review: NEXTORCH TA10

veröffentlicht am 1. November 2015 in Allgemein, Reviews von

Hello my friends!

As most of my reviews this one also starts with a box

Dangerous Goods???

i never got so much paperwork from china…

very impressive how acurate that shipment was made!

 

burried under a good amount of bubble foil (pop-pop-pop) i found:

 

i like the small details that sets a manufacturer apart from others – like this metal hanger

 

on the side there is a quick info about the brightness levels

 

and the back with a short summary of the specs

 

lets open it!

 

the light, a bag with the lanyard and two spare Orings

 

and a small packet

 

i did tell you i love that kind of small details?

 

the User manual, a advertising folder and a card with a QR-code to register the light

 

the manual is written in german, english, chinese, portouguese, french and spanish !

 

now have a look at the light!

smooth design (organic came into my mind)

 

a beauty!

very handy, a working anti roll feature, perfect anodization and letters

 

it has an agressive, massive SS Bezel (which can be seen hunting white walls…)

 

the Lens is not AR-coated and made of plastic, but very clear

 

in the bottom of the 21 mm wide and 20 mm deep reflector sits the Cree XP-L V5 LED

 

its well centered, but the centering ring turned a bit when NEXTORCH mounted the reflector i think

 

the other End…

the tailcap is quite long (31 mm) because the driver is built in there!

 

here you can see again how smooth all edges are

there are big recesses, but the tailstand is save (on non moving objects)

 

removing the tailcap

unfortunately i was not able to open it (because i wait with brute force after the review is done)

 

nicely cut threads and a  Oring, lubed well

 

thick battery tube

 

to prevent the clip from rotating a recess was made

 

do you remember the massive paperwork? here is the reason:

 

and thats the cells i had at home to test the flashlight

 

using a CR123A

sitting on the positive contact

all way in

 

a 14500 sitting on the positive spring

 

aaand it fits!

 

that magic is done by a two diameter battery tube and a spring loaded positive contact plate

 

size comparison

Olight S1 (RCR123A) – Thrunite Archer 1A (AA) – nitecore TM10A (AA) – NEXTORCH TA10 – BLF A6 SE (18650)

 

feels good in the hand

also the cigar grip is comftable

 

 

on mid and low there is PWM, but i do not seee it with bare eyes and i can´t hear any noise

 

 

the beam shape

left side NEXTORCH TA10 – right side BLF A6 SE in 3D tint / distance to the canvas was 1m (ISO400 – 1/5 sec – F4)

 

(ISO400 – 1/5 sec – F4)

 

(ISO400 – 1/25 sec – F4)

 

unfortunately the weather crossed my plans for outdoor beamshots – but i will make them soon!

the UI:


the TA10 has a “DUO switch with click and tap” (from the box)

you can tap the switch a bit to get momentary light on High

quick double tap gives you instant strobe as long as you hold the button

a “click” switches the light ON – always on High!

a tap then toggles H-M-L-H-M-L

tap and HOLD ( LED is OFF) for 3 seconds starts SOS – another tap goes back to normal

another click switches the light OFF

 

 

 

numb3rs

i measured in my LumensBounceBox – values correctet to “Fenixlumens”

since the driver is located in the tailcap i could not take Amps as usual

but i added a DD measurement equal to normal tailcap measures.

HighMediumLowDirectDriveDD-Amperes
CR123A 3.15V240 Lm92 Lm14 Lm240 Lm1.28 A
RCR123A 4.16V346 Lm146 Lm23 Lm360 Lm1.20 A
Energizer 1,6V133 Lm50 Lm6 Lm136 Lm1.40 A
eneloop 1.42V138 Lm50 Lm5 Lm144 Lm1.45 A
delipow 4.09V480 Lm178 Lm27 Lm488 Lm1,64 A
IMR1500 4.16V520 Lm199 Lm31 Lm540 Lm1,85 A

 

my conclusion:

pros:

a really nice light!

very good built

eats a lot of different cells

throwy beam

 

cons:

output is on the low side

the bezel makes “edges” in the beam

no low voltage protection
