After getting the solarforce Z1 and using it for quite a while - I have become addicted to Cr123 sized lights
Today I went on a little shopping spree.
I picked a V10R U2 and V11R L2-T6 neutral from hkequipment. Also grabbed a M11R T6-4C (my favorite tint) from HIDcanada. It looks like they make quite a few titanium versions of the v10 and v11, but they seem difficult to find and quite expensive. I was looking at a nice m11r sirius ti light... but for the price of the one Ti light I managed to pick up three "everyday" versions.
After looking around - it appears that there are literally 1427 different versions of these lights. Anniversary edition, Ti, Ti2, HCRI, and other various limited runs. They are also modded by many it seems. Ive have seen mule versions as well as triple xpg2s crammed into each one.
There's also some hardcore flashlight porn floating around the Ti versions
Great scott! Thats beautiful!
Anyway - In 2 years of flashlighting I dont know how I missed out on these babies... my wife thinks its funny now that I am scrambling around the house looking through my collection of a few additional lights to sell to cover my costs :P
Anyone else have any of these in their collection? Or any other really cool small cr123 sized lights I should know about?
I have the mini 01 on my keys it is by far my most used light and it makes me happy everyday to have a lot of light by hand all the time.
I always wanted a more fancier light in this size but I cannot justify to buy a small light for so much money.
If there is a magnetic ring light out there with 400lm and for below 25$ which is as small as the mini01 I would be glad to buy it for my keys.
I have 2x v10r Ti. 1 is xpg with SYOCD raised switch, I don’t use it much. The other has a jhanko modded head, vinhnguyen54 modded light engine, SOYCD raised switch and self modded battery tube. It rests on my bedside draw and is possibly my most used light as I don’t always sleep well.
man all these lights looks so cool. something about how their so small and detailed and the designs that were put in it makes the lights look better than most of the larger lights.
i almost got addicted after buying my first cr123 sized light which was the mini 01.
its still actually one of my favorite lights because i have it on my keychain and its bright as heck for the size.
i ended up only buying two more of these sized lights which are both zoomies.
oh actualy i have another on the way…the sc03.
i do like the look of all these mentioned, but im only interested in the ones that are 500+ lumens.
All those pimped out lights look awesome. I’d be scared to leave the house with most of those. Anything in my pocket is subject to getting bashed, beaten or just plain lost. I will be getting the Ti S10 though, which should have a warmer tint than a stock S10. I just got my S15 in Ti and almost wish I would’ve got the S10 instead. Now I have an excuse for both.
I bought two when they were available from Solarforce.
You might try Flashaholics A U.K. seller, they seem to have a stock, it’s how I bought mine, with the “offensive” bezel attached. A bit on the expensive side but they do seem to be very hard to come by. It went through to checkout when I tried it so there’s a good chance that they have some in stock.
