So here is a pic of size comparisons. The E07x is the exact same size as the Lumintop X9L sbt90.2 light. The head is like 1mm smaller, but they are almost an exact match, in case anyone has that and wants to know what itd be like to carry. The picture makes them look a lot different but they're almost identical.

 

What surprised me is the e07x is a little longer than the e12r , not that it matters at all but i didn't expect that.

 

The more i carry this light, the more i realize i would still recommend this to people even if the tail cap was WELDED ON. This e07x is awesome, it makes my other lights feel obsolete in a way. my tail threads are a little gritty on one of mine, doesn't even matter. This light is technically near perfect IMO. of course, as long as you are OK with the size. 

 

The E12R looks SO SICK next to the other lights. Almost like a light from the future. The others look super nice too, but there really is something about the E12R that makes it look so tight. I carry it as much as I can but you’re right about the E07 being easier to pocket.

 

it really does, I did not expect to like it as much as I do. Between the e12 and E07x, FireFlies is my go to for edc in as many situations as possible.

Allow me to add a bit of perspective. The KR4 is a rear button flashlight, so the back threads/button área need to be right, for it to work right. On the Fireflies, none of them are rear button.
They both use the rear clip yet fireflies lights have grindy, unannodized aluminum threads. Fireflies has excellent lights this generation. They’d be flawless if they had better QC, a better moonlight and better threads which are significant. The E12R’s tail threads were not so good so unless I wanted to experience the grinding, I had to use the head threads. The head threads were also not so good. They’re so thin, and coupled with the E12R’s relatively large and precarious head, as well as the need to apply a significant amount of pressure due to the stiff springs meant that I was worried and had to be very cautious every time I changed a battery to avoid cross threading the head. This made me dislike the light and forced me to use the usb-c charging every time which is rather convenient but I still want to change batteries without worrying I’d break the light with one wrongly tilted turn. This was a significant issue to me with fireflies lights and not something I worried about with any other light. Changing the battery from the head of the D4V2 is not a good experience because you have to push down pretty hard. The E12R is like that but so much worse, and you can’t even use the tail threads on the E12R while the D4V2 has very smooth tail threads.

 

the d4v2 doesn't have a captured clip though, and if I'm not mistaken ( I don't have mine on my right now) arent the threads anodiZed? So comparing the two isn't apples to apples. 

Also, I've read others worried about striping the head threads of e12r.. I don't see how. Just go slow, and even when I'm not paying attention and talking to someone whil changing the battery I've never come close to the feeling that I was going to strip threads. And if I was I would do a 1/2 turn backward to properly seat the threads before proceeding the correct way to tighten the head. I don't know, I guess I'm willing to take that into account because the rest of the light is so good.

 

also- I have had KR4 (my favorite light) with pretry bad tail cap threads too.

has anyone heard anything from Jack or FireFlies about when he will be listing more e07x pro's? i'm specifically interested in xpl-hi. My biggest regret is i bought 2 in sst20, and didn't get one in xpl-hi before they sold out..

 

If anyone is interested in trading i have a beautiful red e07x with sst20 4000k, that i have Never Carried. just fyi lol. i would want either xpl-hi 5k or 4k.
