Wuben Kirin

Just noticed this on BG with a striking colour scheme. Looks interesting but a bit big for a 14500 flashlight.

I like the look of that one! It does look big for a 14500, until you realize that it has USB charging built in, and dual switches (side and tail) with an indicator light in the side switch (probably charge indicator). It looks like it comes with an excellent lanyard, too! I personally would prefer it in blue, and with a smooth bezel.

Reason is not automatic. Those who deny it cannot be conquered by it. Do not count on them. Leave them alone.

I guess this light has been sold for a while but in black! Despite I don’t appreciate red flashlights, this is surely a premium one with Wuben excellent quality!
But being smaller (for a 14500) wouldn’t hurt, right? Silly

Wuben is certainly taking a different tact on things. Glad to see that they're introducing some 14500 flashlight even though this one is not my style. Hope they do well - its nice to see innovation.

It does look very good but for the size, wish it was an 18650 light. It would make a for a good host for an emitter swap.

I have essentially this same light, only in black. Mine is the I331 “Iron Man”. The review can be found here. Overall, it’s a great light. It is a bit big for a 14500. Pretty neat though.

I ever owned one of their first few Wuben lights before. Overpriced light with average grade. I like the packaging box more than the light. LOL. Glad i sold it within a month. sealed

I should say that I like the design of mine more than the function. Unique for sure. But I’m pretty sure it’s got a floating pill Sad so there’s that…

The rectangular shape lighted switch and rectangular patterns on flashlight body are definitely a special feature. But not sure will Wuben continue this feature.

Wuben has several lights in this design. It’s called Black Vulture. I have the I1332 on the 16 340. The flashlight has a great look. It’s just big enough for the 1640 battery.
