I have two of these on the way, the one pictured and one aluminum version too. I actually liked the look of it, but I have better options for portable recharging. What I liked about it is the 18650 cell is user replaceable and I believe it has a high and low light mode.

I’m surprised to see so few of these flashlights that also pack the power bank function.
Usually, when you need a flashlight, you are away from civilization. So you also need a power bank. I’m currently looking to buy one but I found only two products.

My English isn’t perfect but I’m trying to improve it. If you see something that doesn’t sound right or is just plain wrong, please feel free to point it out! Smile

I have bought a DIY kit from kaidomain and put a xml2s6 in it instead of the generic 1W LED which was in the kit along with a Panasonic 18650, I guess that is a bit overkill but I wanted to have it to fit my needs perfectly.

I spotted a clone at banggood already assembled(of course with cheap led and battery) for 5$…I was tempted to buy another but didn’t because the one I build works so perfectly for my needs and the price and modding ability is tempting.
