Remarks:
(*1) Minimum price that:

  • I’ve seen reported, not necessarily the lowest ever
  • Contains shipping

(*2) I calculate volume as volume of a cyllinder where the light fits. I think that there are better volume metrics (I think measuring convex hull would be optimal) – but this one won because it’s easy for me to calculate.
(*3) I assume the following cells are used and take HKJ capacity measurements:

  • for Folomov Powerbank cell there are no data, I assume it’s close to Panasonic NCR18650B
  • for 18650 – Samsung INR18650-35E
  • for 21700 – Sanyo NCR21700A
  • for 26650 – PLB INR26650-55A (rewrapped as Shockli 5500 mAh and others)

(*4) Older lights have Micro USB instead of Type C
(*5) Estimated from mAh

Modern power banks are more efficient and have higher capacities. I would rather that they skip the power bank feature and reduce cost to customers.

Wow thanks, I’ve been looking for such a list. Some more:
Lantern light, originally on Kickstarter https://lanternlight.ca
Also ZeroHour XD and XR, but they’re out of production https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/prizmlite/zerohour-modular-tactical...

You missed the Rofis MR50, and there’s little value counting the DQG tiny when hundreds of lights could use that cell.

Thanks for the responses. I added some lights already and will add the others shortly. Smile

I wondered about it as well. Well, not whether to list DQG but what to do about the hundreds of other lights.

As to DQG with Folomov cell:
It’s the smallest and lightest flashlight-powerbank on the market. I am sure it deserves a mention.
Also the mere existence of Folomov cell is significant and deserves a mention in this thread.

As to others:
I’m not sure. The cell is the whole point really, the light around it is just an addition. There are other lights that I’m tempted to list but I feel it would clutter the table while not adding much value.

They don’t have higher capacity per cell. Lower or same.
Efficiency? I wish reviewers were able to measure that…

Anyway: if one wants to carry both a flashlight and a powerbank – a combo is typically going to provide more bang for the size / weight than 2 separate items, regardless of what separate items you choose. It may not be true for very high capacity (unless you’re willing to carry spare cells and switch them) but for lower energy needs – a combo wins.

If you don’t want the cost – there are still many options around…actually when I consider lights that are the most interesting to me – none of the first class ones comes with a powerbank or even with Folomov powerbank-cell compatibility.

Do powerbank/handwarmer/LED Flashlights count?

Ewarmer hand warmer/power bank/LED flashlight

MrsRants got a lot of service from one of these this winter.

The hand warmer is very effective and the flashlight is serviceable.

I’m not really sure if I should list unavailable lights.
On one hand – they may still be available second hand. But proabably very hard to get.
On the other hand they may pollute the list.

I already added one that seems unavailable. But I didn’t expect the list to grow this much so fast. Smile
Should I keep adding unavailable lights or maybe it would be better to remove that Vollsion?

And now…I have doubts. They don’t list some basic info like how many lumens does it have. Which makes me think that the makers were focused on “warmer” rather than on “flashlight”.
If I include items where “flashlight” is not a major part of the whole – I’ll end up listing all OTG phones and other unrelated stuff.
Maybe the rule for inclusion should be:
  • it’s a powerbank and
  • it’s a good flashlight

So before I edd ewarmer – MyRants, do you think it’s a good flashlight?

OK, I added all of the abouve except for Ewarmer that I’m not sure if I should list.
That makes 30 lights!
I see about 18 more here:

I have to say: wow, the market is much richer than I thought.

Agro,

No, it is not a good flashlight.  It is serviceable, i.e., it will help you not trip over a curb or step on a cat.

The emphasis is definitely on the hand warmer/power bank with an afterthought flashlight.

Have JKK36. XHP70.2 3000k. 3-18650=10.2A.
Overpaid 5 bucks. Although the 3000k temp is worth it.
Also Rofis MR70 XHP70.2. 1-26650=5500mAh. Not enough for a powerbank with a 70.2.

Lighting up the world one flashlight at a time.

Except…

Initially I thought I would include all kinds of lights. Lanterns, bike lights, whatever. But I’m overwhelmed by the flashlights alone, I have a feeling that adding other stuff would clutter the list.
But thanks for the suggestion anyway. Smile

I split the list into small/big/headlamp.
Honestly I’d rather remove headlamps if not for that awesome acebeam.

Anyway, it opens the option to add more kinds later. “Lanterns”? “Other”?….
But I’d like to emphasize the word “later”. I’d rather finish flashlights first and there’s still a lot of work with them.
