Boy it is ugly! Big Smile
But it looks pretty cool and I’m sure there’s many people who will love it. The Manker styling is just not my COT. And I think Manker makes good flashlights so I’m not worried about the quality. And 800 lumen out of 2 AA’s is very good!

My usual concern regarding parasitic drain is even more bothersome this time. I don’t think you can easily break contact by twisting the tailcap one turn or so; you really need to take the batteries out if I’m not mistaken. No point in low self discharge Eneloops if the light eats a lot of juice in standby.
I do love the design very much though; definitely interested.

I’ve had the T01 for quite a while now and been very happy with it. Great output on just one Eneloop, which is what I load it with most of the time. (Also impresses the muggles using the regular junk lights usually associated with AAs and sold in hardware shops and supermarkets. Lol)

I actually don’t mind the look of the T02 shown in the fb clip above. A bit industrial maybe but it seems that maybe ergonomics might have won out over “smooth and sleek appearance”. Which is fine – do we really need another Apple Inc in this industry?

The topic of a side-by-side AA format comes up now and again both here and “the other place” and usually attracts some interest. A single AA light is OK but having 2 x AA instead means the driver doesn’t have to work quite as hard to boost the output and runtime will be much better. It’s just that nothing much has historically been made in this form factor.

I’d be interested in a couple depending on it getting a favourable review. (Of course, a M4D M4X code would sweeten the deal even further – thanks Martin! Innocent )

no charging (2S and possible Alkaleaks inserted could be dangerous)

Design could be improved if he made the tailcap screw flush and put a side USB port to charge the batteries without removing them.

And an option for a momentary tailcap for use with pressure pads and redesign the clip section to be able to attach a picatinny adaptor for use with rifles…

Since the cells are in series, I am not sure charging them in the light is a good idea.

Maybe it has a dual purpose. Is there a ‘vibrate’ function?

Definitely interested if it can produce 800 lumens with 2xAA. I just hope they don’t group turbo with blinky modes. Blinky modes should be hidden. That’s the reason why I don’t buy Manker lights anymore.

Also hope it’s not glued and easy to swap emitters. I would love to put a 219B 9080 or LH351D in there.

All I can say at this point is I like the looks of it. Will wait for a decent review to choose to buy or not. But as of right now, I want one.

Yeah, it’s not a great-looking light, but I’ll welcome any innovation in the AA category. At 800 lumens, it’s competitive with most 1×18650 lights, especially if they make it current-controlled (which would be an improvement over most budget 18650 lights). Hopefully, it can sustain the full 800 lumens, even if it drains the batteries fast.

I personally love the design. Not trying to conform to the masses.

I had purchased a T01 this year and had to return it as it was defective and flickered when used with a 14500.

Hope the quality control is better as I would love to own one.

+1 on not using glue so you can easily mod it.

+1 on good driver efficiency!
