hmm, I can not see what this light adds to what is there already (olightA3ss(no blinkies, tailstands), Uf-T1(smaller, tailstands), DQGtinyAAA(smaller, tailstands), even Bronte has one already. If it only had a clicky switch.....

So there's two options that can make it attractive: 1) the price, under 14 dollars, 2) the brilliant UI that the BLF-edition is going to have Smile

I agree with djozz. Here’s a couple of ideas/options to make it more attractive:

- XML2
- XPG2
- NICHIA 219
- Programmable driver
- Low price ( :bigsmile: )

There is one reason I dont own a flashlight with a Nichia led is because the better half reads this forum and she may get jealous as members on this forum think it is so good thanks mainly to OL.

Looks good. High-CRI Nichia 219 would be a must-buy if the price was good.

Thread title says 14500/AA but ops post says 10440/AAA – what gives??

This is a nice enough looking light, but can’t see the point in what it offers over the BLF Mini tbh. Drive this hard and you’ll only end up with shockingly crap runtimes and huge heat.

The Trustfire Z8 has been sold for $11-14 before and would seem to be more torch than this one.

Not saying I hate – I don’t. But can’t say I’d be all that excited about it either.

Would have to agree.

There are lots of good AA lights around already. Would be pretty tough to make a case for another one.

Dudes… Trustfire gave Rey a hard time even when they only have to install Cree NW last time. BLF A8 – remember? Two months of yada yada – cannot source, not enough stock, need to order MOQ et al.

And they can’t even make this simple “bin change” right as some claimed NW are not quite NW at all.

Now, imagine how TF would deal with a whole new Nichia 219 which it does not have experience with. Who’s to know they would even source the right one – there are lots of Nichia’s emitter.

No, I won’t trust TF for the job.

sorry, it's 10440/AAA.

 

@Pulsar13

Me too, I don't think they even know what is a Nichia 219.

So buy two. She’s paying for them anyway.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Rey, do you think Tank007 or Xeno might be interested to make a BLF light? Just an idea.

Can it use both types, 10440 and AAA? What is output on each type?

Interesting. More realistic than nichia Rey?

Like the idea of superlow mode. Could be a useful light with superlow + hi only. Kinda like the original Ti… Maybe 0.5 / 60 lumen (on NiMh).

I just ordered one from Aurabuy.com
http://www.aurabuy.com/trustfire-mini-03-cree-xp-g-r5-3-mode-200lm-white...

This is not my first order at aurabuy. They’re fast shippers, and have served me well in my previous orders.
Looking forward to take a play with this beauty! :bigsmile: Review coming!

Does this start in a default mode or does it always go to next mode?

i would definitely be interested if it had a NICHIA 219 or good NW XP-G2, and no blinkies, and 4 modes, (Moonlight, Low, Med, High) and able to run off both AAA or 10440s, and stil below 15 bucks. :bigsmile:

@Horst Horstmann,

if using eneloop only, does the performance satisfying for a small light?
the lens is plastic or glass?
does the finish easily scratched?

thanks before for many questions Silly
