I personally liked the old logo, the new one is bland and doesn’t stand out in the world of lights at least it doesn’t for me.

If I’m reading this right it looks like lumintop filed for a trademark in 2015 and the Energizer Bunny filed in opposition. It looks like lumintop did not get the trademark but the bunny kept hopping. And then in May of 2019 the Energizer Bunny filed a trademark infringement. And it looks like lumintop just ignored it. The Energizer Bunny won by default in September 2019. Apparently lumintop referenced the energizer brand in some of their ads. That was clearly a mistake.

Too bad they removed it. That was the only really nice thing for Lumintop flashlights.

Somehow, I wasn’t touched by most of their designs (aside from any BLF inspired designs, of course – but I could not afford those “big guys” anyway) – same applies now for their new logo.

When the bunny was recently added to the tail switch of the FW, opinions varied.

Not to brag or anything, but I'm kind of a big deal to my flashlights.

RIP lil bunny. I hope they can incorporate it in other ways or make it an unofficial mascot.

Ah, I thought you were speculating above, but now that I do a search, I see there really was a lawsuit, and Lumintop lost:

Well F energizer. They stole the mascot and sue companies that don’t even sell batteries. Energizer doesn’t even put the bunny on the batteries themselves. To add to that, nobody asked the bunnies who they support.

I still wanted to order the light that came with the little bunny figures. Was it the geek?
