WTB, LEP flashlight

What is the best bang for the buck LEP light? I haven’t really kept up with new lights for the last year or so.

Battery format isn’t really important and long run time isn’t a priority. Tint and CRI isn’t important either. This will be just a quick search around the property light.

A few suggestions would be great. If someone has one they want to get rid of I would be interested in checking it out.

Thanks guys and gals. Happy New Year.

for me, it was astrolux WP3,  https://1lumen.com/review/astrolux-wp3/  

there's active group buy for it.  https://budgetlightforum.com/node/78235

Build in USB C charging, side switch with backlight (only when operating) , 21700 battery.


And you can make cheap diffuser for it.

That looks pretty nice. Thank you. I might just jump on that one if nothing else pops up. I like the 3 modes instead of Andruil or Narsil.

Thanks again.

What? You mean you don’t want candle-mode for a LEP? Shocked

Me, if I were in the market for one, I’d get the Welltool that’s a 1-mode bang-bang LEP.

Also, didn’t VOB or someone have a LEP shootout recently?

Oh, a scarecrow or something was used as a prop, I think.

Single mode would be fine. If I’m using a LEP light I figure I will be focusing on something in the way distance, not using it to get to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

I’ll try and find the LEP shootout. I have a few of those big TIR lensed lights. They are pretty nice and they got me to thinking about the LEP lights.

+1 for the WP3. The only downside is you have to long press to turn off the flashlight. If you are ok with that then defiantly give it a go.

I like that Weltool W4. The price though. Geez. I don’t know if I could bring myself to spend that kind of money on a flashlight. Have to give this some thought.
