Is there a decent 18650 light with USB charging under $40?
Update: This thread helped me find the light i was looking for already, but i think this might be a good reference for future buyers looking specifically for USB lights. Keep posting lights if you agree!!
I’d look for a coupon for the Zanflare ZF1. They’ve been selling for as low as $9.99. I think there may be some codes for $12.99 right now.
I have the light that mudguts linked to. I think I got mine on sale for $6. It’s not a bad light for that price, or even $10, but I’d pick another $10-13 ZF1 over it, even if it were on sale for $6 again.
The ZF1 has a choice of two tints, also no concern of accidentally turning it on in a pocket or something, and the USB port cover is a lot more robust than a rubber tab on the other light.
Thanks again! I’ve read some reports of the nitenumen charge problems and this will be a gift so i’m not 100% comfortable with that one. My end goal is a light that the 18650 will be installed in and never leave. So it has to have good charging. I’ll look in the Zanflare F1, i know i’ve seen it but it went off my radar for a minute for some reason.
For anyone interested, the Mh20 is on sale for $45-$50 if you look hard enough. I would definitely pick up another of those if my budget could be over $40.
Dang, never seen that one before but i like it for myself as well lol!! I might consider the stupid eyeball though, be handy at work, although it needs to be recessed. I’d prolly destroy the side light in no time lol.
Great suggestion though, its on the radar for sure!

On the other hand you may get the Zanflare F1 where moving the USB cover ring would be a pain because of oversized orings. I bought mine for a present but it’s not going to happen. It’s also surprisingly big, beam profile is not nice at all - it’s quite ringy, deep reflector means tight spill and … very moderate throw. My MH20 is much better in every way.
