Its a XP-G R4 but i am not sure if its neutral white....there is another XP-G R5 version which is 2 dollars cheaper. So may well be it. Perhaps Ric-CN can comment.
57mm x 12.6mm, what the....
Too bad cannot take 10440, but with the absence of good LiCo for that size and also due to ultra small size (overheating), AA NiMH 800mAH should be decent. You are not planning to gun it at 1.5A, are you?
Fundamentally anything with a clicky adds 10mm
And for a twisty, this is smaller than most!
I havent really looked hard but this one does appear quite small. And its ss too. It must come down to fractions of a mm in every component, because the itp / maratacs are already pretty efficient in their design for length.
Very, very amusing vid indeed! I enjoyed the comments of the midget advanced flashaholic engineer in the video (aka: theoretical photon dispersant efficiency specialist). Im still trying to comprehend the advanced equations he's written on the wall during the live firing test, although its quite obvious that he knows exactly what he's doing (commanding the larger, less intelligent flashaholic to drop the light out of a pyrex cooking dish and onto the floor to simulate a high impact destructive environment). Who else would have been smart enough to think of such a thing? Those two guys remind me of Batman and Robin; just a fantastic team that can conquer any lighting challenges thrown at them. Do they also work on cars and airplanes? If so, I need to hire them! Seriously though, a very cute video and very cool of dad to let his son in on the fun. Watch out for the little guy... he'll be teaching Match a mod or two before he's 6.
Oh... and the light looks pretty good too!
The ITP is a very well made, inexpensive little flame thrower on 10440's. If palmed properly to dissipate heat, it can be kept on in high mode for over a minute. Not that Im recommending or condoning this type of usage but Ive pulled it off many times... so far. There is always the chance that little sucker might suddenly turn itself into potent little shrapnel bomb, but none have yet been reported that I am aware of in that particular model while using LICO's.
Even brighter (with nearly 2x the throw) and far less expensive, is the Tank 007 TK-703. Its AAA NiMH & 10440 LICO friendly and also comes equipped with a XRE instead of the ITP's XPE. IMO, XPG's dont seem to do nearly as well in very small reflectored lights and are extremely hampered in their perceived lumen output when driven at the lower levels of the XRE/XPE in these tiny hosts. I'll leave the XPG lights for AA/14500 and larger reflectored hosts where the increased lumen potential can be more appreciated.
Its amazingly significantly smaller than the a3!!
These are your torches? That one on the right must feel just so nice in the hand, perfect knurling
Im sctually looking for xpg mini torches for the output efficiency and the floodier beam, love floodier besms in pocjet torches ( something i thought i would bever say)
Its a pretty good little light and I do mean little. Its a perfect keychain light. It's not real bright (I think it was measured at 45ish lumens) but it will get the job done while having good runtime. Low is also low enough that its pretty good for dark adapted eyes. You wouldn't want to run this on a 10440 as It has virtually NO heatsinking. This is one you just have to stick with a 1.X volt cell.
Having a tiny neutral keychain light (I have the R4) that is actually usable is amazing to me. And yes, one-handed operation is as easy as could be.
Can you provide the option for a really strong magnet? I understand the magnet isn't the strongest because of concerns with credit cards, but at the same time, having a stronger magnet makes it more practical for those that want it.
Another question - is the negative connection for the circuit board able to be isolated from the metal of the head. As far as I understand, the negative return for the circuit board is connected to the head of the torch, and therefore a spring is not an option for the battery tube. So the battery Will rattle in the off state.
I have http://www.dealextreme.com/p/brinyte-pd03a-ha-iii-cree-q5-wc-5-mode-150-lumen-memory-led-flashlight-red-1-aaa-1-10440-32945 - it's not the smallest, but it's #$$#@ing bright, and a nice neutral tint too. Will only take protected 10440 with slight modification, unprotected fits fine. Lives on my keychain.
