Lad’s interesting side , you can see three emitters right there . Left and right , two 5mm red LEDs , and in the center the main LED , a Nichia 219C 4000-4500k 90+cri . Main led uses a TIR optic , not a reflector .

Dimensions Time ! :
Heigth , 51.7mm :
Length , 27.85mm :
And a small comparison to a well known light , Nitecore Tube :
Flashlight has 4 main modes , and 4 hidden modes :
When the flashlight is off , single click (short click) enables Low Mode . A longer click activates Last used mode . From this state , every single click , navigates through these modes (main group) : Low-Medium-High-Red
From On or Off , double click enables Strobe . Then , every single click , navigates through these modes (hidden group) : Strobe-Dragon Breath-SOS-Beacon
A double click , when flashlight is On , changes between Main group and Hidden group modes . As some people mentioned , second click must be quite fast , which is indeed a little difficult .
While Charging , e-switch led blinks :
When battery is full (estimated time from empty battery is 1 hour) , led stops blibking .
Low – 21 lumens
Medium – 64 lumens
High – 218 lumens
Red – 1 Lumen (manufacturer rated)
High mode :
As you can see it drops down at about 40% of the max output , in the first 2 minutes . At the 33 minutes mark , it switched to red leds (means battery is running low) . I will test if switching between the modes , and switching back to High , brings brightness back to 100% .
Medium mode : Provides a steady output for 87 minutes , graph coming …
Manker Lad : Coming soon…

Control Shot :
A small , compact light from Manker . Features 3 leds , two red and one main led that it can be a Nichia 219C or a Cree xp-g3 . On highest setting it provides enough runtime for a flashlight of that size , but with a stepdown at the first 2 minutes . It has lots of modes options, with full memory mode for all modes. It is really small, and as i showed in the review before fits ok on keychain .
Comment if you want me to check something on the flashlight , or tell your opinion . Thanks !
