Should there be another category for 2AAA lights like a penlight ?

http://www.edi-t.net/wordpress/?cat=76

I just love Edi-t's website...I need to be a shill for them.

 

    Same question about multiple AA lights .Although multiple triple A's usually means a bad 3 AAA light ..not a penlight .

 

   Just the opposite of what you think of when someone says  multiple AA lights

I love penlights...

 

Streamlight has a new model like a tactical stylus pro...very nice looking...

ProTac 2AAA

(Those 3x AAA lights you mentioned are my least favorite of any light type...)

Their site is great but like many other listings for flashlights, they leave out the most important specification . . . any listing that does not include emitter type, you can bet it's a Q5.  If it's an XM-L, they somehow take the extra trouble to say so.

Why do so many descriptions for an LED light, not describe what LED it has?

You've gotta hand it to Edi-t they do tend to do their own thing when it comes to lights rather than just clone, clone, clone.  Its a shame there aren't more budget manufacturers prepared to work that way.

I haves been EDCing my ST Stylus Pro every day at work and it has stood up well. For $19 it is a true budget light but with a big name warranty and quality.

I seem to recall a couple of years ago however they came out with several dive lights that failed miserable and they didn't stand by their customers.

I guess I shouldn't say any more as I can't recall all of the details and don't have links at hand but the owner came off as fairly sleazy.

They took a pounding on cpf for having a pic of an AW battery .that and cpf doesn't like anyone who isn't paying them .

The streamlight stylus pro for 19$ is about the cheapest I've heard it selling for ..i've seen one once and my untrained eye thought... hmm nice lil light ..

I think the answer is that they are a manufacture so it can be whatever they want it to be ..You notice they quote lots of lumen outputs for any given light and multiple drivers and batter options in some caeses too..

I just wonder since the sipiksk68 is such a hit ..why they have a edit t11 and a P4  with a 16340 and a 18650 but not a AA /14500zoomie .I've never seen their E4 ??

I know of two or three websites that sell EDI-T flashlights for under $20 (DealExtreme/Volumerates and LighTake.)  Am I missing any websites?
