Jetbeam PA40 Officially Released

I don't know if you're familiar with Jetbeam brand. Until recently they were deep into tactical market (hi-tech duty LED lights for LEOs and military, weapon lights for hunting, SAR lights etc.) but they're entering general EDC market after being acquired by Sysmax (the same company that owns Nitecore).

[Image: zy8soy.jpg]

Their newly released model from the Performance Series, the PA40 (check it out here) is a XM-L T6, 4*AA, 450+ lumen carbon fibre composite-bodied light, in appearance very similar to Fenix LD40, advertised as an outdoor EDC.

I am awaiting more beamshots and a serious review/comparison (and hopefully PA40 Neutral White!) before I order it from a local distributor. Price tag is currently around US$70 - fair enough if this light really delivers what is promised.

I currently own their PA01 (1*AA, 140lm pocketable EDC), and AA (R6) is my preferable battery format, widely available and inexpensive.

Cheers,

Tam

Thank you very much for posting this news! Smile Seems very interesting, specially for AA batteries.

When I read 468 lumens didn't seem too much to me but we are talking about ANSI ones so it can be very bright, I have no idea. How will it be compared with the Fenix TK41?

By the way, congratulations to you, you have already reached 25 posts and you can have access to other new forums now! Wink

The jetbeam pa40 looks to be a clone of the fenix ld40. Its hard for me to justify paying 70+ on this light. I think there is no contest between the tk41 and the pa40...tk41 will blow this light out of the water.

I would love to be able to afford the Fenix TK41 one day, but I bet that when I get the money there will be another newer model Big Grin hehehe.

One of the advantages that I see in this JETBeam PA40 is that is not as big as the Fenix TK41 because it uses less batteries. But that probably means less runtime too, sadly Sad

I can't make comments on light that I've never held in my hand, or seen a beamshot of. Currently only factory photos and specs are available, and review with beamshots is pending on CPF. When you look at the spec sheets, PA40 has almost twice the lumen power and these are ANSI/FL1 (not Fenix's factory standard which was once used for LD40 measurements).

Fenix TK41 ia an 8xAA light and JetBeam PA40 is 4xAA, not even the same class of flashlight and thus not comparable in output/runtime.

Cheers,

Tam
