Lumintop Tool AAA Keychain Flashlight Review

Hi all,

Here is a great piece of AAA power!

If you have a AAA light you love please feel free to share it with us!

In Him (Jesus Christ) was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Hi VOB,

Nice video. Well Done. Music good but not intrusive.

Just recently discovered these Lumintop Tool’s myself, so I agree with your comments about instantly having an affinity, and the Quality feel about them.

Could be the start of another collecting / using category, as no AAA lights bought before these.

Cheers,
Splott-Light Smile

Nice vid vestureofblood. You did excellent job describing this light. I used to carry the Streamlight microstream exclusively and then I switched to the Inova XS AAA, but now im hooked on Lumintop Tool its just as good as the designer brands. Love it.

Nice job as always VOB.
I will add: Knurling is top notch. Also same manufacture as Maratac’s. All great lights. Check out the Copper version too. Super fine EDC

Nice rappin’ review Smile

I hate the tailswitch on these an that they cannot tail stand.

However, the Reylight Ti version is one of my favorite flashlights.

If I’ve got a torch that won’t tail stand, I just stand it in a small glass or jar

Nice review, gifted mine but liked it so much I bought 3 copper ones

I recently swapped the LED in one of these to the 219C and it is even better. With a 10440 it makes about 500 lumens and a great tint. Much nicer then the stock XP-G2.

Your video mentioned a magnetic non-clicky tail cap, where do I find that? The product listing on the usual suspect websites (GB, BG) didn’t mention it being included.

Edit: nevermind, I now see the Amazon link in the video description.

Code doesn’t seem to work though?

Received my new Tool tonight after seeing lots of great reviews. Unfortunately, the light may be smarter than I am as I cannot make it come on. Tried both the supplied battery (after removing the tab that protects it from coming on during transit) and a spare Duracell. Just to make sure, I tried one of my new batch of Eneloops that came in today with the light. Nada.

Tried using a paper clip to check connection between the tailcap and the battery. Nothing, but I may not have hit the right spot. Both Duracells measure 1.5x V while the new Eneloop shows 1.3+ V.

I’m open to suggestions. Really hoping that it isn’t DOA.

ETA: Also tried the magnetic tailcap but no love. Still new to the quality flashlight world so appreciate any help..

ETA 2: Think I figured it out. It’s working now but I think I’ll need to invest in some white lithium grease if that’s what everyone is using for the threads (I’m going to do a search now). I’m really pleased with the output, just as everyone stated!
