Klarus P2A for $23.06 - P1A for $21

..yep, you guessed right. It's BG again. Are they on fire or what? Wink Whatever, I'm becoming their fanboy.. Smile

These lights haven't been this affordable since the Dinodirect deal last year (that's where I got mine from).

Klarus P2A for $23.06 (free shipping, coupon code ft1128)

As 2xAA and easy operation, these are good stocking stuffers..

Edit: Now also Klarus P1A for $21 (with coupon bgf128)

Ordered 3.

One for the house/loaner, and the other two, one in each car. Simple lights and can easily be used as loaners if you don’t want to lend any of your li-ion powered lights to friends.

AA lights are generally more expensive than li-ion, they need more complex/expensive electronics to boost the input voltage to LED Vf. The going price for the P2A/Jetbeam BA20 (same internals) is around $30-40, so $23 is a good deal.

It’s not, Klarus lights have much higher quality than most cheap xxxfire products.

I’d been looking for a suitable multi-aa torch to gift to a neighbour for his Birthday.
This is perfect.

Thanks OP!

thank you for the heads up. This is easily my most durable and daily used lights. I bought 1 last Feb and used it almost daily till now. Mostly as a night stand on the low setting. Must have been running for hundreds of hours by now…

How bright is bright enough...

Runtime VS Lumens...

I wish they had the single cell version for that price, as the BA10 is a superb flashlight as well. It would be nice to get the equivalent Klarus cheap enough to give as gifts.

My BA10 doesn’t see a lot of use these days, but it’s always there for me in my EDC pouch, ready to be tossed into the car or my luggage when I’m ready to get sh*t done. I know it’ll work when I need it to.

In order to find out which competitive light ( d, a, b, j stand for D25A, Archer, BA10/P1A, JR30 ) is brighter on which Eneloop cell ( h, l stand for resting voltages full 1.47V Eneloop vs. empty 1.24V Eneloop) i had to visually compare all possible pairs of combinations. How many pairings would i get in theory? Exactly, 28.

n =4*2 =8; k =2; n over k = n!/((n-k)!*k!)= 8!/((8-2)!*2!) =28

So i did the visual experiment, got 28 visual results (e.g. jh > bl means that JR30 on a full Eneloop is brighter than P1A on an empty Eneloop), and if my eyes were to discern brightness differences correctly in each of the 28 tests, then the computer would not return an error in the total evaluation.

As we can see, the computer didnt, which means that my set of 28 comparison test results were 100% consistent with each other. Perfect result. In more compact form, Out[3] can be written as a chain of inequalities:

dh > ah > dl > jh > bh = jl > al > bl

Or in words, D25A(on a full Eneloop) is brighter than Archer(full) which in turn is brighter than D25A(empty) which in turn is brighter than JR30(full) which in turn is brighter than P1A(full) which in turn is about as bright as JR30(empty) which in turn is brighter than Archer(empty) which in turn is brighter than P1A(empty). In other words, on a full Eneloop the Archer is one of the brightest (only second to the Eagletac which is the top brightest), and on a depleted Eneloop one of the dimmest (only second to the Cletus which is the dimmest).

i love my P1A. it's spec'ed with 150 Cletus ANSI lumens but as the above reviewer established, it is so much less bright than the JR30 R5 which is spec'ed at 120 ANSI lumens. even worse, as soon as Eneloop voltage goes down, the P1A brightness declines as well, whereas on the JR30 the brightness remains constant.

so don't buy the P1A for the claimed lumens. just saying Wink

*FMI* i got 4 i/o sh

I think it’s pretty good. For 21$ you do not buy anything better.

The P1A and BA10 can take 14500 li-ion cells, which turn it into a beast!

.....my Klarus P2A arrived yesterday from Bangggood. Exactly 14 days from order date to WA. State. I'd buy from them again without hesitation. In fact, I think my P2A needs some company....little brother, P1A ?

This is a very underrated series in my opinion. Both the 1xAA and 2xAA versions are simple, rugged, reliable and cheap!

Banggood site threw several prices at me before getting to $21. Even when coupon code was correct. Finally got it though.

Thanks the for link to best price on net! I needed some AA lights for SHTF. J)

How about a coupon code for the P1C? I never got around to buying the BC10 so I’d gladly pick up a P1C for $21 Smile

Hey thanks for the heads up, very seriously interested in picking up a few of these as stocking stuffers.

How is Banggood’s shipping nowadays? I know they’ve gotten a bad rap in the past, has anything changed?

They are as good / bad as other shops at the moment. They ship quite fast, but the bottle neck is in all Chinese posts (as they are inspecting packages against Li-ions)

My last shipments from them took:
- 4.5 weeks via CN post (the shipment sat about 3.5 weeks at Guangzou airport - waiting for inspection or something)
- less than 2 weeks via flytexpress (SE post)
