I think this is an N219b model (its sealed I cant confirm).

I believe the newer model w 219c is 20 lumens brighter, but greener, has less output in the red spectrum, so colors dont pop as much as the 219b

I prefer the higher red output of the 219b, over the higher lumen output of the 219c

if you agree, buy mine, if you feel the other way, countycom has these available also

enjoy a classic copper AAA light, with a factory Nichia!

flashaholeism is not the subject of this thread..

stream of consciousness:

copper tool head fits copper maratac body yes?
Knurling varies between different versions of the Maratac/Tool

Massdrop copper tool has eSwitch, and LMH

Lumintop worm was also basis for Prometheus Beta, but w LMH
https://darksucks.com/collections/beta-flashlights/products/beta-qrv2-qu...
Lumintop copper worm is MLH, low is 3 lumen in Nichia
Lumintop copper Tool is MLH

massdrop copper tool is LMH starting @3 lumen in Nichia
massdrop Ti Tool is LMH

reylight TiTool and ReyLight CuTool were LMH starting @ 1 lumen
they were followed by the Lumintop versions, in MLH

see the pattern?
Lumintop builds MLH worm and tool
ReyLight had them do LMH tool CU and TI
Massdrop had them do LMH tool CU Ti and AL
DarkSucks had them do LMH from worm

Maratac is Lumintop MLH
(maratac claims vastly higher lumens but tests the same as Lumintop Tool on my lightmeter)

hope you dont get brainfry

I am not a collector, I might be an accumulator though

Ahh, so I need a ReyLight if I want a low moonlight and LMH, thank you.

I do see the pattern.

These lights are amazing. I am really coming around to the massdrop Tool for it’s quick/easy/one-handed operation. Nice light, just not as beautiful as the maratac. My copies of each have nearly identical beams at all levels. Thanks for all of the info, apparently I have more to explore.

Does the aluminum Tool also accept 10440’s? I didn’t think so but am hoping that’s the case, thx.

I’m sorry, this is the second time I’ve deleted a post on this thread (and forum) because I DIDN’T READ closely. Initially, I thought you said the eswitch version CAN support 10440, then I read more closely, and therefore deleted my thread. I’m done deleting, promise. Facepalm

I don’t have an aluminum Tool…butt I have a few copper ones which all work fine w/10440
none of my e/switch ones (titanium ones) work, just on one output
it has to do with the switch

lucydog…
Thank you for posting this clarification.
It’s just hard to justify my reply when it’s gone.
Yeah, it appears that the e/switch can not support the 10440 battery.
The Tool is a great light and I carry one in two of my outdoor grab hoodies.

I got my e-switch version today and was initially putoff by the UI. “5 clicks to high??? Awe, h*ll no!” Yet it’s the one I’ve reached for throughout the day because it is one-handed and quick. I like it a lot, and I expect to like the reverse-click version even more.

good catch!

heres the feature/bug skinny
the eSwitch Tools on 10440 are high mode only until the battery drops to 3.8volts

massdrop aluminum tool is eSwitch, so 10440 feature/bug applies

there is also an aluminum Tool w Nichia and Mechanical switch, it does work with 10440, but bear in mind there is no overdischarge protection built into the light

same for Maratac.. no OD protection, and unsanctioned to use 10440, but people do..

Im a LiIon newbie, hung up on using protection in case I fall asleep with the light on

Hmmmm, now I’ll be researching whether my k18 has a protected circuit. As far as Li-Ion, the IMR’s are fairly safe – and you can always use a protected battery (if it fits). I use 18650’s, don’t so much see the appeal of the 10440’s over the longer running lithium primaries, except for the pocket rocket WOW factor. I prefer the CR123 size for more power in a small package. Years ago I used a mechanical ecig that took 10440’s, lasted about 3 hours between charges!

In case anyone cares, and since this thread is all over the place anyway Big Smile the 2017 version of the k18 does have OD protection:
