16340 light for keychain

What’s the best 16340 light for a keychain? It looks like most of the smallest 16340 lights (olight s1 mini, Klarus Mi1C) don’t have a lanyard hole to latch on to.

I have a UTorch S1 Mini right now, and I love the size but not the UI. Considering getting the Fenix E16

What do you guys do on your key chain?

I think this one is cool. Of course it’s not exactly cheap. You can find it elsewhere for less than $40. Just used the Amazon ad because it was easy to find.

https://www.amazon.com/LUMINTOP-Lumens-Rechargeable-Flashlight-Elfin/dp/...

I know it’s not wicked popular but, that is why I probably like it.

That’s a good recommendation, the Lumintop’s dimensions look really good and the design looks slick. It’s a bit colorful for my taste, I wonder if I can find it in a solid color…

An earlier model of that light has been discontinued for a while now. The Lumintop Torpedo 007. You can find them used pop up from time to time. Here is a link for it but it’s not actually in stock. If you like it better you might want to post a “Want To Buy” here on BLF and maybe someone will have one they will let go of.

Although I became to like and have more 16340 size lights in the past few months (On the Road M1, M3 Pro and i3) I use a Rovyvon Aurora flashlight in my keychain!

It is super lightweight and if you don’t use it for extended periods of time (due to battery runtime) I would tell you to get one of those!

If you want a 16340, the new Fenix lights seem nice, and you have the Olights as well! Also, if you don’t need long runtimes, check the new Folomov with 10440, reviewed here by jon_slider and zeroair !!

Trustfire Mini-02 is a CR123A light, but very nice stainless steel keychain light. The body is fairly thick, which is unusual for stainless steel flashlights these days. I don’t know if 16340 is “supported”, but it does work. This light has been around a very long time. But it’s still being sold at least on Alibaba and on eBay and one listing on Amazon.

Enogear used to have something like this Lumintop and even one bullet shaped that would be nice as keychain lights.
However their site has been off for a while Sad

BTW, Massdrop has this 16340 light: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-path-convertible-cr123-pocket-flas...

It doesn’t have a lanyard hole, but has a deep carry clip!

Thanks for all of the recommendations – the Lumintop from fastech looks like almost exactly what I have in mind. I’m gonna read over a couple reviews and probably pick one up.

The Rovyvon Aurora is a bit different, but now I’m tempted to get one of those too Smile

If you like moonlight, high CRI and some extras on the side (UV light + RED light + White light), and if you don’t like Strobes, I’d recommend the RovyVon Aurora A8! Thumbs Up

Unno, for a keychain light, bouncing around in a pocket with other crap that can press in random places, I’d prefer a twisty to try to prevent accidental activation. So for me, a Jet-II would be about perfect for a 16340 light.

Some of the Wuben E-series come in 16340s as well as 14500s, so czech ‘em out, too.

 

Funny(?), but every time I see your handle, I read it as “Mr Steal Your Organs”. Visions of waking up in a bathtub filled with ice are rather disturbing, I gotta admit.

Are you referring to the RovyVon?
So far they have been “pocket activation proof”:

Press&Hold for momentary Turbo
Double click for moonlight (and clicks to advance modes)
Triple click & 4 clicks to activate the side LEDs

I’ve been using it for a while and it didn’t lit up a single time. I can’t say the same for my Nitefox K3 (twisty) and even the Olight i3T EOS (Forward clicky switch).

Unless if locked (electronically or physically), the Wubens will have more probability to turn ON in a pocket as they use single click to turn ON in the last used mode!

I have a few of these. Three mode twisty. Turns on in the the same mode you turned it off in.(at least mine does) Unfortunately one mode is strobe but it has less weight that a stainless light and is pretty well made for the money.

Being that I don’t have any nor are even familiar with them, I’d say no. LOL

The Wubens I’m referring to are twisties, 2-stage switch. Light twist turns it on, tighter turns it on brighter.

These come in gold, pink, other fancy colors in addition to black.

Like these, I think…

To me, they’re too pretty to get scuffed up in a pocket filled with loose change, keys, etc., but if anyone really wants to…

Ahah, sorry, thought you were talking about the possibilities of having a side switch button turning on in the pocket Silly

Ahh, those!! They seem nicely built and very reliable. I was tempted to get one a while ago in a groupbuy from _ the _but never went through. Would be a nice choice, though!

Here are some more ideas for mrstealyourgains:

WTB flashlight that can detect when it’s in your pocket and not turn on even when the button is pressed.

> not turn on

How about a sliding or rotating cover to protect the power button?
Like the threaded ring that Zanflare uses to cover its USB port.
Make it so closing the cover turns the light off …..

Nah. Even my MH20 that’s clipped to the inside of my pocket, I always do a TCLO.

That’s why I like twisties for in-pocket carrying (when I did it). A twisty is a TCLOed light! LOL

Well, except at the head, not the tail. Y’all know what I mean, though.

Believe it or not, I had that discussion with someone, who suggested a “foreskin light”. Sick

No. Just… no.

The lock out method works just fine. The only twisty I ever really carried was the Jetbeam AA light. Jet something, I always get them mixed up. It came on more than a few times loose in my pocket and just a few times clipped on my pocket. Not that big of a deal really. I noticed it before it was able to drain the cell down too terribly. Then I started carrying mostly tail clicky lights and now I’m back to carrying mostly side switch lights. Nicely recessed switches so I have never had one of those come on. I have had a Tip and a Tini that come on way too easy in my pocket on a keychain. Love them both, but they are always dead.

Yeh, the Jet-I is the 14500, and the Jet-II is the 16340.

I keep the Jet-II in my “side-bag” (“waist-bag” that’s MOLLEd to my slingbag).

Nomem, so always starts in firefly. Pretty sure the Jet-I has memory.

That’s tempting, even though I don’t usually use twisties.

Sure can’t argue with the price.

right but keychain is rarely used – mine is rarely used anyway [photon X]

twisty always makes the shortest light

i hate twisties too but for keychain and $2- and SOME good features – nice light pattern and color.. color anodized body…

I used the Nitefox K3 (twisty) for a while in the keychain and was quite good!
It was only replaced because the RovyVon Auroras are less big and are lighter than it, and also because of the side switch, that is preferable in some situations.

Unno, for a keychain light, bouncing around in a pocket with other crap that can press in random places, I’d prefer a twisty to try to prevent accidental activation. So for me, a Jet-II would be about perfect for a 16340 light.

Some of the Wuben E-series come in 16340s as well as 14500s, so czech ‘em out, too.

 

Funny(?), but every time I see your handle, I read it as “Mr Steal Your Organs”. Visions of waking up in a bathtub filled with ice are rather disturbing, I gotta admit.


Sounds like you’d love this movie – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0HggAQPmlM

Thanks for everyone’s recommendations on twistys – I don’t normally prefer one, but I do understand that they generally allow for a smaller overall size, so I might consider that route.

Wow, I actually think I don’t have that one in my stable.

Was initially thinking of https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0963194/ . LOL

Wow! That’s a pretty light! Love

Just be aware that that light only has a 3.0v driver, so it’s CR123As, or RCR123s. 16340s will probably blow driver.

Be careful there. Lots of brands call their cells RCR123A, some are 3.7v and some are 3.0v. Example a Olight RCR123A isn’t the same as a Tenergy RCR123A. The Olight is a 3.7v cell and the Tenegry is a 3.0v cell, and they all are of the size of 16340.
