    Sounds good. Almost the same weight and size as the S-mini as is the reverse clicky.

    I love reverse clicky light. I prefer it over forward clicky.

    Might want to get one coz I like compact light in 18650 form like the S-mini.
    Pick the pooch!

    Sounds like a winner so far except for the reverse clicky
    I'm with you on that! I have an E03 which is one of my favorite lights except for the reverse clicky.

    It says AI with a stainless steel bezel, but I think you meant Al?

    Looks good to me. Hopefully the tints will be nice like my NW E03. A NW and a warm is on my list.
    Need...... more...... lights!

    I'm interested as I love a smallish 18650 light but the position of that pocket clip is not encouraging.

    The new Eagletac D25LC2 is pretty darn small as well and has multiple emitter and tint options if your looking for something in 18650 and small that is already out.

    Eagletac D25LC2
    Length: 4.5 inch (114.3mm)
    Body Diameter: 0.85 inch (21.59mm)
    Head Diameter: 0.9 inch (22.86mm)
    1.7 ounces (49 grams)

    The D25LC2 clicky "suffers" from the same pocket clip positioning as this Xeno appears to suffer from (I'm a deep pocket carry guy).

    Non deep carry pocket clip is not a deal breaker, but the twisty D25LC2 with deep carry clip at under 109mm in length is still my favorite 18650 light. But I want to see more of this Xeno

    Looks interesting, lack of a clip on the E03 is one of it's downfalls. I can't tell from the pic if the clip is reversible, if it is and sits high on the tail for deep carry I may pick up one or two. I would prefer a forward clicky too but it's not a deal breaker.

    I love Xeno lights, so this should be good. they've set the bar quite high imo

    A slim 18650 would be a great EDC. A few questions:

    -How well hidden are the blinky modes?
    -Will you be stocking these?
    -Is that an illicit photo?

    I'm checking on the "hiddenness"...

    Unknown, no pricing yet but possible. That clip doesn't sit well with me, after seeing the OE clip that comes with the RRT-01.

    Yes, it's not "out" yet can't "unblur it"

    I'm posting to gauge if it really is the worlds slimmest. Xeno is great in my book because they offer affordable neutral/warm options yet still durable/fashionable.

    I hope this has more than 300 lumens. (I run a TI crAA 14505 in an e03 T4 warm [dog walking light], and that is ~300 lumens)
    I'd like 500 lumens from a U2 cool, 450 lumens from a T6 neutral, and 400 lumens from a T5 warm. (even if that means, 6500K, 5000K, 3500K)

    iirc the OP originally said around 300 lumens with a U2. don't quote me on that though

    Did more searching-Startpage, did some Babelfish/Google translation.
    This looks to be a good light, but one that isn't all that interesting to flashaholics.
    For its modest output-but good runtime, small form factor, 18650 & 2x cr123A; I'd acquire one if the price was $40, 42.5, 45 cool/neutral/warm, but I have the feeling it will be 50% more expensive than that.

    Michael that's a pretty accurate guess.

    It's interesting to flashaholics if purely as a lower cost neutral/warm light.

    Without knurling, that's one slippery light.

    Bears some resemblance to Download's Pocket Rocket. That has no knurling either, but I certainly wouldn't call it 'slippery'. Not sure it's much thicker than this, either.
