Couldn’t resist looking into the Best of 2019 category. Sofirn C01! Thumbs Up But you need to take out the AE link as it refers to the C01S.

2 Unheard : good call. Know the correct one still for sale? Or do you have a better one to replace it with? 


There aren’t any C01 for sale and there’s nothing compareable on the market, unfortunately.

I would like to see the Acebeam X65 mini under the list Best flashlights 2019 (MOST POPULAR MULTI CELL 18650 FLASHLIGHTS) 

The Acebeam X65 mini is:

- Compact and light weight in relation to performance

- It is an impressive thrower, at the same time it is clearly applicable even up close.

- Considering that four high quality batteries are normally included in the purchase, the price is also reasonable. 

 

Thanks for this giveaway!

Smallest single cell thrower (pocketable): Lumintop GT Mini should be replaced by Lumintop GT Mini with 18350 tube. Smile
Or, if modded lights count, BLF GTvn Micro.

Thanks for the GAW. Smile

Under best 18650 flashlights you should add the Emisar D4V2.

The Astrolux EC01 would belong in the 21700 flashlights category as well.

Maybe you could add a category for best 26650 flashlights and put the Astrolux FT03 there.

The Astrolux MF01S should also be there in the most popular multi cell 18650 flashlights.

Beat me to it. Should replace the D4, of course.

I also would not recommend a GT Mini over the D1S to anyone, but that’s just me.

Also, the Acebeam W30 (single 21700) out-throws all the other single-cell flashlights listed. In particular, it should be listed for best single-21700, though the price premium should be noted Wink

EDC Rotation: ZL SC62 | Jaxman E2L XP-G2 5A | Purple S2+ XPL-HI U6-3A | D4 w/ Luxeon V | RRT-01

Best  AA(14500) - should include the Wuben E05. Great little light that comes with a decent 14500 USB RECHARGABLE battery. When there is a sale, it is hard to beat.

Looking at your "Best LED Flashlight of 2019" list:

  • The Sofirn C01 reads "The Sofirn C01 has been the most popular AAA flashlight on Budgetlightforum of 2018" though it's a 2019 list
     
  • I would wager the Lumintop IYP07 is a better AAA light than the C01

For your "Best Tactical Flashlight 2019" list:

  • I think the Armytek Dobermann Pro is worth a mention as a no-frills 18650 light, and a worthwhile budget option for those looking at the Malkoff
  • The Nitecore P18 is worth a mention as the shortest light with a tail switch, momentary turbo and strobe, and a reflector
  • The Thrunite Archer has mode memory with no shortcuts to high, so I really wouldn't consider this a tactical light. Maybe the Armytek Partner A2 would be a better option?

Nice site! I think the emissar d4s/d4sv2 could use a spot in the 26650 section. Thanks for the giveaway!

Edit: brightest single single cell light.

IMHO … The awesome Olight M2T Warrior should be mentioned in your “Best Tactical” with a single lithium battery category.

https://1lumen.com/best-tactical-flashlights/#tactical-single-cell-lithi...

I own two of these true tactical lights and could not be more pleased with there performance.

Many thanks for the giveaway and wishing you much success with your website.

... Happy Landings ...

In the single 18650 category, I think you should add the Sofirn SC31B. This is a very solid light that could be handed to anyone without risk of misuse or abuse. It is not the highest performer, but it is rock solid and is an amazing “thrower” in a small tube light.

BTW, nice site, well organized.

EDC rotation:
FW1A, LH351D 4000k (second favorite)
FW3A, LH351D 3500k
FW3A, SST20 FD2 4000k
FW3A, Nichia 4000k sw40 r9080 (favorite light!)
FW3A, Cree XP-L Hi 5A3
Emisar D4V2, SST20 4000k
S2+, XM-L2 T6 4C

In best of 2019 (18650), I would say Emisar D4v2 and Sofirn SC31A/B shoould be considered.

They’re not quite in general availability yet (just started to process orders at Banggood), but the MF01 Mini looks like a really impressive 26650 light. It’s the only reason I have been able to hold back from buying a D4Sv2.

That said, the D4Sv2 is also a really nice 26650 light.

I also have to pile on the SC31 bandwagon. It’s damn near the perfect ‘decent’ light for someone who neither knows nor cares much about lights as a hobby, but needs one as a simple tool.

I also ordered one of those and am planning to give it away to my brother as he is somewhere between a muggle and a flashaholic (and I have a few 26650 cells that need to be used). Between the USB charging, high output, and attractive finish I think it’ll be a hit. I may end up keeping it though and think I should order another just in case. Probably the only thing I can find to dislike about it is all the different color AUX LEDs it has.. I prefer RGB or all the same/similar color over rainbow style AUX lighting.

Best EDC 21700 category should have the Convoy S12 added. Also the heading for that category reads “18650 EDC Flashlights” when it should read “21700 EDC Flashlights.”

Thanks for the giveaway and for your reviews. I have found your site quite useful in the past.

You guys keep missing the Category page.. if you just say 18650, I have literally NO idea on what page you mean, unless you use the word thrower, EDC, Tactical, Brightest, best of 2019. Almost all of those pages have a 18650 section. 

Here is the category list again: 

Brightest flashlights

Best throwers

Best Tactical

Best EDC

Best Rechargeable

Best of 2019
