Sorry, I don’t follow your logic Daniel from Romania. Usually would have posted to other light forum, but this seemed budget, so I thought I’d post here. Move along if you’ve nothing to add, although I enjoy humor I’m missing it. Not altogether welcoming, and yeah, I’m a very real and conscious light fanatic.

Cheers Daniel!

Your first post looks like one from a shill, that is all. If you are not a manker shill, my apologies, welcome and carry on.

Thank you sir. No Manker shill here I assure you, just looking for some real world feedback. I’ve never owned a Manker and haven’t been impressed with their design aesthetics to date, though this one catches my eye much more. Seems there is not an English review out there on the web I can find. Any feedback appreciated :).

Keep it real!

Looking forward to it. Very compact light for sideswitch and packs the latest/hottest LED, XPL HI (no idea of bin).

Not up on banggood yet, but all over ebay at $69.95 or OBO. May have to send some “best offers” out :).

It looks massive for its size and I looked the weight, it’s 55 grams without battery. Pretty good for a AA light. Pricewise it’s got some heavy competition so I hope they drop the price.

Too bad it doesn’t have stainless steel bezel

Looks a very nice AA/14500 torch. Excellent output for such a small size.

There are a few of us that will be getting these for review.

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I dont find the design ugly, but it’s always personal taste. I’m impressed by the numbers, but the price is too high.

I do agree with you.
At first I thought it is a titanium light.
If I were to buy an AA light with a budget of $60-70, I’ll take the tried and tested ZL anytime over this.
$40 is a more appropriate.

If it was not quite so pricey, I might consider it. But a very good S2+ or EE X6 with more runtime is quite a bit cheaper.

EDC rotation:
FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
S2+, XM-L2 T6 4C

Welcome to BLF, write2dgray!

Like that titanium Manker, they use way to much material to my taste, making the light bulky. I guess I'm more an Eagletac type of person. I do like the reflector size though, there's not much in the AA-'thrower' category.

I'll wait for the BLF-K6 Smile

Looks like a nice zebralight clone. I’d be interested for $30.

Well, after seeing this review and watching the video, I take back what I said about it being ugly. It’s still not my favorite design, but it’s not bad really, and it has a nice tight beam!

I got a similar experience: from the video it seems not that bulky and the reflector looks of really nice size! (K6 worthyWinkInnocent)

The reflector looks amazing. I don’t really care much for AA lights but the fact that it’ll take a 14500 makes me want one. The deep carry pocket clip is the main selling point for me, I like to carry my lights, not just leave them sitting on a shelf. The size of the head reminds me of the Nitecore MH20 but it’s still pocketable.

Thanks djozz, I’ve lurked for years :). I agree, too much meat on the Manker lights. I like ‘em simple – lean and simple with nice knurling.

And thanks for the link to review, it popped up shortly after I started this thread earlier today.

And too funny that mere hours after I started this thread, a true shill started a thread on CPF about the same light. It went south quickly:

Seems a bit big for a 14500 light.

The head is almost 30mm wide. That’s about the same as a Zebralight SC600. I think that might be too wide for pocket EDC.

On the other hand it does look like it has pretty good throw for a 14500 light. It must be making good use of all that interior space for a large reflector.

Don’t bet on it.
There was a proposed group buy for Manker Timeback titanium recently that was torpedoed by Manker.
GB also first advertised the light at discount, and had to raise the price to RRP after warning by Manker.
