K2 adopts the same concept and form factor but it is not 1-to-1 clone imo. If you look on the bright side, healthy competition could bring out people’s creativity, and produce more innovative products to meet our ever growing demand for powerful flashlights.

It can be spun anyway you want, it’s still the same form factor and a copy of someone else’s product.

Healthy competition? Maybe.

Trying to capitalize on another’s success on a great design?

Absolutely.


Yeah, at least my 4 functionally identical titanium 10180-with-micro-usb lights all look distinctly different.

 Each version gets a little better ...and then does something worse .Forward three steps and backward 2 . The upside to rovy von being expensive was maybe they'd get it right some day . But  screwing around with XPG-3 emitters, PWM and not low enough moon modes means the competition will soon catch up.

BTW, I know this is slightly offtopic, I hope you don’t mind freeme, but was there discussion of the JetBeam branded clone on BLF already?

I would feel sad about it but I’ve had horrific luck with my RovyVon flashlights. I’ve had 3 of them and 2 have lasted only a couple months before they stopped charging. I did get one swapped out under warranty but the replacement similarly failed. I could swap them out again but in the end due to their unreliability I’ve just stopped using them altogether.

To be fair, I don’t know if the clones are any better. I just picked up a jetbeam as a replacement and I’ll see how it lasts. Hopefully it’s not just an issue inherent to these tiny batteries.

Unheard of. Probably it is the shell is full aluminum?

Nitecore already developed a "clone" back in 2020.

I suspect so. All my 10180 batteries have pretty short lifespan. sealed

The price looks good to me. I’m still curious about UI details.

The price is very reasonable.

I'm not interested, yet, but I do like the price.

(I'll wait for more details first.)
