Is the Nichia closer to 4000K or 5000K? I’d be interested in the AA version but only if it’s 5000K.

afaik the E02 is not an AA light, it is AAA
If the N219c is anything like what they put in the LAD, it is 4000k, not 5000k

move along, these are not the 5000k AA droids you’re looking for.. Wink

This light is now on the Manker website: http://www.mankerlight.com/manker-e02-keychain-aaa-light-220-lumen-cree-...

I was a little disappointed to see the description of the UI on the website does not include the dragon breath mode shown in the UI displayed in this review (step 5 in first post in User Interface section. But it would not shock me to find that the feature is actually there. Either way, I am looking forward to trying this light out.

I was just going by the user interface posted in your original review. In that picture, it says to enter dragon breath mode to turn the light off, and continue holding the switch down. See number 5 in the user interface portion of your review.

thanks, Matt

I have also ordered the light, so I was just curious if it had that feature. I will find out for sure when mine arrives as well Smile

sorry, I did not research that. I spent a couple moments looking at their website and it was not obvious to me, but I suspect China.

Maybe you can look into it and let us know Smile

There was a post in the other thread mentioning the upcoming AA version. I would prefer it to be cooler because 4000K is a bit warm for use at work.

I eventually went for the red one, never had a red light before.

Hmm, the heavy LED missalignment is a bit disappointing, the clip is too beefy and the red color is ugly… but from a practical use side it´s surely not a bad light. Does it fit into a normal 18650 headlamp headband? I guess not…

Arrived the unit Manker E02 Nichia, that I bought in Manker store (ebay), the stock package is nicest than the preproduction samples.
This is bought for me and not provided by manufacturer. The quality is the same than the production unit.
You can see that below the engrave Manker on the head, now insert the word “light”, nicest!

Thanks for the new pics. Would you say the Nichia’s color temp is 5000K (I’m hoping)?

I don’t know when he bought his from ebay, but it was before me, probably May 12. I bought mine May 13, and best I can tell it is somewhere between SHENZHEN and Los Angeles. It left SHENZHEN early morning May 19. Wondering if you could estimate when the journey to Los Angeles would be complete?

Great review, as always. Smile I haven’t seen any lumen output specs for the Nichia version. Are the lumen outputs comparable to the cree?

Hi; When I bought my unit, I think there are 2 previous orders in the site, I bought it on May 13, but perhaps I am the first arrived! Innocent
I am happy!!!!

This night (here), I will check lumens values for the nichia version.

Here my values for the nichia 219 version, and comparison with the XP-G3:

Is really a good result for the nichia.

The most important diference for me is that, with the nichia, all moonlight modes are below 1 lumen, with my pre-production sample (XP-G3) the 2 hightest modes of moonlight option offer over 1 lumen.
I do not know if all XP-G3 have option for lowest mode of more than 1 lumen or only the pre-production samples.

Yep. Really nice value for the Nichia. The chart also delights me again with the awesome mode spacing… Big Smile

Thanks Trevi! Interesting on the low lumen output. Based on my guess for a 30% reduction in lumens, I was thinking the low would be around 10 or so. The 7 lumens you measure is identical to the E01 on low mode. Guess I should not be surprised, why redesign when you have the circuit already.

One question about the moonlight mode measurements, 1.5 and 0.5. Are these for the brightest setting which can be programmed for both lights? Based on what you wrote I think so.

Sorry:
- for my XP-G3 pre-production, there are 21 modes elegibles for moonlight, I can only measure the 2 highest, both are over 1 lumen.
- With the nichia 219C, stock unit, there are 21 modes elegibles for moonlight and I can not measure any with my equipment, I think that the highest of this is less than 1 lumen.

I do not know if this diference is for stock / pre-production units or this diference is between XP-G3 / nichia units.

Thanks for the review Trevi_lux Smile

Here are some of my measurements :

Levels Lumens Range (minimum – maximum)
1 – 10 0 – 0.4
11-16 0.4 – 0.7
17-21 0.7 – 4

For example lvl 5/21 is between 0 and 0.3 lumens .

thanks for the clarification, and thanks again for a great review. It continues to whet my appetite for when my Nichia version arrives . . .
