I will likely end up getting but $15 is a bit too much for a small light.

So, this light (3rd clone) is cheaper than the:
a) Rovyvon Aurora (the originals)
b) Nitecore Tiki (1st clone)
c) Jetbeam Mini One (2nd clone)

It has 300 lumens, 4 different leds, USB rechargeability, it has a GITD version, and it is even cheaper than other numerous keychain lights with good quality, and that price is “too much”?

Sorry, I don’t understand that statement.

BTW, so far I am not in for this GB, despite I think some information could be added, such as the colour temperature of the main LED.

Do the color bodies glow in the dark also? Same brightness as the glow in the dark one shown?

ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ I can always be wrong, probably 75% of the time.

Interested.

Q: Spec says LiPo battery. Is this correct? What is the expected life of the battery? My experience with small RC planes and the like. Small LiPos have a limited life then swell up and massively reduce performance until they are no good at all.

If the battery is not removable or is proprietary, no sale from me. This only serves to significantly reduce the value of your investment.

  1. Most probably.
  2. Let me find out if they have a figure for battery life cycle.
  3. And also if the are able to provide spare battery for DIY replacement.

10 clicks to lock and unlock kills the deal for me. Sad

There is absolutely no reason to make a flashlight without a removable battery other than controlled obsolescence.

I disagree with this.
What makes this style of light possible is the use of a pouch cells.
Advanced users will be able to replace them.
And you definitely don’t want regular users to handle them.
OK, they could in principle design an enclosure for the cell.
But then the light would be larger and very few users would buy a proprietary spare like this anyway.

I thought a pouch cell was flat like a pillow:
Would not you have to crack the case open top get it out? Where would you get a replacement? Are they for sale anywhere?

i like this operation. Thumbs Up

wish it was a bit more like the tiki,
1 click no action
double klick to activate to moon.
but it is still way better than the lockout of the jetbeam mini-one

Pouch cell is any cell with soft enclosure. They can be flat or they can be thick.

Would not you have to crack the case open top get it out? I depends on how it’s built. In Rovyvon f.e. you can open the body without damaging it.

Where to get replacement? As usually, in China. They are less standardized then cylindrical cells, so getting the perfect size is harder though. F.e. 501030 cell as used in the 1st gen rovyvons can be found here.
Naturally you may also ask the manufacturer but they are unlikely to keep stock of fresh cells after several years (when your original cell wears down).
