 50 minutes and blast out 25,000 lumens for 8 minutes or 30,000 lumens for nearly a minute – durations which are not practical without active cooling.

All this technology is wrapped up in a waterproof aerospace-grade aluminium body, finished with military-spec anodising. The battery pack can be rapid-charged from both 110/220v AC and 12v DC sources, while the handle and a shoulder strap mean the X70 is easy to carry and hold, and a single-button user interface makes one-handed access to all modes easy. A five-year limited warranty provides peace of mind to both professionals and enthusiasts.

Acebeam's X70 is dedicated to anyone who has important work to do in the great outdoors, regardless of the time of day, weather or location.
