RIP EA11

So my EA11 has died. It was my daily carry for quite a while, and its not worth the money to mail to back to China to see if it can be repaired or replaced so I am just going to replace it.

Now, other than quite a bit of parasitic drain I really quite liked everything about the light. But my question is:

Is there something that is like the EA11 but better? By that I mean, something with similar or better lumens, similar or better throw/beam and similar or better runtimes. I am not TOO picky on the UI as I can learn a new one pretty easily, but I do like the side clicky. I’d like to keep the price the same or less than the EA11.

Thoughts?

I don’t know if this is what happened to your EA11: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/57815

The EC11 is basically the exact same light, which is good…but just runs on harder to find more expensive batteries…which is not so good.

I’m not sure that I am convinced with the whole dual button set-up. I did some reading and it seems like the parasitic drain issue is gone with the M lights though so that is a positive.

Yeah, I know what you mean, it is not so practical…
Meanwhile I remembered the Mecarmy PT14 (triple XPG2, 900 lumens, 14500 battery)! Gearbest has it for about 40€, eventually cheaper (+/- 5 €?) than the EA11 on Banggood Wink
