Sunwayman C22C (Underappreciated)

I am surprised this light never took off. Its a standard 18650, 1000lm light but it also has a side LED that makes it a bona fide work light with magnetic base. Battery Junction had it on sale for $20 for BF two years ago. I find it very cool.

The C(xx)C series were about the last real flashlights SWM manufactured.
Though the serial numbers (names) and the order of them never made much sense to me.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

Yes, it is a shame. 5-8 years ago this company made awesome lights. They totally fell off the tracks now. Does not even seem they are trying anymore.

I got one, to mod, but early on looked at it, and shelved it for some reason, can't recall. I got a couple C20C's I modded, got at a good price when they were trying to get rid of them. There's also a C23C model now.

The Sunwayman USA site: http://www.sunwayman-usa.com/index.html is out of stock of all flashlights, looks like. Their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/SUNWAYMAN-USA-180197198706957/ looks like not posted to since 2017. USA distributor is in Ct, but SWM is a China based company.

Looks like you can still buy a C23C from Going Gear here, in stock. Whatever around you find in SWM, looks like old inventory.

That sure does look cool. Are they still around?

Edit Took a look at BJ. $57 now. Good deal @ $20
