Not XPG R5!!!

  • PPsender Wednesday, May 12, 2010 11:48 PM Reply
    It is clearly that the emitter is an XR-E R2 and the body also says premium R2.

    Seems like they just copied the TK12 R5 spec from somewhere else...

    @ PPsender
    I think you are right. Why would they waist a R5, just to run it at low 280 lumens.
    If it's a R5 it could easy be 330 lm or so.

    TK12 is driven at ~1000mA on max, equivalent to ~350 LED lumens. 280 lumens is likely the OTF value, just like how Q5 is rated at only 225 lumens.

    That's probably right, but it's completely against the DX rules.

    Still wrong, they corrected R5 but this is not a Q5 neither.

    IFAIK fenix didnt even released a Q5 TK12.

    On the box it says R2 and I think 240 lumens, so ya, not Q5 either.

    That really sucks. Bought it last night with just reading the description and not looking at the picture of the box. Well it was late and I was tired so that's my excuse. After all this time I should know better.
