use protected ones and dont worry.

My experience differs. The light I got drew down the voltage of good quality new protected cells significantly within a few days.
That means I have to block the circuit or remove the cells until I need the light.

I realize this doesn’t worry everyone.
But when I want to grab a flashlight in a hurry after the earthquake stops, it won’t be this one.

Pictures on taobao doesn’t load until you scroll the page down to where it is, I guess they use some sort of code to prevent the image from being retrieved by a search engine in order to save bandwidth.

Sorry I didn’t go through all the comments, and I am kinda out of flashlight world for quite some times but these lights appear to be quite interesting. Do you mind to include the link(s) to each light in the OP?

Thanks!

That Mikoze MKZ-L730 seems interesting. Any link for that one? Every google search I tried keeps coming up with Lincoln Car references (american auto manufacturer).

What I’d be really excited for is more EDC-sized (no more than 1”/25mm diameter), mod-friendly e-switch hosts. Something with the switch on a separate board that could take the popular 17mm driver designs would be ideal. Not only do e-switches offer more flexible UI options, a mechanical switch is just one more thing to melt when building a crazy FET triple.

Thumbs UpThumbs Up Yes. I love side switches, seem to me to be easier to use. But I also like a mech tail switch as a lockout, though a quarter crank of the tail cap will suffice when the threads are anodized.

I really like my MH20 and Olight S15’s because of the sideswitches

I’ve modded an MH20. It’s a bit of a hassle, but a 219C in it makes a lovely beam profile.

I’m thinking more along the lines of the Olight S2, but with the ease of changing drivers we’re used to seeing in Convoys and similar tube lights. I was hoping the Astrolux E02 would be that, but the driver isn’t so easy to swap, the stock MCPCB is defective and the mode spacing is ridiculously terrible.

Thanks freeme.
That looks a lot of product for the price (at least, the best I could make out….google translate couldn’t translate quite enough to help me) Smile

If that ever came available more readily and with easier to read specs, I might jump.
