I think they all are the same, have a look at the Lumintop EDC05 too

Be sure to check the threads talking about the UT01, it seems that the failure rate on the switch for the newer batches is very high.

The EDC05 will also accommodate protected cells whereas the others are too short.

Wow! That EDC05 sounds like a winner! Wonder what the color temps are for the CW and NW versions?

I’ve got my UT01 around Oct/Nov. I’ve been EDC since with zero issues.

I just pulled the trigger on two EDC05 cold whites.

Thanks for the recommendations guys. I bet the Zebra is a great light but not when I can have two EDC05 for nearly the same price with shipping. $70.00 just seems too steep for one EDC.

Has there been any word around Utorch fixing their issues? At $10 with coupon I’d like to pick one up, but not if the switch is going to break on me.
