Lumintop LM10 Flashlight Review, this is Lumintop 10th anniversary celebrating light, they chose a special futuristic design and a Titanium alloy for it, available in various finishes and led options.

The UI is the awesome Anduril customizable and multi function UI designed by Toy Keeper, you can set low, high, ramping, or stepped modes.
There are also lockout modes with moon-low, candle and lightning storms accessory modes.
You can even set the temperature limits or know how much juice (volts) is left in your battery.

Memory mode (auto-manual)
Battcheck – Temp Check

It runs on 18650 Li-Ion rechargeables, very easy to find and cheap to operate, I use Sanyo 18650GA’s they are 3.350mah and 10A, the quality is solid and they work well in any climate.
I got the lights some months ago, as soon as it was released, so I have got no box pictures, surely there are plenty around! as I am more user oriented and I’m not as tech-savvy as others, here are some detail and user-oriented pictures.
The LM10 come with a floody frosted optic from Carclo (either a 10511 or 10509, have to find out yet), which for the 720lm (approx) of the high output disperses the light a bit too much, so, I opted for a clear CARCLO 10507 standard TIR with a large spot, the light is therefore more concentrated in a large spot and is more useful for my likings.
This is for mine where I chose with Nichia 219C 4000K cri95 at the time of the order, if I was able to go back I’d opt for the SS20 NW.
The provided optic, though, is perfect for the FW4A and HL3A (Reviews are in the works) which mount SST20 4000K emitters.
3x Nichia 4000K CRI95 emitters, nice cream white output
The LM10 comes with a removable bezel and AR coated glass, well done.
Here you can see the Stock Carclo TIR 10511/10509 Flood-Wide Beam Optic VS the Carclo 10507 clear I got from Intl-Outdoor

Last Words and Conclusions:
The LM10 Titanium was bought from Lumintop Lighting directly
Price is around 129$

What I like:
- GREAT Price and quality
- runs on 18650 rechargeables
- rich Anduril UI
What I DON’T like:
- gets hot pretty quick on Turbo, on High mode it’s OK
- Brass version runs cooler
- clip is cheap, very thin steel
- TI clip ix extra and expensive
- no diffuser included
- hope a quad led comes out one day
the light was bought with my own money, i was not paid for the review
