Alternatives to Lumintop tool

I lost my lumintop tool keychain flashlight, and I’d like to know if there are any other similar flashlights out there.
What I like about tool: AAA battery, button action (not twist), high CRI led, few modes (single on/off mode would be even better).

I’d buy the tool again but can’t find the copper version anywhere at a reasonable price

Hey!
3 lights come to my mind in the AAA range:
1) Olight I3T EOS – 2 modes, forward clicky switch (for momentary ON feature), Cool White emitter
2) BLF-348 – 1 mode, High CRI, Neutral White
3) Folomov C1- Tail E-switch, several output levels, High CRI

But I’m sure there are other options out there Thumbs Up

Look for a vipon sale for 6bux a pop or so, load up.

 

Hmm, scratch the high-cri part, though.

Yup, different LED, cool white! If you like better colour rendition it would be better to order one of the others, with Nichia led inside!

I’m gonna have to get me one of those BLF 348’s. Here a lot of good things about them. I recently received a Wuben E01 and it is very similar to the tool. Nice light – especially after I added the DC-Fix.

copper tool

https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-copper-aaa-pocket-flashlight
uses 219c and eSwitch, not 219b w rubber clicky

this titanium version claims to use 219b, I think it might be true, but have not confirmed

I do like the folomov LED very much, middle, but to turn off I have to press and hold, I hate the UI.. Im carrying one though, because it is so small, and powerful

the Tool UI is better, click on, click off, and it has a keyring attachment, the Folomov does not. I dont mind, cause I like my light by itself, not on my keys.. ymmv

What’s the one next to the Fenix?
The one in the middle looks awesome, but if the UI sucks and accepts only rechargeable battery, it’s off my list.

it is a twisty w 3 modes and the LED on the latest model is 219c,
mode sequence is MLH, same sequence as the Ti Tool I linked above

fwiw the Massdrop Copper Tool is LMH
