So, I was thinking about a small headlamp with 18350 battery for EDC and as a backup light and after searching for smallest/lightest headlamp of that form I realized I can just put a short tube on my H03 or H04 like others have done. I went to Skilhunts website to order a new H04 and BAM there it is… H04 MINI! Look how cute it is
Tried that but light then reflects down from around the edges of the diffuser, it doesn’t seat down far enough. Made a video for Skilhunt at the time and they said the design will be changed on their new lights.
Really! I almost bought the F version because i thought that flippable diffuser feature is neat, quick switch between flood and throw. I wonder why nobody else mentioned this in all the threads and posts ive read about h04 in here and reddit
It’s listed as being 45 grams excluding batty—only 1 gram lighter than full length tube. I guess most of the weight is saved with the difference between 18650 and 18350/cr123.
Seeing as my H04 is already lighter and almost as small as many other 18350 headlamps, I don’t see much advantage to going smaller. But I can’t say I wouldn’t want a shorty tube for it! It doesn’t look like the sell the tube only though.
That little Mini is just the thing I have been looking at as a back up for my ArmyTek Tiara C1 Pro (I'm on #2; the first one failed). I was wondering if the flip-up diffuser feature was handy or just a gimmick. Now I know!
So I got two in the mail, reflector and tir version. I’m sorry I didn’t get the F version - there are subtle design changes to it. If you look at the pictures new models have a spring inside to hold it closed ao no more rattle and the light reflecting problem is easy solved with a bit of paint, nail polish or thicker tape.
