Well, it wasn't easy but I managed to cram a 17mm FET+1 driver, charger circuit, micro USB port and constant On lighted electronic switch into this light.
I did consider making it a triple, maybe next time Wink
I really don't see the point of a lighted switch working only when the light is on so once I thought about changing that I just kept going..CRX XT01 LH351D 5000K - FET17+1 - 18350 - Lighted E-Sw - 1296lm.

I really like this wee light, it's like a smaller, harder, more sensible version of a D4.

I prefer the simpler operation of the D4v2 firmware as opposed to anduril and the lighted switch is great.

I don’t remember Xanes model names and when I saw the title, in my mind I got a budget plastic light CRXed all way out. Something wasn’t right with this picture.

This…is more in line with what I would normally expect from a CRX light.

Yeah this is a great little light in steel. Weighty but not too heavy because of it’s size.
The stock version isn’t too bad for the great price these can be bought for but the lighted switch only when switched on, rubber port cover and the XP-G3 had to go Big Smile
