review of Shadow JM35

veröffentlicht am 8. June 2015 in Allgemein, Coupons und Codes, Reviews von

Hi my friends!

it has been a while since i received:

BOXES!

filled with Shadow JM35 flashlights !

the Sticker says one is a Cree XHP50 LED – so the other has to be a Cree MT-G2 LED

(because that are all sold options)

inside the boxes could be twins

both had the same bubblefoilbag with the same things in it:

A spare lens and a red Oring, a lanyard and a user manual (i think…)

i pulled the lights out of their foam packaging and YAY!

just kidding! – the batterytube with the rear switch was taken from a JM30 😉

the JM35 DOES NOT have a rear klickie – it is operated only with the side e-switch.

lockout by turning the batterytube ½ turn is possible.

UI:
a short click brings LOW-MID-HIGH-LOW-MID…

long click to OFF from any level

always starts on LOW

i found no dico and ni visible PWM

BUT the XHP50 squeaks on low and mid – the MT-G2 is quiet…

some more pics…

on the left side MT-G2 – right side XHP50

using UV light shows the “warmer” tint of the MT-G2s phosphor

a look into the driver

unfortunately i did not manage to get it open…

at the end of the battery tube sits a thin spring

some reported they had to bridge them with wire to make the light work with protected cells – more later on that.

instead of the rear swiitch the JM35 has a plug (made from plastic)

battery tube is well done

as is the lubed threads

opened up the hot end

MT-G2

quite thick aluminium MCPCB

XHP50

the side switch is well made also

also well done is the machining

the anodisation looks a bit shiny and slippery…but thats just my point of view…

the JM35 is a small light when it comes to lenght..

i like the feel of the JM30 better…

or a K40

or…

but small can also be beautiful 😉

lets use them what the was made for…

for all my tests i used keeppower cells

the XHP50 10 cm in front of a wooden plank

i had to use darker settings to get the dark cross from the 4 dies on camera

but 30 cm away the cross is gone!

if you look carefully you see that the MT-G2 (on the right side) also has a doughnuthole

30cm away….

shining upwards

upwards, in front of my home cinema canvas

the setup i used for the beamshots

look me in the eye!

Amperes measured at the tailcap // my BudgetLightBox gives a bit high numbers…

some things…

both lights DID work with my protected keeppower 26650!

but with none of my protected 18650s!

unprotected 18650s worked IF thes are high Amps capable !

using a bad cell resulted in a massive voltage drop which caused the drawn Amps to rise !!

a Samsung ICR1865022E (pulled cell) dropped from 4,12V to 3.0V and was squeezed 6,7A

a Sony 18650VT pull dropped from 4,1V to 3,7V and delivered 5,1A

and so did a Samsung ICR1865022P…

when the batterytube is tightened and the Driver goes to “standby” a initial flash appears (too fast for my Ampmeter) which triggers weak protection circuits…

a unprotected cell and a eachine cell (resets the protection fast!)

other cells just shut off and had to be reactivated … (tried 4 different protected cells)

Conclusion:

nice lights!

a bit too small for me tough – i have to grab the head also to hold it comfty

the need of “special cells” is mentioned at banggood – so have them prepared

word is that a bridged rear spring can make more cells to work

for that small ammount of money you get a lot of light – but you can see that its a cheap one

(but still better made than the JM30 was)

unfortunately i could not get a view of the driver (the lights will be given away so i can´t destroy them)

i will add outdoor beamshots asap

Tower is 60m (197ft) high and 130m (426ft) away
