Hi Vihru.

The Jac60 is a really cheap flashlight, hm, nice for this price. Maybe also a good modding host!

Have a look at the Olight M2X-UT Javelot Wink

@Vihru,

Take a look at ThorFire C8 at Amazon ($21.99):

Or, if you don’t mind no mode memory, it’s cheaper ($16.99) at Banggood:

(Don’t know about shipping charges to Finland.)

This :D. But probably too expensive.
If you’re going with the C8 format, look at the convoy C8. Awesome quality with a good price.

Neither in stock form will throw better than your Jacob A60. It’s about 55kcd (A60) vs 25kcd (C8).

IMO, they are all about the same. The next step up is YEZL Y3 mentioned above. Wait for it to go on sale. (Make sure it comes with 18650 adapter.)

Yezl at Gearbest for $24.99 using code YEZLCM

Gearbest has been fine for me—I think because I’ve kept orders to
single product type per order.
