TrustFire Mini 08 Electronic Tail Switch

Some older members will remember the Mini-01 which was quite popular at the time and even more so with the BLF Mini-01 driver version that was available. I carried a 02 on my keys for a while and had a modded Mini-01 and gifted some.

Originally a head twisty 16340 light with three modes driver and built in USB charging I saw some potential to make this better.

I made the Mini-07 into a 10180 tail clicky light by removing the USB charging unit and installing a 10mm Omten clicky switch.

The driver was three mode, high, low and strobe Facepalm and I broke it trying to fix it so it is now just a single mode.

To make use of the tiny micro USB charger circuit I removed from the Mini 07 I made this stainless steel charger unit:

Very impressive job on the tailswitches. You are amazing CRX!

I’d rather use my flashlight around the house than turn on the lights.
