Bunch of new lights @ Manafont

Manafont just listed a bunch of new flashlights. Including yet another funny new brand name. I'll leave that to the reader to find... Wink

The two that interest me are:

Something is wrong in the product description. It says both "AA" and "3xAAA". I would suspect it's an AA light judging from the size. Not a bad price for an AA multi-mode zoomer.

Anybody recognize this design? It's a knockoff of the Tank007 TK-568. For $4 and change, I will probably try this one out at some point in time.

Reminds me of the Sunwayman C10A -an Awesome torch in its own right because of the well executed tail electronic clicky (this one is done properly, think of a D10/EX10 SP)

I started this thread on the new name brand, but everyone ignored it. I thought I was being clever:

Roxane(you don't have to put on a red)light!

I've been pretty disappointed by all the Small Sun flashlights I've seen, and they're pretty popular with the flea market sellers around here.

I agree, Small Sun is pretty much bottom of the barrel. They are by far the most inconsistent, quality-uncontrolled product in the budget market.

Do my eyes deceive me, or is it using a de-domed 5mm LED on a plastic pill? (see first of the "Extra Photos")
