Who makes the smallest diameter, quality cr123 light?

Something comparable in head size (but not larger) like the Fenix PD35.

Single mode (high) on/off

Single or double cr123 specifically.

I have no idea where to begin to look. Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thanks

FourSevens Mini MK II is a single CR123 light that looks pretty nice – I have no personal experience with it, though, so can’t speak directly for it.

FourSevens Mini MKII

they claim 550 lumens for 15 seconds “burst” mode, falling back to 300 lumens after that… multiple modes available. Uses TIR oprics.

I like my NiteCore EC11 a lot – great output in a small package with addition of a low red light for night vision preservation. Easy access with a long click to turbo mode (450 lumens on CR123) or to moonlight mode (1 lumen). You might want to check that one out.

NiteCore EC11

good luck with your hunt

I would own a MiniMKII if the Turbo mode was a little longer than 15s – that’s just a bit too short IMO. I had a MiniAA that I ran on 14500 LiIon for five years, it had no Turbo step-down (it just ran DD on LiIon) and it was indestructable even with frequent and daily use. I loved that light and manually regulating the temp was no issue for me. I wish the MiniMKII was the same way, or at least make the step down at 60s (I could maybe even live with 30s) – if so I would get one.

Olight S-mini. Not 1-mode, but a fairly simple UI – click on, three modes (L/M/H), click off. Hold for Moonlight, double click for High.

I think you may have a hard time finding a 1-mode light, I can’t think of any off-hand. The only stock lights I can think of with 1-mode are lights like SK68 and other cheap zoomies. Of course if you are willing to mod the driver you could make almost an light 1-mode if that is a strict requirement of yours.

All “quality” lights are going to have 3-5 modes, not just 1.

Hey, how are you? :)

I need single-mode.

I'll seek out knowledgeable modders for a potential build or two.

Thanks for your replies.

Have you considered the single mode TANK007 TK365-1? From a quick read on reviews here on BLF, TANK007 appears to be a decent quality flashlight brand.

Here’s an Amazon link: Waterproof Tank007 TK365 Mini Flashlight Pocket Portable Outdoor CREE Q5 1 Mode 180LM LED Torch Light Lamp With Pen Clip

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.

I need to get off my cloud, thinking I will find a quality budget light in single mode.

The light I'm looking for, is intended to be weapon ( high caliber, rifle) mounted. These budget lights can't handle that.

I don't want to try them for fear they will get ruined.

I looked around, but decided to modify one. Thorfire KL03 and put in a XPG2 S4 2B and a newer Convoy 4×7135 due to limited room for the battery. The Biscotti firmware has a single 100% only group if needed. On a quality 16340, it’s pushing out probably at least 600lm at 1.4A . A bit larger than my Fenix E15, but brighter and further throw.
