Keychains similar to DQG Tiny AA/AAA

After a long search about what I like the most, I decided the keychains with 1xAAA/AA are what I would like to have. But especially I like the DQG Tiny AA. I’m living in Spain and seems hard to find, I barely found on Banggood for 45€ and I see that price very high. Also, I saw it at Fasttech but I don’t know if this company is in the US and it will be very expensive to ship to Spain.

Do you know other alternatives similar to that DQG, I mean similar in that color, not has to be the same material. And similar in the 1xAA/AAA battery and lumens.

There is nothing close to DQG size.
There was some clone long time ago but is not available nowadays anyway.

Does exist something just like the DQG Tiny? I mean i’m looking some keychain with concrete specifications.

·1 AA or AAA
·At least 2 modes, and the lowest mode with at least 20-30lm and the seconds more than 120lm
·The same gray/metal color as the DQG or at least black but anodized material.
·Maximum 7cm length

I was looking that but seems hard to buy from Spain. I see is only in Fasttech and never bought from that website. But seems interesting because is also the DQG Tiny AA.

This is my newest favorite and just switched to it on my key EDC. Very tiny. Very light. Very smooth threads. Very pleasant neutral XPG2 with a tint just slightly warmer than my M61NL.

Not sure exactly what you are really expecting… There are quite a few options in AA/AAA lights.

How about those:

Sofirn SC01SAAA only (no 10440), twisty, high CRI, less then 10 euros.
Lumintop Tool AA and AAA – The AA version can be used with a flat/magnetic tail cap and becomes a twisty, can take 14500, very good IMO – except for tint, although there has been a high CRI variant recently – look for Tool AA 2.0.

By the way, FastTech is a chinese company, same as BG, AE, GB… and will ship free (almost) to EU. Takes about two weeks usually. Placed many orders with them and they are reliable.

I don’t write in Spanish because here the rule is in English.
If you repeat questions in ForoLinternas, I won’t have to use an online translator.
FastTech is a chinese shop, it accepts PayPal and it’s a reliable site. I buy from them often.

Well, finally I decided with the Nitecore Tiki. Don’t like the Sofirn or Lumintop because of their length.

I know little English but I use the Chrome extension called Grammarly to correct some words.

Oh, I thought this was all about AA/AAA lights. I would have recommended the Nitecore Tip2. I carry it on my keychain, I really like it. It’s got SST-20’s in it now.

Enjoy your Tiki, I’m sure it will serve you well.

Nice, I’m surprised to see it’s still available. Smile
Though it’s sad it’s only ebay, can’t find it anywhere else.

And it’s about it. But hard to find for sale some flashlights and I’m looking specific flashlight with some features I want but it’s hard to find. So, I saw good reviews and opinions about Tiki and I liked it.

I see that DQG Tiny on Fasttech. But what leaves me thinking about if I buy or not, is its weight. People say could be annoying.

I was going to get one from FastTech. They are notorious for having products listed for sale that aren’t in stock. I emailed them to see if it was in stock and it wasn’t. Glad I emailed them before I paid for it. I contacted George of DQG a few months ago. He had some NW Tiny AA but it was almost impossible for him to get it shipped out of Hong Kong. I haven’t tried to contact him recently. His shipping problems may be getting back to normal. Might want to give him a shout if you are still interested. He still had some Tiny 18650’s and Slim AA’s too. That was two months ago though.
