Lumintop EDC 01 - AAA flashlight

This is something I found some weeks ago but forget to post it earlier!
Not sure if it has been mentioned, presented or discussed here, so…take a look at the Lumintop EDC 01 (AAA) flashlight Wink

Mascaratum, where are they sold? Maybe I am not searching correctly, but I can't it on AliExpress, BangGood, GearBest, or Amazon. Thanks.

Honestly, I don’t know either! I saw the video and remembered to post it here, but I never saw it as well! Maybe it was a sample model and it can be still in production !

On LT site, have you seen there?

Found this on a Japanese site – http://roomx.jp/pc/roomb/?p=1198:

It looks a lot like the worm… just a bit shorter.

so, CW XP-G3 with a lens that looks like a TIR with honeycomb diffusion

the XP-G3 is notorious for green tint in part of the beam. I think due to being a “flip chip” design that lets light out of the side of the die, that is a different tint than the color from the middle of the LED

the TIR makes the head shorter

I like the keyring connection, it is my favory type, and I like the little clip they include, those are useful on my keys, when I want to quick release a light from my keychain

the light includes the glow in the dark silicone cap that acts as a diffuser to use the light to blind myself from the sidelight it throws.. I hate that.. Its the same diffuser that Maratac has been shipping in their AAA model for a couple of years.

I agree the body looks like the Worm, but without the weird extra long slotted tail, that I dislike anyway.

The modes are the same as the Worm and Tool.

the head of the worm works on the body of the EDC 01, but the head of the EDC does not work on the Worm (because the threads are shorter)

The Worm is available with Nichia, the EDC 01 is not

at least, thats my current impression from looking at the pics available here

This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. It solved very quickly the problem I was having.

What problem did it solve for you?

Hmm, I’ve been searching high and low for a (preferably silver) Worm 4.0, but they’re out of stock everywhere. This could explain that! Now to find out how to get ahold of one of these…

With the color versions you can choose a (warm white) Nichia.
Nice

I just wish these had the integrated clip like the Worm 4.0. It might not be for everyone, but I really liked that design. I do like the EDC01 being shorter and having a pebbled TIR though. And I still don’t understand M>L>H model order, seems like a strange decision.

I’m hoping this will be lightweight enough for my lanyard at work where M is likely the mode I would use most often (looking for things), followed by L for reading small print. H only when I go to our dark storage unit, which is infrequent. Great sequence for me! I also like LMH for little lights, for different applications.

Yeah, it does depend on the application. I typically carry a AAA light clipped to my PJs (athletic shorts) at night for stumbling around and checking on the status kids. For that purpose, I always want a clip and always want low. But there certainly are other uses for a AAA.

 Quote from the lumintop ali site  *

use the high-quality Ni-Mh or Alkaline battery, forbidden to insert the 14500 Li-ion cell

 

 This makes sense since a 14500 would have to be driven into it with a large hammer  to fit into a AAA light .....

-Also....

 

3) To avoid potential accidental activation, you also can loosen the tail cap to cut off the circuit.

  Which is hard considering it doesn't have a tailcap...and the circuit is already interrupted on a twisty light once you've losened the head . I guess this explains why they still make a UI with med/low /high mode sequence .

The light is on but no one is home

I’m curious, does the one from AliExpress come with the glow-in-the-dark diffuser cap?
(the product description does not mention it)

Tell me about it. I got an AAA Tool which looks to be a beautiful solid light, but start-on-medium condemns it to be a box-queen.

Thanx, but nah. I rarely use AAA lights, yet have a bunch of Glarees, a few Zanflares, even a non-NMM A01(!).

Whennahell I’ll ever use ‘em all, who knows. 1-2 twisties for zipper-pulls is about it.

In regards to the MLH mode distribution, from personal experience it’s a torch you’ll pull out for general utility, as the first light accessible with no finagling necessary. My Tool taught me to use it like it’s a big girl. Meanwhile, LMH is very useful for a pajama light or as a backup, like my old Thrunite Ti3 (though I use the Tool as a pajama torch, so yeah).

Speaking of, as far as AAA twisties go I’ll stay with my Ti3 and await a groundbreaking upgrade in the category.

I had similar experience, at first I started with a Ti3, that starts on firefly, but I got tired of double twisting for the majority of my use and then decided its best use was as a Pee Light, (nightstand)

Now I much prefer MLH for EDC, and the Lumintop Tool (not the LMH Massdrop version) and MLH Maratac are favorites.

Ive also come to appreciate the Oligh UI, with memory. I can set 0.5 lumens for nightstand use, and then set other brighter modes for EDC during the day, and evening. If only they were Nichia compatible..

no perfect light, which is why we have more than one Smile

Yep, I EDC the Tool too and found that Mid right off the bat makes it a quick and easy pick for ED tasks instead of always twisting twice like the Ti3, which I always treated as a backup if my main light ever went dead (wanna extend runtime as much as physically possible if that happens). My ideal torch would be a LMH Tool with mode memory like the AA Tool 2.0 promises to be; if it has no memory, Mid from the get-go is great.

Also yeah, so we can only keep buying in search of the perfect one Silly

Hmm.. The short head suggests it’s built like the Olight i3E.
LED on the driver PCB, no pill.
So it should be cheap, right?
