Angle head flashlight

I've searched and can't locate anythig. But can anyone recomend a angle headed flashlight. I'd preffer 1AA but 2AA or a AAA cell would be good too. Thanks for any help you can give.

Welcome Nightscoool. good to have you here.

 

The Trustfire Z1 but it is CR123 only. Unless you count the Zebralight headlamps which are angle head - but not adjustable angle. They are hardly budget items though.

This is the cheapest one

Another non-budget item - The Fenix MC10

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Hey there nightscoool, thanks for joing BLF, welcome!

Hmmm, it seems to me I did see one of these somewhere, and it was relatively cheap too. I think it was a 3xAAA model. Sorry, I can't remember for the life of me where it was.

I am glad to be here. My wallet may not be as I've all ready spent more than I should on some of the lights I've seen here. But that's what is so cool about it I'm getting a great bang for my buck.

 

Asfor the Z1, that's the light that got me thinking about a AA cell similar to it. But thanks for the quick answeers.

Hi nightscool, I'm glad you're enjoying it here. Please feel free to contribute your knowledge here too as you go about using your new lights!

Sorry that I can't give you better suggestions on this particular topic, it's not a common feature of the chinese budget lights.

Pretty sure you have found it by yourself but just in case. Seems cheap, no idea how they perform tho.

Even if Don says, that it is a poor copy of a Zebralight:

The UltraFire UF-H2B 

It was discussed HERE.

I'd forgotten about that one. It's not that it is a poor copy of the Zebralight, it is that it is far too expensive for what it offers. If it were $20 I'd buy one myself, but not at $32.

 

I'd also forgotten the ITP H01 which is cheaper than the Ultrafire though it is AAA instead of AA. If you want more of a beam to a headlamp, this is probably a good bet.

Thanks for the help guys. That ITP looks real good for my goal. I was only wanting AA to keep the battery cost down but AAA couls work just as well.

 

Again thak you all

I use Firefox with the WOT (Web-Of-Trust) add-on. The link gives me a orange alert on WOT.

There are other good reasons for avoiding that outfit - their spamming forums being one of them.

Or maybe this?

This looks just like the Fenix MC10 but much cheaper.  Anyone have experience purchasing from Eazzy Deal?

EDIT:  I just read OxyMoron's review of Eazzy Deal so I guess they are ok.

I've always liked the Fenix MC10 but it's a bit too expensive.  This U1 from eazzydeal on the other hand looks just like the mc10 but is cheaper plus it has a magnetic bottom.  What to do....what to do. Undecided
