I have preference for USB micro because most chargers have this connector.
Switching to USB-C is only useful with high A charging.
Considering the chargers in a flashlight usually are weak there isn’t a real benefit for USB-C.

Many current power supplies have microUSB, but most new and all future power supplies will have USB-C.
Switching to USB-C is useful for easy plug injection, longer plug life and longer compatibility to power supplies in the future. In 2 years most chargers will be USB-C.

What the hell is so wrong with a lightning connector?

You can shove it in any side up or down and do it fast, it has a very small footprint, and AFAIK, pretty dang robust.

So now it’s gonna be another invention of the wheel essentially. LOL

The connector is fine, it’s just that nearly no devices are available for it. Only one company still sells products and in the future even this brand will use USB-C.
USB-C offers the same advantage and is more common.
