Xeno E03 XM-L2

I had a Xeno E03 XM-L2. Loved it, and then promptly lost it. :_(

I was thinking about getting another one, but waiting for the XM-L2 – now it looks like EDCPlus has them. Smile

Anyone have any feedback on the new version?

I have one and love it. My first one was a neutral white XP-G R5, the XM-L2 U2 was added as soon as they came out. XM-L2 U2 cool white has a beautiful beam and color, all white no red, green or purple tint. Nice even on 1.5v.

Thanks for the input, but now I have to decide which one. I’m leaning towards the sheer output of the XM-L2 and saving the 219 until a later stage of my flashaholism.

+1 on the e03’s. Don’t have the XML2 but I’ve had the v2 XML NW for over a year and it’s my #1 EDC light. I’m running it on an AW 14500 and it’s a rocket.

While on the way home from a restaurant the other day I realized my e03 wasn’t in my pocket, man what a bad feeling! When I got home I called the restaurant (they were already closed and cleaning up) I asked them to look for the light, the guy took my number and said they’ll call me if they find it. I thought shuuure they will! Was also thinking another customer may have picked it up, the place was packed. I was sooo bummed. So I promptly went on EDC.com and started looking at a replacement and found the new XML2’s with higher output and began to decide on which one I would get.

A little while later it hit me, I slightly remember putting it somewhere in the car while it was still light out, hoping it was true I ran out to the car and sure enough it was in there clipped to a canvas bag. It’s hard to explain how happy I was at that moment, I felt “whole” again!

If this helps anyone a LumaPower IncenDio clip fits the e03 perfectly between the body and tailcap. Got my clips directly from Lumapower/Jacky Tsang, I also swapped out the green switch cap with a black fenix one.

. Here’s a picture I took of my E03 with Lumapower IncenDio clip:

I’m going to get a new XML2 for a back up, wish I could find a deep carry style clip (like on the Olight S20 for example) but one that fits between the body and tailcap. I don’t really like the “clip on” clips.

I have been thinking on getting one of these, but the lack of a pocket clip is a real problem.I always wear an EDC light clipped to my left pocket.Where did you find a clip for these?Are there any other clips that work for these?-Rick

I have the new Xeno E03 XM-L2 and the older XM-L. The L2 is only slightly brighter shinning at a while wall. The new one has hidden strobe, sos, and beacon modes. Also has the updated more reliable switch. (although I've never had any problems with the old one)

Just email them, it’s the washer style clip (not the wire style)

I’ve seen some other clips that will fit, but all were clip on and were no where near as nice and sturdy as this one.

I own the old XM-L version 3 and is my favorite EDC. It fits well in my pocket and I kinda feel “under dressed” when I forget to bring it. Silly

I must have the new XM-L2!

Is there any retailer who has the XM-L2 cool white version of the E03 still available?

That doesn’t say it’s a XM-L2 U2, but a XM-L U2.

yes … pink… lol

its not that bad – no where near the girly pink of my wifes L3 xpg2 she keeps in her purse… if they had any black in stock i would have returned and exchanged it for a black one… but since they are out of stock it seems, and these are a limited edition exclusive to edc+, i am keeping the reddish/pink lol.
