Manker LAD (XP-G3 / Nichia 219C) in-depth vid review

Not everday three LAD's are run over by a car, twice... and live to tell about it!

(no LAD's were harmed in the making of this video, other than being a little TIRED, they suffered no ill effects. OK I'll cease with the puns now... )

Written review in progress and will be posted later.

It doesn’t happen often with 20+ minute flashlight videos, but I watched the whole thing this time. Many thanks for the great work! Yeah I sort of forgot about the LAD, and this video was like a second introduction to me. Honestly, I need to get this light, as it seems that it’s going to give me so much more fun using it than many 2000+ lumen $100+ lights.
I mean, it’s so wonderfully made; that solid piece of aluminium is truly gorgeous. Thanks again!

I didn't get to test standby drain, will need to  unsolder batteries but I know there's a certain individual curious about it ;o)

Oh no… Am I already known as that guy nagging about parasitic drain, hehe… Honestly I thought about asking, but didn’t as not to harass you too much… Wink
Well, and I’m actually planning on using this one as an actual EDC, therefore battery drain will mostly be a result of actual usage, so parasitic drain should be of no concern.
But it warms my heart to know you’re thinking about me. Smile
