Jetbeam RRT01 - IMO possibly the best EDC light ever made!  Stupendous and you won't find it any cheaper than at Fasttech.

Indeed it does.  It was designed to.  Takes a 16340 as well but an 18350 drops right in.

Wallbuys has it for cheaper using the coupon code “WSSDDGAA”.

FT = 54.12 with BLF code
WB = 51.27 with WSSDDGAA code

I'm looking for something along those lines as well, but man... I could scratch build one out of money and it'd come out cheaper than $50-60.

What about empty hosts for the little cells?

That 501A link in Post#3 is a P60 Host. I think they are available from lots of sellers. It’s like a mini 501B

Welcome the night.

Just had a bright idea that'll probably end in disaster (as usual) - Convoy S4, with the battery tube sectioned, and bored to press-fit back together over a piece of 3/4" copper pipe... it works to make an extension, why not for a... uh, shortener? xD

I have an RRT-01 incoming but that shadow looks pretty cool!
The option for the tube (+$8) is kinda cool as well…

Great thread, a quick google search for ’18350 flashlight’ and I’m here, man I love BLF.

My favorite light using 18350 would be a shorter version of the Xiaozhi.
Anyone with a lathe willing to do a run for fellow BLF members ? Wink
I’m sure I’m not the only one interested in such a neat little yet powerful light, it’s easy modable too.

The Shadow is nice too, maybe as a christmas gift to myself, instead of a Solarforce Z1.

Thread is back from the dead! I've just noticed this one recently added to the DX New Arrivals, now floating in my wish list:

http://dx.com/p/trustfire-l2m-cree-xm-l-t6-650lm-3-mode-memory-white-flashlight-silver-1-x-cr123a-16340-268664

"Trustfire L2M" with throwaway T6 drop-in for only $8.60. It says 16340; I don't know if an 18350 will fit or not. Probably going to end up in an order for me soon anyway...

I'm thinking 101-AK with XP-G2 emitter should make a good compact light.


Keepin’ the “B” in BLF

Thanks keltex78. I was looking at L2M clones on DX a few months ago and they had three or four “shiny” ones like that with various modes and emitter combinations. But all of them were $11 or more, and I don’t think any of them were 3-modes. So I had to jump on this one at $8.60.

L2M with L2T bezel.

I think the Niteye Eye10 is better than the Jetbeam RRT01. Looks nicer..

+1 ^^ The Niteye 10 is one spectacular little gem. And the best price is from FastTech even though they are slowly losing the handle on prices. Got mine at $46 and now lookin to be @$50. Get em while ya can. Wink It and the JB RT001 are virtual clones. http://www.fasttech.com/products/0/10004049/1291801-niteye-eye10-cree-xm...

Doesn’t the JetBeam RRT01 have 3x as more lumens?

Absolutely not. They are both in the @600 lumen range when run on 18350.

That is very weird. The only thing that stopped me from getting the Eye10 is because the rated brightness was pretty low:

That’s because they rated the eye10 on cr123. If you go to the link you’ll see that.

Ah, that makes much more sense, thanks for the clarification.

Weird how the manufacturer wouldn’t put the actual max number of lumens.

Quote:
Using the specified CR123, output was measured at 262lm, pretty much spot on the specified 260lm maximum output.

Then, it got interesting….

Using an AW protected RCR123 with ICR chemistry, the EYE10 output 563lm. An impressive boost.

Then I loaded an AW RCR123 with IMR chemistry. IMRs have the lowest internal resistance of li-ions and have the ability to deliver very high current. On the IMR, the EYE10 output 662lm! Yes, you read right, 662lm. At this output level the EYE10 gets warm within 30s and hot after a minute or so. The heatsinking is good, but the entire light then gets hot after a couple of minutes.

This fits a 18350. I received one yesterday. I had to put o rings on it and grease it up a bit, but I am not too disappointed. The mode spacing is too close together but memory works well.

Thank you for adding the Marsfire 616!

I found a photo of the driver side on Wallbuys, unfortunately there is just a spring and contact plate visible, I wonder if there is a standard 17mm driver inside that can be swapped out easily?
Would be nice to have better mode spacing.

Is the clicky reverse or forward?
How is the tint?

Forward and the XPG2  is pure white, not at all blue or purple. I like the tint and I order NW in all of my lights if it is an option.
