Why????

XHP35 HI is much more efficient than XP-L HI. Especially at high currents. I expect such mod to turn this light from a good flooder to a great flooder (while it remains OK thrower at the same time).

Okay, so I’m assuming Vinh does not want to change the mcpcb or optics so hes just going to swap emitters and drivers.

I assumed he would swap more parts to get a really big output. He’s usually pretty extreme like that. He seems to be using a conservative approach here.

I’m a big fan of Manker TIR.
4 LEDs in a 22 mm diameter is a lot. But more importantly – it can actually reasonably collimate them, competing with 20% larger Carclo. If I’m not mistaken, Manker actually wins that competition.
I’m a big fan of XHP35 HI.
Lots of output in a tiny space. And good efficiency. And good tints. And good throw as well. I do have some gripes, I believe it could be significantly improved, but it is great as it is already.
I find the combination of both awesome.
Actually the first time I saw them together was in a mock-up of Vinh’s BLF GT. Which had more than 2 TIRs. I fell in love immediately….not in that GT, but in the TIR+LED set.

It would be hard to fit anything more powerful in that space, regardless of how extreme you are. Unless one was to make a mule.
So yes, it may not be a hard mod (depending on the driver). But I believe it will be a well-working one.

That looks so great! (More pics in post #1)

But you keep using that one click on, long press off that I’m always getting confused with and drives me crazy.

Will you ever change the UI so that on/off are the same action? (Edit, it looks like you can long press to turn on. That’s not too bad, then.)

Wait, you can’t rotate the clip? That’s a second problem for me.

Tired

I’ve looked at all sides and angles and don’t see any type of USB port for charging. Is the title correct? How does it recharge?

They do have a AA size light, but I don’t think it takes 14500. Just pop off that white diffuser and it looks pretty good. Run you a eneloop in it.

Really liking the T02. Might have to try one out. Love the outputs on both cells. Mode spacing is nice on both cells as well. I think it’s a winner.

I like the look and shape. I’m not sure why you chose 50.2. I would go 70.2 and make it a real 3000 lumen.
The long press on/off is very irritating in this type of light. If the charging circuit is maybe 2A, then that would be a good thing. 3A is even better, but protected cells may have an issue with that.

This is too strange for me. What is the purpose for it? Is it supposed to be a very small, throwy light?

It looks cute, the UI is only “okay”. I don’t see any usb recharging on it and the clip can not rotate are negatives for me.

This is interesting. Maybe you can describe the function of the different pieces. Is one a glass breaker? The other pointy end for self defense? Maybe it’s a ball point pen?

Like this?

That kinda sucks. It might be easier to just carry spare batteries. That way it works when you need it and you don’t have to scramble to reassemble it in the dark.

It looks like Fenix, Olight and Nitecore 16340 have a 0.3A charge rate. Klarus looks to have a 1A charger built in.

I think like this.
I don’t think it sucks. Normally you don’t recharge in the dark anyway, if capacity is too low for a single night, just carry spares or take another light.
I find such charger to be useful in multi-day trips where it weighs much less than several spares, especially if your phone uses the same connector and you have the cable anyway. Which is not my case. Wink

I would want this for everyday carry. Batteries don’t run down in the day time, they run down at night when your using them. Lol

I guess my particular situation is unique to me. It’s just a shame I can’t find the right light for my needs out of all these similar styles and brands.

I may give up on finding a 90° head light and just use the new OTR M3 Pro.

I have ordered a 16340 light that I may EDC largely because of this style of rechargeability.
But with my EDC lights I just tend to check battery from time to time, so I can charge it before it’s empty.

Oh man, Manker makes such good flashlights but I can’t ignore their let’s call it “extremely loud” styling, it is sooo far from what I like! (think: compact, straight lines, elegant)

The Zebralight styling is too round for me too, in fact all those angled headlamps have that round-ish head, while I like straight lines and edges.

I really fancy a E04. Been keenly after a little right angle torch with
Mini li-ion cell. Instead of a AAA cell.
Lots of flashing modes Big Smile
Flood patten
USB charge
headstrap (opt)
pocket clip
voltage level indication.
magnet
etc etc
basicly its just what i’ve been after Smile

£34 sounds like theres price markup.

If its made better than the first mini torch/flashlight (flat, keychain style) manker did, cus the button cover fell out of mine and so i had to tape some foam over the switch for it to work. Also the leds own lens and white foster stuff, came off when i took it apart in my effort to solder a better fix. I guess the led had gotten very/too hot.

However in the E02, the heatsink design looks far better. Looking at reviewers photos. So if the heat sinking in the E04 is as good or better than the E02 i will feel more confidant that it will have longer product life span. Smile

heh i use my first manker keychain torch as a fancy blue light now Smile

hehe if theres a coupon ill keenly buy one now. else i am waiting to see if price goes down.
cus for £35 there is the TI version of E02! while the Au version is £20~ but i really want E04 and its native liion cell. Smile
I guess your keen to get your money back after investing in tooling, setup, moulds, etc

Feature tweak: I would love the switch modes via double click to have a longer time threshold or a different click patten because with cold hands its very hard to click that quickly. I am a young person (23 years old)

Wish list:
Tough industrial metal switch.
USB powered mode
Water*poof* usb socket. not a rubber cover/flap.
