Blue.

Hello. I'm looking for a light for my chick. I'm thinking 14500 or 10440. 18650 might work too. Just no multi-cell and under $30~ The only catch is it has to be blue. I was thinking the E03 but I'm afraid it will be too purple. Also found these. I will get one if nothing else pops up. Are there any lights with blue LEDs. I'm sure she would really like that.

This should be good XTAR WK30 Here is the review

You should be able to get it for less than $20.

The a3 looks a little better than the xtar. Would be cool if it took 14500s instead though.

I'm a little confused why you would want a 14500 or 10440..?? personally gifting a light that has to have a specialty charger and a lithium seems tough ..

 the 10440 i've taken off the table ..A little light isn't going to be all that impressive if it gains 30% more lumens .. it will just run hot and kill runtime

what about the CQG S-2 stainless steel , comes in a neutral tint  3 modes  will take a 14500 and 16$ .. sounds like the bomb to me

Well we live together so the charging and stuff wouldn't be too big of a deal. And she already knows the lithiums aren't disposable. She uses a c78 on a 14500 right now. I just wanted to get her something a little prettier. I've never been much of a fan of aaa's or 10440's. The CQG looks really nice. But it must be blue.

Maybe you just wait a little longer and get her a blue L2P with a drop-in of  choice?

I wouldn't give up on the E03 just yet. The color changes depending on the light source. Inside it may look purple but outside it might look blue.

How about a blue mini-maglite 'match'-modded with a low voltage drop-in?

The L2P and match mag sound pretty good. How long till the L2P is available? Thanks everyone for the help.

I would get her one of the Johnnymac mini mags. Than she would have something unique and very cool.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

That would be me. Smile

Here is a link to a thread I started for my "micro-'mac'lites".

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/3041

I happen to be in the process of converting the blue mini that is shown in the beginning of that thread. It will be completed tomorrow. My avatar pic also shows a charcoal one I made and sold.

The L2p should be available since middle of Sept., but Solarforce don't release it until now. Solarforce-sales does not answer any question about te releasedate on facebook. I think there are some problems with the release.

Next problem for you: I will buy all blue L2p, if they are released Tongue out - blue is my favorite color and I like the Solarforce L2p (I have a black and a grey one of 2010)

Light up the darkness.
