The X65 builds on the success of recent Acebeam models such as the K60, K70 and X60M which have achieved critical acclaim as some of the brightest and best-made LED flashlights on the global market.
With the X65, the brief for Acebeam’s engineers was to set a new benchmark for output and beam distance while maintaining the functionality and durability needed by professionals for extreme search-and-rescue, security and hunting applications.
In response they built the most powerful and robust production flashlight in the world.
The X65 is fitted with five CREE XHP35 HI emitters mounted on a red bronze “pill” for efficient heat dissipation, set into an innovative multi-reflector which is optimized for throw and protected from the elements by an AR-coated ultra-clear tempered glass lens and a stainless steel crenelated bezel.
Powered by a custom-made 6,800mAh 16.8V lithium-ion battery pack, the X65 delivers a digitally regulated beam of up to 12,000 out-the-front lumens with an intensity of 423,000 candela, equivalent to a throw of 1,301 meters using the ANSI formula, for between one hour and 18 days depending on the output selected.
The X65 is an extreme tool, designed for extreme conditions. The body is forged from 6063 aluminum alloy, hard-anodized to level 3 (military grade) with an anti-slip finish and sealed to IPX8 standard for immersion up to 2m and impact resistance up to 1.2m.
The user interface is designed to be simple and intuitive under stressful conditions. The X65 is controlled from a single switch which is easy to find in the dark and to operate with either hand. A single click of this switch accesses a previously memorized mode (Low, Mid or High) while a double click accesses Turbo (6,000lm) and another double click, Turbo-Max (12,000lm). For defensive purposes or to attract attention, a triple click from any mode or from OFF will trigger a dazzling dual-frequency strobe for up to seven hours.
The X65 is supplied with a universal power pack to charge the battery from any AC supply as well as a strong shoulder strap, a spare O-ring and a five-year limited warranty (12 months on the battery).

1. To charge the battery, connect the supplied universal power pack to a mains supply (110/220v AC). Unscrew the DC Lock cap on the tail-cap and connect the lead from the power pack. A red light on the tail-cap indicates charging in progress, while a green light indicates charging is complete. A full charge will take three hours. Disconnect the power pack when the green light appears and re-attach the DC Lock cap. Note that the battery pack can be charged independently of the head.
2. Turn the flashlight ON and OFF by clicking the switch.
3. Press-and-hold the switch to cycle through Low, Mid and High modes. Release the switch to memorize your preferred mode – the light will return to this mode next time the flashlight is turned ON.
4. To access the Turbo mode, double-click the switch while the flashlight is ON. To access Turbo-Max, double-click from Turbo. Additional double-clicks will cycle between Turbo and Turbo-Max, while a single click will turn the flashlight OFF.
5. To access the Ultra-Low mode, press-and-hold the switch from OFF for one second. From Ultra-Low a single click will return the flashlight to the mode memorized in step 3 above.
6. To access the Strobe, triple-click the switch from the ON or OFF position. A single click will return the flashlight to the mode memorized in step 3 above. Note that Turbo, Ultra-Low and Strobe settings are not memorized.
7. To Lock Out the X65 (to prevent accidental activation and depletion of the battery while the flashlight is not in use), press-and-hold the switch from the OFF position for two seconds. The beam will flash twice to indicate successful Lock Out. To Unlock, press and hold the switch for two seconds, until Ultra-Low mode is activated.
8. Note that, during use, the light on the switch indicates the energy remaining in the battery pack. Green = more than 40% reserve; red = less than 40%. The intensity of the beam will reduce when the reserve is under 10%.
The X65 is an ultra-high-intensity lighting device that is capable of causing injury to human or animal eyes. Please do not look at the lens while activating the flashlight, or direct the beam towards any person or animal at the higher settings. This flashlight must be kept out of reach of children.
Please do not disassemble the sealed head – doing so will damage the flashlight and void the warranty.
To maintain the IPX8 waterproof rating, please lubricate the rubber O-ring with a silicon grease or other lubricant which is rubber- and aluminum-safe. Note that oil-based lubricants can damage rubber.
Please clean the electrical contacts periodically, especially if the beam flickers or fails to light. Use a lint-free cloth or cotton-wool swab dampened with alcohol.
In the event that the light does not illuminate or works erratically, please check:
- does the battery pack need to be charged or replaced?
- do the electrical contacts (including the terminals of the batteries and the threads joining the battery tube to the head) need to be cleaned?
