Acebeam E75 Short Review:

General thoughts after a week of usage/size comparison/practicality/interesting things:
• I love the overall look and feel of this light – smooth anodising and perfect machining. Great colour choices too.
• The beam quality and profile is my favourite thing about this light. It’s very difficult to get a focused hotspot with these quad LED lights. Most companies just chuck a TIR lens in it which creates a floody beam. Acebeam uses a quad-smooth reflector.
• Comparisons: Convoy S21F, Sofirn IF25A.

Overall Construction, LED, lens, bezel and reflector:
• Top quality machining and anodising. I like the different colours you can choose from. They’re tasteful and still low-key. The side switch is made of metal and requires a firm press to activate. Acebeam has also used anodised, square-cut threads which are smooth and easy to thread. This was not the case with my P16. No clip issue as well – it sits below the tail cap and is screwed into the body. Strong magnet in tail cap.
• My version has 4x519a LEDs producing 3000 lumens, but you can get a low CRI 4500 lumen version.
• The bezel is a nice addition – not sharp and is handy if you need to break a window. Glass lens with a quad smooth aluminium reflector under the lens.
• Takes any 21700 cell, flattops and button tops. Onboard charging.

UI – modes:
• Click and hold for ML from off. Double-click anytime for turbo. Triple click for strobe.

Performance – total output, beam profile, longevity, practicality:
• CCT, CRI, Ceiling bounce test
• Nice high CRI beam profile. Plenty of spills and a perfectly circular hotspot. There is an ‘overlapping’ pattern around the edges of the beam but not really noticeable, especially outside.

• Can’t turn off the auxiliary lights near the side switch.
• Additional tail switch would have been perfect for tactical functionality/momentary mode.

This is an amazing general-purpose flashlight that you can EDC – it is a bit larger but the 5000mAh cell will give you extended runtimes. It’s a pleasure to use and the light has impressive brightness and throw, given the high CRI LEDs.
