Jaxmnve E18 - Budget keychain flashlight - Anyone?

Hi there people!

I’ve seen this light a while ago, while I was searching for the Jaxmnve M3 light. The UIs were similar back then (M-H-Strobe // Stepless dimming) so I didn’t pay much attention to the light.

Now the UI of the E18 has also changed (according to manufacturer specs) and is similar to the “new” M3 version:
L-M-H // Stepless Dimming (after double click) // Strobe (after triple click).

The light is 5 cm long, USB rechargeable. According to buyers reviews the light is about 200lumens (less brighter than the Nitecore TIP), and has a 220mAh battery.

Price is about 10€.

Has anyone tried this? I might give it a try, but wanted to know if anyone has experience with this?

Hum, does it mean you have one or that you like the specs? Big Smile

Oh, ok Wink For a moment I thought you had one Wink
It seems as small as the LAD, at least Wink Different UI and luminous levels, less expensive, but a not so good LED (as the Manker)! And probably less bright (200/250 vs 300).

I’ll probably take a chance on one of these, but apart from AliExpress buyers, I couldn’t find a decent review Oops

Nice find, looks interesting, will follow with interest. Beer

Sized similar to the LAD and based on single button UI. Cool tint LED and no secondary red LED though.

Interestingly the Jazman E18 is indicated as being 11g heavier, perhaps a larger battery (would be good)?

Count me in if there’s a GB coming.

Move towards the light.

Hum, from the pics on AliExpress reviews, it is a small battery, 220mAh. Don’t know how big the LAD battery is.
This one also has an attached pocket clip on the back, that seems to be reversible! Maybe that increases the weight as well!

About GB, at least I will not propose one, but maybe other members or “affiliate members” here are interested in contacting the store to see if they have any “coupon” or discount/promotion Wink

I guess I’ve seen this light cheaper (8€?) on the store, but now it is about 10€…

Ehehe, no typo, it is really Jaxmnve! Some lights of this “brand” were even sold in Banggood ! The names are close, but I guess Jaxman quality is much better (despite the lights from one brand and the other are completely different)

That’s disappointing about the battery size, was hoping for more. The Feedback photos show what looks like a solid metal bezel/head, so presumably some of that additional weight (relative to the similarly sized LAD) is additional heatsinking. Smile

My guesstimate is the Jaxmnve E18 clip adding maybe 3 g, based on the similar Acebeam UC15 clip which is larger and weighs in at 4 g. The E18 clip design also looks similar to the UC15’s which is not reversible Sad

I hear you about GB’s, I have to take my hat off to those who are willing to do them, it’s not for the faint of heart because one can take a lot of heat for merely being the middle man Shocked

Jaxmnve, that’s a mouth full. Might be interesting to hear from those who know the story behind it.

Never the less, I’m intrigued and the cost is BLF friendly enough to pull the trigger (or click the mouse), now the wait… Arrow Right

Move towards the light.

Yup, the metal body seems…“tough” and a bit heavy! But also “impact resistant” Wink

Hum, taking a better look to the photos, it is probable that it is not reversible. Or it may be, but doesn’t seem to fit so well towards the top! Unless the clip is…modded Evil

Just like you said, it seems to be “troublesome” to be and intermediate person, even when the “rules” and conditions are well explained. So I will skip that function and only buy the light and give some feedback on it when it arrives Wink Then others may buy it or not :

Not this month, but soon I’ll get one, for me or for my parents or brother! It is small and can be useful to carry it around instead a big light!!
I don’t know the story, but I know it gets confusing sometimes to write it down and read about it Big Smile

Did you decide to get the JAXMNVE E18? If you did, I’d like to know your impressions.

Hey!! I had to hold down my horses and put this light on stand-by for now! I will probably order it next month and will let you know what I think of it Wink

Thanks. I want one with a button (twisting my Glaree 3 times every time I want the high level gets old). But I’m reluctant to spend the $ for the Manker LAD or the Nitecore Mini.
