I’m playing with a Klarus XT12GT, Imalent DN70 and a BLF X5. For the cost of either of the first two lights you could buy 3 or more of the X5s yet the X5 keeps on impressing me.
The size, tiny. The weight, just right. The brightness, PERFECT.
It’ll light up my garden and road, it seems to run for ages on a single cell.
It seems like a perfect light apart from the bright light in the tail cap.
The XT12gt, too big. The Imalent DN70, the power buttons are too fiddly.
I’m honestly thinking of grabbing a few more of the X5s if they pop up on offer again. I can think of so many people who would want one. Leave it in a car, leave it in a cupboard, purse, laptop bag…. The list goes on.
I feel I need to buy something big and stupid as at the moment all of the lights I’ve received recently have been “small”. The other two recent additions are a Klarus mi7 and a manker e11 so I’m feeling a little emasculated.
