my estimated lumens (Trevilux-Box) for NimH comparing with my other references in 2016 for 1xAA lights (klarus mi7 / Manker E11 / JetBeam Jet-I mk):
values for NiMH and 14500: brand values and estimated values:
Without battery: 26 gr.With Energizer Ultimate Lithium 42 gr.With 14500 Klarus battery 48 gr.With Eneloop NiMH 1900 mA 53 gr.
Completed the review in spanihs in the Blog: http://luxlinternas.blogspot.com.es/2016/10/review-klarus-mi7-xp-l-hi-v3-1xaa14500.html
I have make 2 version in english of the runtime graph for show here in BLF (review with one unit bought by me)
1. Tested without fan in the hightest modes with NiMH Fujitsu 1.900 mA and Klarus 14500 (800mA), for see datail of step down;
Now complete runtime without fan, with the same batteries:
When finish I remove the battery and I have measured 3.12V with the Klarus 14500 and 0.9V with the NiMH:
Nice video. Thanks for posting!

Next week I will start the “writing review” (now I am very busy).
For me Mi7 one of the best AA. Why? :
1. High compatibility AA batteries (NiMH, alkaline, Primary Lithium, LiFePO, 14500 protected +and +unprotected…)
2. Efective lockout: other offers electronic lockout but, this is very safety (5 seconds for lockout, 3 fast press for unlock)
3. Offer a battery check (0-30/30-70/70-100 % )
4. Low battery protection.
5. Over 200 lumens with NiMH, over 500 lumens with 14500.
6. Direct access to low mode or to high mode.
7. Nice design, tailstand, 3 colours available,….
Yep, I like it too. The only two negatives so far to me, that it comes without the clip and NW tint.
Some data, meassured with my lux/box (% of mistake is possible)
What do you think…for a light of 26 gr…..is enough?…;-))
bezel 19mm diameter, body 17.6 mm……..
Nice review, seems like a nice light. I’ve got a Jet 1 MK in route, I’ll probably pick this up next.
Nice review of a light to consider.

You are welcome.
bada, bada bumppppppp
How do you like it compared to the Jetbeam MK1? I like the MK1 a lot for its extreme lightweight, but the output on NiMh is lacking.
My latest reviews: Massdrop Brass AAA, DQG Tiny 26650 III, Thrunite TC12 V2, Xiaomi Power Bank 2, Blitzwolf LT5 Pro Lantern, Olight H1 Nova
You can see at the end of the the video, beam of JetBeam and the Klarus. I like the Klarus with Primary Lithium is really lightweight!! With 14500 JetBeam is also great with 14500 (of course, with XP-G2, JetBeam -I mk can not be as powerful as Klarus or Manker with XP-L Hi).
But for use with NiMH, JetBeam Mk is much lower than Klarus (Mi7) or the Manker (E11)…
very nice review - thanksfor your work!
if you want to buy a flashlight or battery for a better price: just send a mail - i will try to save you money!

Dang, based on that video I think I should have gone with Manker E11 NW in the first place. Will probably sell the Mi7 right away and get the Manker. Much nicer tint, much floodier beam pattern, which I think is better for a pocket EDC than maximum throw.
Manker is good with NiMH, but for 14500 they force me to use unprotected 14500, and I hate 14500 unprotected. I love the battery check for NiMH and for 14500 of the klarus Mi7. I prefer Klarus, 2 option Manker and 3 option JetBeam (but for price JetBeam is really also a good option).
Modding the tailcap with a 12mm*2mm Neodymium (might swap to a 3mm)

excellent! Do you lose the ability to use a lanyard?

I’m really liking my Mi7 also. I do wish it had a pocket clip though so I put mine on on a P7 clip but it takes longer get get out of my pocket than it would wit an actual clip. It has also turned on high in my pocket a couple to of times, but overall it’s one of my favorite AA lights.

Turning it on from lockout mode is frustrating.
Mine goes to battery check.

While I don’t yet have this light, I admit I am not fond of electronic lockouts.
One advantage of electronic side switch is for ease of use. You can quickly operate the light while maintaining a good handshake grip. This can be faster than twisties or tailcap clickies.
That advantage is completely lost if you have to jump through hoops just to enable the switch. Far better just to have a stiffer or more recessed switch that you can safely leave enabled all the time.
They should use a lockout similar to what the UltraTac K18 brass and SS uses. Double click to both enable and disable.

I have yet to need instant access to strobe on a AA/AAA light.

That is what it’s suppost to do! You can also lock out by unscrewing the head slightly.
What is the point of lockout mode if head turning is better option?
Great light but bad UI
1. I prefer a electronic lockout.
2. But better if I have option for electronic or mechanical lockout. This have both.
3. In others lights the electronic lockout is very easy for accidental turn on….this makes not very safety. I like this lock out.
4. I do not think that aaa or aa light is a tactical light….I really do not see useful a strobe (is agood extra option, but not useful defensive option…). strobe direct access, interesting in my tacticals (P20,P10, ST11….), but have no sense on a little EDC, I prefer direct access to High and low mode, is a perfect and simple interface for a good EDC.

I thought about getting a 10×3 mm neodyme magnet instead of a 12 mm one, to have bit more space for the lanyard and not too much power on the magnet.
Edit: unfortunately after a few days my resumee is that the Mi7 is just too big to be carried in a normal jeans trousers pocket … too bad. Will give the Astrolux M01 a try for a perfect pocket light.
Yep, almost all AA-lights are to big for jeans pockets but they are O.K. for khakis.
