OK so you’re after a mid size light, with around a 40 mm head size? (Similar size of a C8)
Unfortunately there aren’t many XHP35 tactical lights within the budget price range.
Exactly what is your budget? (Highest price)
I also wish for a budget priced, mid-size XHP35 dual-switch light with a “Direct to high every time” tail switch function like the Acebeam L16 / L30.
But right now that is just wishful thinking because I don’t think it exists.
If I got the L16 I’d want to swap out the CW LED for a NW.
“At the moment Im looking at Nitecore P16, Jetbeam IIM PRO or Lumintop T15S as budget options”
Did you mean the Jetbeam IIIM Pro? And Lumintop TD15S ?
Good find, that one does seem to be a decent XHP35 tactical light.
1-click for ON, and I think it may even start in high mode (not sure) but it does have quick to access turbo from any mode (long press).
Thanks for posting this, for me personally it may be something to consider as well. Just wish it had some knurling on it. And a NW option.
We’re not exactly sure what the OP’s max budget is, but there was a code available for this that lowered the price by $25.00, but it’s no longer working, do some digging might be able to find a deal somewhere, or even request one from one of the aff-linkers here…
