fwiw, there is a BOGUS listing on amazon for the original RRT-01
It is verified NOT for the original RRT-01..
Do NOT Buy

Jetbeam told me 2020 battery tube extensions do not fit 2019 models (not verified).

2012 (I took these measurements)
Length: 81mm
Head Size: 22.7m
Weight: 47.1g (Exclude Battery)
detailed modding supplies list for the Original 2012 model

2019 (specs not verified)
Length: 81mm
Head Size: 25.7m
Weight: 75.2g (Exclude Battery)

2020 (specs not verified)
Length: 91mm
Head Size: 25.7m
Weight: 75.2g (Exclude Battery)

I sent a message via Amazon asking if they are willing to supply a coupon code to help clear out their “old inventory”. They have decent storefront ratings so we’ll see. I will update

Be careful, I ordered one from them and what they sent was the 2019 model. (on the way back to Amazon)

Did you inform amazon they’re showing a pic of the older model and sending newer models. Bait and switch. They need to change their pic.

Yes, the company has both models listed. I gave amazon both listings and what the company did.

Probably why they never responded to me since I specifically said old inventory. Thanks for taking one for the team

contactcr and moderator007, thank you also for trying to help us get a deal

for those interested, the australian source still has stock.. even though its kind of expensive with shipping.. this is a legitimate vendor, I have done several group buys from:

https://www.aushunteronline.com.au/spotlights/torches-accessories/jetbea...

anyone can use that link to buy direct..

I love mine, but I think people have moved on to Anduril.. and do not appreciate how much “better” (for me) the RRT-01 UI is, than ANY light with a button.. yeah, call me biased.. lol

jon_slider, I love the rotaries. Thank you for introducing me and helping me purchase many of them, including some quite lovely grails!

That said, I love Anduril also. I think it has been very well thought through and developed and I find it quite addictive!

I am a fan of both rotaries and Anduril. They are my favourite UIs.

Seems that they may have finally pulled the old listing. I did an open search on the Jetbeam RRT-01 and the old one never came up. When I followed the earlier link jon_slider provided ABOVE, it said “currently unavailable.”

I wish the original wasn’t so pricey relative to what the FW3A is going for these days. I’m glad I have an original RRT-01, but not likely to get another… except as used from someone down the road, at a decent price. Or, might go for a triple once I’ve got my light budget back up.

Is the low really 1 lumen or is that a mistake?

good question, I do not know anyone that has tested the 2020 model yet

the 219 RRT-01 description also says 1 lumen, but it actually fades down to less than 0.01…

also waiting for confirmation from buyers who own both, that the 2020 AA and 18650 adapters, do not fit the 2019 RRT-01.

The 2020 RRT-01 is the only presently available Rotary, capable of using AA.

I was going based off the box but Liquidretro tested the 2019 version and also said it had sublemen levels even though the box says 1 lumen.

Unless I’m missing something, it doesn’t look like this is AA compatible. Was there something that used to say it was?

Couldn’t you still use 14500 with an adapter though? I think one of the pics show a 14500 battery.

Bummer that there’s no trit slots any longer. Facepalm Unless… are those “slots” along that rear switch guard similar to the NovaTac Peu trit slotted bezel where size is compatible with an available trit vial size?

Could that hole in the control ring be a trit slot?

Looks like Neal got some of the new ones including a gross factory triple with aux LEDs (rrt03) and strobes. Doesn’t have variable control ring it seems so definitely do not buy that one.

While yes, if it takes 18500 it can definitely take 14500, not sure why you’d want to throw a sleeve on it. The flashlight isn’t getting any skinnier…

Edit- i should’ve read on snd seen all of this extensive discussion on the very same topic! But here’s what i was about to say:

Neal at neals gadgets just got newest rrt01 in stock snd started shipping this week.

New model has nichia emitter option, tail switch snd has battery tube extensions available that accommodate 18500 snd 650!

Id been looking, hopefully they’ll be as good as the previous models.
