18350 L shaped flashlight with USB C

Hello,
I searched everywhere possible and did not find a suitable flashlight.
I am looking for a budget 18350 L shaped flashligt with USB C charging.
Ideal to have a moonlight mode but not required.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Hi and welcome to BLF mlinco319!!
I would suggest to take a look at the Astrolux HL01 with the 18350 tube! It has USB-C charging:

In case you don’t mind having other type of charging, take a look at the Skilhunt H04 mini series, some of which have proprietary magnetic charging:

Thanks!
If I go camping, I only take a USB C. I really like the Skilhunt, but if it runs out in the woods and I don’t have a charger, I’ll be left without a light. Micro USB is also ok because someone could lend it to me.
For example, the Nitecore NU25 is very lightweight, but I don’t like the built in battery because the capacity decreases over time.

I got you, don’t wanna bring many cables for the different things!
And nowadays almost all the mobile phones are USB-C, so someone will have a cable.

Let me just ask, are you familiarized with Anduril user interface/firmware, the one used on the Astrolux headlamp?
It can be configured to have ramping and stepped modes, and it is a light that can also be configured to max thermal control and brightness (among other stuff).

I heard about Anduril. I currently use Convoy S2 + with a classic firmware and a simple Sofirn C01S. There should be no problem with Arduril, I’m a technical type.

Plugging those requirements into my database finds just 1 match: the $40 Jetbeam HR10.

Why do you want to use small battery far way from power socket? Why you want to lose battery capacitance converting power from power bank ? Why just do not buy some more battery like 18650? Charging port in woods is useless at all but only if you have some kind of renewable energy charging device

Thanks. Jetbeam used a picture of a normal 18350 on their page so I didn’t pick up on that. Database has been corrected.

I understand your desire to use USB-C to keep things simple.
if you do not find what you’re looking for you might want to check out the Olight UC charger. It will open up your possibilities.

This x100, or one of the USB-C>Micro-USB adapters with the little rubber retainers to keep it joined to the same cable.

You can buy adapters for the C and micro.
