Solitude breeds contemplation which creates clarity. 

Environment molds a person. Perseverance changes them.

I’ve only tried two CR123-sized cells…

  • Nitecore NL-166 (RCR123A) protected 650mAh
  • KeepPower 900mAh ICR18350 protected button top

The Nitecores go into my JB RRT01, one at a time. It can fit 18350 batteries, but it turns out the KeepPower cells are too long to fit. It doesn’t seem to have low-voltage protection, so I stick with protected cells.

Two KeepPower cells go into my P60 (SF L2m) with UV drop-in, since it works much better at ~8v than at ~4v. They just barely fit though, due to the massive protection boards on the ends. I figured I should use protected cells since the drop-in is basically direct drive with no low-voltage detection, but… wow, these cells are huge. It took a few tries to even get them both in at the same time without crushing anything.

In any case, both seem okay for my purposes. I prefer thinner, longer cells though.

Did some looking around and found that ToyKeeper’s use of the Nitecore is warranted! Read 8 reviews on it at Fasttech and they swear it is the BEST and their search is over. Plus Fasttechs’ price is under $7.

Here is my meager collection, though I did just get the EX10 from Boaz in the mail today—thanks Boaz!


Next on the list for CR lights for me are the group buy Spark SF3 NW and maybe the Ti S10 or D25C.

The EX10 looks interesting, primarily because nobody makes piston switches any more. It’s kind of a fascinating design.

He still has a few more for sale I think. HKE has both the DX11 and EX11 for sale I noticed the other day.

if you are interested in one – shoot boaz a pm – he will hook you up

they are easy to mod to something like a nice xpg2 neutral and they scream on a 16340 imr Smile

You woke it up, Jon. Why? WHY?? Tired

I’ve actually started to appreciate 18350 cells. Notably longer runtime than RCR123 cells. But, CR123A do rule the shelf life though. 10 years is a long time!

I like your list of ‘grail goals’ Thumbs Up It doesn’t line up exactly with my own preferences but I’ve never thought to write them down in a ranked order either Davie

jon_slider, you ain’t alone in the 16340 quest Beer

And there are some missing here, namely a Jaxmnve M3, another RRT01 (single led) and the other Convoys S2+ that are also 16340 lights! Big Smile

thanks pinkpanda3310
yes, my grail goals were fun to figure out
Im not sure I agree with them for all situations, depends on the application for the light
atm, the majority of my use is indoors and close range, so I am biased towards floody beams and lower lumen levels (mostly below 20 lm)

also my house light is Incandescent, which makes me notice and avoid green tint and cool white more than I do during the day, when neither green tint nor cool white is as glaring. In fact, during the day, I dont like my 3000k LEDs.. but when I wake in the dark, I do

My N219b 4500k is my EDC, but I definitely enjoy my Warmer LEDs at other times

Note that my dimmed down sw45 in the RRT-01 (in the photo next to the brighter low mode of the HDS) does not tint shift towards green, Im really happy about that..

So for me, the ability to go sublumen is a higher priority than warm LED

of course, its fun to have choices.. I edc both a sw45 and a warmer option..
E21a 3200k on the left, sw45 on the right

RRT01

I blame you for getting me to buy an RRT-01
it has transformed my relationship with clicky lights, and made it easy to sell my HDS
I much prefer the UI and lumen range of the RRT-01

thanks! My wallet hates you.. LOL

I hope you show more pics of your RRT-01 triple and maybe some side by side beamshots of some of your lights

Good decision Jon, you broke up with HDS, I think they’re totally overrated Wink

And I’m also a fan of 16340 flashlights and I’m happy if they also tolerate 18350s! And since CRX also reads here, I would like to introduce my 3 “Made by CRX” 16340 flashlights which I also use regularly.
Novatac 120T with 3x Nichia 219c and H17fx driver, Novatac SPL 120 with Nichia 219c and my Maratac CR123 Rev.3 with 3x Nichia 219c and L4P LD-A4 3A driver, fantastic flashlights thanks to CRX Thumbs Up Smile
