This is a picture I posted in the thread: What’s your favorite AAA-light?

Since then I got myself a red Manker E02. January 15th Drop.com shipped a blue titanium light. And the Tank007 E09 left da house in a GAW.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

/\ Impressive collection. Congrats! Thumbs Up Which ones do you use the most? And which one do you admire the most for its build quality & design?

Many thanks)

Those flashlights that in the photo, I do not use. I used to use Thrunite Ti and Ti2. Reliable flashlights.
Now in use in severe conditions Lumintop Worm SS.

The most practical and convenient I think Klarus MiX6 Ti & SS.

In terms of design and workmanship, I like Foursevens Preon P0, Surefire Titan B, Olight i3T Copper, Olight ION, Klarus Mix6 Ti, Sunwayman R02A, Fenix LD02 V2.0, Fenix 15th Anniv.

I’m surprised you didn’t include the Jetbeam Jet-U, which is in your collection. I find it well made and efficient, with a pleasing thin design. When on sale, you can nab one as cheaply as around $12 USD.

Jet-U is a intresting and quality flashlight, but the number of places in the finals of the beauty contest is limited;)

If the issue of price is fundamental, then with a coupon it was possible to purchase Lumintop EDС01 for 7-8 $. But I like the “classic” Olight i3s more them.
But the same Klarus MiХ6 or 4/7 Preon P0 do not go to any comparison with them.
My IMHO only)

Yeah, I passed on the Lumintop EDC01 because I couldn’t get it with Nichia. It’s now all XPG3 now. I passed on Olight i3S as well, but wish I’d grabbed one when I had the chance. They’re going for stupid high prices now. Btw, what consideration leaves Lumintop Tool AAA out for you? I find it has excellent build quality and design, good switch, but max output is disappointing. Cell needs to be totally charged up for max, and doesn’t seem to take long for light to step down & refuse to go max until fully charged again.

Lumintop Tool is not bad. But I believe that he is too big to wear on keys. In addition, the rubber button may tear on a bunch of keys. In my understanding, this is not a keychain, but a microlight. It is not very expensive, and suitable as a small gift. )

And I do not like the new version of this flashlight with TIR optics and memory of the last mode.

I like Lumintop IYP07. But it is also large enough and it has a memory of modes… But then a button with a metal cap Wink

I have two Lumintop Tool AAA lights and they have flush metal buttons. Titanium & copper models. So I see there’s an earlier version out of aluminum that has rubber button. I wonder if it has same driver?
I wasn’t aware of the IYP07 before. Nice light. I like that it has Nichia emitter option. Might be a bit slippery… no knurling. But could wrap grip tape on body.

A copper flashlight is for the soul).
As for titanium, I can say the following: Lumintop “managed” to kill all the advantages of titanium in this flashlight. The flashlight turned out to be big and heavy …

I would say basic

May be.

It seems that it only appeared in 2019. Shortened version of IYP365.

I do not see a big problem. It is quite comfortable to hold. The middle body is thinner and this improves grip.

Or are you taking part in the famous Chinese radio game show where contestants can say anything but the words “yes”, “no” and “out of stock”?

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.
