Thought the only lockout is mechanical and requires the tailcap to be twisted loose 1/4 turn but I could be wrong

That is what I have been doing. It seems ridiculous. I’m thinking I should have bought a Zebralight.

Zebralight doesn’t have electronic lockout either if that’s an important feature to you.

Frankly I only trust e-lock as a sort of “standby” anyway, if a light is going in my bag the tail is unscrewed or the cell is removed if the former doesn’t lock it.

I am using it as my EDC carry with the pocket clip. I have been unscrewing the tail 1/4 turn. Every time I remove it from my pocket for use, I have to tighten the base and untighten once returned to my pants.
I can’t imagine it is designed to be used this way?

For what it’s worth I have a Wizard Nichia Pro and it has never turned on in my pocket thankfully. Have it in the same pocket as my phone and no issues in the past few months

IMHO unlocking electronically is no faster or any less annoying. I carry both a Wizard and H600 frequently and don’t lock either out.

You guys must value your balls a lot less than I do.
I recently had an O’Light Warrior turn on in my pants and it burned a hole in them. The ArmyTek is much more powerful.
I think that the best use for this is as a headlight, and not as an edc pocket carry then…

I feel like triple-clicking the Wizard would be unlikely for me. Zebras have recessed switches and mine are set to double-click for high/turbo so same deal.

I never turn off either directly from the highest mode so it won’t be saved to memory.

If you don't want to twist loose the cap 1/4 turn let your last setting at Firefly 1 which is good for 200 days ( more than six months ). When you take your Wizard out of your pocket you have only to click twice to have let say Main 3 at 370 lumens ( the last setting you used ).

 

I really don't consider having my Wizard with me in me in any of my pockets ( to big and to heavy, this is not a key chain flashlight ) and I have it with me for the last five years all day long at hand. I use the Prime C2 holster and had it on my belt. I use to be a Policeman in Montreal QC Canada and it is less heavy than a revolver or a pistol, I feel nothing at all and my Wizard is there ready to be used with the head band at hand not to far or again in a small pouch on my belt.

 

Because the Wizard C2 Pro v4 XHP50.2 has a larger and more sensitive ON/OFF switch, this multi-flashlight is more likely to go ON inadvertently. Remember the trick : Firefly 1 and you are in business !

Will never be caught in the dark... always my ArmyTek Wizard C2 Pro v4 XHP50.2 Multi-Flashlight with me.

Does anyone know if the new and faster charger works with all Armytek lights that have the older magnetic charging system?

Yes for sure ! Some charger let you charge at let say .25 A, .50 A and 1.0 A ( 250 mA, 500 mA and 1 000 mA ).

Suppose the older magnetic USB cable charge at 500 mA and the new one at 1,000 mA there is no problem at all. This new USB cable will charge the batterie inside any Armytek flashlight faster and that's all.
