Looks nice! Will be interested to see some reviewers runtime graphs.

No Li-ion low-voltage protection a bit concerning.

Jaxman, could you share pics of the pill? Is it solid or hollow?

It’s cute, it’s almost the same as the Skilhunt E3A.

Is the LED on it’s own separate MCPCB? Skilhunt has the driver and led all as one board, so reflowing a different LED would be difficult

This light looks like the same form factor, if it’s using a more traditional MCPCB setup it will be more friendly to modders.

From the product page, looks like driver is separate.

I even went to the same page. I guess I wasn’t paying attention. This looks good and all, but it could use more than one mode. 2 modes would be good, like the Sofirn C01S. Low to high no memory of course.

Hey, it’s a pill-head. Thumbs Up
Looks like it’s going to be my favourite non-zooming AAA light.

Looks like well designed! Thanks for taking the picture. I will order two to check them out Smile

As others pointed out, to have a low (1-5 lumen) mode would be a huge plus for me. Preferrably starting in low, then high. But high first is ok too.

The shipping fees are higher than that of the flashlight.

I so wish there was a reasonably cheap source of good 10mm drivers….MTN10DD costs $12 a piece + $16 shipping.

Just had my Zen-moment. A red one is coming my way for €8.38 with. free shipping.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

that really sounds terrible!
Aliexpress charge seller about 10% order amount, if charging 20% of buyer, it is really unthinkable.

Where do you see that?
I ordered two, shipping to France, $9.90 each, $19.80 total, free shipping…
Would that be a brexit side effect?

You might call it a Brexit side effect, but this will happen to us too. In due time.
My opinion is that UK thought: it has to be done some time in the future, why not now?
People can blame it on the Brexit, but UK was planning it anyway. Brexix or no Brexit.
It has to do with the VAT “lost” to EU/UK because sellers now sell stuff at a net price.
And think: I leave it up to your customs people to deal with the VAT.

This is the message you get for TAX

I get your point. Thanks. Thumbs Up
This came up on the forum elsewhere…
Off topic, so let’s leave it like that.

WRT Skilhunt E3A:

  • same diameter (14 mm) smile
  • marginally longer (65mm vs 60 mm) undecided
  • twice the weight (14g vs 7.5g) frown
  • can tail stand smile

I'd be interested if it had two modes, like mentioned by others above.

I'm wondering about the anodization quality, vs the E3A in its "best" version from this point of view (Slate blue), and vs its not so good other colors.

 

Ultrafire C3 2AA / Akoray K-106 / Nitecore LR10 / Manker E03H / Fenix HL10 / Zebralight H501R + H51W + H53c / DQG Hobi / Astrolux M01 / CooYoo Quantum Ti (lost) / BlackWater Kite Al / Emisar D4v2 (Nichia E21A) / Sofirn C01S / Skilhunt E3A

I wouldn’t call the 5 mm length difference marginal.
Also, the lanyard / keyring attachment is different. I like the Skilhunt much more.
But there’s another, much bigger difference that you’re missing: this one has a different head design with:
  • Separate LED and driver PCBs
  • Good thermal design

This means that:

  • With Jaxman you have a wider choice of LEDs that you can fit
  • Swapping these LEDs is easier
  • Good thermals enables making a good hot rod out of it

I haven’t bought a Skilhunt because I’m not very interested in lights that have a single board light engine with poor thermal path.
I think I will get this one, though I don’t want to be the first to buy it. And I also hope for a better deal later on. Wink

even powered by a AAA 1.5V battery, it will still be some hot 5min later.
If by an 10440,much hotter.
So I can not use thin shell for it. Then the weight will be a little big. 14g while in fact, we can not feel the weight of a 14g small light.
