    My impressions

    Pros

    + Excellent machining and high build quality, nice details, grip surface etc
    + Perfect, scratch-free anodizing, very nice semi matte surface
    + K60 available in four colors: Olive green, Sand Tan, Grey and Black
    + High quality OP reflector for perfect smooth beam with AR coated glass lens
    + Perfectly centered LED (guaranteed in every K60)
    + Ultra high performance only from one LED which is brighter, than many other MT-G2, MK-R or 3/4*XM-L2 flashlights
    + Very nice white tint (incl. hotspot, corona, spill, in all modes)
    ++ NO PWM or other irritating flickering, all modes looks perfect
    ++ NO buzzing sounds
    + Easy one hand operation
    + Users can use longer protected cells or standard size 18650 unprotected/flat top batteries without any problem
    + Precise magnetic ring (close to perfect) much more precise than my Thrunite TN35 ring
    + Good looking SS bezel
    + Good quality holster (not full size holster)
    + Tail stand capable
    + Very good price/value ratio

    Cons

    - No real cons for me, but I would like to see a small battery indicator led (similar solution as on Acebeam X60/X60M)

    Other comments

    I'm really impressed! The XH-P70 LED performance, beam type, tint, the K60 build quality, battery configuration (4*18650) etc. Overall, close to perfect for me.


    I recommend (chargers, batteries):

    Chargers: XTAR VC4 (need a wall adaptor), VP4 or 2*VP1/VP2.

    Unprotected high drain batteries for maximum performance (for advanced users only): Sony Konion US18650VTC5 2600mAh, Samsung INR18650-25R, LG ICR18650 HE2.

    Protected or other IMR cells: Keeppower's black IMR cells, Acebeam own batteries or other VTC5, 25R, HE2 or similar high drain cell based batteries.

    For longer runtime: LG INR18650 MJ1 3500mAh, Samsung INR18650-35E 3500mAh, Keeppower 3400/3500mAh cells etc.

    Attention! Many fake Sony VTC5 batteries available on market, so I highly recommend, pls check dealers, before buy this battery. I recommend (especially for european members) AkkuTeile.de which is reliable source, if need original VTC5 cells or other batteries.

    And now pls check my photos, beamshots etc, more photos coming soon. If need higher res, pls click the photos

  6. Very nice photos, great beamshot comparison (as usual :)).

    The K60 is well regulated in all modes. Battery voltage even with empty batteries is still almost twice the LED forward voltage. So there is enough headroom for perfect regulation even on turbo and with empty batteries.
    The driver draws around 4A from the batteries in the highest mode.

    That is, the mentioned low-capacity high-drain batteries will only shorten runtime, but not increase brightness (performance).

    IMO a better choice are 3000mAh medium drain batteries like Samsung 30Q, LG HG2.
    Even the new 3.5Ah cells are rated for 10A continuous discharge (though they should be kept below 7A).

    I would like to verify this, but I'm still waiting for the replacement driver for my own K60. Then I can compare Samsung 30Q (3.0Ah 15A) with 35E (3.5Ah 10A) - and maybe protected NCR18650BF (Soshine) though I expect the latter to become rather hot on continuous high, and give earlier battery warning.

  7. I just finished some runtime tests:

    Battery Type:1st low batt warning after:output drops below 10% of initial output after:
    Sony Konion VTC5 unprotected, 2600mAh37 min40 min
    Keeppower protected, 3400mAh34 min50 min
    EagTac protected, new 3500mAh37 min51 min


    With the new protected 3500mAh batteries, there's absolutely no need or no advantage of using unprotected cells like the VTC5 or the LG HE2 in the K60.

    With protected batteries inserted, the K60 just shuts off after the runtime. The batteries are driven into their protection.

    (I also have a bunch of LG HG2, but I haven't tested them in the K60 yet.)

  8. Hallo Markus, sind die EagTac 3500mAh baugleich mit den Keeppower 3500mAh?
    Ernst-Dieter
     
  9. Nein, sind sie nicht.

    Die EagTacs sind schlanker und kürzer. Die Keeppower passen nicht in jede Lampe.
    Die Keeppower funktionieren z.B. nicht in einer Meteor M43. Die EagTac schon.

    Hast du zufällig auch noch welche von dem Olight 3600er da um die mit den EagTac und den Keeppower zu vergleichen?
    Mich würde der Größenunterschied der 3 Akkus interessieren, aber meine Olights werden frühestens in 3 Wochen bei mir ankommen, danach kann ich sie mal mit einem Messschieber messen, aber Fotos kann ich leider keine so guten machen, denn ich hab nur ein Smartphone.

  11. Nope, die Olights habe ich nicht.
