hey guys. Looking for a new EDC light. I’ve had a thrunite ti4t Which I liked. I had a streamlight microstream which was good size. I’ve seen the newer flat flashlights but came across a Maratac 14250 light that looked interesting.
I carry a pocket knife daily and don’t like my lights bumping into it. Not that I don’t want it scratched, it’s annoying. The maratac supposedly put out 300 lumens. Any recommendations on single battery lights that will sit comfortably in the bottom of your pocket in this 300-500 lumen or better range? I’d like a lower mode as well for more practical use up close.

+1 for the Acebeam TK16-AL. 1250-1800 lumens on turbo depending on l.e.d. choice. 0.5 lumens on moonlight mode.

My picks are the Manker E14 III (without the extension tube) or Acebeam TK-16.

Peak LED. They're all twisty's with infinite variable output. They have a model that can run on most battery sizes, Nimh or Lion.

I'm good with the Sofirn 1AAA 100 lumen 4K on my keychain. I think the low is around 15 lumens. I run it with a lithium battery. The only thing that makes me sad about it is that I carry an E2e less and less these days. Maybe just the warm weather and long daylight hours lately. Times change whether you like it or not I guess. :(

Thrunite Ti3.
If you reverse the pocket clip onto the other end, makes for a great improvised headlamp with a baseball cap.

I recommend the Wurkkos TS10:
* Low price: less than $20 right now.
* Bright: around 1000 lumens out-the-front
* Superb tint and CRI
* Powerful and easy to use Anduril2 interface.
* Very small and light

Always sort of wanted one of those. What led did you get? And what set up do yo you use for brightness levels? 14500 or 10440? Sorry so many questions but vinh has so many options. Thanks
I got it several years ago with an XPL HI 5000K. Will only run on 10440s, DriverVN2 and I typically leave the mode setting: 1 - 30 - 100 | Memory
