Manker T01 "II"

For anyone curious about what the difference is between the old Manker T01 vs the newer Manker T01 "II" and product warranty, I received the following response from Manker:

 

Thanks for your msg.

1) T01 II is with a stainless steel bezel on the head. but T01 is not.
2) T01 II is with a lanyard hole on the tailcap. but T01 is not. so you can carry it easy &safety to anywhere as EDC gear. 
3) T01 II are compatible with AA battery and unprotected flat-top or button-top 14500 battery. but T01 I is power by only AA or unprotected button-top 14500 battery. so you can use more types 14500 battery power to more high lumen output
Attachment is the photo for your reference.
If you order the items from any authorized dealers, Mankerlight will keep the 5 year warranty. 
If you have any after-sales in one month after you received the parcel, you can contact us.
After the first month, you need to contact Mankerlight ( info "at " mankerlight " d t" com) directly.

Kind Regards
Alan Gan

Edited for new information…

Crenelated bezel is V1 non crenelated bezel is V2

V2 you cannot easily access the led/driver because the steel ring is press fit screwed on, on V1 you can because it is screwed on.

I like V1 better… wish they made a 2AA version of it.

Do you have the V2 to confirm that? Still looks like a threaded bezel to me. It looks like the press fit ring is added to the bezel.

I have V1, I recall reading that for the V2, maybe someone with a V2 can confirm

Has that same seam at the bezel as the V1. Looks like all they did was not machine the crenelations in the bezel, pressed in a stainless ring. Might actually work better for waterproofing. Looks like the only difference is a longer tail cap to machine the lanyard ring.

I think we need to be careful to not make statements based on speculation and presenting them as facts as alot of people will base their purchase decision on the things that are stated in this forum.

Based on my research, and confirmation from Manker via email, the front stainless bezel unscrews and is not glued. This should allow equally good access to the LED as possible in V1.

Sweet! Though I can’t see myself needing to mod them. The driver is potted. (To me that’s a good thing.) The LED should be fine for a long time. Is it me seeing this or is there only half a star?

Is nice to know that it is not press fit, will edit post to reflect that…

Yes it’s a proprietary half circle design, but you can probably fit other mcpcb’s with a little filing here and there…

Yes, I was really happy to see this. I was trying to find a place to buy the original one and it was very difficult to find. After some research, looks like the T01 V2 has the potential to be an equally good light with better battery compatibility.

I actually went ahead and ordered one to be modded with a Nichia 219C 4000K. I will lose some throw as a result, but will be much happier having the warmer CCT and high CRI.

I hear the NW HI is already really good, but still nice to be able to open the light once LED tech advances so you can still upgrade the light.

Please share with us on how you mod the light when you get it. I am curious to know how you would make a full star fit for future reference.

I don’t think modding the light will be any different than the previous model:
http://budgetlightforum.com/node/42713

I don’t plan on changing the star, just remove the existing LED and reflowing the 219C.
I’ll keep you posted nonetheless.

TheDude, thanks for sharing this. Interesting to see how 1 person had success modding with 219C , and the other didn’t on lower modes.
Fingers crossed it works for me. Will keep the thread updated once done.

How did you unscrew the ring on that T01 II ? Was it difficult to remove? What type of tool do I need to take one apart.

I received both of my Manker T01 II’s today. Unfortunately there are problems with both of them.
The problems seem to be related to the 1.5v side of the light. I have used an Eneloop Pro cell.

Using 14500 Manker cells, everything works fine.

The first light will not offer any mode accept High mode, clicking it to cycle modes does nothing when using an Eneloop Pro cell.
You can double click and go into the flashing modes with no issues.

I can not program the light with a Eneloop Pro as holding the button down to activate program mode will do nothing accept shut the light off after 5-6 seconds.

The Second light works fine through modes EXCEPT when I go to program it.
When I go to program it in low mode, It cycles through Med low, then low low, then it jumps into high high. That’s not even suppose to be in that mode group!
All the other program mode groups work normally.

So far I’ve been having bad luck with AA powered flashlights. First the Lumintop EDC05 and now Manker. I’m beginning to lose faith in these two brands due to quality control issues.

I have given up on these Manker lights. These where the first lights I have bought from them and they will be the last. I buy two of them and they BOTH have problems.

I think now I understand why Zebralights are more expensive. For the money I spent on these T01-II, and the time I took to make videos to show the problems, I could have just spent a little more and bought the Zebralights.

@ Sovereignnight
-What vendor did you buy them from?
-Had to make a small notch in the metal retaining ring in order to get sufficient grip to unscrew it. MOD not yet complete…

EDCGEAR, Amazon store.

I gave up on them and sending them back. I’m just gunna go with the Zebralight SC5W II. I was just using them for the AA function and Max brightness. The T01 II didn’t work correctly on AA Eneloop Pros. The Manker’s worked ok on 14500 but I didn’t want them for that. 14500 was just a bonus.

I’ve had so much bad luck with Lumintop EDC05, now the Manker, I’m done with the hedaches and Im just going to break down and buy the expensive stuff. Hopefully the Zebras will be problem free.

@sovereignknight

Live update, my light was exhibiting erratic behavior and seemed faulty. Noticed transparent glue used on the tailcap that was covering the contact plate. Scrapped it off and issue went away. Might be worth looking at yours to see if that is causing the issue.

I cleaned all the contacts on the pair with 92% Isopropyl. Springs, cap, positive terminal. None of it helped. I desperately wanted to keep the lights as they really are nice looking lights, but the quality control just isn’t there. I feel my money is best spent on the Zebra. I was fighting that too as Zebras are friggin pricey but I’ll give em a shot. Hopefully I’ll have better luck this time.

Too bad on your T01’s…

I own Zebralights as well, highly recommended! The T01 was more of a project light so that I can own a compact high CRI thrower, which appear to be scarce in the flashlight world.

I think Manker had a great offering. That’s why I went with it too. It was the closest thing to the Zebra but cheaper and had throw. I heard good things about Manker so I didn’t even expect issues. Sadly that was not the case. If Manker could perfect that light, it would really be a great solid piece.

It seems that high powered lumen AA lights need allot of refinement.

Zebras are friggin pricey but I’ll give em a shot. Hopefully I’ll have better luck this time.

I look forward to your success.
fwiw, a friend bought a Zebra SC5c recently and returned it because it did not work on Ultimate Lithium. The replacement had the same problem, so he returned it also.

You will be fine w eneloop, as long as you are OK with the yellow/green tint. Most posters tend to like the SCxx W tint better than the SCxx C versions, even though the CRI is lower on the W…

thanks for sharing your impressions
