Comparable Budget option for Olight Seeker 2?

I have dropped from the vicious cirle for a while.
I was thinking that there must be other options but soon noticed – can´t name any out from my memory… hmm…

So: dock charging is NOT needed. 21700 or 18650.
Triple LED, side switch preferred but not mandatory…

Convoy S12. Not the same output but similar size and more throw/lm.

21700 FW3A is coming soon too.

Astrolux EC01 XHP 50.2 3.0 Volt 21700 / 18650 with ramping, 3000 lm. Same length. $25.

Mezzol X8R-L is another affordable 21700 light with XHP 70.2, it is 2 cm longer than Seeker.

For codes go to M4DM4X or if you are fast X8R-L GB quits 3. October $34.

If you’re searching for a 21700 side switch light I can not recommend the sub $25 FF E01 highly enough! Absolutely fantastic light, it’s my go to every night for dog walks in the park (mixed woods and open fields walking). Single emitter TIR with great beam useful for all situations and still pumps out ~1800Lm.
Not as high of lumen output as the seeker2 but a more useful beam for nearly every purpose.

Waiting for the FW3A 21700 for sure at least for myself but have to see other options also.
(got two FW3A´s myself, they are great.)

A Friend asked me to provide similar flashlights, he was looking for a discounted Olight (at 120€)…

Good suggestion, Thanks! Smile

…..

I have to agree. This is quite a nice light at a nice price – AND it’s Anduril powered!

C8F is really the closest thing compared and is cheap.

...where Frugal meets with Flashlight!

This.
Owning a Seeker 2 Pro, plus these, the beam pattern falls between the C8F and the EC01.
