Hmmm… This seems unlikely:

A reflector plus a pebbled lens??
Why not a TIR?
I suspect it is a TIR.

My guess is that it is a small TIR optic.
I’ve been using them in some AA flashlights and the beam gets improved in all of them Blushing

EDIT: maybe d_t_a can tell us more about it Wink

The previous EDC01 shown is from a friend’s.

I’ve just gotten a “warm-white” (Nichia 219C) EDC01, which looks like below:

So it’s not a reflector, it’s actually the pill.

Hum, I guess someone put a reflector there, it doesn’t seem much like a pill Silly
If you look at the picture, the reflector seems oversized to if the head and seems hollow !
Well, it was some kind of invention Big Smile

Looks like those “clickbait” youtube videos where you see one image as thumbnail and then you pass the entire video seeking for it but it’s never there Big Smile

Hi Paul, Thanks, I ordered (joined Drop?) for two of the EDC 01. For the price it looks good. I am not sure I understand “Massdrop.??

Presumably it’s a batch customized exclusively for Massdrop.

I wish they mentioned the mode order. The EDC01 standard order is M/L/H, but many of the Lumintop lights from Massdrop have been customized to L/M/H (which I desire). The lack of clarification is leaving me on the fence Sad

The light being sold on Massdrop doesn’t seem to be a Massdrop special edition, so probably it will be the regular UI.
But let’s see what they say in the discussions!! Thumbs Up

A while back I bought a set of the Seasons ones, all with the warm Nichia option.

They are lovely little lights!

Love this cute little light. I have had the Lumintop Tool AAA for 3 years now and I have started to realise the beauty of starting with Medium. You get a usable amount of light right away. However, I run mine exclusively on 10440s so Low is more than enough, usually Smile

Lumintop is really putting a lot of thought into their packaging!

TIR is the best choice for lights like this i.m.o, especially pebbled ones.
Cheaper too. Shorter and less weight also.

Nice threaded pill it has.
I may want a copper version, if they make one in the future.

And the low and medium modes, visible PWM, or at last a better driver than tool and worm?

I would say AliExpress, but it only shows the “cold white” option currently Sad
In Lumintop’s site, isn’t it there?

All I seem to find on Lumintop’s site (or anyone else’s) is the Cree version

There used to be a ‘warm-white’ option for the Lumintop EDC01 on Lumintop’s AliExpress website, I was able to buy it previously, and the “warm-white” option there turned out to be Nichia 219C.

There are also a few differences I noted with the cool-white XP-G3 EDC-01 versus the Nichia version.

On the Nichia version, the flashlight head will have a picture of the season associated with it, whereas the XP-G3 will just indicate “EDC01”.

Thank you for the info! Wish they still had this option. It appears that on all sites that sell it, this is no longer an option.

I just got a Lumintop EDC01 and it is a fantastic aaa light.
My normal keychain light is a Olight i3e but this may end up replacing it.

I’m kind of new to led lights and didn’t know there were twisty lights with different modes like the Lumintop.
It is a nice feature.

It really is an awesome little twisty. I just hope we get better color options eventually.

I will grab one in Purple! But i want to ask if someone can help to identify the one i marked on the picture?
Is it a special Ti version or a light that is no longer available?

Hm, comes with my favorite “lobster claw” clip, ideal for a belt loop. That’s nice.
