Thread: Smallest, Brightest, Tactical EDC /w Spike bezel out right now?

  1. #1

    Shrug Smallest, Brightest, Tactical EDC /w Spike bezel out right now?

    I need to replace an old Nitecore Defender Infinity that I bought in 2008. Is there anything out better that meets those type of specs but hopefully smaller/brighter?

    I like the spiked bezel of the Nitecore so something similar would be helpful, please list the maker & model thanks

    There is not a lot of AA lights that incorporate or have the option for crenulated bezels.

    Anyway...

    Jetbeam RRT-0 with AA extender and mini blunt or strike bezel. Bug Out Gear USA sells all of them. Those bezels are the most aggressive ones I have seen on any AA-compatible light.

    Fenix LD12 has a crenulated bezel, albeit a mild one.

    Spark SL5 fits your criteria. It's a great little light, although it's biggest advantage is having two buttons and the way it handles 14500's. Still, a very good allround light.

    I'll 2nd the RRT-0. It's my fav edc light. Not too big to carry. And Nitecore makes a great Ti clip that fits it.

    The LD12 has less output than the nitecore and is longer.. the Spark SL5 has many different models, which one are you referencing?

    My nitecore is 93mm in size which is about 3.66 inches long with a instant on output of about almost 200 lumens on a rechargeable CR123 battery

    I am looking for something to beat these specs since this light is about 4 years old now..

    I was looking at this -- http://www.sunwayman.com/html/products/201202/79.html

    230 lumens with length of 75mm which puts it under 3 inches but does anyone know if you can replace the front bezel with something crenulated / spike??

    There are modders on CPF (PrecisionWorks and JHanko are the ones I know of) who can create a new or modify an existing bezel with crenelations. It's generally meant for the V-series Ti lights, but I believe they're the exact same size. Also it'll cost ya.

    1, 2. I haven't seen any lights that have a compatible bezel.

    The Mx20 is 5.5 inches long
    The Rs11 is 6.2 inches long

    nice lights, but I am looking for something small for the backpocket

    Ideal specs

    About 3 Inches Long
    Forward Clicky
    200+ lumens
    Bezel with crenelations/spike

    I cant find anything that fits these though

    Surefire E2DL comes to my mind when I think about small spike bezel.
    Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you.

    Balder HD-1 has a strike bezel and has a U2bin XML

    Any particular reason you want a spiked bezel besides being ripped to shreds if you ever go to court?

    I like the aggressive styling of how it looks

    Sorry, I missed this earlier.

    AFAIK the Spark SL5 models only differ in LED type (XM-L / XP-G) and tint (cool / neutral). That's just a matter of selecting what you want.

    How about a LensLight mini? It's small and you can get a crenulated bezel and single mode 300lm output or plain bezel and dual output of 5/300lm output. You can also purchase bezels separately. Come in tan or black.

    It doesn't have a crenelated bezel, but the Eagletack D25A clicky is about the smallest brightest one out there. 770 OTF lumens with a 14500. POW!!!!!
