I am addicted to CR123 size lights now.

After getting the solarforce Z1 and using it for quite a while - I have become addicted to Cr123 sized lights

http://blogs.c.yimg.jp/res/blog-89-bc/hidekisrx/folder/459980/31/17746831/img_0

 

Today I went on a little shopping spree.

http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0288/5862/products/HIDCANADA-M11RNATPREM_1024x1024.jpeg?v=1384844592?1397998693013

http://www.sunwayman.com/uploadfile/CKEditor/V11R-E2.jpg

 

I picked a V10R U2 and V11R L2-T6 neutral from hkequipment. Also grabbed a M11R T6-4C (my favorite tint) from HIDcanada. It looks like they make quite a few titanium versions of the v10 and v11, but they seem difficult to find and quite expensive. I was looking at a nice m11r sirius ti light... but for the price of the one Ti light I managed to pick up three "everyday" versions.

 

After looking around - it appears that there are literally 1427 different versions of these lights. Anniversary edition, Ti, Ti2, HCRI, and other various limited runs. They are also modded by many it seems. Ive have seen mule versions as well as triple xpg2s crammed into each one.

There's also some hardcore flashlight porn floating around the Ti versions

Great scott! Thats beautiful!

 

Anyway - In 2 years of flashlighting I dont know how I missed out on these babies... my wife thinks its funny now that I am scrambling around the house looking through my collection of a few additional lights to sell to cover my costs Silly

Anyone else have any of these in their collection? Or any other really cool small cr123 sized lights I should know about?

Would you mind keeping the wrong flashlight?

I had an s10, really liked it but ended up getting rid of it because the tint was just too cool for me

 

I also have a ultrafire wf-c6s with a kd v2 3 amp driver

I have the mini 01 on my keys it is by far my most used light and it makes me happy everyday to have a lot of light by hand all the time.
I always wanted a more fancier light in this size but I cannot justify to buy a small light for so much money.
If there is a magnetic ring light out there with 400lm and for below 25$ which is as small as the mini01 I would be glad to buy it for my keys.

I have 2x v10r Ti. 1 is xpg with SYOCD raised switch, I don’t use it much. The other has a jhanko modded head, vinhnguyen54 modded light engine, SOYCD raised switch and self modded battery tube. It rests on my bedside draw and is possibly my most used light as I don’t always sleep well.

I wish Sunwayman would make a V11R Titanium Edition.

Until then, my favorite looking CR123/16340 is the Niteye Eye10 TIC!

Here's nice:

And the naughty: Titanium, Carbon Fiber, and Tritium... Does it get any better?

man all these lights looks so cool. something about how their so small and detailed and the designs that were put in it makes the lights look better than most of the larger lights.
i almost got addicted after buying my first cr123 sized light which was the mini 01.
its still actually one of my favorite lights because i have it on my keychain and its bright as heck for the size.
i ended up only buying two more of these sized lights which are both zoomies.
oh actualy i have another on the way…the sc03.
i do like the look of all these mentioned, but im only interested in the ones that are 500+ lumens.

The blue trit (3rd light in the lineup of 6) in the OP is absolutely awesome.

Same with the one pinkpanda posted.. Is that some sort of blue gitd on the battery tube area?

I just wish Trit lasted longer so I could justify forkin’ out the cash for it.

All those pimped out lights look awesome. I’d be scared to leave the house with most of those. Anything in my pocket is subject to getting bashed, beaten or just plain lost. I will be getting the Ti S10 though, which should have a warmer tint than a stock S10. I just got my S15 in Ti and almost wish I would’ve got the S10 instead. Now I have an excuse for both.

Here’s a partial list of mine — nothing fancy:

Sunwayman V11R
Nitecore SRT3
iTP SC1 Eluma
Thrunite Neutron 1C
SolarStorm SC03

I often use a Solarforce L2M in shorty mode with an A001 head and L2_CL1 convex lens.

Not exactly the smallest CR123 option but I like it.

I bought two when they were available from Solarforce.
You might try Flashaholics A U.K. seller, they seem to have a stock, it’s how I bought mine, with the “offensive” bezel attached. A bit on the expensive side but they do seem to be very hard to come by. It went through to checkout when I tried it so there’s a good chance that they have some in stock.

Yes. IIRC the trits are ice blue and the gitd is pure blue from ‘glow inc’.

Thanks for the ups.

I couldn’t resist that spark.

I spent $200 on 4 lights today…. But that’s better than $200 on one titanium light!

I like 1xCR123 sized lights. I always run mine on li-ion 16340 rechargeables. Here are some of my more notable ones:

  • D25C and D25C Ti – great lights. They come with great tint and acceptable, though unexciting, UI. Very small for what they do. Bright on IMR 16340.
  • Spark SF3 neutral white – fantastic tint and UI and the light looks great. All around great pocket EDC. Better UI than the Eageltac, but not quite as bright. This is my favorite unmodded CR123 size EDC light.
  • XTar WK42 – super-small size and nice sideswitch. UI isn’t perfect and tint is very cool white. Makes a great host for a 3.04 amp DrJones Lumodrv driver and neutral white XML2. This is my favorite mod host in the 1xCR123 size, and fully modded it’s my favorite CR123 size EDC light.
  • Olight S10 – ultra-tiny CR123 size light. UI lacks shortcut to max power, but this is fixed on the L2 version. Tint is slightly greenish due to poor choice of tint and coating on emitter. Easily fixed by replacing emitter and lens.
  • Jetbeam RRT-01 – nice interface and feels nice in the hand. Larger than some of the other lights though. This is really a 1×18350 light due to the wider battery compartment.
  • Thrunite IC – one of my older CR123 size lights. Larger and longer than some of the newer models and with a dated emitter. Long reflector gives larger halo, but poor spill.
  • Lenslight mini – Huge and heavy. Built like a tank. As large as an SC600, but with a fraction of the brightness. Not recommended.

The three I have:

Olight i1 EOS, Olight S10 Baton, and a Suwayman C10R. I run all three on Nitecore RCR123's.

To be honest, the build quality is great, but I'm not impressed with the tint nor the brightness. The Olight S10 Baton blows it away in both areas. The C10 is a bit too green for my taste...

I just sold my S10 too because of the tint but I saw on eBay they have a version with neutral white emitter. They asked for $15-$16 more than CW version that I bought for $34.
